Jomtien Soi 9. Restaurants & Supermarket?


davidge

Recommended Posts

Planning well ahead for visit and liked the look of Jomtien Beach P******ses on Soi 9 but it doesn't appear to have a restaurant.

 

Does anyone on here know if there are restaurants within staggering distance and if there is a decent-sized supermarket or 7/11 close?

 

Thanks.

 

Edit: Having used street view on Google Earth, unless there's been a lot of development since Google were there, other than an Aussie Bar (walkabout?) it looked pretty quiet! Think I need to be closer to the start of Jomtien.

Hard not to stumble across a 7/11 or Familymart around there

 

No big supermarket close, but 10 minutes to Foodmart 24hr western market on the Baht Bus route.

 

No shortages of restaurants either.

Thanks for the reply. Looking at this place as well as Fifth the Residence & VT 2,5,7 at the moment.

Plenty of time to decide. Don't know Jomtien at all but haven't really fancied any of the hotels I've come across yet.

vt 2 or 5 are good locations right on baht bus route to pattaya,loads of bars etc within walking distance,from vt 5 you can walk from condo direct on to beach.vt 2 just across road 10 min walk to beach,5 newer building more modern than 2 but more expensive,great pools at 2a or b.stayed many times in 2 easy to get into town but far enough out for relaxing.

Thanks again. VT2A is now my favourite. Just can't get prices from Dancewatchers! Think I'll have to pick one of their best condos make a booking request and if it's too expensive then change to a lower one...then repeat until I get one that's cheap enough :-)

I did email Tik and was surprised to get a quick reply as it was 9pm Thai time!

 

I don't think I made my questions clear enough so the reply didn't help as much as I'd hoped.

 

No worries. Booking flight next week so I'll send a booking info form from the website then. Im planning well in advance so no rush to book something, I'm slowly getting used to the Dancewatchers website but find it very difficult to navigate!

I highly recommend Dancewatchers.  I stayed in View Talay 2 in May and it was a great location in Jomtien.  If you email Tik she always gets back to you quickly.  Love her condos.  Going to try VT6 next May for a change of pace but reserved through Dancewatchers again due to the great service!

I gave up on Dancewatchers in the end. Perhaps it was because I was booking well in advance so they thought it wasn't urgent!

They quoted an 'average' price for a condo in VT2A and said to ask about specific condo for confirmation. Picked a couple and they were very expensive - much higher than the average they stated. Asked for something cheaper and they suggested one that was still double the 'average'. I could gave gone on passing message after message and got nowhere. I don't understand how someone can run a holiday letting business and not give any idea of price on the website for VT2A.

 

In the end, I booked a condo in VT7 where the prices are clearly stated on the website and the renter gave quick, detailed answers.

Just wish my trip wasn't still so far away!

I always though the existing Jomtien Foodland was a gold mine. I saw it up for sale a few years back! The owner just got out in time, as the new Foodland will really impact the old Foodlands profits.

Dancewatchers business is suffering from being too successful in my view, as the level of service has been reduced while the asking prices are climbing.

are you talking about Foodmart

 

There has been a Foodmart here a long time, okay but pricey.    Foodland will open here next year, for the first time

Foodmart, 24 hours and the only one. Foodland will open around the corner, bigger, better, cheaper and will have great food too

They had one in the same location before and closed it to open a Family Mart which sucks (I rarely go into a Food Mart).  They recently closed the Family Mart and opened the Tops again.  While small, they have a decent selection of things which can tide you over until I can get the Tesco or Big C for  a regular shopping.  The soup stand outside of the Tops is excellent as well.  Eat there all of the time.

I realize that I am replying to a dated thread, but thought I would comment anyway.

 

I am using Dancewatchers for my trip that begins in 10 days. This is the first time I am using them and they were recommended to me by a few friends.

 

I have been very impressed with the communication from Tik. The web site seems ok to me. I have no idea what the site was like, back when a negative comment was made above.

    • 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.
