Areca lodge Vs Pattaya bay resort vs August suites


Recommended Posts

Iam planning to trip to pattaya. having stayed at pattaya bay resort, flipper, diana oasis and a few more, but would like to try another hotel.


I am thinking of staying at PBR again, but also saw Areca Lodge and August Suites.


Any recommendations on which of the three to stay?


good wifi reception in the room is important. seems all of them has got a nice pool.

If staying at Areca Lodge I probably would stay at deluxe room! but any recommendation would be welcome.

Areca lodges location in hard to beat. A little more expensive than the other two though.

In my honest opinion, although PBR is a good hotel a believe it's a little dated looking.

Areca Lodge wins imo. Location is great, WiFi is good. Deluxe rooms are lovely. Price is OK.

Stayed there last month for the first time and will stay there again. WIFI, location, balcony, water pressure and nice bed. All positive.

I always stay at the PBR, mainly because I know the staff there, it's very friendly and always kept clean and secure.  It's good value for around 1,000 baht a night.

Only stayed at one out of those mentioned (August suites) and on my one stay i would recommend it,nice rooms,pool area,staff dont interfere, they were very helpfull when i needed them though.The breakfast isnt up to much but thats the least of my requirements.

I have stayed at all the hotels mentioned over the years

If on a low budget stay at the PBR but in my opinion could do with a refurb

If budget does not come into the equation

Not much in it with the other two

But Areca would win hands down on location

I agree that August Suites is best. As far as location, depends on where you plan on going. You like to walk a bit, you are comfortable with the baht bus system, there are bars down by August and it isn't that far off baht bus 2nd road route. You take motobike taxi and it doesn't matter. 

When I stayed at August I took the short walk down to Soi Baukhoa and rode it to WS or LK Metro.  Would catch a baht bus going North on Baukhoa and it goes right by August. Catch baht bus on 2nd going North and get off at Klang then it is two minute saunter to August Suites

From a location perspective in my opinion the Areca is great. Easy access to LK Metro, Soi Honey & other adjoining spots with easy access to Baht busses heading to WS or Soi 6 off Beach and Second Rd. I would recommend the Evergreen building there as it is newer.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
