The setting is mostly of two-story villas scattered amongst established trees. It gives the feeling of a rural resort even though it is in an urban area. The bar/restaurant is excellent. Separated from the beach by just a path, and there are 2 (maybe 3?) nice swimming pools as well. I was in Pattaya for a conference and to be honest wasn't that enamoured by it, but this resort was a nice peaceful escape from the bustle of the town. The staff are uniformly friendly and efficient.

"My stay at Hotel Centara Grand Phratamnak, Pattaya"
The hotel stay was very comfortable and relaxing. Everything was clean. The staff were very friendly and obliging. The breakfast was very good with a wide verity of dishes. The only draw back was the distance from the happening places.
Unpleasant & Disappointing !!!
To start with, hotel staff/front desk was the worst I have ever seen. Really bad attitude & behaviour - cold, indifferent & callous. Never felt like we were a guest in the hotel & always had to struggle for every thing - small or big. Though the front desk team was challenged on English communication but the bigger problem was that they never had an intent to help. It was nightmarish even to make them show direction to a place on the city map they themselves had given.
Other aspect is the location of the hotel. Its located far off from the main road without any conveyance. So every time we had to walk long distances to & fro from the hotel. Whole night there was the disturbance of squeaking swings, ducks, barking dogs & god knows what all !!! Extremely uncomfortable...
I strongly recommend to avoid this hotel if you are visiting Pattaya with your family; not worth it...
Nice room design. A good hotel with good facilities. The buffet breakfast was sumptuous. A 10 minute walk to Pattaya Park where you continue to enjoy good food! After dinner, take a stroll back to the hotel. Perfect holiday! :)
