Great hotel and grounds but location wasn't the best with not a lot nearby.
What a fantastic resort! Located right on the beach and minutes walk to an array of restaurants, shops and bars.
The rooms are spacious, clean and overlook the beautiful jungle gardens. The resort is involved in a number of conservation programs which makes staying here an added bonus.
There are a number pools to choose from, meaning there is never an issue with overcrowding.
The buffet breakfast is one of the best I have ever seen. The range of choices are just incredible, including the always popular egg station!!
Staff are friendly, professional and always have a smile for you!
We stayed in a Family Superior room and could not recommend this option any higher if travelling with kids.
There is nothing we didn't like about Merlin Khaolak. Highly recommend.
Loved visiting Khao Lak, we went in low season so a lot of restaurants and facilities weren't open but we still enjoyed our time. We could walk from the hotel down the street to 300baht massage places and 1000 baht for a good quality dinner. Tuk tuk ride into town and the markets or just relax at the hotel pools. Great family place!
The merlin khaolak was a beautiful resort it's was clean and the staff were lovely we had a great time and would definitely go back.there wasn't a lot of night life around but we had two small children so that didn't really bother us . My only suggestion would be an indoor games room for young children when it was pouring rain .The food served for breakfast was amazing there was so much to choose from we didn't know where to start and it changed every day there was always something different to try. My family and I had a wonderful relaxing time
Khao lak merlin is a beautiful place, however upon looking back, i think i would certainly recommend this resort to couples, not families. There is little for kids to do at the resort if it is pouring rain. Great for honeymooners or couples who do not need to entertain! Pools could have been kept cleaner. (Especially the kids pool) house keeping was amazing!!!!
