We stayed at the Patong Merlin for the second time as we like the location & the staff are so welcoming. Its close to the market, which is straight across the road, & to go to the beach you just have a short walk out the back door. The breakfast was a buffet style which catered for everyone & a... More

Average hotel, with great staff. Well located in Patong. Renovations are nowhere near completed and I don't think they will be finished this year. Happy Hour(s) are confusing, 2 hours at one pool, then 2 hours or so at another pool then 2 hours at the main bar. However ask the staff where it is now and you will be... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 10 nights in August. The pools were awesome with plenty of room. The buffet breakfast was outstanding. Reception wasn't too bad. But while we were there it was going under renovations (Still are). We thought we would've gotten a decent room but we ended up with an older room on the 3rd floor... More

I had stayed here a couple of years ago but when I came back this time things had substantially degraded. First off, the entrance and lobby were tore up (see photo)-something they neglected to mention on the hotel website. Next, the temporary lobby was just a function room with a few desks thrown in it. Management decided not to use... More
