We had a wonderful first visit to Thailand. Given that we were lucky to be there at all so soon after an op and only given permission to fly the day before we travelled, our all inclusive stay at The Merlin Hotel was perfect for us and provided all the R&R we needed. A long but excellent direct flight from...

The pools are great and it was wonderful to walk out of your room and get straight in to the...

Spent a week here as part of a two centre holiday and it was everything we wanted, total relaxation. Staff were friendly and attentive, room was very spacious and clean, our balcony looked out onto one of the swim up pools ( we were above ) and it was like sitting in your own forest with a waterfall.

We really enjoyed our to be get here. Great room and facilitate, liked the feel of the resort and how they have tried to combine the rain forest into the beach. They seemed to have thought of everything we may need during our stay. We had B&B which was well stocked, and found enough local eateries in the resort and...

This was our 2nd visit to this fantastic hotel, apart from the location and quality of the hotel it is the people that work here that have pulled us back for a return visit. All the staff here are so friendly and it's great if you turn up with the mindset of interaction and try to learn a little Thai...
