It was my second time in Thailand. This was the first time I stayed at this Resort. It was always clean and the staff were always helpful. It would be great if the staff could all understand English. But I loved the Resort! Everything about it was wonderful. I would stay here again.

Just returned from Phuket following 2 weeks at the Merlin Beach Resort. This is the 3rd stay at the MBR and it was the same - beautiful. This time we took our daughter and adult grand daughter and they too had a wonderful time. Resort food and drinks were all reasonably priced and enjoyable. The three pools are magnificent .... More

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

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.
