Dolphin Bay Resort is not in Hua Hin?

Hi, was told Dolphin Bay Resort is very far from Hua Hin, is it true? Thinking of staying there withmy family this June but worried it might not be near activities or town area.

Would appreciate advice please.

Dolphin Bay is about a 30 minute drive from Hua Hin, you might well find the hotel has it's own shuttle bus as an option.

There isn't a lot to do but you are also in a National Park and it's quite a beautiful area to be in. There are a few bars and eateries to go to and the town of Pranburi is 10-15 minutes drive away although it's not a tourist town but Hua hin isn't that far away for a much greater all round experience.

As Cli has said it is nice but it is very quiet area, as you have noted it is 'not' in Hua Hin.

Many places in Pranburi and Cha Am are 'promoted' as being in Hua Hin and also many travel business and hotel booking sites list such places as Hua Hin when they simply are 'not'.

So if you want something very quiet and closer to Sam Roi Yot National Park that is fine, but if you were looking for something in or closer to Hua Hin for all that Hua Hin offers, then you would want to stay in / around Hua Hin itself.
