I booked a 2 night stay here for my family for when we visited some family members who live in North Cyprus. I booked this online direct from their own website (riversideholidayvillage.com) in December 2015, nearly 8 months before our holiday in August 2016. The rooms (2 adults and 1 child per room) were for the 'Premium Hotel Rooms' that... More

What you see on their website is not the same as in reality! Very old furniture, bathroom and etc. The rooms are not really clean; hence, one might see all sort of insects and mice in a room! One should pay a lot for every services including for very poor wifi internet. Above all, the hotel does not have accommodating... More

Thought I'd driven too far until my satnav told me to turn left up a dirt track. Lack of signage and overgrown gardens made it difficult to orientate yourself and find reception. On entrance I was surprised at the dated decor and after finding someone who spoke more than basic English greetings we were directed to our room on a... More

I am reviewing as this hotel always comes up as a package destination. Staff are never approachable nor friendly. They kept a chicken coup that stank. Cats everywhere and not fed. No freebies eg iced cream. Worse if all the self catering house had a trickle of water in the shower. I complained but the alternatives were no better. Dirty... More

We stayed here the 2nd week of July and have stayed here over the last 4 years. Sadly we probably won't stay here again! It's been enlarged & has grown too big! The reception staff cannot cope when they have a large number of clients checking in or out! It's chaos most times when you have to go there. We... More

We have stayed several times at the Riverside. The villas are currently being upgraded but not before time. 'Premium hotel rooms' are highly recommended, well decorated and furnished with modern en-suite, air con , fridge and balcony. Ideal for families or couples as there is a separate kids pool. Just a 10-15 minute walk to the beach and other bars... More
