Well this is our last visit here. If you like drum and Base music at full volume this is for you. If like everyone else other than the management the dj and 4 dancers then you will hate it. The noise was inescapable! 8 hours a day of thump thump thump. On the beach on the sand at the merit... More

We visited the hotel many times and were so happy in the past. In our last visit we noticed that many of the crew already absent since left the hotel for a new hotel. We were so much happy with previous crew which were so much familiar with guests. Hotel open buffet is extremely good except diabetics choices. We hope... More

We have just returned from a week’s stay at the Merit Crystal Cove and we were a little disappointed. The hotel is in a lovely setting, however it is a bit dated. The bright signs in the lobby area highlighting the casino and stairs to the beach are completely out of place, and look tacky. The hotel markets itself as... More

We visited Merit Crystal Cove whilst staying at a villa for a change of scenery (and a day off cooking...and washing up!) It cost us 125TL for an adult and 40TL for the kids. It is decent value! All our food and drinks were included, the beaches (2 areas, great for snorkelling) and pools and towels. All added up to... More

My husband and I stayed at Merit crystal for 6 nights(room 103) which was our best holiday ever! Outstanding landscape, various delicious foods, charming staff, snacks and drinks always available, and so many things that supposed to be in a real 5 star ultra all inclusive hotel. It would be more fun if there was a water park nearby and... More

We have visited Merit Crystal Cove for 3 times. It is like an Oasis by the clear sea, great food, helpful staff and lots of attractions for kids. Beware of the construction though, they are adding extra wings to the hotel. Rooms needed renovation, which is also recognized by the management so the refurbishment is taking place. Air conditioner is... More

Was disappointed on arrival as reception looked tired and dull, but soon changed my mind. The staff were lovely, friendly and always ready to please, the grounds are amazing, so well kept (despite the ongoing building works which did NOT cause any disruption). The animals are worth visiting and are clean and happy. Several feral cats but they are very... More
