We arrived here after checking out from Dusit Thani in Phuket Laguna, so I may be at times comparing the great luxury and facilities I just experienced at the Dusit.
Merlin is quite central to Patong City (5min in taxi). The resort lobby is huge, but lack lighting. Probably power saving. The check in staff was very friendly. Welcomed by a lovely glass of juice and fresh towel. Wi-Fi is free but make sure you ask for more than one access if there are more than one equipment that will be accessing the internet.
We were guided to our room, which was magnificent, modern. We booked the Premium Beachfront room, which was facing the beach, you could hear the waves crashing onto the rocks from our room.
The spa is very well priced. You will find that the prices are similar to what it is in Patong city.
Not very impressed with the Thai restaurant as it was bit overpriced.
Breakfast Bar is very average, huge setup but it lacks the professional staff. The food was at times over cooked/burnt. If you are a cappuccino person then you will be disappointed that you will get your coffee from the Nescafe machine...not nice. I ordered the omelette and it took forever. The staff member seemed so disinterested in his job and was more busy chatting to his fellow colleague. Overall breakfast wasn't that great.
Let’s see what the second day hold for us. Keep you posted.
