Good clean hotel in excellent location”
I have stayed at the Areca Lodge Hotel on many occasions and am always impressed with the cleanliness, the friendly helpful staff and the general resources. this time I was able to recommend that friends of ours also booked rooms at the hotel ...knowing that they too would not be disappointed with the overall standard. The rooms are clean and tidy. the staff are always helpful .. the location is excellent both for shopping , visits to the beach ... and to the wide range of nightlife close at hand ( yet not at all obtrusive for hotel residents wanting peace and quiet ). For me additional features I appreciate are the availability of free buffet style breakfasts, a gymnasium, nice swimming pools , and free wi-fi . For all of these reasons i would have no hesitation in recommending the Areca Lodge Hotel to prospective visitors to Pattaya
WONDERFUL PLACE IN PATTAYA... CAN'T WAIT TO BE BACK”
I love it here in ARECA LODGE... people are nice... staff friendly. Clean. Lovely swimming pools... next to a nice the MALL, restaurants and cinemas, yet quiet and peaceful. I just love it here. Its not next to the pattaya beach. But its walking distance to the beach and near the main things in pattaya. Room rates are reasonable, in my opinion. and the breakfast buffet is AWESOME... really good price value in every way. all staff smile and are friendly to you here. good food. AWESOME SWIMMING POOL. its SAFE. and so clean. In fact, there are 3 resorts in one. also, it has a nice gym for you to walk the treadmill for an hour at a speed of your likeness and you will feel like a new man or new woman. guarantee. I feel happy to post this review as ARECA is my favorite place in PATTAYA.... try it... and have fun. .. Oh i forgot to mention. the only drawback is the annoying sales man standing outside the clothes store located in the ground floor.
Fantastic and frendly staff, great hotel”
This was my second stay at Areca Lodge. The first time was only for 5 nights and I was so impressed that this time I spent my whole 15 night holiday here. I have stayed at numerous hotels in Pattaya and in my honest opinion this hotel is the best available at this price point. The rooms are clean, of reasonable size and have comfortable beds. All the rooms we stayed in had 32" LCD TVs, fully stocked mini bar, room service and free shower gel, shampoo, soap, cotton buds, bottled water. The Deluxe rooms include free tea and coffee and a pool view. The only thing that let the room down was the small, dated bath room that had a rather small bath and a combi tap/shower over the bath. Other then the bath rooms the quality, fit and finish of the rooms is right up there with the best. The buffet breakfast is of a good standard and has a reason choice of Thai and european foods and drinks. the waiters and waitresses were great but the negative is there breakfast is only served until 09:30 in the corona building and up to 10:30 if you walk to the Evergreen block. What sets this hotel apart from others in Pattaya is the exceptional staff. They are always friendly, prompt to resolve any issues and they provide super service right through from reception to the cleaners.
Still the best”
We have stayed at the Areca about 20 times over the past 10 years. It is a superb hotel positioned in Soi 13 - near Pattaya 2nd Road and just 10 minutes from the beach. It really is like being at home as most of the staff are well known to us and have been there for a long time. The hotel is split into 3 parts - Areca lodge, Evergreen and Corona and has 2 great swimming pools. The hotel is spotlessy clean - the rooms are superb - and are cleaned thoroughly everyday. The restaurants are very good - a great choice - especially at breakfast time. There is a wonderful coffee room where they also serve wine in a marbled room with great aircon and comfy sofas. Outside is the Areca is the long bar which seats about 30 people and is managed by the wonderful bar manager Nas who looks after all customer's with equal customer service/friendliness. Every member of staff we have met is vey courteous, respectful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Location is good as it is a short walk to all the wonderful restaurants on Beach and Second roads - special mention for the Tipp Plaza seafood restaurants and the best of all the restaurant at the Maytara Hotel Soi 11. The Areca caters for all nationalities and offers the best customer service I have ever experienced- Please go there - it is superb
A friendly hotel treasure”
I enjoyed my recent stay at the Areca Lodge Evergreen Hotel and I do not hesitate in recommending this hotel to all Pattaya visitors looking for a comfortable hotel at a very reasonable price. While the Areca is not a 5* hotel, it is amazing how much quality they offer their guests. I liked my super deluxe room very much. It was roomy and comfortable. The balcony was a big plus as was the large bathroom. I was very pleased with the pool area. It was more expansive than I expected and it was maintained in sparkling condition. The restaurant surprised me too. I was not expecting much quality from the free breakfasts, but I was very pleasantly surprised. The coffee was excellent and I enjoyed the made to order omelettes. The hotel's location is also very good. This is an up and coming neighbourhood with many new condominums being built here. The hotel is conveniently located next to a large modern mall and of course near many restaurants and bars. So in conclusion, I liked the Areca very much. I give it two thumbs up. I will definitely stay here again.
