On arrival at the hotel I was made to feel very welcome by the staff, I was able to check in early which was very convenient for me and I was pleasently surprised by the size and cleanliness of the room. The bed was comfortable and the room had everything you could require including a safe, hairdryer, flat screen tv with cable, fridge and mini bar, air conditioning (essential in a hot place like Thailand) and a powerful warm shower. I noticed that in a previous review that one guest had complained about the lack of towels, however this was not the case, there were plenty of towels in the room which were replenished with fresh towels daily.
The pool area is relatively small but a pleasent place to lay on a sunbed and relax. There is also a small bar area next to the pool which has a computer with free internet useage for guests. Again the bar staff are really kind and freindly. The location of the hotel is slightly out of the city centre of Pattaya (maybe 20-30 min walk) or 5-10 miniutes on a bhat bus. An additional bonus of the citing garden resort is that they offer complimentary mini bus in to town on the hour if you are unsure about the bhat buses. There is a big C shopping centre across the road from the hotel which is really handy if you dont fancy going all the way in to town.
In terms of dining at the hotel there is a selection of both european and Thai dishes on offer, all of which are very tasty and there are weekly bbq nights weather permitting. The cost of dining at the hotel is a little more expensive that if you went to a restaurant in town but by no means extortionate. Breakfast is a good selection of hot food, pastries, juices, tea and coffee etc.
If you are looking for a freindly hotel and are not too worried about staying right in the centre of Pattaya then this hotel is ideal. I was made to feel so welcome by everyone here and there seems to be a good atmosphere in the hotel. I am looking forward to returning to The Citin garden resort sometime.
