“A quiet oasis in Kyrenia, with superb staff”
Reviewed 30 November 2010

Went for a long weekend with my husband and somewhat energetic 3 year old grandson.

The staff were absolutely brilliant with our grandson and he soon felt very at home helping the waiters!

We were in the original building, and the room had a slight hint of fading elegance (bath chipped, tiles chipped etc). Very clean though, and we received the no-smoking room we had requested.

Beautiful large garden, with 2 swimming pools and an aviary near the car park, I never expected it to be so green and peaceful.

Two negatives, the food was pretty dire- the lamb kebab was so tough we couldn't chew it (and neither could most of the other diners). Breakfast was unimaginative, especially the Monday morning offering.

Surprised that we weren't given an itemised bill, just a hand-written receipt for our payment. The lady dealing with our check-out seemed to be aware that we weren't getting a proper bill, but avoided eye-contact, and as we had a meeting to go to, I didn't pursue the matter and just hoped that the bill was correct (it "seemed" about right!).

We have been going to Kyrenia and staying at the Pia Bella for 14 years. It's a fantastic hotel and we have seen it grow from a tiny 2-star hotel. The service has constantly maintained its high standard and the staff are friendly and efficient. Zehra is an exceptional ambassador for the Pia Bella and is an asset to the whole team. We are already looking forward to our next visit. If you're planning a visit to Kyrenia, ignore the other hotels as the Pia Bella is the best!

This hotel is rated as four stars and they are very well earned. Our superior room was first class and the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was excellent with a good range of evening meals as well as a large choice at breakfast with specials orders catered for. The hotel is sited about one mile from Kyrenia town and harbour and we rented a car through the hotel which was reasonable. The grounds of the hotel contain two lovely swimming pools as well as garden areas. We arranged this holiday with Cyprus Paradise who were very good, the Rep at the hotel was partticularly helpful. The only gripe we had was with the airline who delayed our stay at Istanbul by over 2 hours whilst they negotiated with a group claiming to be short on cargo accompanying them and refused to leave the plane. The police were called eventually and we proceeded on to Ercan. We were all annoyed that a plane could be held up so long particularly as our flight to Istanbul was already delayed 7 hours because of fog at Istanbul. The feeling was that police involvement should have been much earlier.

My wife and i have just completed our second stay at the Pia Bella. We stayed for 14 days in the Summer of 2009 and then a week in October this year. On both occasions our rooms have been excellent, spotlessly clean and with good views from a nice balcony. The views over the gardens and the pool with the Kyrenia Mountains in the background is just so beautiful and tranquil.
We ate at the hotel on most evenings. In fact in October of this year we ate in the hotel restaurant all 7 nights. The food is excellent. There is a good choice at a reasonable price and the service is superb. All of the restaurant staff are so very helpful and versatile, especially Ali with his singing!
If there is anything that you want, any advice or help then the Reception staff are always willing to oblige. Everyone is so friendly and simply want you to have a good holiday.
We love the hotel and will go back again next year and hopefully for many years to come. The atmosphere is relaxing and caring and everything is spotlessly clean. If you want some entertainment then this is also provided around the outside bar area on most evenings, but the noise does stop at a sensible time.
An absolute gem in a country which we have grown to like very much.

We chose Northern Cyprus for the weather. As avid Greek Island fans the weather is not quite so dependable at the end of October. We were not disappointed with sunshine and temperatures in the high 80's in the day and low 70's at night. The Pia Bella is an excellently run hotel in a convenient position for exploring the area. The room was spotlessly clean and the housekeeping first class. The breakfast was varied and good quality. There is the usual sunbed game of towels at some ungodly hour. You either take part or you don't. Everyone, except ourselves or so it seemed, were mysteriously upgraded to half-board. Talking to other guests the options for the evening meal were limited compered to the a la carte and we wouldn't have chosen to eat in looking at the options. We ate out every night in Kyrenia the prices being much cheaper than in the Euro zone. Hire a car locally from the hotel for £20 per day - much cheaper than through travel agents. Looking around prices can go as low as £12 per day. We chose a top floor room facing the mountains - not the block overlooking the car park. Email the hotel direct they are very accommodating. Be prepared to be shocked by the litter, not in the hotel, which is absolutely everywhere and mile after mile of unfinished building work and 'builders rubble'. I don't understand why an area relying so much on tourism is in such a mess and because of this we will not be returning. It's a shame because the hotel doesn't deserve it's surroundings.

Having used hotel Pia Bella three times, I will endorse the fact that it is the friendliest hotel I have ever used. Being rather well travelled with a lifetime of living in hotels, (former B.A. crew) the comforting knowledge that nothing is too much trouble far outways the star rating. I have used 5* hotels that are cold and impersonal with staff that are efficient but lack the warmth that Pia Bella staff have honed to a generous degree. From year to year one is greeted with the use of first names remembered that could be construed as invasive. But not the Pia Bella staff, their greeting is of one returning home and greeted by family. My wife and I shall continue to return to enjoy remarkable hospitality, food that is more than satisfactory and the delights of a beautiful Island

The rooms with balconies overlooking the pools were of a high standard.The hotel grounds and pools enabled guests to find their own space with plenty of recliners,fresh towels and service as required.
Zehra proved to be an invaluable asset to the hotel; a delightful lady who handled all the guests with tremendous kindness and tact as well as having a great sense of humour and enduring patience!
