High Life Hotel
Ranked #1 of 30 Hotels in Kyrenia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 August 2011

Having read the various reviews we decided to approached the hotel with an open mind. Yes, there are many cats but they do not bother you in any way and they are exceptionally clean. Also, food can take a little time to arrive but we were in no rush and when it did arrive it was of a high standard and the servings were very generous! Rooms are spacious and are kept very clean by the staff along with the pool and dining area. For us, what made the hotel memerable was the friendly nature of all the staff who were always happy to assist with our requests.

If you are looking for a quiet, friendly and clean environment in which to stay this hotel is a good choice and we feel that it was good value for money.

Thank you to Nurcan and Ziynet for serving the breakfast and keeping our rooms tidy. Also, special thanks to Emre and Acelya for the excellent dinner service and wonderful food.

We look forward to seeing you again!

Room Tip: Ask for a small room as the multi level room get very hot!

Lovely situation looking over the sea. bathrooms need updating. Beha the owner is a great fun person and willing to help at all times. Barbeque very good. Breakfast each morning looking over the sea. Rooms quite large with balcony. Parking and great deals on hire car if booked on the web directly with the hotel. Lovely swimming pool. Staff polite and very helpful. Will definitely go again.

Room Tip: Ask for block B or downstairs on block A

The wording in the Anatolian Sky brochure of 'No children under 12' clinched it for me. Actually most guests were around our age group (50's), a friendly crowd, and 2 couples who come back each year new all the good restaurants to visit. The Pool is very swimming friendly, the staff are polite and helpful, and the situation outside Kyrenia makes it quiet. I wish we had stayed longer, and I would certainly recommend.

Room Tip: We stayed in Block B, facing the swimming pool. the rooms had very high ceilings to help with the he...

Just got back from a very relaxing week at the High Life. Had some slight worries after reading Trip Adviser before going but these were unfounded in our experience.
The accomodation was kept very clean with room service, towels etc. changed daily and the 2 waitresses / cleaners were always smiling and happy to help despite long hours and numerous jobs, especially Neena (? ) at breakfast who was brilliant.
Hotel is very quiet with mainly guests over 35 and as it said no children under 12 (in fact no children at all) which made for a quiet, relaxing break with no stress or disturbance. Didn't eat in the hotel (other than included breakfast which was excellent) and other eatong places meant a walk along the road to find them or a taxi ride to town (2 klms or 10 TL taxi each way). Local good restaurants were Old Courtyard (Indian & European) and Tanners Terrace (Cypriot & European) both excellent value and very friendly.
For a special meal book the Kybele at the Bellapais Abbey. Spectacular setting and FREE taxi each way from hotel (book by phone stating hotel). Very good food if a little pricier than the others.

Room Tip: hotel also does car hire

just returned from the High life hotel in Karukam, Kyrena northern cyprus. Hotel very clean and tidy, bits need a bit updating but overall a very very nice place to stay. The grounds are kept extremely clean and tidy and the pool and surrounding area is also kept very clean a little jewl in the crown, and the view from where you eat breakfast is great, you look straight out to the sea. The staff are very freindly and curtious nothing is too much trouble inclunding Beha the owner, and you are made to feel very welcome. The breakfast was good, evening meals was also good although a little dearer than other surrounding places we ate. ( a little note for Beha, keep the food and drink slightly cheaper and more people would stay their in the evenings). Although the hotel was good
I must say that my wife and myself were extremly dissapointed with the beaches, there were very few that you could say were golden sandy beaches, and the ones that were sandy were very dirty there is litter strewn everwhere, even on the turtle beach which we found quite hard to believe, very poor indeed and need to be cleaned up. we would not rush back to northern cyprus, but if we did we would go back back to Beha at the High Life.
