We stayed at Maenam for 9 days recently and had a lovely time. We started off in a 2 bedroom bungalow which was set amongst lovely gardens with room for the kids to play. We later moved to a beachfront 1-room bungalow which was fantastic as it was right on the sand.
The water did get deep quickly however our kids had floaties so it wasn't too much of a concern. The atmosphere was very quiet and relaxed but it was only about 20 minutes drive in a taxi if you wanted to go to Chaweng.
The restaurant served nice food which was well priced but there were plenty of other places to eat if you wanted a change. We found Shady Shack next door where a lovely older lady served nice food and loved having a giggle with our children. There were also several restaurants along the road which lead to the main road, and the main road itself. 7-Eleven was only about 10 mins walk away if you needed to stock up on snacks and there were regular food vendors along the beach.
I found the staff at Maenam were a little serious but not unhelpful but perhaps the restaurant staff were a little inexperienced but none of this affected our stay however and we would definitely return.
