If you need to save money on food why not use a cheaper hotel and save lots of money? Unless the hotel provides free transportation to Naklua Road you will be more at the mercy of paying extra to get anywhere if you are not a walker. Being in a more remote area has drawbacks.

Royal Orchid at 1100 baht is not that upmarket! (If this is one of the places.)

From Cape Dara walk to the Dolphin turn about. Restaurant on the corner is the Kiss Restaurant. Supermarket across from this restaurant. Also at the Big C Mall you have another supermarket. (For sandwiches and other snacks.) Big C has restaurants, no shortage of restaurants in Pattaya. Any place you walk by between Cape Dara and the Dolphin you have to evaluate if that place is sufficient for your particular tastes.

Cape Dara looks like a nice place but there are hotels better located for walking to things.

Since you have experienced Phuket beach areas - you won't get the same quality beaches in Pattaya. So if actually swimming at Pattaya Beach was something you had in mind most tourists don't do it! They do sunbathe, jog, shop, etc but use pools for wet stuff.

Look at the Pattaya map above. Locate North Pattaya Road and South Pattaya Road. In between those 2 main roads you have many things you can walk to. Where you see Central Pattaya Road on the map figure that is more central. In this area you have malls, movie theaters, nightlife, travel agencies for tours, street vendors, etc. Local transportation in this area is 10 baht. (Read up on baht buses.)

Dusit Thani is popular and near the Dolphin. Hard Rock Hotel is in a good location. The almost brand new Hilton Hotel is next to the big Central Festival Mall. The Marriott Hotel is a little older but popular and in a good location next to the Royal Garden Mall. If you need a 4 or 5 star hotel you can find them in Pattaya. But even "no star" hotels also have air conditioning, private bathrooms, TV's and maid service too.

Pattaya area may be bigger than you think! No problem finding restaurants in Pattaya. From the simple places serving fried rice for 35 baht to fancier restaurants selling meals that cost more than some of the cheap hotels with A/C and private bathrooms!

You can do a forum search for more restaurants.

Up to you!
