Reviewed June 5, 2013

Travelled with friends. Its away from the main city centre and if the hustle and bustle of Pattaya nightlife is what tickles your fancy, then definitely isnt in the midst of it. Though the main area is quite accessible with a number of shared songthews that come to the hotel for a pick-up. Getting back isnt too difficult....you need to sharpen your haggling skills and speak a smattering of Thai!

Good beach side resort...good food...and great views of the ocean

Room Tip: Stayed on the beach level floor

Just on the outskirts of the main strip, so this is a bit more isolated than the Hilton, but the serenity was great, infinity pool with a private beach and lots of sunbaking, very affordable for the longer stays with a bar in the pool, entertainment on the weekends. Great because you were allowed to go for night swims as long as you didnt make too much noise. Room onto the pool a must, open the doors and you go for a dip - fabulous, I loved it.

Room Tip: definitely recommend the rooms with pool access. One on the end are the best as you can access your...

I booked this hotel through the internet and wanted to have a quiet day at the beach with my two children.
The hotel is not very close to any entertainment and if you look for nights out this is not the place to stay.
As the name says this is next to cliffs and the beach is separated from the main beach by rocks and private properties.
We got an upgrade on arrival and I was pleasantly surprised when entering the room. The rooms are very well maintained and reminded me of stays in Hyatt or Marriott in Hua Hin.
Very nice.

We went for lunch into the cliff side restaurant which was empty. We received a russian menu and when I mentioned that I do not speak russian they gave me a western menu. No thai food.
The service though was excellent and the food delicious as well.

The hotel area is not very special. The lobby area looks nice and is warmly decorated. The pool area with apartments (around 9 floors I would say) is average.

We went to the beach and from the beach side the hotel needs renewal. The stairs are under maintenance and the beach is dirty to say the least. Next to the hotel is a big construction site but hey: nothing they can change about this. And it is not noisy.

I would not really return to this but also would not say that the stay was unpleasant. Just not exactly what we were looking for.

This was a pleasant stay for me and my friend, who wanted a couple of days away from the big city. We paid a bit extra for a 'pool access' room on the ground floor, which made all the difference to our stay. It was so nice to be able to jump into the pool directly from our own private patio. The 'private beach' is tiny, and didn't seem to be being used by anybody, but the pool was enough for us, in any case. The inside of the room itself was of a decent standard. I wouldn't say it was wonderful, but it ticked most of the right boxes. They had a reasonably-stocked mini-bar, and the pretty much standard 32-inch LCD TV. Breakfast was good, and included in the price, with a large variety of food to choose from. The location wasn't a problem for us, as we had a car, but I could see how it might be an issue for people not wanting to walk for long in the Pattaya heat. Staff were very helpful and accommodating.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more for a pool access room.

I booked this hotel because I planned to have a nice relaxing weekend in Pattaya. The hotel is located in Naklua Soi 16 and approximately 1.2 kms away or so from the main road. The promotion signs inside the hotel are in Russian. So no need to say more about the majority of the guests.

The hotel itself is ok and the room is quite nice. The view is also nice but nothing really special about it compared to the price we paid. The bar at reception area is nice and the staff are very friendly. However, there are thousands of mosquito at night ready to eat you alive. The singers are great and we quite enjoy it. They have "beer bucket" promotion starts at 10 pm for 300 something Baht which is quite cheap for a hotel like this.

My conclusion is I won't be back again. This hotel is good for one time experience but nothing special about it at all. Breakfast is good though.

Please vote "helpful" for my review and photos if you find this info is useful to you. Thank you very much.

landscape was good because of locating near ocean, but the transportation was not that good. Swimming pool, front, and the room was OK, but the massage shop was insufficient. It's good to come with family.
