Resort style vs guestroom


Kendrickrio

Recommended Posts

Thought I might stay in a resort style accomodation this time around.

Can I ask those of you who stay in Resort style what are the benefits that you look for?

As I get older I dont mind reading a book lounging by the pool being served on by staff,then you have the fitness facilities and Sauna and Spa in many of them, beats trying to find things to do in the day.

What are the best affordable resorts in Pattaya ?

What are the advantages/disadvantages of guesthouse vs. hotel? Planning first trip in November and aside from security/reception and facilities is there anything else?

Resort type? Sabai Resort on Second Rd opposite Soi 2. 

Main disadvantage of guesthouse is lack of pool. Also, more difficult to be 'anonymous '.

You can only be so anonymous when your TG for the night/day have to leave their ID card each visit. Everyone nearby sees what is happening with the ID. In some ways, a guest house makes you more anonymous when it has a separate entrance like some I have considered staying in.

Maybe. I was thinking more of those that are basically a few rooms above a bar where you go through the bar to get to your room.

I stay in condos anyway so no leaving ID etc.

Had a feeling you were but wasn't sure. I haven't stayed at a guest house yet but looked at a few my last trip. I'm planning to stay in one on Soi 6 a couple of nights this coming trip with external entrance to rooms. So no need to go through bar.

If it's your first trip then I would just stay at a hotel. Guesthouses are better for long stays and/or budget travelers. hotels in Pattaya are cheap and offer great value. Many hotels will call your room after the lady leaves to make sure everything is alright.

Yes I am thinking more about the "facilities" on offer .

Fitness centres on site rather than pay additional for an outside gym.

Sauna and Spa rooms, Swimming pools , lounges , sun decks ,  more or less activities to do during the day On site.

I have come across Zing Resort and Spa in Jomtien in which  I may stay a few nights , seems reasonably priced at average 1200 baht a night along with the facilities it offers.

I guess I am becoming bored with the Guesthouse rooms and looking for more during my holiday.

Great benefit of a decent guesthouse is that everyone can get to know one another although guests can melt into the background if they Desire. Guests tend to get more of a personal service from the resident staff. Resorts and hotels have much wider facilities. They are both great as long as they are good quality residencies but it all depends in what as a customer you want.

You are aware that Zing is a Gay hotel in the gay area of Jomtien?

In a Guesthouse you are either in your room or out on the street. At a hotel you''ve got more options, like hanging at the pool side or in a garden. I like to be outside but in the shade.

Well theres hotels, Guesthouses and Resorts

Has anyone stayed in the Dara Suite Resort ?

You never really have to leave the resort with its own cinema etc

May I ask what a "turn down" service is?

Turn down service is when the housekeeping staff re-enters your room later in the day after straightening your room in the morning.

 

They straighten your room again, and "turn down" the sheet and comforter on your bed and fluff the pillows so that your sleeping accommodations are fresh and ready for you when you return to your room at night.

 

It's basically a second, lighter maid service. In some nicer hotels they may put a towel folded in the shape of an animal or a few chocolates on your pillow as an additional nice gesture.
