This place is quite hard to find. Best way to find Song Xanh is look for Safari bar along the main road. If you're coming from the town, it's around 300 meters on your right. You will see a narrow dirt road. There are signs but Song Xanh is quite hard to spot because their sign is not very striking. But if you see Lam Ha, you're on the right street. Go in the narrow rough road then before you reach the end, you will see Song Xanh on the left.
So we finally found the place and met Tiep who was the receptionist. He showed us the rooms and we liked it so decided to rent the place. We stayed there for two months! It was cheap and the nicest place you can get for its price. We have seen some places in Phu Quoc for twice the price but wasn't even close to how nice the rooms are in Song Xanh.
The staff were really nice. Our cleaning lady, the manager and all the other people in the area were friendly. They accommodated us with all our simple needs. They gave us an extra table, a stand fan and they even lent us their grill. We felt really at home. They would even give us fruits/vegetables from their trees/plants. Mangoes were in season during our stay so we had regular supply.
They have bicycles that you can use for free. The motorbike can be rented hourly for VND20k/hour (around 1USD) if you just need to go to the market. You can also leave your important stuff at the reception (with Tiep) if you're going out.
Phu Quoc is very laid back and so are the people. Only thing, you have to have high tolerance for insects. You'll be fine inside the mosquito nets but the insect situation is something not everybody could handle.
I highly recommend Song Xanh RESORT!!
PS. There's easy access to cheap beer in this resort and they allow you to "pay later"
Also, the store across the main street offers snacks, toiletries and other basic stuff. We highly recommend trying their local rum "Chanh Rum". It's cheap (less than a dollar) and pretty good for its price. I miss Phu Quoc....
