Let me Preface this review by saying that the City of Pattaya is not one of my Favorites. I was over-joyed a few years ago to discover The Jomtien area--and this hotel particularly.
Located right on Dongtaen Beach(There is a slight road between the hotel and the Beach that is closed during the Day and really only has traffic before the beach opens and right when it closes--otherwise quiet most of the night) it is a Quiet Oasis of Relaxation.Thai Style Rooms are Spacious and Clean and the morning Breakfast is Bountiful--Including Both Western and Asian Favorites.
The pool area is opulent and has many areas to relax while still wading.
Yes, alot of Russian Tourists stay there. I find most of them to be lots of fun and a pleasure to spend time with. But I enjoy travel and talking to people of different backgrounds and philosophies.
The staff are top-notch and many have been there since I started going there about 7 years ago. They are very helpful to Farangs.
Down Side--Bathrooms need some updating and slight Mold Removal.
Invest in some Digital TVs and get a better selection of English Programming & News.
This Hotel has 3 rates for each room==High-Shoulder-Low. They never seem to run any specials even now that they are allowing some of the major online sites to book them. It seems there philosophy is to get the full rate--even if half the hotel is unoccupied. Even though there is a much larger & newer property right next door. And that hotels' rate is slightly lower.
