Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya: Review

Live like a rock star at the Hard Rock Hotel. Faun over framed costumes and guitars that once graced the stage with iconic music legends. The celebrity treatment continues at dinner with performances by Hard Rock Café’s world-class rock bands.

Upgrade for access to the Rock Royalty Lounge for complimentary evening cocktails and canapes overlooking the Gulf of Siam. Skip the breakfast queues and dine in the lounge like a VIP. 

Cross the road and feel the sand between your toes at Pattaya Beach. Make waves with a jet ski, paddleboard, or boat tour. Walk a little further along the palm-tree-lined coast to discover a plethora of restaurants and stores before partying the night away at Pattaya’s famous Walking Street.

Scorecard

Best Parts:
  • Friendly staff. Personal and engaging service. Inclusion of staff members’ favorite singer on name badges are great conversation starters.
  • Rock Royalty Lounge. Complimentary canapes, beer, wine and cocktails each evening.
  • Rockstar memorabilia. Guitar and costumes owned by rock legends displayed throughout the venue. 
  • Pool activities. Pool volleyball and basketball. Weekly pool parties.  Giant zorb balls for kids. 
  • Free electric guitar hire. Selection of classic Fender guitars available. 
Could Be Better:
  • Noisy breakfast buffet. Very busy and crowded in main restaurant. The Rock Royalty Lounge is a much quieter breakfast option.
  • Hidden poolside balcony. We enjoyed ocean views from our lounge balcony but didn’t realise there was a second balcony overlooking the pool until our last day!
