The resort is very big and it always seems empty even when there is a full house. Its very expensive and the rooms show a lot of wear. The grounds are beautiful and the beach is nice and quiet. Hard to swim here because of the steep drop off and the waves crashing into you make it hard to wade and walk in the water. The service and the staff is 2nd to none. I think you would be more happier at the Asia Paradise Hotel. 2 blocks from the beach and has roof top swimming pool for a fraction of the price! The Sailing Club located on the beach is not far. That is where you will meet tourist like yourself and some of the ladies of the night for dancing and drinking ect. Nha Trangs best night life place. Hope this helps. Just be sure when you leave the Sailing Club in the evening you do not walk back to your hotel. Have a taxi take you for about $1USD There are many bandits and pick-pocketers that will be on you like fly on *hit. Trust me on this!

Hi Viet212,

I cannot agree more with the advice that goldpond has given----the Ana Mandara was once the " GEM" of Nha Trang----over the last few years the variety and standard of amenity available has increased dramatically ----much better value, livelier resorts----Nha Trang years ago ( when the Ana Mandara was the pearl),was largely dependent for its primary income from fishing---its now a bustling tourist venue ( and as a consequence it has acquired some of the less savoury characteristics)---Its still a great place to go, and as Ken said the old Sailing Club is still a popular landmark in the town!

I think you can a lot better than this aging lady ---and you could die of boredom if you do not stay somewhere else if you are looking for a bit of action!

Hello,

Goldpond's advice is right on and don't accept rides (or anything else) from anyone in that area late at night.

During the day, try La Louisianne Café a little farther South from the Sailoing Club on the beach. Good beer made on the premises and a little less expensive.

Hi, an alternative for Ana Mandara and VinPearl resort in Nha Trang is Sunrise resort. The resort sit next to Yasaka and Nha Trang beach is right in its door step. Didnt stay there so got no comment, sorry. But relative stayed there and they said it was OK, though couldnt compared to VinPearl ( they stayed at both)
