Large resort hotel set right on the beach. 100 rooms, but plenty of outdoor space, so you're not packed together. Stayed for 2 weeks in the cheapest room - good size with a King bed, decent balcony and bath/shower combo. Plenty to do at the hotel - small gym, pool table, ping pong, table footie, yoga, bowls and plenty of... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 weeks from 5th Nov and had an amazing time. We opted for a pool access room which made our stay extra special. The grounds are lovely and there was no problem getting a sunbed with some shade either at one of the pools or on the grassy area near the beach. (no... More

Arrived on the 4th November for our two week honeymoon. We had a spectacular time here at the Merlin, it surpassed our expectations. The location was great for us, a little further from the town than some other hotels but there is a free shuttle service to town every day should you wish to explore and shop. The breakfast and...

It,s right on the beach too. The staff are very helpful and we received a warm welcome and an upgrade to a pool room on arrival. The rooms... More

I came here with friend and it's a lovely, quiet relaxed hotel and resort. The resort has a jungle feel to it as its surrounded by trees with soothing exotic animal noises coming from them! The hotel is beautiful and kept pristinely clean. There's a choice of pools to lounge around and it's right next to the beach. Our room... More

Great hotel. Beautifully situated, right at the beach with nice gardens and pools. Little "town" (street with restaurants, bars and shops) nearby (5 min. walk). Good starting point for excursions to Ko Yao Noi, Ko Yao Yai, Phi Phi Islands or even Khao Sok National Park.
