Patong Merlin Resort Phuket”
The Patong Merlin hotel is in my opinion the best place to stay in Patong beach. I have stayed there twice now and have recommended it to many people I know. It is centrally located - close to all ammenities. The staff are very welcoming, lovely and very helpful at all times. The facilities are great. The rooms are well equipped and are always cleaned perfectly and serviced daily. The Patong offers 3 large swimming pools which are in impecible condition and are cleaned daily. For the price you pay to stay at the Merlin, you definitely get your money's worth. I would definitely recommend the Merlin to anyone travelling to Phuket and staying in Patong beach.
Back to my seccond home!”
this has been the 8th time i have returned to the patong merlin hotel. each time i find myself drawn back to this wonderful place as it leaves me on a good note every time. you can always expect having a fantastic time at the patong merlin. the staff couldnt be more helpfull the rooms are at all a decent size, the breakfasts are huge with a lovely variety. the locaction of this hotel is what gets me.. you are right smack bang in the centre of patong but once you are in the hotel you would never know that you have everything just outside. i would reccomend this room to anyone really. there are all different age groups it suits.
Fantastic hotel great location”
we stayed at the patong merlin hotel feburary 2012, what a fantastic place to stay, we upgraded to a pool access room and we were very pleased we did, we got a 50% discount on upgrade. the hotel has all the features and ammenities you could ask for and the breakfast has a very wide variety. we had the buffet out in the seaview restaraunt and it was also great with a wide variety of choice, and everything we ate was delicious. the hotel is on a very large block of land, so once inside you can escape the noise and craziness of patong. i would reccomend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in patong, close to shopping, restaurants, and the great nightlife that patong has to offer. also the staff were very friendly and attended to all of our needs.
When you told any local people that you are staying in patong merlin hotel, their reaction are surprise and very impress, they will said what a big hotel and very expensive hotel that she/he cannot affort it. It really make me proud and feel very fortunate. I believe patong merlin hotel is very famous and almost all the local people heard or knew about it. One more thing, during my stay, i notice 99% hotel guest are not asian which make me and my partner are the only asian guest. It make me feel like i am in Europe.
Overall i would have to say that the Patong Merlin Hotel is one of the best in Patong.The pools and ammenities are second to none in this area and with a bit of an upgrade on its rooms and bedding it would be Number 1 in Patong.The staff were very polite and helpfull,the breakfast was absolutely superb with plenty to choose from.The Patong Merlin is a very good Hotel for Families and kids would be most suited here due to the fantastic ammenities,pools and games room. I would be more than happy to book with the Patong Merlin to stay again.My rating for this Hotel/Resort would be 8/10.
Excellent hotel & location, lots of parking, but single men should clarify regime.”
Before I come to the one reservation for single men, I have much praise to lavish. This is £100+ per night, a good deal more than I normally pay, prompted by offering a solution to a potential parking problem (as seen from home). Another nearby hotel offering parking told me it couldn't be guaranteed, but booking my car with Budget, who's premises are within the Merlin, did get me a guarantee, and there was loads of parking space there. Outside possible, but not easy, and who wants that? The hotel facilities were everything I could ask for, spacious well designed room, balcony in afternoon shade as I'd requested, unlimited wide ranging buffet breakfast that could tank you up until the evening, and the location is so central for the lively Patong evenings. Staff always very helpful, plus that very easy parking! Now to the single man point. A single man will often want to be accompanied by female company widely available nearby, and finding a perfect companion first time for the entire stay will be hit or miss at best. If you book a room you are booking and paying for two, so why should you be restricted. First lady no problem, she registers as your guest, but what about lady #2 if #1 fails? That's where it can get a little awkward, and I suspect this to be true of most hotels in Phuket, not just this one (so the manager told me and I've no reason to challenge this). Yes, a lady has to be registered, not a problem, but they seem to think not as a guest and a fee of c.800B for the night should be paid (i.e. man pays twice!). I was told this by the staff, was very unhappy about it, so spoke to the manager. He obviously couldn't change company policy, but I got things clearer. When I brought along a second lady (who actually did stay for the rest of my remaining 9 days, but that was my good luck), they let me register her as my guest and no further questions asked. Perhaps explaining my unhappiness clearly to the manager, and referring to my Agoda review, helped my cau
My returned visit to Patong Merlin”
This is my second stay at the Patong merlin. This is a great hotel for families with children with the added bonus of a kids club, or for couples. The hotel has four swimming pools to choose from and all amenities a tourist requires. Staff are very friendly. The rooms are spacious and very well presented. The breakfast buffet is always a big plus in my family. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Phuket.
Checked in for only 3 days but have stayed at this hotel before whilst in Thailand. Convenient location in Patong and always friendly service. Inhouse dining always good and prices fair when compared with similar hotels. Pool areas are large and garden always manicured. Would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Patong area who is budget conscious and yet still expects a good level of service. You will get it here at the Patong Merlin.
