This was our first trip to North Cyprus. We booked a week at the Malpas and a week at the Pia Bella in Kyrenia town.
Having read other reviews before booking we knew what to expect and weren't disappointed. The rooms, facilities, food and staff at the Malpas were all good. We stayed for a week on half board at a cost of £56 per night (for 2 people), which we thought was very reasonable. Only issue was the price of drinks but we expected this as it was mentioned in other reviews. A lady we spoke to, who has stayed at the Malpas a few times, said she had mentioned this to the manager who responded " 5 star hotel 5 star prices". A consequence of these prices is that everyone disappears after dinner to consume the bottles they have "spirited" away in their rooms. Don't go near the minibar in the rooms; £6.80 for spirits and £3.60 for a tin of coke!
The hotel is about 8Kms out of Kyrenia so if you havent got a car a taxi will cost about £10.
We l flew out the day before the volcano erupted. Some guests had to stay at the hotel awaiting flights. It was good to see the hotel charging their normal price for these extended stays. I wonder if this would be the case in some other cities/resorts?
Overall we enjoyed our stay at the Malpas and would stay there again.
