Marriott Pattaya Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Pattaya
My first time in Thailand was on an audit with Jenny, Leer and Eberhard. We stayed in a really great hotel with a beautiful garden in the inside patio (Marriott Spa & Resort in Pattaya). The city itself was interesting but not very "cultural" in terms of the offering. It is a heart of the Thai sex-tourism industry, and on of the biggest centers …
9 ½ Weeks.............................it really is since we arrived When we last wrote, it was getting near to New Year. Anna and Darroch left for the New Year party on Koh Phangan - more about that later! On Hogmanay we met up with Anthony, Caroline, James and Steve who were renting T3 and we all jumped in a taxi and went to the Billabong in …
... show that was pretty cool. Another elephant show with funny tricks. Pattaya is overrun by Russians . Signs are not only Thai, they are actually printed with Russian ! Very interesting. Arrived to our Long Beach Hotel Resort around 5pm. Very nice lobby, a good sized room with a great view of the ocean, if you could see it through the haze. We walked the ...
... Thailand has a similar reputation. Admittedly we didn't expect it to be quite as brash as it was but nevertheless even without participating in the extra-circular activities (before you ask) we had an amazing time. The nightlife was so amazing that we have been back again and it’s where we celebrated Songkran a couple years ago. As we are staying in Bangkok which is only a couple of hours away by coach we had to add it to our itinerary.
... Ship officials told us that it’s OK for us to go to the dinner buffet at the 11th floor. We really appreciated that!! The ship presented each lady with a big red rose, for Valentine's Day!
Ira and Fran finally arrived at the ship, all well!!! They waited for us for dinner and we had a good time! Now we’re back in our room, ready to shower and have a good rest!

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott Pattaya Resort & Spa
My husband and I have just returned from Pattaya. It was our 4th trip to this location and the first stay in Pattaya Marriott. We booked it via Asiarooms.
We have stayed here twice. THe last time was in November 2004.
THe service is excellent.
THe rooms are luxurious
The breakfast buffet wonderful.
I like the location by the beach and connected to the shopping mall
(where Sizzlers is)
The pool is pretty big and there is use of the gym in the mall.
A bit over priced
Stayed here for 4 nights. Pool area is very good and service is good too.
Think the rooms are not that great though, have actually stayed here 3 times on business and two of the rooms had ants in the bathroom, TVs are a bit old, showers in small bath and overall not that good compared with some of the competition at better prices in Pattaya. It is in a good position for eating and nightlife in Pattaya and also has shopping centre with cinemas etc in same complex.
My boyfriend and I have just returned from 10 days in Pattaya, staying at the Marriott resort & Spa.
This is one of those hotels where, the longer you stay, the longer you want to stay.
Stayed here for the second time ,It seemed alot better than the first time.The pool area was improved with big water jets and a slide.Great buffett dinners and breakfasts.I had a ocean view room on the 8th floor which was good.Rooms are about 4 star standard.Location is great ,staff very nice.Would have to be the best resort in pattaya.
We had an awful experience with Pattaya Marriott. We wanted an oceanview room, but we did not get to see the ocean, all we saw was trees. Then we wanted high floor and non-smoking floor, we did not get them. This was not the worst part. The worst part was that I had requested for the Bangkok Post newspapers at 7:30am, called 5 times, and even went out to Coral island, and came back around 5pm, still did not get the newpapers. I had to complain to the customer service manager and got the newpapers. Then our room keys broke down twice. The worst was yet over. The safe deposit box broke down! Again we called and called, and waited and waited for them to fix it asap. The response was slow. I wonder is it due to Christmas Eve. By the way, the swimming pool was dirty. I must admit that this hotel is conveniently located in the city centre. Next door is a shopping centre; restaurants and pubs are around the corners. With such bad experience, I would not consider of going back.
Quite simply if you're staying in Pattaya you must stay at The Marriott Resort & Spa. This hotel is so conveniently located right in the middle of all the shops, restaurants and within a couple of minutes walking distance from the main nightlife areas. I have been back four times and can't praise it highly enough. Although you're right slap bang in the middle of Pattaya the swimming pool area is as relaxed and peaceful as you'll find anywhere, the friendly staff will do anything for you (Ok so not quite anything) and the sports facilities are first rate. The hotel itself is attached to a huge 3 storey entertainment complex with numerous shops, restaurants, a Ripley's Believe it or not Museum (which is a must visit) and countless more attractions to mention. For nightlife visit Colin and Stan in Cheers Bar, Soi Pattayaland 2, and sit and watch the world go by. For the more adventurous Spicy Girls a Go Go in the same location is a small but interesting venue.
One of the better hotels
One of the better hotels in Pattaya, rooms are clean and the service very good, in common with many SE asian hotels. Weclomed by a hot towel and a drink on check in - a nice touch. Relaxed guest policy
My husband and I stayed at the Pattaya Marriot over Christmas of 2002. While Pattaya is definitely not my favorite city in the world, I loved this hotel. The open air pavilion lobby has a fantastic, relaxing tropical feel, without being overdone. The rooms are well appointed, but some of them tend to be musty because of the damp tropical air. The morning breakfast buffet is absolutely amazing. It rivals some of the best buffets I have ever had, including the Sunday Brunch at the Ritz Carlton in Half Moon Bay, CA and the Aladdin in Las Vegas.
