Historical Traveller Reviews of Marriott Hua Hin Marriott Resort & Spa Hotel
Great for Birthdaysfrom Kopterkuts
Our room had a sea view and was OK, the shower was a bit weak on water pressure, but the bed was decorated with rose petals and sculptured towels. We decided to have our first evening meal in the hotelsThai restaurant as it was my husbands birthday and we wanted to treat ourselves. On the return to our room after exploring the hotel grounds we had a birthday cake delivered, which was a lovely surprise. Also after the meal the restaurant staff delivered a cake along with candles whilst they sang Happy Birthday, to my much embarrased husband.
The only major problem we had is that one day upon returning to our room they were doing some refurbishment next door, varnishing the furniture and the smell in our room was horrendous. My husband complained and they moved us to another room, with a beach view which was also bigger and had a great shower.
It did rain for six days whilst we were there but the hotel obviously could do nothing about that except to lend us umbrellas. It did mean that we did quite a bit of walking around the new large shopping mall, even planned to see a film but the sun came out again.
The only fault is that the hotel is a bit far out and had to get a tuk tuk each night into the resort. We could have walked but did not really want to arrive in the resort hot and sweating before the evening had started. The tuk tuks all charged us 60 baht per journey no matter where about in Hua Hin we got off or on. I think this is the only english they know "60 baht".
Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

7 stars hotel on the beachfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The town is not spectacular but has a pretty evening market, the hotel is 10-15 minutes walking from 'downtown' or 60baht with a 6 person tuktuk.
For us the perfect way to end a fantastic holidays in an impressive country!
Loved our stay at Marriottfrom baggo55
Tuk Tuk's (I loved them) cost about 50 baht to town centre where there are loads of great places to eat, meals & drinks usually around £15 for two.
We spent nearly every night in the bar at the Hilton Hotel, it was one of the few air-conditioned ones, and boy did you need it! Beer was a bit more expensive but there was a great group on every night.

Good place to relax but keep an eye on your childrenfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The train trip from Bangkok was a nightmare, due to an accident it took us over 12 hours. But in principle it can be done within 5 hours I believe.
Check in at front desk was a bit unpleasant, had expected more Thai hospitality in stead of cold professionalism.
The public areas are marvellous, open structure, big sofa's, beautiful gardens, spacy. Swimming pool is nice and well decorated with little stone animals (turtles, elephants), more for splashing than for swimming since rather small. In the pool a cocktail bar, unfortunately with not much service. Supply of bath towels is generous, it is however a pity that chairs and beds are difficult to find, one has to reserve a bed before breakfast. I hate to do it, but if everyone runs for it at 7h30 .. you have to compete along. Once upon return from breakfast my towel and book were simply removed by the way.
The beach is not very special, however, I have not seen many hotels in Hua Hin with this type of direct access. Of course one has to get used to the vendors and horse men ... but isn't that part of the fun? Or do we want to lock our selves in sterile hotels without any contact with Thai?
Rooms are quite dark and humid but okay, especially the ones with a little private garden overlooking the swimming pool are really lovely. Mind you, this was before the tsunami, now we would feel a bit awkward that low and close to the beach.
Breakfast is busy and hectic, but plenty of choice. Unfriendly waitress, one of them shouted to my kid (5 years old) which I find highly unappropriate, in particular in Thailand. The reason: the kid took a toast with him to the swimming pool. That was forbidden she acclaimed, the rest of the week she kept special attention to us to see whether we again would smuggle some sandwiches from the table .. we felt like school children. Lunch and dinner options are good, but very expensive.
The spa/massage is well designed, spacy, professionally run, but ... way too expensive. In any massage house in town prices were ten times as low. As a result we had no difficulties to book, we had the impression that the place was always deserted.
The only serious problem we encountered was the kids club. Staff ran out very often and did not return sometimes for hours! The list of activities that was posted on a daily basis had nothing to do with the reality. The activities simply did not take place, and most of the time there was nobody there. We had the feeling they had to be waitress or waiter in the nearby beach bar or had other duties as well. They completely abandoned the children. And that with the public beach and the sea only some footsteps away! So we brought our kid to the club but from a distance we did not loose sight of the exit door. Which is not the idea of a kids club, right? Complaints were accepted, never acted upon.
All in all, still a place to recommend. When money is not important, when you entertain your children your self, and when you love the beach, I believe this is a good choice in Hua Hin.
Top Local Tips for Hua Hin
tuk tuks tuk tuks are the only way to get around, barter (nicely), tip as it is soooo cheap and enjoy the wind in your hair!
Eat for £2.50 go to the back of the menus where the noodles/thai food is
Getting around Hua Hin city The Tuk-tuks are fairly expensive considering it's a relatively short trip to the city from the hotel. Just a guide that any trip within the city shouldn't be 100baht or above.
