    Our room was very large and always clean. In addition to safe, minibar, refrigerator, kettle there was daily free 1 bottle of water per person in the room. Huge bathroom with tub and shower, large bed, flat screen tv (only 1 german channel), air conditioning. Huge windows with a sliding door and access to the balcony. Due to the fliegengitters at the balcony door could one day and night in the door open without gatecrashers welcome to have. We had not a single mosquito in the room! At night it was except a little frog croak amazingly very quiet in the tropical garden. Only in the late afternoon and early morning chirped the huge hear cicadas unbearably loud. A ghost but always after 10-15 minutes past was. Wi-fi is only available for a fee in the room (200 Baht/hours.) In the lobby bar there is free wi-fi. We can only the tip from previous reviews deploy the larger deluxe room and when booking of a room in the new building to exist!

  • Gastronomy
    5.0

    There is a main restaurant and a beach restaurant. The outdoor area is larger than the air-conditioned interior. Thus so it was always a free spot for breakfast in the free one under palms. In the main restaurant there was daily the breakfast buffet. Here is really everything that you need for breakfast. From warm dishes with fresh cold meats, different vegetables, bread, rolls, Croissant, sweets, fruits, cereal, coffee, tea, fresh juices (no angerührtes pulvergesöff ). The two eierstationen there were always freshly prepared omelets, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, soft/hard boiled eggs. Very delicious! Also here everything was always clean and hygienic. Absolutely no complaints. Both the main building and in the beach restaurant there are daily alternating theme buffets instead of (bbq, asian, polynesich, european, etc.). Always with live music and/or dance performances under starlit sky with the sound of. Fantastic. For a total cost 10-12 Euro per person very favorably for rates. Where you can get for the money already so a ambience?! Solely the prices for drinks in the hotel are relatively expensive. (small beer about 3 Euro ) Of course you can à la carte food. No tips necessary! Bill could be written on the room and get paid with the departure.

    With all employees you could communicate very well in english. All the staff in all areas was the plant always extremely friendly and courteous. The daily room cleaning was always very clean. There were daily fresh towels and beach towels. Complaints gave it from us not only. From arrival to departure we were very happy! So it should be.

    The resort has five pools. Great integrated into the area. Children's pool, quiet pool, jacuzzi with waterfalls, stufenbecken, bridges, plants, etc. Oasis relaxation: no animation, annoying entertainers, photographers, disco, music, jet ski, beach vendors. Nothing of the sort. One has really everywhere its absolute peace. Great! There is a well equipped gym and a spa area with various spa treatments, massages etc. Excursions could at the travel agent or the hotel. We booked trips outside and right on the beach massages as about 40% cheaper for the same program.

    The hotel is located in a cul-de-sac in the small village of phang-nga and is just 1 hour drive from phuket airport. Already on the way there you will see the virginity of nature. Green rainforests everywhere on the eye can see. The hotel is right on the beach (so no taxi/bus, no straßenüberquerung or long walk necessary!) The place phang-nga is a small main street with a handful of small restaurants, supermarkets, massage salons, trip offerers and scooter rental. Here there are not more than a handful of boutique hotels and three large resorts like the merlin resort. Shopping and nightlifebegeisterte come here and not at their expense. The next larger town is Khao Lak center and about 8 kilometer away (15 mins away by scooter or taxi). Here there are along the main street very many restaurants, larger supermarkets and a weekly market.

    The hotel is located directly on the South Beach. A small shopping arcade inside it is right in front of the hotel. Excursions could be booked everywhere. I commend mr. Moo directly beside joseafood. To the Khao Lak Center you can take the free shuttle to the hotel. Back one comes with all taxi for 1 50 thb.

