The Merlin Beach Resort offers a real taste of Thailand, with tropical pools, cookery classes, and a restaurant serving traditional local dishes.
This hotel is set in tropical gardens and anchored alongside Tri Trang Beach, a quiet stretch of white sand. It’s a peaceful spot, but you’re less than a 10-minute taxi ride from the nightlife in Patong.
In terms of what there is to do here, families well are catered for, thanks to 3 pools and a packed activities programme.

Relaxation in a fabulous environment
We loved staying in this hotel for seven nights. Everything is available and it is also easy to take a cab to Patong. The shuttle bus doesn't go often enough and tends to be very full. The hotel is clean, staff friendly, plenty of activities available, food is great and available from several restaurants so you get some variety of venues. We particularly liked having breakfast at the beach grill - even though it is buffet style, staff take your order and deliver eggs, coffee etc. Great to see families enjoying their stay. No disruptive elements, just a great time with friendly vibes. The hotel is huge, so plenty of areas to explore. The rooms surrounding the enclosed pool could be quite hot as the breeze might not get in there. We overlooked the family pool and that was worth the extra cost. Family pool is extensive and also has a deep end. From there you can go through to the adjoining main pool with a swim up bar without leaving the water.More
This is the third time stay over the past 10 years. Just a nice relaxing place away from Patong beach. The resort has changed a bit since the last visit. This resort has its own beach front with a coral reef, beech massage and a nice restaurant on the hill. Although these businesses ain't part of the resort it makes it for an enjoyable stay. It runs a bus service to town a few times a day and back. It used to be free but they now charge for the later service in the afternoon to town, all return services are fee. The drink prices are a bit on the high end but have 2/1 happy hour from 4-7 every day. Your stay here shouldn't disappoint. Good selection for breakfast and service. This resort is great for families with kids and would highly recommend. So take a break and enjoy.👍😊🍕🥃More
I have to give a big applause to this resort and their team. We forgot to take out our money from safe box, and not realized until we head back to Singapore! We immediately called the resort and they told us that cleaning lady found our money and gave to hotel manager! Special thanks to Pai and Pen for taking care of this special case for me. They counts the money and converts into Thai currency and then transfer to our oversea bank account! This resort act in a professional way and makes me want to come back for their special service. We are platinum elite member and treat very well in this resort. We got an upgrade to beach access room。Resort is very big and good for family。More
A great family summer holiday hotel
Marriott Merlin Beach is a nice family friendly hotel located aome 5 km away from Patong Beach in Phuket. The hotel features three large swimming pools with water slides plus a small pool for toddlers with some water games. There are lots of activities to join for children and grown up's throughout the day. The hotel is secluded which offers some quietness away from the crowded Patong beach night life. The hotel offer a regular bus shuttle to drop off and pick up guests from Patong. Breakfast was very diversified offering Asian and international options. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful whenever asked with any service. The room AC was very powerful but noisy when switched on full blast. TV included a variety of english speaking channels and the internet speed was very good ll over the hotel. I didn't use the spa facility as I found it to be way over priced compared to other massage saloons in Patong offering equally good services.More
Couldn't be better
Just had an amazing stay at the Marriot Merlin Hotel. The staff could not do enough for us, very friendly and helpful. Special thank you to Natty, on the front desk who went out of her way to find a screwdriver so I could fix the handle on my suitcase. Kelly, who remembered our names and drink preferences every morning at breakfast and ALL the staff in the three restaurants who provided excellent service, even at peak times. The Merchant Restaurant which by the way had the best buffet I have ever seen for variety. The views of the pools and the beach were an added bonus. Loved the three pools, and even though the resort was fully booked they did not feel overcrowded and there was still room for everyone. Great to see families taking advantage of the children,s activities within the complex. A thank you to staff would not be complete without mentioning bar staff and staff at the front who secured our taxis. Housekeeping made up our room daily discreetly, quickly and without a fuss. Lots of extra touches like a towel animal on the bed everyday and charging points for USB devises. We had a great holiday in Phuket and a lot to do with that was the exceptional standard of the resort. More
