Profile: North Pattaya

Profile: North Pattaya

North Pattaya is a tranquil strip. You’ll find several shops and colorful bars on Second Road, but it’s the calm azure waters washing over the sand that are most impressive here. If you crave entertainment, lively Walking Street is a short bus ride away.

Heritage runs deep here, too. The seaside Prasat Satchatham temple is considered one of the world’s most impressive architectural creations. You can also visit the renowned Bottle Art Museum, where miniature sculptures of Buddhas, Chinese landmarks, and Thai homes reside inside sleek glass vessels.

    Disappointing for a 5-star hotel

    I have stayed at many 5-star hotels in Thailand. This has been one of the more disappointing 5-stars I have stayed at. Pros: - Khun Jay at the front desk did everything he could to find me a complimentary upgrade as part of being a gold member with - Maintenance and housekeeping were quick to fix any problems in the room - The hotel really is a photographer's paradise Cons: - The hotel was not welcoming. A simple greeting and smile front the front desk staff, cafe staff, etc. would have been comforting. However, many hotel staff do not acknowledge you (rather, they look the other way and pretend you don't exist). I am not saying this is mandatory, but as a 5-star hotel, it would be a nice, welcoming gesture. - The room had some pre-existing problems (stench from the drains, sliding door was stuck, etc.). However, as mentioned before, I am appreciative of the maintenance staff for quickly trying to resolve the issue. - The breakfast staff was inefficient. All three times I had breakfast, there seemed to be many staff members, but only one host that can lead guests to their tables. This resulted in many guests waiting longer than needed for their tables. - The location is very secluded (some people might like the seclusion, but I found it to be inconvenient to get places) Overall, hospitality is the key to a great hotel. Cape Dara is still a great hotel, but they can become an even better one with some simple fixes.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A beautiful resort located at North Pattaya. Contains 2 swimming pools with good view of the ocean, and a private beach front which may be a little rocky. The hotel is very beautiful and many couples were taking lots of instagram photos on the venue. The rooms were very comfortable and the service in general quite good. Food at the hotel is considered to be of good quality, though there could be a wait for the morning buffet during the high session which is a let down. One issue that I wasn't happy about was that the Ming Xing chinese restaurant was not open during our stay. It was one of the reasons we wanted to stay at the hotel as we wanted to try the place as there were some good review of the place. Unfortunately, it was closed since the Covid-19 situation and not reopened, though there were lots of advertisements around the hotel about the place, which was a little confusing.

  • 6.0.Good

    Nice resort but brought down by amenity, inexperience service staffs and no VIP status room upgrade. This is not the first time I stayed in this hotel. Last stay was quite pleasing but no VIP room upgrade. I stayed in Dara Suite which has Bulgari bathroom kit. This was hot summer day and I need more than one bottle of shampoo and shower gel. I request for one more shampoo and shower gel but I received normal shampoo and shower gel which is offered in a normal room. I asked staff about this and he said that it was a policy to give only one set per room per stay. In my opinion, I don’t think it does make sense for one small set of toiletries for 2 people in a hot summer day. I drove out and bought those myself in a shopping mall. Room was great and clean. Service in check in area was impressive but staffs were somewhat inexperienced. I asked to book a spa but she took multiple attempts to book for me. Eventually, she made it. I asked about dining options and promotions, she could not give me a understandable information and I needed to figure it out myself. Breakfast buffet was great at ground level restaurant. At executive club, food selection was not that great and quality was acceptable.

    Private balcony with a spa bath is recommended. A sip of wine while relax in the spa bath after sunset is energizing.

    Beautiful property. Access to beach and 2 infinity pools. Breakfast area has a beautiful view, big selection of food. They offer a free shuttle service to Terminal 21 mall. Drop off and pick up. Super convenient. Only con I can think of is, hotel seems to be understaffed for the pool bar and for the breakfast buffet. Waited a while for a drink I ordered and tables aren't cleared at the buffet as fast as other places.
