My husband and I were introduced to Doc Let by our Easy Rider motorbike tour guides and we stumbled on this resort after our multi-day tour through Vietnam's highlands. The resort was impeccable and relaxing. The hotel staff all the way up to the hotel manager were delightful and provided excellent service. While I would not go to the resort for the food, it was also very good. While at the resort we were limited to the restaurants on the resort. Under US$100 is great value for this hotel and can not be matched. In regards to location, we liked that the hotel is removed from Nha Trang and the surroundings are gorgeous. While a bit more expensive compared to the rest of Vietnam, the spa was excellent and also fairly priced. The pictures I have seen of this place online really do not do it justice.

We hope to make it back one day...

Location out of nowhere. Almost every facility of the resort were closed or under construction including the noise of the construction work. Many of the room facilities are missing or broken. No Room Service because of the broken phone system. Several Internet outtages. Difficult manuall network setup needed for every Login. Blocked Homepage of the Resort from inside network. Over all 5 electrical power break downs. Dangerous Surrounding Area causes that we are not allowed to leave the resort after sunset. Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner only served in the open Bar/cafe with many Insects, no Air Con, and loud music. We got sick because of the unhygenic prepared food. Breakfast Buffet in the sun without cooling were recycled for several days. Got eczema after massage.

Our family (children, ages 10 & 6), loved this resort for: their clean beach (twice/day trash pickup), beautiful white sand, long extended beach, calm water, & water temp hovers around 78F. We booked the beach front bungalow: small room for the price, but convenience for the kids to get in/out of the beach. The shower, like most hotels in VN, leaked water excessively. we called housekeeping daily for extra towels to keep the floor dry. Housekeeping & room service are excellent at responding to our needs. The pool, however, is a bit murky but has a helpful lifeguard/bar staff close by. There is a small play area for the kids close to the pool.

Breakfast buffet was included; our friend's family traveled with a 2 year old toddler, was given a lot of headache every morning cuz at the time of their booking, their agents told them that the toddler would have free breakfast. however, at their first morning, they were kept waiting for 15 minutes while the front desk & restaurant were trying to sort out the mess. Does it hurt the restuarant to give the toddler free breakfast for just one day? I mean, how much would he eat for breakfast? Finally, the manager approved of the free-breakfast for the entire stay for the kid but every morning, they still have to find the approval order!

Back to to the breakfast buffet: VNese food was diluted; This means that it is not authentic or it just doesn't taste good. They have wonderful pastry selection, fruits, & cook to order eggs.

Dinner menu: we ordered many western dishes; All are pricey, hamburger (some bread filler in the meat, yuck), cost us $5 & tasted horrrible. Fries were a hit with my kids. Sphagetti & tomato sauce was ok but my kids loved it. Mostly over priced western food.

Checking in was easy.

Checking out was long; allow 30 minutes, why? Cuz they have to call housekeeping to check on what's missing in your room, how much snack & water you ate/drink, & if any item was missing during your stay. They charged us $5 for a towel that we used to wipe the sphagetti sauce & claimed that they were unable to take the stain out. They said that a small tea spoon was missing in our room. Unbelievable! I am sure that we eat from our room often & could have sent it back with the trays or the kids might have brought it to the restuarant. So they charged us another $6. Believe me, I am sure that I could purchase a hand towel at BenThanh market for less than $2. So learn from us, the hotel claim to be a 5star resort, but acted like a 2-star resort; they will try to milk every penny from you.

otherwise, we enjoyed the stay but the hotel staff did not leave a good impression on the last day.

I had a chance to visit White Sand beach early in August 2008. The whole resort looks okay, especially the spa, (they do invest a lot to make their guests impressed about the spa). But the beach is not very beautiful as I expected, where local people could ride their bikes in there, and a little bit not so private.
The food is okay at some dishes, not so impressive. They have quite good selection of wine, although the wine menu makes us confused sometimes.
