Too much noice from the entertainment program for only Russian tourists. Nice room. Luckily we were at gardensite. Nice beach with SUP in the morning and kite in the afternoon. The food was not good. Luckily we didn't take the all inclusive.

We came here to go to the kite school, on recommendation from a friend. At the gate, the guard did not let us in, showing us pictures of a dozen westerners on a board: only those people and guests of the resort were allowed in -despite us wanting to pay to use the kite facilities on the beach. We used... More

The hotel has many different room styles and has two large pools with separate kids pools next to them. It could do with a medium investment to make it more attractive and appealing but i guess that's not their no1 priority. Staff speak little English, but I guess just sufficient.

Good place to have a short pleasant holiday! Breakfast and service is Ok. Rooms look quiet old. Visited Shell Spa - we enjoyed spa packages and massages. The only problem - far way from HoChiMin airport

A great location in mui ne with a nice beach. However,the first day experience was not good enough in terms of room offered versus the actual booked one. So literally need to shout on getting the right room from next day onwards. Food wise good option, although menu was available in room...staff understands more of russian than english

The grounds of the SeaLion are quite spacious and relaxing. The resort offers two pools and a lot of the standard resort amenities. The views are amazing; the private beach clean and lovely. Breakfast was average - a lot of variety but no exceptional or memorable dishes, and the coffee might have been the worst I've had in Vietnam. I... More

It was quite exactly the same as the review we read before we came here. We booked Deluxe Garden View room. The room was a little bit old. windows, doors look like its ages since they were taken care of. The bathroom is rather small, they put the curtain and it reduces the size of the shower area.
