Great location, staff friendly, rooms were clean

Very clean & location
It is a large hotel but it was very quiet and it did not feel crowded, very well set out.
Travel tip: Take the shuttle bus into Potong it's free

loved the hotel poor people skills from staff

amentities pool , lawn , beach
i just had 4 nights 5 days at merlin beach . absolutely loved the hotel excellent rooms beautiful pool , lawn and beach . was welcomed with smiles and a drink which made me feel wanted. as the days went by i found the floor staff ( pool bar staff waiters and waitresses to have very poor people skills no smiles no personality and not very helpfull) i had just done a week prior at impiana and found every staff member their to be friendly bubbly and very helpfull so overall loved the resort and facilities and the welcomeing staff but for the rest of the stay did not find the tha bar or food staff to be friendly helpfull or have a personality which was a big dissapointment .
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: elephant trek , buggy threw the jungle and diving the islands

Great location lovely hotel rooms very comfortable

pools awesome pillows in room so soft bed comfortable. great views. breakfast indulging.
I enjoyed my stay at Merlin Beach Resort. Breakfast food selection each day was amazing. Amenities were first class, pools amazing. Staff are very friendly however at times they are a little too relaxed and service could be quicker and with more of a smile from some a few male staff members. Communication between staff could improve at times resulting in less frustration shown towards guests. Otherwise I cannot fault, and would highly recommend this resort to other travellers for sure. Look forward to returning in 2012.
Hotel Feature Tip: Check out staff preparing for a wedding, which was almost a daily event. They are efficient and well equipped. Very romantic place to have a wedding, spectacular location by secluded beach with views of sunset and the horizon.

Great setting and good size rooms

Nice pools, good size rooms,great location
nice big spacious hotel.(our second stay) out of hustle and bustle of patong but close enough to be there in 5 mins. good breakfasts and freindly staff. nice rooms with cold aircons.
Travel tip: If you want to be out of Patong (a bit quieter) but have easy access to the shopping and nightlife there Merlin Beach is perfect.

Clean rooms and facilities

Good rooms and swmming pools
i enjoyed my stay - the rooms were good, serviced daily and the swimming pools and pool bar areas were enjoyable. the front desk and luggage counter staff were polite but did appear to struggle with conversations in english quite a lot of the time which often caused confusion when trying to make arrangements. the housekeeping staff and some of the bar staff were very welcoming, friendly and communicated well.
