We really hated Pattaya, so that might have something to do with us never feeling 100% happy about the hotel/location. We had a ocean view room - and from the start it looked good but when entering the balcony I got really sad. When i pay extra money for sea-view I do not expect a building in the way of my view?! Look at the pictures! I really belive the hotel has to change this information - as it clearny NOT is sea-view, to be honest it is partly. The sad part is that the building is really shabby (seems to belong to the hotel as well). Another big thing is that the hotel is building the twin-wing as we speak - meaning there are construction sounds/around the hotel/lobby and also at the rooftop pool. So do not book if you want a quiet hotel.
Staff also mixed feelings, some really happy and helpful and others (mainly european girls) felt rather "chilly" in their way.
Also the beach location is not ideal - felt rather dirty. The whole area feels a little bit ghost-town...
Beautiful rooftop-pool, with nice staff. Amazing at night for drinks too!
Very nice little gym - very nice gym-staff! :)
Hotel lobby/areas are stunning! High class design and the biggest tank with sharks and fish in the restaurant downstairs. The room itself was great - all new with everything you need.
