We had the 2 bedroom villa with private pool. It is a good size villa with kitchen facilities and a good size living room. The pool size is adequate when it is for your private use. The communal pool is very small, just slightly larger than the private pool at our villa. The hotel is similar to the Six Sense resort but the facilities probably a grade below. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. If you do not have your own transportation, this hotel is about 20 minutes drive from downtown Hua Hin. Although there is hotel shuttle, it is still a bit remote. What I didn't like about the rooms are that the bedroom doors are clear glass whichs mean there is limited privacy. The other problem is that there are lots of bugs and although the hotel said they fumigate the rooms every week, there are always some small bugs inside the rooms. Even though they sweep the front door every day, there are always dead bugs in the morning or when we get back at night. For people who like living the natural envirnoment, this should not be too much of a problem. There is a huge insect net above the bed to catch dead bugs. Even though they are just small bugs, it was not my favourite thing about the hotel. The hotel is near the hillside but have what is called Dhevan Dara Beach Club that you can go and use their plot of land on the beach. It is ok, but does not have very nice facilities for you to change and shower. It is basically renting some restaurant's back area on the beach for toilet and change area. The part of the beach is also only so-so.
Having said that, if you are going during peak period (eg: Christmas and New Year), it is hard pressed to find a decent rate at a beach front property at Hua Hin and the Dhevan Dara may be a suitable choice for you.
There is nothing really wrong with this property and some people would probably consider it not too bad. However, for me, I would prefer something closer to town. And if looking at a property out of the way, then probably the Six Senses as it is a bit nicer.
