We had a wonderful couple of hours at this sanctuary, it's not glamorous or modern just genuine place where the rescued elephants are well looked after. We took an elephant for a walk, fed her, washed her and chatted to the guide who told us all about her and what she likes. You really got to interact with the animals who were more placid than I had expected. This sanctuary relies on donations so paying around £30 (1200 baht) for a couple of hours was no problem, especially as it was something we would never experience in England. The guide happily takes photos for you and although we were told his English was not very good we found him to be very easy to communicate with. If you are staying in Hua Hin it's about 15 mins taxi ride so easy to get to, we would definitely go again.
