Hotel itself as expected, clean & comfortable, all staff pleasant. Swimming pools nice. It was really quiet during our stay, I don't think I would like it at high season, I can imagine the dreaded towel run for sun loungers.
Big downside, there is no beach in front of this hotel, even though the hotel website shows a beach that was a few years ago. There is a crumbling sea defense wall & unsuitable bathing in the sea as there is are an abundance of stinging jellyfish.
We started off in room 1426 but upgraded to villa for a big bath tub as well as a shower. Hotel insisted that because we booked through an agent, we had to pay full price for the villa with no reduction from our already paid for room (agent now liasing with hotel re this matter)
As other contributors mention there is no free wi-fi, very mean to say the least.
You can pre pay for breakfast at 300 baht per person, but there is a lovely village just outside the hotel that offer breakfasts for 90 baht. If you crave proper English breakfast with real bacon try J & K's, they do homemade pies too !
The village has many restaurants and a few bars, some with free wi fi The locals are simply charming, serving fresh food and far less expensive than the hotel.
Gena's bar is popular, free wi fi, decent choice of drinks. They don't serve food, but are happy for you to take your own in there.
Quite a few of the local places offer trips & taxis. Lovely spacious air conditioned mini bus to Bangkok airport 2600 baht. Taxi to Cha Aam 250 baht & to Hua Hin 300 baht. Hua Hin has more happening than Cha Aam.
Bonus side..........couple of lovely monitor lizards, a few birds, few tree snakes & plenty of friendly moggies. (All critters harmless)
