We booked the hotel right before the Tet Holiday (Chinese New Year) which it turned out may have been the vest time of year. With the exception of one other couple I had noticed, we had the entire resort to ourselves. Despite the snow in my Philadelphia, the weather here was warm, the sky clear. The resort is located right on the beach where the water was a comfortable 80 degrees. The staff is very friendly. I booked one of the rooms that have a balcony. The extra dollars are worth the view and evening sea breezes. The location is rather secluded, not within walking distance to anything except beach. Fortunately, the food in the resort was excellent and reasonably priced, breakfast complimentary. a weight, room, game room and two pools with Jacuzzi along with miles of beach, provided ample recreation,. As we left, the day before Tet, the resort was quickly filling up. Our timing was perfect.
The town has many small shops with good bargains, but you will need a cab to get there. Taxis in Viet Nam are cheap, but the cost will start to accrue and is time consuming. There is a Buddhist temple within walking distance (about 1 mile) which was under construction and nearly completed that is worth seeing.
Be advised that anywhere you go in south Viet Nam, bring insect repellent, mosquitoes are small, barely visible and relentless in their appetite for those of us with sweet blood.
