We recently returned from our 18th visit to the Mermaid - and were a little apprehensive as to what we would find given that the hotel underwent major renovations to all the guest rooms mid 2016 and has also had a number of staff changes. Overall, things went well. All the guest rooms have been extended and the bathrooms have...

How this hotel only rates a three star rating in the Hays & Jarvis brochure I'll never know? Probably because it hasn't got 100's of rooms and six pools. The Mermaid is a small 80+ rooms on 3 floors with a very friendly and dedicated workforce. From the ground workers and maintenance staff to the management and General Manager you...

We stayed at the Mermaid over Christmas. We have been before and really enjoyed it so we went back again. The staff were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Everyone is friendly and cheerful. The upgrade they have done is good and improves the rooms. The food was excellent and there is always plenty of choice. Was sad to...

We went for a family holiday over Christmas in 2015, and returned last year it was just amazing. The rooms and the pool are great and it's in a great location. But best of all are the staff. So friendly, helpful and genuine. Particularly Rajith in the restaurant team who made my family feel extremely well looked after. If you're...

We last stayed at the Mermaid some 9 years ago & on this occasion it was just as wonderful as we remember. The hotel and grounds are very well maintained, situated on a beautiful beach, and staffed by extremely friendly & helpful locals. There is a beautiful, very large pool, never any problems getting a sunbed, and of course the...

Just returned after third visit. Staff excellent as always but very much understaffed and under pressure and many now leaving. It is nice to return to a smaller friendly hotel with staff that you know. However, times seem to be changing and there is now a much larger influx of eastern European visitors whose culture is very different and has...

We have just returned from the Mermaid Hotel and after reading the other reviews cannot believe that no one mentioned about the noisy trains that run all day outside the hotel. We looked forward to going on the beach and were shocked to see all the stray dogs and their mess on the beach. The staff were amazing and looked...

I would say that Hotel Mermaid & Club is a real nice place. The closeness to the beach is fantastic and the staff is great. There were never any problem if you needed help. Opali made cleaning of my room and making the bed with flowers to a great extent. Jagath in the lobby area was service minded and friendly....
