    spent 2 nights there - right across the road from the beach

    drove up to the seafood markets in the morning and bought lots went and parked back at the villa - took the seafood to the beach with a couple of bottles of wine - some lindermans from 7/11 - lazed in the deckchairs all day and had the seafood cooked along with multiple other foods bought
    very easy day on the beach - it was tues to thurs so not so many people also

    Why is this?

    Centara Grand Mirage has two double beds and its own water park, lazy river and private beach.... those kids would have loved it....just tell em you only have 2 kids, although most hotels let 1 kid stay for free in existing bedding.


    Mercure Pattaya Ocean has a diving platform and a few slides but the rooms are tiny but they do have adjoining rooms.




    Royal Cliff, like Centara has 2 double beds, 7 tennis courts and a few nice pools.

    I took her indoors and the kids to pattaya and stayed in jomtien. Plenty of spacious self contained condos for daily rent. Much better option than the darkside.

    Me too.

    The kid saw this place and wanted to go there.



    Forget how much is was. Less than 2k p/n anyway. No tennis courts, but hid toy dinosaurs in the jungle parts and the kid had to find them while I sat around getting drunk. Easy enough to get by there too once you learn to speak Russian.

    BANGKOK

    ^^^

    If you don't mind the lower Suk (early numbered Sukhumvit), the Grand President on Soi 11 (Farang Soi) is centrally located, easy walk to a BTS station, has a Family Suite, Gym, Pool and a decent breakfast.

    I stayed in a Family Suite once (got upgraded by sweet talking the receptionist) as my Sister was with me.



    Child and extra bed policy
    Infant 0-1 year(s) Stay for free if using existing bedding.
    Note, if you need a cot there may be an extra charge.

    Children 2-11 year(s) Stay for free if using existing bedding.


    One important tip:- The Grand President consists of 3 towers. Two decent buildings and connected and they later bought a tower block across the road which has never been renovated and crappy. It is Tower # 3. Insist on Towers I n II when booking.

    Hope that helps ...


    EDIT:- If you don't mind being a little father from the action, but still convenient and on a budget, friends have stayed at The Bedrooms near OnNut BTS.
    Hotel Site:- Bangkok Hotel - The official website of The Bedrooms Boutique Hotel - Sukhumvit Bangkok Thailand

    As the BTS extends, lots more 'budget' place with good connectivity with Bangkok open up.

    Yes, it really is one of life's true mysteries.

    Anyway. I'm off to Nonkers via Konkers coz I've heard it's full of bonkers. Or maybe Hatters via Nakkers coz it's chock full of crackers?

    Laters Patters.

    Thais shorten place names as well, the border town of is Aranyaprathet is called Aran.

    It was the Diana Inn and was bought by the guys family who own the Bose Suites in Bangkok. They spent a bit on it initially but the rumour is that they bought it hoping to resell at a large profit without spending - they certainly achieved the "without spending" bit but no punter willing to help with the "large profit" part I guess

    stayed there once, connecting ti internet was nightmare,went down for a breakfast asked for a earl grey tea instead of house tea and they charged 110 baht for the tea bag.

    used to stay at Boss suites in Bkk same experience as Norton, there is a small hotel just down soi from Parinda called the Alt hotel nice big rooms and good Breakfast and the rates are very good.
    though not stayed there a while now.

    Now that Prags written the review Danny Boy will have it cut n pasted and passed off as his own work by tomorrow. Remember Danny/Snakeeyes never actually writes anything himself.

    The Atlantis resort in Jomtien is a good place to stay and self caatering,across the road from resort is a cracking outdoor Thai restaurant,great food and great prices.

    kids loved the resort hard to get them to leave to gout outside.

    Why is it that all Thailand long termers seem to be abbreviating "go" to "gout" these days? It isn't even shorter. One's actually a medical condition. I find that weird. Sign of the times I guess.

    All? I think you're exaggerating a little. Only the Chico aka Horatio Hornblower aka Yasojack seems to abbreviate as you say.

    Jaysus, I would have thought a cook would have understood F&B....


    $3 for a premium cuppa tea sounds reasonable to me.
