Hua Hin versus Koh Samui

Just about to book our Thailand holiday for 2007 and have a few questions if anyone can help..

1) We are thinking of doing 7 days in Koh Samui and & 7 days in Hua Hin, however some one has mentioned that the beaches aren't all that in Hua Hin and that we're be disappointed with it compared to Koh Samui. Can anyone set us straight!

2) Can we dive off Hua Hin?

They are so very different, Samui is busy tourist orientated tropical island style, Hua Hin is a coastal town with beaches, golf, sailing, national parks, jungle adventures, elephant villages and that sort of thing, has lots of restaurants, bars, night markets and shopping, so Samui is great for beach lazing and nightlife, Hua hin is very different, it's cheap, close to Bangkok, but very different.

No diving from Hua hin, nearest is Chumphon 3 hrs drive south or snorkeling at Bang Saphan and Koh Talu 2 hours south.
