Nice looking hotelStayed at Cape Dara over the weekend. The hotel is in between Pattaya and Wong Amat beach. Think it opened after Covid, so is relatively new. I quite like it, great staff, pool, and views from the room are great. It's a bit out of the way, but the hotel offers a regular shuttle service to Dolphin round about, where you can walk to beach road from there, or grab a songtheaw.
The only grumble from the gf was it's full of Chinese tourists, but so are most half decent joins in Thailand tbf. Next time I come I'll probably try Hilton or something else more central.
They've got two pools, both really nice. Breakfast was great, usual mix of western and eastern, plus the patong ko, which I've unfortunately now come to enjoy too often.
Security is also good. Last night I wanted to go down to the beach to try a joint i picked up but the beach was closed. Ended up smoking out front of the hotel and the security guard told me he could get it for cheaper. 555 Left him half of it as I couldn't finish it.

I hate Pattaya but we've stopped and stayed at Dusit Thani in Pattaya and we love it
On the opposite end of Beach Rd from Walking Street
When looking for a hotel in Thailand I always read TA and Google reviews to make sure it's not a hotel that has many Chinese or Muslims
May sound racist but I can't stand the way Chinese behave in Thailand and we've had some issues with Muslims when staying at Amari on Soi 5 and one time at a hotel on Soi 4
Just my preference
