We stayed here on the 3 day 2 night package, the hotel picked us up in a private car and also transferred us onto Chau Doc at the end of our stay.
We chose to stay at Mekong Lodge because we wanted to get out of the city and maybe see a bit of the real delta, we didn't want to end up staying in Can Tho as this just looked like another big city. The lodge is just outside Cai Be and only really accessible by boat which gives it a sense of isolation although I wouldn't describe it as quiet as there is always noise from the river.
The rooms are clean but basic, our room was near the restaurant with a plunge pool. We loved the outdoor bathtub but felt that the room could benefit from a few pieces of furniture if only to be able to put your sunglasses and camera on.
The food was excellent, it was nice not to have to choose because it encouraged me to try things I might not normally order and it was all very tasty and fresh.
We only have 2 criticisms
1. It might be better to go to the floating market earlier when it is busier then pop back for breakfast before continuing onto the dry market.
2. There were a number of occasions when there was very loud "trance" music coming from behind the room, this actually woke me up at 5am on one occasion.
Lastly they should consider an optional trip to Can Tho floating market?
Overall tho' we loved our stay and especially loved being able to dip into our plunge pool!
