Marriott rayong Thailand

Spending a few days with my family there? We are a 2 adult and 2 kids (both under 3 years old) family. On the Marriott website it has many rooms with 2 x Queen beds. but on the website it only allows a max of 2 guests to stay in those room?? Seems strange to me. So i changed to a King Bed room and now it only allows 3 people max per room.is that including children or just adults? How does a family of 4 stay in a hotel like this? do we just fake it and see it they let it slide?

I remember going to Thailand just over ten years ago. It was heaven, not a child in sight. Unfortunately not the case anymore, in both hotels and on flights to Thailand.

Yep - thats the same people who continue to go there now.. life doesnt stand still...
You need to find smth less developed and resort oriented or at the very least avoid worldwide school holidays time - no xmas, no orthodox xmas, no chinese new year, no songkran, no spring break, no... anyways there should be a few days in between

if only there was a way to do away with children....humanity would cease to exist in the next 100 years but at least one would be able to enjoy child-less flights & hotels in the meanwhile....

Contact the hotel. I'm pretty sure they will confirm the 4 of you can stay in a double-double room. I asked a few years ago and they said it was fine, although I stayed elsewhere in the end.

Just stayed again at this property, and again had a GREAT time.

It wasn't crowded, so that was a definite bonus. Pools were all clean as can be, and the staff friendly as ever.
It's true that there are some maintenance needs that the property should start addressing though, so that it doesn't fall into disrepair.

Which room didn't have a TV? The lounge or the bedroom? I noticed that our TV in the bedroom had a sliding "wall" that could completely hide the presence of the TV!

There's a pool that looks like it belongs to the main Marriott pool, but I believe that is actually maintained by the apartment buildings next to the Marriott and has a separate cleaning crew.
We could see pool cleaners working every morning, but the Marriott crew seemed to do a much better job on "their side".

Three people cleaning the big Marriott pool (~8am):

Had a great 1 night stay here travelling to Chanthaburi and stopped off. Redemption booking and upgraded to one bed suite, nice welcome gift. Good breakfast. Forgot to take pictures of the suite, but it was huge with double balcony and comfy bed. Separate sitting area, enormous closet area and bathroom. Ceiling fans in bedroom and sitting area were great rather than switching on AC. Fantastic view to wake up to. Pool to the right is indeed a condo pool, not the Marriott pool.

I always rent a car when in Thailand. (see *)
Not sure it's easily accessible otherwise,....except tour buses of course.


*
Drivers are much more courteous and follow the rules far more than I ever expected before driving in Thailand.

the hotel offers airport pickup for a fee & taking a pre-paid taxi is also an option....but i would highly recommend renting a car....not only will it turn out to be much cheaper than the other options but you will have the ability to move around from the resort as there is pretty much nothing close by....
