“Magical..... :)”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

This was my 4th time visiting Onar village.... and I have to say that it was the most memorable stay yet!!!!! I went on my own, however this is an ideal holiday to be enjoyed by all!!!! The breakfast is good, and the food is generally good all round!!! For me it was like going home, as I got to see all the staff again whom I now consider friends!!!! :)

The rooms are basic... but quiet....nice views....very clean... and spacious so what more can you ask for???? I am planning to go again at some point, so watch this space!!!!

Enjoy People.... and have a fabulous time!!!! Any space in your suitcases???? LOL

Room Tip: To get a good room, ask reception if you can have a pool view in one of the hotel rooms.

Friendly and helpful waiters

Some ideas and tips to attract more customers would be:
Flowers on the tables every night
Candles on tables every night
Background music
Cut overgrown tree branches that prevent a good view of Kyrenia from villas

Just returnd to Blightly from heaven, heaven being Onar Holiday Village set in the mountains above Kyrenia. What a wonderful place, the gardens must be the best in Northern Cyprus, the views are to die for. Not forgetting our friend the large ginger tom who came for breakfast every morning. The food and service at Onar as excellent, always freshly cooked and nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The pool (indoor and out) are kept in tip top condition like all of Onar. There is a free shuttle service to Kyrenia every day with another new min-bus arriving the day we were leaving but taxis's are very cheap anyway. The hotel room was relaxing and adequate for my husband and myself. In the evening or early morning it is relaxing to walk around the gardens with its lovely trees and flowers. We saw the children catered for, and the staff will arrange room service at any time of the day or night. Go and enjoy this place called heaven I have now been spoilt and do not want to go any where else. Cheap flights to South Cyprus now make this holiday cheaper. We have been there many times in the summer months too and can recommend it to all our friends.

The one drawback to this hotel is the impossibility of walking into Kyrenia (or anywhere else outside the grounds) but taxis are cheap. Car hire is very cheap especially outside of high seaon. It cost me £63 for a brand new Ford Fiesta for 3 days with nil insurance excess.

The room was comfortable, the views outstanding, and the staff friendly and helpful. Food was generally very good but choice at breakfast was a bit limited. As with everywhere in North Cyprus it is impossible to get a good cup of (non Turkish) coffee. Nescafe reigns supreme.

Just spent 4 nights at Onar Village. The staff were very helpful, friendly and efficient. The room I had was not luxurious but perfectly satisfactory with a large built-in cupboard, hair-dryer in bathroom - a small problem with the toilet cistern was fixed in a matter of hours. There are no tea/coffee making facilities and there are quite a lot of steps. There are indoor and outdoor pools and various massages and exercise classes are available. Views are very good. I enjoyed my stay. The only thing that counts against Onar Village for me is its location just outside and above Kyrenia( I personally would have prefered to be able to wander round the harbour in the evening) but there's nothing to be done about that.

We stayed here for one week and enjoyed it very much except for a couple of things...
Firstly, the hotel has what must be the best views in northern Cyprus and the views, through the well-tended gardens over the town to the sea is magnificent. However, I think the hotel relies on this too much, we were first shown to a room overlooking the pool in the old block which was decidedly unsuitable - in dire need of refurbishment, tiny bathroom with no shelf space for toiletries etc. and nasty plastic shower curtain over the plastic bath.There was a single wardrobe with about 8 hangers for the two of us and no drawers. The following day we were moved to a better room in the new block. But, be warned - anyone who can't manage steps avoid this place! There are a dozen or so steps up from reception to the hotel itself then two flights to the accommodation blocks and four more flights to our room on the second floor - no lift - and in the intense heat this can prove painful for anyone with joint or arthritic conditions. Our new room was larger and had a nicer bathroom with room for toiletries etc. and glass shower screen. The beds in both room were concrete-hard and the pillows are foam and lumpy. Not condusive to a good nights kip. The cleaning of the room seemed to be on a hit and miss basis (more 'miss' than hit) and the sheets were not large enough to tuck around the mattress sufficiently. These little things could be so easily rectified and make such a difference but seem to be low down on the managements' scale of priorities sadly. The room had two chairs and a small coffee table but there was plenty of room at either side of the bed for a larger chest of drawers or more comfortable chair - just wasted space. However, the outdoor pool area and gardens were immaculate, as were the restaurant facilities, and the food was good if sometimes repetitive. The staff we found to be very helpful and courteous on all counts and nothing seemed too much trouble. The 'once-a-day' courtesy bus was a bit limiting, 10.30 into town, back at 4pm but we used local taxis to get round this. Taxis or a hire car are essential unless you plan to spend your holiday just lazing around the pool. There are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room so take your own kettle etc. The two plastic chairs and table on the balcony are a bit of a let-down but are adequate. The hotel really has the most glorious position overlooking the whole of the bay and we enjoyed our stay very much.

I spent two weeks at the Onar Village. If the point of a hotel is to make you feel welcome and relaxed, then this is a good place to stay. Some of the fittings in the rooms are a little past their best and if this is vital to you then you may wish to go elsewhere. We are vegetarian and they were very helpful, producing some very good non-meat meals that I felt were better than the average hotel fodder. The pools and the recreational areas were well looked after and the flowers and gardens are attractive.
The once a day minibus is a bit of a pain, especially when the driver sometimes like to do errands on the way back in the afternoon, but you can work around this with the use of the occasional taxi.
