Just back from a 2-week holiday at the Cape Dara, we very much enjoyed our second visit to the Cape Dara, we had a great stay. Having recently retired we were looking forward to a very relaxing holiday and that’s exactly what we got at the Cape Dara Hotel. During our visit, we made a lot of use of both the Club Lounge and beach, at the Club Lounge we were very well looked after by ALL the staff, a huge thank you to ALL, great job and very professional, well worth looking at booking a room with Club Lounge benefits. Also, as I mentioned we made a lot of use of the beach, where there was a security guard who seemed to be there every day and who took great pride in keeping the beach area in front of the hotel clear and tidy, great to see him taking ownership of his little area of the hotel, not sure it would be in his job description! he was also always courteous, helpful and always polite, can you pass on our thanks to him, sorry not sure of his name. The other person who deserves a mention and special praise is our housekeeper May who did a great job looking after us for our two weeks stay, thanks so much. We won’t hesitate booking the Cape Dara in future when we visit Pattaya.

Nice hotel with amazing view of the ocean. A little further from Pattaya city a day it has a nice Radius family style restaurant. I don't stay there but we went there for the restaurant. The food was again international buffet with nice varieties.

This resort has sooo much to offer!! Rooms- spacious and views are breathtaking Pools- well maintained with the added bonus of pool bars Restaurants- Satisfactory for all travellers and diets.. not forgetting the sea view Private beech- Speaks for itself with loungers and beds Coffee shop- Open till 10pm with pastries, quiches and pies 👍 Transport- Complimentary which is very accommodating There is so much on offer that I could go on and on. Overall the management and staff are the best of the best from all my travels. I cannot speak highly enough. Very professional and hospitable to all travellers. If you do visit this resort... you will never be disappointed. Thank you Cape Dara.... hope to see you very soon!!👌🏼

Furniture in the room looked cheap and old, low quality breakfast (esp. coffee was the worst I've ever tasted), service not impressive, distant from the central area. Very mediocre overall. I don't know what is good about this hotel. I had excellent stays in Bangkok and was very disappointed when I arrived at Cape dara. I would definitely stay somewhere else and will not recommend to any of my friends or family.

This hotel has a great location on the beach. The infinity pool, and ocean side restaurant are pluses. My room had an amazing view, and I liked the wood floors. The negatives are that the housekeeping isn't good. There is mildew in my shower, and dust on the lampshades and on the towel rack in the bathroom. I went to the desk and specifically asked for these issues to be addressed, but I think there was a language barrier because I'm on day 3 and both are still present. The bed is also hard as a rock- some people like firm beds, but my shoulder is sore from sleeping on my side. Pattaya in general is not high end. It's affordable and family oriented.

Had a business trip to Pattaya and decided to stay on for a week. The hotel was selected by my company, but the pics looked good so thought I would risk it. Initial room was in the tower building and was quite nice. However for my stay I moved to a private pool room at over twice the price. Bit of a mistake really. The rooms themselves are very poorly maintained, and are feeling very tired. The private pool again feels old and isn't very clean with mould around all the edges. The beach in the brochure really only exists at high tide, the rest of the time it is a rocky shelf. The pool rooms are substantially overpriced considering what else is available in the area. The staff though are very friendly, especially in the club lounge. The Nitrogen bar is also very nice but most nights completely empty. The main pool is quite odd in that the hotel sells blow up toys and it's constantly full with people floating around on massive pink swans. Middle of the road hotel trying to be something it isn't.

First time stayed in Pattaya. We stay at Cape dare 18-21 June 2017 for 3 nights. But actually i travelled alot to Bangkok :) First impression when entered the lobby just okay. The lobby is side by side with the main pool. I also use 2 connecting rooms as 1 have 3 kids & 1 nanny everytime i travel. First night at Cape Dara, I found the aircon at my kids room is not cold. Also there was the water leaking from the aircon in my room. I thought my kids was playing with water. And late at night arount 12 midnight the engineer came & fixed the mess. Also the internet isnt working well in both 2 rooms. 2nd day after breakfast, I found my key card isnt working. My husband go to front office & surprisingly the reaction of the FO officer's answered was "today u should be check out, because your reservation is only for 1 night." I said my reservation is for 3 nights, how come ur system only recognize 1 nights only? I go to guess relation Manager Miss Irina. I told her all the problems during 1st nights. Shes very kind, helpful & very sorry for this mess. She offered me to move to higher floor, with upgraded room but not connecting. Yes we move to new room. We got a better & bigger room, the aircon & internet works properly.. thanks to miss Irina.. Me, hubby & kids enjoy the pool every day. We swim, we play & we also order pizza from the resto. The waiter i forgot his name, he is very helpful & kind also. As I know only 1-2 waiter who on duty in pool area. Thanks to him also for prepare my champagne for 2 days in a row by the Pool. 😊 thats made my day during my stay in Cape Dara Pattaya.

Very nice and warm welcome staffs, Unbelievable and Surprised for variety and good quality breakfast in the morning. In the hotel many check point for photographer. Nice Swimming pool, Room and restaurant all sea facing. They have a small cute kids club near by the coffee shop which have delicious cake and smoothies. Car parking very convenience at the high building connecting with the main building. Quiet location in the same time just fat from the town, convenience store just only 05 minutes by hotel shuttle bus.

Spent two nights here with a friend, we got a corner deluxe room which is very spacious and comfy. We used some Expedia points when we book so it was a really good deal. The bathroom is a bit stuffy though which we will have to leave the door open for ventilation, but the room offers a good view of the sea. We also love the scenery at the Radius restaurant. Food was ok but not very authentic. We also joined the yoga class in the early morning at the spa deck, there were only two of us so it's like a private lesson. We also went to the spa twice as there were spa coupons offered by the hotel when we check in. The location of the hotel is a bit far away from the city centre but it is relatively more quiet which is good for those who want a good rest. The bigger pool offers a good view of the sea, however the private beach is very small and coarse so it's not really for swimming. Overall it was a very nice stay at Cape Dara. Staff was very friendly and helpful too.

Location : Amazing ! I have never seen this view of Pattaya in my life even I'm Thai :) Service : Luxury 5 Stars service just like International hotel chains. Especially, K.Poon from Guest Relation I believe, who always make sure that we will get a excellence service during our stay. Thanks to her again. Food & Beverage : Above Standard with incredible view for most of the outlets Value of Price : It will be worthed every dollars that you pay for. Highly Recommended! Papungkron N.
