A wi-fi review of Pattaya Bay Resort

Recommended Posts

First off, this is a review for people who want wi-fi in their rooms. If you don’t need that, you can get the same for less and should stay elsewhere.

 

Second, there is a great review of Pattaya Bay Resort by Shuggy on here, complete with lots of pictures—it is a must to read. So I won’t post any pics since they are already on the site.

 

The good stuff. Lots of good stuff about this hotel.

 

-airport pick-up—great, 1200 baht, nice car

 

-wi-fi----great, always worked, fast, could download at 200kbs, 75 kbs upload.

 

-rooms----- nice, new bathrooms, good water pressure, hot water good

 

-1300 a night price good considering the wi-fi

 

-great mall only 200 feet away—24 hour new Villa market—very nice.

 

But let’s get to the negatives, that’s what’s important.

 

1)Too noisy. Walls are thin, could here my neighbors TV the whole time. Plus constant construction noise from the

outside. If u stay here—get an even numbered room so you are on the opposite side of the construction.

 

2)Workout room is a joke, they shouldn’t have bothered.

 

3)Pool has no Jacuzzi and is only 3.5 feet deep. Has a nice rooftop location though.

 

4)Location is OK but you will be crossing 2nd road all the time. Better to be between 2nd and beach road.

 

5)The mattresses are hard. Not concrete hard like many in Asia but not soft either. I don’t know that any soft

mattresses exist in Asia though.

 

I actually looked for another hotel while there but found nothing better. Most places did not offer wi-fi in the rooms. Of those who did, several were dumps and several had major construction projects going on next door. (Many new hotels being built in the Sois)

 

2 possible places. The Sandy Springs hotel has a great location on a quiet street but they charge per minute for the wi-fi. Next time I come I will try to negotiate that with them and see what happens.

 

Other hotel is the Baboona on beach road between Soi 3 and 4. They are more expensive and have no pool but a good location, nice rooms and a brand new workout room being put in. (1950 per night for sea view, 1650 no sea view)

I stayed on Soi LK Metro and had access to many unsecured wireless networks - free internet was all over the place.

Got to disagree about the mattresses. I've stayed at the PBR at least 5 times and found them to be the most comfortable mattresses I've used. Great for sleeping and other activities. But then maybe I like 'em hard.

 

Agree about the noise from adjoining rooms, although there was no construction noise when I was there last week.

 

Would also add that the quality of the food from the restaurant is superb. All in all an excellent mid-range hotel.

Stayed there last month, ended up checking out early and went to the Sabai Lodge(new wing) as for WiFi the Pattaya Bay Resort was much better, I just like the area of the Sabai Lodge. Also the lodge has a better pool if you care

Going to Pattaye Bay Resport in May-Jun08. The site advertises a Special Weekly rate for the off season but they did not show the price. I e-mailed their reservation line to inquire and I will post it here and on Shuggy's string as soon as I get a responce. Its low season and I will ask for a room away from others if possible. We will see. A good tip goes a long way I found. Extra Towels, Leave my AC on after room being serviced, hell, maybe I could even service the maid. :Bravo1:

The pool does indeed have jacuzzi, you have to press the button at poolside to switch it on.

A Puritan is someone who is deathly afraid that someone, somewhere, is having fun.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
