Huge property, great swimming pools

Swimming Pool
We stayed here for 2 nights during our Honeymoon trip to Thailand.It is an excellent resort. However, it is located uphill after the Patong Beach ends. Reaching here to an fro Patong Beach can be cumbersome. It is best to hire a bike from Patong Beach during the stay. The beach of the Hotel is pathetic. The best part of the Hotel is its swimming pool. There are 3 swimming pools and all are interconnected with each other through a lazy river.

Great Resort

Best place for kids
The hotel is located away from all the happening place. The resort has nice pool that helps keep the children busy while you can relax beside the beach. How ever the beach has rocks and no water sport activity is possible. The comfort level is high. A shuttle is available that take you to the patong beach area and bangla road. all you need to do is co-ordinate the time. Hotel has nice restaurants and the breakfast is very good. A 2 night trip was not enough will come again. The have music at the lobby at night and they sounded great.

Fantastic hotel all round, pricey though!

Three pools, private beach, total serenity!
Would definitely recommend to others! Particularly families who are looking for a resort atmosphere with kids clubs and play facilities.
Shopping Tip: The further along Patong Beach you go, the cheaper they prices will be!

Perfect romantic location.

Private beach and superb rooms and staff.
Very romantic property. Excellent diving just offshore. Top notch restaurants that will leave you wanting to return the following night.
Shopping Tip: Shop in Patong and relax afterwards by the pool and take a swim over to the pool bar. Very relaxing.

Great Resort

Beautiful setting, great pools, wonderful food
the merlin beach resort was absolutely gorgeous. the pools were sparkling, and included a swim-up bar. the children's pool was full of activities and safe play areas. the beach area was clean and had amazing snorkeling. the food at the resort was delicious and we were never disappointed.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The snorkeling equipment rental was not well-advertised. Check with one of the massage places on the beach and they can rent you equipment for about $3

Nice hotel but lacked the Thai hospitality

Kids pool and water slide for the little ones
Room is nice and big. Amazing swimming pools that cover the property. Breakfast is totally European and lacked the Thai touch. The resort is customized to Australians and more than 90% of the guests were from Aus. The resort is very commercial and did not give me the warmth I have experienced in other Thailand properties. Food was below average so not recommended to eat in the hotel.
Restaurant Tip: Go to Coco-Nut Thai Seafood restaurant which does the best prawns in red curry sauce.
