    Alan is right, Cha Am is a twenty minute or more taxi ride from Hua Hin. We like the White Sand Hotel in Hua Hin, within easy walking distance of beach, town centre, night market, helpful staff, great breakfast at a restaurant at the end of the soi and very reasonably priced. Good base for anything you want to do in Hua Hin area.

    We have stoopped here

    http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_R...ch-Cha_am.html

    It was clean and cheap, right opposite the beach, and lots of shops and bars all around, nice and quiet all the same.

    It was ok for a few days, anymore than that I would stay in a hotel.
    I'm there

    That is a nice hotel. We made the mistake of staying at Courtyard By Marriott in Hau Hin some while back. Actually it was a hotel that we had looked at sometime before when it went under a different name. As, at that time courtyard were offering something like 1700Baht/night, we jumped at the chance.

    It was OK, however all the 'Courtyards' seem for some reason to have an open air restaurant. The Hau Hin one is unfortunate in that there is a dirty stream running down the side, this results in quite a lot of flies in the restaurant!, well it did when we were there. Maybe it's me but I like to eat breakfast in an air conditioned area..especially in the hot months.

    I can recommend Grand Pacific Sovereign, that is where we now always stay when in the Hau Hin Cha-am area. You do need a car though if you want to visit say Hau Hin. You will normally find a reasonable deal at this hotel by looking at www.asiareservations.net . It did initially go under five star, but now seems to be advertised as a four star.

    lamai,

    Stayed in Cha Amm in May this year and not sure of the name as Thai wife sorted it out but it was a yellow and white painted Guest House next to a 7/11 opposite the beach for THB650pn (no breakfast) and a cheapy at the back for our driver (actually a cousin of Dao) for THB450.

    I will try to find out the name as I'm sure the boss gave Dao a card saying come again. What we liked about Cha Amm as opposed to the big neighbour was the sea food market where it lands and you can buy virtually off the boats and take on the beach.

    We had previously stayed in the Regent Cha Amm (now Holiday Inn Cha Amm) which was half way between the two towns but were there during the sale from private to corporate so things were a bit awkward with the staff not knowing if they had a job or not.

    Anyway from the wife on our departure back to BKK "Cha Amm for Thai's and Hua Hin for Farang with big money"

    I've been looking at some hotels in Cha Am via the asiarooms website and I can't believe what prices each hotels are charging per night
    Court Yard By Marriott was £200.00 P, Now £64.89
    Dusit Thani Hau Hin was £ 228.78 , Now £ 82.69
    Golden Beach Hotel Cha Am ,was £57.17 , Now £ 26.91

    It looks like that there are some bargain to be had.

    Yep big hotels slashing prices and as such I was looking at Koh Chang where a £250pn was down to £35pn which goes to show how much they were ripping in the first place

    chibasixty,

    We were in Cha Amm mid-week so probably missed the noise however I and wife Dao never mind the driver (on a free holiday from Phitsanulok) thoroughly enjoyed the town and as posted above think it beats Hua Hin for Thainess.

    The guest house/hotel in Cha Amm was actually better than some I have paid a lot more for in other parts of LOS

    Surely only you can decide on that? Helps if you're into golf...