We were at the Merlin for the first time and can say that it was a wonderful holiday. We felt very comfortable. The entire staff meets guests' every need to make it a pleasant stay. Always friendly and hard-working. A few leaves in the pool didn't bother us), nevertheless there are enough trees for it to mean that leaves sometimes fall. The food was very tasty and sufficient, the rooms were very large, very clean and very well equipped. We booked trips with Mr Moo - very recommendable, a big thank you. If you are looking for peace, you're ... in the right place at the Merlin! I can only say we'll be back! read hotel review

    It has direct access to the beach. The beach section was the nicest of the adjacent hotels. In the surroundings there are some restaurants and supermarkets for the small purchase, otherwise it was rather quiet and not a place with entertainment/night life or similar with taxi outside of the hotel) one comes to appropriate negotiation for relatively little money everywhere. Khao Lak is no area for shopping. The market in Bang Niang is quite interesting for tourists.

    The hotel lies in a suburb of Khao Lak and that is also super sunday From the hotel one reaches within a few minutes several restaurants and shops.

    We found our rooms to be very tastefully furnished and sufficiently large. Condition seemed relatively new. Apparently was recently painted, as it somehow after color smelled. The furniture was not brand new, but also far from worn. There was a flat screen tv, safe, mini bar, hair dryer, telephone and kettle. A small balcony with seat and trockengelegenheit for towels. However, outside nothing really dry and smelled musty. The beach towels rather not directly smell. Bathroom was large enough and everything was available. Everything was very clean and our maid always good job. At the 3. the ' thickness' blanket out and only with sheets without air conditioning system slept, since the air conditioning directly on the bed blows. Over the bed depends on a fan, totally enough for us.

    We only ate at the hotel the first night, because we were there so late. The buffet in the hotel is not bad, but in the restaurants in the place one gets for much smaller money a mega food. If you like thai eats should definitely not book half board, that is really a pure waste of money. Since the buffet rather international and in such a holiday i want local cuisine. Also cocktails & co. You get in the bars outside cheaper than in the hotel. We enjoyed the hotel bar only for the free wireless internet use and of course something to drink. Breakfast was good, but actually the same every day. There was basically everything available, for me as süßfrühstücker remained however, there were only toast with jam or cereal or cereals. There was daily changing times muffins, rolls or croissants. 4 types of fruit... Pineapple, papaya, bananas, melons and pomelo or guavas. But you have to say, that everything was clean and constantly refilled. We were always early breakfast (before 8 a. m.), because it was later simply was too full.

    The entire staff was very friendly. I don't know how many times one morning asked, whether one coffee or dte would like. With problems (we had a thick, fats wasp in the box over the bed) we are to reception and after breakfast was the topic taken care of. However, not everyone at the reception perfectly english, so some problems possibly two, three times need to be addressed, to the desired solution has. If the maid service, you can some things directly clarify, then it is. Our maid was very friendly and the cleaning was great! Even without requesting it there were daily new towels.

    Leisure time offers in the hotel we didn't use it, if there was any. The pools were all very clean and overall was the pool/seashore in a top condition. Only a lack of beach chairs and sun screens in the first days often for evil minds catered for, especially, because apparently some think, they are on the Ballermann and reserve with towels the couches. Time not! Not just down throw, it is officially not allowed. At lunch it was often difficult enough sunbeds, especially as we were in a group of 14 people on the way were. Then to the beach early, if we go in the area we could have stayed longer. There were more pool chairs and umbrellas set up, since the number of guests increased. At the pools and at the beach there were cold showers. The beach itself was nice and you can have very nice, long beach walks. Necessarily lunch snack in the small strandbars food, very delicious! And much cheaper than in the hotel. Temperature of the water was a dream, the optics rather well. Was quite cloudy and we had the one or the other jellyfish about us endure, as they simply not be seen. But on the beach there was a spray bottle with vinegar, if it got. But bearable, were no lion's mane jellyfish and it was unpleasant, but bearable, if you get off at. One day we the end right on the beach and had this corner for us alone. Really great!

