Since I have been at this hotel before, I expected the same experience or better from the last. I did not but that is not to say the stay was awful. The hotel sits across the street from the beach and it's location on beach puts you right in the middle of the action.

Wonderful hotel on the beach in close proximity to everything. Just hop the Baht bus at the front to go to all the shopping, eating places and the famous walking street. The staff are the best, the breakfasts are really great with lots of choices. Comfortable, lovely rooms.
Reception seemed cold, but I realized it was just this hotels brand which is rather high class for Pataya. Breakfast is top notch. Water valves are sensitive, but just open the hot first and then fine adjust with the cold. One complaint is I got a jet tub instead of jacuzzi I booked and paid for.
My husband and I stayed at Baraquda with our very active 22 month old son. The level of service provided by the staff is indescribable. We've stayed at many hotels around the world but hands down found the staff at this hotel to be the absolute best....ever. They treated our son like loyalty! Front desk staff went out of their way every time they saw him to greet and play with him. During breakfast they generally entertained him so we could eat peacefully. Specially one of the chefs! She was amazing! For breakfast, unlike other hotels that line up hot food, they make theirs made to order and there are no limits. You can alter your meals and request them as you like. There are also the usual breads, pastries, cereals, fruits etc to eat endlessly. We were often greeted by the managers who took time to socialise with us and ensure we are enjoying our stay. That has never happened to us anywhere else! The rooms are quite nice and modern. The shower is lovely and large but has no door (and glass wall facing room). Admittedly the doorless shower was a bit of a challenge with our curious toddler but we managed. The cleaners were also friendly and attentive. The pool is wonderful with plenty of bedding to relax on. You'll need to take footwear as the pool deck tends to get extremely hot in the soaring sun. When we were leaving, front desk staff literally came outside and stood by our taxi waving as we parted. It was like saying goodbye to family. Just beautiful!!

Arrived prior to check in time but room was available immediately, despite some confusion about which building included in Expedia booking. Despite visiting during Thai New Year celebrations, hotel facilities were not overloaded and staff were very attentive and helpful. Easy access from room to pool area was appreciated. Proximity of local transport and a variety of food outlets and restaurants was a plus. The beach is nearby, although this isn't the best in Thailand by any means.
