We recently stayed for 9 days in a pool access room, very relaxing with easy access to the swim up bar (which according to literature closes 9pm but was earlier while we were there, so was never an issue). Location of this hotel is great. Markets one side, beach the other, surrounded by massage places and restaurants, easy stroll to... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in May and luckily we got a free upgrade to one of the new rooms overlooking the pool. The other rooms look very tired and in need of a facelift. Our room was clean and had a good size bathroom, we also had a balcony that overlooked the pool area which was nice. The... More

Fantastic location close to the beach, shopping, restaurants Recommend sea hag restaurant , great value and beautiful authentic Thai cuisine. Staff at breakfast very nice and welcoming. i would recommend the deluxe wing as it is newly renovated compared to the supreme wings although the supreme rooms are nice enough

Stayed for 10 nights end of April. The complex comprises two areas, the main area with rectangular multi level rooms looking into a very large central area of pools and vegetation. There is also an adjacent area that has a pool in which you can swim up to your balcony if on the ground level. One entrance is directly to... More

Had a fabulous time here, had our own Pool Access Room, the staff were fantastic, the food was marvellous, only minutes from Bangalo Street by Tuk Tuk, and just across the road from the beach. Would highly recommend the Patong Merlin Hotel, and would definately stay there again.

The Patong Merlin was located in an ideal spot at the bottom end of the beach with the front of the resort accessing instant shopping, places to eat, Chemist, family marts and almost anything else you may be needing. Transport at the door step. The rear of the resort has bar and restaurants available with street access to the beach... More

Our fourth stay here recently, and still love it. For us the location is perfect. Right in the middle of patong, yet on the edge as well. A short walk to everywhere, with seven 11, pharmacy, markets and restaurants at the door steps. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Pools great. For value for money you can't beat it.
