The primary reason for booking this as my accommodation spot is due to a group of friends who were staying here too (one celebrating a birthday). I don’t think, normally that I would choose this as a place to stay – I’m not one for resorts, and location wise it’s slightly isolated from the main area (around Patong Beach –... More

Breakfast a bit ordinary & limited. Showers leaked in all 5 rooms our family stayed. Also we had 3 in our room but only got 2 towels when our room was cleaned. When we rang housekeeping they told us there were only 2 in our room. On checkout they tried to charge us for extra towels.

We stayed here for a friend's wedding in October. The hotel itself is pretty big, three pools, a range of restaurants and it's own private beach. This hotel was fine, but it wasn't the best hotel of our three week trip. Positives: Nice room, large firm beds, clean resort, provision of an iron and ironing board, mineral water daily, friendly...

Merlin Beach Resort felt very different from our experience last year. It was difficult to find the lovely relaxing atmosphere that we had previously experienced. We found the resort to be extremely busy, with inconsiderate guests and overall lacking from previous experience. Our room was changed three times in two days, making it difficult to settle in and relax. The... More

Me and friends stayed in Merlin 4 days for business event. I have a beach view room which ok, you may ask for room which direct pool access if swimming is your daily routine. They also have cheap massage(When the resort spa was fully booked) and laundry service near beach.

The food pool staff and rooms are great. The only negative is unless your happy to stay at the resort it's great but it's about a 15minute tuk tuk ride from Patong beach and action. We did this almost twice a day for seven days. It's cheap in a tuk tuk but it adds up.

This is our 3rd visit to this resort, although we have stayed in nicer hotels, this is a great one for families. I wouldn't recommend for quiet romantic getaway, but families are well catered for. 3 great pools,swim up bar, beach ( not great for swimming- rocky) but awesome view, and just far enough out of main patong beach that...
