Great location and spacious room.”
My wife and I had a wonderful 4 nights stay at Sandalay Resort Pattaya. The hotel location is great at the start of Pattaya Beach Road. The deluxe room is spacious and clean. Air con is good. Breakfast has lots of varieties. Its near to all the major shopping mall along Beach Road or Second Road. Carpark lots is limited though. The receiptionist is moody which I dont care. But the elderly security working in the day shift brighter our day everytime because he is polite and helpful and would greet us everytime he sees us. My wife and I would be staying here again when we visit Pattaya again. I would also recommend it to others.
Good choice Hotel's”
It's surprise for us when i came at sandalay hotel. I think that is better choice for all hotel i picked for this thailand trip. Perfect location i had for price i payed. Wonderful 4 day 3 night at sandalay. Just 1 minute to beatiful beach, walking distance to attraction, shooping, food and many more. Easy to reach Walking Street... take regular transportation just for THB 10, you can go to Balihai pier to to Corral Island ( "Koh Larn" in Thai ) That place for motorised water sport. Staff performance is perfect and helpfull. Next time i will coming back to Sandalay Hotel. I highly recomendate this hotel for who's come to Pattaya.
Perfect location, always friendly efficient staff”
I have stayed at Sandalay 6 times now and Lthough it it not the newest hotel around it hits all the marks for service, and atmosphere. The foyer and pool area flow through an open plan design which has recently been refurbished. The Redsteps restaurant has fantastic views to the beach action which is the main feature of Pattaya Beach. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff in particular the daytime security/car park attendant who is always most helpful whether e you need to hire a motorbike to general directions. On a couple of occasions I had the restauarnat deliver their fantastic club sandwiches across the road to the beach while I was enjoying a leg massage and beers, an reasonable request is performed efficiently and with a smile.
Many of my friends from Thailand have stayed at the Sandalay in the past and have always praised it as a good place to stay. I thought it was time for me to do the same since I am a frequent traveller to Pattaya. I was surprised by the size of the rooms, the friendly service from staff and the quality of the breakfast fare.Although I am staying at a different hotel this week in Pattaya I would have preferred to have stayed at the Sandalay. I will stay at the Sandalay in future since it provides excellent value for money.
We loved it.”
The hotel is a little haven in the middle of this infamous town. It sits on the side of the main beach road, the beach being directly across the road. You can sit in the open air bar/restaurant sipping reasonably priced local and international beers or have a delicious equally reasonably priced meal. The hotel is a 6 storey affair that is 500 yards behind the restaurant so we were never troubled by any noise during our stay. The reception is a very grand affair with a large private swimming pool and sunbathing area off to one side. Pattaya has a certain notoriety but you have to go and find it, we were there for a family holiday with our 6 year old son and at no time were we aware of or pressured by the towns 'other side'. The beach is wonderful and there are easily accessible theme parks and shopping centres. What makes this place, though, is the staff... The Land of Smiles certainly gave them a generous helping. Nothing is too much trouble and they take a really genuine interest in you, making sure that your stay is most memorable and comfortable. Jimmy, our son, was made to feel so welcome that he quickly felt right at home.It is the second stay that we have had here and, if we go back to Pattaya (likely) it will not be our last.
Wouldn’t go anywhere else in Pattaya”
I have been coming to Pattaya at least twice a year for the past 6 years and I actually never look for anywhere else when I am booking. At present I am here for a month. They have refurbished the whole place over the las few years to a very high standard. The hotel is on the Beach Front road so a 10 metre walk and you’re on the beach. The room is serviced daily, it is spacious and has a brilliant walk in shower (monster size and limitless hot water). Breakfast is amazing a buffet selection of hot food from around the world plus fresh fruit and vegetables as well as the normal staples. The thing that makes it so special is the staff... happy, friendly Thais who can’t do enough for you and are always ready to chat. I can’t recommend the Sandalay highly enough
Thank you for sharing this excellent review following your recent stay with us. We are delighted to learn that you had a pleasant stay with us and was impressed with the comfort of our room as well as the service you received from us. We hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you back soon.
The Sandalay is great hotel that offers reasonable comfort at an affordable price. It is good for family stay and is right on the beach road in Pattaya. The hotel has reasonable size rooms that were well kept and clean. The toilet was spacious and adequately stocked. The hotel had enough parking which allowed for us to park our car comfortably. The staff was courteous and the food was good!
