I have personaly never heard a bad review about the Sofitel, if you see consistant bad reviews of a place then maybe there is something to it but the Sofitel is an award winning luxury hotel that persoanly I have heard nothing but praise for, and have enjoyed myself going back many years. I would always look between the lines on some reviews.

Anyway, back to your question, I would highly recommend the Hyatt Regency for kids and if traveling with a child/children I would suggest the Hyatt, they have a 'Camp Hyatt' Kids club for kids up to 12, there are good pool areas with a great water slide , lots of space, plus excellent pool areas, lots of grounds and I venture to say is more orientated wo can I say 'well off families'. It is also located close to places to Elephant ride, take a boat trip, fishing, cycling area etc. I doubt you can go wrong with the Hyatt and the price for a twin with brreakfast should be around the USD 110 ( UK pounds I guess about 60 a night ) including tax/service and an excellent breakfast(one of the best). There are of course lots of other good places but I have stayed there a few times and certainly with a child that wants to be occupied whilst you relax around the pool I honestly don't think you can beat it.

Thanks Monica.

We are going over new Year so i think it will be more expensive than ��60.00 but it does not matter.

Is the hyatt near to shops and bars?

Hyatt is about 5-6 minutes by tuk tuk from town center of Hua Hin, I would suggest being that distance as opposed to bang in the center which is quite busy. The Marriott is cheaper than the Hyatt, that is a 10 minute stroll or 3 minutes by tuk tuk from the center. On the corner near the Hyatt is a great little local bar with a live band, nice atmosphere. In center of Hua hin several streets with lots of bars. Star Planet is a disco pub with live music/dancers, good fun and cheap but packed solid at weekends.

Hi

Last year we stayed at the Evason in Hua Hin. It is absolutely beautiful. Have a look at their web site www.six-senses.com. It's ideal for children, complete with kids club which includes sleep overs. The infinity pool is lovely, very big. The restaurants are great, with a good choice. Just outside the hotel, on the beach, there are a few restaurants and a bar. There is a shuttle bus into town. We had a lovely holiday- definately worth looking at.

The Evason is actually near Pranburi, it's not in Hua Hin, it is about 30 minutes from Hua Hin town. If you want somewhere quiet and very remote then fine, but from what you have said I think it would be far too remote for what you want.

If you have a look at their web site (www.six-senses.com), the Evason is advertised as being in Hua Hin. The hotel provide a shuttle to the town centre which runs throughout the day and into the evening (until 11.30pm), taxis' are also widely available and cheap. I certainly wouldn't describe it as remote- around 20 minutes to the town centre, depending on traffic.

Hi

My vote goes to Hilton in Hua Hin...it is probably the best hotel that I have ever stayed at :-) My wife and I stayed there in the end of 2002 when we went to Thailand on vacation. I have posted a trip report with some pictures from the trip on my homepage http://gardkarlsen.com. Maybe you can find some useful information there :-) Please get in touch if you have any questions or comments.

Regards

Gard

I wouldsay Annatara, check out their website. I have been there once or twice a year for 7 years now. Child friendly, best bar, best location (near the market/town). Check out their website in Googles........
