We were deciding between the Anantara and the Essence Hoi An, and I think the Anantara was a good choice.
Location: Excellent location right outside of the Hoi An ancient town. Just a few minutes walk to the Yaly tailor shop, and about 10 minutes to the heart of the town. Also about 8 minutes walk to the Phuong Banh Mi shop. There is a walk path along the river that is accessible from the hotel. This offers a less crowded way into the town center. To go to the Danang, you'll need a car/driver/taxi.
Service: The services were professional and welcoming across the board. Check-in was great with the cold towel, drinks and snacks. A special thanks to Le, the food and beverage manager, who was wonderful. We talked to her during breakfast and she was a wonderful hostess. She was also at the restaurant during their various "happy hours".
Food: The breakfast buffet was nice, but I wish there were more Vietnamese food. Mostly western, but they do have a pho bar. The cafe sua da was very good.
Gym/Pool: They do not have a gym, but there is a nice pool. Not for laps, but more for lounging and dipping. It was clean and in good condition - I'm not sure about the previous complaint of it not being clean. After a day of walking around, it's a great place to relax before dinner.
Room: The room was nice.
