Our 1 week stay was ok, nothing spectacular. The location was pretty good and I would recommend booking a room in the middle section of the complex for a quiet stay. Upon our arrival, the staff were not very professional, not many staff members speak English well and smiles were hard to come by. The most disappointing experience was receiving... More

Hotel is absolutely beautiful and the pool area is particularly exquisite. Staff at check in are absolutely fantastic, and the maids in the rooms are always pleasant and smiley. The beach outside the hotel is dreadful, get a tuktuk to Tri Tra Beach 5 minutes uphill drive away for a real beautiful beach. The sea at Patong Beach is brown... More

Nice relaxed place. Surprisingly quiet considering we are right at the end of the beach Street. Comfortable bed in nice clean room that is well designed. Good buffet breakfast. Staff are nice. Lots of stray cats wandering around the hotel. We walked everywhere, food was great and well priced.

The beautiful friendly nature of the staff at Patong Merlin Hotel (especially Laddawan Patphan's smile that never fades as she greets you at reception) make this beautifully appointed hotel a 5 star+ for me. The pools are fabulous bet what makes your stay at The Merlin a 6 star is the evening entertainment provided by the amazing CJ Orduna and... More

If you want a hotel that is centrally located, this is a good choice. On arrival at the airport, we were received by the shuttle team – no problems, taken to the hotel and greeted with our baggage collected, welcome drink and cool towel. Check in quick and effortless – happy as it was a long flight. Swiftly taken to... More

We booked our Thailand holiday through Asia air escape so this accommodation wasn't our choice. It is centrally located on the Main Street of Patong about a 10 minute walk to Bangla Road and 5 minute walk to Malin plaza - where you'll find a good variety of street food. We were booked into a queen room pretty standard on... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. Location is great, close to loads of bars, restaurants and shops but still quiet and chilled! Staff were great, it was our honeymoon and they put a lovely basket of fruit in our room! Hotel grounds are extremely well kept.
