“Worth repeated visits”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014

Located in relatively quiet North Pattaya and nearly one km from the main road. That's a problem and also a benefit depending on the purpose of visit. They have a shuttle to the city but that's not all that convenient to wait for the shuttle to be available.
View from the lobby is simply awesome though the lobby is otherwise not air conditioned.
Besides a nice restaurant, hotel has a small bakery that serves light snacks and confectioneries.

Rooms and bathrooms are very good and amongst the best in pattaya. Though seaview from rooms is partial but pretty decent.

Staff is pretty nice at the front desk.

All in all it's a very good property and worth staying repeatedly.

Room Tip: Beach view rooms are nice.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for choosing Cape Dara Resort for your holiday in Pattaya.
Please allow me to clarify your concerns as following:
- Shuttle to shopping areas on Pattaya Beach Road.
We are now providing more shuttles and more rounds to go to Mike Shopping Mall where guests can enjoy shopping souvenirs or take local taxi to any other places nearby on the same road.
Beyond shuttle time, guests can also take our buggy service to the dolphin circle anytime. From dolphin circle to shopping areas takes only less than 5 minutes.
- Sea view rooms
At Cape Dara Resort, we offers all rooms with sea view. However, if you look for a panoramic view, there are available in some room types such as Dara Suite, Dara Beachfront Room, Dara Private Pool Room, Family Suite, and Top Star Duplex Suite.

We are looking forward to welcome you back at our resort again in the near future :)


Warm regards,

An excellent hotel offering modern eastern charm and service in the "traditional" way.
Room is huge and comfortable with breathtaking view, amazing infinity pool and immaculate service! Highly recommended hotel!
Pattaya was probably a once in a lifetime visit for us - but pleased that we chose the Cape Dara.

Overall nice modern environment and design. Good Breakfast. Need improve on room cleanliness . The hotel is not really good for family with small children (under 5 years old) because of the facility and safety. The advertise said there is swimming pool is children, is not completely true. I would not recommend for traveler with small child; otherwise good place to spend you holiday.

Dear Khun Somchaw,

Thank you for staying at Cape Dara Resort during your holiday.
Please kindly allow me to clarify your concerns.
Chrildren pool - although we have never advertised on any media that our pool is for kids. However, we do provide a seperate kids pool next to the pool bar so that parents can supervise their kids while chilling with drinks and snacks too. It is on the left hand side of the pool (if facing to the sea). The resort designer team has revised their designs more than 72 times to make sure every bit and piece is friendly for all age travellers with different needs. However, your comment is very much appreciated. Should you need any further assistance please do not hesitate to write to us at the email below. We are looking forward to welcome you again at Cape Dara Resort, Pattaya :)

Awesome pool and very comfortable modern room with an excellent bed. The shower was bigger than a "normal" room in Bangkok. Spectacular ocean views. Staff were friendly and helpful. Check-in took a little long, but it was busy so I guess that was to be expected. Food in the restaurant was good but the room service food was average. Would definitely return again as soon as possible.

Never been to Pattaya before, don't think we will go back soon. Hotel was good, most likely one of the best you can find in Pattaya.
Pattaya itself is not the best place to go with the family.

Also a lot of the signs, menus etc are not in Thai or English, but actually in Russian, due to the large amounts of Russians visiting this place these days.

Room Tip: Good to have the sea view, much nicer than than the city view

Dear Sir,


Thank you for choosing Cape Dara Resort for your holiday.
I'm glad to hear that you liked our resort and sorry to hear that you were not so impressed with the city. As an a person who was born and raised in Pattaya with some living abroad experiences, I understand that Pattaya is known of its night life. However, Pattaya is developing towards family side of attractions. The new attractions of 2014 will be 2 water parks, along with the existing attractions such as sheep farm, dolphin show, elephant village, snake farm, crocodile farm, and mimosa the shopping village with entertainment show. Pattaya always grow and has more to offer for family travellers. I wish you would please kindly consider a second visit when you are ready and perhaps those places I mentioned might be of your interest.

Lastly, on behalf of Cape Dara Resort, I would like to thank you once again and looking forward to welcome you back at our resort in the next opportunity :)

I went there with my whole family, staying in a 2 bedroom suite. The suite is huge and equipped with Bvlgari amenities. Complimentary afternoon tea buffet with all you can drink cocktail and wine. The layered swimming pool seems connecting the ocean. Shuttle golf cart on request to the Main Street anytime during the day. Will certainly go back there again in the near future.

The hotel has a very spectacular view point. The bed room is designed to make good use of this great view. The beach is small but private. The ocean is not so good for swimming but the pool is very nice and could replace the ocean swim. It is out of town, and relatively quiet, which is nice for me. Food is average but adequate.
I like the place and will come back.
