This is comfortable resort with everything on site - don't need to leave the hotel, can just stay all the time here but also not far from Patong center for shopping. All staff always smiling and happy. Good Thai service.

Stayed: June 2013, travelled with friends

Just spent 2 weeks at Merlin with young son and parents. No complaints. We only left resort three times to venture into Patong. Very relaxing and comfortable resort. Massage on the beach recommended as is the 'anderman breeze' cocktail!!! Would definitely go back.

We have just returned from 2 great weeks at this resort. We stayed with 2 other families with a total of six Adults, three fifteen year old boys and three thirteen year old boys. We arrived very early 1.30am on a Saturday morning thinking that our room requests would be all wrong and we couldnt be more wrong, they had everything as we asked, five rooms all together with the adjoining rooms as requested.
The resort had plenty to keep our 6 teenage boys busy which allowed us adults plenty of time to relax and enjoy the three pools and plentiful bars. The pool bar was great with great staff with great attitudes. The restaurants were very good as well and not as pricey as you would expect at a resort like this. The Thai restaurant was excellent with creatively presented dishes. We can recommend the Little Tiger restaurant just up the hill from the beach which has everything from great Thai dishes to western food and not priced too bad.
It is only a 5 minute trip into Patong on either the free hotel bus or grab a Taxi which only costs 300 Baht ($10 Aus). As there was 12 of us we mostly took a min van into Patong and it still only cost 300 Baht.
The staff were all very friendly and helpfull and attended to all of our requests as quickly as possible.
We all had delux rooms which were large, comfortable and very clean.
We would recommend this resort to families and singles as it has all required to keep everyone happy and we will definately be going back.

Room Tip: We were in room 3206 which had great access to everything

This resort was wonderful. Staff very friendly and helpful, happy to have a laugh with us and very quick with any requests. Our room was clean and comfortable, gorgeous veiw of the ocean. Very good variety with the included buffet breakfast, we also tried the Thai and Italian restaurants and found both to be reasonably priced with good food and good service. I wish I had done more homework and had my hair done at the resort as the prices were good. My friends enjoyed full massages and I had a pedicure and eyebrow wax - all very clean and professional and cheap! Loved the pools and swim up bar, enjoyed the live music and the happy hours for cheap cocktails. It was close to the hustle and bustle of Patong but far enough away to be quiet and relaxing. My friends and I went there for a wedding and this was absolutely beautiful - a majical location.

Room Tip: We stayed in the beachfront room which had a gorgeous veiw, but if I go again, I would definately go...

Merlin beach resort is located in Patong area of Phuket, it is a bit far from city center but there are scheduled shuttle buses for your easy access to downtown. The atmosphere is very nice and relaxing, and i can recommend this hotel for people who want to travel with their children and family. The staff are very polite and helpful and many of them can speak in English. There are 2 good quality restaurants (a bit expensive) and a bar, and also live music in lobby every night. There are 3 large and very beautiful pools which are connected to each other. The hotel also has a private beach,but during my stay there were no facilities (beds,...) beside the beach and we could not swim there. There is a also a spa by the shore.
The hotel rooms are large, very clean, and beautifully styled. Some of them have beach view and many of them have pool view and a nice cozy balcony. You have safety box, refrigerator, good quality TV and a large bathroom with both shower and tub (but don't forget to bring your hair drier if you need it). The sleep quality is very good, only the birds are surprisingly singing loudly through the night (but i liked it very much!).
Finally there is a tip, there is another merlin beach hotel in another area of Phuket. Do not confuse it with merlin beach resort while booking!

Room Tip: I had a Superior room, and i was very satisfied with it.

Returned for the second stay at merlin, this time with our two children and sister and brother in law, which was their first time in Thailand.
Personalized welcome our family name on board and received flower necklas which my 8 yr old daughter loved.
Just as we remembered our room overlooking the pool and beach. We feel at home here and know we are safe and secure in a resort away from the busy streets. But not too far by tuk tuk to patong and markets. Shame our 12 yr old son is classed as an adult makes our holidays more expensive now as we don't see him as an adult. even tho he is taller than me!!
Room still big enough for us the beds are huge and lucky kids don't mind sharing with family.
Pools just as we remembered. Huge and great pool bar. Breakfasts yummy and lovely relaxed seating both indoors in cool or alfresco overlooking pool.
We hope to return again in April 14.
We love it here no issues in recommending this resort .

My wife and I spent 3 days here and were very impressed. The price was right, food not too expensive and good quality. Nightly entertainment in the lounge meant that you didn't have to go out to find something to do - just sit back, listen to live music and drink. The pools were clean and lots of room. The spa was very good, with reasonably priced treatments. We did body scrubs and massages, both were very enjoyable.

The hotel is good enough that we spent all three days on the site - without feeling the need to venture into nearby Patong.