    The hotel has its own stretch of beach with large sunbathing area. However, you could the whole beach, if you are, for example, a towel and a little further, where you but rather had his peace. To the airport it was about 1 hour drive. After Khao Lak Center with the taxi about 10 minutes. Shopping... Yes... Kitischige holiday souvenirs and knick-knacks of all kinds, of cheap flip-flops on wannabe clothes to dvds you get on every corner. In the heart of Khao Lak then there were still two, three shops for wellness and decoration article, the a bit more appealing are. Excursions could be at many offers. We have the serious way preferred and Peter stiller turned around. A german, many years ago who emigrated and is now for tourists desk with reliable and well-organised suppliers organised. Here and there perhaps a little more expensive than at the thai next door, but we are not once and for example, if you in the short term due to illness cancellations must, you can rely on, that you have money you got back. Http ://Holiday-service-khaolak. com/ There are restaurants in the small district around the hotel, especially recommendable: maleevan. Otherwise everywhere on every corner. The market Bang Niang visit and different things to try. Across the street was a great thai restaurant (with türkisener facade) and right at the beginning of the market left. Some small supermarkets for the most necessary purchases are available in the village. Taxis are available nearly everywhere. Not in the hotel, but the space in the 'center' walk.

The beach bar offers snacks, including burgers and fries, thailänd. Noodle and rice dishes or sandwiches. The beach bar we only used once and they can unfortunately not recommend. The ate beef burger with chips and the tuna sandwich was rather poor. Breakfast is an extensive buffet-style. From fresh fruits, granola, cereal, jam and different sorts of bread is warm, local dishes. For the german palate offers the buffet also sausage, ham, cheese, chicken breast and eggs in any form.

Depending on your needs, by the gardeners to. The more guests arrived, the more beach chairs were set up. At the beach there was - due to its requirements - no couches and/or umbrellas. In the area there are several pools and a child pool with slide. For children there is also a small playground and various toys (tricycles...) The main pool (is next to the childrens pool) with a waterfall, and a swim-up bar and was always well-attended. The upper pool (in the vicinity of the restaurants) is a little busy and for those seeking peace guests. Overall the atmosphere is very quiet.

    The deals are as already mentioned, much too expensive! Better to eat outside of the hotel, also the beverages i think the prices were very rude! A 1.5 liter water costs about €3.50! The above prices are exclusive of vat. And tips, then again a total of 17% will be added!

    To the airport it took about an hour, again, the hotel requires more for the shuttle than the surrounding providers. Shopping etc. Are in Khao Lak some possibilities and also enough excursions. We recommend outside of the hotel - hotelanbieter are much more expensive! Taxis available!

    As already mentioned, there are a variety of room types. Superior or deluxe, garden view, ocean view, or pool access with private access to the pool. We booked a superior room and it was missing to us at nothing. All rooms were 2013 newly renovated and are decorated in thai style. The furniture in a super condition. The rooms feature bathroom with bathtub/shower and toilet. A separate closet with safe and slippers and umbrella. There is a large double bed or two single beds, tv, air conditioning, balcony, sitting area, minibar, and tea making facilities. The size was really reasonable and adequate. Through the tropical forest is in some rooms quite dark. We felt however as pleasant to sleep and rest. On the balcony one can make great place to sit and the evening sounds of the animals. A clothes rack for drying the bath things gave it also. Absolutely essential: the schiebbare there were bednets in. So (almost) nothing which crawls and fly. A little thing disturbed and nevertheless: our room was by a locked door with another room connected. The other room is not entering but the children of the ' neighbors' were early and very loud.

Cleanliness and hygiene in the restaurant were good. It was always freshly refilled and lovingly arranged. Fresh fruit was a must. Drinks there is: water, changing juices, tea, coffee, milk. Very good we found the service for frühstückeier. 2 chefs made for eggs according to desire in 4 different variations. The cleaning of was fast and friendly.

The room service was thorough and daily. Always fresh towels, new shower gels, and cleanliness. The only drawback: the air conditioning was so cold (17 degrees), that we thaw had to ☺. Not an issue for us... Positive was, that the staff was very helpful and friendly. The work, performed had, were performed, that no guest, noticed. Just the, what you from Thailand expected. The hotel also features 2 times a week shuttle to the Bang Niang market. Cost 250 Baht for 2 people. However, if you prefer to stay in the hotel stayed, the can a delicious cocktail or in the spa. Please note: the prices are always without taxes specified! For high season, the merlin also theme nights at, the you can book. Included are buffet and dance/ gesangsshow.

