Phu Quoc now has so much charm and natural beauty, but with multi-million dollar plans for expansion, it won't remain that way for long. Major developments are underway around the island and it will soon be just another overpriced island destination. Having said that, Coco Palm is located away from the chaos - it is small and unassuming little piece of paradise!! We stayed 4 nights at the beginning of a 5 week stay in Asia - what a way to kick off things! Our bungalow (11) was located at the end of a row of bungalows a stone throw from the beach with amazing views of the water. The rooms are basic and the bathroom is semi-covered (indoor/outdoor). There is mosquito netting for the bed, a/c and wifi. The beach is fantastic and the service is great. We were looking to rest and were served right because the resort is located in a quiet area and there are no activities on site. It is however an approximate 15 minute drive to downtown Duong Duong where there is an amazing night market, shopping and many restaurants. Many hotels are located on this stretch of beach (Long Beach) so it is more crowded and lively. After comparing the two, we by far preferred where we were staying. Taxis are more expensive on Phu Quoc than in other parts of Vietnam, so be prepared to spend around $15 each way to and from town. Mango Bay resort is right next door if all you're looking for is a change of pace it has a great menu but comes at a premium. I would highly recommend this place for couples and solo travellers or anyone for that matter that wants a nice relaxing holiday with friendly and helpful staff. I would return in a heartbeat!
