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

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.

Lovely staff. All food ordered at the restaurant and via room service was well cooked and balanced. The buffet was good value if you treated it as a three course meal and ate accordingly. Wifi access ...
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 ...

Triple nice
Nice view (beach front room) , nice service, nice room.
Nice resort for those who looking for really relax. The beach view is nice but no swim due to rock beach. Recommend to hire car for convenience.

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.

The resort has everything you need, we had a lovel
Soft beds, good breakfast and 3 pools
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.
