We were in desperate need of a break after what had been a long year - Merlin Beach resort answered our call! Great pools offered the perfect location to do no more than recharge! Beach location (although very rocky and not ideal for young swimmers) was perfect for snorkelling. Pool bar was a great way to rehydrate - although pool... More

Just back from 2 weeks at the Merlin Beach Resort, on arrival upgraded to the swim up pool room which although expensive was definitely worth it and made the stay so much more enjoyable. All staff very friendly and choice of restaurants was good for trying something different every few night alongside the various themed buffets on difference nights. The... More

Had a fairly enjoyable week at the Merlin, Rooms were nice but felt other areas of the hotel especially the pool area were a bit tired and grubby looking. Location is a bit out of the way so I would probably choose somewhere closer if I return to Phuket. Had a bit of an issue checking out over a laundry... More

Stayed 8 or 9 times and love the hotel. Hotel food is over the top on price though so we only have a light lunch there and that's still expensive as are drinks so fill your fridge from local shops !! Shuttle bus to patong really needs to run every hour as taxi return to patong each day isn't cheap.... More

Arrived with high expectations but this soon changed. Given the wrong room, changed upon request. Encouraged to order wine prior to NYE with 15% discount only to find the next day they had added 15% on to the price. When sat at our table, wine did not arrive, asked 3 times and finally received it after we had eaten. Waitress... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay with us. Indeed, a disappointing review but more so for us to realize you did not enjoy your stay with us as planned. However, thanks for your kind comments on the New Year Eve Gala and the services - it is great to hear no... More

Visited Phuket in December 2014 with a group of friends and chose this resort because of its reviews, location and overall ratings. Was actually disappointed to find actually a very tired resort that obviously once was the place to be. Firstly the beach is unswimmable though often quite great to look at when the tide hasnt receded, so any advert... More

If you're looking for a bit of luxury, this isn't it. The premises and rooms are tidy and well kept, the pools are great and the reef in front of the hotel is lovely for snorkeling, but the service, oh dear. It may take 15 min to get your drinks but another 30-40 min for the food to arrive, or... More

This was our fourth stay at this hotel over a 10 year period, this time we brought along our son, wife and grand children. It lived up to all the expectations we had for our holiday and was absolutely perfect for children, with a children's club which kept them entertained every day, making the holiday less stressful for all of...

Have just come back from this hotel having spent Christmas with my husband and children 8 and 11 years old. The hotel pools were fantastic and having the private beach was a bonus however this was all rocks but great for those who like to snorkel and when the tide goes out the rock pooling is great fun for all....
