This hotel falls far below its website advertised standard and prices would lead you to expect.
The hotel consists of a small, basic bar/restaurant immediately adjacent to the road opposite the beach. Immediately behind this area is a small rectangular pool. Down each side of the pool are 8 'bungalows' or as my wife described them, concrete sheds. Each bungalow is split by a very thin partition wall and connecting door into 2 rooms.
I looked at 4 of these identical rooms before telling the owner I was not satisfied and checking out after 1 night, getting my money back for the remaining nights I had paid for.
Each room is painted bare walls, containing 1 small double bed, 1 bedside table (not enough room for 1 each side of the bed), 1 small wardrobe, 1 air conditioner, 1 TV on a small table, no safe. The en suite bathroom is a tiny tiled room with no divider between shower/toliet/sink. Use the shower and everything is soaked. There is a small verandah out front facing in to the pool.
As stated all rooms are identical. There are no deluxe or superior rooms as advertised.
The whole set up is basic and pokey. In the room I had to spend one night in the air con failed to work properly and I could hear everything our neighbour did, including his ablutions.
I had travelled in Thailand for 2 weeks before getting here. A comparable hotel would be 1000Bht tops for a double room with breakfast for 2 people.

We traveled with two young children, and were looking for a place to stay that had a nice pool and was near the beach. Friends suggested extremely expensive places, but we weren't really looking for that kind of experience.
We tried to book Dolphin Bay Resort, but it was full.
Lealawadee seemed like a good alternative.
Generally, we were happy, although it pales compared to Dolphin Bay, which is 5 mins away.
The rooms were comfortable and clean. Everything worked.
The pool was fine.
The food wasn't very good and was pricey. There are other places to eat along the beach. We loved a local restaurant about 10 mins away. The food was great and it was a fraction of the cost.
The breakfast was included (for adults only, kids left out). It was not very good.
As is the tradition in Thailand, we had to pay for the "special New Year's Dinner and Show". This was ridiculously over priced (more than US$100 each!) and was truly terrible. The food was substandard, the entertainment was pathetic. We felt that it was simply a "cash grab" and ended up down the beach, where we had a much better time.
Overall, I would strongly suggest you try Dolphin Bay if you're looking for a family vacation. If you can't get in, Lealawadee is an ok alternative.

We stayed in Hua Hin for a couple of nights but were not overly charmed by it so we decided to move further down the coast to Pranburi.

Lealawadee is a pretty simple place all round. Its directly across from the beach and has a nice swimming pool and garden. We stayed in the Garden View rooms (i.e. the cheaper option) and it had a fairly large, clean bedroom with air con as well as a somewhat strangely configured bathroom.

There was a TV in the room although it only showed Thai TV and a good sized fridge. There was daily housekeeping which was great for the price we paid.

The main restaurant/reception area is a large indoor-outdoor space, which is very nice to sit in during the heat of the day. We ate most of our meals there too out of sheer laziness. The food was quite nice and reasonably priced in general. We also appreciated the complimentary breakfast (and good coffee!) each morning. There is free wireless internet which none of the staff really know how to work. I'm not sure how long it had been down before we arrived and put things to rights!

So to sum up, its a friendly, easygoing place with lovely staff. Its clean and well kept in general. We paid about 30 dollars a night and we felt that it was good value for that price. Recommended to the budget traveller (or families) who is looking for a bit of peace and quiet.