Good Hotel & Good Rooms With Friendly Staff ”
We stayed three nights at Sandalay Resort Pattaya and our stay was wonderful. The location was good and just opposite to the Beach and the staff are helpful and cooperative. The rooms were big with big bathroom and they have wide selection in Breakfast Menu as well. The rooms were neat and tidy and we didnt had any problem.
Nice hotel with convenient location”
Sandalay resort is definitely a thumbs up hotel to stay with spacious, clean and convenient location just a few steps walk to the breathtaking beach in Pattaya. As me and my beloved spent holiday here and looking for a quiet and comfortable place in Pattay. the sea view room package booked was definitely a good choice for us, we enjoyed our own private time with a bttle of wine with the sea wind blowing through the window in the balcony. It was an unforgettable holiday for us. Sandalay resort may be a good choice for a romantic breakaway stay in Pattaya.
Basic and comfortable”
We stayed at the Sandalay for 3 nights. It is located right across the road from the beach. It is far enough away from the Pattaya nightlife that you can completely avoid it while being close enough that one can walk to find some evening entertainment is her or she wishes. We liked the style of the standard room but we immediately upgrade to a Standard Plus room upon seeing the ugly view and hearing the noisy industrial-strength air conditioners from the adjacent building. The Standard Plus room was nice. It was quiet, we could see the ocean and the room had big windows. The bed was comfortable and the washroom was clean and trendy. The shower has a big floor to ceiling window in it (with a blind that can be pulled down if you like) so one can look out into the main room if he or she wishes. The toilet does not have a “washer” beside it—some people may like this but longtime residents of Asia might prefer to have the option. The free wireless internet in every room is convenient. The breakfast at the Sandalay is above average considering the price of the room. They change parts of the menu daily (juices, prepared foods, etc) so that it doesn’t become boring for guests that are staying several nights. Moreover, the breakfast is served in their outdoor restaurant with a sea view—it makes for a great way to start the morning.
Good Value and Nice Rooms”
I really liked this hotel despite a few problems. The Deluxe Plus rooms are spacious, nice beds and great views of the beach and islands. I initially booked deluxe with breakfast and we were facing another hotel. I paid 500 Baht a day more to move to the other side of ther hotel with a sea view. Really nice outlook. The downside was that any noise/music from outside could be heard and woke my partner who likes to sleep in. We had bad neighbours using the two rooms opposite. Men with bad manners and disregard for anyone including the hotel staff. After two nights with loud voices, banging on doors until 4am, etc, we complained. It appears these type of people are in Pattaya for one thing and act like a pack of hungry dogs. It was repulsive. The hotel manager apologised to us and sent letters to both rooms. This gave us a quiet night the night before these people left. The manager also gave us a basket of fruit and an apology letter. The staff were very friendly and nice. They made an effort to make our stay enjoyable. I believe that Sandalay Resort was a good choice because it was great value for money. I would stay here again.
Great Hotel On Beach Road”
I was very impressed with this hotel. I’ve stayed in a lot hotels in Pattaya and I would have to say this one is at the top of my list now. We stayed there for the last 2 days of Songkran. It was located in the perfect location to get there from the bus terminal. With all the traffic it only took us 30 minutes to walk. If you tried to get the baht bus or motorcycle taxi it would have taken much longer and they wouldn’t have been able to get you to the hotel anyway. I usually do pros and cons but honestly I don’t have any cons with this hotel. People have stated in their reviews the shower was too small. I didn’t think so. The room is a perfect size to relax and sleep. What else are you looking for in a hotel in Pattaya?? The pool was great and a good size. The buffet breakfast was one of the best I’ve had in Pattaya. The staff were excellent. You’re able to sign out towels to take with you to the beach as well. I will definitely be booking here in my future trips.
Thank you for your excellent feedback and we are looking forward to welcome you again in the nearly future.
Great rooms and breakfast”
Sandalay Resort Pattaya was not a disappointment for us. The location is great - not to near the bars of walking street but not to far from shops, convenience stores and restaurants. My two friends and I had a great time staying at the hotel.
we are a young couple from pakistan, we have stayed in this hotel for the second time. previously i stayed in standard room but this time we decided to upgrade to deluxe grand and seriously i wasn't disappointed.. i just had to go through a little bit of trouble at check in, i was more interested to get the deluxe grand room right on the front part of the building, but unfortunately due to high peak season due to russian holidays hotel was over-booked. none the less view and space in the room was much better in the backside of the building, house keeping service was better than ever re-do of the hotel has been done exactly dated from last year during the same period of the year.. hotel is right on the beach, pool is awesome, location is not right in the busy-nosiy part of pattaya very easily accessible to anywhere to the main nightlife of pattaya and if you are a muslim halal food is not even a worry, you will find shawarma/doner halal kebab sandwiches almost 24/7. i will surely going to stay here over and over again.
