My boyfriend and I stayed at the Riverside for ten days. It was our first stay there and I can say we will definitely go back.
The grounds are just beautiful with the villas nestled in between lime trees and palm trees. The whole complex seemed like one big garden and we always saw people working on keeping the plants alive and looking pretty. The staff were very helpful and friendly and our villa had the most comfortable armchairs and sofas in the lounge to relax in after a day out exploring the country. We rented our car right from the Hotel and even though we went for the cheapest model it took as faithfully across the country and even battled its way through the most remote parts of it without braking down! And we do suggest you get a car because if you want to see the country you will need it.
The buffet offered a great variety of food and the dessert buffet is heaven for children. We can highly recommend to eat out once in a while though, because we have discovered several lovely restaurants doing so. One in the centre of Kyrenia that we can def. recommend is Ezic Chicken. Our taxi driver pointed it out to us when we first arrived and it was really worth it. Be aware though, the portions are massive though the price is small.
Overall it was a very pleasant stay and we enjoyed the holiday.
