We booked this property with a view to doing nothing for a week - we simply wanted to relax, enjoy the warm weather and not feel 'guilty' that we weren't missing out on all the 'sights'.
The An Lam villas met the brief perfectly. The staff were excellent (Tran, our 'butler' was there to meet our biggest requests), the food was outstanding (the seafood evening was brilliant), the beach was superb (I read someone whinging in a review about the quality of the sand - really, how peurile - a prelapsarian dreamer!), the swimming was very good and the amenities readily available - canoes, etc.
The Villa rooms were huge (we had a Lagoon Villa), but without doors...if this makes you feel uncomfortable, beware! That said, we didn't feel anything but secure. during the stay, with the only intrusion an errant frog...There were some minor issues with soft furnishing starting to show some wear, however these were trivial issues in the overall picture.
We used the gym several times, took the long bush walk, went to the Spa (excellent value massage with friendly staff) and enjoyed the experience.
The management are readily available, and both Zok and Ursula are charming, friendly hosts.
This is a quiet resort - if you want brash and loud, the Vinpearl resort may suit you. If you want luxury, quiet, great food and the opportunity to unwind, I fully recommend the An Lam Villas.
