We spent about 10 days here. Really nice hotel with big pools and located next to the beach. Friendly staff. Near from everything, shops, Bengla Street, shopping malls, beach. I would totally come back!

The resort is quite large, with multiple unheated pools. Unfortunately the room we were given was tiny and remained dark all day. That, coupled with noisy air con and limited TV, made staying in the room unpleasant. The gym is small with dodgy equipment. They have an odd system of having to return pool towels by 7pm, instead of just...

This is a nice comfortable hotel, but not a luxury hotel. The staff are great and helpful. This hotel has 4 large pools that are very clean and there is waiter service for all pools. You can eat in the gardens on a deck if you want. The hotel is undergoing renovations but these should not interfere with your holiday.

Stayed with a large group of us for 12 nights and found that with so many pool options you never felt crammed in. Rooms are very similar to other resorts we have stayed at in Patong. Cleaning staff were great and did extra cleaning when we had some sickness in the group. Staff around food outlets were not as friendly...

A 10 day stay at this hotel at the southern end of Patong (beach), I enjoyed the facilities including four pools but there are so many areas of improvement needed. Located near the beach (walk across the road), and 10-15 mins walk to Jungceylon Mall and Bangla Rd. The room was a good size and comfortable, I had a pool...

We have been to Thailand numerous times before and have stayed in many hotels in and around patong and karon. Patong Melin was our least favourite of them all. As this accommodation was part of a holiday package, We regret booking this deal. Upon arrival staff were rude and not welcoming, then asked for a $200AU cash deposit. Checked into...

We stayed here over the Christmas and New Years and found the hotel quite good, pleasant staff and plenty of pool space to enjoy. The hotel was nice if a bit tired in parts, internal corridors within the accommodation blocks could do with sprucing, lifts have no air con, general wear and tear however could not fault the staff who...

I visited Patong Merlin for a family holiday with a baby. The staff were very friendly and loved babies. The hotel is surrounded by mountains in the distance and has several beautifully maintained pools. Our delux room connected directly to a pool, with a couch on the patio, perfect for always having that "special spot" by the pool reserved just...
