"This is a wonderful, caring and friendly hotel.
we went bed and breakfast this time. Plenty of breakfast for everyone from cooked to cereal. Lots of fruit. Lots of choices.
we had deluxe superior room. It was lovely, aired and very comfortable. Not forgetting clean.
love all the staff, all of them are wonderful. My favorite is Nayla.
The guest relations lady is always popping in to check and ask is everything fine.
the grounds are beautiful and color is everywhere. Trees and flowers.
will be back in the summer!
might even try the casino..."

VERY CLEAN, COMFORTABLE HOTEL, STAFF VERY FRIENDLY.
"This is the second time my husband and I have been to this hotel, it is still the same as it was 4 years ago, very clean and comfortable. The staff could not be better, they are so helpful and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is situated in beautiful grounds making it a lovely relaxing holiday. If we ever go back to North Cyprus we would definitely stay at this hotel again....we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we cannot comment on evening meals as we only had B.B....breakfast had plenty to choose from and the few lunches we had while we were there were very good value for money and enjoyable.....LOVELY HOTEL!!"

Gone down hill
"Stayed at the Pia Bella 4 years ago, it was excellent.We had no hesitation at going back what a mistake.We stayed half board but B&B would have been better as the breakfast was fine. The evening meal was a let down,if you went in at 8.15 there was usually only one soup left and that was always tomato, the food on the "hot " bank was cold we often asked the chef to reheat our meal in the microwave or asked for an omelet as there was not always a vegetarian option.We had booked a superior room but were put in a standard room overlooking the very busy road after complaining we were moved but we understand this is a common problem.
Would we go again NO"

very kind helpful and friendly staff and very clean hotel
"we are very good traveler, we travel all the time, I and my husband chose this hotel because our friends stayed and they had very good time there. we decided to go; hotel transfer was very good, they picked up just on time and reception welcomed us very good. the room was very nice, bright, also balcony was so big and refreshing. it was getting sun light in the morning which was very good for winter time.. I took sun on me. we do love sunny days in December it was 20 degree which amazed us :)breakfast and dinner was ambrosia. I couldn't count how many various food they are serving. waiters were so kind and friendly. we promised each other to come back again in summer

OK wÄ±th reservatÄ±ons
"ThÄ±s Ä±s a resort hotel caterÄ±ng for holÄ±day maker. Good clean rooms and frÄ±endly staff. Almost all guests were BrÄ±tÄ±sh holÄ±day makers. The hotel trÄ±es very hard and the food Ä±s good for a hotel. We dÄ±d not lÄ±ke musÄ±c playÄ±ng loudly Ä±n the outdoor restaurant whÄ±ch we overlooked. It carrÄ±ed on untÄ±l mÄ±dnÄ±ght for four nÄ±ghts out of the seven we were there Ä±ncludÄ±ng our last nÄ±ght when we had to leave at 5.ooam. The hotel Ä±s close to the town and on the bus/shared taxÄ± run makÄ±ng transport easy. "

Staff oggled my daughters
"The staff and management leered at my wife and daughters and made them feel uncomfortable. Some minor electrical equipment was stolen as well. The staff were horrible. We returned home feeling stressed and kissed the tarmac when the plane landed.Turkish Army everywhere. "

Great place to stay
"My husband and I stayed here in October 2008. We had a great holiday, the staff were extremely courteous at all times. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The food was of a very high standard. The pool area was very clean and well kept. There were always plenty of sun beds. It is quite close to the centre of Kyrenia which is only a ten minute walk away. We also used to eat at the Blue Bay restaurant which is close by and can highly recommend this restaurant. Food was of excellent quality and the owner who was English was very helpful and always very friendly. Her husband was turkish and he cooked the meals. I can highly recommend this as a holiday destination."

My husband and I stayed at the Pia Bella...
"My husband and I stayed at the Pia Bella for the first time this year and we are so glad we did - we had a wonderful time. What an excellent hotel. Our room had a view of the mountains and the gardens and it was just great, clean and nicely furnished. There are 2 pools within the large spacious garden area with sunbeds. We found it difficult to get a sunbed around the pools as people tended to put their towels on the sunbeds and then not appear for a while (sometimes not until lunchtime). However, we were quite happy to sit elsewhere. We found the staff to be extremely polite and helpful and Sarah (not sure how her name was spelt) who came around every day to ask if everyone had any problems was exceptional. We ate in the hotel and found the food very good. We met several people who had visited the hotel a few times previously and we can understand why. We had a great holiday and this was our first visit to North Cyprus. We look forward to staying at the Pia Bella again."
