Me and my partner are both in our early 30's and wanted somewhere quiet and relaxing and we were recommended to NorthCyprusGetaway.com by a friend. I have travelled all over the world and as such like to research my holiday before committing to anything. I tried a few holiday companies in Cyprus who gave me quotes, but couldn't really tell me anything other than what they were reading off their computer screens. When I finally spoke to Tracy from NorthCyprusGetaway.com I was bowled over by how much she knew about the island. Tracy is what I class as an north cyprus expert because she gave us some great advice on what to do and where to go, and she saved us a small fortune. Our car hire quote alone was nearly half the price I had been quoted elsewhere! We decided to spend one week at both Apartments and I cannot pick a winner as they are both top notch.
Hill Top is great for seeing all the places to the east of the island and the apartment is large and the facilities are great with numerous pools (a huge one is located to the rear of the apartment). The restaurants are very nice and near by with around 3 or 4 located around a small harbour not far away. The stay there was faultless and as said by other reviews it really did feel like a home for the week.
Crystal Bay Apartment is my favourite as it is nestled at the foot of the mountains so you have great views whichever way you look! The apartment is spacious with the master bedroom being huge. The pool is right next to the apartment and we were there for a whole week and were the only people to use it. The people who live on this complex all year round are extremely helpful and friendly and we were made to feel very welcome, but you really don't see anyone which makes it so peaceful. The walk up the mountain path is one of the nicest i've ever been on and I have been on a few so I would reccomend that. Kyrenia isn't far away (about 30 mins in the car) and has a beautiful harbour which is very old, a real picture postcard place. We highly recommend a restaurant called Niazi's as their mixed grill is heaven on a plate.
For me Northern Cyprus is better than the south for numerous reasons, but the main ones are that it is totally unspoilt (there's no western commercialism like the south - not a mcdonalds or burger king anywhere! Which I see as a good thing). The people are quiet, respectful and friendly and do not try and sell you things. It is a place that you have to see to believe as it's a lovely relaxing place. I am definitely going back to the Cyrstal Bay Apartment there this year (2013).

I had the great pleasure of staying at the apartment at Hilltop, Bogaz. My husband and two teenage children accompanied me to a beautiful relaxing holiday. Minutes from the beautiful crystal blue sea of the Med, it was truly gorgeous. The facilities were second to none, could not fault in any way. Everything to ensure that you had a home from home holiday was laid on. Even two pools literally outside the door!
Out and about, we visited all the beach side restaurants just minutes from the apartment. We particularly liked the one which had a promenade that went right into the sea area, very nice to hear the waves crashing at the side as you eat. One restaurant by the fishing bay served us fresh fish from the sea, can't get much better than that. We wanted to see the island and all its beauty so we hired a car and went to the beautiful city of Kyrenia with lots of shops and stunning eateries , again by the sea. We also went to the Waterpark at Lapta and went to the beautiful beach at Karpaz.
If it is peace and tranquility you want then this is the place for you. I will be booking again as I can not think of a nicer place.

Thankyou for a lovely stay at Hilltop apartments in Bogaz. spent a week there with my family of 5 in November 2012.
Lovely spacious apartment with quality furnishings,well equipped with everything you need to make your stay like home from home.Lovely sun terrace at the front to have breakfast on, with views of the blue sea. The complex is beautiful and very well kept,small pool to the front side of the apartment and a huge pool at the back with sun loungers.
There's a bar which serves good food just 1 minute walk away which has plenty of outside seating to sit and relax in the sun. The beautiful unspoilt traditional fishing harbour of Bogaz is just 5 mins away in the car.Blue med sea all around, spent many mornings watching the fishing boats bringing the days catch in, the restaurants on the harbour serve the fish the locals have caught that day ,never tasted fish so fresh !! , this is truly an unspoilt part of the Mediterranean.
Loved our stay there, quiet relaxing,unspoilt part of north Cyprus,would recommend a visit and will definitely be returning.
- We had a blissful stay at Hilltop Apartment for 2 weeks in the summer of 2011. On arrival we found the ground floor apartment to be clean and tidy with fresh towels and bedding, my son was almost 2 at the time and the apartment was tastefully decorated with everything we needed, yet i didn't feel at all anxious that he would break or ruin anything. This comfort is a godsend when travelling with small children; straight away it felt like 'home'. The apartment was perfect for us; both bedrooms were spacious and had generous wardrobe/drawer space. The kitchen/diner was well equipped and even had a blender to make my son's favourite icy poles! The lounge space was big enough to spread out in and would have easily accommodated a larger family. I was thrilled to see that not only did the apartment overlook a family pool, but was only paces away from a huge swimming pool and a splash pool that was ideal for my son. As it was so shallow he could play and I could sit inches from him on a sun lounger and relax in the beautiful sunshine. From here we looked to the mountains on one side and to the blue sea on the other...heavenly!!!! The resort was peaceful and quiet, whilst eating breakfast we would sit on the spacious balcony watching birds fly from colourful flower to flower, and in the evenings, this outside space was fresh and relaxing. The local restaurant was one of the highlights of our break, the food was authentically Cypriot, well priced and delicious. There are car hire facilities close by and an excellent supermarket with a range of international foods is only minutes away. We would highly recommend Hilltop Apartment to couples, groups and families...it really is perfect for everyone.Adel and Tony. Perth, Australia
