A 10 day stay at this hotel at the southern end of Patong (beach), I enjoyed the facilities including four pools but there are so many areas of improvement needed. Located near the beach (walk across the road), and 10-15 mins walk to Jungceylon Mall and Bangla Rd. The room was a good size and comfortable, I had a pool...

We have been to Thailand numerous times before and have stayed in many hotels in and around patong and karon. Patong Melin was our least favourite of them all. As this accommodation was part of a holiday package, We regret booking this deal. Upon arrival staff were rude and not welcoming, then asked for a $200AU cash deposit. Checked into...

We stayed here over the Christmas and New Years and found the hotel quite good, pleasant staff and plenty of pool space to enjoy. The hotel was nice if a bit tired in parts, internal corridors within the accommodation blocks could do with sprucing, lifts have no air con, general wear and tear however could not fault the staff who...

I visited Patong Merlin for a family holiday with a baby. The staff were very friendly and loved babies. The hotel is surrounded by mountains in the distance and has several beautifully maintained pools. Our delux room connected directly to a pool, with a couch on the patio, perfect for always having that "special spot" by the pool reserved just...

I went here with my relatives (group of 12) during Christmas for 5 days. The location is good coz it's very close to the beach and if you have kids and teenagers, it's good for relaxation and family holiday. There are 4 swimming pools in the hotel with kids pools too. The environment is relaxing and you can grab a...

Absolutely love this place. The staff are so friendly but I think that is all Thai people. Nothing is an issue and you only have to ask. The grounds are immaculate and pools cleaned regularly. There is entertainment nightly and you can do as much or as little as you want. Plenty of stuff to do around the hotels, different...

After travelling through Thailand for 2 weeks, we arrived in Patong and spent our last 7 nights at the Patong Merlin based on high recommendations. We weren't disappointed. The resort is amazing! Huge, with numerous pools, restaurants and bars. The rooms are very modern, clean and cool. The only issue we had was during check-in. Unbeknown to us, the check-in...

“Pool view away from Hard Rock cafe. Higher floors (3rd or 4th) are nice but elevator may be a bit of a walk so only if you like stairs.”
