This is a large hotel compared to my previous stays abroad, but was surprised how pleasant the stay was. Not quite in the thick of Patong but close enough to leisurely walk to the main drag even in the heat of the day and of course the beach is right across the hotel. As for the service, the staff couldn't... More

We stayed over Oz school holidays place is clean and safe. The pools are clean. Rooms are spacious with my room a beachfront with huge balcony. I felt everything was a task for staff no one smiled and they all seem to stick to each other and giggle make faces. If you want a traditional Thai holiday stay away every... More

Stayed at the Merlin Beach Hotel for 7 days with my family. First impressions of the hotel were good, nice lobby and we had a nice room overlooking the quiet pool which was nice. It was annoying that free wifi was only available in the lobby as most hotels have it in all the rooms as well. It was £5... More

Pleasantly met at reception, drink on arrival, and no fuss with bags delivered to room as expected. We had two rooms adjoining which was ideal to park kids in one while myself and wife had the other. Twin doubles for the kids and a king for us. Rooms are a bit dated but generally in good condition. Shower and bathroom... More

Stayed Australian school holidays July with myself and 2 boys. The resort is in a beautiful location away from hustle and bustle. The pools are the best and most magnificent I have ever seen at any resort and is a plus. The rooms are spacious and clean. The major negatives of the resort is the service. There is no service...

We spent a lovely time at this resort. A previous reviewer mentioned drunk louts - never saw anyone drunk at any time. There were always sun lounges available and the cocktails were very reasonable at $6 each. The buffet breakfast had a great variety of food. The staff were always friendly. We would love to return again. Highly recommend this... More

We booked as a wedding party at a quoted AUD $140 per night. On arrival we were rushed through reception with the amount deducted from my credit card in Baht. Not knowing till we were about to book out that the real rate was AUD $173. When confronted, they said it was the exchange rate difference (which had not changed... More

We have just returned from a 10 day family holiday (2 adults, 3 kids) and are already planning our next trip back. It was an awesome holiday. Despite recommendations from friends, I was a little nervous after reading some reviews here. While no doubt there can be issues, as there can be at any hotel, it is quite evident that... More

My wife and I recently spent 6 nights at the Merlin Beach Resort. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we loved every minute of it. The service was great, the food was great and the facilities very enjoyable. Ok there's the odd wedding making late night noise, the gym isn't exactly world class and the coffee... More
