We booked late for Tet and An Binh (as this hotel is now called) was the only hotel with two rooms for three nights. We now know why. The previous reviewer was spot-on.
As we were spending the holiday with local friends we figured that the lack of hotel amenities was no problem - we only needed a bed for the night and a bite of breakfast before we headed out, surely anywhere would suffice? Wrong!
The pick-up at the airport failed to materialise. When we arrived by taxi the check-in staff made no attempt to recognise or assist us. The room was clean enough, but lacked things like towels, soap and safe wiring. Actually my dad did have a towel in his room - it was left on the floor to mop up the leaking tap. The furniture throughout the hotel was a mix and match bric-a-brac sale collection - quite weird and generally awful. We headed out ASAP and enjoyed the nearby facilities -since there is no discernable possibility of food at An Binh the closeness of Oasis and Chez Carole was welcome. Bedtime brought further misery - to say the bed was hard would understate the point, sleeping was fitful as we each struggled for that elusive comfortable posiiton. In the early hours of the morning the karaoke stopped, and at sunrise we opened the curtain to the view of the brick wall.
The only saving grace was that An Binh is cheap - but not cheap enough to justify itself. Also without my smattering of Vietnamese i am unsure whether the simplest of tasks (like asking reception to call a cab) would have happened.
Given the choice on Phu Quoc (a favourite haunt of mine) where there really are other great choices - take them.
