ROOMS
The rooms are clean tidy and very good value for money. Brand new air conditioning, cable tv, DVD player, free wifi, Digital room safe, own wet room and fridge which has complimentary drinking water replaced daily. Rooms are cleaned daily with fresh towels and bedding.

STAFF
The staff are extremely friendly, nothing is too much trouble and are always willing to share a drink and a chat. Even if you travel alone, you won't be alone once you are there.
The owner is an English guy called Tony and is very friendly and helpful. He has a lot of amusing stories which he is not shy of telling when he takes you on bar crawls. This is very useful, especially if it is your first time in Pattaya and is also very good fun!

LOCATION
The Barracuda is 5-10mins from Walking Street via taxi (10 baht), 5 min walk from Drinking Street and of course you have all the local bars and restaurants on your doorstep.

BAR
The bar can be very lively, particularly on party nights, however the noise doesn't seem to travel to the rooms. There is an English chef who offers a massive range of food at reasonable prices.

I have stayed here many, many times and will again. I have never had a bad experience here. There may be better places to stay ion Pattaya but for the money (£16.00 per night) I doubt you will find better value.

Would highly recommend the Barracuda to anyone who wants a good room and extremely friendly staff to spend their holiday with.

Tony is a legend and is always happy to help and if your lucky get to go on a pub brawl with him and other people.

All the staff are excellent - from the never ending energy from Joy behind the bar to Lex who keeps your room spotless.Special mention to Ying and Tom who enjoyed getting more than tipsy with!!!

Had a fab time and look forward to coming back soon x

Hi Everyone.
Decided to go to thailand for the first time on my own, scary ?
Stay at the Barracuda bar in pattaya, secured my room via email to there website.
Tony who runs the Barracuda Bar, could not have been more helpful,
from sending a taxi to pick me up from BKK, to showing me around town on his day off,
giving insight into pattaya, and where to have a good time, beaches and all,
top man.
The rooms are lovely and clean,staff are friendly, helpful and always smiling.
Now doing food in the bar which is excellent, cooked by a british chef,
doing full English breakfast, whenever you want, sunday roast, and a great range of thai dishes.
Throughly enjoyed my stay there, would return there without hesitation.
Well done Tony, Great you have.

I would recommend this place to anyone going to Pattaya

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
At the Barracuda we want our guests to have a fun time and we strive to achieve this with every visitor we have. We are located in North Pattaya and we are on the direct Tuk Tuk route ( blue pick up trucks) so all Tuk Tuks that pass the bar all head straight into Central and South Pattaya for a cost of 10 Baht. There are many bars and restaurants close by and we guarantee if you stay with us we will make your stay a memorable one. Please check out our web site and Face book page so you can see for yourself just how much fun we have here at the Barracuda. We have (July 2014) refurbished all our en suite shower and toilet rooms we have also added 32inch wall mounted flat screen TVs to all our rooms in Feb 2016 we refurbished one of our Balcony rooms and has now been enhanced to rival any 3 star establishment due to reviews concerned about noise we have also added double glazing to this room, our other VIP Room now has a 50inch wall mounted flat screen and its own true visions satellite system. The Barracuda Bar has also been refurbished to give it a more up to date feel this was done July 2015. As some of our reviews have stated we are a place to have fun and Party, we are not a quiet get away from it all stay on the beach all day and go to bed at 9pm type of place if this is what you are looking for then we might not be the place for you but to be honest Pattaya is not for you either, if its fun fun fun you want and a holiday you will never forget then book a room with us and that is exactly what you will get. ... more   less
