“Don't believe what's on line..........”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2010

We were told that we could not fly onto the island without a booking.....this is not true........there were plenty of places available. These were very disappointing
accommodations. This "resort" is on a busy dusty street, several blocks from beach. There is no restaurant, no bar, terrible breakfast, no service, no phone, up a steep hill, rooms seedy and overpriced. Guests who had not prepaid left after one night. Not a resort or a hotel. It's a scam.........don't  do it unless you are desperate and then only for 1 night.......you can find great rooms right on the beach for half the price..........

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2010

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.

The information you find about this hotel on the net (which is n ot a lot) is not correct. There is no view, there is no good restaurant etc. The view we had from our Bungalows was a brick wall surrounded by empty cans and some other carbage. Indeed, the overall carbage and lack of any VIEW is a MAJOR LACK AT THIS HOTEL.

We had booked for several nights but moved after one night. Also other families did the same! The prize for a bungalow is about USD 25. Nearby you can find excellent other options on the beach for 40 USD e.g Sao Bien, Mai House, Tropicana.

The one positive experience we had was the friendly staff. The rooms are OK. Although the linnen was not changed when we arrived (check it during daylight).

My recommendation is to stay here one night at the maximum.

  • Liked — friendly staff
  • Disliked — view, rubbish etc
