“The Boys in Patong”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

I would not hesitate to recommend this resort, three huge pools, we had a pool access room,
(walk in steps)and a quiet pool and spa. Rooms excellent standard every day. Breakfast had so much - no need to eat lunch, huge property. 5min trip to patong or 250Bht. Personally the Tiger Restuarant on hill is a Must.(like im the only one who has tried it). Another nice feature was the Foyer(evening Drinks). Attentive staff and great room service.

We finished our Thailand Holiday with 3 nights at the Merlin Beach Resort in a Pool access room. The room was delightful exactly as advertised. Staff were fantastic - helpful and warm.
Overall experience was great. Recommend you try Hotel spa. If wanting a local massage do not go to the one direclty out the front of the hotel to the left. Go to the one up the hill on the left. The nearest local massage was not great. Perfect location overall. Great holiday spot for couples and families. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: Pool access room was great.

My partner and I had our 4th time here and I enjoyed it as much as the first. Again we took a pool access room but would not recommend coming in May, rainy season. It rained the first four days of the trip. As it was our fourth visit we were given perks such as free cooking class and free buffet dinner etc. The pool access rooms have been redone and designed with a modern edge. Flat screens and no more entertainment unit which gives a feeling of more space. The bathrooms could do with an overhaul. The breakfast has remained the same high quality. The staff during low season seemed to be trainees so service was not up to its normal quality. The buffet dinner is delicious but needs to be watched a bit more carefully as insects has managed their way into the sauces and dressings. We enjoy the happy hour with the band in the lobby. The internet was a bother as it was in and out and had to call the engineer to the room about 3 times to get it to work. The TV reception was also a hindrance as the connection could not be made to several of the advertised channels and for two days over a weekend the movie channels were not available at all. It was two days of rain so we needed the movies to watch. I would return to Merlin but will have to convince my partner due to all the technical foul ups. Three huge pools with one being for families with children which leaves the main pool with pool bar and pool access pool for mostly adults. The pool access area is quiet with little cafe and bar staff. The pool is circular with an overgrown island in the middle with jacuzzi. The pool water is cool and refreshing with a 3 story waterfall at one side. The loungers were on the island across from your patio. It was great to come back from breakfast and throw on your swimsuit and swim across to the island and grab your ipad and a lounger with a cocktail by 11.30. Little Tiger restaurant on the cliff overlooking the beach has great food and low cost. The spring rolls were amazing. You have to climb some step to get up to it but well worth it.

We could not fault this resort. Stayed in a premium beachview room and spent a lot of time on balcony enjoying the peaceful view. Beds and pillow were so comfortable, room and bathroom spacious and air conditioning a life saver. Rooms cleaned to an excellent standard every day. Breakfast had so much variety every day - no need to eat lunch.
Little Tiger Restaurant well worth the short cliff climb for a meal. Also if you cross the road and head up the small hill to the left Tri Trang Beach is easily accessible. Nice morning walk and had the whole beach to myself.
The free shuttle buses were more than adequate, especially when we worked out nothing much happens in Patong before 11.00am. Plus cheaper option is to get taxi across the road for 250 baht in to Patong and get shuttle back. Taxis and Tuk Tuks back to the resort are 300 baht.
The only warning I would have is when it rains the corridors get very wet and slippery and could be a concern for older people.

Room Tip: Premium Beach - had it all

This was our second time at Merlin Beach resort and once again it was great. Last time we were there was 2006 and it was just as good this time. The service and pleasant staff were once again fantastic and we couldn't ask for anymore. It is close enough but far enough away from the busy Patong. I would not hesitate to recommend this resort once again.

Room Tip: go for a deluxe room just a bit bigger.
