We normally prefer to stay in beach bungalows but couldn't find anything suitable. We'd seen good reviews for Ampha Place and decided to give it a try.
The hotel is in a good spot, less than 2 minutes walk from the beach and within easy walking distance to the main street where there are lots of restaurants and street sellers.
The hotel is kept well maintained and very clean. The room we stayed in was of a good size and had a lovely big bed which was comfortable, TV and mini bar fridge. One bonus was that the curtains didn't let the sunlight in so you got a good nights sleep.
The bathroom was modern with quality fixtures and the air conditioning worked well.
All the hotel rooms have a small balcony with a table and chairs and overlook the swimming pool.
The swimming pool was kept exceptionally clean, and could be used between the hours of 9am and 9pm. There were also sun loungers for guests use around the pool.
The hotel also serves breakfast and has a small bar area, whilst we didn't use the bar we did on one occasion have breakfast which was good.
Mae Nam is not really touristy which is what we liked about the place. There are lots of good quality and very reasonably priced restaurants near the hotel. The restaurants on the beach cater more for tourists but on the one occasion we ate at a beach bar we found it overpriced and not particularly good.
I'd definitely recommend the Ampha - it has everything you need and more!
