As good as ever

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 July 2023
Have stayed at the Sandy Spring ever since it opened maybe 20 years ago. Stayed in the refurbished rooms and all was good...nice new fittings, good Internet. Pool looked brand new! Small car park, which was very handy and the hotel is located right next to the Sportsman bar and restaurant, which has been serving great food for many years. Recommended...would stay there again.
Date of stay: June 2023
Room Tip: Get one of the refurbished rooms on the 4th or 5th floor overlooking the pool

Easy check in with very nice staff. Was seen to the room but when entering, it was very obvious that it was a smoking room as the stench was very strong. I was told that all rooms were smoking rooms. Nice spacious room with a lovely sea view. When I went to have a shower, it was one that had a hose in the bath which I didn't mind. However, the hose was only about 4 foot long and so it was only good for the lower body and I had to crouch down to wash my hair. I did ask to change rooms but was told I would have to upgrade and bearing in mind I was booked in for 3 weeks, I declined.

Room tip: Book a room with a stand alone shower, not one in a bath

Sandy Spring is centrally located in Pattaya. It's near the beach. A huge number of restaurants (of different styles) are within walking distance and a proper supermarket is within a 3-minute walk.

We had a suite room. In addition to the bedroom it had a good sized living room and a large balcony. There was also a large fridge, which was handy for keeping our drinks cold. The room was a bit dated, but the only thing that disturbed about it was that there was only one room key (a traditional key, not a key card). Even though the room was pretty large, it was quite plain and simple. Two small bottles of water were provided daily.

There was a pool where beach chairs and towels were provided.

The hotel was pretty quiet and they ran a limited service. The hotel bar didn't serve food and room service wasn't available.
Luckily there was an English pub right nextdoor which served also breakfast - but it wasn't the most pleasant environment for a breakfast when others were having their morning beers there. Also the pool area wasn't staffed.

When we checked in, the aircon in the bedroom of our room didn't work. The bellman tested it when he took us to the room and immediately moved us to the neighbouring room. Well, after a few days the aircon broke there. When we reported about it, we were moved back to our original room, where the aircon had been repaired meanwhile.

I've stayed here before so thought I'd return. I wanted the sty for about ten nights. On the third day reception told me that they were going to CLOSE the hotel in five days which explained why only one elevator was working and the restaurant was closed. Later that day reception phoned me to say they were closing that next morning and I had to get out!
They did refer me to another hotel that was comparable and had the same price. So I left!

i have stayed in this hotel a number of times over the years the pricing for rooms represents great value, there is no breakfast on offer but plenty of options nearby, they have a pool,on site parking, the rooms have been upgraded and refurbished over the last year or so, you pay a little more for those rooms but they are very good, some with sea views on the 6th floor.you can book sea view rooms. with a really nice outlook and aspect, it's well positioned with restaurants and shopping malls nearby, the baht bus passes either end of the Soi (street) going both in a northerly and southern direction making it perfect to move around town with ease the reception staff are always very friendly i do enjoy staying here.
