This is the fourth time we have visited this hotel and it never fails to excel in its standards. The rooms are large and serviced every day with change of bed linen and towels. If you want to go somewhere to relax and unwind/chill out then this hotel is the place to go. The hotel is situated just on the outskirts of the main Kyrenia town, which is a very short drive or taxi ride into the centre. The owner, Huseyin and his staff go the extra mile, taking pride in the service they provide. Nothing is too much trouble. They open up an account for you on arrival and you can add everything to the bill, they even arrange taxis which can also be added to your account. The food is great with every meal freshly prepared and cooked by Eugeniu. I particularly liked the beef burgers, which are awesome. The hotel operates a points loyalty scheme, where points are accumulated every time you visit and can be used towards a future stay at the hotel. Look at the previous tripadvisor reviews it is a testament to the great service this hotel provides with many guests, including ourselves visiting year after year.

Hotel's Favourite
Very enjoyable relaxing day spent with friends. We arrived in the morning and had coffee before using the very clean pool . Followed by a very tasty and enjoyable lunch with a few drinks, returning to the pool area for a relaxing afternoon. A most enjoyable day the hotel and grounds are kept very clean and the staff are very friendly and can’t do enough for you. Looking forward to our next visit to The High Life Hotel. Thank you for a fantastic day , see you all soon

We stayed at High Life for 14 nights,so glad we made it,we missed it so much last year. This was our 6th or 7th visit to HighLife and the welcome you receive here is always warm,like a stay with extended family. Huseyin,Eugene and Bich are doing a grand job looking after their guests and as always,Huseyin is an absolute star if you need help with anything at all. Return Covid tests are easy,as Huseyin has organised a company to come to the hotel,so no faffing about trying to sort it yourself,which is a huge bonus. The food here is always great and all served on the amazing terrace looking out to sea. This hotel is perfect if you want a quiet,relaxing holiday,the location is ideal,away from the main road but not too far from shops etc,car hire can be arranged by the hotel if required. We stayed in room 37 this year,which is now our new favourite and have already booked for a return visit next year. We came via Larnaca as usual,Cyprus flight pass,Adapass,PCR tests before arriving were all worth the effort to spend time at this wonderful hotel. It's always a great stay here and High Life is the only hotel we would want to spend time at in North Cyprus and we are so looking forward to our visit next year,missing it already. A massive Thank You to everyone at High Life for another wonderful stay. PS, Eugene still makes a mean Bloody Mary!!!

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 5 days. Huseyin and the team couldn’t do enough for us. The hotel is very organised. The dinning terrace has amazing views over the sea. The hotel is in a very quiet and peaceful location. Taxis are easily available to take you into town. I can highly recommend this hotel

Another fantastic holiday thanks Huseyin and his staff. Small hotel for adults only lovely pool pleany of sun beds sea terrace and a sea deck. Good size rooms all with a decent size balcony. Comfortable beds rooms cleaned daily fridge, TV, hairdryer, safe and air conditioning all included in your room. The food and views from the sea terrace are fantastic. The town is a £3.50 taxi ride away where you will find many bars and restaurants (avoid eating at the old harbour as the food isn't great from my experience) but a good view. A mobile phone that can be taken with you so you can call the hotel for a taxi or if you have a problem great idea. 2nd time here and looking forward to our 3rd visit.
