Stayed here between Christmas and New Year 2011. Always spend a lot of time researching to find the 'perfect' place for a break and decided to try Hua Hin having been to Phuket, Samui and Koh Lanta among others.
FIrst of all, Hua Hin is in my opinion more down market that the other places stayetioned. So, there are not lots of upscale places to stay. Cape Nidhra is, from what I've seen, one of the best. New, nicely designed, clean. Definitely recommend the Mood Deck Rooms as you have your own private roof terrace. This was great as the pool area is a bit of a bun fight for beds.
If it was my hotel, I would sort there restaurant out. At night, dim the lights, get some candles on the tables, and make it feel more inviting. Right now it looks like a canteen.
All staff, while friendly overall, lack the Thai charm. I felt the staff in the restaurant seemed unhappy in their jobs and just didn't have the warmth that you normally associate with Thai hotels.
All sounds picky I know. It is a nice place. However, people with kids, can you go somewhere else? It is not a family hotel or place for kids. If you do bring them, keep and eye on them. I don't want to hear your kids running around and you shouting at them in the pool. Go to the Sofitel / Hilton where they have kids facilities.
Lastly it's right on the main road but you don't hear the noise that much. The surrounding landscape is a bit rough but again, this doesn't spoil the overall stay.
Would I return to this hotel? Yes, if I had to come back to Hua HIn. Would I come back to Hua Hin? No.