Great Location and Top Notch Service”
I stayed at Areca Lodge between 11th Nov and 22nd Dec 2011. This was not my first stay at Areca Lodge and it won't be my last. I have stayed in both the Corona and Evergreen wings and both are recommended. The Hotel is located in a central part of Pattaya making access to other parts of town relatively easy. There are several bars, clubs close by. That said, the hotel is set back from the main road in its own grounds thus affording a high level of privacy and peace. I have always found the staff from the Receptionists to the room maids to be polite,friendly and helpful. Another excellent stay for me and I would definitely recommend Areca Lodge.
Clean, friendly hotel in an excellent location”
I have stayed at the Areca Lodge hotel on many occasions over several years and have always found it to be welcoming, friendly, clean and with all the facilities I want for my holidays. The staff are unstintingly helpful - going out of their way to provide unobtrusive, yet helpful support. The rooms are adequately furnished and are clean and of a good size. The hotel facilities are excellent and include swimming pools, restaurants, gymnasium facilities ...and free in-room wi-fi. On top of all this the hotel offers a splendid, buffet-style 'all you can eat' breakfast included in the charge. For me , Areca Lodge offers excellent value for money - and is always my first port-of-call when I am looking for a place to stay in Pattaya.
An Outstanding Little Gem ”
My stay at the Areca Lodge Hotel was unexpectedly wonderful and pleasant. Four days of beautiful hot weather had been absolutely stunning and gorgeous despite the humidity. The only drawback is just the nearby noisy bars at night so that is to be expected. Everything else has been extremely positive. The awesome Areca Lodge provided the most bang for the buck when you take the following into consideration as bonus points: * wonderful staff; * outdoor pool was very clean; * included daily breakfast; * cleanliness; * beach is only about a 10 minute walk; * convenience location. I would recommend Areca Lodge Hotel to anyone who is planning on making a visit to Pattaya, Thailand.
We stayed for seven nights and wish I had have cut my Bangkok leg by a few more days to stay here. Check in was first class, the hotel was very clean, rooms adequate, staff friendly (except for slender girl at breakfast). Food & Beverage Manager, Pichet went over and above with his staff to make breakfast a highlight of the day. The buffet was quite adequate, with Western & Asian cuisine, plentiful. The pools were magnificent and clean. The location was exceptional, we did not require any taxis to get around, except for arrival and departure. Restaurants, Food marts 711 stores,massage, bars were right on your door step. The only downside and that is all through Thailand, is the quality of wifi. Reception was much better around the pool or bar areas. There is a restaurant at the hotel, which was excellent. Housekeeping was excellent and usually down, once the make up sign was placed on the door. It was my wife's first trip to Pattaya and she loved the place. Will certainly be going to Pattaya again, but won't be going through the internet, searching for hotels. It will be Areca Lodge for us.
Always a Great Bet”
I always stay at the Areca Lodge when I have the chance. The hotel is nice...kinda like a diamond in the rough. It has 3 different areas within the hotel. I prefer to stay in the Evergreen because of its location near the pool and size of the rooms. It has easy access to the rear entrance which leads into the local mall/shopping area/Starbucks. Parking is plentiful. The main entrance is near the local LK Metro entertainment district and several really good restaurants. It is not far from the main roads that lead to the big malls and shopping districts. Great central location in Pattaya. I play golf with some local friends so it's a 4 min walk to my golf club bar. Staff is very nice and helpful. My only complaint is the late checkout option is over priced. They have a very good buffet breakfast open from 630 to 1030 every day. For the price, it's a bargain all around for me. But many folks just want a room to sleep in so there are many cheaper places for that requirement.
Great Hotel In A Great Location”
I stayed at the Areca Lodge and was accommodated in Building 3 Evergreen. The buffet which was included in the price was excellent. There was free WiFi throughout the hotel and although at times slow there was no problems with the reception in my room. It was nice to have a decent TV in a room and not having to watch the local Pattaya cable channel. There were channels which were of interest to me namely Star Movies, HBO and various news channels. The pool area was clean and there were plenty if sunbeds to choose from. The pool was well maintained and the whole site had perfectly maintained plants and shrubs. All in all I would thoroughly recommend this hotel to all and I will definitely stay at Areca Lodge again.
excellent hotel, with splendid service”
i have stayed many times at the areca lodge hotel, it is always my first choice when in pattaya ...because over the years i have found the staff to be friendly and helpful. the location is excellent ...close to the shopping and night life of pattaya, yet the hotel itself is a 'haven of peace and quiet ' away from the bustle of the streets. the free buffet style breakfasts are excellent ...and for me , the availability of a gym, 2 swimming pools and free wi-fi are an added bonus. all in all the areca lodge hotel offers great value for money.
One of my Favorites”
i enjoyed my stay at the areca lodge. i am a frequent visitor to pattaya and try a different hotel every trip. areca l;odge has bee the best so far. the rooms are not overly large but are more than adequate. they are clean and well appointed and house keeping does an excellent job. the staff of the areca lodge is excellent. i really appreciate the smiles at breakfast and speaking of breakfast, it is very good. the man on the front desk at night is not the most pleasant fellow but the rest of the staff make up for his short comings. one small complaint is that both gym are adequately equipped with a reasonably good selection of machines and free weights,at least as far as hotel gyms go, but the machines are poorly maintained. they need to be serviced. i would defiantly stay there again.
