This is a nice hotel -- it's about what you'd expect in the way of furnishings and appointments at a five star hotel. The staff was all very friendly. Pool area was a little run-down looking and very over-crowded. Also watch out if you're there on the weekend as the pool area will be inevitably overtaken by a set up for an elaborate wedding in the afternoon. The hotel has a nice selection of restaurants as well. We went to both the Saigon restaurant (where the food was good and the staff was friendly) and the outdoor Moroccan-style restaurant which had a very nice ambiance. My gripe, though, is with service. We happened to order ice cream for room service one night and it arrived (after three calls) one hour later almost totally melted. We called and complained and they agreed to comp it, so we weren't that bugged about it in the end. We have an infant and they brought up a portable crib with a couple of diapers and baby wipes and powder which was a nice touch (and we weren't charged extra for it). Also, go a great deal on the room booking through a tour company so as far as value is concerned, it was amazing.
