“October golf vacation”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

We were looking for a sunny week of golf in mid October. Korineum golf was offering exactly what we were aiming for! Weather was perfect +25-30C the whole week. So overall we were pleased and happy. The some more details...
Place is more quiet than Turkish Belek resorts. Hotel is right there in the golf course and practice areas, which worked out great for us, as we were keen on doing some putting and chipping after the golf rounds.
We had a room for three that promised a jacuzzi. I was sort of expecting round, big jacuzzi with a sea view, but jacuzzi turned out to be a bath tub with some bubble streams. It is ok after a golf round but don't set your expectations too high.
If you pay for the sea view, there is some distance to the sea. I would still prefer sea view over the other side. Overview is nice towards sea. On the other side, there is only pool and not much else to see. Golf course view is 100 meters away.
This resort is really focused on golf players. Beaches and pools are there but they are not the first notch. Beach is stony with unfinished buildings. Pool is small and shallow (1.40m).
Golf course is beautiful and in excellent shape (green), but prepare for a tough walk and take enough golf balls. You need to stay on the fairway or you lose ball into the bushes. Even if you haven't previously lost many golf balls, take an extra set of balls this time :)
Every fairway is either uphill or downhill. If you are not fit and interested in sweating, rent an electronic trolley or car! Make sure your electronic trolley has a good battery! Our trolley run out of battery 2 times out of four rounds of golf! I did carry my golf bag and it was ok, but all the drinks were in my wife's and daughter's golf bags. On average, you need 1.5-2L of water per round. If you rent a golf car, note that you need to stay on the golf car path. This creates a lot of walking to your ball and back even if you stay on the fairway. Golf cars are not allowed on the fairways unless you have a medical reason. Electric trolley is a good compromise.
Hotel is half board i.e. breakfast and dinner included. It was a bit of a surprise that dinner did not include even water. These are available with separate charge/reasonable price. We did not try ala Carte due to bad reviews by other guest here in tripadvisor. I felt them to be right due to lunch experiences... service was a bit slow. Nevertheless, Club house lunches were good. I loved Quesadilla and capuccino at the club house.
Breakfast included a chef making omelets and pancakes, which was a good bonus.
I would recommend having some Turkish Liras, because it is cheaper than using euros.

Room Tip: Rooms toward sea are better. The higher the better.

We were 14 senior golfers who traveled to Cyprus with no knowledge of this place. Boy is this a great resort. The course is immaculatly kept, very demanding, and is best suited to 0 - 10 hcp, but don't worry enjoy the fabulous views from the tees, the wild life, the immaculate greens. Then a nice cold beer on the terrace where one could get a good lunch served as well.
A good proshop with all the services you need is also available.

The rooms are away from the main building in five separat building, looking north toward the mainland. A tip, book a room with sea view, the sunset is better! The rooms we had were very large, cleen, full aircond. with a good bathroom.
We had a buffee dinner included in our price, and found the food very good indeed. In fact the service we recieved could not have been better.
The hotel has also a bus service to the beach, and to Kyrenia throughout the day. Well worth taking advantage of.
We only had a week , never saw a cloud in the sky, and we all wanted to stay for another week, it was simply that good.

Room Tip: All the rooms in block 5 are large. A sea viewis to be preferred

This is kind of a cross over review with the Malpas - we booked to stay at the Malpas through Cyprus Paradise but when arriving in Cyprus we were advised that the hotel was full and we were to stay here. I would not advise anyone to book through Cyprus Paradise !! They never made a booking for us at the Malpas, they completely miss sold us the holiday.
This hotel - is in the middle of no where - is a golf resort, so hope you like golf - has no entertainment at all in the evenings and a taxi to and from the harbour is £20.00 each way! - the food was good, I enjoyed it - the drinks are reasonable and they do Strongbow - small pool with the same CD played on loop - staff, most are OK there are a few which are rude - very clean - rooms are lovely - the beach area is very nice and much better than the pool area - if you want a very quite holiday this is for you. this wasn't the hotel I would have booked as a young couple, we were made to stay here.

The golf course looks great but as I have never played there, this is a review only of the restaurant. The restaurant can be very good but it does seem to depend on which staff are on duty; in fact, the management may realise this, as they make a big thing of their buffets, where you have little contact with the staff. We have been to private evening functions (buffets) and many of the very popular Sunday lunches (buffets). The Sunday buffet has a very wide range of (mostly local) dishes to choose from and if you are there early, the display looks fantastic. Unfortunately, being popular with families, it can become a bit of a 'dog's breakfast' if the staff do not keep on top of it, tidying up and replenishing the dishes. (The worst Sunday to go is Mothers' Day, when children - and adults - wander around, holding loud conversations across the restaurant.) Once we had learned to be there early, we have had some excellent Sunday lunches, both inside the spacious restaurant, which has large windows overlooking the golf course, and just outside on the terrace, also overlooking the course.

My wife and I have just spent the worst holiday of our lives at this resort.
Let me start by saying the resort itself and location is excellent, but the service and attitude of the staff and management is beyond belief. Everything was too much trouble, the food dreadful. booked to eat in a la carte for which they charge you extra, took us 20 mins at three attempts to order, starter arrived after 40 mins main course after 90 mins, ordered med to well done steak, got pink running with blood rice instead of mash potatoes, when asked for mash brought a small dish of cold mash, tried to see the manager, guess what always in a meeting.room had curtains hanging off rail, wardrobe doors wouldn't open, wallpaper hanging off, then the wondered why we asked to change room cleaners only cleaned the room on the last day when they left an envelope for tips!!

Room Tip: go somewhere else

Golf course is fantastic. Hotel and food are superb. Staff are excellent and very helpful - especially the golf co-ordinator.

Drinks are a bit expensive.

Try the Turkish night on some Thursdays - buffet is excellent and setting is beautiful.

Waited 40 mins between course s
Ordered 3 steaks.all had to be returned to be cooked correctly
Waiter Brough them back to us not cooked correctly again so we never bothered finishing them and left and had bill discounted. Chef should know the difference between rare .medium and well done.
Nice venue shame about food.
