About Manolya Hotel
Family-Run, Good Value Hotel For Sun And Sea
The Manolya Hotel is a little gem; a family-run hotel nestling between sea and mountains, with a seafront swimming pool, easy access to the sea below and a well-regarded PADI scuba dive school based at the hotel. For those who prefer just to sun themselves and chill out, the Manolya Hotel's sun terraces by the sea and quiet location near Lapta will help you relax the moment you arrive.
Comfortable Rooms with Mountain or Sea Views
The Manolya Hotel rooms have lovely views across the pool area to the sea beyond, or inland to the Five Finger Mountains. Your room will be clean, comfortably furnished, with air conditioning for those hot summer days and satellite tv and well stocked mini bar for relaxing evenings 'in'. There's also wifi access (chargeable), so you can post your holiday photos of your first scuba lesson or your walk in the mountains!
Family rooms are exceptionally good value, since each has a separate sitting area and a mini kitchenette, ideal for families with young children.
Two Hotel Restaurants, and Lots More Nearby
Start your day with a tasty buffet breakfast served on the terrace or in the restaurant overlooking the sea. Borrow a book from the hotel's book exchange before taking your place beside the pool for some serious R&R. The pool bar is open all day all summer long so you're never far from a cool drink or a lunchtime snack. In the evenings, book a table for dining al fresco on the terrace, or join in one of the popular BBQ or Cypriot nights.
If you fancy a night out, the local restaurants of Lapta are just a short walk away. This part of North Cyprus has been famous for its fish since the Romans built fish ponds into the rocks here, so make sure you try some on your night out. For an evening without the kids, babysitting services are available at the hotel.
Seaside Swimming Without the Salt!
The Manolya Hotel swimming pool is in a lovely setting right by the Mediterranean Sea, so you can swim and enjoy sea breezes without even getting salty! There's no beach here, but you can a dip in the sea from the terraces or via the hotel's jetty. There’s also rocks, terraces and grassed areas around the little cove.
Scuba Diving On Your Doorstep
If you've never tried scuba diving before, North Cyprus is the place to learn! The hotel's own dive school will teach you the basics in the swimming pool, so you learn in a safe environment, Then, take to the seas and explore the underwater world just beyond your hotel, under the expert tuition of PADI instructors. More experienced divers can dive in the morning, enjoy lunch at the hotel, and dive again in the afternoon.
You can hire snorkelling equipment, fishing equipment or hire a car to make the most of the Manolya Hotel's wonderful location on the north coast of Northern Cyprus.
Lovely Location Just 45 Minutes To Ercan Airport
Thanks to the new Kyrenia bypass, you can be whisked from your North Cyprus flight arrival to your accommodation in as little as 45 minutes by private taxi transfer. It's a lovely ride too, through the mountains and down to the coastand along to the laid back lifestyle of Lapta. The team at GNC really rate this part of North Cyprus, with plenty to see, eat, do and enjoy, but without the crowds, noise (and expense) of Kyrenia hotels and restaurants. Enjoy it while it lasts!

"Lovely quiet break at the Manolya"
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Manolya Hotel for a week recently. We had a lovely out of season break, which we found via the gonorthcyprus website. We had a nice room that was spacious and clean with lots of cosy pillows. The staff were polite and friendly. Very attractive pool area and beautiful sea views, I didn't brave the water at this time of year though. I also had a wonderful massage at the hotel and...
we really enjoyed the pancakes at breakfast, delicious! We took the bus into Girne cheaply and visited Nicosia. The village of Lapta was within walking distance and very nice. A lovely relaxed getaway.

"Restful, relaxing and reasonably priced"
My wife and I have just returned from a break at the Manolya, which we booked through GoNorthCyprus.com. We really enjoyed our stay in a good sized clean, bright room, which had a wonderful view from the balcony and a comfortable bed. The rest of the hotel was clean and well kept with a pleasant smell. Breakfast was varied and tasty but could have been a bit hotter. Staff in the restaurant were very efficient...
and friendly. The food was a little limited at tea time but well-cooked nevertheless. We took the bus into Girne very cheaply and also visited the village of Lapta and went into Nicosia, so lots of sightseeing! Nice to return to our pleasant and comfortable room each evening.

"Amazing first visit to north Cyprus"
We've just returned from a week at the Manolya Hotel and can safely say that we had an amazing time. Right from booking through gonorthcyprus to leaving the hotel we had a really fabulous time. We were made to feel so welcome by the staff, given a great room by the pool which was impeccably clean and cool, and enjoyed a plentiful and varied breakfast each morning. Handy supermarket just over the road that also...
changes money and some very good local restaurants like Fly Inn and Alvadar nearby. Cheap to get into Kyrenia via the bus outside the hotel and certainly worth visiting to see the lovely harbour. Staff were very helpful in giving us directions and recommendations of the best local beaches and other attractions. Just a faultless stay overall and a wonderful first visit to the region.
