do u wanna be right on the beach or are you ok walking a few metres or catching a tuc tuc to the beach?
we stayed in Patong Garden Bay Hotel, it is literally on the beach , u breakie on the beach as well and when u go out of the front entrance u are right inthe middle of the shops and markets so we never had to go far. But no idea what they have for kids as went there when I was not yet a mommy. Service is ok, not so wow but then again it is not a five star. I didnt care though as all i wanted was to be right on the beach.
By the way be careful when u search for hotels on the beach, most of them will give u the impression it is on the beach but then it is actually across the street from the beach, which means you have to walk a bit which is not really far but if it's not what u wanted u might be dissapointed. Always check out the map,u can see that Patong has only a few beach hotels, rest is all opposite beach road.
I am so glad about this thread as we wanna go again and like to hear all the imput from others.
