Before booking this hotel I read a lot of reviews and there were a lot of negative points, yes the hotel is showing its age as are most of the hotels in and around the busy area, But the rooms are spacious and clean the beds are comfortable, the aircon works. The breakfast is terrific, there is a western section, vegetarian and Thai section plus a Halal and egg station. The staff were verfy obliging and I could not fault it. As I had an early flight the made u p a breakfast box for me, so full marks. I would recommend this Hotel most highly. Read less

We just spend 2 weeks at Patong Merlin hotel for our second honeymoon vacation. All the good stuff: We were greeted welcome as soon as we arrived with a cool drink and a cool cloth. Our room was ready though we arrived early. When entering our room the bed was decorated with flowers and towels made as swans - a fruit basked was there for us to enjoy. We entered a clean and ok room with a big and comfortable bed which was not as hard as many hotel beds in Thailand are so we slept very good. After unpacking we went for a small sightseeing in the gardens and pool area only to see that everything was beautiful maintained and well kept. We tried all the pools only to find that we had chosen the right hotel in Patong. The breakfast was fine with a good selection of food for everyone though I will call their coffee for "coffee light" as it was not very strong. They have not yet invented sliced cheese but there was some good cheddar. The staff was always smiling and helpful. This goes for all the staff - going from reception to the cleaning staff. There were not many downsides to mention from our visit but it should be mentioned that the drinks in the pool bars has nothing to do with the recepies drinks should be made after. We tried a few e.g. Pina Colada and they were more limonade than drinks - almost no alcohol and not made right. The prices - 190 bath per drink was much too expensive for what you got. One day I ordered a bottle of water for which they charged 65 bath. Many previous reviews have written about this and everytime the coments from the hotel has been - we will look into it - but it seems that"look into it" only resulted in - we keep the prices. We also ordered lunch a couple of times with the same result - tasteless and with too high prices. Better priced and real drinks we would have spent much more here. Instead we went outside for lunch and drinks. The hotel location however is just perfect. It is in the quiet end of Patong but in walking distance to all the nightlife and shopping. The beach is just outside the hotel. Will we stay here again ? This is a sure yes. But we will not buy anything from the bars if the quality and prices do not change. We are frequent Thailand travelers and Patong Merlin was our 12th visit to Thailand. Patong Merlin is ranged among our top 5 hotels. See you again in 2021 Read less

This is the second time we've been to this hotel and we have loved every minute of our stay once again. The hotel is spotlessly clean everywhere, and as an extra precaution hand Sanitizer is located all around . All the staff are soooooo friendly and very Smiley at all times . The buffet breakfast is fantastic, even if you are a fussy eater there is something there for everyone, hot coffee or tea is always served with a lovely Smile. The pool areas are brilliant and well looked after, and there is never a shortage of beds . Around the pool at lunchtime there is a live food cooking station, which I thought was a very nice touch. Our room 2208 was lovely, and was spotlessly cleaned every day , the cleaner was such a lovely very friendly smiley lady. I would like to personally thank all the staff who work so hard at the Patong Merlin for making it such a wonderful place. We look forward to returning , hopefully next year. Thank you. Nick Hegarty and Jo Rose. Read less
