The rooms was good, the pool area is really beautiful and nice. But, the buffet was really terrible and unfortinately with kids - you have to eat from the buffet to "enjoy" the entertainment. The kids entertainment was ok but the two guys "singing" and "playing" 5 nights out of 7 was painful to listen to. The two week experience... More

We stayed at this resort for 2 nights. Out of my entire 7 day trip, I was excited about this hotel the most because it costed the most (CDN ($150/per night)). The airport was an absolute night mare. There are cab drivers trying to cheat you left right and center. I think its fair to stay that there are no... More

This hotel is simply stunning, we were in room 3310 over looking the pool, & happily recommend this room for being quite sumptuous, comfortable & just great. The hotel is on a lovely stretch of almost private beach, the food in the hotel (other than breakfast) was top notch, the breakfast was ok but nothing more & luke warm, like... More

When I booked this hotel I was going on recommendation from a lot of people. When I arrived I was a little disappointed with the greeting of the front reception staff I found them to be rude and unfriendly. The rooms were good and spacious. The breakfast really wasnt anything to rave about again I found the staff were disinterested.To... More

Just far enough out of Patong to enjoy the peace but a quick and cheap tuk tuk ride to town or take the complimentary shuttle bus which runs twice per day. The pools are the best feature of Merlin and the swim up bar is lovely. We didn't find the kids a a bother and they were nowhere near our... More

I am with the supporters of this establishment. We stayed with a family group of 12 ranging over three generations and from 7 to 75 and we all enjoyed it. It is peaceful and pleasant and sufficiently far from the bustle of Patong to feel like an oasis. Rooms are excellent and the food good and the pools delightful. Hotel... More

Merlin Beach Resort in Phuket is a strange anomaly of what you think you are going to get and what you actually receive as part of the “All Inclusive Package”. I’ll cut straight to the facts, landing at 04:15 in the morning and after 1hr 15mins clearing immigration their was only a 45 minute taxi ride to the resort. In... More

We were recommended this resort by our travel agent for the second part of our Honeymoon. Unfortunately we were more than disappointed that we were going to have to stay here. We arrived and were put into a room overlooking a the kids pool with no honeymoon treat like requested in paperwork. All we could hear was kids and lots... More
