Stayed here for five business days and all I can think of is I should have stayed here for vacation instead of business! The location is very convenient since it is sandwiched between Beach Rd and Pattayasaisong Rd and is accessible to restaurants, bars, Walking Street and malls.

The Twin Sharing room I got in has a view of the street on the entrance and a veranda with a view of the pool on the other. The bathroom is see thru so it kinda reminds you to bring a special someone along. you might want to check if the room you're getting has a door going to the adjacent room. Nothing wrong with that per se but the person next door keeps on clanging his door each night.

Breakfast might not be extravagant but there is enough choice for every kind of appetite and I would suggest eating alfresco since the morning sun is covered by the shade.

The staff can speak good English and are courteous and approachable.

All in all a really good stay and would want to stay here next time. Highly recommended for couples more than business travelers (or make sure you have ample time to enjoy the amenities).

Pattaya itself probably isn't much to write home about but the hotel definitely is. The hotel is not in the best part of Pattaya but is most definitely within walking distance of it, in fact it's pretty much central to most of what Pattaya has to offer. Although it it is attached to a shopping centre, the better shopping centre is 15 minutes walk along the beach. Night time strolls along the beach, just outside the hotel, show the seedy side of Pattaya. 'Ladies' under every tree (& there's a lot of trees) although none of them made a nuisance of themselves but it's probably not a place for children! We received a warm welcome with cold drinks and cooling towels - just what we needed. Our club room was comfortable, spacious and nicely furnished. Full marks to the maid service - our room was immaculate after she had visited with the timing such that we never saw her except when we went to find her at the end of our stay. The hotel has an impressive amount of staff who took time to greet us throughout our 10 day stay there and who genuinely seemed to care that we were enjoying everything on offer. During our stay we discovered I had made an error in our booking dates - booked the wrong dates for leaving the hotel & the wrong dates for the next hotel. Explaining this to one of the Club Lounge staff - Kat - she asked us to 'leave it with her'. As reluctant as I was to do this, Kat not only corrected our leaving date but managed to re-arrange the date for our next hotel & re-negotiated our non-refundable pre-payment. Kat, the world needs more people like you!
Breakfast in the hotel was excellent. I have never seen such a choice of quality food, it seemed that every nationality could have their favourite breakfast. We ate lunch once which was good and dinner once - a themed buffet, which was spectacularly unspectacular. Breakfast in the Club Lounge was tried once & was ok for a quick breakfast and evening snacks there were tried most nights and were a good appetiser to a main course somewhere else. We tried room service but not much seemed to be available even though it was on the menu.
The hotel grounds are very green, well kept, and large enough to transport your mind away from the bustle of Pattaya. The pool is large, clean & has plenty of sunbeds around it. There is also a shallow pool for children, with a slide.
Yes, we would go back again to this hotel. As a reasonable well travelled couple, the hotel was great & the area proved not to be anywhere as near an issue as portrayed on television, although we did wonder what it would be like at the height of the season.

Room Tip: Definitely recommend the club rooms - can't say what the others are like.

Dear Alan G,

Thank you so very much indeed for your lengthy, interesting and complimentary feedback; such kind words. We here at Pattaya Marriott Resort & Spa are overjoyed that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. In answer to your query: Pattaya is fairly busy already; it will get busier, but not much more than at present. Thank you so much for your comments re: Kat, yes, she’s super, and we are honoured to have her working here. A good maid is never seen but always noticed; so we appreciate your kind comments on this subject too. We’re particularly pleased that you noticed our staff had genuine concern that you were enjoying your stay. There is nothing we desire more, than for our guests to have that feeling of euphoria as they walk the hotel and its grounds or enjoy a meal, drink or entertainment with us. There’s nothing more important to us.

Once again, it was a privilege to have you stay with us, and giving us the chance to create some fond memories for you. We look forward to creating many more for you upon your return.

