My husband and I stayed at Baraquda with our very active 22 month old son. The level of service provided by the staff is indescribable. We've stayed at many hotels around the world but hands down found the staff at this hotel to be the absolute best....ever. They treated our son like loyalty! Front desk staff went out of their way every time they saw him to greet and play with him. During breakfast they generally entertained him so we could eat peacefully. Specially one of the chefs! She was amazing! For breakfast, unlike other hotels that line up hot food, they make theirs made to order and there are no limits. You can alter your meals and request them as you like. There are also the usual breads, pastries, cereals, fruits etc to eat endlessly. We were often greeted by the managers who took time to socialise with us and ensure we are enjoying our stay. That has never happened to us anywhere else! The rooms are quite nice and modern. The shower is lovely and large but has no door (and glass wall facing room). Admittedly the doorless shower was a bit of a challenge with our curious toddler but we managed. The cleaners were also friendly and attentive. The pool is wonderful with plenty of bedding to relax on. You'll need to take footwear as the pool deck tends to get extremely hot in the soaring sun. When we were leaving, front desk staff literally came outside and stood by our taxi waving as we parted. It was like saying goodbye to family. Just beautiful!!

"a good design hotel that needs some improvement."
i like how the staff greeted us and seems so friendly, but the check-in process was tedious.
room was clean and quite spacious, bathroom was nice and clean, but there are some improvement needed to be made as the bed was awful, it was too soft, and the breakfast variety was too little.
Arrived prior to check in time but room was available immediately, despite some confusion about which building included in Expedia booking. Despite visiting during Thai New Year celebrations, hotel facilities were not overloaded and staff were very attentive and helpful. Easy access from room to pool area was appreciated. Proximity of local transport and a variety of food outlets and restaurants was a plus. The beach is nearby, although this isn't the best in Thailand by any means.

Check-in was really fast and they gave everyone a refreshing welcome drink. We had booked 2 rooms which were connected. One room would be enough for 2 adults and a pre-teen but we had our elder son with us and we wanted more space in case a relative would like to join. The rooms were in good condition, very clean, plenty of amenities(hair dryer, ironing board and flash-light). Our room had a sea view and view of the water park.
We didn't eat breakfast at the hotel because we thought it was too expensive (400 baht/person; 300 baht/person if agree at check-in),plus there are street vendors along the beach front. The beach is less than 5 min walk from the hotel. We really enjoy the water-park and the staffs were very friendly.

I have been thailand 17 times and many times Pattaya......dont know where those negative reviews come from but this hotel is the best i did in Pattaya so far for quality/price and especially location !!.....10 minutes walk to walking street and the hotel is front beach !!
Greeted by a very friendly doorman and a welcome drink. Check-in was fast and the bell boy showed me to my room and a quick guide to the room and use of facilities.
Hotel was undergoing some minor flooring work on my floor on the 5th floor, but it wasn't a problem.
Overall, great hotel, friendly staff and a good location, would stay here again.
