Just arrived home from my first holiday in Thailand, the second hotel was the Hilton, Hua Hin. Would highly recommend the hotel, service and
staff were excellent, breakfast was one of the best I have eaten with enough choice for every taste imaginable - I can particularly recommend the omelettes, made to order while you wait.
The pool area is large and suitably impressive with attentive waiter service on hand, pool bar and two convenient lunch venues (should you need lunch after that breakfast). Comfortable loungers, plenty of shade and no shortage of sunbeds or towels during our stay and the hotel was pretty full. We tried all three of the hotels restaurants and whilst they are considerably more expensive than some of the places in the town, the quality of the food was also superior. We also
ate at the Sofitel once and found that to be equally good. Restaurants
around the town that we tried and liked were the Chao Lay (great seafood) and one or two of the street restaurants at the night market.
Most of the places to eat along the stretch opposite the hotel are cheap and OK but nothing special.
Can recommend the hotel spa, had a massage, facial and hair do - three
and a half hours for around 75 quid. Very professional job and a lovely calming experience.
The popular night market and an evening at the thai boxing stadium are are not to be missed and trek along to take a look at the extraordinary railway station - a good photo opportunity. Many good cheap bars around to spend an hour or two watching the world go by and spotting the many elderly western gents 'entertaining' young thai women (quite sad but very amusing!)
Don't come here if you want amazing beaches. The beach directly out of the hotel is a narrow strip of reasonably clean sand completely spoiled by makeshift bars, cafes, hair braiding, massage, manicure etc, etc outfits, all renting deckchairs and hassling you as soon as you set foot on the sand. There are also horse rides available which all makes for a very crowded beach. The sea is also quite rough and hardly crystal clear. There is also no requirement to keep dogs off the sand and on both occasions when we ventured along the beach we witnessed dogs defeacating. The beach does get slightly less crowded and wider towards the Sofitel (just South of the Hilton) but still didn't do it for me.
