“The most exceptional hotel in the land of smiles”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2007

My wife and I have recently returned from our tenth annual holiday at the Royal Cliff. Over the past 10 years we have stayed at all but one of the Resort Hotels and Dined at most of the restaurants

Service at the Royal Cliff is exceptional. The management and staff always willing to go that little bit further to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.

The award winning restaurants are of the highest standard. The swimming pools are exceptional, especially the main pool where the staff do far more than is usually expected.

The rooms are well maintained and serviced to the highest standard

We spent a most enjoyable 3 weeks at the Royal Cliff and have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

This is a good 4 star plus hotel with very well trained staff and a reasonable restaurant / room service tariff. The buffet breakfast is a bit expensive but well worth the experience on at least one of your days stay. A basic but acceptable 'roughing it' breakfast can be had for 1 US$ on the beach at Super Sams or you can have coffee and toast by the pool for 2 US$.
The rooms are getting a bit tired now but the management are in the process of refurbishing them. The DVD Player hire is expensive and for the price of one nights hire you can go to the supermarket Tesco Lotus and buy a DVD Player and then give it to the maid when you leave.
We like this Hotel which is value for money.

This is a large hotel complex, and so large that I think it becomes impersonal. It is a 10 minute ride from the main Pattaya area, which is the reason why we chose this hotel not wanting to stay admidst what Pattaya is famous for, however, on reflection, the location is the worst thing about this hotel. Hotel is divided into four main wings, and we stayed at the Beach hotel in a sea view deluxe room.

The rooms were large, clean and serviced on a daily basis with towel changes twice a day. A courtesy trolly takes you around the hotel, which is fast, efficient and regular.

There are a number of pools within the complex (access depends on which area of the hotel you are staying in), and three childrens pools which were fine, although I felt could have been cleaned more frequently.

The maids and room boy cannot be faulted for friendliness and work ethic, however, this was not replicated throughout the rest of the hotel and in particular the reception area, and the staff at the panoramic restaurant where each request was met with reluctance (warming of milk for the kids.

I really liked the food at the Maharani (Indian ) restaurant, and Larn Thong (Thai) and prices were similar to back home.

The hotel used to have a "secret staff" entrance which allowed you quick and easy access to other shops, restaurants etc etc however this has been sealed to prevent hotel guests from eating outside the hotel, which means that you are only able to use hotel limousines to leave the resort unless you pick up a baht bus which is dropping others off. It also means that you have to eat at the hotel which can become quite pricey and the breakfast in partucilar does not represent value for money.

We found another way to access the small number of shops and restaurants adjacent to the hotel through the beach but this invl;oves a lot of steps and a steep climb too. The beach area is very small but not that much of an issue for us, as it served a purpose.

It is primarily because of the location that I would not stay here again, althopugh it is a nice enough hotel.

In november 2006 we stayed for the 5th time in Royal Cliff in Pattaya. We only can say: it's a great experience to be there and to return there every year again. Everytime, when we travel around in Thailand, we return for the last 10-15 days to the Royal Cliff is like "coming home" again: the very friendly staff at the reception, the perfect rooms (mini seavieuw suite) the excellent swimmingpools and private beach, it's all of high standards. So are the many restaurants, the quality of the food, the service in the restaurants, and the beauty and cleaness of the total complex. For sure this has to be rewarded as a 5-star accomodation, that's our experience. We can advise everyone to go there and enjoy the beauty and great service of this resort. We sure will return this october/november again. For us, this is Paradise. And as experienced Thailand travellers (our first trip was back in 1974(!) we are sure that this is one of the toplocations in whole Thailend...! Our reward: 5+ stars...!!!

The hotel is okay (if you like pattaya), but the clientele is terrible: russians all over the place; and i mean: only russians! nothing against russians, but even the signs in the hotel are in their language.
I've heard that a thai family in russia has an exclusive contract to book all the russians in the Royal cliff (need i say more?).
At a gala they even walk in their swimsuites! You try to dress up for the party, but you look foolish!!
Food is okay, but not many thaifood choices.
Better is the grand spa, no russians and pre arranged sunloungers and a poolbutler.
Visitors of the royal cliff beach hotel are not allowed to use the other pools.
In the grand spa you are more private.
Look at the nearby Sheraton, totally different atmosphere.

The Royal Cliff Beach Resort is a complex of 4 Hotels,
The Grand
The Cliff
The Terrace
and the little known but magical Royal Wing.
As a guest at the 'Wing' you are able to use all the facillities of the Resort, but the 'Wing' remains exclusive to it's guest's.
Dont let this make you think your stay will be any less wonderfull at the other 3 Hotels, the service is second to none, the choice of restaurant is superb, The Grill Room being our particular favorite, and facilities to match or even better some of the top hotels around the world.
And then we have The 'Royal Wing'...which we have been staying at for 16 years now, and still we never fail to be impressed, from the moment you arrive, the Lobby staff with their smiles and warm welcome, and very comfortable check in, to the housekeeping staff welcome, and there amazing unpacking skills, (me being a Virgo i was blown away) .
Then onto the pool to cool off!...The team of pool butlers again so welcoming and happy to see all of there guests, and to take care of your every need, from straightening your towels to applying your suncream, nothing is to much trouble.
On that note, i can only say that the whole of your stay at the 'Royal Wing' will be a truly memorable experience and nothing would be to much trouble for your comfort.
We could go on for pages to tell you of so many other glorious things, but just experience it for yourself and be blown away.

Hi, friends
My husband and I have stayed at Royal Cliff hotel for our holidays, I really enjoyed the hospitality of the hotel with superb location, right in front of the sea and surrounded with beautiful tropical garden. Food & services are really first class, also the newly renovated rooms are lovely. We have spent a lot of time at the pool and Jacuzzi of the Cliff Club, we really love it there. Indeed we had good times and fantastic holidays.
