Back twice in less than a year. Thank you to all the staff at The Patong Merlin for an amazing 9 night stay. My family enjoyed every minute. The staff are awsome and very accommodating. Our rooms were clean and well presented. Our day at the Spa was an experience I will remember for a long time. The complementary fruit bowl was both unexpected and pleasant surprise. Looking forward to returning to see the completed renovations on Pool number 2. Thank you Patong Merlin for an unforgettable stay Read less

My wife and I stayed at this hotel whilst holidaying in Thailand and it was part of a packaged tour so I cannot comment on pricing. Apart from that everything about the place was first class. It is located about 2 kms from the ever popular Bangla Rd and is virtually right next door to the Hard Rock Hotel. It's external appearance may appear to be outdated but that doesn't detract from the venue at all. Our greeting was warm and friendly and we were in our room in no time with several bonus giveaways. The room was quite spacious and very well furnished with a bar fridge, aircon, wall mounted TV, safe, wardrobe, table and chairs and good storage space to boot. The bed was huge and could have easily slept 4 or 5 people at a time. We even had a small balcony that you could actually enjoy whilst overlooking the pool area below. The bathroom was a fair size and overall the room was very clean and tidy and we couldn't fault it at all. Breakfast was included in our tariff and was just the thing to start your day off on the right foot. On offer was hot and cold food, hot and cold drinks, fruits, pastries and a large range of breads. The hotel gardens were a delight with beautiful tropical vegetation throughout the entire grounds. The hotel has 4 pools but one was out of commission due to a major renovation. It was a thoroughly enjoyable stay for us and will be our first choice when visiting Phuket in the future. Highly recommended. Read less

Our stay was for 12 nights and we stayed in a pool access room. Firstly when we arrived our safe was NOT bolted to the wall meaning anyone could come in and remove the whole thing. When I bought it to managements attention I was told ALL the rooms safes were the same! I had 6 other rooms with family members in staying at the same resort and all their safes were fixed to the wall. The staff at reception were not helpful at all. Our belongings including passports and money were kept at reception for safe keeping. The “Pool Bar” is located in the pool access rooms pool which is quite hidden and away from the main pools so not really family friendly and not a pool bar as you would expect. The hotel is clean and I couldn’t fault our cleaner, she was lovely and did a great job. The other staff were not as friendly. Other hotels we have stayed at in Patong had much friendlier staff who always acknowledged you. I wouldn’t stay there again! The location is great just not welcoming staff as the Thai’s usually are.
