Lovely location and great hut-type accommodation. Lovely swimming pool which is great for kids. Right on the beach, but swimming not advised because of jellyfish. Good restart and friendly staff. Good for a short break.

Nice place to have a holiday and value for money.

Only air conditioned that make this place fail from 5 to 4 rating score.

Breakfast is delicious and enough for every guests.

In the morning you also have a chance to give foods to monk.

The 3 things that I need to say about the Regent Chalet Hotel at the front of this review are probably the most important to most travellers:
1. Take mosquito repellent with you - Boots Jungle Formula seemed to work for us - avoid sitting out in shorts in the evening, this is when the mozzies will do their worst. If you really want to sit out at night in shorts make sure you have treated your legs and feet with the aforesaid repellent.
2. If your portable PC (tablet, Iphone etc) is 3G enabled you can purchase a micro card from True-H in Hua Hin for 99 Thai Baht (about £2.00) - mine lasted the full 10 days I was there and I never had a bad connection. The True-H shop is on the corner of the street where the night market is held - just across the road and down a bit from Star Bucks.
3. When you order a meal make sure you order your starter and main meal separately otherwise you will get them all together. Even if they push you to order both at the same time with a promise of a delay - don't, as you will still get them all together.

Right, those 3 things said we had a brilliant time at Regent Chalets, the pool is nice, big and warm. Although you are right next to the beach the sea is not ideal for swimming due to Jellyfish - that said we did not miss it at all. There are plenty of Sun Loungers, although demand increases at weekends when the Thais visit the resort for the Friday and Saturday. Fresh towels are available daily on the production of your towel card. The chalets are of a reasonable size with a main room and a bathroom, although a bit limited on storage space they are certainly liveable for a week or so. Our view was that the chalets are looking a little tired and are probably due for a renovation. Each chalet has a veranda making it a very pleasant experience to sit outside (note mozzie point above). Also in each chalet is a kettle and you are also given 2 complimentary bottles of water each day. I go back to point 2 that I made above, if you do not have a 3G facility the hotel can provide internet - at a cost! It is better to go into the village and use the free facilities in the numerous bars and cafes. Whilst we are on the point of the village there are some really good restaurants to eat in - all of them are reasonably priced - the ones we recommend are 'Johns', 'The Family Restaurant' and 'Lucky Restaurant' - for the 2 of us with a starter and a main with drinks cost about £20.00. It is also well worth going into Hua Hin on the shuttle bus and having a meal there, the main eating place is in the market, when you walk up through the market you will cross a road, on the other side of that road is where all the restaurants are - it is a fish lover's paradise! Again, all reasonably priced.

Breakfast in the Hotel is buffet style with a good variety of foodstuffs from continental through Thai to English. The view from the terrace at breakfast is beautiful.

All in all it was a tremendous break albeit too short! As others have commented it is a quiet hotel but we liked it like that, we met some wonderful people and were treated so well by the hotel staff. Unfortunately there was one British couple (from SAGA we think) who were extremely rude to the staff - there is no place for that sort of behaviour.

We would be happy to provide any further information if it's required. Happy holidays!

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near stagnant water - this will minimise mosquito problems

The staff were great but we did have a few problems with the room itself (#122):

1) The shower would not stay at one temperature, but would alternate between searing hot and freezing cold. And even though there was no bath in the room, the hotel had mistakenly provided bubble bath liquid instead of conditioner.

2) The large air conditioner was located on the floor next to the bed, and was so loud it made sleep difficult, even with the fan on low.

3) No wireless or Internet access in the room, which is pretty hard to understand in 2012. Internet was only available in the lobby for 50 baht/15 minutes.

Apart from that, the hotel was quiet and pleasant, with a great pool and immediate access to the beach.

Room Tip: The problems we experienced may be specific to our room (#122), so I would avoid that room until som...

Nice quiet resort on the beach. Chalets are clean and comfortable, nice pool, plenty of sunbeds. Not the best beach area for swimming, however, good for strolling and all.

Breakfast is ok if you come early in the morning. Less than 1 hour before the end, they do not bother to bring out more food if something is finished. Come after 9.30 and be happy with leftovers :). We were highly disappointed with dinner at their 'European food' restaurant (beachfront terrace place). Worst food we had in 4+ years in Thailand. Avoid.

Our stay was on a all inclusive basis, and as other reviewers have stated this is a quiet, peaceful resort,, which the more senior travellers tend to go to, which suited us.
The hotel grounds are lovely and well kept. Chalets are basic, but has every thing you need and are spotless. There are two restaurants on site, but one of them was only open twice a week when we were staying, the main restaurant food could be luke- warm sometimes, as it had to be carried from the kitchens in the other restaurant. Alcoholic drinks on the all inclusive basis, left a lot to be desired, especially the cocktails, most of the time they were undrinkable. There is not much to see outside the resort in walking distance, just a few shops & restaurants.There are many places to go on trips, even though some are very long days, Bridge over the River Kwai, a very emotional trip, The Floating Market, exhilarating boat ride, Hua Hin night market.The pool is quite large and inviting, but some of the sun loungers need replacing, as they are rusty and the mattresses are splitting. All staff at this resort are excellent, so friendly and cannot do enough for you. Overall this is a lovely resort which could be improved with small changes.

We stayed her between 13 May and 27 May, a couple in our 40's it suited us perfectly. Most other people were of a similar age. Plenty of sunbeds round the pool. On a weekend several Thai families came but it was still not busy and there was a convention and Yoga retreat whilst we were there.

The chalets are set in lovely gardens in a quiet location and were not busy at all. They were clean and comfortable and as they were individual there was no noisy neighbours, The room was spacious with a fridge and a water heater, tea and coffee were provided. The room was cleaned daily. The staff were friendly and although the restaurants were more expensive than the local restaurants they were not expensive and depending on the tour operator you booked with you got a discount on the final blll.

Although there was only one other place to eat to the left of the compex on the beach, if you walk past the Holiday Inn you come to a street of shops/bars/restaurants/massage parlours. Approx 15 minute walk in total.

We regularly went into Ruby shop you cant miss her she will be standing hoola hooping outside. We had a massage there for 200 baht and cocktails were 90 baht. She would also give you a lift back on her scooter to save you the walk.

There were several other restaurants we tried Bow Thai which did a lovely pie when you get sick of eating Thai food! Also Yum Chang Tom, Jack Fruit and Mr Lucky to name a few. All very similar in price. We were paying aroung 500 baht for food and drink in each.

We took a taxi into Cha Am centre 400 baht return but it was too busy for us. Built up and lots of locals. Although there were a lot of vans turned into bars on the beach road selling cocktails for 50 baht.

We also went to Hua Hin which was very busy. The night market was good and there was lots of bars with Thai girls luring you in. This wasnt our kind of place but was nice to see.

All in all I think we had the best of both worlds, peace and quiet of the Regent chalets with enough shops/bars a 15 min walk away but a short taxi ride to busier resorts.

I would definately consider going back to this resprt in the future.

Room Tip: all room are in wooden chalets and a good location, however as resort spread out a room closer to po...
