“Great Stay, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed 16 April 2014 via mobile

We stayed 4 nights at The Rock and it proved a really comfortable base to explore Hua Hin from.

The resort itself is long and thin and it appears the setup is the closer the room to the beach, the higher the standard. Ours was the entry level one which was still large and of a high standard; it was one of the first ones you come to meaning it was a short walk to the beach and pool (about 2 minutes) but handily placed for Reception and the restau-rant. Although the closest to the road, we still got very little noise from it.

The room was well appointed with two double beds, nice bath and shower and tea \ cof-fee facilities. The air conditioning was effective as was the fridge. We did get a balcony but, from what I could see, most just have views over a vacant plot to the side rather than of the sea. Room servicing is generally good but we did get left out for shampoo etc once which made shower time awkward.

The pool area is lovely with enough shade and beds for everyone and (other hotels take note!!) no sun bed reserving going on!! On occasions there were no pool towels around in the morning and we had to wait for the Spa to open at 10am to get some. There are steps from the pool area down onto the beach but there aren’t any beds there.

Wifi is excellent – free everywhere including the rooms and of a good quality. The hotel was busy whilst we were there (it was Songkran) so breakfast was a bit chaotic at times and the (reasonably limited) selection of items quite often ran low. No problem as the staff (who were excellent in every aspect during our stay) soon replenished it with a cheerful smile.

A shuttle bus which runs into town twice a day is a nice touch. Location wise, The Rock is at the south end of the beach (nice and quiet) so it’s probably a bit too far to walk into town regularly. There’s lots of taxis and songthaews to ferry you about should you need. There are loads of bars and restaurants in walking distance as well as the superb Chi-cada night market which appears to be on at the weekends.

A very good stay in a comfortable hotel with excellent staff – definitely recommended.

Staff and room were great. However travelers need to bring small hand luggage instead of big suitcases as there are no elevators. Food service is slow too, best to order one hour in advance, otherwise just catch the green car to the town area. Located at very quite section of the beach, felt like it was private. My 3 boys love the hotel.

Room Tip: Best to book direct from the hotel, you could write to the front desk manager who is very helpful.

Dear leehk2014,

Thank you for your recent stay with us during your visit to Hua Hin and for sharing your feedback with us.

We are glad to hear that you like our newly renovated beach resort in Khao Takieb area.

Regarding to your comment of the elevator, please allow us to explain that we normally use another stair (only 6 steps) to bring up very large luggage. And our concierge is always stand by to assist our guests travelling with large bags.

We have noted on the delay of our food service you experienced, and we have raised up this issue to the management and chef to improve right away.

Thank you once again for sharing your comment with us and we wish to welcome you back to The Rock Hua Hin again soon.

Kindest regards,

The Rock Hua Hin

Hua Hin is always my favorite but sometimes, it’s quite busy for me... Finally!, I found a wonderful place that meets my purpose in Hua Hin, “The rock Hua Hin” rocks! Because of the location, not much around with a private beach right behind is so perfect.

Moreover, The room is extra large and clean with one of the best bathroom. My first experience with Jacuzzi Private Pool at backyard itself was going so well. The only thing when I could’t find the Jacuzzi on/off button, I called to the front, staff came to us so quickly and was very helpful.

I took a yoga practice in the early morning. I was going into peace and calm while the sun was rising over the horizon. It was so amazing moment.

There are in house outlets and facilities…no need to go out if you are feeling a little bit lazy e.g. Restaurant, Bakery Cafe, Internet Corner, Swimming Pool, Pool Bar and Spa. Whenever you want a crowd pleaser, you can easily walk to Cicada Night Market for acoustic live music, handmade stuff, art gallery and great snack out there. PERFECT!

"One to recommend, I would definitely return"

Room Tip: Room with Jacuzzi Private Pool is my preference.

This place is such a gem, you would be silly to not try it out. This was recommended by a friend and I am going to hug that person as soon as I see them for such a brilliant suggestion. We'd never been to Hua Hin before and from what I had heard, staying out of the city was ideal. This place has amazing service, great rooms, great breakfast and is in a superb, quiet location. And yoga on the weekends! We had an amazing oil massage and spent a decent amount of time at the bar, not terribly expensive but you definitely pay to be in a private place. Em, the manager, was always around chatting with us and others- super friendly and amazingly hospitable. Spend the money for one of the rooms with the private pools, walk the beach, see some of the area and then come home to this beautifully renovated Thai oasis. We will definitely be back.

Our 1st stay at the hotel. We were so impressed by the hospitality of all the staffs. From the bell boy to front counter. Big effort from the bell boy trying to explain & made us really comfortable. Room s huge with one of the best bathroom with separate shower. Also separate balcony with drying corners if u have laundry. Overall, no complaints. Particularly liked the privacy of room layouts. Other than the floor above & below, you don't have room to your left or right. GOOD privacy The long stretch of beautiful beach is just end of the accommodation blocks. After the hotel s own swimming pool & spa. You can easily locate seafood restaurants while strolling along the stretch of beach Nite market is within walking distance too. Highly recommended..for couples, family, or if u just want to be left alone.

I stays here 1 night on the weekend.
Our room is PREMIER Gala.
The room is clean, wide space, but have some little bad smell from air conditioning.
It's located near the convenience place, Hua Hin Mareket, Cicada,and beatiful beach.
I love this place as much. It's worth to pay after fight with the daily life.

Room Tip: All type are good.

We stayed here one night for Valentine's and had the most amazing hotel expirience. The rooms are spacious and clean, but what makes this a 5 star expirience is the superb service. The young hotel manager and his team made a very nice impression providing us fresh flowers in the room and complementary mocktails (a Buddhist holiday prohibited the sales of alcohol that day) at the pool that evening. Later that night, we ordered some food from the restaurant. Not as cheap at the streetfood outside, but a good value for the money.
Unfortunately, the hotel spa hasn't opened yet, but it's rumoured to be of highest class.
I hope that we will have an opportunity to return here.
