We were pleasantly surprised with the Merit Cyprus Gardens. Although part of the Merit Group, this hotel is a 3* and smaller than the usual 5* hotels within the group. With standard rooms, villas and junior suites you have a choice of room types. We asked for one of the renovated rooms and were happy with what we got. Being All Inclusive was a bonus as the food was lovely, with a good selection so everyone could find something they liked. The staff were helpful and made us feel welcome. Not being a fan of 5* or large hotels, we were more than happy with the smaller 3* version.
