We have just got back from our 3rd visit to the patong Merlin. We went for 6 day's had a lovely time as alway's. The hotel has gone under some renovations for the better, the showers are much better rooms look a lot nicer, but still outdated furniture in the rooms. The rooms are very clean the staff do a very good job and if you need any thing you just have to ask and its done for you. The 4 pools are great as usual , we like the 3rd pool near the beach end, its got plenty of shade and tropical, plenty of sun lounges to sit at and not over crowed. On a morning you get a buffett breakfast, i must say this time around wasn't as good though, the breakfast variety only changed by 2 things, it would have been nice to see baked beans more only had them once in 6 days, the food is very dry variety, i think they need to re look at this and change it every day. The egg station is very good you can have your eggs done as you like even a omelet cooked for you. At night for dinner you have a choice of restaurants to choose from, we like the cafe Del on the beach front, we had pizza one night then tried the burgers the following night very good and not expensive. They also have a buffett restaurant near the beach end, it does different theme dishes each night, we liked the seafood & barbecue night one, the others not too impressed with, but every one to there own .The buffett dinner cost 530 th-b that is cheap, drinks not too bad they are extra. The waitresses clean the dishes off the table as soon has you have finished with your plate very efficient and always a smile on there face. There is a good pool bar serves up good food cheap too have a happy hour at the pool bar. The room service was very good, we ordered a meal didn't take too long to arrive price were good and plenty of food. We have seen other hotels in patong, but i must say for the price and to have 4 pools even though furniture out dated in the rooms still think its one of the best to stay at, if we go again will definitely stay there again.
