The last time we stayed was in the winter months. The hotel was not that busy, but there were still tourists here.
The price was good as we also had a free half board promotion.
Overall this is a great base to stay for your kyrenia holiday.
The staff is as friendly as ever, and we now know most of them. Service is good, with a personal touch, and of good standards.
There is a nice long bar area outside, and a outdoor courtyard area between the two pools. This is a good spot to relax, and watch the world go by.
The two pools give plenty of room for sunbathing, and you donâ€™t really feel like you are in the town.
Opt for a superior or deluxe room. The latter being the better. The rooms have been newly created, with good furnishings. In the winter however the rooms could get a bit nippy, but when we put the air-conditioning unit on it was fine. Al be it the air was a bit dry, as it's an electric heater.
Food at the hotel is good, a large buffet or al al carte options. All served in the main restaurant, with entertainment on some nights.
The hotel is geared towards couples and adults, so you wont really find too many kids running around. Being close to the town centre means its ideal spot for getting around town, with plenty of parking also in the area.
Tip: ask for a brandy sour cocktail.. nice!

The food however mediocre, unvaried & most of the time lukewarm, served on cold plates so that by the time you got it to the table, cold.We normally only book B/B but this time took the half board option.
Having said that Christmas Eve gala meal was better & the entertainment was good. Locals, ex-pats & holiday makers were mixed together,it was a lovely atmosphere.
On Christmas morning all the guests were greeted by Father Christmas & given a small gift.
New Year however was another matter all together. The hotel residents were herded into the rear of the dining room, the main part was decorated with satin bows & drapes, damask table linen,sparking cutlery & glasses,we didn't even get a full set of cutlery & paper serviettes.
We were asked to wait until the local paying visitors (they had been charged

The staff are a credit to this well located, pleasant and clean hotel. It now has 2 outdoor and a new indoor pool almost completed. The food is not only good, but excelent. Served on a large patio by the chefs.
I really cant say anything else, but try it, you will be delighted.

The staff at the Pia Bella were first class,very friendly and so helpful.
We had a lovely room (Superior) Jacuzzi and double balcony!!
There are two pools one large and one small, both spotless. I have never been so relaxed on holiday before and apart from a bad experience in Famagusta We loved every moment.
Kyrinia is very nice too, don't waste your money at all the restaurants in the harbour! The best meals can be found at the small side streets and near to hotel also(the Coffee stop is a must, great chef Joe) The Grapevine is good also, but the Brassiere is over rated and over rated (Italian speciality ha ha Joke!!)the set Italian has fantastic setting but awful food and worse service! Try Chinese behind hotel its great food and setting very good value. The best of all is the Kybelle restaurant at Bellepais monastery, awesome views in daytime and so beautiful at night. The staff fantastic best of all is Gengiss the waiter("small guy ,but 1st class waiter") if you only take one trip make it to this restaurant,you will not regret it I promise you?
The only down side is the massive amount of single men that sit, roam or seem to be everywhere in the town at night time (from eastern Turkey working as Builders on massive property boom) 40 men to 1 women, so great for the women heh? ha ha!!!! No crime in Kyrinia at all, hard to believe but true...
Get to Northern Cyprus before it gets spoilt QUICKLY.........

We were met in the early hours of the morning by Sied who we knew from our last visit, which was lovely. It was also nice to see Ali and Phylis again and not forgetting the est of the staff. They all made us feel very welcome. They have done some refurbishments to the hotel which is very nice.
Our room was very nice and clean and tidy. The maid who cleaned our rom on a daily basis was very good and kept it so nice for us. The pools and gardens are a lovely place to spend your time for relaxing and reading a good book and soaking up the sun. The pool in the garden area was likme getting into a bath, whih pleased my hubby as he is abit of a whimp when it comes to pool water, he does the toe dipping first,ahhhhhhh. The pool bar is a great place to meet other guests for a pre dinner drink and a chat and then to meet up again after your meal.
We met some really nice people while on holiday. The food was very good and varied. The new restaurant is very nice. Only one downside with the restaurant is there is not enough air conditioning in their. The restaurant staff are very attentive and look after your every need.
The walk down to Kyrenia takes about 20min and although there is alot of traffic and not much to look at you get used to it very quickly. The harbour is very nice,and there are lots of designer shops.We would recommend a vist upto Bellapais and to visit the Abbey, it is very pretty and peaceful up there.We loved our two weeks here and would return again another time. One eatery which we would say to visit for lunch which just up the road from the hotel is MOLLY'S.
You will have a great meal there and Molly is a lovely person and her staff. Well we hope this has been of some help and if you do decide to go we kn ow you will have a lovely time. ENJOY.
