Recent guest reviews
I have been coming here for years and for good reason. It is the best hotel for location and comfort and value in central Pattaya. Gigi and Cheese and Pete and Pepe and May in the Sea restaurant and the rest of the staff are very welcoming and treat you like an old friend. And how can I forget about KF! Highly recommended.
Hi, I visited the hotel with friends the hotel is amazing to look at. The staff was friendly , the rooms where alright but the quality of the beds could be improved. A special mention for the manager Ms Cofi who was really friendly, made us feel very welcomed and helped to introduce us to the buffet which was delicious. We where recommended breakfast in bed promotion which I would personally recommend to every quest that comes to the hotel. My stay was excellent I will definitely come back to stay again.
We like the hotel design and the open bath tub inside the room, the room is clean, staff can speak English well and provide excellent service also this hotel is convenient to go around Pattaya and walking street.
We booked Baraquda for four nights. Our expectations were high, this hotel is MGallery by Sofitel and the pictures on their website are tempting. Check-in was fast and friendly. Our room at fifth floor was facing the pool but also the shopping center next to the hotel. There was several A/C machines on the roof of that building, rather noisy. The layout of the room was interesting, round bed in the middle of the room and bathroom was combined directly to it. In the evening we noticed, that there was ants in the bed. So we contacted the reception and after a while we got a suite on 4th floor. Two huge rooms and even jacuzzi behind the bed. Unfortunately this suite was located so, that a lot of noise from neighboring area and streets comes to it. So we were awake until 4 a.m.. Next morning we had to change the hotel. Staff at the reception was very cooperative and they regret what happened -and we checked out. But there are also positive points. The pool area is nice. Breakfast was good and we also had lunch at the restaurant, tasty food and friendly service. Location of this hotel is super, if you want to be in the city center of Pattaya. The staff was very friendly, easygoing and polite, specially at the reception.
Let me state this right from the start, this NOT a 5-star property. Nor would I even consider it a strong 4-star ... maybe 3.5. However, what it lacked in terms of luxury accommodations, it made up for it with an excellent and convenient location, comfortable room, and a knowledgeable and professional staff Upon initial arrival, my room was missing face towels. I told the front desk about this and they had towels to me almost immediately.. As far as the rooms go, they are just okay. It's pretty clear that the rooms are in need of a modern/contemporary refresh, but it was comfortable enough for anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the action in Pattaya. By the way, you won't have any problems staying cool, the A/C in the room gets really cold. You can certainly adjust it to your liking. If you want to get some insight and recommendations during your stay in Pattaya, be sure to ask for KF .. that's right "K" "F". She has a unique name and a wonderful, professional personality. There are a ton of hotels in Pattaya to choose from, I would recommend giving this one a look. Just set your expectations accordingly and you will be pleased.
Location is what attracted us to this place,we stayed here for 3 days the rooms are ok but are definitely in need off a freshen up as it is getting old.We had breakfast one morning and there where dirty plates and cups on the table it took the staff 25 mins to clean and then finally take our Oder the waiter made numerous mistakes and took over 10 mins just to get our coffees,food came out around 45 mins later.if your looking for a hotel that has a good location and service this is not definitely the place
recommendable very central starting point and still very quiet. Only 2 Minutes to the beach and 5 minutes to the Walkingstreet. Breakfast offer roomservice Pool and Gym complete the whole thing Roomservice is excellent as requested.
Left one day at 8:00 came back at 4:15 and room still not cleaned. Had to wait around to clean room. Didn't receive an "I'm sorry". Breakfast pretty good. Rooms and lobby are cold. Like many hotels transportation (taxi etc) are overpriced.
I just spent a couple of days with a few friends at this resort. First impressions once entering the lobby both visually and the friendliness of the staff were amazing. Very impressed with the design and view of the great pool right behind the lobby. Check in was simple but was confused on the fact we did a mobile check in but still seemed to do all the regular steps so not sure what value doing it had. Rooms were very modern and effectively laid out. Bed was comfy and sheets were very clean. The only general negative comment is some rub wear marks could been seen on the furniture from use. This is really the only minor factor that stopped me just short of this being a five star hotel. The restaurant was excellent with both the quality of food and view overlooking the awesome pool. Hotel location to the beach and the heart of the nightlife was perfect. Desk staff were great with arranging transportation back to BKK in the early morning hours. I will definitely be returning as the hotel had the right feel and location for a great price.
Allways enjoy my stay at Baraquda the rooms are excellent and well presented. All the staff are so help full and pleasant. This morning Gigi contacted me for a surprise up grade whoo what an up grade . Pepe also had a gift two days earlier left in my room. I cannot recommend Baraquda highly enough for most fantastic experience. Thank You to Gigi. Pepe .Kf.Jack and all the friendly staff. Cheers from Bryan .back again soon
