First time to Pattaya, staying only for a night as its a business trip. Hotel's located along Sai Song road which is few hundred metres away from the beach.
Short distance walk to the mall, road side stalls, McD's and everything needed.
Hotel looks new and interior is same as most of the Ibis I've visited. Arrived at 11.30am and got a upgrade to the family room as they're fully booked on that day.
Room was decent sized with a king size and a kids' double decker. Each of the double decker bed had a huge soft toy on it. There were 2 TVs. I for watching the local channels (which was buzzy and blur, couldn't really watch much TV program) and the other had a PS3 connected to it.
Mini bar was empty, only had the 2 complimentary water bottles in it. No fuss as I usually buy from the convinience stall.
Balcony was facing the pool, and at 6th floor I could see the beach and the boats and para-gliders.
Was indeed a relaxing feeling looking out to the horizon. Cleanliness is very good, but when I switch off the aircond and open the balcony door in the morning, the floor started to get wet due to the change in temperature and the it was sticky (very common in most seaside hotels due to the salt water)
Overall I guess I was in Pattaya for the wrong reason: work. But if I was there for holiday Ibis would have been one of the most affordable branded hotels I'd go for as my base to explore Pattaya as I'm not the kind who would want to stay in the middle of all the action but rather some peace and quietness would suit me well.
