We stayed at Xin Chao Hotel during the low season and we found it to be a very relaxing hotel with warm, friendly staff and excellent facilities.
Our room was next to the pool which was ideal as every morning we would simply spring out of bed, grab a sun lounger and stay there until lunch! The hotel also has a restaurant and when we ordered lunch at reception the staff brought it out to us at the poolside.
The pool is quite small but this wasn't an issue when we stayed as there was never more than 2 people in at a time although I would assume it is a lot busier during peak season. However, the good thing is that to get to the beach you just need to cross the road and go down some stairs and you can sunbathe or swim there if you want a change of scene.
We found the hotel to be well placed on the strip as you're walking distance to some great restaurants and bars. While we were there we found Mui Ne to be a combination of backpackers (like us) and families which gives the resort a nice vibe. It wasn't too loud and the hotel was quiet at night.
The owner was around the hotel for most of our stay and was happy to answer questions, although his staff are very competent and happy to help too. The room was comfortable with A/C and a large clean bathroom. A safe would have been a nice extra but we did feel our belongings were safe in the room anyway. The bed was quite hard but I've found this to be quite common while travelling in Vietnam. There is a spa which had reduced low-season rates but we didn't use it.
We were only meant to be staying for 2 nights but after the chaos of Saigon we were so relaxed at Xin Chao that we extended our stay to 3 nights. I'd recommend this hotel to families and backpackers.
