I was here for the New Year and we had a great time.
The room was what we expected, clean and everything worked.
The breakfast was good and the in house restaurants were good.
The hotel is within walking distance from the main strip in Pattaya.

I stayed her for 2 weeks in November '13.
I stayed in a pool view room which was a good size and very comfortable.
The food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
The staff were friendly.
The 2 fitness rooms were small but adequate.
The hotel is located on a busy soi but it is very quiet except for some construction work nearby

Room Tip: Ask for room away from construction

My partner and I booked this hotel at very short notice to meet up with a friend who was visiting from the UK, we were impressed.

As regular visitors to Pattaya we had walked past this hotel a number of times without really noticing it, but we will certainly return. To hotel in an ideal hotel for local nightlife and easy access to town via J-Village.

Very pleasant staff at check-in which was very seamless, we checked into the old wing not realising we were in the newer Evergreen wing, our bags were whisked away and we were taken to the other reception, were the seamless check-in carried on.

Our room was very nice, spotlessly clean and very comfortable.

Breakfast was one of the best I have had in Pattaya, the breakfast room was very busy but the staff coped very well. We also ate in the hotel on evening, not something we normally do, the food was of good quality and reasonably priced.

Two nice pools at the hotel but though there was a sign asking guests not to reserve loungers during extended periods of absence, this didn't seem to be enforced and on two occasions we were unable to sit by the pool.

I had read reports of female partners being challenged when returning to their room, something we encountered a few years ago in a multi national hotel in Pattaya, this was not the case here, we were both treated with courtesy when we entered the hotel.

The was reports of noise from building works nearby, we certainly saw building works but we were never disturbed.

All in all a very nice hotel with excellent and welcoming staff, we will most certainly return.

Room Tip: The rooms in the Evergreen Wing are newer and nicer.

Reception, very good,quick check in,staff very friendly.
Bedroom, Yes o.k. enough room,Big T.V.plenty of channels,all nationalities.Bath a bit small,bed like a rock,pillows the same,but very big bed.Water nice and hot though.
Restaurant, you can eat breakfast in both Restaurants,buffet style,in the front 06.30-09.30,at the back from 06.30-10.30.Staff very friendly and professional,good standard of food.
The Hotel has two swimming pools,two gyms,massage services,and an outside Bar.
Its close to everything you may need,Restaurants,Bars,Agogo's,exchanges,seven Eleven,laundry.
A short walk to the beach,and the main areas of Pattaya.
But beware?
Building work around the back swimming pool,from 08.00am-18.00,very disrupting,to relaxing around the pool. Not the Hotels fault,their building another Hotel,very close to the pool.
Not Areca Lodge. You can relax around the front pool in peace.
The noise should halt by 2015.

Room Tip: Good value for all the rooms.
