This was my second stay at the Patong Merlin, albeit the first was seven years ago. It's a decent hotel, does what it says on the tin and serves all basic needs. However if you are a couple and looking for something a little more intimate and relaxing I would suggest looking at some more smaller, boutique hotels.
Positives for this hotel are that it has a choice of three pools, and you never have to reserve a sunbed in the morning. The rooms are cleaned daily, staff friendly and it is only 3min stroll to the beach.
The negative is (in my view) that this is a BIG hotel and so you can find a lot of kids around the pools, lots of groups (of all ages) and so it can get a little noisy. The rooms are okay, modern, but I wouldn't class as 4 star as it is rated. For families and groups this hotel is ideal but for couples may not offer the more cosy feel if that's what you are after.
