This is the second I stayed with Amari Orchid whereas I stayed in Ocean Tower last time, as the design for Ocean Tower rooms is quite chic, the open bathroom room behind the bed ! You may well enjoy if you travelled with your loved one. But for family, oh ... thats too open, though there iyou can slide down the wooden blind to divide. But good for Ocean Tower, is the unbeatable panaramic view for Pattaya city and the beach with ceiling to floor glass panel in the toilet and the balcony too! But this time, we stayed in Garden Wing, a more traditional layout of the room, but bad that no balcony. The lobby is so attractive to me, spacious, friendly environment and realxed atmosphere. One thing for garden wing, is there is no lift, as we stayed in Deluxe rooms which is on the top floor, everytime we got back to the room we need to walk up 4 floors. And the breakfast is very Amari standard, nice restaurant with open sitting.
But one thing I had to complain is the Wifi, as I booked with room with a loyalty program, the complimentary wifi within the room came to the booking. But sometimes, the wifi was really sucks, my iphone could always detect and login the wifi, but just cant do anything, even though checking of emails. Most of the times, I eventually turned to my 3G data instead of wifi.
Anyway Amari Orchid is a good hotel with clean room, very nice and large pool for family especially the nice Aquaerobics.
Dont bring so large and heavy luggage if you stay in Garden Wing, otherwise the porter would be quit...

Dear Gary Y,
Report response as inappropriate
Thank you for your review and it is great that you are able to provide feedback on both wings of the Hotel having now stayed in both.
I am pleased that you enjoyed the older charm of the Garden Wing lobby with its friendly relaxed atmosphere. My apologies for any inconvenience caused by not having access to lifts to reach your guest room floor.
I have asked the IT Manager to check the access points to investigate why the WiFi signal was inconsistent and would also like to apologise for this inconvenience.
It is nice to know your family enjoyed their stay and the pool and aqua aerobics activities.
We do look forward to your return.
