This was our 4th stay at the Royal Paradise in the last 5 years, and unfortunately it will be our last. We have noticed a gradual decline in the hotel since our first stay, the outside of the hotel was being painted when we stayed and that was badly needed, the inside now needs to be done. The inside is looking very dated when you consider the other new hotels being built in Patong.
The variety available at breakfast has declined over the past 5 years, it has about half the food available as when we first stayed here. (the toaster has been fixed!)
The location to Bangla Rd is good, and I would recommend a high floor in the tower to avoid the noise of the nearby night clubs.
The attendants around the pool seem more concerned with the amount of towels you take than serving in the pool bar. They officiate the handing out of pool towels like prison guards handing out rations! Not something you want to experience on your holiday.
There is no way this hotel can be considered 4 star, it is 2.5 to 3 star at best. We paid just under $100AUD per night, and in Patong this is overpriced. Whilst we were in Patong we had a look at a couple of other hotels at around the same price and we will definitely stay elsewhere next time.
Really the future for the Royal Paradise is either a major upgrade to retain it’s so called 4 star rating or drop their prices to match other 2.5 to 3 star hotels.
