We stayed at The Patong Merlin Hotel over Christmas and New Year 2015 to 2016 arriving on Christmas Day.
The staff greeted us with a seat at reception to check in and a cold drink which was nice.

Our room was in Block 7 which was very quiet and away from the noise of The Hard Rock Hotel. I would recommend requesting this by email which is what I did and they were pleased to help.
That is if you don’t like noisy music late at night from the Hard Rock Hotel next door.

The room was spacious and the bath and shower were fairly new as was the room so we were pleased. The bed was very comfortable and the air-conditioning was great so we slept very well.

As we were mainly diving we needed to be up early most mornings so this was important to us.

The staff were very friendly, some spoke more english than others.

We never had a problem finding room around one of the 4 pools on the days we were there and the food was very good when we ate at the hotel. Its a perfect place for someone that wants to be near the nightlife and the beach, but it is very manic once you get out into Patong so it was nice to be able to find the peace back at the hotel.

The only noise that we suffered was from a group of lads that were a stag party who got a bit drunk one day around the pool. But this is a party town so it will attract partygoers.

The hotel put on an amazing New Year Party for all the hotel guests for free. The food was unlimited, all you had to pay for was your drink. They were dressing up the hotel for a few days before and setting up a stage and the show they put on was brilliant.

Ii is quite an experience seeing the New Year in here as there were thousands of Chinese Lanterns floating across Patong as well as all the fireworks from every hotel which went on until about 3am.

The hotel is large enough to accommodate every one and it never really seemed crowded. You are literally in walking distance to everything unless you are a diver.

In which case you get picked up from your hotel and driven to the dive boats about 30 mins away.

The free wifi here was very good in reception with lots of comfortable sofas to sit in, but in the rooms the wifi dropped out a lot.
Please see my photos to appreciate the size of the hotel and the room and pools.
