Stayed here twice; and would switch to the Marriott in Pattaya for my next stay.
New hotel, less than a year old; great design concept but the construction and finish is already starting to look scuffed and show its age.
First off - the pool is awesome. Its a saltwater infinity pool that looks over the bay. Beautiful sunsets.
Some Pro's & Con's from my recent stays:
- Fantastic location above the Central Mall - choice of Cinema's, Restaurants ,etc without leaving the hotel.
- Nice design concepts in the lobby and the bar area.
- Hot water takes ages to come through.
- Multiple 2-way switches throughout the room are confusing.
- Towels a bit ratty.
As for other comments from travelles:
a) Yes, there are a lot of "sexpats" and "professional ladies" in Pattaya... along with the whole industry that supports this lifestyle. Don't plan a "family vacation" here if it bothers you.
b) Staff Attitude - this depends on you look as well. If you look well dressed and smart, you get treated well. If you look scruffy.... same-same.
