Me and my wife arrived 2nd March from the UK, for a 3 week stay , this is our 4th time staying at the Patong Merlin .
The last time we were here was March 2020 , just as the pandemic was kicking off, we managed a full holiday, but when we got home , the UK went into lockdown, and so did Thailand.
The hotel and staff are absolutely brilliant , the lovely buffet breakfast is fantastic, with so much to choose from.
Our room was lovely and spacious, which was kept spotlessly clean every day by the maid . The pool area brilliant, surrounded by coconut trees and greenery, you really do get the tropical feel.
All in all , we couldn't fault the hotel if we tried.
Many thanks to all the very friendly staff, for making our stay in Thailand a very memorable one.

Great location and staff. 4 Pools and a swim up bar. Great buffet breakfast. Short distance to Elephant sanctuary and Tiger Kingdom. Easy walk to Bangla and markets or the beach. Plenty of things to do around this location. Rooms a bit out dated but that will soon change.

We were not happy with the check-in . The lady the counter was not at all friendly and asked us to wait for more than an hour in spite of us reaching only around 3pm. She kept telling us that the room was not ready & only after 1 hour once she checked with some other colleague, she helped us to show 2 rooms, out of which we took one of the Rooms on 2nd floor. The Room was spic & span, though pretty small for 3Pax.
The pool was lovely with loungers lying all across, mostly occupied as this is a busy season.
This Hotel is located right opposite Patong beach, just 10mins walk to the happening Patong Market street.Excellent location to hop across the road and do some sports on the beach…
Overall a good place to stay if you want to enjoy the night life of Phuket.

Like most of the recent reviews on here, I have the same thing to say. The staff on the front desk are disinterested and rude. Once we checked in it became apparent that the staff had checked out due to the upcoming renovations. We paid about $350 per night for 10 days for a pool access room. No staff or cocktails available at the bar, pool dirty most of the time. Again, pool beds reserved every morning before 8am. Climate control air con to our room was set at a balmy 26 degrees - couldn’t control it. Had to end up asking for a fan as it was so god damn hot every day. asked to switch room, got a big fat no. Toilet exploded couldn’t use our room for 7 hours, asked to switch rooms, a big fat no. The saving glory of this pretty average experience was our beautiful house keeping lady. She came every day. Spoke with us, smiled at us and was pure joy. She walked away with a tip from us every single day and she deserved it. I wonder if all of the staff are just waiting for it to be closed for renovations and are losing their jobs? Anyway. Won’t be back.

Room tip: If you do stay here, spend the money and get pool access or you have no chance of getting a pool chair.

Great place to stay, great service, very nice people, great breakfast.
Close to all possible activities, shopping, night life, beach, good restaurants around, Hooters and Hard Rock Cafe, many transportation means, and very silent inside the hotel, many clean pools and lots of vegetations and birds. Recommend!

Room tip: It is a silent oasis surounded by many activities.
