Just returned from 2 weeks staying at Arkin Palm Beach hotel. All the reviews are right- it's a lovely setting, beautiful beach and pool. Staff very attentive and the food was great -both at breakfast and in the evening. There was always so much choice we never got bored and enjoyed all our meals.Our seaview room had a very large balcony with a large double sunbed as well as the usual table and chairs.There is a limited choice of other local restaurants etc, but we had a car for 6 days and were able to explore North Cyprus so this didn't affect us. One of the highlights of our holiday was seeing turtles swimming in the sea just off the beach - both while we were swimming in the afternoon and while enjoying a drink on the terrace in the evening before dinner. They seemed oblivious to the humans also enjoying the warm waters! A word of caution for those who have late flights as we did. We were too late for dinner on our first day, but as the check out time is 12 o-clock we had to pay for dinner on out last evening as we waited for our 8.30pm pick up. It's £50 to extend the room until 4 pm - which was not long enough so we didn't bother, and the showers etc in the spa are great. Our only slight adverse comment was that although there is sign in the dining room stating there is a dress code in the evening this is not enforced. Either remove the sign or enforce it - my husband went and bought an extra shirt and pair of trousers to comply and needn't have bothered!