Yours sincerely,

Naritkorn Sampaoyont

We decided to stop here for our last few days after travelling Cambodia and Vietnam and Thailand.This hotel is amazing the pool is huge and you feel like your on a tropical island. It is not the cheapest hotel but for £55 a night you can't complain as it would cost £200-300 in the UK. If I come back to pattaya I will be stopping here again.

The location is centrally located with the beach street and beach on one side and the main strip in front. We were able to walk every where in Pattaya and if the Walking Street is a location you'd want to see, it is just a 5 min. walk away. The staff was helpful and courteous and most spoke English quite well which is a bonus for Americans. Our check in was nice after we were shown to a private location for Member check in. The layout and the grounds were lovely and well taken care of. I also visited the spa and had a wonderful treatment by a well trained staff member. The value was excellent for Americans but probably a bit high for travelers in Asia. There are many options tho. Drink and food prices were good for a hotel like this and the food was good but nothing spectacular. The breakfast buffet however was very good and had much to choose from. My only complaint, and not really that bad since you expect it at a hotel like this, is the rooms and pool area and especially the gym were in need of an update. The rooms were bare and decor dull. Not sure the idea around the shower but when you turned it on water drained onto the floor where it was conveniently diverted down a drain but why not have a bigger shower door? But the gym equipment was old and in need of replacement. They also had problems billing us at the pool correctly but were happy to correct it upon check out. The pool also needed some updates but was adequate and the staff was great. Happy hour was loudly announced by the bang of a gong but only one hour so you need to time it. Drinks were a good price for pool side and towel available readily. We were able to walk to any location and helped with a taxi if we needed it. The concierge didn't seem very knowledgeable for her job and had only limited recommendations. The places we ended up going to were more referrals by locals. A huge bonus was the terrific gentleman who played piano in the lobby bar in the evening. He was fantastic and great to talk to. I believe he was from Isreal. Be sure to see him if you are there! Very quiet also for it's location in the heart of everything.

Room Tip: I'd stay away from where the large tropical birds are brought out daily. They are very loud and...

I just finished my 12 days vacation in Thailand last week. This time I stayed in 4 hotels in Bangkok and Pattaya. I stayed 5 days total in Marriott Pattaya Resort & Spa.

I have stayed numbers of times in this hotel before. The reason I keep coming back was because of the excellent services. There are numbers of reviews saying the hotel is old. Yes, it is a 15+ years old hotel. If people like to stay in a new hotel in pattaya, there are numbers of hotel to choose (Hilton, Holiday Inn..etc).

During my stay, the hotel hosted a party for the return guests. I got a chance to talk with the new Director of F&B, John Manley. I complained to him that the food in their Garden Cafe and excutive lounge was just too tasty. I just ate too much and had to skip lunch! This trip, I gained about 4 lbs mainly because of the food here. :)

I am coming back to stay in this hotel in early December again.

If you happen to need non-sleazy lodging in Pattaya, it's a choice you won't regret. I stayed at the Marriot Pattaya Resort & Spa for 2 nights, on the second weekend of November, 2014. The staff were ver helpful and polite, despite my checkin details being a bit complicated. (First night voucher and 2nd night booked with Agoda)
My Pool View room was large, very comfortable and was cleaned, to a high standard every day, Sheets and towels were both changed every day. Breakfast was alright with a wide fair variety of food on offer, but a bit expensive for the standard choices on offer. The swimming pool, within the gardens is very large which means you can enjoy a little poolside R&R, even though there was a very loud group of Chinese tourist using the pool for some group game activities. The location of the hotel is fantastic, with the front leading onto Second Road, the other side, through lovely gardens leads right out to Beach Road with an really good Italian restaurant/brew pub just out and to the right.
Furthermore, on one side of the hotel is The Royal Garden Plaza, which you can enter through 2 side doors on the hotel. A better and cheaper breakfast can be had at the Coffee club restaurant there as well and they open at 7:30 AM and serve all day. All the staff I met during my stay were a real credit to the hotel. This, I believes, makes the Marriot Pattaya a real credit to the Marriot organisation and what it strives to provide to its clients, worldwide.
