Start your day with a visit the Coconut Coffee shop where you can enjoy a hearty buffet breakfast and later stop by here for Asian and international favourites sure to please every palate.

Just right

Harlow, United Kingdom

This hotel is set in a super place in patong,2 mins from a atop market for food,next door to the Hard Rock Cafe,hooters,access to the beach,and 15 mins walk to bangler walking street.the hotel is clean an the gardens are well looked after,all the staff are so friendly and helpful,the rooms are nice if a little dated,it was nice to have a shower and a bath in the room. Inside the grounds of the hotel it was quiet and relaxed.two negatives,the price of drinks at the pool/bar (use happy hours)and the deposit when checking in.apart from this it was as good as it gets

Nice hotel for a perfect vacation

Copenhagen, Denmark

We just spend 2 weeks at Patong Merlin hotel for our second honeymoon vacation. All the good stuff: We were greeted welcome as soon as we arrived with a cool drink and a cool cloth. Our room was ready though we arrived early. When entering our room the bed was decorated with flowers and towels made as swans - a fruit basked was there for us to enjoy. We entered a clean and ok room with a big and comfortable bed which was not as hard as many hotel beds in Thailand are so we slept very good. After unpacking we went for a small sightseeing in the gardens and pool area only to see that everything was beautiful maintained and well kept. We tried all the pools only to find that we had chosen the right hotel in Patong. The breakfast was fine with a good selection of food for everyone though I will call their coffee for "coffee light" as it was not very strong. They have not yet invented sliced cheese but there was some good cheddar. The staff was always smiling and helpful. This goes for all the staff - going from reception to the cleaning staff. There were not many downsides to mention from our visit but it should be mentioned that the drinks in the pool bars has nothing to do with the recepies drinks should be made after. We tried a few e.g. Pina Colada and they were more limonade than drinks - almost no alcohol and not made right. The prices - 190 bath per drink was much too expensive for what you got. One day I ordered a bottle of water for which they charged 65 bath. Many previous reviews have written about this and everytime the coments from the hotel has been - we will look into it - but it seems that"look into it" only resulted in - we keep the prices. We also ordered lunch a couple of times with the same result - tasteless and with too high prices. Better priced and real drinks we would have spent much more here. Instead we went outside for lunch and drinks. The hotel location however is just perfect. It is in the quiet end of Patong but in walking distance to all the nightlife and shopping. The beach is just outside the hotel. Will we stay here again ? This is a sure yes. But we will not buy anything from the bars if the quality and prices do not change. We are frequent Thailand travelers and Patong Merlin was our 12th visit to Thailand. Patong Merlin is ranged among our top 5 hotels. See you again in 2021
