Our third trip to Patong but the first with our 3 small daughters aged 10,8 and 6 and to this hotel, the Merlin was an absolute joy. When I made the booking, I was a little nervous by other reviews, but thought an older hotel would be offset by the great swimming facilities (besides most of the day you'd be... More

this was our first time in this resort and in Phuket. our rooms were clean, the staff were friendly, the restaurants were nice but quite expensive. We got rooms next to the pool which was really nice. The biggest negative about the resort was the location- there is a free bus service taking you into Patong and back twice a... More

Second time to Merlin Beach resort after a great visit a few years back. Still great facilities -outstanding pools. Great outdoor spaces, good size clean rooms. Sad to say though it is lacking some inspiration. Service has dropped with many staff struggling to speak English or have any interest in your needs. The breakfast is tired and not of the... More

Great spot but a little isolated. 5 mins from Patong in a Tuk Tuk. Merlin Beach Resort on Tri Trang is an fantastic place to stay and their pools are amazing, with great service and beautiful rooms, standard is very high. Beach is corally in the water which is a bit of a pain. Great massages on the beach here.......... More

My partner and I stopped at Merlin Beach Resort for a week in a Pool Access room. The room was fantastic; clean, comfortable and well maintained. Having the pool on our doorstep enabled us to spend all day in and out of the pool. However, no pool access after 8pm in an area with 30 degree nights is a little... More
