"Fantastic Family hotel" Patong Merlin Tip by Shrekanddonkey

Patong Merlin, Phuket: 1,446 reviews and 14 photos

Rooms were fantastic. Great location, not far from the beach, or Bangla Street. Across the road we found great little markets off the main drag and found that they were cheaper, than along the main road . 2 fantastic located pools. Service very nice when we first got there as they served us with icey cold drinks, and after the ride from the airport it was well needed. Great buffet breakfast, and if you could not find a nice restaurant to eat at, the buffet nights at the hotel were generally very good with great service, and explosive cocktails. This hotel has a bar over looking the beach which was great and happy hour with cheap drinks that were always icey cold. Doctor and dentist facilities. And the most amazing beautician service - pedicure/manicure with complete pampering cost approximately $15 Aussie dollars for the two. And the most UNFORGETTABLE was the massage service. Some people may complain a little bit more expensive than getting it on the beach, but you are treated as a king/queen on arrival and this continued whilst having the massage.

Unique Qualities: always very happy staff. EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN. Fantastic service. Beautician brilliant, and the massage service I am already missing after getting home after 3 days, (withdrawals ++++)