    The distance to the international airport in phuket was about 90 kilometer and is bearable. Although the hotel is not in the center of Khao Lak is, lacks there at nothing. The resort secluded on tropenstrand and directly before the door the lively Thailand with numerous restaurants, small supermarkets, atm, bars, laundries, ausflugsagenturen, massage parlours and tailors. Access to khaolak? Fast, cheap and no problem. Either you drove with the hotel transfer or with one of the numerous taxis down the road.

Thumbs up for a gelungende combination of adventure and relaxation.

The hotel is rather overrated as a 4 star hotel. Nevertheless, if you want to enjoy a peaceful vacation and aren't too bothered about maintenance of the gardens, the hotel is generally recommended. The staff is as friendly and helpful as their language skills allow. Rooms are very clean and spacious, but rather dark. Pools are nice and clean, and the beach is clean and quiet. The food at the hotel is authentically Thai, a bit more expensive than in the 'village', but very good. Minus: The selection of glasses of wine is very limited and the wines are often ... 'vinegary'. The musical entertainment in the evening was very limited. It would have been nice to have had something from Thai culture. read hotel review

Beautiful hotel area in the middle of a tropical garden. The hotel is situated right by a private sandy beach and is on a slope built. The hotel has several pools, partly through waterfalls are connected. The rooms are located in many two-story building complexes. All paths between the rooms, the lobby and the front desk are covered, so that one in the area always outside, but dryshod to move can. The reception and the entire input area is very impressive. The lobby is the central place to stay and is very welcoming. Here there is a nice bar and ... free wi-fi internet access (in the rooms against fee), as well as several computer's. in the evening there is live music. During our stay at the september, thus within the off season, were extensive renovations in the asset. We appreciate, that at this stage the area only 20-30% busy was and the rest of the room has been completely renovated. The volume due to construction noise held itself very within limits and was most spots in the area was not at all noticeable. We felt at no time that bothered. Negative evaluation at this point due to the renovation we couldn't understand. It was also the beach promenade by a storm damaged. So that the promenade very complex needs to be rebuilt. A dredger and plenty of cement mixers have sailed the beach. But also it's not so bad then one goes to stop 100 meters to the left or to the right and everything is good. As a compensation we got a excellent complimentary evening buffets. Otherwise is the hotel is very clean and well-maintained. Towels for the beach provided. The guests mostly came from Germany.

But also sausage and bacon not bad, if you order the night before maybe a chang (really delicious beer) has drunk too much. As above already written, was due to the renovations on the beach a free dinner available.

    The ideal hotel for those seeking peace and quiet. The resort is located on South Beach, separated by a hill from the centre of Khao Lak. To the center of Khao Lak with the taxi about 10-15 minutes. The drive from the airport in phuket to the hotel took about 1 hour. Next to the merlin are still some other hotelanalgen right on the beach. The properties are located in a cul-de-sac. To the main road there were a few hundred meters. Until then were located on the road some restaurants, bars and some shops. Unfortunately also some indian tailors, the very pushy (ignore best simply). Atm are also available.

A hotel, that one can really recommend. For the first time in Thailand and then such a great hotel. Very nice hotel, with its magnificent outdoor area. The leaves falling were also little, it was not yet summer, but rainy season. The rooms are nice, large and always clean. From the bellboy to the cleaning staff everything was just great. The courtesy and friendliness, we were able to enjoy during our stay were simply very good. The beach was also due to the construction work just great (establishment of a seawall). We have left it to be challenged, there were ... an upgrade to the dinner. Massages on the beach, on what one neeeds to do. Restaurants in the surrounding are area very good and cheap. Recommend for this purpose the Roy yim restaurant & bar. There was also very delicious Schnitzel. Trips with the taxi after Khao Lak, 150 Bath to the weekly market 250 Bath. The view from our balcony and the noise from the evening were a great and priceless experience. A bit i would, nevertheless, but to complain about the evening: for every evening a musician played a familiar english hits. There were approximately 8-10 title. These were repeated again and again. That was annoying. read hotel review
