Having been to Cosy Beach last year I was surprised with some of the comments I read. But I fear things have slipped quite badly in some respects. Firstly the room we had (over in the Ocean Wing) was dreadful..It was a lovely,well decorated large room BUT with a HUGE crack down the entire wall from top to bottom! The plaster had bulged that much that it was about to pop off the wall at any time!And when you consider it was right over the bed side lamp,it looked very iffy.... When we went back to reception to say we weren't happy(or felt safe) in that room,we were shown another one...Dark, dingy, overlooking an alley with a eyeline view of the next buildings roof! We said the original room was a better position but was curtly told by the Manager that the hotel was full and that was that! He said he had ''already upgraded us''? We told him that the room should not be given to anyone and called out Kuoni rep...First time we have ever been disappointed with Kuoni..he came,shrugged and laughed when I told him that the Bell boy had said the crack was from an earthquake(very re-assuring)..When we asked could we move hotel..Nope...Kuoni came back to us 3 days later and said we could move for £424! They should have paid me that to stay in there! Anyway, we could't waste any more of our holiday and settled into the routine of ''getting the towel''on the sunbed..What a shocker..we went down the 2nd morning to find the pool on the original Cosy Beach side(which we prefer as the sun is better on this side) was like a garbage site! A cat ran past us with it's mouth full of food it had scavanged from one of the many plastic food containers left lying around..This I might add we also told the rep about whilst we were trying to sort the other problem out. By lunch time we could see where the problem was coming from...Now I must stress we do not expect everything to be ''British'' when we go away..far from it ...but it was basically the way the ''Russian'' customers ate and drank..I commented on this last review and things had got worse not better! We went down in the evening to see that the lovely dimly lit pool area was no more than a take away cafeteria. Sunbeds were used as seats..and the pool tables filled with food and drink brought in from the local supermarket and food stalls...And sadly all the empty beer bottles and plastic containers were left for the poor Thai staff to clean away in the morning.Of course we were down there pretty early to get a sunbed so saw the carnage they had to clear away...It was the same all day around the pool and in the evening at the bar in the Ocean Wing side where Mia and Sam would would sing some lovely music..They even had the cheek to come to the bar and ask for their wine/lager bottles to be opened!...That was the negative..very sad, as this could be a little gem..it's so close to the Cliff beach..within easy reach of Pattaya Beach and Jomtiem.....we could walk to the major tourist sites..The Naval Point and Big Buddha...There are some gorgeous restaurants to eat in and yet it's spoilt because the management don't seem to want to keep the rooms in a good state of repair or sort out these tourists who basically don't want to pay for anything in the hotel and bring it all in and leave it for other people to clear away...The most annoying thing was to try and tell these people to stop spitting their chewing gum on the floor around the pool. There's nothing like stepping in hot sticky gum and having it stuck to the bottom of your nice pool shoes....Sounds disgusting I know but IS disgusting to have happen! And it's so annoying because the food around the hotel is good and very reasonable..and if you sign it to your room and pay at the end of your stay, the hotel gave us 20% off...which in our case amounted to £80! We ate some days at the BBQ..which cooked your bef/chicken/prawn and mixed seafood kebabs as you ordered. I amd going to add some pictuers(good and bad ) for you to make up your own minds..but I fear we would not want to put ourselves through listening to foul mouthed,drunken Russian, tourists again....and I did check with several people that we were correct in our Nationality and we were...sorry ..
