“Pleasant hotel - priced right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Clean well appointed rooms. Bed was a little on the hard side and pillows were okay. Could have been better. Stayed one night. Buffet breakfast was good. Service was good. I wish that I had more time to swim in the pool as it was lovely. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Wifi was troublesome as the signal was poor.

There is no beach due to erosion but here is one very close by. Very big and enjoyable pool with a gret sea view. On closer inspection of the hotel it is not finnished particularly well. It does not seem to be built to last. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was bad. shuttle bus was very handy. Nice big and clean room. Overall it is not what you expect from a 5 star.

From the moment we were welcomed at reception until we left (we stayed for 5 nights) the staff, location, room and facilities were wonderful. We stayed in the beachside suite (2 adults & teenage daughter) and it was very, very big. Right on the beach. The pool area was gorgeous. The weather was perfect and the resort was almost deserted so no waiting for anything. We were told it usually rains in October but there was not a cloud in sight. Arrived around 7:30 pm and so decided to eat at the resort. Food and service were great however very pricey when you could eat in Hoi Ann at 1/4 of the price. Hotel massage facility great and we also did a guided cycle tour for around 2.5 hours in some of the outskirts of the town. It was organised through the hotel and one of the staff took us. The bikes were older style however did the trick. No helmets so we felt like naughty school kids riding around (helmets compulsory in Australia). Did the last great food tour of Hoi Ann which was amazing. Could have stayed much longer. Loved this part of Vietnam.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

The hotel is great, food is good, and you have the biggest pool ( well over a hundred meters) that you want to enjoy. HOwever, the internet was a little bit spotty, and intermittent, but otherwise, I would recommend this!

Came on business. Booked the package which included lunch and free pick up ans drop off at Danang Airport. First thing is this is one of the older 5 star hotels on Cua Dai beach so naturally the hotel looks abit worn but still the room was spacious and clean.

Pick up and drop off was handled perfectly and there is a wide variety of food for breakfast. The only bone to pick was the issue about the lunch which was included in the package. The package clearly stated lunch for 2 although I was the only one staying in my room. I brought a business guest for lunch and the people in the restaurant really embarrassed me by insisting the lunch included is only for 1. In the end the meal was included but damage already done.

Other than that experience our stay was satisfactory.

Room Tip: Try requesting a room not so near the road and closer to the beach.

Good hotel to stay in Hpi An. Breakfast has varied offerings. Ambience in the resort is wonderful. Hotel offer complimentary wifi but signal is very weak and intermittent in the rooms. Customer service of breakfast service personnel could be improved though. Guests would want to be greeted with cheerfulness in the morning instead of with a sour and tired looking attitude.

Stayed for 8 nights over Xmas. Avoided all the Xmas carry-on and had a pleasant time. Pool was great, one of the longest you will ever find, but don't come expecting a golden sands beach. There is no beach: the water laps the edge of the resort and after a big storm part of the resort wall was washed away. It was teeming with helpful staff, the room service food was excellent and the breakfast and restaurant food were first-class. The hot water was a bit paltry and the air-con a little noisy but otherwise very pleasant. The resort shuttle bus to town was a good service as was the airport transfer. They gave us a late check-out and were accommodating when we cut our stay by a day. Would happily stay there again but some of the facilities could do with an upgrade over the next few years.
