“Very enjoyable stay”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

We arrived quite late at night and was presented with a free upgrade to a sea view room which was a very large family room and had a fabulous view and an extremely large veranda. The hotel appears to have been refurbished but in the typically Turkish way not finished as you would expect. That said we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel was very clean, breakfast buffet was varied and if you wanted you could have eggs cooked to order, the three swimming pools were great and we never had a problem getting a sun bed. Beach areas man made but there if you prefer the sea. Also a concrete arm with sun beds was available if you don't like sand! The waiting staff were always polite and helpful in finding tables or clean cutlery etc as some of the tables were outside, under cover they were always busy. It is about a 40 minute stroll into Kyrenia centre or you can take the Noddy train that runs a couple of times a day from the hotel or there are always taxis available. We hired a car from our rep, a bargain at £18 per day, we were supplied a Ford Fiesta that suited us well and allowed us to explore all of Northern Cyprus, which us really worth doing. Drinks at the pool were very expensive, we didn't eat in the hotel but would suspect that poolside food is also expensive. There are plenty of local bars or supermarkets if you fancy a stroll and save money. The only complaint we had were the reception staff, they could have been more helpful. They suggested we use the poolside showers as we could not keep our room and we had a late departure. They were advised that that was unacceptable when we would have spent our last day enjoying the sun and then have a long journey home. Subsequently they advised that the spa may allow us to use the showers there. Upon checking with the spa staff who were really happy to accommodate us we paid equivalent of £5 each and they supplied us with all we needed. If only the reception had dealt with our enquiry in a better manner, they are no doubt asked the same thing on a regular basis!! Overall wouldn't hesitate in returning to Oscars if we visit Northern Cyprus again and recommending to friends and family. Northern Cyprus is still an unspoilt little gem that us both very reasonable to get there and whilst you are there. However for some people it may be too quiet as there are very few shops that close early in the evening and apart from bars and restaurants not much to do at night.

We had a lovely stay at oscars. It's out of the town centre but there's a free train (kid style) which takes you from the hotel and back. Nice pool and slides. We had a great time and would recommend. It's good for families. Only downside was lack of night time entertainment and a very pushy rude man trying to get you to book the spa.

Me and my girlfriend spend a very nice week in the Oscar Resort Hotel! We would like to say thank you for all the staff for the perfect service and friendly attitude. My girlfriend had her birthday during the holiday so I have organized a birthday party with the staff. She was surprised and was very happy. I would like to thank for Ebenenezer Odoi waiter for the beautiful table and wine, and for Ismet restaurant chief for the very professional organization. We will happily recommend the hotel to our friends! Hopefully we will come back again!

Firstly let me say I wasn't there for a holiday, so I may be swayed by how much I could do.
The positives:
The room- I asked to be upgraded and for 5€ night I got a large, nicely furnished room with a balcony, sea view and 2 queen sized beds.
The pools- Three to choose from with many sun beds ( peak time a premium)
The train- 3 times a day to the harbour ( don't be late for a seat)
The wait staff
The cleaners
24hr room service

Negatives-
- The whole place needs modernising, refurbishment, very dated and smelt musty.
- The food- very much geared towards Turks and Germans. Not much choice for English etc. I saw flies everywhere, even twice in the Molasses. Drinks at night were taken away, even water, so you had to pay. The desserts could be better ( Like Pia Bellas). There needs to be music or entertainers, no atmosphere. Waiters scoffed at me when I asked for decaf coffee and gluten free bread.
Hidden Extras- be careful to factor in extra for Internet, drinks, towel hire, safe hire.
Safety- I was followed back to my room at night by an African man waiting in the foyer for solo women. Felt very unsafe.
Spa- very expensive, massage was short.
Desk Staff- disorganised and rude

Overall Ok for families who want a budget holiday with no frills.

Stayed at the Oscar Resort Hotel for almost a week, and loved it! I found the Cypriot hospitality to be warm and friendly; really outstanding. While the hotel is showing some signs of aging, overall it was very clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet had a huge selection of Mediterranean dishes--cheeses, olives, greens and yogurt--as well as Western fare, and all the food was superb! The servers were very professional and thoughtful, and I loved afternoon tea at the lobby. While it was removed from the city centre, it was nice to have the quiet and getting to the main strip was only a short trip. I would definitely stay here again.

Found a great deal to stay in this hotel. Loved it. The pool, slides and entertainment. Loved North Cyprus in general. Absolutely beautiful place.

Only down points is the beach isn't great in Kyrenia but we went famagusta instead. Which I found out was were all the best beaches are. They were right!! I was amazed and loved it. Plus the hotel lobby area is quite dark and there's no air con. Maybe it was just me?

Overall, I'd stay again. Great staff!! Great culture and beautiful country.

Just returned from an absolutely lovely stay at the Oscar Resort. Fabulous hotel directly on the sea with a lovely palm garden and 3 swimmingpools. Why havent I discovered this hotel before?
Spacious and very nice decorated rooms. I had a seaview room in one of the `Pink` buidlings next to the main building. Very spacious room with excellent beds, nice bathroom and very nice balcony overlooking the lush gardens and the sea. Hotel has 3 swimmingpools, one being the aquapark with water slides. The mainpool with more than enough sunbeds and umbrellas also has a good restaurant for a nice lunch al fresco. Staff are all very well trained, work hard, always having a smile on their face and always being very helpfull. Buffets at the resaturants are very lavish, there is always something of your liking. Try to get a table where Faizan waits on you. He´s ever so polite and helpful, after a few days he knows what you like to drinks. Their is a private beach at the hotel and a nice pier with sunbeds and umbrellas.
I can recommend this hotel to everyone who is looking for a nice and relaxing hotel only a few minutes by taxi from the centre of Kyrenia.
Will surely return.

Room Tip: Seaview rooms at the PINK buildings.
