“Terrible!”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Never stay here!:(
Swimming pool is really small, reception isn't friendly. There are a lot of ants in the bed and mosquitos at the room - you can't sleep! At the last day they say that we used minibar and must pay, but we didn't.

Our first impression was that hotel was a bit small. But just after a few hours we just loved it. The small and personal hotel was perfect for us after a busy period of work. The relaxed atmosphere at the hotel was brilliant and you felt to be at home pretty soon. We stayed in a pool deluxe room and had the pool (small one) just outside our doorstep. The room is a bit small when you arrived with two large suitcases. But we managed to rearranged it. When it rained it was a smell in the room but housekeeping did everything to keep this away. I strongly believe its not the hotel that can be blamed due to Koh Samui plumbing situation when heavy rainfalls can come quickly. This was not an issue for us anyway. Small gardens with large hammocks (swings) if you want to enjoy this. Sunbeds for guests both on beach and infront of their Beachfront bungalows. After nearly 15 times on Samui this became a favorite of all the hotels we stayed at.

Let me just explain a bit of Mae Nam beach and small village. If you looking for bars, discos, clubs and heavy nightlife. Do not go here. This is not the place for you. If you want peace and slow relaxing envoirment this might be the place for you. Small and cheap restaurant, many owned by families and we had excellent food just outside hotel. Every Thursday its a nightmarket just 50 m from hotel where you can buy a lot of different things, have a drink listen to local thai bands and singers. Very good market but not as big as the ones on other places but a good local one.

Beach of Mae nam is also good. The tide dont effect the situation that much and just outside Hammock its really good. A few rocks on the sandy bottom but in the crystal clear water you will see them.

Finally back to the hotel. The restaurant is really good and what I believe reasonable prices and a big selection of food, drinks, local excellent thai beers and wine. Breakfast is absolutly one of the best. Crispy bacon, eggs of your choice and different kinds of bread and also croissants. 3-4 different kinds of fresh juices, good coffee.

What I like mostly is the staff. Excellent from housekeeping, gardeners, kitchenstaff, all serving people in the restaurant and bar. Excellent service in the reception at check in, questions along the way. All these parameters above made this to a memorable stay for us.

Also if you want to visit Koh Samui and Koh Phangan you have a small service with boat only 50-100 m walking from The Hammock and Lomphraya catamaran service a bit further away. So you can easily combine two great islands.

thanks to all personal at The Hammock from room P01 (20june-16july 2014)

Stayed here a week with my girlfriend as part of our island hopping tour of Thailand. It's a great place.

Rooms are small, but comfortable and cosy. Checked in around 7 pm after a nightmare 6hr delayed boat from the mainland, were greeted well and promptly shown to the room. It was icy cold, which was a nice touch.

I'll be honest and say it's nothing exceptional, but it was clean, tidy, fairly modern and an awesome place to stay, the location right on the beach instantly puts you in chill out mode everyday!

Was very difficult to find. My advice here is get a taxi to the Hutcha resort. It is right beside the hammock, you have to go down a couple of roads from the Main Street and even then you don't see it until you're basically at the entrance.

The only cons were that the hot water was practically non existent after 10.30am. This was fine coming off the hot beach as a cold shower was actually welcome, but after an evening of food, drink and sweating, it was not great coming back to a cold shower. Not freezing, but cool.

The pool was a big reason in us booking this place, and sadly I never used it once as it never really looked clean. Always has stuff floating in it and sometimes the bottom of it was dirty and the water cloudy, but thankfully the beach was perfect.

Finally the breakfast was really good, a decent selection and fresh for a buffet. My advice however would be to go for breakfast before 9am as the restaurant is very small, and with most people leaving it to within the last 60 mins to eat, it could become a bit of a free for all. For some reason people see a buffet and all manners seem to disappear, then suddenly it's arms coming over your shoulder and past your head. It was actually uncomfortable to eat during the peak of breakfast. However getting up earlier meant about 2 other couples there and you could take your time and actually enjoy breakfast.

Final tip, a matter of metres separate each row of bungalows from the next (3 rows in total) just book the cheapest room and walk the extra 6 seconds to the beach, no point in spending hundreds of dollars extra when all the rooms are the same.

sun-beds and a nice shower after the sea bath
Not easy to find

My husband and I stayed at The Hammock for two nights. The customer service was wonderful! The staff always greeted us with a smile. We stayed in a Superior Bungalow. I should note that the bungalow was very, very small. However, it was clean and comfortable and suited our needs (as we wanted to spend most of our time outside enjoying the beach).

The buffet breakfast is lovely with plenty of options (eggs, toast, cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, etc.). The electricity did go out once during our stay, but it was fixed immediately upon informing the staff. Another thing to note is that the pool is also very, very small. Again, we were there to enjoy the beach -- but it is worth mentioning for future travelers.

We were looking for a tranquil spot on Koh Samui, and Mae Nam beach suited us perfectly. If you are looking to party, this probably isn't the place for you. However, if you are looking for a peaceful place to relax, you will love it!

At the end of our stay, we headed to Thong Nai Pan on Koh Phangan. If anyone else is staying on Mae Nam beach before heading to the east coast of Koh Phangan (Thong Nai Pan, Haad Thien, Than Sadet, or Haad Rin), I recommend taking the Thong Nai Pan Express (located just a few minutes walk from The Hammock). The boat will drop you off directly at your beach, rather than having to take a separate taxi across the island (saving you time and money).

I got lost for two hours trying to find this place, so good luck, have a smartphone and local sim card so you can call the resort for directions when you get lost. However, with all that being said, you will be rewarded by a pleasant little resort with Bungalo style rooms that are nicely appointed with beach towels, a good pressurized hot shower, cable and wifi. The rooms are a bit small, but for short term stays it works fine and there might be larger superior rooms avaiable as well. The beach is nice, the breakfast was good, sunchairs, pool, bar, motorbike parking, it had everything I really needed. It was easy walking to the small beach town of Maenam that has a night bazaar on Thursday night.

Room Tip: Have good directions to the resort, the phone number from resort website as all info from Booking.co...

We stayed here for 4 nights in June and its a great place. Rooms are clean and spacious and has a great shower. We had a superior bungalow with air con and tv. 2 bottles of water were given everyday and breakfast is included in the price. Varied selection on the breakfast which was yummy!! There was a slight smell in the bathroom from the drains but nothing to really complain about. Overall - perfect!!
