Reviewed 6 October 2010

slight concerns pre-trip after reading reviews on this site but apart from some trivial issues we had a good stay .
room was dated but clean and staff very freindly .
if you want 5 star at 2 star prices you will be disappointed . this hotel is very good vfm.

Terrible terrible hotel. Rooms not cleaned, shower door filthy, staff unfriendly, balcony furniture only fit for the skip, balcony dangerous with crumbling rubble falling from balcony above. The sheets on our bed didn't even fit.Outside it got worse. The private beach was dirty and full of broken beer bottles and broken beds. In the restaurant plates were left on the table from the night before and breakfast dishes weren't cleared away so that the cats ate what was left on the table!! Cats slept on the restaurant cushions and I'm convinced that due to that I got bitten by cat fleas. As you can imagine we left after a few days. This hotel needs to be completely rebuilt.

Arrived late Saturday evening. No rep to greet us. Signed in and was showed our room. Only one light was working. The door of the room had been forced open at some time and had been patched up with a piece of hardboard. The door handle fell off when trying to open the door. The beds where on the floor with no legs. There where no coat hangers in the one wardrobe. I asked the Manager about coat hangers and the lights. He brought up 5 hangers and replaced all the bulbs. One bulb was broken in the holder so he pulled the whole fitting from the ceiling and then held the light fitting back in the ceiling with toilet paper. The bathroom floor and the shower was covered in various spots with black mould and the taps where silver copper coloured through lack of cleaning and dripping water. The plug socket in the bathroom was badly fitted and gaps where around and in between the tiles. The mini bar had no drinks only a 1/2 eaten apple. We decided to go for a drink in the hotel bar which was across the main road on the swimming pool. We noticed that an area that used to be a dinning area had been left to rot and was covered in rubble and broken chairs and tables.
A karaoke session was in full swing and we had a couple of drinks and decided to see what the place looked like in the morning. On returning to our room I phoned the rep and she said that she would speak to the Manager in he morning. In the daylight, the carpet looked and felt dirty and had cigarette burns. The curtains over the patio windows only covered 3/4 of the window. The balcony was dirty and stained and was covered in water caused by a broken pipe that was leaking water from above. The balcony railngs where broken and fastened together with wire. The patio window was covered in brown stains caused by an overgrown tree/bush that was on the balcony. There was no table, just two fithy plastic chairs. The lights had fused during the night and when the Manager was told he said that we had to be careful where my wife plugged in the hairdryer.
We went to the so called hotel resturant a short way passed the pool bar. Breakfast was a cup of coffee or tea. One plate with one egg, 3 pieces of wafer thin cheese, 2 pieces of cucumber and a slice of tomato. The bread was mini size and hard and stale. We spoke to the rep by phone and she said the Manager was going to speak with us. We went on the beach that had loads of broken sun shades and beds. The beach was dirty and covered in last nights discarded beer bottles and rubbish.
The owner came to see us on the Monday morning and when showed the state of the rooms he said it was typical Turkish and he would move us into another room. When showed the room it was slightly better but we declined his offer after taking into consideration the hotel food and general decay of the building.
3 other points, the hotel had an indoor pool that had stagnant water and smelt, the indoor fire escape in the corridor facing our room was blocked with bed frames and mattresses and other rubbish from the above floor and down to the ground floor. The Hotel bar near reception did not contain any drinks and was closed. We where moved that afternoon to another hotel nearer to Famagusta. We where later to find out the the hotel had been told to close and had no insurance to accommodate guests. There are other events I could recall but I think you will get the picture from the above comments. The village of Bogaz was run down and only had 2 resturants that where opened and they where expensive, not the way the brochure descibed the location and the Hotel. This is one hotel to MISS !!!!

Third time in Northern Cyprus, Love the place. Last year went for 3 weeks, 1 week in Bogaz Hotel & 2 weeks in Riviera Bungalows Kyrenia (Excellent Accomodation), Decided to pay Bogaz a visit this year for a couple of nights and found that the hotel as deteriated to say the least (last year wasn,t perfect) but the hotel now needs some serious TLC, Its a shame because its got fantastic potential.The staff are friendly and helpful but the hotel & beach area needs a major makeover.
It didnt spoil the holiday though and we went back to the little paradise called The Riviera Bungalows Kyrenia.

We booked our holiday with CYTA and as we were travelling on scheduled flights, realised that we were in relatively cheap accomodation. However, the Bogaz Hotel website promises a comfortable stay,which, in the end is what we had! We started off with a room at the back of the hotel overlooking rubbish. It had no kettle and no hairdryer (both items supplied according to website) and two walls were half painted. For £30 we upgraded to a sea-view room which was much better. The view was stunning. The kettle and hair-dryer were quickly supplied. The pools were not ready to be used but we had a car and there are some fantastic beaches around the peninsula so the pools did not matter. However, It should really be made clear at the time of booking that not all facilities will be available eary in the season.
Potentially the hotel is on a superb site. Yes, you do have to cross the main Famagusta road to get to the restaurant, BUT how often can you have breakfast virtually on the beach watching the fishermen bringing in their catch? The position of the tables just above the beach is second to none! There is a lot of rubbish about but that is how it is in places like Greece and Turkey. If you want neat perfect gardens etc. then you are in the wrong place unless you are prepared to pay a great deal more for it. The staff at the hotel and in the restaurant are friendly and helpful. If you want something ask and they will endeavour to provide it. Yes, there is certainly room for improvement and with money and effort it could be a more attractive hotel but we all (3 couples - 60 ish in years but never really grown up!) all had a lovely holiday! If you stayed in youth hostels as a teenager and camped with you r own children , then the Bogaz Hotel is probably O.K. for you!!

We got here after a long flight, were tired and just wanted to relax by the pool. We booked the hotel after viewıng the details on the web. Websıte looked very impressive and we couldn't wait to use the facilities which were meant to be luxurious.

Big mistake - no pool. no bar, beach trashed and no other guests! Have to say ıt reminded us of 'The Shining'. Had to sleep over for one night then we ran for it. Never been any where quite so diabolical.

İ suppose ıf you lıke your own space wıth no one aroundş ıncludıng staff, then here's the place for you!

Just hope you don't mind no hot water, smashed İn bathroom door, cobwebs in the wardrobe and a minibar wıth half a packet of mouldy mayonaisse.

How would we describe it in three words? unfinished amateur joke!
