About Merit Cyprus Gardens


The Merit Cyprus Gardens Hotel is perfect for those who love sand, sea and open skies on their North Cyprus holiday. With a private beach, richly planted gardens, and a choice of villas or hotel rooms, the Merit Cyprus Gardens offers summer holiday relaxation for all the family.

Sitting on its own sandy beach on Famagusta Bay, the Merit Cyprus Gardens Holiday Village (its official name) is just made for relaxing summer holidays. Laze by the pool, stroll by the sea, take a nap in a hammock in the shady gardens, or try your luck in the casino - there’s always something new to enjoy.

Quality hotel rooms and traditional villas

Choose from a well-appointed hotel room with all mod cons, or live life the Mediterranean way in a pretty whitewashed villa - with a kitchen, king sized bed, rain shower, and jacuzzi! Whichever accommodation you choose, all teh facilities of this luxury hotel are ready for you to enjoy.

Long sandy beach and sunny swimming pools

Few North Cyprus hotels can boast of their own 1.5km beach with private pier, AND a sun-drenched swimming pool set in lush gardens! Spend your day lulled by the lapping of waves on the beach, where the view stretches all the way to Turkey. Or, relax with a book by the sparkling clean swimming pool while the kids splash around in safety. Cooling drink are never far away, with both a Pool Bar and Beach Bar available during the summer months. 

As much activity as you want

At the Merit Cyprus Gardens Hotel Famagusta, you can learn to scuba dive, take a tennis lesson, ride a horse through the surf, or try your luck in the glittering casino. Hire a car and explore the ancient sites, take the local bus into the walled city of Famagusta, or enjoy a jeep safari to the rugged Karpaz Peninsula, home to the famously grumpy wild donkeys!

Relaxed buffet garden restaurant 

Love buffet food and love to eat outside? The Garden Restaurant offers a tempting selection of Cypriot and international dishes, with the choice between cool, inside dining or al fresco tables under the bougainvillea-covered pergolas. 

Great North Cyprus hotel for kids

Children will love the Merit Cyprus Gardens Hotel, with its playground set amongst the trees, and easy access to the lovely sandy beach. Horse-mad kids will especially adore the Merit Cyprus Gardens Horse Club, where they can enjoy riding lessons and pony treks along the beach. They’ll also love exploring the ancient ruins of Salamis just down the road – no kids can resist the remains of open air Roman toilets!

Quieter east coast location

The east coast of North Cyprus is stunning; sweeping sea views, sandy beaches, ancient ruins, traditional fishing villages, and the walled city of Famagusta to explore. It’s also less developed and quieter than the sometimes overcrowded north coast. So, you can always find a space on the beach, a shady spot under a tree, and a table for a tasty freshly-caught fish dinner at a local restaurant - for a fraction of Kyrenia prices!

Only 40 minutes from Ercan Airport

Transfers from Ercan International Airport to the Merit Cyprus Gardens Holiday Village are a joy, an easy drive on empty roads where traffic jams simply don’t happen. While others Kyrenia-bound guests are still on the road, you can be relaxing by the pool or enjoying a drink from the Moonlight bar. How lovely is that!

"Relaxing and top quality"

Lovely seafront hotel, we stayed for a week and felt very relaxed. Our room was large and well equipped with coffee making facilities. During our stay it was cleaned regularly and wifi connectivity was surprisingly good in the room. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, they were attentive to guests' requests and very polite. Great swimming pool and the food was good, plenty of choice at breakfast....

Lots of green space, trees and flowers in the gardens and the beach is very easy to access. Nice quiet location. Overall a good quality break, very relaxing in a lovely location.

"Superb staff and service"

Merit Cyprus Gardens is by far the best hotel we've stayed at in the north of the country, of the three times we've visited the region. We booked through gonorthcyprus for a week away and have returned feeling very impressed. The staff and service are outstanding. Our room was clean and tidy, perhaps a litlte outdated but comfortable and pleasant. The food is varied and delicious and the location is excellent...

with a lovely sandy beach that is always well kept. Great bar area and general laidback atmosphere. The hotel was peaceful while we were there, I can't speak for it in peak season though, perhaps it's more lively. It suited us to a tee and we would be very happy to return.

"Relaxing and quiet, nice terrace and beach, wife and I loved it"

I took my wife away for a week through gonorthcyprus, we stayed at the Merit Cyprus Gardens to make the most of the beautiful weather. Hotel is pleasant and peaceful, we had a very clean and well appointed room and found the staff to be friendly and approachable. Toiletries and bottled water in the room that were replenished regularly and air con was efficient. The food was very good and lots of it, nice...

terrace area for al fresco dining. Good sized pool and very nice small but private beach area with plenty of loungers. Just an ideal place to relax really. Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend Merit Cyprus Gardens to other travellers.
