“Mermaid Resort , clean and new hotel in Phuket”
Reviewed 20 March 2011

small hotel with nice pool.
dont take balkony on end, pigeon poo all over balkony. nobody will clean that.
location is not the best, 10 min to beach. busy places everywhere.
beach crowdy and stirred water no good for snorkeling. nothing to see in Phuket. but if you really want to go where sex tourism is quite big, dirty streets. all together - big tourist place with a lot of bullshitting. never again. but this is a matter of Phuket - not the hotel. the hotel was a good choice.

The hotel amenities are okay, except for the poor lighting in dark and dingy rooms. We were also surprised by the lack of maintenance which necessitated a staff member coming into our room on arrival and repairing light plugs and fittings. This person complained of the poor quality of the previous maintenance staff person who, he said, had been incompetent. The location is in one of the seediest areas of Patong Beach. Our stay was also marred by the number of parasites trying to sell time-share properties to anyone who stayed there, and to those who had been enticed from the street to listen to their sales pitch. These people had access to the hotel booking records (without our authority), and occupied the restaurant, and other parts of the hotel (which we believed should have been solely for guest use) for almost the entire day. Written instructions in the room also warned us not to put toilet paper in the toilet. What else is it for? The beach, which was correctly described as 5 minutes walk from the hotel, could best be described as filthy, covered with litter, and occupied by almost the whole of the population of Europe. We had intended to stay for 7 nights, but shifted out after 3.

If your looking for a place where high pressure pomme salesman want to jam time share up your skirt, then this is the place for you. I was thrown out of this hotel because I wouldn't submit to their scam tactics. The hotel itself is fine, but when I go on holidays i'm not looking to be pressured into time share every time I walk through the foyer.

We stayed here in January this year and we have to say the place is really really good,
The staff are helpfull and organised anything we needed upon request with lots of genuineness and honestly,
Life is the Owner and he is a larger than life charector friendly and has a young family, he will be found discreetly checking all is well without too much notice,
the resort is situated in what we found to be a perfect setting not too close to the madness and not too far so the best of both worlds,
the beach is a short nice walk away and bars are literally on your doorstep as well as restaurants and shops,the food served in the resort is very good they have a chef resident and she is a superb cook,

all in all we would give this place 5 stars out of 5 and we would seriously consider returning again some day-

We stayed in the Mermaid for two nights whilst in Phuket. The resort was nice and clean, the rooms were very large and the bathroom was one of the best we had seen. The resort is located just outside the centre of Patong Beach which made it nice and quiet. The pool was nice and the staff were very friendly and helpful! Whilst the beach was nice we did not like the area of Patong beach in general, far too many sleazy bars!!

Okay, but some problems with the pool bar peoples, drunk and noisy, shafted up at 2 AM in the night. Slept a few hours before departure to airport!

This is a wonderful place to stay with a large bedroom and a large bathroom, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and mountain view.

Poor breakfast, Coffee or Tea with bread, jam, egg, sausages and Juice, not a breakfast buffet as we were told!!

Will definitely stay here again but without any breakfast...
