There are definitely better bargains on Phu Quoc than Cassia (we paid $85 per night), but we extended our stay from 4 to 6 days because we liked this resort so much. This is not a place to stay if you're looking for a five star, pampered experience. But if you have a sense of adventure and want a quiet place where you can just relax, this place is ideal. The staff are incredibly friendly and the rooms are spartan, but comfortable (all rooms have fridges, showers, etc.). The food at Cassia isn't the greatest, but breakfast is complimentary, other meals are cheap and there are a variety of other good restaurants just a short walk down the beach (we recommend Le Deauville).
Best thing we did was to rent scooters and tour the island. You can get set up for a half day rental for about $5. But I'd skip the squid fishing tour. We spoke to others who said it really wasn't worth it.
The beach is beautiful, but be aware that the fishing boats still throw some of their garbage overboard, so you may see the odd package floating in the water. But don't let that dissuade you, it's a lovely island.
