We have stayed at Merlin Beach resort 5 times. I have been coming here since I was younger. The best hotel, in a great location. We enjoy staying a bit out of town for peace and quiet, and the free shuttle takes us right into the heart of patong! The staff are so friendly, and the rooms are great. No... More

We have just spent a week at the Merlin and had a fantastic time, we've been to Phuket 3 times now and think this hotel is the best we've stayed in! The staff are very friendly and helpful in every way, the pools are beautiful and clean as are the grounds. The only negative I can comment on is the... More

On our fourth trip to patong thought we would try a different resort, pleasantly surprised by this one. Although we did make allowances as it was still having renovations to the reception and some of the rooms so at times was a little noisy, but the staff and atmosphere more than made up for this. We stayed in a pool... More

The countdown is on, 4 weeks to go for our return back to Merlin. looking forward to happy hour in the sunset bar and watching the passing parade. Staff are very friendly and always willing to help, communication is hard at times, but patience and more detail and everything is sorted out.

We stayed here for a week and absolutely enjoyed it. The location is perfect, it is about 5 minutes tuk tuk ride from Patong which suited us as we didn't want to be amongst the crazy Patong life however the resort does offer free shuttles which run on a schedule. There is so much to do at the resort. There... More

Just came back from 4D3N stay with our boy. Location: Way out from Patong. Really NOTHING else there beside the hotel. It has a private beach, but the beach is not suitable for swimming. It has lots of corals and the wind is strong most of the time. Having said so, children will like it, lots of crabs, hermit crabs,... More

We had 7 nights here in mid-July and although it was cloudy for a few days and we had torrential rain on one day, it remained warm enough for T Shirts and shorts every day. The evenings were cooler but mainly due to the air conditioning not the weather conditions. Although I have travelled all over the world, I had... More
