Royal Cliff Beach Hotel
Travel Blogs from Pattaya
Arrival Sunrise is over a container port, that's where we are berthed. It's very humid today, it's sure to get worse as the temperature rises. Our trip today is based on Local Lifestyles, we set off at 8.45. First stop us a food market, it's mainly vegetables but so many different colours, many spices on offer as well. They cook inside the market and it's similar to China and Vietnam, they use palm leaves to wrap the food up and then cook. Here they also cook a dessert which ...
... time found ourselves in the guy club area and just had to laugh at this point... it was all getting weirder by the minute. We had a quick drink on a waterfront beer garden and called it a night. I think we have had enough excitement for today.
As you can see there aren't any pictures on this blog as we left the camera in the room all day to scope out the area before hand. We will be taking some tomorrow so check back but an update on our Pattaya adventure!!
... out to the beach.The island is a mountain. Or the mountain is an island, whichever way you want to say it, and we climb over the mountain to the other side to where we find a beautiful beach waiting.
It is not crowded as I walk over a long walking bridge to get to it. There are chairs and umbrellas set up and food stands. I walk for a while up and down the beach before picking which chairs I want to rent for the day. Different vendors rent lounge chairs along ...
... 8217; couple, Again, the man is a Brit - a Geordie who works out here in engineering - and his Thai wife. Normality here is a relative concept - as it is anywhere in the world - and I have never previously met a Geordie who can only handle three beers and who goes to bed at 7pm every night but he is a good bloke. His Thai wife works in the local laundry and the obvious attraction of securing a falang husband is clear when one considers that she earns a mere 20 ...
... shower area. We had all little soaps and things and I already eyed out a little ceramic box I want to take home but probably shouldn't. On the little tray with the box and soaps was a beautiful purple and white fresh orchid. Everything was really nice but I was debating whether it not it was nicer than the Singapore hotel. We quickly got changed into some shorts and walking shoes to head down to check out the busy street beneath us by the beach. We wandered down the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Royal Cliff Beach Hotel Pattaya
I stayed here for 10 nights and cannot recommend this place enough. The friendly and helpful staff could not do enough for us through our entire stay. The restaurants had a range of food that would suit all tastes and prices ranges. I left this hotel totaly relaxed and ready for our long flight home.
Firstly I cannot believe some of the other reviews that this hotel is getting. Compared to many hotels that I have stayed in the UK it is excellent and miles ahead.
I have stayed at the Royal Cliff on several occasions, most recently in the Royal cliff Beach terrace wing last week.It had been 2 years since my previous stay and, whilst I found the hotel excellent in the past I was disapointed this time.The rooms in the Terrace wing are now really outdated and becoming quite shabby. Plumbing noises from adjoining and higher rooms are atrocious. We were woken at least 5 times every evening by the antiquated system (and we are not light sleepers). Service is not quite up to the previous standard. The Royal Beach now seems to cater predominantly to Russian tourists. Not quite the same atmosphere as before. No longer value for the money in my opinion.
We stayed at the Royal Cliff beach resort for four weeks, we had originally booked to go to Phuket on 1st January 2005, but this changed after the tsunami. So we got to know the hotel quite well. Very large hotel and quite impersonal. Never really felt at home there. Extremely expensive for food and drinks (by Thai standards) and spent a large time working out how not to spend too much (breakfast costs the earth) also felt that as most of the guests were Russian and they spend a lot, that we British were not considered as important!!
This is the first time that we have been in Thailand. It won't be the last. The Resort was excellent. The staff were very friendly and efficient. We would certainly recommend this resort to anyone to stay. We had a great time at this Hotel complex and we will hopefully spend our holiday there again at the later part of the year.
Great place, great servive
I recentely (2 - 10 January 05) enjouyed a most beautifull holiday with my family at this Resort.
The facilities are world class, they have over 10 restaurants to select from all of which deliver 5* service.
We found the rooms to be well furnished and well maintained.
We have experienced no problems whatsoever and i can without doubt recomend this hotel to anybody whom need to experience sure luxury at an affordable prize
We had booked a Family Suite booking in Pattaya at Royal Cliff Beach Resort for the new year holiday.
If you never wanted to leave your hotel then staying at the Royal Cliff this wouldn't be a problem. The place is really a resot of 4 hotels and a convention centre and has everything, 10 restaurants, a 24 hr coffee shop, hairdressers/barbers, spa, bakery, tailors, limosine serice, gym, putting green as well as a program of organised activities sich as tennis and aerobic and demonstrations of crafts and other activities.
If carlsberg ran hotels they would all be like the Royal Cliff
I have made numerous trips to Pattaya since the 1980's. In the last two years I have stayed at the Royal Cliff. It is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in anywher in the world. Nothing is too much for the staff, they are hell bent on making you enjoy your stay. It also knocks the other hotels into a cocked hat in the quiet season by its special deals.
Treat yourself - give it a try.
