“Great hotel for the price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I have been coming to this hotel every year with a golf group for many years. Recently it has undergone a facelift, both in the reception area and the bedrooms. Just two floors are left to be done, but those that have are now very nice - for instance doing away with showers over the bath and now stand alone showers. The buffet breakfast is excellent, catering for a variety of tastes, both western and Asian.
The location is great, right on the beach - although the beach at Pattaya is nothing to write home about.
Best thing about the hotel is the value for money. I don't think I know of a 5 star hotel which offer so much for so little. The only criticism I have has been raised by another reviewer, and that is the lifts are hopeless.

Room Tip: The nicest rooms are those with a seaview

The outstanding features of this hotel are its good service, tropical setting, yet still being ideally located, making good value at 2,400 Bahts per room per night inclusive of breakfast, service and taxes. Its drawbacks are the two slow lifts, poor bedroom air-conditioning, low quality mattresses, ants in the room and absence of internet connection except in common areas (free).

I stayed two nights. The Executive Assistant Manager appeared during check-in to welcome us back and upgraded us to a sea view room. Check-in was quick without excessive form filling. We were not required to make a further "security" deposit or sign a blank credit card slip. To the hotel: “A big 'Thank You' for not introducing this offensive policy.” On our day of departure, we were allowed to use room our room till well after standard checkout time and enjoy its facilities .

Our room was attractively designed, the television set provided many interesting channels. Water, tea, coffee and kettle were provided (free), as are many other beverages and snacks (not free!). A complementary bowl of fruit arrived, as did a cake on my wife’s birthday. However the once-beautiful view is now marred by the gaudy new hotel in front. The guest does not have effective cooling control via the air-conditioner dial – hotel management over-ride the cooling centrally: our comfort and sleep were badly affected, tolerating an actual room temperature of about 29 degrees and setting our dial to 15 degrees was useless; we complained to the engineers who returned guest control, however a change of shift(?) removed it again: our cool room didn’t last.

Breakfast was wonderful. The buffet spread is plentiful and available till 11am. Seating is available either indoors or out in the lovely tropical setting. Newspapers are provided.

I recommend this hotel for its unbeatable atmosphere, service, setting and location. I will stay here again.

Dear Yodsamud,

Thank you for your recent stay here at our hotel.

We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay with us in general but would like to apologize that your stay was not 100% enjoyable.

Internet issue is going to be solved soon as we are currently changing the whole system so for your next visit you should be able to enjoy a good connection in your room.

We are constantly changing our mattresses and also for this year will continue to do so.

We will take up the issue with the air condition and ants with our departments concerned and see how we can change it. Ants wise we are working together already with a company who regularly check our rooms / facilities and we will consult with them.

Nevertheless we look forward to welcome you back again soon and wish you until then all the best.

Kind regards,

The Siam Bayview has been our preferred hotel in Pattaya for the past 20 years. It has everything that we would possibly want in a resort hotel. And more. From the beginning, it was the managers of the hotel who made our stay extremely special, starting with Khun Orachorn, (who now manages the sister hotel--an exclusive 21 room hotel called the wave which is right in front of our Bayview hotel and is striking in its Tiffany green colours and the pink Cadillac parked outside). Mr Nijjaporn came in next followed by Hlger Groninger, the current general manager--an extremely affable person whois always on call and has been so warm and accommodating with us.

We have always had sea facing rooms, and lying in bed you feel you are in an ocean liner! The lobby has a fresh wonderful ambience, open both ends, and we love the snooker room cum bar cum library, again open and welcoming.

The breakfasts are a delight, and there are always new additions of Japanese, Indian and local cuisines.

The pool with its champak trees around is our favourite hangout.

The shops are easily accessible, and the beach front now cleaned up is also easy to walk across to.

We've tried other hotels but can never deviate from The Bayview.

Rita and Kishore Bhimani

Room Tip: A high floor is recommended and naturally a sea facing room is ideal

This is our favorite place to stay in Pattaya.
Almost everything is in high standards except pool activities.
Pool attendants spend most of the time try to sell some food and drinks to customers.
It is clear sign at the pool: NO JUMPING, NO SWIM IN UNDERWEAR.
Pool attendants don't stop people from jumping or swimming in underwear.
Indian tourists probably can't understand English and jump to the pool wearing an underwear, make other tourists around the pool very unhappy.
Indian tourists coming in a big groups. Hotel Management can make posters and give them to group leader with hotel rules in Hindi language which solve this problem very quickly.
Otherwise this hotel is highly recommended

We just stayed at the hotel during the Music Festival in Pattaya. We booked a standard room with the view to the city. Perfect for the price we paid, good value for money. Room big enough, air condition cooling well and the service and the smile we got from the staff was unbelievable. Internet in the room was a small issue but we were informed that the new internet will be ready beginning of April. Breakfast had everything (think we gained some weight). Location is very useful as it is in the center of Pattaya, close to Central Shopping Mall.
Thank you Bayview staff to make our holiday a very special one. Will definitely come back and recommend.

Room Tip: we asked the staff to have a look at the suites. WOW, saw the Theme Suites. WOW WOW WOW. So now have...

2 nights stay at The Bayview is the great vacation for me. Nice location which is the central of Pattaya. Beach is just across the road. Great value for money that you pay with a reasonable price. Breakfast is quite good and various food. Room was nice and clean. If, I have time "Bayview" is the one that remind me.
