“Friendly, relaxing and a great view.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

We stayed 3 nights at Mui Ne Hills and really enjoyed our time there.
Not only was it an extremely relaxing, laid back atmosphere with very helpful and friendly staff, but as it's located on a hill you have wonderful elevation and views across the coconut palms to the sea. This made for very pleasant lounging by the pool while Greg whipped us up a delicious fruit smoothie. Also because of it's elevated aspect, you get a great sea breeze at Mui Ne that keeps you nice and cool. The staff are all great - Erik the owner is very friendly and helpful, as were Greg (barman) and Fung (hotel staff)... they really make you feel like your part of a little extended family. We had a fun night out with them on Friday night at the local bar DJ Station which was hilarious and a lot of fun.
If you want somewhere quiet, boutique & small-ish (no huge sterile resort here), with a great view and a place where you can easily meet and chat with other travelers then this is the place.
For dinner - if you like seafood, definitely go to the open air, live seafood restaurants beyond the mega resort strip (opposite direction to Phan Thiet). So from Mui Ne Hills, go down the hill to the main street and turn left onto the main drag. Go straight for 5-10mins by scooter (25mins walking) and as the strip of resorts finish there is a little strip of open air seafood restaurants right next to the crashing waves. We ate beautiful tamarind crab, garlic clams, tasty squid. All washed down with some chilled Dalat red wine. Do it!... you won't find good food anywhere else.

Room Tip: Definitely try and book a room at Mui Ne Hills 1 if possible as this is the original part of the hot...

We just came back after a week at Mui Ne Hills and time really flied by during our stay, we could have stayed on forever!
We have been in many many hotels in Vietnam and around the world but we have never enjoyed this kind of hospitality.
Erik, Greg, Phuong and the rest of the staff really make you feel at home and they are sincere and honest with their approach. On several occasions they helped us solve problems that had nothing to do with our stay at their hotel, repairing our motorbike free of charge was one of them but there were many more.
The view from the main swimming pool is amazing and you can easily spend the whole day there if you want.
All the staff was very caring and our kids felt very special due to all the extra attention and friendliness.
Keep in mind that the hotel is a short (100-120 meters) uphill walk (last part only) from the main street but this walk is certainly not a problem if you consider what awaits you. You will be in the central part of Mui Ne with the best restaurants and night life very close to you (but no noise from any pub to bother you).
I wish we could keep this spot as our secret but that would be impossible so here goes our testimony :-)

Room Tip: Some rooms don't have aircon but you don't need it and there is a ceiling fan just in case...

This B&B is more of a boutique style resort. We were lucky to get a free upgrade to MNH1 Junior Suite.

Not an issue to arrive late in the wee hours as the security guard was notified in advance of our arrival. Erik offered to get someone to receive us on the main street if we have concern walking up the hill ourselves.

Breakfast is at the pool deck area with sea view - a great way to start the day and bask in the sunny weather. After breakfast, Erik or staff would share with you some info about Mui Ne, their offerings and help to answer any questions you might have.

During settlement, we did not realise we were charged for the room upgrade. The staff realised it subsequently and immediately return us the excess payment =)

Wish I could have stayed longer at this relaxing place with nice people.

I was upgraded to a superior room on arrival. Room was large and nicely decorated. Friendly, helpful staff. Good breakfast and nice view across the bay from restaurant area. Hotel not far from restaurants and the beach, both can easily reached on foot in a few minutes. I enjoyed my time at Mui Ne Hills Hotel and will definitely go back there when I'll be in the area again!

What a fantastic place to stay. Quiet, all the amenities that anyone would require, great staff who are obliging and helpful in every way. A bit of a walk up the road, but the views from the Bar deck are quite unique. Thanks Erik, a wonderful peaful holiday was had, we have recommended to all our friends. We WILL be back!

I stayed in Muine hills for 2 weeks this October. A dream to stay in, beautiful location, wonderful friendly, attentive and lovely staff / owners. The rooms are big, breezy and spotlessly clean. I was traveling by myself and found Muine Hills to be the perfect combination of peace and tranquility up on the hillside but with a laid back sociable vibe that made you feel like you we're amongst friends.
The bikes are a great way to get around and the scooters are good if you can handle Vietnamese traffic!
Breakfast was great, delicious home made bread and yummy coffees made up part of the simple menu and they set you up for the day nicely, and to be able to enjoy this over looking the ocean with a gentle breeze makes everything taste good :) oh and they have some yummy wines which was proving almost impossible to find anywhere else in Muine!
Cannot say enough positive things about Muine Hills, I would recommend to anyone without a moments hesitation!

We had a great time at Mui Ne Hills when we stayed in October. Upon arrival we were upgraded to MNH1 which was a bonus. The pool area and deck is really lovely. Most of the time during the day (it was low season) we were the only ones at the pool so it felt like we were staying in someone's private villa. In fact, it was so lovely by the pool that we only visited the beach once during our whole stay. 
We thought the breakfast was really good. The bread and coffee in particular were delicious. 
The owners were very friendly and helpful, their stories of life in Vietnam were very interesting and informative. 
There were only two negatives to our stay. It became obvious over the course of our stay that the owners are extremely sociable and love a party. Which was very apparent on our last night when we were woken at 3am from the loud talking of a mini party which had formed on their private balcony. It kept us awake for 2 hours. You expect noise and disturbance from other guests, but I've never stayed anywhere where the owners themselves cause the disturbance! It wasn't a big deal and only happened the one night but still a bit inconsiderate for their guests below in rooms with thatched roofs (through which the noise carries easily). 
The only other negative is the price of the beer up at the guesthouse. It's the only item on the menu which is unusually expensive (twice the price of most of the restaurants down on the main road). Had it been more reasonable we'd have happily stayed up their drinking most evenings.

Overall though I think this is a great guesthouse and would certainly recommend it.
