as a family resort this place probably ticks all the boxes. if however you are after a quite retreat this is not the place to stay. generally the facilities are in line with this standard of property and if you have kids it's great. for seasoned travelers there's nothing particularly memorable about the place foods okay can't buy a light...

We just left Merlin Beach Resort after 8 night stay there. We booked 2 pool access rooms which were a little secluded and so luxurious, stepping out the door to your pool is a gorgeous experience. Im surprised there have been some poor reviews around the same time - it was school holidays in many places which adds to the... More

I have just returned from Thailand. I stayed at this hotel for eight days. We got a very good deal ( 8 days pay 4) It is a beautiful hotel with stunning gardens and pools. It has a private beach which we used every day. The breakfast was included in the price and it was very nice. Plenty of variety... More

Just spent 8 nights at Merlin. The resort is located about a 10 min drive up the hill out of Patong. We were happy with our pool access room but disappointed with the adjoining beach as you could not swim in it due to all the rocks. Breakfast was adequate with a large choice but just standard tea & coffee... More

We stayed at this resort for 11 nights. This was our 4th trip to Thailand as a family of 2 adults and 3 children aged 9, 7 & 6. I am certainly not one to complain, and we did read positive reviews of merlin beach prior to booking, however, our experience was certainly not positive!!!! The service in the resort... More

We've never been in SE Asia for a family holiday. But we were pleasantly surprised by this. The resort is tucked away in a cove which means the beach only has hotel guests on it. The beach is lovely but you can't swim easily as the shore is very rocky and it would be dangerous for kids to swim there... More

Our family stayed at the Merlin for 10nights in Sep 2014 and we absolutely loved it. From the time we checked in late at night through to our departure we thoroughly enjoyed our time and will definitely be back as soon as possible. The resort is 3klms out of Patong which is fantastic - it is nice and quiet. With... More

After choosing to get married at the Merlin Beach Resort, we were assigned a wedding planner and what can I say, Petchari was amazing! In the lead up to the wedding, emailing Petchari back and forth was no trouble at all. There was no language barrier and any requests I had she made it happen. She had plenty of photo's... More

Very nice resort. It is clean, the meals are nice. However it is a few Kms out of Patong. There is a free shuttle in to town but we found the times very inconvenient and ended up sending a lot of money on taxi's in and out of Patong. The beach is very rocky, you can't really swim in the... More
