Set in a country location at the foot of the Kyrenia mountains and on the outskirts of the village of Alsancak, Riverside Garden Resort offers the perfect romantic getaway and holidays for Couples in North Cyprus, especially in April and May and again in September and October. Most of our visitors come to relax and enjoy the warm sunny weather but there are plenty of other diversions on hand to make the couples holiday a more fulfilling experience.

There are country lanes to amble around for that evening constitutional and a good selection of restaurants within walking distance. The Riverside courtesy bus runs on a regular schedule to Kyrenia centre for those wanting to explore a little further afield but there is a frequent local bus service too which runs into town with connections there to places like Nicosia.


A hire car gives you even more feedom. There are three wonderful and challenging Crusader castles to explore in the mountains, Kyrenia harbour and castle to visit, the ancient site of Salamis, the old walled city of Famagusta and the blue line tour of Nicosia. More than enough places to explore in a single vist.

The mountains are nearby and there are good walking trails right on the doorstep.

The cooler weather in this season is ideal for more active holidays although there are still many sunny days where sunbathing is an option.

With the climate so unpredictable these days, it is hard to generalise on the winter weather. This said, about 5 out of 6 winters are mostly dry with inadequate rain. January and February are the coldest months when daytime temperatures are on average around 14 -16 degrees centigrade but with a southerly wind and sunshine, it can easily reach 20 or 22 degrees. All rooms have heaters and extra heating can be supplied if required.

Car hire rates are at the cheapest and many of our guests just hire them for the whole duration of their stay. This gives them total freedom to go on explorations to castles, ancient sites or to new walking areas.


There is excellent walking in the Kyrenia mountains, some reached on foot from the hotel, and there is not a winter month without flowers to see. The orange and lemon trees are in full fruit and there are plenty of resident birds around.
