All the rooms are very well equipped and are sumptuously appointed. The spa area and pool are excellent. I would recommend having a massage, very relaxing. The new automated windows around the pool... More

Stayed 8 nights at The Colony and really enjoyed the pool, gym and spa. The food was good at breakfast and lunch. We mainly had dinner out so can't comment on that. The pool was never busy so we always had sun loungers without a problem. Rooftop pool and you can hear the traffic, but honestly not a problem. Only... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our week here - the hotel is beautifully maintained and offers excellent, spacious accommodation in a very convenient location both for exploring Kyrenia on foot and for travelling further afield by car. Extremely good value for money and the service was helpful, friendly, professional and generally first class, particularly on Reception. The only exception was the rooftop pool... More
