More like a homeless hostel! In a bad state of repair and not attractive at all. Wanted to cry when we arrived. They didnt even have our room available when we arrived. Pool looked badly maintained with large hole in surrounding area covered by a wooden crate! Dining area very poor and not clean and food not at all appetising!...

For the first point of view, pretty nice, but you can´t look under the lid. Pretty good cleaned rooms with equal size were only one thing can be highlited. The rest is real horror. All food is prepared in another hotel and bringed to MBH. Food is offered repeatedly (lunch food for the dinner, dinner for the lunch). Electricity collapses...

cats everywhere in the pool, in the restaurant, incredibly bad, unhygienic, old and fashioned hotel, rather a tourist hostel, the worst money invested. Food was terrible, room was small, equally bad,first impressions was crying and we were eating in another restaurants, the total price for holidays over 2.000 Eur. We will never come back. Worst vacation!

Very bad services, rude staff, the water did not run for 2 days in the entire hotel and we didn't have warm water for 1 week, the ice-maker didn't work so all the drinks - beer, gin, wine- were hot. So all in all totally overpriced and the attitude was so disrespectful. Stay away!

We were in Merlin Beach Hotel from May,8 till May 15 2013. Very terrible service, food, and people who work there not FRIENDLY. We bought family room but we had small room instead..... And they did'n care about our problem, they didn't speak with us, so we were very unhappy with that trip. Never will go there again!!!!!!!!!!!!

Accomodation is reasonable. Facilities are adequate. Entertainment (known as animation) is poor. Food while plentiful is substandard. There is individual staff members who are very good, cheerful and helpful but overall staff' attitude and response to requests are poor. Our package was all inclusive however, due to the poor standard we used the hotel as bed and breakfast - you...
