“Quality hotel without surprises”
Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

The hotel is managed by the french and so it is more neat. But on the other hand the price is quite expensive because of it. Not all sea view rooms have a real sea view. The hotel area is very nice. It is useful to have a transport to live in Hacienda because it's far from popular places

Dear sir,

Thank you for your good review but you said something about prices which is not so true, our prices are in the average and not expensive for an hotel on the beach, you can compare on the websites with others ones and you will see.
yes not all of our bungalows have sea view but we don't sell them on the websites telling that all have the view on the sea, only the sea view and beach front bungalow have sea view, other category don't have and you won't be able to find any website where we wrote that all bungalows have it, just be careful next time when you book a room in an hotel.
After you said that the hotel is far from popular places, what do you call far? we are at 7mn driving (3km) from the fisherman's village or at 15mn driving (7km) from Chaweng and airport, so it is not too far... After you can book an hotel in the busy Chaweng but is it not quiet and peaceful like here in Maenam Beach...

Thank you for your excellent review, it is always good for us to read nice things like that and it makes our team more motivated to make customers happy.
As we are french we like to serve good french baguette and croissant for breakfast made by our french bakery and customers usually love it.

Our favorite at Koh Samui is Meanam Beach. The Hacienda Beach Resort was just excellent. We rented the villa with private pool, which was quite refreshing compared to the sea ;-) The villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden and it is only a few steps to the sea. Food was great, personnel was great and David, the owner, assisted us with every question we have had. The restaurant in the resort does not serve dinner, but there a quite a few nice restaurants in the neighborhood. Every thursday there is a nightmarket, which we really enjoyed, because compared to other places this one was big enough, but not crowded. We definitely have had a great time.

Room Tip: For a family with two kids the villa is excellent.

Well, I liked the design and location of Hacienda. We got last room, the furthest one from the beach, but we came without booking, so we didnt complain. Everything was so clean, beach towels for use, rooms (even if they need some renovation). Bed very comfy! Great private beach, which is being cared very well. The price was above our budget, so we stayed for 4 or 5 nights only. Also breakfast could be included. Great choice of books and movies for free, when you get bored at the beach or in the room. The staff - especially housekeeping girls and also people from bar were very nice and friendly, they greeted us with a smile always when they saw us. Please tell them praise and compliments from me.

Thank you for your nice review, it help us to improve the quality of the service.
Concerning the renovations, they will be planned soon but need to plan it long time before in order to close the reservations because we have always so much and it's hard to find the best period and then to plan some works.

Arrival:
We had prearranged airport transfer with David and the car was waiting for us when we arrived at the airport. When we arrived, we were greeted with a refreshing welcome drink. Check-in was a breeze, as everything was prepaid. Caroline was really friendly and showed us to our room.

Room:
We were in bungalow 15, which is across the road but the road is quiet and still very close to the beach. Room had a king sized bed, and was clean and comfortable. It had all the basics (hot water, closet with a small safe, 2 bottles of water a day, mini fridge). There was a small TV which we never used (we borrowed some DVDs from the front desk but never got around to watching the movies). Room is cleaned once a day, and the cleaning lady does a very good job.

Service:
David and Caroline were friendly. The staff at the restaurant were also nice, greeting us with smiles all the time. David helped us make a dinner reservation by phone and recommended a hair salon when I asked him for one. We asked for the use of an iron from the front desk and Caroline got it for us right away.

Restaurant:
We only had one lunch at the restaurant. Drinks were delivered swiftly, and while they got my husband's food order wrong twice(first time they brought out a completely different dish, second time it was the right dish but with pork instead of the chicken we ordered), we ended up just eating what they gave us and the food was good. We are on vacation, and aren't fussy with mistakes like these. This is Thailand after all! Points to the waitress for trying, and she did deliver the second attempt very quickly. The restaurant is closed for dinner but there are many good restaurants nearby to choose from.

Beach and location:
This property is right on the beach. Beach is quiet, with no obnoxious party music from neighboring resorts/bars, which is appreciated. There is a massage hut right by the lounge chairs. I recommend the body massages from that place, but NOT the facial massage as they used a product that stung and had to be washed off right away. Thursday night there is a walking night market which was interesting to see. We had yummy pad thai, pancakes, mango sticky rice and coconut ice cream from the stalls. Worth a visit! There is a taxi stand 2 mins from the hotel, as well as a scooter rental on the same street. Hotel is about 20 mins from the airport. We loved the location as it was very convenient and still quiet.

Overall:
We love this hotel! It's small but offered almost everything we would want on a vacation. For the things they did not offer (dinner), there were so many options nearby that it really wasn't a problem. There is no pool but we knew this when we booked and we liked that this is a very budget friendly hotel and understand that having something like a pool might increase the cost of maintenance. We spent most of our days by the beach anyway and didn't really miss not having a pool. We had a wonderful holiday and will be back at the Hacienda Beach!!

Even though we stayed in the last garden room of the property, it was just a 2 minute walk to the beach. The room had all the basic amenities that one would require and it was clean. David is a friendly guy who gave a tour of the hotel and the room. Breakfast was plain, fresh and tasty. I enjoyed all day at the sunbeds provided. There is also a massage hut beside the sunbeds, which you can enjoy after a nice swim in the sea. You can enjoy the Mae-num market on Thursday. Bikes are available at the nearby laundry and make sure you wear a helmet if you are going anywhere. Sun rise, walk on the mae-num beach and a swim; right at your hotel - perfect recipe for peace. I had a wonderful holiday!

Thank you so much for your nice review, as you said, we try to give the best quality in the rooms, the breakfast and the lunch, we cook everything on demand, and not make a buffet for breakfast, that's why they are not included in the prices but they are much more fresh than in a buffet, and that's why people likes them ! So as you you know it, our customers can have breakfast whenever they want, there is no limit time to have breakfast like in lot of hotel.

Hope to see you again next time.
