Palm trees on the beach provide shade, the sand is clean, there is no rubbish and it is comfortable to enter the water. There are no canopies or umbrellas but only sun loungers. You have to occupy them early in the morning if you are here during the high season.
A distinctive feature of the beach area of the Ambassador City Jomtien Ocean Wing 4 * hotel is the numerous masseuses in special tents.

Things to know
You can be fined if:
- you rented a beach towel and did not return it until 00 in the evening;
- you threw plastic bottles out of the room.
Upon arrival at the hotel you pay a deposit of $100. When you leave, it is completely returned if you have not had fines.
At the nightly Thai food market outside the hotel you can enjoy the sea delicacies: crab, shrimp, lobster, stingray, many types of fish, as well as shark meat. Low prices for chicken kebab – 40 baht only. The food is cooked at your presence. Here you can also buy exotic fruit and taste cocktails with ice.
To get to the market, you need to leave the hotel complex and cross the busy Sukhumvit highway. This highway can take you to Bangkok in147 km. Although there is a pedestrian crossing, nobody slows down at it. At night, there is a policeman who regulates the traffic, but he is gone during the daytime.
You need to be extremely careful and cautious crossing the road! A lot of fatal collisions with tourists happened here!
To cross the road I would recommended that you use the overpass for pedestrians located 300 meters to the left from the main entrance to the hotel.
At the overpass entrance there are currency exchange offices with a good rate open from 9.00 to 22.00, a pharmacy, a travel agency, massage parlors, Big C, 7/11 store. Usually the most favorable rate is at the yellow exchange offices.
Lifehack. In Thailand small dollar bills are not valued so exchanging them you can lose some significant amounts. Denominations of 50 and 100 dollars are accepted at the highest rate.

Natalia from Kirov, family vacation
We are coming here for the fourth time. I like everything – the clean beach, good breakfasts, a lot of pools. We often go on excursions. We buy tours ourselves in special bureaus. It turns out cheaper. The hotel is a bit boring in the evenings. Families and elderly people usually rest here. It is almost always quiet here and the neighbors we came across were always quiet. We love local cuisine very much – it is cheap and very tasty! It is quite expensive for four of us to dine at the restaurant. So we prefer to eat outside the complex. I like everything very much and I will definitely come back again.
Vyacheslav from Samara
The furniture in the rooms is not very new, the breakfasts are a bit monotonous. But it’s okay, as they have the good beach and massage parlors everywhere, you can order a massage for 200 baht and relax. I did not like that Wi-Fi is not included and of poor quality. It is pleasant to walk through the large area. We didn’t intend much to go to the center, we just wanted to relax, sunbathe and enjoy the nature. We had a sea view in our room. Having a second shower is very convenient. We will surely come back again and try to do it during the low season not to have that many people around.
Christina from Kazan, family vacation
I liked everything very much. We came here for the first time and settled in a good large room. It was cleaned often and shower accessories were filled up. They have good, bright dining room and delicious food! My daughter really liked it! We all spent our free time either on the beach or by the pool, because the sea was sometimes muddy. It bothered us to bring the towels back in the evening. Basically, I think it is a good hotel and good service for its price. We went to a couple of excursions, one bought from a guide and the second one we went independently. We also made a trip to the center. We found a lot of interesting things there.
