I am looking for a good hotel in Pattaya and Patong with the following specifications. Any ideas?
1. Modern hotel, either 4* or 5*.
2. No joiner fee and no problem with bringing in ladyboys.
3. Having a large pool 50m long, since I like to swim.
4. Close to action.
5. Soft bed.
Some examples and their drawbacks:
BYD Lofts: Very small pool, more a wash basin. Far away from the action.
Patong Resort: Pool is OK (even two pools), but hotel is old and starts to look run down.
Yorksher Inn: Small rooms, which look like the interior of a U-boot.
Nap: 1500 baht joiner fee.
La Flora: 2000 baht joiner fee.
The Lantern: 1000 baht joiner fee and rooms look like the interior of a U-boot.
Baipho: No pool. You cannot swim in the jacuzzi on the roof.
Patong Towers: Extremely small pool. It's a joke.
Patong Beach Hotel: Ladyboys not allowed, even when they do an evening show there on Thursdays.
KEE Resort: No ladyboys allowed.
Areca Lodge: Pool is OK, but the beds are hard and it starts to look run down, even the Evergreen wing.
Avani: 1000 baht joiner fee.
LK Metro: The whole hotel looks awful and kitsch.
Seven Zea Chick hotel: far away from the action.
Siam@Siam: Away from the action.
