The resort and grounds were very elegant with extensive gardens and water features. Our suite was located far away from the hotel lobby and close to the main swimming pool at the beach area. The room was very spacious and modern with many amenities for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was also quite elegant and large with an enclosed glass wall shower and bath tub. A fine restaurant on the hotel grounds was only a short walk from our room. Many fine foods at reasonable prices. We stayed 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our experience ! However, I was quite surprised that the bathroom toilet did not have a sprayer for cleaning.

The resort is located on the beach with a lot of trees. The resort promote sustainable environment while to do several "green" activities, especially for wildlifes. The resort is big and several low-rised buildings and 4 swiming pools and 2 large waterfalls. We stay at the nature wing near waterfall. The room is comfy with wood floor and good bed. All staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good. All other meals are at reasonable price and big portion. It's seems to be good family hotels with activities for kids with "Green" activities, kids pool with slider and large playground.

We returned to the Merlin again this year( our 4th visit. ) We always said we would not return to the same place twice as it's a big world out there and so much to see but this hotel is amazing and as usual were not disappointed. It really is the best, the most beautiful surroundings, comfortable rooms, fantastic pools and fabulous food. The staff are all outstanding going above and beyond to ensure that the guests have a wonderful stay. We are so lucky to have been able to have our holiday as the lock down started while we were away. Some restrictions had started in Thailand by the time we left but the very high standards of the hotel remained at all times. We hope everyone is keeping safe and well. Be warned we have booked to return next year and are already counting the days.
