Merlin is a comfortable hotel located in a beautiful Khao Lak South beach. Its not 5* luxury but decent 4* with very good rooms and facilities. It has some 5-6 pools located in the vast gardens to choose from. The hotel are is so wide there is plenty of room and peace if you like. Beach is good to swim despite some rocks that come visible in the low tide.
The rooms had probably the best working airconditioning I have experienced in Thai hotels. You could really control it from the high tech remote system along your bed.
Breakfast had a very good selection of hot dishes, that varied each morning. Only a bit limited selection of fruit juices. The Andaman thai dinner buffet we participated was extremely good.
The restaurants at the village nearby where all not that good which was a bit surprise (a one called Bamboo was very bad, do not go there, but Peter's Bar & Rest had very good sea food). Better to take a cab to Khao Lak city for a better dinner!
Service ok, but nothing special.
