Choosing a place to stay is difficult at the best of times, especially in a far away place! However Trip Advisor does help and we choose this location for our 6 night stay in Mui Ne on the back of previous reviews. To be honest we were not disappointed but do feel we could have done better!
The location is excellent. The property is on a fairly narrow plot that runs all the way from the road to the beach. It is also well located at the better end of the beach and great for bars and restaurants etc. So a great location.
The rooms on the other hand were a bit of a weak point. Of good sizes and clean with air-con, safe, TV, fridge and a reasonable amount of storage (but lacking in shelves and drawers) and free WiFi (throughout the property). However the beds were really, REALLY firm (waking up with bad backs) and the bathroom a little basic. Some days we had no water pressure at all and the hot water was non existent. We did mention this to the staff and they quickly sorted this. However it seemed we were sharing the hot water with the neighbouring bungalow and so either got in the shower before them or had to wait!
The pool area is a bit on the small side but clean and the water a great temperature.
The breakfast, which was included in our room rate, was excellent, loads of choice but finished at 9am. The restaurant served food and drinks all day and offered a good choice at very reasonable prices. However the standard was not amazing but better than most.
The staff were lovely and super helpful. The odd language difficulty (to be expected I suppose). But we were made to feel really welcome and we given a lovely thank you cocktail one evening which was a nice touch.
The real plus for this place are the gardens. They have created such a peaceful green and colourful oasis. Beautifully tended and kept immaculate. Birdsong and the gurgling of the stream that runs through the whole garden, really make you feel you have escaped the often chaotic scenes on the road or the fairly constant wind on the beach.
Be warned - Mui Ne is a Mecca for kite surfers, so if you are into this you will love it. From November through to April the winds are constant and strong, whipping up the surf and blowing the sand. So no sunbathing on the beach! But great sport watching the crazy flyers in action and the waves make for a fun time in the surf. Another thing - the Russians love this place and make up the largest (by far) group - enough said!
There are great restaurants to be found in the area and some decent shops. But there is not a great deal to do here other than kite surf. You can hire cycles or mopeds to explore, which is fun if you don't mind a few hair-raising moments with the traffic.
Would we go back? Yes.
Would we stay at the same place? To be honest no. Nothing they did wrong but there are more comfortable places for about the same price. However we have wonderful memories of our time in Mui Ne and it is well worth a visit.
