  1. Poor Amenities / Rude Manager

    “I stayed here a few times, the last being in November 2018. Often the fixtures would break, air-con would leak fluid, or cockroaches/bugs crawling on the walls. Manager is coarse and unaccommodating. The rooms did not look like their online pictures.“

  2. First time in Pattaya

    “A expat friend recommended the venue in the heart of the Jomtien beach gay complex, I booked a big room for 1100 b/night in off season. The room was clean and reasonably decorated with refrig and safe, decent tv and good bed. Power shower was a little temperamental but... when are they not? Chris (owner) was great giving me advice. No problems with guests. The nightly caberette was really great for a little place, I was there 3 nights out 6 and saw all new material. Not a luxury 5 star hotel, but for a decent clean gay owned place with friendly staff near the beach, this was a good pick.“
