From the moment we checked in we were made to feel welcome and met quickly with some much needed refreshments. The grand hallway and alfresco bar area was a beautiful sight for sore (weary and tired) eyes.
The room was lovely with a king bed, lounge area and well equipped mini bar and bathroom. All rooms overlook the pool with an option of a room with your own semi private (as it is shared with others on that level) pool. Room service and dining in house was obviously more expensive then typical street eats but delicious and plentiful. I highly reccommend any of the Pizzas, the Reuben Sandwhich and the Banana Republic Mocktail!
The room was serviced adequately and for those lazy days where leaving the room after 2pm occured, a quick phone call ensured our room was serviced upon return.
The pool is wonderful and large with lounge chairs a plenty and drink/food service to your chair (service was at times a little slow but understandable considering the amount of people ordering food/drinks at the swim up bar). The gym is well equipped, quiet and cool with cardio machines, assisted weight machines and free weights.
As the hotel is new and still under some construction there is slight noise during the day. This does make lying by the pool relaxing not completely blissful but not too much of an inconvenience. The hotel was also a short 10/15min stroll to Bangla Rd, Juncylon Shopping Mall and Patong Beach.
All in all, a great new, modern and friendly hotel with wonderful service staff and great hospitality! A wonderful (almost) two weeks at the Grand Mercure and we will definitely return on our next trip to Phuket.
