In the hustle and bustle of the area, the Marriott Merlin Beach provides a nice getaway. On arrival, you are greeted with an open air lobby and local refreshments after the long drive from the airport.

Rooms are nice and equipped well for an older property. The beach is nice to relax and explore, but the pools are more lively and where most hang out.

Restaurant options on site are plentiful from local coffee shop to large buffet for breakfast. Lunch and dinner options include pizza, burgers and Thai cuisine.

Meeting facilities and service support was outstanding!

What a great holiday! Right from the late night check in with cool drinks and towels to check out we were very impressed with this hotel. Staff were attentive and professionally friendly, a really impressive team. From the ladies and gentlemen who attended to our rooms, staff at reception and restaurants, spa, garden and bars. A special mention must go to the staff at the “Wellness” and “Rum Bar” they were absolute gems and made our holiday with you a treat.
We were impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and that there is on going maintenance happening to keep it looking good. We tried most of the restaurants at the resort and found them to be very good. Pizza’s excellent as well as the late night club sandwich, salads at wellness bar for lunch and bar food at Rum Bar with the famous happy hour drinks. Oh did I mention Happy Hours! A Fantastic way for our grown up children and us to spend an afternoon around the spotlessly clean pool and when you have finished happy hours try the upstairs lounge for an evening of wonderful music and dancing. We loved it!such a great touch and under utilized.
We also spent a wonderful couple of hours relaxing at the spa, once again excellent! Professional and clean.
The hotel is well situated just far enough away from town to enjoy the quiet and then take a fun trip in a cab or tuk tuk to town for some excitement.
We’ll be back!

Very nice facility with a great pool. Service is excellent and they have a great coffee place. Perfect for kids. Not too big but has all the right activities. Only comment is they don’t have a lifeguard which is strange for a resort of this size. Location is good as it is close to Patong but still far enough for peace and quiet

Enjoyed the excellent location and beautiful hotel and the layout with the stunning outdoor swimming pools running along the hotel. The buffet breakfast was really scrumptious with a wide range of local and western delights. Enjoyed very much the cultural dances and local thai boxing at the resort.

We went all inclusive not knowing what to find in Phuket and we did right with the hotel all by its self a mile away from Patong and the drinks and meal prices were very expensive.
We were shown to our room by the bell boy who told us how to work the lights and air conditioning how to work the shower and safe were to get towels from really made us welcome. It was strange to have a well stocked fridge that wasn't all inc. The room was lovely had a great sea view and very quiet no. 4426. We ate at all the restaurants they are all very nice,but the Thai Pantry was our fav thanks to Lee and all her staff. in the lobby bar we were made very welcome by Su and her staff. On my wife's birthday we both had a full massage in the spa and were looked after by Khun, Ta, Sri, and Nicky. Mam looked after us at the pool. Thanks to you all. The hotel reserves an area for butterfly's and its worth taking a look the house reef is good for snorkeling were i managed to see my first wild lobster. One last thing you didn't have to get up at the crack of dawn for a sunbed.
