Just returned from 15 nights at the Patong Merlin with family, this was our second stay at this hotel, and fourth at a Merlin. It was perfectly adequate, nice room (in new block) clean room and perfectly located, and we did have free wi-fi in our room this time, but we did find a few things less than great this... More

We have just retuned from our stay of 14 days at the Patong Merlin Hotel. The rooms were comfortable with everything in good working order. I really commend the cleaning staff who kept our rooms spotless and were very friendly. We did wish to take up the offer of a room upgrade which the reception manager advised us could not... More

The resort covers a full block on the south side of Patong. We stayed in a deluxe room, overlooking one of the four swimming pools. Room was of average size, but comfortable. Nice bathroom with separate shower and bath. Matrass of the bed was very good, not hard, but firm. All expected amenities were provided and the room was clean.... More

We had a very enjoyable 8 night visit staying in one of the original rooms that have not yet been upgraded. Still good size, comfortable and clean room. Very good pools for the family groups, good breakfast and friendly staff. Really good location straight across from the beach. We travelled as a couple and there a probably nicer hotels in... More

Spent 2 glorious weeks here. Our room was clean and tidy. Beds comfy. I had a basic room but thats all we needed. Was only in the room to shower and nap. My friends upgraded to poolside and their room was awesome. Hung out down there. Steps right outside there door into the pool. Swim across to the pool bar... More

We have just returned from a 10 day stay. Loved it. Perfect location. We upgraded when we arrived otherwise we wouldn't have had interconnecting rooms but it was worth it. The setting of the pools with the tropical surrounds was amazing. So close to great restaurants, shopping and the beach.

Myself and 2 teenagers 18 and 15 had a great time at this hotel. Upon entering room there was a letter offering to upgrade for small fee, but room was 4401 and we had a view of two pools plus breakfast area, right near lobby, and we know that you shower and sleep in room so didn't change rooms.

Weve stayed here many times before but not again. For the money we paid I expect much more for example wifi is not free in the rooms. If you want wifi in your room it's super expensive. Free wifi in the mosquito infested lobby only. Todd who is one of the pool staff was extremely rude when he saw us... More
