My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and were quite impressed. The room was great with a very comfy queen bed, however the single was lumpy as there was no mattress cover but a quick ask with housekeeping and one was on there in 10 minutes. The check-in process was pleasant with refresher towels and drinks given to us on arrival. One thing that is annoying is the 1000 baht deposit per night of your stay, for my friend and I this really impacted our budget because we had to get more money then when we left on the last day we had this baht we didn't need but we could've used the days we were there. The atmosphere of the lobby is lovely, with a band a night time. The 3 pools were amazing and relaxing, very beautiful. The breakfast buffet was great and the only place we stayed where they made poached eggs. The bathroom was fantastic, a hot shower, plenty of space and great finishings. The hotel backs onto the beach so you just cross the road and you're there. Read less

we arrived at the hotel and immediately released we were bang in the middle of the tourist area which means lots of food and shopping. Travelled with my 18 month old and husband and we all loved the tropical feel to it. lots of little pools along the hotel grounds. The room was beautiful. Breakfast was lovely everyday but sadly as Muslim travellers there weren't much of a choice for us but they did have a few veggie items which was fine as we weren't big breakfast eaters. we walked everywhere everyday only because everything was so close. The beach was directly behind the hotel and we only went once as there is only so much you can do with a baby. Hotel did amazing meal deals where the more nights you eat at their restaurant the bigger the discount. Definitely recommend this hotel and I wold love to go back. Read less

Stayed for a week as a couple. As with hotels in this region it is immaculate and the staff are very polite. It is a sprawling hotel with 3 pools and lots of restaurants. It is used by nationalities from all over the world. The food at breakfast was ok but it must be difficult to cater for so many different cultures and tastes. The pool side bar… Read more
Stayed for a week as a couple. As with hotels in this region it is immaculate and the staff are very polite. It is a sprawling hotel with 3 pools and lots of restaurants. It is used by nationalities from all over the world. The food at breakfast was ok but it must be difficult to cater for so many different cultures and tastes. The pool side bar is reasonably priced and the food was good. We ate in the restaurant once and it again ok. The room and cleaning set up is exceptional. The pools are well maintained and there are no problems getting a bed or a towel from the wise cracking towel man! Our biggest gripe was that my Thai isn’t very good and nearly all the staff struggled with basic English. I appreciate when in Rome and all that but a simple drinks order was lots of pointing at menus that invariably led to the wrong order, even the receptionists who were all very helpful, struggled to understand any point you were making.

Started looking to book in dec with my 2 daughters viewed karon and kata and khao lak as i didnt want taxis at night and to be far out i chose merlin for its central location and so glad i made this choice . Arrived 6th feb at 10am and had to wait till 1 for our room .had room 5205 pool view. The hotel is great for location to everything . Booked our trips outside beach side next to minimart called shanti tours in the glass box. She did us elephant sanctuary 2300 and phi phi at 2200. Street food market is opposite hard rock cafe and also free paradise beach pick up from here. We used hotel taxi to big buddha and karon and both good prices. We ate in pool bar twice and food was very good both times .the hotel is very clean and big .the drinks in room are expensive we didnt use . Breakfast was nice for us as were basic eaters in a morning .the pools were nice and big hard to get a bed after 11 .they decorated my daughters bed and got her a cake for her birthday which was lovely made it very special for her. We had a fantastic time with no problems at all . Got my deposit back no problems. We ate on beach road every night (indian spice )was nice and cheap with meals at 80 baht or 90 baht. My curtains did smell of smoke and thats all i could smell in bed .had the best week ever in this hotel and will defo use again .went to bangla rd once at 9pm for a nosy and turned back half way down wasnt nice. Dont hesitate to book this if you want a central location .fab hotel thankyou merlin i will be back . Read less
