Almond Holiday Village
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 13, 2008

We have just returned from another excellent holiday at the Almond. We have nothing but praise for the family who run this spotlessly clean and welcoming complex.
This is around our sixth visit, in fact we held our wedding reception there last year and they continue to improve the complex each time we go.
The food is of a very high standard and must be sampled. If you are looking for a quiet, relaxing holiday in a beautiful setting it would be hard to better the Almond.
We have already booked for June 2009.

My husband and I started our trip to Cyprus with 6 nights at Almond Village.

Thanks to Tripadvisor reports we found a gem. On our first night, following a pre-booked taxi from Larnaca airport, we had a beautiful meal (all freshly home cooked). The Steak Diane was the best I had ever tasted - cooked to perfection!!

We had a room in the hotel which was a good size & overlooked the pool. Lovely and clean - only 3 small points. The pressure in the shower was very low & it took sometimes 10 minutes to get any hot water (which is a shame when water is a precious commodity). Also as we weren't staying for a minimum of 1 week we did not get any tea/coffee in our room.

We hired a car for 3 days (organised through the hotel) & explored the area. We were a little disappointed with the beaches - not as good as we had expected except for Palm Beach at Famagusta which was beautiful as well as eiry due to the Buffer Zone.

The pool was lovely & brilliant for swimming a few lengths in each morning.

The only thing that would have improved our stay at Almond would have been the ability to decide to eat at the hotel after 5.30pm. All orders for evening meals had to be in by this time as all food is freshly cooked, but there were a couple of days when we had been out & didn't arrive back until after 5.30 & would have just loved to stay in and eat rather than search for somewhere to eat.

We ate one evening at the Light of Bengal (a newly opened restaurant on the main road) - in walking distance from Almond, which we would recommend.

Another evening we made the mistake of eating at Hillview when there was a large party of ex pats. My sea-bass was deep-fried!!! We escaped very quickly & would not recommend this restaurant unless you like karaoke and poor quality food!

Only shock for us was how expensive everything was in North Cyprus. Meals & drinks were more expensive than the UK.

We would most definitely return to Almond Village - all of the staff were very friendly & helpful

We recently spent a week at Almond Village and we could not have asked for more. The transfer from Larnarca was trouble free and despite the early hour we received a friendly greeting and were taken to our clean and spacious villa with the welcome air conditioning. The views were spectacular and the pool lovely. The staff were without exception friendly, polite and helpful and certainly made every effort to ensure our holiday was everything we had hoped for. The food was excellent and the brandy sours the best I have tasted anywhere.

lovely pool , food and rooms. very clean and staff friendly. BUT and this is a big gripe NO CUTLERY OR CROCKERY IN THE ROOMS AT ALL ! only mugs and glasses. our children are not massive breakfast eaters so we oject to paying for breakfast . we had to buy plastic plates and cuterly from the supermarket ! it seems a minor detail but it was a real pain.we asked if they could provide some and we were told no. web site gives out impression of basic kitchen facilities very missleading. such a shame . plus be very careful walking along main road no paths and cars drive fast not good with young children . you need a car or lots of taxis.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your review and pointing out that we have a lovely pool, lovely food , very clean rooms and friendly staff. As a family this is what we aim for and it is our pride and joy to recieve positive feedback.

Going by your below review it seems that you have booked for a “Room Only ( RO) Mini- Villa” with us, which on our website and e-mails “clearly state” that in these accommodations we offer "tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge ONLY". On our website we do not mention the words “ basic kitchen facilities” for our BB/RO or HB accommodations. On the other hand we have “Self Catering bunglows” which offer “cutlery and crockery aswell as cooking facilities”.

We are very sorry if you have missundertood or missread our wesbite and e-mails but we can not understand how our website is missleading....please advise?

We reccommend that all guests read through our accommodations link on our website to find the most appropriate accommodations for themselves, which in your case would have been a SC bungalow.

We are very sorry that this has caused disapointment for you on your holiday although you kindly pointed out that our pool/food/rooms are lovely and very clean & staff friendly.

Best Regards,

Ali Riza Asik
Owner

all the arrangements made for collecting us from Larnaca were as agreed-thru the border with no effort at all & arrived at a little green 'oasis' in Alsancak, every member of the team here clearly worked very hard to make sure we had a good time, the car hire was the easiest ever!!
Our 'villa' was more than adequate, spotlessly clean & with efficient air con,plentiful hot water etc.
The gardens really were a delight to sit in,paths were swept twice daily & the gardeners were always happy & pleasant.
We decided to try the restauranr on our first night & were genuinely pleased with the fod on offer, fresh, well cooked & presented to a very good standard indeed, in fact, we ate 'in' on several occasions , the prices were very competetive with local eating places & the hotel were also helpful with recommendations for eating elsewhere. Its often said that " they couldn't have been more helpful! & in the Almond-this was true!!, altho the hotel was full for most of our 2 weeks it bever felt crowded or busy/ noisy
Many thanks to Ali & the family for making us feel so welcome
