During our five day stay at the Cua Dai hotel, we found the staff to be absolutely lovely - not just reception, but the breakfast and housekeeping staff always had a smile for us. We took a standard room, we looked at a Deluxe too but the standard looked good enough and was facing away from the street more so we felt it would be quieter.
Cua Dai is on quite a busy road but in our room we didn't notice it too much, although the rooms aren't at all well sound proofed - there was some noise from local dogs fighting one night, and another night some other guests decided to talk until late in their room with the inner windows wide open, and we heard all of that.
The gardens are absolutely lovely and very well kept, the pool is very nice although could use a little bit of maintenance. Breakfast was very nice, lots of options, although coffee sits around for a while during the breakfast period so doesn't taste so fresh and not up to usual Vietnamese standards.
The room was reasonably comfortable - the furnishings were a little dated and the bedding was quite tired and we could have done with more electrical sockets. Air conditioning was excellent, very efficient and quiet. The bathroom was excellent with a lovely rain shower and individual water heater. We felt it was a little on the pricey side for what it was ($39/night for standard).
It's a bit out of town and away from the action, allow 15-20 minutes to walk to the centre of the old town but you can rent a bicycle next door or across the road for 20,000 dong per day and it's well worth doing that to check out the beaches and explore the area a bit more. Make sure you visit some of the businesses near the hotel - there are shops, spas, restaurants and I highly recommend Phu Thien restaurant - turn left out of the hotel, walk 5 minutes and it's on the right hand side of the road.
