Best hotel in Pattaya or Jomtien Beach with 3 year old
You do see tourists with with children staying in cheaper hotels. Maybe that is the best they can afford, but they probably love their kids as much as you.
How much do you do you want to spend on this "BEST child friendly hotel?"
A few places show up when you use the forum search. Are you looking for a baby sitter? Sample forum search below.:
I think most any hotel will be okay for you. You may have to pay for a roll out bed for the kid. A 3 year old kid probably won't require too much anyway. There are supermarkets available in Pattaya too if you want to buy snacks and other stuff for your kid.
Rabbit resort in Jomtien is great for families- it is a small hotel with direct beach access bit no kids club. Centara Grand Mirage in Pattaya with a water park which is great for kids.
What do you expect for a hotel to be "child friendly?"
It is easier to recommend a hotel if we know roughly what your price range is. Hotels right now with air conditioning, private toilet, TV, hot water and clean sheets available around 600-800 baht per night. The more money you spend the more extras you get. There are tourists who check into cheap hotels and put their kid on a roll out bed. Their kids manage to survive. It doesn't take big money to entertain a 3 year old kid.
Look at a map of Pattaya. Where in Pattaya do you need this hotel? In Pattaya City area you can walk to many things. This is a hotel located from near the Dolphin at North Pattaya down to the South Pattaya Road area. Also local transportation is only 10 baht. (Malls, movie theaters, ice cream vendors, supermarkets, Seven Eleven type stores, etc.) Want a more remote area then look at hotels in the Naklua area or some of the hotels in the Jomtien area.
Plan your hotel around what you want to do and the kid will just tag along like all kids do. Everything in Asia will be new to him, the smells, the way people look, riding on baht buses, walking around, etc.
Haven't planned a daily budget out then choose a similar priced hotel that you would choose back home.
Up to you.

"dont take kids to Pattaya it really is not for children a great place for adults but not for kids !"
You always see tourists with kids in tow. Walk through a mall and you will notice family groups. There are amusement parks, go-carts and various attractions geared for children. Yeah, there are bars. You can't see anything unless you go in and they are more tame now than 10 years ago.
There are band concerts on Pattaya Beach that draw thousands of young visitors from all over. Thai family groups visit Pattaya Beach on weekends.
For those parents who have taken their kids to a beach in Europe those kids already have seen more naked women than they will see in Pattaya!
If a kid has access to a computer and the internet they already know more about sex than their parents did at the same age! There are lots of remote and almost remote areas in Pattaya/Jomtien/Naklua area if tourists need more secluded hotels.
Pattaya is a great resort for families now.Rubbish to suggest otherwise.Grand jomtien palace is a nice hotel with a big pool that you can walk into at one end....like a beach.
Hi, have you considered renting a private villa? We have a lovely 2 bedroom villa with private swimming pool and all the other luxuries of home.
Pattaya is packed with families visiting and highly popular with not only overseas visitors with huge numbers of Thai visitors
