The Sempati enjoys a quiet location outside of Kyrenia, so it's nice and quiet, and free from traffic noise. Ercan the owner and his staff work hard to make everyone feel welcome, and Ercan will usually be found walking around the pool each morning checking every guest is happy!

Our room and bathrooms were both clean, even if the decor needed a refresh, and had a nice balcony facing the sea. There was always plenty on offer to eat at breakfast, and we enjoyed the variety, although the instant coffee was a disappointment.

We hired a car for our week-long break (at the same time as our holiday, and this meant we could explore the lovely countryside and eat out at some local restaurants as well as in the hotel.

The Sempati Hotel is very good value, with its 3 star price tag, and 4 star facilities and staff.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Sempati

Booked for next year before leaving

from JacquelineG
We've just returned from the Sempati and have nothing but good things to say, we stayed B&B in one of the suites, Room 34, and loved it. The staff are all very friendly and can never do enough for you, the food is brilliant and the room fantastic. Our transfer from Larnaca went without a hitch (we even got a quick history lesson on the way). The car hire was a must, lovely Ford Fusion with the essential air con, all arranged for us, fab. Clean, friendly and very reasonably priced. We even booked to go back next year, same time, same room. North Cyprus is a must for anyone looking for peace and tranquility, we had many a beach all to ourselves, and the sea is warm and welcoming. Can't wait until next year, counting the days.

Found our oasis

from cunard
Everything advertised on the Hotel Sampati Web Site meet all expectations. Relaxing Pleasant Friendly, the Management & Staff are excellant . Having travelled world wide for over 50 years we found an OASIS.

We recommend this hotel, and will return

Great Place, Great People

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have now stayed at the Sempati 3 times and each time it just gets better. The Hotel is family run and all of the staff seem to be treated as part of the family as well. If you like to have a mix and choice of British and Cypriot quisine then you have the opportunity to do so here. If like my wife and I you like to eat just Cypriot food then a word with Erkan (one of the owners) puts the wheels in motion and you can enjoy some delightful dishes. The Hotel is situated in a very quiet area just a few yards from the coast and both sea and mountain views can be had from the rooms and balconies. There is a large swimming pool situated in the centre courtyard and the patio around this offers a large sunbathing area. You really need a car in the TRNC to enable you to enjoy the island and the Sempati offers good cars at good rates, airport pickup and drop off also available. If you fly into Larnaca Erkan can also arrange a pick up and drop off here as well (chargeable, but good value) Our last trip was in March this year and my wife and I took our elderly mothers with us along with our youngest daughter and it certainly is a place where all age groups are made to feel welcome. If you want a clean, quiet, good value and welcomimg place to stay then in our opinion you would have to go a long way to beat the Sempati. The only slightly negative comment we would make is that the bar drinks could be a little cheaper and breakfast a bit more varied. The breakfast is a minor niggle but because the local beer is so good the bar bill can be a little high if care is not taken. To sum up :- go to the Sempati and enjoy yourselves it is a great place to unwind.

Super Sempati

from A TripAdvisor Member
I chose the Sempati from the web site and found it all to be exactly as advertised. Ercan the manager arranged everything flights, taxis and poolside room for a very reasonable price. and all the arrangements worked like clockwork.
we found the hotel to be very clean and pleasant, bed rooms were of a good size with excellent bathrooms with a shower and bath.
we were on half board and the set menu was good with 4 choices each night for starters and main courses with a self service dessert buffet. Portions were more than adequate.
Ercan and his staff were friendly and helpful without being intrusive, service was quick and efficient and always friendly and pleasant
a hotel dog and 2 cats helped to give you the home from home feel and they were excellently looked after
We did not have a car and used the local dolmus service(miniBuses) to travel around, we found them to be frequent, cheap and friendly and a good way to meet the locals and to get to know the area they run from the top of the road which is 3 minute walk away and they beep and stop for you anywhere along the road.
Lovely pool area with lots of loungers etc and with poolside service all day, for me the only drawback was the local beach was run by another establishment and you had to pay to access it, staff advised instead a visit to the next village for the free beach there.
It was spring when we visited and the fields and roads were covered with wild flowers and very colourful everyone we met was pleasant and friendly going out of their way to help and touristy areas were not too pushy once you said no it was Ok
Brilliant holiday Thanks Ercan and staff

PS We travelled by CT airlines and apart from an hours delay either way the plane was comfortable plenty of legroom(I'm 5'10") and the lunch on the way home was the best airline food I've ever had!!!!

