Hi, we just spent 11 days here, in fact we came here 2.5 years ago and loved it so much we came back with our 15 month old son, i cannot fault it again and will definitly be back again. Yes, it may be slightly dated but that is what gives it the brilliant charm, it is not over the top luxury but it shares the same beach as one of Samuis best hotels (Santaburi, next door). the rooms are spotless, clean they have air conditioning, small fridge and loads of storage space. we had a huge bed and space for our sons cot, which they provided, and still had lots of space. the balcony is enormous and has a lovely table and chairs to relax at.
The food is brilliant and the menu is very extensive, there is a good mix of local and western dishes, they will accomodate anything you wish. The staff do not speak much English but if you want to communicate then learn their language, after all you are in their country! There were a few guests staying there who were getting frustrated by the lack of english spoken and the difficulty in communicating, i would say that if you want to communicate easily then stay at home, the staff are charming and very attentive.
The beach is lovely, wide, and if you want it shady, the water is great and shallow enough for our sum to play. the resort is very safe and extremely child friendly.
If you want abeach front room then you will need to book early as they get booked out a year ahead by people who, like us, keep returning. the best rooms are the front row A5-A7 and A8-A12 although we had a B row room in the second row (B12) and it was great, our son loved playing in the garden and jungle like paths.
We will be back, than you Maenam Beach Resort Staff!
