AVANI Pattaya Resort & Spa

Reviewed 26 August 2014

Not really the best hotels in the luxury category but it certainly has a lot to offer. Service is decent but what I love most about it is the location. Next to the mall, beach and walking street!

Also has a fantastic gym that I always use, just too bad it's quite far from the rooms we get generally.

I would say value for money describes Marriott Pattaya the best.

Room Tip: Try to get the pool/garden view.

I stayed here with my partner for a little weekend getaway, but it was absolutely lovely. As I live in Bangkok this is a very convenient place to come to, though unfortunately the traffic was horrendous on the way, but that's another story.

Check in was really great, everything had been prepared for us already and by the time we finally got there it was time for a rest. I actually have no idea what room type I stayed in, since I completely forgot to ask, but it was very nice, spotless clean (yes, I'm one of those people that takes clean appearances way too serious), with a beautiful balcony facing the garden, absolutely wonderful to sit and just relax.

I wanted to walk around the beach road a bit, and on the way out I stopped by reception to sign up for their membership program so that I can get some extra privileges, and through the Royal Garden Plaza. It's absolutely great when you have that much convenience all together. I went for a stroll down the road to check out Central Festival and some other things, and then returned for dinner.

The breakfast was really great, and they actually provide real orange juice, something which I'm very particular about. The crepes and waffles were overproduced though, and usually by the time you got one, it was already cold and stale. But otherwise it was delicious.

The staff were also wonderful at check out, especially because I had some special tickets for the adjacent Ripley's Museum with some special conditions. The people at the museum didn't know what to do with me, but the ladies at the hotel called up the right people and got everything sorted for me.

Pattaya is not everybody's cup of tea, especially if you've been there and you know that it has some "interesting" things going on, but staying at the Marriott, you can withdraw from that world and stay in your little paradise. Great job guys, I'll be back soon.

Whilst I only stayed 2 nights in this hotel I found the rooms to be nice and well kept.
The hotel seemed to be popular with tour groups and this did cause a bit of a delay at check-in due to a large number of arrivals.
The hotel staff were friendly and spoke pretty good English, I'd recommend this hotel.

Pattaya Marriot is probably the most affordable luxurious hotel in the world. It has everything I wanted. Great location within a short walking distance from any place of interest in Pattaya. Inside the hotel territory you have the most beautiful tropical garden in the best of Siamese traditions. Inside the garden you have a large swimming pool, with ping-pong tables and a inside pool bar, that makes mean Mojito. The restaurant in the hotel is top notch and among the varied menu, it serves what I think is the best Thai food in Pattaya. The room service also comes from the same kitchen and is top notch. Elephant Cafe in the lobby is also a very classy establishment with very sophisticated and friendly staff. And most importantly the rooms are full of light, spacious comfortable and very clean. I had a room with the ocean view and I loved each and every day I spent in this hotel. The staff at the reception and the shift managers are very friendly and are always on your side. This is by far the best hotel I have ever staid and I do travel quite a bit in Europe.

Room Tip: I would definitely recommend higher floors with ocean view.

I have stayed in this hotel before & my experience each time has been similar. A comfortable room although the smell from the balcony put me off using it. Pattaya is notorious for bad smells which I believe emanate from an inadequate sewage system. I give full marks to the staff: reception & room cleaners. The gardens & swimming pool are to my liking. The restaurant during my recent stay was mobbed & the food over-priced and of variable quality. Should I return to Pattaya I would consider staying here again. However, Pattaya for me is not the nice seaside resort I remember from yesteryear. I much preferred it in the late 1980's & '90's. Sadly the bars & restaurants I enjoyed back then have either changed hands or no longer exist. In my opinion Pattaya has grown too big & bigger does not mean better!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room
