The Mini villa was secluded, felt very private and was of an excellent standard. The pools were all extremely well maintained and the variety of the wave pool, slides, jazuzzi and relaxing 'more grown up' pool ensured we were always entertained.
Travelling in September, the weather was scorching and there were hardly any kids - so the perfect combination.
There are two restaurants near the hotel, Mirabelle is perfect if you are back late from sightseeing, and the Kebab House is great for lunch.

There are 3 swimming pools which were cleaned every morning - very nice! Plenty of sun loungers!
Area surrounding hotel not so nice but should be nice when building work is finished. Alesta Kebab house 5 mins walk away.
Food is good and very cheap!
Would definitely visit this hotel again! Town centre only 5mins away by courtesy bus. Also plenty of trips to go on through Cyprus paradise would recommend particularly if you don't hire a car!

Dinner unimaginative and got cold quickly for late arrivals. Best not to book half board.
First room (Fantasia sea view) badly needed decorating with a TV aerial which ran across the room. Hot tap barely worked - extractor fan sounded like concorde - bath panel cracked and falling off. Bedside light unable to be reached as cable too short. TV only showed a completely red picture. Curtains did not cover windows when drawn as material not wide enough.
Transferred to a better room on protest. External hotel facilities excellent.
Hotel 1 1/2 miles outside Kyrenia and surrounded by unfinished buildings with no signs of work being done on them. Residents described the locality as like "Beirut".

The Pink court apmnts are bigger, but they have better S/c facilities in the mini villas, ie a mini grill and oven. Sadly the Pink Court only have 2 rings.
They bathrooms are bigger in the Pink Court apmnts, to be honest I was dissapointed with the bathroom I had in a mini villa.
The gardens around Oscars, although lovely do tend to get a bit over run, but there are alway people cutting back etc.
The area around Oscars leaves a lot to be desired, but once you are in the hotel grounds you can leave all that behind you.
Oscars has 3 pools, all of which have a different atmosphere, the water slides are fantastic, they might only be on at certain times, but there are really good fun. There is also a wave pool, again on at certain times, but this is also fun.
I would recommenend Oscars, as there is something for everyone.

Staff very friendly and happy to help with any problems.
Drinks a bit pricey, and dont buy Ice lollies from the hotel bar they are a rip off, go to the small shop within the hotel for them where they cost a 1/3 of the price.
Breakfast buffet style, plenty of choice.
The biggest bonus to us was not having to get up at the crack of dawn and do the "towel trail" as sunbeds were always available at one of the 3 pools all day long.
The evenings in the bar were a little quiet as everyone goes out, but liven up around 11ish when people start to return after a night out.
Short taxi dide into Kyrenia centre only YTL5.
All in all, this holiday made a very pleasant change to some of our past holidays with the big tour operators were we felt like we were at Butlins.Only problem is now, how do we find something as good in a different location.
We dont usually visit the same place twice as it is a big world out there and I want to see a lot of it, but we would definately visit both Oscars and Northern Cyprus again in the future.
