Patong Merlin Resort, Phuket

Introduction

This 3-star resort has no less than 448 rooms, set in 7 buildings. To this writer’s jaundiced eye it resembles nothing so much as a battery chicken farm for human beings. The huge concrete buildings with their regimented rows and columns of cubby-hole sized rooms will wow no-one. The long, dim corridors in the innards of the buildings are rather depressing places – the resort was built before architects realised that holidaymakers don’t like hospital-style corridors buried inside the bowels of big buildings.

It’s places like this that cause many people to check out and go home early. The resort’s small but well equipped rooms are clean and pleasantly decorated. Whilst there is nothing special about these rooms, there is nothing objectionable about them either. The balcony loungers are in fact rather comfortable. The resort offers all the standard facilities to be expected of a family-orinted resort: spa center, kids club & gym room.

 

Accommodation

The Merlin offers 5 different room types.  The Superior rooms located on the top floors have decent views and are cheap, so can be recommended as good value for a night or two, just don’t stay long. The more expensive room types can’t make up for the resort’s outmoded design and architecture, so it isn’t worth paying more for them – if you have more money to spend, go stay elsewhere. Connecting rooms are available for larger families.
