218/2-4 Moo.10, Beach Road, Pattaya, Pattaya 20260, Thailand
Pattaya has a bad rep as being "sleazy", but I felt fine taking my family here for a 3 day holiday. It's right along the beach away from the sleazy bar streets and actually has a really beautiful view of the water.
We stayed in a Deluxe Garden room which was big enough to add a roll away bed. It was very comfortable and had a TV, mini fridge, coffee maker and a big balcony. Make sure you sign up for Marriott Rewards so the internet access is free.
The breakfast buffet was very impressive with Asian and Western choices and lots of fresh fruit. The coffee was the real stuff, not Nescafe, and you could even get a cappuccino .
The pool is great and surrounded by gardens which makes it feel quite private. The staff were also really friendly to the kids and they loved the attention!
There's also a tour desk where you can arrange activities and transportation - the tiger zoo was the highlight of the trip and a must for animal lovers. There's also plenty of shopping and restaurants just outside the hotel so you'll never be bored.
Highly recommended for a family stay in Pattaya.
