“Fantastic hospitality - a wonderful experience”

Rowena from Stourbridge on Mar 29, 2018

I took the family to Merit Crystal Cove for a week away in north Cyprus not really knowing what to expect but Gary at reassured me that we would have a great time, and we did. What a lovely hotel and such a warm welcome, the staff are so hospitable and made us feel totally at ease. Our room was very clean and well appointed, we all slept well. The breakfast buffet was large and tasty, such a great choice and never ran out. The other restaurants are also very good and we would recommend the kebab restaurant in particular. Either way, both are very nice and worth paying a bit extra for, just make sure you book in advance. Lovely gardens and sandy cove right outside the door, great for a wander and taking the kids for a paddle in the sea. We can't wait to come back!

“Fantastic standard of hospitality”

David and Susan from Hampshire on Feb 5, 2018

My wife and I visited Merit Crystal Cove recently for a poker tournament and we really did have a fantastic trip. It was our first time in northern Cyprus so we booked with the specialists GoNorthCyprus, who arranged everything for us including transfers. We had a wonderful room, traditionally decorated and very clean. The staff were welcoming and helpful, we had so many questions and they were ready to oblige at all times. The buffet food was very good and we enjoyed some delicious snacks. The casino is a great facility, lots f fun and the food is exceptional. The only bugbear was a bit of building noise from the renovations but I suppose it's to be expected out of season. Overall a brilliant trip, we would like to return.

“Perfect for a decadent escape”

Hayley from Birkenhead on Sep 14, 2017

My husband and I rarely get away on our own but we had the chance recently so booked a break at the Merit Crystal Cove with gonorthcyprus. We were swung by the images of the hotel's decadent interior and sure enough, when we arrived we found that the hotel to be beautiful, well-kept and with a lovely laid back atmosphere. Our room was clean and airy with a wonderful sea view and was kept clean and tidy by the housekeeping service. Staff are friendly and polite and the food on offer is superb. Service is also excellent but the meals are really to die for, especially the fish dishes, it is worth being all inclusive here unlike in so many other hotels. Beautiful private beach, great selection of restaurants and bars and plenty of amenities like the spa and casino - there is no need to leave the...

“Five stars”

Peter from Salford on Apr 4, 2017

We went to Merit Crystal Cove after reading the reviews online and wow, we expected a few niggles here and there but honestly, it was fantastic. Beautiful setting, spotless hotel and attentive, efficient staff. We booked through gonorthcyprus and were very impressed with the price and the service from Mandy. We were looking for an all inclusive break but unsure what it would be like, as others we've been on have sprung some extra costs on us and quality not always great. Pleasantly surprised at Crystal Cove however, the buffets were enormous and excellent quality, there are also a number of other a la carte restaurants within the complex. It was quiet when we travelled as it was out of season, so we didn't encounter the noise that some other reviewers had mentioned. Very pleasant, large room,...

“All inclusive luxury in beautiful surroundings”

Lorna from Shropshire on Oct 4, 2016

Sometimes with all inclusive deals, we've felt as though we have to compromise on other areas of our holiday, but this wasn't the case with Merit Crystal Cove Hotel. It ticked all the boxes when it came to location, customer service, quality of food, entertainment and decor, just like our booking agent GoNorthCyprus said it would. For a start, we loved the fact it has its own sheltered cove with hammocks, a favourite of ours! It also has a great swimming pool which we enjoyed using when we didn't want to get too sandy, and while we intended to explore Kyrenia more during our break, we found there was enough entertainment at the resort to keep us busy instead. We definitely made the most of the spa with its sauna, Turkish bath and steam room, and though we failed to hit the gym, we hear it...

“Struck gold with the Merit Crystal Cove hotel”

Emma Yates from Inverness on Mar 26, 2016

The Merit Crystal Cove is one if our long time favourites in Northern Cyprus. When looking on for our latest break we spotted it and was instantly taken by the description '..stretching toward the clear waters of the Eastern Mediterranean, Merit Crystal Cove Hotel & Casino is 10 kilometers from Girne's city center and 45 kilometers from Ercan Airport, at the confluence of green and blue right on the sea.' Brilliant decision if I say so myself. After the fast and efficient check in we went up to our room. We had requested a quiet room and that's exactly what we got, with the added bonus of a lovely view. Spacious and comfortable with modern furniture, Wi-Fi and a small balcony to enjoy the view from - bonus!Even though it was out of the main season and a lot of outlets were...

“Brilliant value, memorable anniversary break”

Mike Walters from Birmingham, UK on Mar 8, 2016

My partner and I were looking for a true five-star hotel in North Cyprus and the Merit Crystal Cove came highly recommended by Gary at We asked him to find us somewhere special to celebrate our anniversary and he excelled with this gem we even received a free upgrade because of the special occasion and enjoyed fantastic sea views from our balcony. There's a luxurious spa on site, a great selection of restaurants and a casino too with low limits. A bonus of booking a stay here is that you also have access to the other Merit hotels nearby, which are more luxurious but obviously more expensive. By booking at Crystal Cove, you can take a buggy to the other hotels and use the facilities there too, which is excellent value. We had an amazing week and hope to return!
