what can I add to the already great reviews this hotel has .... positioned just far enough to be away from the hustle & bustle , but close enough to nip into patong ...tuk tuk only 30 baht ... food great at the hard rock and look up No 6 restaurant , then ask to go to their "other" place .... brill food , view and they take you back too , all for £22 for 4 pers ...
phi phi island , james bond island and elephant trekking ....must do .... don't bother with fantasia , over priced , over rated and cruel....in my opinion

Room Tip: all rooms overlook pool or ocean and are fine

My partner and I have recently stayed at the merlin for my 21st birthday.
We had done our research about it before our stay, and the images we had seen prior to staying looked amazing .. when we had arrived the resort was to good to be true! Its simply beautiful with 3 pools , swim up bar over 5 resturants in the resort.
At the start of our stay we were eating at the resort until we realized its way to expensive compared to this beautiful resturant we had found cross from patong beach called la roma.
The service here is great, not many of the workers speak fluent english so sometimes its hard to understand ..
the only thing that had upset us about our stay is in our rooms we have a tv, we were aware that we had
To pay to watch movies, my partner and I had played music off the tv and as we went to check out reception said we had owed them 50 bht for playing the juke box which was never mentioned upon arrival.
The taxi rides to the main part of patong is a rip off though there is a friendly taxi service cross the road (ask for mr bang)
other then that everything was perfect we love it here so many tourists and Australians so it made us feel we were at home.
Highly recommend this place , just be aware of costs as they will charge you for the simplest things.
Hope this helped with your decision about your stay :)

This is great resort for either couples or families - lots of pools and activities - even got my partner to join in with aqua fitness class. Great service and quick to make up your room if you put your sign out. As it is a bit isolated can't just walk out the resort and grab something to eat up the road, however meals reasonably priced and get discount card ranging from 10-30% off the more you dined in. The beach is private and water is calm, however has a coral base so either wear aqua shoes or tread carefully - Ok at high tide and can hire snorkel etc. from vendors on the beach - easier to see the fish swimming in the coral. Vendors on the beach stay in their own sectors and all the same price - went to the one directly on the beach owned by a family and both my partner and I have a couple of massages - about $12- for an hour (300 bt). Although the motel is about a 10min trip from the main sector of Patong they do have a couple of shuttles going each day or just get a taxi for 300bt when want to go to and from the hotel. Have to say that after spending a few hours in Patong it was wonderful to come back to the hotel and breath all the fresh air and enjoy the peace and quiet. Having stayed in other places in Bali and Fiji over the years would recommend this one for those that aren't after a lot of night life but want a couples retreat or have younger children.

Room Tip: If you like to have a quiet nap in the afternoon then having a waterfall outside of your door probably isn't for you. Request a room away from this or if like the 'white' noise then not a problem

Merlin Beach was great. Everything from front desk to house keeping, service was amazing.
Having 3 different pools was great, pictures definitely do the place justice as everything you see online is exactly what you get.
Swim-up bar is great, having a drink or food whenever you want and being able to charge back to the room is a great idea.
Happy hour at the bar inside the hotel lobby near reception is what I would say to anyone who asked for advice! There are 2 happy hours (from memory 5-7 and then 9-11) which make the drinks dirt cheap! And they are more than happy for you to order numerous so that you can have happy hour.
Recommend this place to anybody looking a great hotel in a great location away from the hustle and bustle of Patong Beach strip.
Will definitely be back!!!
