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

We stayed at this resort for 10 glorious days. It's a piece of heaven away from the hustle and bustle of Patong shopping centre, so great for kids.

Away from all the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach. Quiet and peaceful. Beautiful amenities, 3 pools, private beach tennis courts, kids club and so many restaurants. Friendly attentive staff. Will definitely stay again absolutely superb.

Our family stay at this wonderful resort was so memorable. A place I would definitely come back and visit. The pool area was so beautiful. we spent everyday outside relaxing by the pool ordering pineapple crushed ice drinks and food by the pool daily. What more can you ask for. the meals were reasonably priced

We arrived Feb 9th for a two centre holiday and were immediately made most welcome by all the staff we met.

The room was immaculate and the mini bar always stocked.... More

This hotel was great except for the final night when our airport shuttle didn't arrive, the staff at the main desk were suddenly... More
