“Change of owner”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011

We've booked this ahead and stayed 5 days. We're a sporty couple who wanted to chill and enjoy Vietnam. Muy Ne is nice but this place wasn't what we expected. Very unfriendly owners trying to sell you something all the time. Breakfast very basic. We booked a special room (1 big bed, beachfront, furthest from bar) but never got there. We were promised 'tomorrow' every day. Now we could sleep between 03:00 am & 7:00 am due to music blasting or families at beach screaming. The house is somewhat clean but smells old. Airco was working fine. This place is in the middle of tourist strip. Anyway, use earplugs 24/7 & good luck.

Room Tip: Don't stay in beach front bungalows, untill 3:00 am you'll been blown out of your bed becaus...

First of all I loved Mui Ne and I really recommend other travellers to stay here for at least a few days. It is a beautiful small beach town with plenty to see and home of a great stretch of sand if you feel like doing nothing more then having a lie out in the sun.

The Hotel itself was great, I've seen some not so good reviews on this site regarding it but myself I was very impressed. It is extremely affodable accomodation, the bed is big and soft, the air con was steady pumping and the atmosphere was excellent. Maybe the place is a little old but that hardly dampens the experience. The garden is nice and the pool lovely. The staff friendly and very open to communication.

I think the real icing on the cake is the location. Its roughly in the centre of town so getting around is easy, but the beach out front is great and at all times of the day there's plenty of action to take in. Next door is the Wax Bar which is definitely 1 of the top 3 bars in Mui Ne. Cheap drinks, pool table and after 9 all out dance club. Oh and a beach bonfire at night. Someone did mention if you do have kids it might be a little loud which is probably a fair call but if you don't mind getting amongst it you'll be in a state of nirvana.

To rap it up I loved Wind Champ and havent a bad word to say about it, oh did I mention the restaurant cooks up a great meal.

Room Tip: Save money by not opting for the included breakfast and just purchase your brekky if you feel the ne...

Don't bother staying here.

It is not a nice resort, both the beach and the rooms are dirty, there is no way you can keep mosquitoes and cock roaches out of the room (holes in the screens and walls!). They have 2 monkeys in a very small cage outside the rooms, which is upsetting.

The bar next door pumps out music at full volume till 3am, so you can feel the base and sleep is impossible! The restaurant attached is terrible. The pool is the only thing which is as nice as the pictures.

Our biggest complaint was that our passports were kept at front desk and left unattended in an unlocked drawer...very worrying!

Oh and don't bother with the tours - a rip off. You can make your own way there a lot cheaper, perhaps hire a moped as the roads are pretty good around the area.

This resort is somewhere between budget and midrange, it probably was midrange one day but hasnt been very well maintained....I suppose it is okay value compared to a lot at Mui Ne. It was very quiet when we were there so I would have thought the prices would have been cheaper - $25 for a double room.

The room was okayish, tv wouldnt tune in though. But it was a great location on the beach, has a few sunbeds for guests and a small pool for kids. The main downside was that we got woken up each night by the awful music from the nextdoor bar which played until about 3-4am and our bungalow was at the opposite side of the bar (you cannot get any further away). Also, when we checked out we paid in dong and they used a v high exchange rate compared to anywhere else in Vietnam.

Service in the restaurant was v slow, was a lot of girls around but they were too busy nattering to each other. I can see why they had NO diners on an evening, probably due to strange/ sparse menu and lack of anyone to serve them!


Warning - Do not use the travel agency next door for bus tickets or laundry. We got our laundry done there (as it was cheaper than hotel), but they conveniently didnt have any scales in the shop and said it weighed 8kg at laundrette - we quickly checked at hotel before we paid and it was only 4kg! She wasnt happy she got caught out! Plus the bus we got to Saigon was very poor quality - no air con and overpacked. Stick with Sinh Cafe buses!

My 19 yr old and I stayed 3 nights. It is located beach side deep in the accommodation strip. My daughter suggested calling the facilities ‘rustic’. The tariff is in the lower/mid range at $40 a twin share. There is a beach bar/club attached that pumps out remixes until 3 or 4 am. There is a pool (smallish) and it is set in a quite nice garden. There was no TV reception and room generally had seen much better days. But apart from all this my daughter had a good time because there was a wind surfing competition on and she got to hang out with all those fit, tanned young men. Free wifi at the bar (but you must order something). Oh and we tried to eat at the Korean restaurant attached to the hotel but never got serviced. This is typical of my experience in Mui Ne.

We were welcomed by a particularly grouchy receptionist, then a security guard showed us our bungalow. As we walked into the bungalow there was sewerage-like smell, the resort as well as our room was lit with fluorescent light & when I poked my head in the bathroom for an inspection I met a cockroach that didn't even bother to scuttle away. I suppose it was in its territory and I was invading.

The decors was dark, tacky - the light tube was broken at one end - but no problem it was held to the base by some kind of tape. There was sloppy maintenance job throughout the little room & the bathroom, like the taps in the sink don't match & there were various chips in the sink & the bathtub. The standard of care and management is so bad it's actually quite amusing.

At night there's a beach bar right next to the bungalow pumping out really, really bad thumping music. The music went on for the whole night. It's mid night right now & I can't sleep from the thumping music, hence this review.

Everywhere else was fully booked so moving hotel was not an option, so I stayed put & turned it into a game of: "how bad can a beach bungalow get?" to amuse myself.

The verdict? Avoid! Unless you're super curious or want an experience that gets you to appreciate most other hotel rooms.

Looking for a cheap place we stayed here. Sink was leaking, but they were not able to fix ity even tough it would have been a small thing to do...
beach front bungalow was old, rotten and not very inviting. Not worth the 22$!
Loud music from the Wax bar til 4am. Might be ok for party people.
Pool is nice and clean. Loundry service is a rip off, you pay half the price just across the street.
After 1 night we moved to much nicer Tien Dat Hotel and got a standard room for 30$. def. worth the money!
