I booked using the Dusit Club package, which provided great value for money in terms of meaningful "free" extras (breakfast, Club snack & pre dinner drinks etc. The hotel facilities are top class, both the accommodation (room size, facilities, cleanliness), grounds are A++++ in terms of the view, landscaping, amazing pool area, proximity to the beach. It was like paradise.
The staff were informal, thoroughly friendly and professional to the holidaying traveller. Nothing was too much trouble and that was from every staff member from supervisers to gardeners.
The location Hua Hin is 2 hours drive from Bangkok and is a place for couples, families, business get aways. The area has lots of resorts, so there's plenty of tourists visible but with a complete absence of the glitz of Bangkok or Phuket. It seems a strong European, Thai and Asian holiday destination.
Plenty of typical Thailand tourist tours to experience, including both historic and natural attractions.
If you want a wonderfully relaxing hiliday in the best possible surroundings, then look no further. If you want boozy nightlife and girlie bars, go to Bangkok or Phuket.
Veranda Resort & Spa is a wonderful hotel. Nice large rooms with furnished balcony where it is great to sit and relax in the afternoon. Privat beach with free sunbeds. Beach has a couple of nice small beachrestaurants where also massage is given. Big pool surrounded by sunbeds. About 20 min with taxi to Hua Hin. All in all great spot to stay and explore.
Facilities are par for that price range. Maybe 8 mins from Cha Am, 20 mins from Hua Hin.
Pros: beach is quiet and pretty private, nice pool, located on the southern end away from the main beach Cha Am. Cons: it IS also a convention center. So beware when you get a large group of people.

Excellent services, helpful staff and good facilities. It has a big lagoon pool, beautiful landscaping, reasonable kids club with variety of activities. It is beside the beach, has spacious room, overall, it is excellent for family with children. Note: The hotel has connecting rooms, the twin room has 2 double beds, this allows for family with children to stay together, and space to move in the room. However, do take note the hotel does not have a lift, for elderly or those with difficulty climbing staircase, do book the room on the ground floor.

Not close to the beach, you have to take the shuttle to their sister hotel in Hua hin, which is better to stay in that city. Everything is old and needs a renovation. The pool is dirty. We can't use the jacuzzis because of the water problem. It's far from everything, not even a 7eleven is near. The staff barely understands English and up until the last day, when we were leaving, everyone started to greet us.

"A large open hotel with lovely grounds but empty."
We have stayed here twice. It's very quiet in August and not all the facilities are available then. The two huge pools are great. The grounds are great. We would have liked more facilities and greater choice of restaurants. The Regency wing is where we stayed.
We booked two junior suites but got two Regency rooms which were pool facing and smaller.
There were lots of large groups for corporate meetings during August and little for families to do.
We asked at reception and they did organise two craft sessions eventually for about an hour.