First class hotel”
This is the second time i have stayed at areca lodge hotel, and i really cannot fault it. The location is perfect, being right in the centre of pattaya, pattaya never sleeps, and this hotel puts you in a perfect spot to enjoy the night life, as much as you want. At the same time, the hotel is quiet, and very comfortable. The hotel has all you need for your holiday, 2 pools, gymnasium,massage, excellent food.And there is a lovely little beer garden at fornt of hotel, where you can enjoy a drink, whilst taking in some of the atmosphere of pattaya,with some entertaining, and amusing moments.
nice hotel with two good sized pools”
the areca lodge hotel is situated very central for me for going to entertainment venues etc.the buffet breakfast is one of if not the best buffet breakfast around in pattaya and would certainly give any 4 or 5 star hotel a run for its money. the two swimming pools are a good size and give sufficient exposure to and from the sun. all in all there is nowhere else that i would feel comfortable in staying in pattaya than the arece lodge. keep up the good work areca staff.
Clean, well situated hotel with good faciltiies”
i often stay at the areca lodge hotel when visiting pattaya ... i chose to go there initially for it's location and its proximity to the shopping and nightlife areas ...but return regularly as i have found the rooms to be clean and adequately appointed, the staff to be friendly and helpful ...and the hotel has all the facilities i look for...i.e. free breakfasts ( which are excellent - buffet style - with a good choice ), and use of free wifi and a gymnasium. although close to 'all the action' ... it is also a 'haven of peace' where one can relax in the comfortable rooms ...or enjoy the swimming pools and seating areas...with waiters on hand at all times to bring cool refreshing drinks to you at the poolside.
Areca Lodge Pattaya I stayed here in Dec 2020 The location is central for restaurants, bars and the beach etc. I enjoyed my stay here the staff were very helpful. I had the deluxe room with pool view there was a king size bed which was very comfortable the room is of good size with tea making facilities it was serviced every day. There is a wardrobe which also had a safe deposit box inside. There is a refrigerator. In the bathroom there was a shower over the bath. There is a buffet breakfast and a pleasant environment to enjoy your food. There’s are two nice swimming pools with loungers around the pool, and a mini bar to serve drinks but this was not operating while I was their due I guess to no foreign tourist and not enough guest at the hotel. So overall the hotel was good value simply because I got a discount due to there being no foreign tourist because of the virus pandemic. There is temperature screening carried out and hand sanitizer liquid. I will stay here again for sure.
Conveinient and clean”
Had a very relaxing and comforting 2 week stay at the Areca Lodge was greeted by the bell boy who took my luggage and guided me to reception, went through the details and was asked for 1000bht for the minibar, explained I wouldn't be needing the minibar but assured me it was a deposit and I would have my money returned at the end of my stay if I hadn't used the bar. Taken to my room a deluxe pool view double which was slightly smaller than I expected but was very clean and well presented. A nice sized bed which was very comfy, tv with various channels for different nationalities, movies and sports channels though on some channels picture quality was lacking. In room safe that can be locked by code or your credit/ debit card. Bathroom was average sized with bath and shower facilities and the balcony with a view of Pattaya. Staff at the hotel were always friendly and helpful if you needed directions or advice or if you had any problems with your room they would try to resolve ASAP. Breakfast was ok had something for everyone and an egg station so you can get an omelette or fried/ scrambled eggs, pastrys, fruit, cereal a wide selection. I never used the pool on my stay as the weather was a bit of a dampner but from what I saw looked ok think they also have a second pool on the Evergreen Wing. Hotel also boasts a hairdresser and beauty shop, tailors, gym and Internet cafe. Most of the nightlife areas are close or a 5-10 minute walk, LK Metro across the road, Walking street 10 minutes away, close to mikes shopping mall and within walking distance of shops, bars and restaurants. I will stay here again on my next trip.
Excellent value - great location - nice facilties”
I have stayed at Areca Lodge on a number of occasions over a number of years. I always find it to be excellent value for money. The staff are largely helpful and friendly, the rooms are clean and adequately appointed. There is now free wi-fi available in rooms ...and a gym which for me was an important factor. Its central location is ideal for anyone wishing to get out and about and see the range of things Pattaya has to offer ...be it entertainment, eating or shopping everything is close at hand ...as are excellent transport facili-ties. Areca Lodge is a splendid base for anyone visiting the city.
Luxury at an affordable price”
The new Evergreen building of the Areca Lodge complex allows you to stay in luxury at an affordable price. The room presents very well with timber flooring, feature walls, large balcony overlooking the pool complex and flat screen TV. The pillows are the best I have used in a hotel- ever. Whilst large and functional, the bathroom was a little disappointing in that it was just standard in its facilities and design. An opportunity missed. Areca is close to all the nightlife that Pattaya offers, has major new shopping malls no more than 10 minutes walk away and just 10 minutes to the beach. I will return again and again.
