My wife and I stayed in the 1000 stars hut, which was quite basic but spacious and clean. Also there is wireless internet everywhere, which is great. Don't expect any other luxuries apart from quiet garden and beautiful beach. As we ate lunch and dinner at fixed times with the other guests we quickly befriended a lot of nice and interesting people, which is one of the best things about travelling for us, also the Vietnames food was very tasty. However, don't expect any gourmandises. The owner Sylvio and his family are very laid back and friendly although on first appearance Syllvio might seem a bit excentric, or perhaps he is, so what, deal with it...
I can of course understand the negative reviews, for above reason and also because if you come to a place like this with wrong expectations of room service, individual treatment, TV in room, or expecting the surroundings to be some secret jungle, you are bound to be disappointed. There is a regular Vietnames fishing village just down the beach, with fish smell, fishermen, little concrete houses, shrimp breeding huts etc. Also it was clear not all people appreciated the common meals and the not so business client oriented approach of the owner one would expect at a regular hotel.
Anyways, we loved it, and if you are open to leave your comfort zone and experience a great few days at the beach (some people stayed longer, like Tobi, who was staying his 45th night or so when we left) then this is the place to be.
Thanks Sylvio and family, we wish you the best of success also in the future!
