First time to Thailand and wish I had went earlier. Great breakfast, friendly staff, clean rooms, great pools and u can walk every where. We had two kids and they loved the kids club, very friendly people in Thailand.

Haven't been disappointed the second time around in the same property, just as I had remembered it from 2003 - location is terrific and Hard Rock Cafe a stones throw away, amazing shopping in Jung Ceylon shopping centre - quality clothing, variety and unusual artifacts.

This was my first time to Phuket and the Patong Merlin was very central to everything so walking was always my choice of transport.
There were a lot of things to do and see.
The hotel had live entertainment every night and also had a beach side restaurant at the rear of the hotel and one at the front of the hotel. Buffet breaky was a treat

Room Tip: when organising accomodation in asian countries "Note to self" Delux rooms have a higher r...

We stayed at Patong Merlin for 8 days with no problems. We found the location great, markets on one side of the hotel, a small supermarket next door and the beach just across the road.
The staff were courteous and friendly, the breakfast buffet had many options and the place was very clean.
Our only 2 complaints were the room above ours had pipes which made some noise but it only happened a couple of times and was not when we were trying to sleep so didnt bother us, the other was the internet which is overpriced and if you get cut off without logging out the next person who logs in goes straight into whatever you were doing. We found a place in the market area that had internet much much cheaper.
I would definately stay at this hotel again.

We stayed here as part of a group of 7 and everybody loved the Patong Merlin. Because we booked at short notice we had to change rooms after 2 nights but this was done with ease thanks to the front counter staff.
Our first 2 nights were in a Superior Pool View room which was very clean and spacious and had a nice balcony overlooking the middle of the 3 pools and the beautiful gardens.
Our next 4 nights were in a new Deluxe wing room which was just gorgeous. Huge, ultra-modern bathroom with separate bath & shower; large comfy bed and a nice size balcony with a built-in drying rack. The only down side to the balcony was there wasn't any greenery to provide privacy so as soon as you walked outside you were on-show to everyone else on their balconies or by the pool.
Breakfast was good - a huge buffet assortment with something for everyone.
The pool areas were lovely - great gardens and plenty of sun lounges. Meal and drink service by the pool was exceptional - the best I've come across in years.
We ate at the hotel's Cafe del Mar at the beach-end one night but it was absolutely terrible so don't waste your time - there are plenty of great restaurants in walking distance eg: Sweet Lobster across the road from Hard Rock.
I tried to access wifi in the lobby but it wasn't working properly so I used the computers in the internet lounge - Bt150 for 30 min blocks and the speed was good.
We used the hotel to book Simon Cabaret and also airport transfers which was very easy.
All in all we had a great stay here and thoroughly recommend the Patong Merlin.

We love the Merlin and have stayed there four times out of 7 trips to Phuket. The only problem is the new wing. It is too far from everything and the new pool is too cold and lacks atmosphere. Most people go to the other pools. Also, if you make a booking, make sure you stipulate if you want a double room or a twin. They do not go out of their way to help you if your booking is wrong.

8 of us have just returned from 10 days at this glorious Resort, the Staff were friendly, courteous and efficient, the rooms well equipped, clean with a balcony overlooking beautiful gardens and pool. Breakfast was varied and excellent, suiting the fussiest of eaters. Location ideal (we have stayed at 2 other locations on previous visits), but consider this the best we have been to. We would highly recommend this resort and would love to return in the future. October 2011