Fantastic hotel, great service with a smile”
my husband and i enjoyed our second honeymoon at the patong merlin. we arrived to smiles, and our room romantically decorated with flowers and chocolates!!! we were just above the pool, and we spent many hours watching people frolicking in the pool. we were by the 3rd pool which was much quieter than the other two. the location is just great, about a 20 minute walk to banglar road. the pool bar prices were very competive with the bars on the streets, and as such we could spend many hours simply enjoying without breaking the bank. the breakfast everyday - wow!!! so much food, and great quality also. we had the same waiter each day, sam who even arranged a tuk tuk driver for us for the day.
When we booked into the Patong Merlin we were disappointed to find that we did not have a pool view room so asked reception for a move. We were offered a room overlooking the pool with an apology that the wing did not have a lift, olthough older, the room was clean and confortable for three persons. Staff were all very friendly and most spoke English well, all restraunts were very good as was the entertainment provided most nights in the hotel or the outside dining area at the beachfront. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.
Overall the hotel and facilities are excellent, if i travel to Thailand, Patong i will be staying at the Patong Merlin again and have recommended it to others, it is well situated and the staff are very helpful, housekeeping are excellent and prompt also the overall staff of the whole hotel, the rooms are ample space , the buffet breakfast is plentiful with a wide variety of foods etc. The entertainment is every night in two sections, absolutely fabulous.
Fabulous resort, great location”
the patong merlin is an excellent resort. we stayed in a superior room which had its own private deck and entrance to the pool straight out of the back door. a small swim over to the bar or to the sun deck and it was magic. the beach is just across the road giving access to massages, jet skis, paragliding, and other water activities. the main night life in bangla road is a short tuk tuk ride away, but within in walking distance if you want to stroll around. there are only 2 criticisms i can make. one is the wi-fi link was not strong in the room that we stayed in which caused drop outs or failures to log on. we had to go to the lobby to ensure a strong connection. the other criticism is the lack of choice on the tv channels and no in-room dvd player. we were out every night anyway so the tv issue was not a big one apart from the one night we wanted to stay in. so, overall, an excellent resort, well worth staying in, and i'd go back tomorrow if i could.
Great Hotel but customer service needed”
this is my second stay at the patong merlin, i do love this hotel and it’s location. we were in the new wing this time the rooms are very comfortable and the beds in these rooms would have to be the best i have slept in while away, very comfortable. but the staff on the reception would have to be the rudest i have ever encounted at any hotel i have stayed at, they were last time to but worse this time, very disappointing really.
Fantastic hotel!! ”
We were here to celebrate my boyfriends 40th birthday. Hotel helped with surprise visit from his family, decorated the room with balloons, towel made into a cake and petals on the bed saying happy birthday. Also gave him a cake and candles! And even upgraded us!! Staff couldn't do enough. Clean and very handy for everything. Highly recommend Patong Merlin to anyone.
If I was to visit Phuket again, I would certainly stay at the Patong Merlin again. Plenty of pool choices, breakfast was just excellent, room was quiet and comfortable thou the aircon was noisy and our bed was a little tired. Everything is within easy walking distance. Enjoyed happy hour with other friendly guests and staff.
Very Nice Hotel”
We found the patong merlin warm friendly resort. swimming pools are very nice along with the friendly staff and very helpful. The restraunt was good , breakfast had a wide veriety and plenty to chose from. Being close to the shopping and restraunts and able to walk to almost all the entertainment.rooms could be revamped but clean and tidy. some rooms were being renovated
Best Holiday Ever!!”
Had the best time ever!! will be differently staying at Patong Merlin Hotel next year, food was amazing, people were so friendly love Patong Merlin. Thank you for everything was the best time!!
Great location with wonderful facilities”
my daughter and i chose the merlin patong based on recommendations from family members. i found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, the facilities including pools, bars and restaurants were fantastic and the lcoation was perfect and we found it really easy to walk everywhere we needed. the hotel offered tour services. i would recommend this hotel for any age group to stay in.
fabulous - could no have wished for more”
we were two women enjoying a girlie week to spoil our selves and relax. we returned to the merlin as we stayed there before and enjoyed our previous stay.so after a bad experience at a nearby resort we checked out and returned to the merlin as it is always reliably good.the staff were fabulous and helpful. we stayed in the new section over looking pool 3. this resort is close to the beach, a great dentist, plastic surgeon, shopping, the in house spa is to die for i recommend the 3 hour top to toe treatment, the night life is close plenty of restaurants to meet your needs. the pools are beautiful, sitting around relaxing, sipping pinacoladas was just perfect. highly recommend for couples for romance or for families. 5 star in my eyes love it and will return again and again.
This is an excellent hotel. ”
We had a wonderful stay at Patong Merlin. It was my husband's birthday while we were there and there was a birthday cake delivered to our room from Management and staff. A lovely surprise! Also, because we had early flights when we were leaving there were breakfast boxes prepared for us to take with us.
