We stayed 5 nights in the beach front bungalow and were really happy with the location and the room. The view and 10 steps to the beach was amazing.
The breakfast is terrible and we ended up eating at La Veranda which is left up the beach 5 minutes or at Elana's Cafe. This we found annoying by the end as breakfast for 6 days we didn't account for adds up.
The front of house staff are also extremely unhelpful if it is something that they don't deal with on an everyday basis and use the excuse that there is not a manger on site. This we found out as being true after having to speak to a manager on the phone who was in HCMC and couldn't help anyway. Customer obviously service wasn't their thing.
We didn't risk trying dinner here, even though it seems to have one of the best beach dining experiences and was tempting. We ate at Rory's (good if you need a break from straight Vietnamese) & La Veranda (yummy but a bit more pricey).
We think if we stayed at Phu Quoc again we wouldn't book 5 nights in one place again. There seemed to be really great places further up north that look great if you want something a little more secluded but in saying that it was fantastic at night to walk to a different restaurant or drinking spot.
We hired a scooter for three days and explored the island - we found that Sao beach that most places will recommend you to go for the most beautiful beach was just OK. Dirty, small and busy but still nice sand and water. The best beaches we found were up north from long beach - Ganh Dau Beach and Bai Dai Beach.
The internet and power seems to go off regularly which I think is an island problem not just the hotel.
