... with all the "unrest" that is being played out of proportion around the world. We met Gary and had dinner close to home.
Monday we went for a walk around the neighbourhood bought some groceries and DVD's then had lunch at a neighbourhood restaurant. For the rest of the afternoon we watched Despicable Me and prepared fish tacos and apple crisp for dinner. After dinner we decided to watch the movie again and both of us had missed parts...I couldn't make it past ...
I visit with my friend from Sweden and, after awhile, I decide to order from the restaurant right behind me. I raise my hand just slightly (I am retired).There is a small wooden desk with drinks and people that come to take your order. I order a curry meal with rice and chicken stock.
He phones the restaurant that is just through the trees and across the small walkway. It is just far enough away not to interrupt the peacefulness of the ocean experience, yet ...
... The girl that worked there poured a liquid from a kettle into the hot pot and bought out loads of different dishes that we asked for. We put all of the food in the water then put it on top for it to go brown. It was really tasty and to eat the liquid after cuz it had all of the meat juice in it. We then walked back to the villa and sat and had a couple of beers outside in the wooden seating area. It was so warm that we decided to go for a dip in the ...

I was a foreigner and did not have the correct paper work, even
though I had the correct paper work. Oh well! I instead had a beer
with some Isaan people I met while I waited for the crew to return. I
did a good job at hiding any consumption form the eyes and noses of
students. Of course I am a shining example of upright citizenness and
high moral standing.

Eventually I got into Pattaya, it’s all very familiar, I know my way around the place well enough. I headed back to the place we stayed at last time where the staff were friendly ,we got a discount, laundry and breakfast is free and it’s clean with decent internet. I was parking up a Swedish guy came up to chat, this never happens ...

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.
