Having read guide book reviews I was expecting a lot from this hotel but for some reason was a little disappointed. We were in one of the island pavilions. The rooms were great and as we found in other Vietnamese hotels the service was excellent. It is out of town but taxis are cheap. The sunset bar looks fabulous. Whether it was the fog, I’m not sure, but the design of the hotel was a little severe. My other concern was the large number of mosquitoes in the wardrobe. Staff very quickly came and gave them a good spray and on request did so on the second night but I was surprised that a hotel built over a lake didn’t do this as standard. On a positive note it had excellent food and the toiletries were very good.
