The resort is at the western end of Maenam beach, quite far from the center and the market. We rented a car, which I'd recommend, since without it you either stay at the resort, walk your legs off or spend a fortune on taxis. We had a deluxe bungalow with seaview, which was nice, bright and big enough. I'd avoid the standard bungalows, since they are further from the beach, restaurant and pool area and also looked quite small. The breakfast was OK, but could use more variety and better replenishment. The power went out three times for few hours, during our stay, which is not necessarily the hotel's fault, but was a bit annoying still. The restaurant served tasty food, but the service was rather slow, considering there are usually very few people eating there (I wonder what would happen if all the tables were occupied). Our experience with the staff was mixed, some of them were helpful and friendly, some of them could do better with the smiles. The beach is rather narrow and fairly steep.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. You will not be disappointed, as long as you remember this is a 3-star resort and set your expectations accordingly, but the resort management has some work to do to move the resort up another level.
