Whenever we visit Kyrenia we always stay at the Colony. The hotel is situated perfectly, the staff are always attentive. We always receive a warm welcome back. All the rooms are very well equipped and are sumptuously appointed. The spa area and pool are excellent. I would recommend having a massage, very relaxing. The new automated windows around the pool...

The pool was never busy so we always had sun loungers without a problem. Rooftop pool and you can hear the traffic, but honestly not a problem. Only...

Extremely good value for money and the service was helpful, friendly, professional and generally first class, particularly on Reception. The only exception was the rooftop pool...

I have visited this hotel many times and in atmosphere and decor it is five star. I could not believe the atrocious service and food in the rooftop restaurant that we encountered today.
