Our luxury hotel is situated 10 miles west of Kyrenia in a particularly tranquil area with a wonderful mountain backdrop and spectacular views of the Mediterranean sea.Accommodation is of a high standard and the crescent shape of the hotel ensures that every room has the benefit of superb sea views. Each room overlooks the private swimming pool and bar area. The hotel has 64 rooms, each with an en-suite bathroom, minibar, satellite television, air-conditioning and direct dial telephone. There is an indoor restaurant and lounge bar. Hotel has a small sandy beach which is located 200 yards from the hotel and several local restaurants are within walking distance. An ideal setting for those seeking a peaceful relaxing holiday. You can go by frequent local minibus (dolmush) from the front of the hotel into Kyrenia which takes about 20-25 minutes and only costs 50 pence per person each way. In all of Northern Cyprus, Hotel Sempati is one of the best value and friendliest, offering an excellent quality of service at very reasonable prices.

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.

Sent from Samsung Mobile on O2 We arrived on the 11th Febuary 2020 after a 4 and a half flight. The transfer took roughly 1 hour 30 minutes, which meant we arrived about 21.30/45. The bungalow we were given (1111) was awful, the rooms were damp, with condensation on the walls, and the bed was old/saggy and also damp. But seeing as we were tired we decided to freshen up and go for food and drink. As we left the bungalow, the bar closed, which meant no food. Water and beer could be purchased from the night porter if required! Luckily we had a snack on the plane going over as we are both diabetic so that sustained us. That night was awful, what with the dampness, and a loud air conditioner, we hardly slept. The next morning we went for breakfast, and was given the choice of either a Turkish style breakfast ( I personally don't like eating vegetables for breakfast) along with boiled eggs, and a VERY thin omelette with NO filling! You had a choice of cereals and toast (the toaster either burnt, or left the bread very light done. Coffee was black (even from the machine until someone filled up the milk dispenser). We met our Rep (Ingen) who got us moved to another room within the hotel itself (not to good an idea as my partner has difficulty with stairs etc due to a heart condition), but we were left with no choice. He said he could move us to another hotel, but was unsure if THIS hotel would still charge us, as well as accommodation at the new 1. We declined the offer to move as we are easy going, and wanted to start our holiday. We signed up for a few trips with the rep, and that was the last we saw of him for the 2 weeks we were there. The staff were pleasant enough, and did what they could for you (The winter months manager even took me to the local pharmacy for tablets) so my thanks to him again. The hotel itself is about a 15 - 20 minute taxi drive away from Kyrenia, and about 5 minute drive from the nearest DECENT restaurants. We were later to find out that ourselves and another couple were the only occupants in the whole hotel, this lasted about 3 days. We had NO swimming pool for the first 9 days as it was under maintenance. We went for tea only to be told that there was a VERY small selection available, and ALMOST everything came with chips, even when we never ordered chips! But what really got to us was the "so called SUNNY BÈACH" cove about a 3 minute walk away. This is apparently a big selling point of the holiday, well as you will see in my photos and video's, it was a disappointment to say the least. Just be warned that what you ask for at your agents is not all that is given.

First. Always check if they changed the linens after previous guests. They don't do this always. Just this one thing is enough to understand that place is the worst hotel I have ever visited! Second. The beds are very old and completely uncomfortable. Even on the cot I can sleep better than on their "bed".

Dear Guest, We are sorry to hearing from you that not enjoyed your stay. customer satisfaction is very important for us, we like to hear all comments and improve our service However your comment is not acceptable, you are saying we gave you dirty room ? never ever! We always change linens, and everyday, and if you didn't like the room or bed why you didn't ask reception to change your room, or linen. ?

We have stayed here last couple of years but this year we were staying with friends elsewhere. We were greeted like long lost friends, even the cleaner recognised us. Lovely welcome and nice to meet the friendly staff who certainly make this a lovely welcoming hotel. Discussed plans to book next year. Pool was lovely and clean as usual as was the rest of the hotel. Lovely lunch and nice cold beer very reasonably priced.

Staff as usual very welcoming and friendly, and its good to see old faces. New manager isn't very proactive though. Parts have been refurbished but some areas are still looking tired. An example only a couple of the blue night pool lights work, which really spoils the effect. Breakfast is the usual eggs, salad, olives, meats and cheeses-the usual for this end of the med.- the same since I first came to the east med. some 45 years ago. Bar snacks are good value and better quality than the evening meal, which I think is overpriced compared to local restaurants. Great to meet up with family members again.