Incredibly Welcoming Staff

from alliebdive
We stayed here for 4 days while on a property hunting visit to Northern Cyprus. Although the hotel is very much a tourist class hotel, for welcoming and obliging staff it is better than most 5 star establishments. Nothing is too much trouble and you are made to feel very special from the welcoming drink offered at check in, through all the rest of the personal touches.
Our room (127) was smallish but had a million dollar view from the terrace right down to the sea. The pool area was extremely nice - wish the weather had been better and we could have enjoyed it. The bar is good, they have plenty of English books to borrow. The restaurant is really good. We were on b&b and every morning there was a good hot and cold choice with either scrambled, poached or boiled eggs, cheeses, fruit, cereal, cakes, fresh breads, yoghurt etc. The dinner menu changed daily and they offered a three course menu with choices at each course for 21 Turkish Lira (under £10) a head.
There are too many good restaurants nearby to eat in though. Can heartily recommend both L'Address and Ambiance up the road towards Kyrenia. They are both on the seashore. We had a meze that just went on and on and on for 21 Turkish Lira each - the meat courses were particularly fantastic.
There is a small cove in front of the hotel that looks very clean and inviting or Escape Beach is about a mile up the road.
The hotel will organise car hire for you, air and taxi pickup.
We flew into Larnaca (1.5 hours drive away in Southern Cyprus) and they arranged for a car to meet us, bring us to the hotel and take us back again for our flight home. The hire car was waiting outside the hotel door as promised.
They made us an incredibly good price. 4 nights bed and breakfast for two people. Car hire for 4 days. 3 trips to Larnaca airport (my husband came the day after me and had to be picked up too). All for £265 total.
We would certainly stay here again.

Come and stay here!!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
What can I say - everything ran like clockwork, the taxi from/to the airport was great, hotel very clean, rooms very good especially the suite rooms that have balconies with fab views. Staff very friendly and genuinely so - cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable. Pool area has more than enough sunbeds with matresses for that extra comfort. Very quiet, very relaxing if that is what you need, would recommend a car as main road is very dark at night and most restaurants are a good walk away, although the dolmush is a great experience!

Only downside is the flights via Turkey which are long and CTA seats not that comfortable - I would try going to Larnaca and travelling North next time.

Best Holiday ever

from patricia-7
We were in the minority. The majority of the guests at the Sempati (which was fully booked) had been there a number of times over the last few years. Some had already been before this year. One family we spoke to had visited the hotel on no less than 8 occasions.
The care and attention lavished on the guests has to be experienced to be believed. Nothing was too much trouble. If there was nothing on the menu that you liked, ask for what you wanted, and they would try to oblige you. The food was excellent and the service by the staff even better.
The pool was of top quality the rooms cool and comfortable. A car hire service is available at the hotel which provides an oasis of comfort and care from which to enjoy the beauty of North Cyprus.
I cannot imagine anywhere the could provide a better holiday experience than the Hotel Sempati; whether you wish to go searching for the places of interest that abound in the area or simply to chill out with a cool drink round the pool.
My thanks go to Erkan and his staff.

A Wonderful Holiday

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed in one of the six bunglows on site although most of the rooms are in the mainbuilding with stunning sea views and a backdrop of mountains. The hotel staff were all wonderful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They were friendly helpful and hard working. We were actully on our honeymoon and although we had not asked for the bunglow, we were given the one right in the corner-our own little bit of privacy! this was typical of the thoughtfulness of the hotel staff. Everywhere was immaculatly clean. The pool terrace and hotel is very well designed making maximum use of views, sun and shade. We found it an absolute pleasure to be there and would strongly recommend it to anyone

Top Local Tips for Kyrenia

Blue Palace worth a visit not well known. It is situated inside an army camp and was once the property of a gun runner. It is still furnished with his furniture and soft furnishings and has a few quirky things that have you gripped.

Traveling around You do need a hire car to make you an independent traveller

watch where you eat Keep away from the harbour, its good for a drink but be careful where you eat,
