My boyfriend and I checked into this hotel after staying on nam du island for a days. We had previously stated down the street at Another hotel. We thought it would be a nice place. We had already checked in before I read the horrible reviews. I was thinking well it's not that terrible for the price, we weren't expecting... More

This hotel looks good in the photos, but our experience was not a good one. No soap in the bathroom and when we asked for some were told there wasn't any but eventually he found another miniature shampoo bottle. The room itself was OK but the bathroom was very shabby with cracked tiles, terrible grouting and not very clean. We... More

It has probably once been quite an impressive hotel and the lobby, entrance fountain and facade makes you believe it's really a four star classy hotel. Unfortunately the total lack of maintenance sins the hotel was built gets obvious already in the dirty and smelly elevator. When you step into the room you feel the heavy smell of mould, see...

From outside this hotel looks OK. Inside is where the problems are! We checked in wondering what was going on. There were 2 employees and no guests. We soon found out why. Big financial problems haunt this hotel. They can not provide the service you would expect from any hotel. They changed our room three times in one hour because... More

First impressions on arrival were good with the imposing entrance hall and Reception - apart from no one coming out to greet us and/or help with our luggage, unlike every other hotel (even more basic ones) we've been to in VN - and we've been to a few! However our room did not match the good first impressions - a... More

We stayed at Sea Light just for a night as a stopover before taking the ferry to Phu Quoc. My parents loved it and the receptionist (her name is My!) with her incredible hospitality totally made our day. We were late for collecting the ferry tickets and when I barely asked if the ferry company office is nearby, she quickly... More

I happened to stay at his hotel just for one night. Location is no doubt very good as you may sea from your window of some rooms. Foods are just ok as there are very few options in breakfast, also cleaneliness is big issue.

The vision of a luxury 5 star hotel is there but the management is not.