Great Stay Once Again”
This is my 3rd stay at Sandalay. The staff know me now and give me the same room every time. I wanted to extend an extra night and they really helped me out - I didn't even have to change my room and they gave me a great rate. The breakfast buffet is good also, only if you plan to be awake before 10:30am though. For what you pay, you get a great product with this hotel. I will always recommend it and will continue to stay there on my weekend jaunts to Pattaya.
Sandalay is a great place to stay. Centralized, just across the street from the beach. Lots of things to do around the hotel, shopping, sightseeing, nightlife. Rooms were comfortable, airconditioners was felt great coming in off the street from the hot sun, got so cold one day my wife had to turn it off. The best thing i liked was the Staff and there help of our needs. I had to pick my wife up from the airport and take her back. I gave them a short notice of her flights and they had a private car take us to the airport for a cheap price. My overall stay at Sandalay was outstanding.
Great positoin but could do with a refurbishment”
I have been to Pattaya now 3 times and every time I always stay at the Sandalay.This time how ever I had only booked in for 4 nights and was staying in Pattaya for 15 nights and was going to look around at other hotels and compare and see if there was better for value and positoin which I did and could not find better and ended up staying for the whole 15 nights.The only fault I can say about the room I was in is that it did,nt have any draws for my cloaths. The grand delux room.But besides that I can say good value and good locatoin and staff.I will be going to Pattaya again in about 8 to 10 months and will be staying at the Sandalay agian for sure.
Great little hotel”
I arrived late Friday night around 11pm. I had booked a standard, but they gave me a standard plus as an urgrade. It had a small view of the ocean, but as it was located in the front was much quieter than the standard rooms in the back of the building are supposed to be. For what you pay - you get a lot. This isn't a Ritz Carlton - so you shouldn't expect the best. But for what you would get - this is a great place to stay. My room was clean and had modern amenities. A small refridgerator, good air conditioner, small lcd mounted on the wall in front of the bed, cool shower with glass window facing into the room, clean towels, 2 free bottles of water per day. I was located in the corner of the floor (room 345) so it was pretty quiet. No drunkards screaming in the hallways late at night. Yes, you can hear people shutting the doors to their rooms - but so what? The balcony is small, but still nice to step out onto. Mine had a view of the swimming pool. The front desk staff are very nice. I checked out about 30 minutes late and no problem at all. There are two small elevators int he building - sometimes have to wait about 2 minutes, but no big deal. The restaurant has good food and the buffet is worth it if you plan to be up that early (it ends at 10:30am). There is a computer in the lobby with internet access you can use for free, and wi-fi in the rooms but dowsn't really work. No safe in the standard rooms either, but not a big deal for me. The location is literally right across the street from the beach. Walking street is a short ride on one of the trucks. It's a bit away from the madness, which is good, because the madness is close if you want it, but not so close it bothers you. I would definitely come back and stay here. I live in bangkok so have seen a lot of hotels when I go down to Pattaya. This one is great value and above average product for what you pay.
A hotel that never lets you down”
i have stayed at the sandalay before on my trips to pattaya and have never once been disappointed with the sevice or the quality of the rooms. this particular weekend was chakri day and the hotel was booked out by thai families from bangkok so you know that when the locals book the 0place out it has to be good.
Good location ”
Good location, nice view, good breakfast, good staff, clean, quiet and nice pool. The room was good with plenty of space but the balconies were too small even to put a chair on. The addition of the rainfall shower is good but they had not updated the drainage to cope, so the bathroom floor flooded every time it was used. The bath is very small and cannot sit and straighten your legs. Could not change any settings on the aircon except temperature so it was either off or blasting out. Pattaya beach is blighted with plastic, rubbish and speed boats. The water was disgusting as the storms had overwealmed the sewage system and dumped raw sewage in the sea. Not much of an attempt was made to clear the plastic and rubbish. The boats taking tourists to the island are constantly coming and going and the smell of fuel is bad. Also these tourists are dumping their rubbish on the beach without a care. The sand they have imported is very coarse. Go to Jomtien beach where it it is much much cleaner
Thank you for your feedback. We hope that we will welcome you again in the nearly future.
