Karoon was recommended by my son who has stayed there several times. Built on stilts over the ocean. Like previous reviews, the room rocks with the ocean and has a soothing effect. The room is basic but adequate. Shower was very small - bed comfortable. No air conditioning so it seems a little hot and stuffy. The best part was the terrace where the restaurant is located. The views of Hua Hin were terrific - the terrance very relaxing. For those on a budget, I highly recommend Karoon - close to restaurants and shopping.
