We have just spent 10 nights at this hotel and I don't think I can find much to fault. Our room was lovely, on a top floor as we had requested, and as it was at the back of the hotel it was very quiet.The staff were lovely and kept the place spotless. The breakfasts were excellent, probably the best that we have come across in recent years.We had one lunch at the hotel that was ok but eating out was nicer and cheaper.All the restaurants outside were very good and cheap, apart from the Italian, where I was ill after a meal there. I then stuck to Thai food and was fine the whole time. As mentioned by others the hotel guest were mostly Germans, we did not hear another English voice while we were there, and they did like to get their towels on the sun loungers early in the morning! However, we tended to stay by one of the pools at the rear of the hotel and this was lovely and peaceful, with at most 10 people there. The beach was beautiful and I would highly recommend having a massage there overlooking the ocean. Heaven! We absolutely loved our time at the Merlin and would not hesitate to recommend it.
