Hi There,
I was in Patong with partner and two kids in 2002. We stayed in the Patong tower - the tallest building on the whole island. This gave us fabulous views but of course wasn't the cheapest place. However, there was a hotel right next door which we nearly chose, as it was on of the best in the resort. It had a big pool and lounging area outside, but I can't remember it's name.
Please remember that Patong is NOT a quiet place. Best advice I can give is to choose a hotel with good private facilities so that you can escape if you want to. Nowhere is very far from the beach and shops. The Novotel is a great hotel and is probably 5 mins from the beach and 10 mins from the shops.

A HA!! I found it!
The hotel in question is the Patong Resort hotel. It is in the same grounds as the Patong Tower, and has a security barrier and guards (so is private). Try these websites...

It is probably 100 yards from the beach, so will hopefully not have suffered too badly from the Tsunami. The main road along the front will probably look a lot different no than it did when I went.
