We were looking for a hotel in Phuket that was in a position for us to sample a bit of everything, the Patong Merlin ticks all the boxes. It's only a short walk to most of the key places to visit in Patong and just a short ride to everywhere else. The hotel was clean and well maintained. The staff were lovely and helpful. Only a short walk to the beach and plenty of room around the pool area. The rooms are a good size, bed is comfortable and the bathroom had a Jacuzzi bath with glass separating it to the room. The breakfast was plentiful, I always started at the omlette station then made my way around. We didn't have any other meals at the hotel as the options in the Patong area are endless. The hotel also provides a free bus to its sister hotel in Phuket town, here you will have a few hours to explore the lovely town. Would definitely return to this hotel. Read less

I have been to this place a number of times and it never fails to please. The buildings may look worn but this place is a real paradise with lovely well maintained gardens (the grass is the softest I have felt under foot) and with a choice of 4 pools it means you can relax in a different area and have new experience.

I have been to this place a number of times and it never fails to please. The buildings may look worn but this place is a real paradise with lovely well maintained gardens (the grass is the softest I have felt under foot) and with a choice of 4 pools it means you can relax in a different area and have new experience. All the staff are very friendly except the towel man who never smiles and always just utters gruffly ROOM NUMBER that sometimes drip drying would be a more pleasant choice. I found the beds and air conditioning very comfortable and the toiletries were much appreciated and the buffet breakfast with its variety kept me going all day This place is across the road from the beach and if you walk through the lobby it is across from Otop market where you can get cheap food and do shopping. All in all this place has something for everyone and I will be back again. Read less

Looking for a great hotel, great pools, breakfast, lovely staff and perfect location. Well look no further, Patong Merlin is a perfect choice. Walking distance to everything and Otop is directly across the road. Not forgetting the beach is directly out the back.

My family have been coming to the Patong Merlin hotel now for the last 21 years. The staff are very pleasant and the rooms are very clean also. The breakfast in the mornings are very good and have a lot of food to choose from aswell. The hotel is perfect,and is in a great location. We will be returning in April next year.
