This was our first trip to Thailand and we stayed at Merlin Beach for 6 nights. The location is fantastic and the outdoor facilities (pools, etc) very good. But, the rooms are dated (noisy aircon, etc), the service is at best average (we waited 30 mins for drinks and 45 mins for food one lunchtime when we were the ones... More

We chose the Merlin based purely off the pools. We were not disappointed. They have 3 enormous pools to swim in one geared towards adults only, another geared towards the kids and the main pool catering for everyone. We came as a couple and payed AUD$200 a night and stayed in a room on the 4th floor overlooking the adults... More

Wonderful location just far enough away from Patong town so partying is a quick trip away but you do not have to deal with vendors and parties all night. Many wonderful clean pools. Comfortable. Good sleep and service. All in all great trip just avoid inside tour operator who is insanely over priced. Hope to be back soon.

My partner and I spent 2 weeks (21st Nov-6th Dec) all inclusive at the Merlin Beach resort. I can 100% absolutely recommend it and I will definitely be returning. The location is great - Patong is a good night out but you DO NOT want to stay there. Merlin beach is 3km away or a 10 min taxi ride. All... More

We stayed for almost 2 weeks. The resort itself is stunning and great location if u still want to be in Patong but out of the rat race. But the majority of staff are from Finland which actively promotes the Finnish culture over the Thai. An intereating note were the Finnish staff looking after the Europeans... The Thai staff are...

The hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful. Food and drink was very expensive in the hotel. The free bus into Patong ran about four times daily last bus back was 10.30 pm so we had extra costs for taxis each day Unfortunately the beach was disappointing and the short walk to the other beach is no longer due to...

Me and a good girl friend stayed here as part as of our 2 week thailand holiday. We stayed 6 nights and it was great. The place was huge. I would say that the hallways and flooring are a little outdated and not particularly nice to look at. However our room was beautiful. We stayed in a double room (2... More

My sister and I stopped at Merlin Beach for 2 nights on our tour of Thailand. It was a nice enough hotel though we weren't totally in love with our room. I'm not sure if we were in an older wing of the hotel, but the room we had was very dark and dingy - nothing like the rooms in... More
