There are lots of really good aspects to this resort but also some discrepencies which prevent me from giving it a higher rating.
The staff were really cheerful, friendly and pleasant; the general amenities were very clean and the outside pool was a good size for a small hotel. The chef was so cheerful and friendly and produced really tasty dishes eg stuffed vegetables; stuffed chicken escalopes; interesting mezes. We were half board and were delighted to find that the evening meal was soup, mezes, a choice of 2 or 3 mains (but you could have a little of each) and fresh fruit & a small pastry.
Can you sense the 'but'? One night there were fewer guests staying for the meal and it was so disappointing: soup or halloumi; chicken kebab or kofta; pastry or fruit and the service was really poor! The assistant director was apologetic and offered us complimentary coffee and brandy. The next day the barbecue was included in the rate even though it had been suggested that there were would be an additional charge.
On our arrival we were shown to a room even though we had booked a villa and were told that the villas were fully booked. It was sorted out the next day and an apology made but it did delay our unpacking and wasn't a relaxing start to the holiday. When we settled into the villa we found out that you couldn't take any food and drink into the kitchen area and the information about the hotel amenities was very sparse. For example,there was no information about check-out times, the use of the indoor facilities or about towels for the pool. The villa was in need of renovation - cracked tiles, noisy air conditioning and a plastic bath that wobbled when you showered. It was very spacious, though, and had a lovely terrace with views towards Kyrenia and the sea.
The reception manager told us that on our last day that there was no courtesy room available but there was a shower by the pool. This was a cold shower in public - so fine if you wore your swimming costume!
The hotel is in a lovely position - surrounded by trees with stunning views towards the sea and to the mountains behind. However, although mention is made of a busy main road, we didn't realise that this was a dual carriageway that was impossible to cross safely or walk along side as there was no footpath. This meant that to leave the hotel you had to have a taxi (£3.50 approx to Kyrenia) or have a car. The courtesy bus was only available once a day.
Overall it was a lovely hotel and we were made to feel welcome - a pity that some aspects were disappointing.

Room Tip: The block where we stayed on the first night (room 139) had been recently built and to a higher spec than the original build to the villa we were in. It had good views and although it overlooked the service road, it was quiet. Otherwise the ones overlooking the pool looked good. No lifts, though.

I have stayed once before at the Onar Holiday Village in Kyrenia, and loved it the first time. It is even better now. The staff couldn't be friendlier, the food is plentiful and is by and large good, prepared by the most cheerful chef I have ever seen. I'd like to bottle his smile! The rooms are spotless, large, cool and airy. Although I didn't have much of the sea view, the mountains were beautiful. The tours we had around the island, led by our wonderful guide and manager, were fascinating and insightful. I'm tempted to go back again! Thank you to all the management and staff on this holiday!

Returned for the third time to Onar Village to find it improved again...

The staff are always ready to help - Very attentive!

The pool is very clean.

The rooms are clean and cool (with the aid of the air con)

We travelled with our 3 year old and 9 month old who loved it all and will definitely go back another time.

Would recommend going here.

We have just returned from Onar, having been there each year for the past 10 years. This time we had our 2 little grandchildren with us. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating and paid much attention to the little ones. The place is a haven of peace and we are so grateful for it. Thankyou to all at Onar who make us so welcome.

Ten days in a villa organised by Noble Caledonia. Efficient transit from Larnaca airport.
Rooms are simple, comfortable & spacious, fully equipped kitchen but no crockery & cutlery - just kettle & cups. WiFi everywhere in the complex.
Excellent service from all staff. Breakfast selection improved after having a quiet word!
Great lunches by the pool, and modest dinners (buffet catering for our group of 18 travellers).

Interesting tours to historic sites well organised by Kyrnia Travel.

Nick

Room Tip: Extra for a villa seemed worth it. Use A/C to keep out motorway noise.
