Every aspect of the hotel is beautiful. From the minute you walk in you know you're in for a treat. The decor is sumptuous,the staff friendly and attentive,the food amazing,the rooms understated elegance and spotlessly clean,the spa tranquil,the beach is wonderful and the service second to none. Totally recommend a stay at this luxury hotel,it's well worth it!

Room Tip: If you can,go for a sea view room,as the view is magical.

My wife and I have just returned from a three night visit with a couple of friends to this hotel. We were allocated the rooms which we had requested with a sea view The rooms were well equipped clean and very comfortable. The meals, Breakfast ( served outside ) and the Evening meals were superb.The staff were extremely friendly and helpful.The beach was clean and plenty of sunbeds available. The bar area was very comfortable and again friendly staff.I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, I could not fault it in any way.
We arrived at this hotel at about 3am, but should have arrived the evening before for an evening meal which we had booked.The reason for this delay was Turkish Airlines. We flew from Manchester to Ercan, N.Cyprus via Istanbul. The aircraft was 20mins late arriving at Istanbul which did not give us and other passengers on our flight enough time to make the transfer from one gate to the departure gate. When we arrived at the departure gate for our onward flight, although the aircraft was still there with the Air boarding bridge still attached, they refused to allow us all on board. We were transferred onto the next available flight to Ercan which meant a wait for 5 hrs. at the airport.This meant we had to contact the hotel to advise them of the delay and also the car hire company who were waiting for us at Ercan with our rental car.This rather spoiled the start of our holiday as up to this point the flight had been comfortable, the on board staff excellent and food and drinks faultless.Why they could not have held the onward flight back for 10mins or so is beyond me especially as it was the same airline..

Room Tip: Request a room with a sea view.

I agree with all positive comments regarding this unusual hotel. Very attentive staff and cleanliness was immaculate. We stayed for one week in early May - unfortunately weather was still a little unsettled. Lovely private location, albeit close to the forbidden city, which only added to the unique position.
Our room was 3rd floor end room, and although we missed out on a sea view, we were quite happy with the overall views of the area and neat gardens, only downside was a barking dog from nearby apartments.
Would suggest a little more shelving and towel rails in the bathroom as it was a struggle to wedge towels onto one small rail.

Room Tip: 3rd floor back of hotel preferable as balcony gets sun most of the day

We stayed with another couple for three nights and thought the standards were excellent. Our terms were half board but unfortunately we missed our first evening meal - our Turkish Airline flight connection from Istanbul to Ercan was missed due to our late arrival from Manchester. Arrived at our hotel at three in the morning. Breakfast was plentiful in the form of a buffet and the same was true of the evening meal. Again there was plenty of choice and the starters and the sweets were very tempting ( a little too tempting for the waistline!) The surrounding area was unreal with so many empty buildings in the no-go area. Bar and pool area and the sandy beach were much appreciated by us all and the price of drinks was as expected in this classy hotel. We thought the staff were friendly and efficient and made our stay an enjoyable one. Staying here was a real treat.

Room Tip: We stayed in a standard room on the third floor facing the beach to the side of the hotel. This suit...

I did not stay at the hotels due to discrepancies with rate booking details provided by the hotel. I emailed them to request a price for a specific room and dates to be provied in British Pounds. I received a reply that gave the prices for a standard room and supplements for the type of room I required. Therefore I emailed again and was given the price again but this time in Euros. I emailed again for the price to be sent in British Pounds. I received a reply but then noted that the price for the room had gone up from the price I was given on the first email and also included an extra charge for a stay that included weekend nights. I emailed again to query this and received a reply to say that management had made a decision to charge extra for weekend stays.
I therefore made a booking with a different hotel that was able to provide without any issues a rate for the type of room and dates I required.

Dear Guest,

Firstly, thank you for considering our hotel when booking you holiday in Northern Cyprus.

I have sent you a personal e-mail regarding the above issues, the reasons for the difference in the rates you received was due to the difference in the exchange rate between the dates of the two emails (10 days).

We apologise for any misunderstanding and as we have discussed via e-mail I look forward to meeting for a coffee when you visit us here at Arkin Palm Beach hotel.

You can't fault this hotel on its standards in terms of the physical environment inside the hotel itself. Its location however is strange, pushing up against the crumbling edifices and rusting cranes of Varosha. Our room was over the Casino entrance and there was quite a bit of noise disturbance inthe late evening. Its obviously aspiring to be a top class hotel, staff were often efficient but sometimes not very friendly. Food was very good but prices were much higher than the other hotels we stayed in.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay at Arkin Palm Beach hotel.

In terms of our location, our hotel was originally built in the late 1940’s prior to Varosha having been built; the majority of our guest’s find this area intriguing and it also adds to the sereneness of our beach.

We are sorry to hear that you were affected by some noise in the evenings, we would always prefer that a guest inform us of any issues whilst at the hotel so that we can help you with your query and in this instance, depending on availability, move you to a room where you would have been more comfortable.

We feel our prices are reasonable in comparison to similar establishments in Europe / Turkey.

We continuously include our personnel in training programmes in order to maintain and improve on the high standards we set ourselves. We appreciate your feedback and positive comments.

My husband and I have just returned home from this wonderful hotel!
We have had the most peaceful and relaxing week.
The hotel is set on a beautiful sandy beach,and is of a excellent standard.
Staff are very polite and helpful.They genuinely want you to be happy and comfortable in your stay.
The food is cooked to perfection and always well presented and the deserts are to die for!
It is located right next to the forbidden zone,but we did not let it spoil anything.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are a must!
