About Merit Crystal Cove Hotel
Five Star Luxury with All Inclusive Plus
The Merit Crystal Cove Hotel sets the standard for other North Cyprus 5 star hotels, with a winning combination of a modern hotel with good old fashioned 'attention to detail' customer service. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this international hotel. Set right on the water's edge, with its own secluded sandy cove, and with lots of activities, live events and spectacular buffet dining to enjoy, the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel is 5 star in every way.
Stunning Beach Location
At the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel, the sparkling Mediterranean Sea is just at the end of the hotel’s immaculate gardens. Stroll down to the immaculate lawn terraces set above the beach complete with day beds in shady pergolas, or the most comfortable luxury hammocks you'll ever snooze in.
Secluded, Private Sandy Cove
Dig your toes into the soft sand of the hotel's own private beach shielded from winds and tides and under the protective gaze of the lifeguard during the summer. There's sun loungers to stretch out on, a beach towel service, shallow safe waters to swim or paddle in, and a range of watersports if you fancy some serious fun on the sea. The beach bar will serve you cooling drinks and superb snacks all day long too.
Stylish Swimming Pool
Our GNC team loves the swimming pool at the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel, with its rich planting and curved design that makes it feel as if you're swimming in a garden! With lots of sun loungers and a large separate terraced area for dining, the Merit pool is a lovely area to spend time in.
All Inclusive Dining That Really Is All Inclusive
It sometimes feels like all inclusive hotel deals in North Cyprus exclude more than they include - not so at the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel. During high season they offer Ultra All Inclusive.
Impeccable culinary tastes that will have you experiencing Merits Turkish and International flavours that will have you experiencing Merit's hospitality.
Five Restaurants to choose from
There's hardly an hour of the day or night when you can't enjoy some of North Cyprus's best cuisine at the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel. The buffet dining in the Crystal Restaurant offers a vast range of dishes, many made with local produce and organic vegetables. The Hasir restaurant on the beach serves a village style 'rustic' breakfast during the summer, complete with home-made jams, comb honey and fresh bread from the oven. At night it transforms into the Lambusa restaurant, serving fresh fish and seafood within earshot of the waves.
For amazing views with your meal, head for the Panorama Restaurant on the sixth floor of the hotel, where the food is as amazing as the view. Opt for the fun of creating your own kebab at the Ottoman Kebab House, complete with authentic tiled decor, or enjoy fine dining in the hotel casino.
Five Bars to choose from
At the Lobby Aquarium Bar, you really can leave your cash back in your room safe, as it serves free soft drinks and local alcoholic beverages all day, tea and snacks at 4 pm, and soup and sandwiches at midnight! The outside Sunset Bar is perfect for a drink with a view, and the Pool Bar is open from 10 am to midnight, serving free local soft drinks and local beers. And even when you've tried all those, you've still to experience the salad lunches at the Beach Bar, the hookah pipe bar and late night drinks at the Scala Club bar...
Light & Airy Bedrooms And Luxury Bathrooms
At the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel, the bedrooms have lots of space, and sleek bathrooms fitted with cooling Italian marble. Every room is kept at just the right temperature with efficient air conditioning, so you can relax and watch the satellite TV, admire the view through the large windows, or lie back with a drink from the mini bar after a hard day's relaxing in the Cyprus sun! Adjoining/interconnected and accessible rooms are available to accommodate your specific needs.
Spa and Wellness Centre with Snow Room!
Make time to experience the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel spa and wellness centre. Heat up in the sauna, relax in the stream room and chat in the traditional Turkish bath. Experience the 'adventure shower', then cool down in the amazing snow room/ice cave. Pamper yourself with a hot stone, Balinese or Shiatsu massage. Choose an indulgent beauty treatment including collagen facial treatments, skin masks and mud envelopment treatments. Work out in the Merit Crystal Cove gym, with its wide range of the latest gym machines, or challenge other guests on the tennis courts, basketball court, and beach volleyball field.
Entertainment for all ages
The Merit Crystal Cove Hotel is very welcoming to children, and has two kids' clubs to keep them entertained. There's a separate children's swimming pool, play area, a diving school with lessons for young beginners, and for horse-mad kids, there's even a pony club (charges may apply).
In the evenings, the hotel stages shows and concerts by celebrity performers from Turkey, offering you a taste of music and entertainment that's quite different and absolutely world class.
World Poker Tour Venue Casino
The international stars of the WPT come here to play the "Thinking man's game" Texas Hold' Em, but you can enjoy the gaming tables, slots and extraordinary atmosphere anytime in the hotel's glittering casino.
Stress-Free Transfers From Ercan Airport

"Opulent and luxurious"
We decided to push the boat out with an out of season holiday this March and the Merit Crystal Cove Hotel was just what we had in mind. We found the hotel online when browsing gonorthcyprus.com and Gary in sales got us a very good price that included airport transfers, so we were very pleased. When we arrived the staff handled check in quickly and efficiently, we were given a large and very luxurious room with...
a fantastic sea view. The decor is extravagant and we loved it. We enjoyed the indoor swimming pool, spa and casino, there are also beautiful gardens outside with lots of exotic birds. The food is to die for - wonderful variety on offer, all cooked beautifully and top quality. You can also use the facilities of other Merit hotels in the area, which is an added bonus. Superb out of season stay!

"Lovely modern hotel"
My husband and I visited Merit Crystal cove recently for a week out of season. We were checked in no problem by a very efficient man and found that during our stay, all of the staff members were equally friendly and helpful. Our room was large and luxurious, very clean and serviced daily. The food was excellent quality, very varied and readily available and the waiting on staff just as efficient as the...
employees throughout the rest of the hotel. There are such lovely mature gardens outside, it's very relaxing to take a walk around the grounds and the vast beach too. Not really the weather for swimming but just looking out over the water is relaxing enough. We had a lovely time.

"A delightful week away"
My husband and I booked a deal through gonorthcyprus.com for a week at Merit Crystal Cove and were delighted with our getaway. The hotel is set in an outstanding location with superb views, we were blown away by the beauty of the location and the lovely gardens too. Employees all around the hotel were very friendly and keen to please, from reception staff to the waiters, and we had a good, large room, well...
furnished and nicely decorated. No signs of wear whatsoever. The pool is wonderful, very clean and clear and there are plenty of spots outdoors in the shade. The food is just brilliant, plenty of choice, and the hotel overall is kept spotless. A great stay.
