We arrived Feb 9th for a two centre holiday and were immediately made most welcome by all the staff we met. The breakfasts were superb, day time meals were pretty cheap for a hotel and the view were great whilst eating them! The service was quick, polite and always friendly. The room was immaculate and the mini bar always stocked.... More

We loved staying at the merlin beach hotel, not the one in Patong town but the one up the hill on the private beach as there are two merlin beach hotels, don't stay at the wrong one. 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

- Another review in need of a half star, because this is more of a 3.5 - The pools, restaurant, bars and surrounds are beautiful. Food was delicious - breakfast had a wide variety of foods, and dinner at the main restaurant was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. The pools are huge and warm and clean, with plenty...

A good hotel with private beach. Not so far from the maddening crowds of Patong that the hardy could not walk there - if steep hills are viewed as an opportunity for exercise! The hotel shuttle bus is the preferred option and, indeed the staff use this at shift change too so, can be relied upon. The swimming pools are... More

Home away from home. Our 5th stay at the beautiful Merlin Beach Resort didn’t disappoint us this time either. The whole package including everything from the airport pick-up to checking out is just outstandingly best in the whole world. Nothing to complain about. Heavenly hideaway, from where you get to the hustle & bustle of Patong beach in just five... More

I have always wanted to stay at a beach resort. Being my first trip overseas with my partner I wanted it to be special and magical. I admit it wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but then, if I got what I wanted I would probably be paying 10 times the amount I did for Merlin Beach Resort! The... More

This was a perfect hotel to wind down after a hectic wedding ceremony! We took a lot of time selecting the perfect hotel and were not disappointed. This is a huge premise with lots of discoveries to be made. We had an awesome time there and would definitely recommend for a romantic stay or with families. One disadvantage is the... More

We are a family of 4 and we stayed here during the first week of March 2015. Our kids are 6 and 9 years old. Overall the Hotel grounds are beautiful. The private beach is quite good for snorkeling when it is a high tide but during the low tide it is almost impossible to get to water. Anyway, beach... More
