I'm not going to write a grand review because it was the least of all the hotels we stayed in, mainly because of the not so friendly personnel there. They were hanging over the counter at the reception like they were having a lunchbreak when we arrived, and service took quite a while. Didn't matter wheter you were in the bar in the lobby or outside.
We stayed there for two days, and also came to the conclusion that if we ever went back we wouldn't be staying there. First day was mostly looking around and going to the beach, and out at night.

Jomtien and the centre of Pattaya closeby were ok. Nice restaurants, plenty of bars and shops, the beach was closeby...so nothing wrong with that. There were a lot of travestites, really funny to see them walking around. And of course old men and 18 year old Thai girls (or older of course), but that's the way of Pattaya as our Thai guide said. Every one has their own reason, so don't judge them....it is hard not to judge the dirty old men though....

Thursday (day 13) we went to the Million Year Stone Park and Crocodile Farm. It was beautiful, the garden was so peaceful. And the farm was a Zoo with a part of it as a Crocodile Farm. It was very nice, very clean. Only sad thing was, well not extremely sad, but you could go on a picture with a tiger, elephant or brown bear. Poor animals were druged from here to Tokio i guess...the bear had to sit up at every picture, the elephants had to lift people up every time....i didn't do it, no matter how much i love tigers this just felt too awkward to do. In the afternoon we went to the beach!! I love the sea, more then pools to be honest.

So I spend two days at the beach. My friend didn't like the beach much and went to the hairdresser instead.... The last day, when we were about to go home, it was a real storm outside. It was raining hard, including thunder and lightning. It got better in the afternoon though...

Anyway we had an ok time in Jomtien/Pattaya, but were glad we could leave again after those few days. It was time to go home.
