Peaceful oasis in the centre of Patong

Nestled in the heart of the vibrant town of Patong and overlooking the white sands of the Patong Beach, the Patong Merlin Hotel is a friendly oasis complete with lush foliage, a range of facilities and rooms which offer a high level of comfort and subtle Thai furnishings.

Start your day with a visit the Coconut Coffee shop where you can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast and later stop by here for Asian and international favourites sure to please every palate. Alternatively, head to the Seaside Garden for themed dinners and evening entertainment. For light snacks and your favourite drinks head to one of the two bars. Recommended is the SunSet Bar, the ideal spot to enjoy a refreshing beverage overlooking the azure waters of the ocean.

Ideal for both couples and families, younger guests will love the kid’s club, playground and two children’s swimming pools whilst adults can head to the soothing Merlin Spa where natural ingredients are used in pampering well-being and beauty treatments which can be enjoyed privately or with a friend or partner.

OK type of Hotel

Helensvale, Australia

Booked this hotel for 12 nights, but only stayed for 4. Hotel was OK, Room was OK, Food was OK, Staff were OK, Pools were OK - as stated it was an OK type of Hotel. Had 4 beautiful pools all appeared clean but on closer inspection the grouting was grubby and there was always a skim line of oils at the top of the water line. Room was comfortable although Fridge shelf had been repaired with blu-tack! Hotel had put flowers and a basket of fruit in the room as it was our anniversary, which was a nice touch. Staff were not as pleasant as I would have expected and in some circumstances quite rude. When sitting round the pool all day purchasing drinks, we asked for 2 glasses of ice and were told that this was only supplied if you purchased a drink. Explained that the drink we had purchased had gone warm and reluctantly the ice was given. After 4 days we contacted our agent at flight centre who arranged for us to move to another hotel in another area at Karon Beach. Hotel did offer to move us to another of their hotels at no cost, but we decided not to take up this offer and to move to the Mövenpick at extra cost to us. The main problem we had was not with the hotel but with Patong Beach itself. The Beach was filthy - with bags of rubbish - other items we saw included condoms, tampons and broken glass. To be fair to the locals we walked along the beach early about 6am just as the tide went out. And we did see them clearing the beach with lots of black bags of rubbish waiting to be collected. I assume Most of the rubbish was brought in by the tide so not left on the beach by anyone. The streets were nearly impossible to walk along being uneven with smelly drains and shop owners constantly harassing you to come inside. We knew it was going to be busy and we wanted bars and restaurants but this was not suitable for us. Karon Beach was quieter and more suitable for a couple in their 60’s.

3 stars but with 4/5 star prices

Manchester, United Kingdom

Stayed here for 10 nights and overall had an enjoyable stay. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The room was a little on the small size for three people and wardrobe space was very small. For a weekend break it is fine but for 3x pple x 10 nights well your almost living out of your suitcase. Air con in the room was fine. But around the rest of the hotel there are just fans which when very humid the fans dont cool you. The pools were great. Cleaned daily and during our stay there were plenty of sunbeds to go around. The position of this hotel is its best feature. Over the road from the beach and close to all eateries & nightlife. We had no problems with the reception staff unlike many reviews on here. If you need to keep your room on upto 21:00 because you have a night flight home then they want £95. Bit steep i thaught !! Wifi for us was hit and miss. But annoying as everytime you came back into the hotel you had to log back in again ! For eating out you need to try the malin plaza. Fabulous food at great prices. Also elephant sanctury james bond island trip and simon caberet all very enjoyable and good value. Having been to other parts of thailand i found phuket to be expensive. I enjoyed our stay but would i come here again.... no. Would i go to thailand again.. definately. Probably chiang mai and bankok. Phuket i feel has got too touristy and the price tags to go with it. But thankyou to Patong Merlin and to the staff who looked after us. Especialy the maid for our room.
