“Great hotel,”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2013

I travel to this hotel, mostly because of the beautiful beach, the hotel is top notch, it's so nice to spend the day on the luxury sun beds, occasionally getting in for a swim, then later to the hotel for lunch. It's so peaceful, even in peak season. I really recommend this hotel. Just love it. Plus it's a ten min drive to the old wall city of famagusta , you can't leave without seeing this, there are many shops old bazzers and medieval church's and buildings to see, plus resturants and cafes
Famagusta harbour , it's easy to get to if your staying in Greek Cyprus, very close to protaras Pernera area, about 30/40 min drive

We went to the Palm Beach because its photo in the brochure was attractive, but the place itself is even better. although at first it seems a bit of a dull location, a walk through the building and a look at its beach setting shows that it is ideally placed for a quiet, sun-filled holiday. We cannot wait to go back. Everything is well cared for and presented. Room - very comfortable. Restaurant - airy and quiet. Food - choice of buffet or a la carte. Both are excellent. Staff - discreet, but friendly. We can't wait to go there again.

Never been to northern cyprus before but thought it worth a visit and this Hotel made for a very good base. Although we stayed out of season service was excellent it has we understand been refurbished recently and the end product was worth the effort. Staff especially the Customer Liaison Manager were all very helpful even if they only had a limited understanding of English. We would definitely go back to this very comfortable Hotel.

I work for a Tour Operator and this Hotel of late has been a very popular seller, Thought I'd find out why(& Increase my knowledge).
Room was VERY comfortable, Large sea facing balcony, Large Double sunbed,( Junior suite) views of the Ghost town to the right and waves lapping on the beach below, meals were buffet style, varied and plentiful, staff throughout the Hotel /Grounds, smart and courteous, too numerous to mention but I found all the little extra touches made this (For me) a firm favorite, I will certainly stay there again and recommend it 110% to my Clients.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a Sea view and if the budget allows, Junior suite for couples, Residents suite for...

Our first visit to this lovely hotel. We are in agreement with other reviews that the staff are quite exceptional. Ours was a 2 night stay from the Paphos end of the island to celebrate my wife's birthday. Hotel was very quiet and as a result we were delighted to be upgraded to a suite-would consider booking one next time as the extra space was perfect. Spa facilities were excellent. Would recommend booking a sea view .Incredible choice of food for breakfast but was expecting more than a buffet from a 5 Star establishment for an evening meal - the food was very good however but the ludicrous mark up on the wine is probably what you would expect in the circumstances!! Settled just for a glass on our second evening....
Would we go back? Almost certainly

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay with us at Arkin Palm Beach hotel.
We very much appreciate your positive comments regarding our personnel, spa and breakfast buffet.

With regards to dinner, guests who are on a Half Board package have a buffet selection included. We do have an A La Carte menu in our restaurant and would suggest, if you prefer on your next visit, to book Bed & Breakfast and order from our A La Carte menu in the evenings.

We feel that our wine prices are very reasonable for a five star hotel in comparison to other parts of Europe and Turkey.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Arkin Palm Beach hotel in the future.

Throughout 2012 we have stayed at this exceptional hotel throughout the seasons, spring,summer and New Year.Allways, great service, qulaity food,an amazing New year and staff and managment that really care. The location cannot be faulted,right on the beach and a stroll into the old town.The staff really do care and make you feel wellcome. For a chill out,relaxing time cannot be faulted, tthe quality of the fixtures and furniture radiates from the bedrooms to the lounge and public areas,and after all the quality food, a super gymn to work of the pounds. We will return again.

Room Tip: Must have a sea viw room to fully appreciate the location

It is five star hotel, rooms are really good, but this 5 star is to much for this kind hotel. Localization of hotel is perfect because hotel has own beach, so when you look out the window you can feel very relaxing.
