“Fabulous holiday stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

Recently stayed at Baboona BeachFront Living whilst at Pattaya on holiday.
The name says it all, across the road from the beach approximately 3 kms to walking street (not my scene).
The hotel was immaculate, large room with a balcony overlooking the beach. the rooms were cleaned every day, the staff very accommodating.
Breakfast was included in the room rate (Western and Thai).
There is a small gym on the premises, a substantial library and a collection of DVD's for guests use.
I did not get to use the restaurant but the menu looked most inviting.
Despite the proximity to Beach Rd, very little noise intruded into the room.
There are a range of excellent eating venues near the hotel and a 7 eleven just down the road.
The only disappointment, the hotel does not have a pool.
Despite this, I would gladly book again.

Room Tip: Book through Trip Advisor and include breakfast option.

We travelled as a couple. This is a great hotel which is located just opposite the beach front. Location of the hotel provides great convenience in moving around key attractions. The "ripleys believe it or not" inside royal garden plaza is a must see. Great rooms which are very spacious with super bathrooms. Overall a great place to stay for couples and families alike.

its really value for money; in which each room equipped with nice terrace facing directly to the beach.
The room is huge with nice bed and interior decoration.
The Breakfast is quite decent with choices and good food.
to the beach side just few step away from the hotel.
Nearby had many good restaurant to get any food of your taste.
The only lack of this hotel is;
Do not have space for car parking; so had to park in the street, which hard to get space to.
The Wifi signal quality is very week and drop mostly. that cause trouble for commnunication over internet.
No staff greeting us; and giving help when we arrived at the hotel front.... and had to struggle to get space to park the car, as well has to carry all our luggage on our own.

Anyway I still wish to recommend this hotel to others and hopefully the services quality can be improved soon

Room Tip: to get good view from the terrace; 3rd floor up are much recoomended

To start off with we had a horrendous experience staying at the White Palace in Bangkok & we weren't really expecting too much in Pattaya... However we were pleasently surprised to find that Baboona has surpassed all out expectations (Could be the trauma talking tho!)

I'm going to make it easy by listing down the Pros & Cons which might hopefully be helpful to people who are looking to stay here:

Pros:
- Relatively large, airy, well maintained rooms... Very comfy beds
- Great amenities & facilities
- Wonderful Bathrooms - Clean, well maintained with all the basic toiletries
- Professional staff - Very helpful whenever required
- Good Breakfast spread & a great view - Overlooking the ocean
- Right next to the tour operators - If you want to explore the city or do the 3 Island tour(suggested)
- It's located on the Beach strip (No pun intended) so a great choice of restaurants at walking distance including a Hard Rock Hotel
- Very easy to get taxis, to get around

Cons:
- The Strip is noisy & busy (if you know what I mean)

Overall a great experience & I would wholeheartedly recommend this place to anyone travelling to Pattaya.

Room Tip: We stayed in the rooms which weren't facing the beach, if it's in your budget - I would recc...

Although small, this hotel endeavors to provide as much service as possible within the limits of its facilities. There is a small gym, although it's on the ground floor and kind of in plain view. There is a nice sitting room next to the gym near the lobby. They provide breakfast with the rooms, and there is security on duty. Overall it's good value for the price point.

I stayed three years ago in the Baboona and was put off by the girly bar next door.
Last june 2012 I walked past her again, the same old aircons still rattle on.
The good news is that ,as of june 12 there is no bar anymore.
The bad news is the building next door is a huge building site. Not sure sure if renovation
or demolition, expect noise.
.

Room Tip: try to get a room with higher numbers 204 insted of 201. There will be less noise.

Loved this hotel, we had a room at the back and my sister had one on the side with a huge window from which you could also see the sea, only down side to her room was it got extremely hot in the afternoon.
The rooms were huge with a massive tv and we also had the regular fridge and dvd player, even the shower was pretty impressive.
This hotel is at the top of beach road and there isn't too many places to eat without making a short walk, but you can just hop on the baht bus. The restaurant down stairs is ok and the free breakfast was of a standard thai fair.
This hotel is a great price and they also gave us a discount for booking 2 rooms, the only down side to this hotel is there is no pool, but that is why this hotel is so cheap.

The only bad experience we had was someone climbed onto our balcony and was trying the door around 4am (we had only just got in and had gone to bed so we were awake). My husband chased him off and I think he had the fright of is life as he flew down the fire escape. (good job my husband didn't catch him). Security were pretty good and searched the area and said they would patrol for the rest of the night.
This happens everywhere so really didn't bother us.

On our next visit we will definitely be staying again.
