Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Friendly staff, there are plenty of swimming pools within the resort and are easily accesible. Small neighbourhood nearby with plenty of Thai restaurants and tiny shops. However it is relatively expensive to take the taxi to and from Khao Lak Town centre and the night market

good hotel, comfortable and lovely gardens/pools!
The hotel is lovely and grounds are great. Its right on the beach and has stunning sunsets to watch. There are many pools to enjoy and relax at. The rooms are comfortable but a little dated if you stay in a superior style room. The area outside the hotel has a couple restaurants but the few meals I had were just average. There is a fabulous beach cafe just outside the hotel resort along the beach and its a beautiful spot to grab lunch!

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Having stayed at four resorts in this area over the past 3 years, we decided to upgrade to Merlin, we have previously walked through the grounds. We were most impressed with the resort and especially the friendly staff. Lovely big smiles from the Concierge desk upon arrival and nothing was too difficult. Good breakfast, lovely room surrounded by lush gardens. The Thai style timber décor and nicely refurbished rooms are a great alternative to staying in the usual concrete jungle. Many thanks to management and staff for a wonderful 2 day peaceful escape from our home in Phuket.
