This hotel is stunning. The gardens are beautiful and relaxing. Although it is a little away from the centre of town, there's a free shuttle three times a day and you just need to get a taxi back (haggle down to 200 baht - it's about £4).
The restaurant within the hotel is fantastic, we had either lunch or dinner here every day and the other meal was had in town depending what we were doing that day. Breakfast was good although the menu can be quite funny. There are Asian options and European options daily, plus every day there is a cooked breakfast (usually a frankfurter, some kind of egg and some kind of vegetable - not necessarily as you'd expect) and French toast, pancakes (may I highly recommend these), homemade croissants (I had one every day - delicious), cereals, fruit, meats, cheeses, breads (optionally toasted) and jams.
The pool is lovely and the beach is nice enough, although we are not really beach people.
"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.

Staff very friendly and helpful, hotel is clean and quiet, with beautiful sea breeze, sometimes air con is not needed.
Buffet breakfast superb value for your money, would definitely stay again next time I am in Cha-Am.
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.

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.
A very relaxing 4 night stay at the very nice Hotel de la Paix. The rooms are very big and boast an amazing shower that comes from the ceiling in the middle of the bathroom! The hotel staff excelled in every way... with superb customer service. Breakfasts were delicious and varied day by day, the BBQ buffet was fantastic value and the food was very tasty. I would recommend this hotel for couples wanting an 'away from it all' break. I would not recommend it to those wanting a more lively holiday due to the location of the hotel. On the downside it took 30 minutes by shuttle bus to get into Hua Hin - which isn't the prettiest place I have ever been in Thailand. We also could not swim in the sea due to the jelly fish. That said, we were happy to laze on our sunbeds and use the hotel pools :)
We booked for a 4 night relaxing stay by the beach and got just that.
We were made very welcome on arrival and shown to a great room in the smaller block above the reception area and overlooking the pool area.
I had read previous comments about walking straight into the bathroom area so did wonder what to expect. As you enter the room yes the bathroom area is to your right - a shower type curtain can be drawn across - and to your left is the wardrobe etc with s louver door in front of you leading to the spacious bedroom. Although unusual this did not cause a problem.
A large bathroom area with a huge walk in shower enclosure and most unique brightly coloured ceramic bathtub which was a lot more comfortable than it looked.
A well equipped room with the most comfortable of beds.
We used the restaurant a couple of times for dinner eating in the area set up around the pool - both the food and service were first class and we would highly recommend doing this.
Breakfast was served in a small open air restaurant behind the pool area and just across a small road. A great selection each day and again first class service.
