Good family resort
The resort has great pools and is in a good location to visit Patong.
It rained most of the time we were there but the beach was quite rocky and it appeared that it was not a swimming beach.

Friendly staff, great location
Location, big rooms, 3 large pools plenty of room for all guests
This was my second stay at the Merlin. We arrived late. Staff were efficient at checking us in. We loved the location, just a short taxi ride out of the hussle of Patong. Rooms are large and comfortable. Great pools, and plenty of sun lounges for everyone. Great pool bar. Staff spoke English. Staff were friendly. Loved my stay

I felt they could do with a hotel shuttle run later in the evening. You could get a tuk tuk back relatively cheaply but say a 730 or 8pm hotel shuttle from the Patong Merlin would be good. Also some ...

Pleasant and relaxing with great poolside drinks!
Merlin Beach Resort has an amazing complex of swimming pools. With a pool bar that serves fantastic beach drinks - try the Banana Ramada or the Andaman Breeze!
Had a really pleasant stay, except for the occasional mosquitoes. The hotel is old but very well maintained, and we really enjoyed the general affordability of the F&B outlets. The free shuttle bus to Patong was a big plus - being away from the madding crowd with your own private beach and good poolside drinks was pretty much the highlight of our stay. The hotel is pretty popular with families and Australians.

Everything was great at the Merlin beach. The location was a bit quiet and out of the way, however the hotel runs regular shuttle buses to and from Patong. The breakfast was good, a great omlette station. All in all a really nice place.
