Patong Merlin Resort Phuket”

The Patong Merline is in the perfect location, it is central yet serene - the layout of the hotel makes you feel like you have escaped the madness of Patong
There is nothing that I disliked. I have stayed at the Merlin on two occassions now and both times have found it fantastic

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.

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.

Pool access rooms are amazing

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.

Big Hotel”

Very large hotel, got three swimming pool, very high class, good service, good breakfast, near to beach and night life, shopping and many more..
there are still some staff can't understand english well.

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.

Best Stay”

The hotel had fantastic facilities like the pools,bars and ammenities.Very close to everything in Patong inluding the beach directly across the road
I would say that the rooms are a bit of a let down on the rest of the resort,the beds and rooms need a bit of an upgrade

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”

The rooms were very neat always cleaned well, staff are very polite, friendly and obliging. The grounds were kept very clean and presented beautifully.
The only concern that i had was even though the pools were sparkling clean, the tiles in the third pool, closest to the beach, were very slippery, my daughter slipped over three times getting into the pool.

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”

Room location was great, always cleaned meticulously, staff very friendly, nothing was too much trouble

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.

Fabulous resort, great location”

Great swimming pools, delicious meals, comfortable bed, great service

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.
