Lovely family stay.

The rooms are spacious, nice decor but some of it needs updating. I wish the beds were more comfortable they should be fitted with mattress topper as they are hard. Nice touch is that you can use the mini bar for free( few soft drinks and snacks) We had a connecting room with our children. The pools are great there is also little gym and nice spa ( you have to pay for everything in the spa) treatment are ok I had milk bath and facial, the have many promotions at the spa. Food is good but the breakfast is bit chaotic and thing are placed at random like the egg station is far away from your bacon which is next to yogurt. For 5* resort the choice of food should also be slightly wider. Overall the hotel is very nice staff are helpful. We had a very nice stay. There is a complimentary shuttle bus from the hotel to the center, from there you can take a taxi to walking street. Pattaya is really big lots to see, lots of walking. There is a sandy beach but you are not be able to swim in the sea as there is lots of sharp rocks under the water. This is a honest review. The hotel is good and I would recommend it there are few things that I would prefer to mark it 5 rather than 4.

Great for families not so much for couples

World

My hubby and I just came back from our one week holiday at Cape Dara. We did enjoy our stay there but it wasn't totally what we had dreamed for our holiday. It is located about 10 min walk away from Terminal 21 shopping centre. Even though it's only a short walk it can be quite hard because of that humid hot weather. The hotel runs shuttle bus services every 15 minute or so from the hotel to the round about which is near by Terminal 21. It is convenient but sometimes you miss your turn when there are too many people waiting for it. But I guess its better than nothing at all. They have two pools but if you turn up too late you might not get a beach chair and there were always a lot of kids in the pools so we found it quite hard to relax by the pools. We wish there were an adult only pool. So if u want a quiet and peaceful place, then this isn't for you. The view from our room was spectacular over looking the ocean but to be honest it is a bit outdated. Air con worked too well though that some nights we had to turn it off over night because we couldn't adjust the temp and it was way too cold haha Breakfast was just average with western and asian standard foods but the view from the restaurant was very nice. We always sat by the balcony enjoying the view while having our brekkie every morning. They don't take coffee orders. Instead they have 3 coffee machines but only had 1 working while we were staying. Overall it was a good stay but we won't visit again. It was way too busy for our liking. Maybe it's like that every where in Pattaya but we might take our chances if we ever visit Pattaya again.
