0.26km from SAMUIVISARUN & VISASERVICEWe were staying at Hacienda for almost 2 weeks in Jan/Feb 2020 and enjoyed our stay very much. We had booked a garden bungalow which was a little further from the beach but we didn’t mind at all, as it was situated in a small beautiful garden. Location We loved the location as Hacienda is in the centre of Maenam beach. There are many restaurants and bars nearby. If you need to exchange money or buy something from the supermarket, you can find plenty of places to do so, as the main road is just around the corner. We also loved the walking street market which takes place nearby every Thursday from 17:00 to approx 22:00. Rooms The rooms were clean and had everything we needed, including a safe and a small fridge. There was also an air-conditioner (which we appreciated very much) and a fan (which we kept running at low speed at night, as it could get very hot and we had trouble sleeping). In the beginning we had some trouble with ants coming out of the wall in the bathroom but we decided not to make a big deal of it. We didn’t bother them and they didn’t bother us in return, haha. Be prepared that some small geckos may get into your room, but again, not a big deal - it’s Thailand. The cleaning staff is very attentive and does a nice job preparing the room. Hacienda is supposedly running some eco program to save water - there are fliers in the room that encourage you not to change the towels every day if you don’t really need to. Which we didn’t and we let the staff know we don’t need the room cleaned every day, but we received new towels every day anyways. I didn’t quite understand this part. The 2 bottles of fresh water every day were very appreciated though. Food The breakfast was simple but nice, it was being served all day. We booked through Booking and had 3 options for breakfast - Thai, Continental and Western (+ additional 60 thb). All options included tea/coffee, baguette/croissant/toast, juice and a fruit platter with mango, banana, watermelon and pineapple. Thai option included extra rice soup (which we didn’t try), Continental option included only things mentioned above and Western option included extra eggs, bacon, sausages, baked potato and some fresh veggies. You can also order anything from the breakfast menu for an additional charge. The rest of the menu includes western and thai cuisine but it is quite pricey for Thailand, therefore we decided to eat somewhere else. Staff We can only say the best about Pu and Som - they really tried their best to make our stay pleasant. They were very nice and attentive, we especially appreciated the option to make slight changes to our pre-made breakfast menus. They also booked us a taxi to airport (slightly cheaper than other taxis) and also helped us to call the company which was supposed to pick us up at the hotel but was 30minutes late. They deserve all our thanks.
