Rooms have no soul. Staff are pleasant but utterly incompetent. Lots of smiling, agreeing & then nothing gets done. Sat in the restaurant & they've been discussing how to make a latte, all arguing about it in a clueless manner. Didn't bother making our room up yesterday; make up room sign was def on. At 4500THB for their most basic... More

I have stayed at this place due to a conference, and I must say I am deeply disappointed. The place is huge, well maintained from outside, and right next to the beach. But that's where the positive stuff stops and unfortunately they are not of any use to me. As a traveler, I needed a good night sleep and the... More

We had a great time at Dor-Shada in Na-Jomtien - the hotel is large, well-done, well-maintained, rooms are spacious, service is just OK. The beaches are wide, whitish sand although there were garbage remnants in the water - par for the course in the greater Pattaya area. Pricing was also attractive - and the best of all...hardly any other tourists...so... More

I stayed here for a short break. The hotel is about 15 to 20 minutes by car from South Pattaya so is a little off the beaten track in terms of access to bars, restaurants and shopping areas of Pattaya. The room I had was a suite and was extremely large. The bathroom had a large double sweater jacuzzi, shower,... More

Sometimes it is good to be a little away from the city. This hotel is very quiet and it feels like it is private. The room was spacious and balcony was really nice. We can see the sea, and swimming pool. Bar at the pool was good, batender was polite and swimming pool was clean. Food at restaurant was delicious.... More

I have been there 2 times and I can declare that this hotel largely needs to be renovated... We have been staying in the main building, having a main problem: the carpeting that probably hasn't been changed since the hotel opened...A very unpleasant smell emanatting from it! Ask for the ground floor where the smell is alright, but in the... More

The hotel has interesting design and located right on the beach. Those are the only 2 stars I would give them. Construction next door (not their fault) makes me more susceptible to other things, such as very rundown, neglected feeling of the property. The reason I'm still here is that the room hasn't been cleaned yet, so I can't even... More

Stayed at the Dor-Shada for business reasons two times this year. Neither time was very notable. Hotel is rather removed from other places. Room is clean and bed is comfortable but there are not any nice touches to the room. Breakfast buffet is mediocre. Not much choice and no omelete station. Pastries are horrible. Beach is so so. Nice pool... More

Hotel has interesting architecture of office building, a beautiful swimming pool with jacuzzi areas closed bushes, good service and food. The wait staff is extremely polite and eager to please all guests. Located near the city Pattayya only 20 minutes by tuk-tuk. Not far from the hotel on the beach local merchants will offer fish, fruit, beer, beverages and boil... More
