Fairtex - We stayed here for 2 nights on our way from Bangkok to Koh Chang, the resort of Pattaya as a whole didn't really impress me, probably because I wasn't looking for a Thai lady friend which is what the whole resort seems to be built on, but Fairtex Sports Club & Hotel - Amazing !
You are met in a grand entrance with extremely helpful staff, a bell boy came and took our bags to a golf buggy which then whisked us off to our room which was very clean with extremely modern decor & furnishings, which to be honest lacks a bit of character, but this isn't a criticism, more of an observation.
Our shower wasn't very hot and we had to keep promoting housekeeping to leave toilet roll (which for some reason is a reoccurring trend we have encountered in Thailand)
The complex as a whole is kept Spick and span by an army of maintenance staff. The gym facility (free) and Mauy Thai training facilities (extra fee - 800Bht -£17:50 for a walk in two hr session) world class. We were there over the new year period (31st Dec 13 - 2nd Jan 14) so the scheduled fitness classes, of which there are too many to mention where unfortunately cancelled.
We were staying on the bed and breakfast option and the buffet breakfast was outstanding... Cooked breakfast with eggs cooked to your choosing (scrambled, poached, boiled, fryed, omelette) pancakes, big choice of cereal, fresh seasonal fruit, fresh fruit juices, tea, fresh coffee, hot milk... The list goes on to say its that good that we ate there for lunch one day and dinner another...
Whatch the bell boys... We wanted to watch some Mauy Thai in Pattsya one evening... Price 1200Bht, the bell boy swore to me that the tickets were 1800Bht and that they were sold out for the evening we wanted, I took the gamble and went to the stadium... And guess what 1200Bht on the door, no problem getting in.
Apart from that... All in all a cracking place to stay, would I stay again - Yes !
