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

Arrived at the Merlin on the 5th May for 11 nights. Check-in was prompt and efficient but no more than that. We had booked two rooms with pool access, 2110/2111, and they were extremely quiet and peaceful, apart from one morning when we could hear what sounded like a cistern filling with water for 10 - 15 minutes in the...

We stayed here for the last part of our Thailand break. The hotel was very clean and the room large and airy. Plenty of storage space, large deep bath, walk in shower and huge bed. We only ate breakfast here, which was excellent. We were not impressed by the menu for the evening. This may have been because it was... More

We stayed at the Merlin Hotel for 2 weeks having just returned. The hotel is in a lovely setting with lots of trees and garden areas. The beach area is very beautiful and totally unspoilt with no sunbeds on beach. The hotel itself is looking a bit tired. I felt the gardens could have done with a bit more care,... More

From the moment we arrived everything was perfect. We were warmly greeted with ice-cold flannels and fresh lemon juice by the reception team before being showed to our deluxe room (2304). Everything about the room was immaculate - outstanding floor space, nice open bathroom and an enormous bed to lose yourselves in! We also enjoyed the balcony which was by... More

Check in was efficient, we were sat down with a member of staff who went through the hotel amenities with us, and... More
