On the morning of December 27th, I woke up early with a start - I had been dreaming about our time on the beach for several days, and at last it had arrived. After a quick wander through the street market outside our hotel for breakfast, where $3 bought us two large bags of cut fruit, sweetened iced coffee and raisin-stuffed waffles, we were …
... at one point! It was certainly a nice way to celebrate. We visited the Nong Nooch Tropical gardens in Pattaya which was a lovely day, although after visiting the elephant sanctuary in Chiang Mai it upset me to see the elephants in the show. The gardens were immaculate though and really well kept. Most of our time in Pattaya was spent catching up with family and friends before the wedding which was a great way to spend Christmas & New Year. Mark got to see the real ...
... we went to the aquarium and we were amazed by the peculiar water animals. Furthermore, we went to Mini Siam Park. This park contains the Seven Wonders of the World in mini size, in this place we got to know how the seven wonders look like, and what is the story behind each wonder. Finally, I would like to encourage who is reading my story to visit Pattaya which is one of the best places that I have ever ...
... phones. A few bring along laptops. On occasion I have brought my iPad but usually just want to enjoy the beach. While sitting in the lounger at the beach I notice a couple sitting in the chairs next to me. They are eating fish. Food stands along the streets have several type of fish displayed for sale, but I have never bought any. I asked the man what kind of fish they were. He showed me how they eat them. The fish are cooked whole, with the heads ...
... relation to which one will not find guidance to in any publication. Playing pool by the swimming pool in our compound was Mark (see above) and his feamle companion (cost = 10 pounds per day). In such a scenario, it is difficult to know whether (1) to be open and affable or (2) to feign blindness and only to speak if spoken to (I’m sure other options also exist). I opted for (2) and the recently acquainted lovers soon disappeared into his poolside home…

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Pattaya Resort
Anyone old enough to remember the Royal Wing in all it's glory will know that a visit to Pattaya was worthwhile just to stay there! Yes Pattaya is a slum, yes the sea is far from clean, but hey it can be fun in the evenings and if you have a great hotel to spend the day in with good restaurants to feed you before you go out what more does the average holidaymaker require? Sadly the Royal Wing is past it's sell buy date and began to treat regular customers as a nuicance and achieved what every hotelier wants turning 100% occupancy over peak season Christmas/ New Year to the now reported 50% and falling.
This resort was everything we wanted for our winter getaway. The amazing gardens, beautiful pools, relaxing beds and the most attentive staff. I would recommend this hotel in a heartbeat!
This hotel was amazing! I've stayed at the Four Seasons and Ritz in other countries before and have to say the service and the facilities at this resort are comparable.
This resort is perfect for a relaxing break, set in beautiful gardens with 3 stunning swimming pools, with relaxing music gently soothing away the stress of modern life. We stayed in a pool terrace room, which although described as 'direct pool access' it was in fact down a few steps to the poolside. The room was spacious with seperate shower and very clean. It had a large terrace with two sun-loungers and as it was a corner room, this was fairly private. The staff were very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble. However we did have a problem with the air conditioning and although everyone was very sorry about this, it did not get fixed. There is no real beach to speak of, but as the sea in Pattaya is not the cleanest, this is not a problem with 3 pools to choose from. The resort is set on a steep hill and so there are lots of steps, it also next door to a large hotel one side and apartments to the other - although this really didn't make a difference. It is only 5 minutes in a local taxi to the town itself - lots of bars and restaurants to chose from. It's actually awfully tacky and not the 'real' Thailand. Food in the hotel was very good, and of course a little expensive, but not overly so. It is a perfect hotel for a relaxing break, but would recommend staying in a pool terrace or pavillion room for the extra space.
We decided not to visit Phuket this year. We stayed at the Hilton on Karon Beach a few weeks before the tsunami last year and we weren't ready to return.
A Beach Resort with no acess to Beach!
Having heard of the openning of Sheraton Pattaya. Being a Bangkok resident who enjoy retreating to Pattaya or Hua hin once a month, i decided to check out the resort on this occasion which I must say, have left me with some disappointment. First of all, I stayed in the garden view room and the corridor is extremely narrow and has an obstructed view as there is this convention hall right next to it. The beach is not accessible, in fact there is no swimming area in the sea at all since the resort beach front is actually consisting of dangerous looking rocks confronting by strong waves.
For the amount that I am paying, I could book another room somewhere else in the 5 star resort right next to it, the Royal Cliff Beach Hotel at much cheaper price.
Perhaps I should mention that we are veterans of many resort hotels in Asia, including most of the Sheraton resorts. We stayed at the Sheraton Pattaya with our two small boys during the first week of October, 2005.
I Live in Bangkok, but needed a weekend away. Everyone warned me off going to Pattaya, said Hau Hin was the cloest for the 5* wow factor. However I thought I would not ignore the advice and my Indonesian girlfriend wanted to check out Pattaya. So I booked into the Cliff Beach Resort hotel - as a number of people have said. Its "OK" - but there is nothing wow about it. When we were going up the road to the Cliff I saw a sign post for the Sheraton Resort and Spa. Looking online I read the above review and worked out it was pretty new. Taking a risk I checked out of the cliff and into the Sheraton. I can tell you it was the right decision. The rooms are perfect, large baths!, the balcony is worth paying extra for (Pavilion rooms). Service was perfect! - The three freeform swimming pools in lush gardens are perfect. Hot spas mixed into the pools! Lots of walking up and down the cliff side (hotel on a cliff) so be aware of that's an issue. I liked the fact they pumped chill out music by the pool, saved my ipod battery. FREE WiFi in the rooms, Clif hotel drove me mad having to walk down to Business center to buy the cards and then find it did not work!. When will hotels learn that Internet should be FREE. Most new / modern hotels this is the case. Basically the hotel had that little extra wow factor.
