10 Best Family Hotels in Pattaya Beach
Pattaya is certainly a city that is evolving and is now very definitely a family-friendly resort. OK, there may be some areas of the city that you would rather children didn’t see but overall Pattaya welcomes everyone and that includes families. Our list includes some of the most family orientated hotels that you will find in Pattaya Beach.
The Wave Hotel was opened back in 2013 but gives the impression of dating back to an art deco era and possibly looking more at home in 1950s Florida rather than Pattaya. However, that takes nothing away from the superbly rendered boutique hotel that oozes class and sophistication – something that until recently you would not really associate with Pattaya Beach Road. The hotel is in a great location, close to the beach with the shopping centres at Central Festival and Royal Garden Plaza both being within walking distance.
Of course, the hotel has much more to offer travellers than just its location. The pastel shades of the hotels exterior make it easily recognisable and the fact that it only has 21 rooms just gives it that extra feel of luxury. The rooms are fantastically well furnished with polished hardwood floors, sumptuous beds adorned with bright coloured bedding and large bathrooms, all fitted with some of the best rain showers that are available on the market.
2. Dusit D2 Baraquda
This is another of the boutique hotels that you will find in Pattaya. Situated on Pattaya Second Road, right in the heart of the city, the Hotel Baraquda is part of the Dusit’s MGallery Collection. Rightfully boasting a 5-star rating, the Baraquda is well placed for the beach and shopping centres as well as being within walking distance of Walking Street. The location is perfect for those who want to keep their travelling time down to a minimum.
The hotel itself has a stylish cream and grey exterior with an asymmetric swimming pool. With just 72 rooms, the Baraquda is designed in a “urbane and futuristic way” with all the modern conveniences that you would expect in an upmarket hotel. The beds are extremely comfortable and all the rooms have their own private balcony and quality, high-pressure showers in the bathrooms.
3. Hotel Mera Mare
Located close to the Hard Rock Café, just moments from the beach, the Hotel Mera Mare again includes all the modern conveniences including high speed internet and a computer station. Complimentary newspapers are available and there is also plenty of parking at the hotel making it appealing to business travellers and also families who have hired cars.
4. Holiday Inn Pattaya
One of the larger hotels in Pattaya, the Holiday Inn is located at the northern end of Pattaya Beach Road and opened back in 2009.

The facilities are well maintained and of a high quality and the signature spa is a great place to unwind after a day at the beach or taking in the sights.

Families are made to feel very welcome during their stay and there are lots of activities that children can take part in.

Like many hotels in the Hilton chain, the service, facilities and the property itself are first class. The hotel offers a laundry and dry cleaning service along with conference and meeting rooms should this be something that appeals.
An express check-out service is available as well as a round-trip shuttle service to the airport for a surcharge. Free valet parking is available for those who have their own transport for the duration of their stay.
