We stayed at the Arkin Palm Beach Hotel for 2 weeks in May 2015. The hotel was fantastic with wonderful views and clean, modern spacious rooms. The beach was just perfect with soft sand. The food was delicious. Breakfast was fantastic with lots of choice. The swimming pool was amazing. The staff were extremely helpful and welcoming. We used Spa and Wellness Centre 3 times during our stay and the massage treatment was just perfect.
We rented a car for 7 days and explored historical sites such as Salamis Ruins, old town of Famagusta, as well as Karpas peninsula – a truly beautiful place with beautiful beaches.

Me and my partner were looking for a beach holiday in a beautiful location and recommend this hotel by some friends who stayed here before. The beach was clean. Sand was very soft & golden. We couldn't fault this hotel at all. Our thanks for the excellent customer service, every member of staff were dedicated to providing amazing service. The pool and grounds were kept very clean. The hotel was not far from Famagusta centre. We were given a Junior Suite Room which was very spacious and comfortable with expansive Mediterranean Sea views. Our room was cleaned every day and the towels and bed linen also changed daily.
The best thing about this hotel was the food; it always kept hot. Breakfast was great, plenty of choice. Dinner was even better with locally-grown and harvested specialities - there was a separate salad selection which was fantastic!
We will definitely return again! And recommend it to everyone.
