“Excellent room but terrible pool/beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2007

Just came back from a 2 nights stay in Huahin at the Rock and totally regretting it.. should have stayed 2 nights more! However, was only dropping by Huahin before going to Koh Samui, but will definitely come back for more at the end of the year.

The staff could not speak much English but are nevertheless friendly and helpful with our questions about getting round Huahin and other ad hoc requests. Hotel room is fantastic, especially the very comfortable bed, the bathroom which occupies half the room and totally awesome views of the Gulf of Thailand when you wake up in the morning.

Breakfast is only ok and when occupancy runs low, breakfast is prepared upon requests. (This is common during low peak season). The pool is a tad bit below expectations since there are bugs and insects on the water as you swim. We dare not venture into the beach as it looks murky and seems rough to go into.

Overall, I strongly recommend the resort!

Overall correct hotel.

plus:
location on a not so crowdy part of the beach,
Most personnel are friendly,
rooms are superb.

minus:
small plot of land. feels narrow.
No breakfast at the beach side.
Poor Management attitude towards late check out: 30% of the room charge after 13.00. non negotiable

ATTENTION:

Every morning from 3-4 AM, there a 2 cocks just underneath the windows shouting every 12 sec.

We stayed there in Dec. 06 because the Hyatt (where we usually stay) was booked. The price was right, but when we got there, realized it was so worth the $150.00 a night. The room and decor was so relaxing, modern with a nice asian feel to it. Each of the rooms has a patio/ lanai and it's built over water, very cool! The beach was too rough to go into, especially from the hotel location (it's rocky, which I'm thinking is the reason why it's called "The Rock"), but the pools was nice. Not really deep, but it is an infinity pool and with the ocean as your back drop and nice music coming from the pool lounge area, it didn't get any nicer than that! The service was good. Would stay again!

  • Liked — The room decor and size
  • Disliked — Bad beach access, not sandy beach.

Fantastic place to stay in!

we greatly enjoyed our time in Hua Hin, thanks to the wonderful staff of The Rock. Special kudos to Peace, who answered our questions patiently both on the phone and in person! The staff made The Rock feel like home for us.

The rooms were huge and wonderfully outfitted with all the amenities yoy will need. it was also really nicely decorated! We didnt want to leave!

Location wise, Kao Takiab was a nice and quiet place to stay at. There are shops around, can pop out to 7-11 around 100m down to get what you need. The Rock is far enough from the city centre to escape the crowds, but near enough to maintain accessibility. Nice for relaxation, and the eternity pool at The Rock is just a dream.

Only complain is that water pressure was too low, we gave up on filling the huge stone bathtub that looked so inviting. :(

Will encourage anyone considering The Rock to stay with them. I will be back!

Stayed 6 nights in May 06 at the Rock together with my wife and 2 year old son. This small resort is a fantastic place; stylish and new, good restaurant, nice pool area and bar, excellent quiet location next to the beach, but a 5 minutes drive from the city centre. But what really makes this resort outstanding is the staff; friendly and helpful, always smiling, excellent personal service, you really feel spoiled and at the centre of everybody's attention.

I spent 3 nights in The Rock with my brother. From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome. The room was super with two large lovely beds, and all very tastefully decorated. The peace and quiet at the seaside, and the forever smiling staff really pampered us. Besides that the food was excellent. But most of all, the staff were far above average top of the bill, and they together know what it means to spoil you!!Far better experience than any other large hotel!
