We went for a debrief at the end of 6 weeks in Thailand. It was great! The breakfast buffet was AWESOME! They have 4 pools and you feel like you are by yourself on this beach resort! Very quiet and restful place to be! Not many restaurants to go to but if you want to stay close by and not... More

We arrived on the 29th May thoroughly enjoying our stay. Great food at the restaurants. Rooms are very clean and quite nice. Beach is right at you door step and it is beautiful, there are 4 main pools to choose from if you dont like to swim at the beach. Look for Roy Yim and Ruan Thai restaurant worth going... More

Stayed here with my friend in April this year. What a fabulous place. From the moment you arrive I'm this resort you feel like you are somewhere special. We didn't like the location of the first room we were allocated so were given another one overlooking a beautiful tranquil pool. We stayed bed and breakfast here as didn't want to... More

Stayed at the Merlin for 1 week and found the staff genuinely friendly and helpful. Warm greetings were always happily handed out making the stay that much more pleasant. Beautiful pools and well tended gardens were heaven. The buffet breakfasts were fantastic with a huge selection of foods on offer. Clean, neat rooms were a pleasure to stay in.

Excellent breakfast buffet, multiple swimming pools, in-pool bar, plenty of lounges to park your fat can and soak up some rays, bar/restaurant down by the beach, on-site parking, friendly staff, a near jungle-like property with meandering streams and tons of trees, and prices that won't scare you stiff. Seven kilometers down the road is a nice commercial district with all... More

We stayed here for 6 nights mid May. The hotel and grounds were spotless and well maintained, the breakfast buffet was adequate, not a huge selection for vegetarians. Would have liked to have seen more Thai food on the menu. Because it was the beginning of the low season not many guests it was just perfect. It was a short... More

Stayed here for 5 nights at beginning of May. It was very quiet as it was the start of low season but this meant it was easy to find a pool lounger or book a massage (the massage is highly recommended). It's a fairly big complex with a number of pools, one with a swim up bar but none of... More

Stayed at the Merlin for more than two weeks. Hotel was lovely and clean, gardens well maintained, rooms were also spacious and clean. five swimming pools and a lovely beach. Restaurant food very nice and quite reasonably priced, but if you're looking for something a little cheaper, then just down the road were some very good restaurants and bars. Would... More
