We visited this hotel during the Kesari FT tour to Pataya-Bangkok-Thailand from 10-Nov-13 to 16-Nov-13. We stayed here for 3 nights. Hotel has a spacious room with balcony to enjoy the sea. Beds were very comfortable for kids to sleep. Rooms were neat & tidy.
Breakfast was good with lots of variety. They have ample amount of space to have relax breakfast for their guest. Swimming pool is also there but unfortunately we didn’t get chance to enjoy it. Overall, it is a good hotel near sea.

overturned old Furama Jomtien (the name that local people are familiar with in case red car taxi drivers are confused by its new name) lobby condition is average, however room condition is below average. Hotel amenities are primitive, feel overused. No free wifi is provided. Breakfast has some varieties of Thai food and somewhat other Eastern and Western.

Jomtien beach is quiet, along the beach street at the back of the hotel is a dead trail comparing to Pattaya main beach near the notorious Walking Street.

Choose other place if you are looking for a lively surrounding.

Room Tip: all rooms' balconies are facing beach front, but seriously Jomtien beach view is not a sight for sore eyes (or maybe it is literally)

Furama Jomtien (that's how this was called when we visited), has excellent rooms with a view.
The rooms are spacious enough even though the balcony was quite small.
The pool is good and the happy hour deals are great. If you talk nicely and tip the barman, you can get happy hour deals anytime of the day ;-)

The breakfast buffet is good with a huge range of options. A few more healthy options wouldn't hurt though. We did not try the menu options as there were a plenty of street vendors selling a wide range of exotic dishes around.

The massages were very expensive and you don't get much. We found some nice massage parlours just outside of the hotel that provided an excellent service for a much cheaper price.

I would highly recommend this hotel and wouldn't hesitate staying there again.

OK, happy travelers, here's a quiz for you: how do you build a hotel and give EVERY room an ocean view?

The answer is, only build half a hotel!

And that's exactly what the D-Varee chain has done at Jomtien, and it works great. The hotel is a massive, modern, 38-story concrete edifice that glistens in the Thai sunlight. I'd give it a solid 3-star rating; it's not the Ritz Carlton but for a family hotel it does great.

Built in the shape of a crescent, curving away from the ocean, every room actually does have an ocean view. From the ocean-side, it looks like a giant white ear of corn, because every room as it's own private curving balcony. It's when you step off the elevator that you are surprised -- because instead of a long hallway to your room, it's another balcony. Hanging off the back of the hotel, 30+ stories in the air. It was such a surprise it took my breath away.

Lets get down to some of the details:

First, Jomtien Beach is NOT Pattaya Beach. Pattaya Beach is crowded, tacky, dirty and squalid. Jomtien Beach is a place Disney would go... relatively clean, uncrowded, and much more family-oriented. If you're looking for sordid night life, this is NOT the hotel for you.

This also means you're in for a drive. The Pattaya Bus Station is 2 hours southeast of Bangkok (Emakai station). Jomtien Beach is about 30 minutes south of the Pattaya station, by taxi. If you're driving to a hotel in Pattaya, you can ride on a jitney with 10 of your friends, but it will take a while to get to your hotel. I paid 300 baht for the ride, private car to Jomtien, each way, so I guess that's the going rate.

The hotel is set back from the street, and there's a handsome pavilion to walk you back from the ocean to the hotel. In the front of the hotel (street side) on this pavilion is a handsome bar with live music at night. There's also an eye-popping swimming pool. And it's also where breakfast is served. You'll like it!

There also is ANOTHER swimming pool, on the 5th floor. It's even nicer than the first-floor pool, and less crowded. I spent some significant time with the bartender there and we did well. Happy hour is from 1-3 pm, buy-one, get-one-free beer. Does it get any better than that?

The neighborhood is fine. Relatively clean, well-served with jitney busses (20 baht for a ride up the beach), and numerous restaurants and pubs. Take care on the sidewalks -- like most of Thailand, smooth sideways are rare. Signs and menus are in English, Thai and Russian. In fact, you're going to think your in Little Moscow, because all the voices you hear will be Russian, and maybe a smattering of Chinese. As an English-speaker, I was clearly the odd man out.

Checking in was a snap; service was fast and efficient. The room is fine but nothing great; moderately large, with a great balcony, an OK bathroom, and a luggage rack. The flat-screen TV has 70 channels, so you'll definitely have something to watch. The big thrill is hanging out on the balcony. Bring some wine or a beer... it's that much fun.

Now there are a few problems. The hot water is provided by "instant-on" water heaters, and it never gets really hot. There maybe a way to crawl under the sink and adjust this, but I never bothered. It was OK.

The hotel does not have free WIFI. What's up with that? It's the 21st century for heavens sake! Actually, their wifi is expensive... so look for coffee shops instead.

There are not enough elevators, and sometimes they cancel themselves and don't pick you up. We also had one that went down and started back up without ever taking us to the lobby. So we rode around a bit... more amusing than annoying.

The breakfast buffet is huge, but not terribly varied. It's just a great way to feed about a zillion people every morning. It's in two rooms and outside... I always sat outside and fed the birds. You won't go hungry but the coffee sucks.

Overall, this hotel was an unexpected delight. I paid US$70 a night, breakfast included, and would go back anytime. It was that nice.

Room Tip: Get as high as you can... the view is worth the elevator ride.

I been there 2trips in this hotel. First time, I was in the old room on 30th floor and horrible atmosphere. The Bath room was bad, I can't open the door while I was in the room, lot of smell!
2nd time, I staying here and they charging expensive wifi but other hotel is free! Remember that if your room was upgraded by them, you will not have complimentary water in your room. You need to give a signature for get in pool area. Many instructions here, there are so annoyed.

Only one thing I impressed is staff, they are great!
