“A nice little place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights recently. It was a nice quiet change after the hustle and bustle of Hanoi. This resort needs a little updating particularly in the reception area and the bathroom (huge but needs a revamp). However, still a very pleasant stay. Room was very large and clean. Do ask for a room facing the river. Gorgeous views from your balcony. The breakfast area is outdoors on a lovely terrace overlooking the river. Pool area also pleasant. Do take a taxi ride (less than 5mins) to their own private beach (part of China beach). Only costs about $2 to get there and worth it. Lovely beach with crystal clear water and no waves, so great for kids. There are lounges and umbrellas for shade. Didn't eat meals in the hotel other than breakfast. Not worth it when Hoi An is just a short taxi ride away ($3) with heaps of options there. Mrs Ha across the road from resort does good and cheap laundry if you start running out of clean clothes. One tip: check bill carefully when checking out of hotel. Our bill was almost double due to drinks from another room being charged to us.

Room Tip: riverside room is a must

i have always maintained that the true test of any establishment is its staff,from the moment we arrived untill the time we departed the staff from the gardeners to front of house treated us like old friends,nothing was too much trouble,they arranged a mothers day cake for my wife on mothers day, befrended our children,everyone deserves to be spoilt now and then and the folk at vinh hung made our stay one to remember.thank you all for taking the time and making our stay a special memory.mike rebecca and family.

Room Tip: riverside view is a good option,sit and watch the world go by

We stayed in a delux riverside view room, the room was very spacious inc a/c which is a must and had a wonderful patio overlooking the river. The breakfast had a wide selection and the tropical surroundings of the hotel grounds and the choice if two swimming pools was a great relaxation away from the busy yet very nice town. One word of warning, if you are a very light sleeper then the riverside room may not be for you as the fishing boats start returning to port around 4am, if this is a problem choose one of the non riverside view rooms as they are not so close but you can still enjoy the river views as there are loads of chairs and sunbeds overlooking the river within the grounds. I have no hesitation in recommending this hotel, it is in a great location but when you are there you feel away from it all and all the staff are excellent.

If you're looking for resort facilities but don't want the hassle to getting to/from the old town, then this is a great option. There are better resorts further away from the old twon for sure, and although this place is beginning to look a little tired, it's an all-round good option. Good breakfast, nice pool, big rooms and restaurant and bar on the river. In just five minitues walk you're right in the middle of the old town so best of both worlds.

Perfect location. Good (and reasonably priced) pick up service from/to Da Nang airport. Comfortable rooms, serviced daily with clean towels (sometimes small things like face flannels forgotten but quickly provided on request). Free Wifi and free stand alone PCs (no irons though despite advertising). Special "market day" tasting of local foods every afternoon was a a delight (not that we went every day!) Minor negatives. Balcony chairs outside riverside rooms might look trendy but they are impossible to sit and relax in. A notice board or circular with events and other advice would have been handy. We knew in advance about monthly lunar festival in Hoi An but only learnt on TV about international fireworks competition in Da Nang. Further, banks were closed for 4 days during our stay (around 1 May) - reception never mentioned this on check-in (a real problem for some). Otherwise, staff friendly and helpful (pleased to learn that new Swiss manager is working to improve their English language abilities)

Room Tip: Ask for a riverside room. Those on right hand side of resort are also beside the smaller of two swi...

We stayed with two other couples and found the resort to have fantastic staff and a good value for money. We stayed for 6 nights, rooms are nice, pool adequate also large grounds so plenty of space compared with places right in town. Still only a quick walk into town or take the free water taxi available every morning into town. Breakfast was very good with a wide selection. Although it was only 5 minutes into town you are just out of the noise and busy area. Every afternoon the hotel offered a local market near the bar where you could taste the local dishes for free, fantastic, freshly made Pho, Spring rolls, Vietnamese pancakes, and other dishes.
Staff were really great, they kindly turned up at the pool with a nice birthday present for Steve's birthday and we had not told them it was his birthday.

This was our second trip to Hoi An, and Vinh Hung is an excellent resort with a location that almost can't be beaten. The pick up service is good value when compared to alternatives and would definitely recommend that guests avail themselves to this. The kids loved the pool and the drinks and food available around the pool were good value and better priced than most similar resorts. The Breakfasts were excellent quality and the staff were very friendly and fun, all the staff our challenged to learn a new English word each day and we had a lot of fun with them around this process. I would say the manager of this hotel has done an excellent job with the training of the staff. We had two second level rooms down the far end of the resort and we were very happy with the rooms themselves and had 3 great nights sleep.

Room Tip: we were happy with our room and couldn't see the need for a river view room
