This hotel looked after its guests when other more expensive hotels turned out their guests and closed the doors. We stayed at the Sempati from the 4th March. We should have returned on the 18th to England, but due to the current crisis, Gochan and his staff made us welcome until we could get a flight home. Don't judge a hotel by previous reports. We would stay there again and we thank them for their help and kindness.

This is a beautiful place, nestled between the mountains and the sea. The food is good; the staff is friendly; the atmosphere is relaxed and calm. I highly recommend the place to families and couples, and to anyone who wants to spend time in Cyprus away from the hustle and bustle of Kyrenia or Nicosia. The owners—Samiye, Bora, and Erkan—are professional and kind, and the staff (especially Henry) are patient, friendly, and prompt. This hotel has real character and charm, and I heartily recommend it to all.

Lovely family-fun hotel near Kyrenia but away from all the hustle and bustle. The staff are really friendly and helpful, and the food is fresh and tasty. There’s a gorgeous pool to spend your time relaxing by. This is the perfect base from which to explore the island—Cypriot hospitality at its best!

Old pillows on the beds. Everything dusty. Noisy air conditioning. Floors not cleaned properly. No lift and handrail only on one side of the wide staircase. Food rather ordinary. Noisy dogs at night. Area dilapidated. They really need to up their game. On the one hand, credit for great views but a long way out of Kyrenia city in slow-moving busy traffic. Might be nice if you had good earplugs and wanted to paint scenic pictures or write your novel.

Arrived by taxi , and driver spent 5 minutes trying to find someone in the hotel , he left and we sat in reception for another 5 mins , after shouting someone arrived and gave us a key card , didn’t ask our names or anything .
Room was awful and dirty , so we asked to be moved , next room was slightly better but bathroom was awful . Went down to look for a restaurant for that night , couldn’t find any , apparently any decent restaurants are a 5 minute drive away , packs of dogs roaming around the road outside the hotel . Found the “ sandy beach “ ! Covered in rubbish , plies of building rubbish around plus a lovely burnt out car . Beach is a very small storey cove .
Had a meal at the hotel , two chicken skewers , pitta bread , and a salad . ! That was it .
Breakfast was a coffee , cereal and a omelette.
Checked out 20 mins later , we were the only guests in the hotel .

This is a cracking hotel and I am surprised that there are so few reviews if it on the net. To say too much would be to spoil the magic that is Northern Cyprus. Save to say that this hotel is perfectly placed for an enjoyable stay on the island. There is no doubt that it is ‘budget’ priced, but the standard of the rooms and facilities are excellent value for money, moreover, the attentive service and helpful advice is priceless. My wife and I have stayed at this hotel on a number of occasions and at different times of the year. I have also confidently recommended Hotel Sempati to friends, all of whom appear to share our enthusiasm.

I have just returned from my 4th visit to Hotel Sempati and have to say that once again we have been made to feel extremely welcome.
The accommodation is clean and comfortable, food plentiful and all the staff are most helpful and friendly. Not only that but Erkan and his family make you feel as though you are part of their family.
The hotel has a very nice swimming pool area and is located just a short walk from the sea and there are several restaurants within walking distance. It is in a quiet area away from Girne yet ideally situated for exploring the TRNC. There are some marvellous walks and car journeys where you can enjoy spectacular views from up in the hills and forests.

We were in the minority. The majority of the guests at the Sempati (which was fully booked) had been there a number of times over the last few years. Some had already been before this year. One family we spoke to had visited the hotel on no less than 8 occasions.
The care and attention lavished on the guests has to be experienced to be believed. Nothing was too much trouble. If there was nothing on the menu that you liked, ask for what you wanted, and they would try to oblige you. The food was excellent and the service by the staff even better.
The pool was of top quality the rooms cool and comfortable. A car hire service is available at the hotel which provides an oasis of comfort and care from which to enjoy the beauty of North Cyprus.
I cannot imagine anywhere the could provide a better holiday experience than the Hotel Sempati; whether you wish to go searching for the places of interest that abound in the area or simply to chill out with a cool drink round the pool.
My thanks go to Erkan and his staff.

Booked with cyprus paradise holidays a few times now and recently stayed at the sempati hotel. Very warm welcoming, lovely staff.. The views from the hotel rooms are stunning!! Mountain/sea views - ask for a superior room (newer build) well kept gardens and lovely little cove of sea at bottom.. will definitely be returning.

Answer from Alan C

The Cabin on the Lapta strip has mid week and week end live music varying dates depending on time of year. If light straight along the walkway, if not a taxi. If you like live mike events the bar up the road from the hotel is lively Saturday nights. Otherwise its Kyrenia town with various casino's and a couple of night clubs.

Answer from Gary O

Yes but just around the reception area, also it can reach as fat as the outside tables, one of the best places to sit is on the swing chairs by the entrance, or first floor centre rooms. There is a separate WI-Fi at the bar but didn't use it

Hi Tracey-Ann, I went with my daughter in July and it is a quiet hotel as far as entertainment which suited us. If you speak to the reception staff, which we found very good and helpful, they can help you organise excursions. You can get the Dolmus mini bus in to Kyrenia and there is plenty to do there. I saw several women travel alone on that. One of the things we did was the Jeep Safari and it was fantastic. It is run by James and Alice, two expats, and it was such a great day out learning about the history of the area and the wildlife etc. I know they are on TripAdvisor as I reviewed them, so if you were interested you could look up their details. We really enjoyed North Cyprus and found the people to be friendly and helpful. I felt safe the whole time I was there and would go back. Take good sun cream though as the sun is really strong and whilst most things are reasonably priced there sun cream was quite expensive. I hope you have a lovely time
