    Location 7.18 /10

    At the end of the beach, in the southern extremity of Patong, the busiest beach in Phuket. It takes around 45 minutes to go to the airport (22 miles).

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    With a total of 379 rooms and 7 suites (4 junior, 2 executive and 1 presidential), the Patong Merlin does not provide intimacy. All rooms are oriented in the same way, with view of the internal space of the hotel and its pools. It is a good thing, considering that the external environment of the hotel is not particularly seducing. Each room has a small private balcony. The soundproofing is not perfect, the furniture or the fitted carpet show the years and the decoration seems quite minimal; however, the place is nice, with a fair area and most of the basic facilities. Plus: free tea and coffee set in all rooms.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1985, the Patong Merlin Hotel is composed of six buildings of three or four floors, distributed in U-shape around a vast central space dotted with coconut trees, where there are three nice swimming pools. Two of these six buildings were renovated last year. At the hotel entrance, the lobby dotted with imposing columns displays the warm colours of wood; vast and well-ventilated, it favours relaxation. An open air terrace extends behind the complex, facing the beach. Every evening (except when it rains) a copious buffet is organised there.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    Standard service: apart from the usual breakfast buffet, the three restaurants of the Patong Merlin, all a la carte, offer a gastronomic range with no big surprises, where the unmissable of the Thai cuisine (spicy soups, stir-fry rice or noodles, etc.) and the classics of international cuisine are blended together. You can choose to eat either in a place with air conditioning or outdoors. Every evening, the outdoor buffet offers a large choice of seafood and grilled food, occasionally livened up by a small traditional music show. During the day, you can opt for more rough and ready meals from one or the other of the three snack-bars of the hotel.

    Beach 7.20 /10

    By the Andaman Sea, Patong public beach extends on the back side of the Patong Merlin, separated from the hotel by Taweewong street, an average size but busy street. Busy all year and especially in high season -winter months-, Patong Beach is not really a relaxing place. The number of beach chairs to be rented is high here. However, lovers of active holidays will find an important offer of any kind of water sports (a fee is required). The quality of the water and of the sand is satisfactory, and the beach level will pleased swimming lovers. 12,5

    To know

    From the hotel, a free shuttle serves Phuket Town three times a day, on the east coast of the island (around 15.5 miles). In addition, a doctor from Patong goes to the hotel every morning to ensure one hour of medical service from 6am to 7am. Then, the nursery takes over, from 11am to 7pm. The hotel has a children's play area, but no supervision is ensured. A free beach towel service is offered all day long.

      The Bayshore Patong is a small town hotel with no pretension. Its appeal is its location at the heart of the seaside resort of Patong.

      • Location 4.89

      Despite its location making it susceptible to a fair bit of traffic noise, the Seaview Patong is nevertheless a perfectly pleasant place to stay. Admittedly, though, it's hard to relax and soak up the sun with all the cars passing nearby. One thing for sure is that the staff here are fantastic and go out of their way to ensure that guests get the most out of their holiday. You'll find a lot of couples staying here, which isn't surprising since there are no facilities that cater for children.

      Guests at the rather original La Flora Patong are likely to be surprised by what they find, particularly as far as the architecture and the swimming pool are concerned, with the latter lying at the centre of the complex. Its location at the heart of the lively tourist resort of Patong undoubtedly makes it best suited for partying couples than families.

      • Value for money 6.74
      • Location 7.67

      Like a person's face reveals the passage of time, so you can see hints that the Baumanburi is starting to feel the weight of the years. However, its buildings are well maintained and its facilities are not that old: the oldest dating from 2001 and the most recent from 2007. When looking at the paintings on the wall in reception though, which are not exactly frightening but which are definitely a little disconcerting, you'll definitely get the feeling that the hotel could use a facelift. This being said, the young clientele doesn't seem to be disturbed by such factors and is instead vey content with the location of the hotel, just 5 minutes on foot from Bangla Road.

      The buildings that compose the Phuvaree were definitely not built yesterday. However, the hotel only started to operate under this name in 2009. It doesn't offer much in the way of facilities, but remains a decent establishment nevertheless, offering a good level of service. Its location is, unfortunately, not ideal. It stands on a busy road and the surrounding area is not very attractive due to the numerous construction sites. However, the Phuvaree is a perfectly pleasant establishment, run by friendly and attentive staff.

      The Sala Phuket was definitely one of our favourite hotels in Phuket. This splendid establishment is a true haven of peace, both in terms of its architectural qualities and in terms of the tranquillity it offers. It's the perfect love nest for couples, but the hotel also welcomes children, although there is no entertainment on offer. The standard rooms, called the Balcony Rooms, intentionally come in limited numbers. This is for good reason, as it would be a shame to come here without enjoying the superb villas with their private pools. The Sala Phuket opened in 2008 and has many successful years to look forward to!
