We initially booked for a 7 night stay. Our room was spacious with good internet access & a nice balcony, roomy bathroom also with great shower pressure, a nice fruit basket left for us also. All the staff were lovely. There is a very good shuttle service into town and back at no cost.
Unfortunately that's the end of the positives. We read here they are undergoing refurbishing but we saw no sign of this & staff didn't seem to understand what I was asking about when we requested a refurbished room. Our bathroom had splashes from previous guests toothpaste or soap droplets on the splash back & mirror from our day of arrival, but frankly is so old it's hard to make it appear really clean. The towels are small & thin. There is a constant unpleasant smell coming we presume from the river (not the resorts fault I know) but at times it's really strong, this permeates through into the room and makes sitting on the balcony unpleasant. An oil burner in the room may have helped here. Laying around the pool is difficult as there is only 5 chairs (they are doubles), there are loungers along the river which I used but here the smell was more over-powering here so didn't stay long.
The food at breakfast was adequate but the tables were never wiped down with anything other than a dry serviette, we never sat at a table that wasn't covered in ring marks & food stains at any time. The worst thing for us though was the noise, we were kept awake till near midnight with children playing, crying etc on the lawn under our room and slamming doors at all hours, starting at 5am. There was no need to slam the doors they shut easily, but it was constantly happening every 5 min or so, enough to wake us every morning. This resort is definitely not a four star resort. 3 star yes, having said that we really only paid a 3 star rate to be honest. It may suit families that are more used to noise but unfortunately it didn't suit us. We only stayed 4 of the 7 nights originally booked, but the staff were very understanding of our early departure which we thank them for. We were even offered us a fee lunch due to our issues, we declined this as it's not the staff's fault the guests were so noisy but we appreciated the gesture.

Really liked this hotel. We stayed 4 nights and it fared very well against the other hotels of similar price which we stayed in during our trip.

Main pros: (1) excellent location with a free shuttle bus into Hoi An town; (2) spacious rooms; (3) very friendly/helpful staff; (4) nice river views at hotel and nice private beach a few mins' walk away.

A few things to be aware of though: (1) there were a lot of kids during our stay - perhaps it was the time of year. Noise travels quite far in the hotel so it was often a little noisy; (2) the bathrooms were a little dated; (3) there could do with being a few more sunbeds at the hotel and the beach; (4) the breakfast isn't the best we've had in Vietnam.

Overall, though, really liked this place and would recommend it highly for the money.

I had stayed at River beach for 5 days with my family. We choose the river view with very large balcony. The hotel located really fantastic, about 2 minutes Cua Dai beach which provides some great views at the end of day.

The room was spacious and clean, the buffet breakfast was very good. The staff was very kind and helpful.

I am really happy when staying at here.

I stayed there for a week with my 10 year old son and husband. We had a junior suite which was modern, spacious and clean. Breakfast is excellent with a huge range of loc a l and western food. Great swimming pool and gardens and amazing location - right on the river and 2 mins from the beach. It's about 5 km from Hoi an. The hotel has a shuttle bus and free bicycles. A taxi costs about 80000 dong. That's about €3. You really have the best of both worlds. You can also cycle to an bang beach in 10 mins. The staff are the real assets of this hotel. Thank you for a wonderful week.

Room Tip: 207 is great

After booking a family suite online we were put in their 'presidential suite'. This was huge, however was very dark and noisy. The restaurant below started playing loud music at 6am and we could hear the chairs scraping from people at breakfast which woke us up. After talking to the manager they moved us to a ground floor river view suite with adjoining rooms- away from the restaurant. The view was really lovely. However the room had a very damp smell and one of the walls was bubbling from water damage. When we got home all our things smelt of damp. One of the bathrooms did not have hot water and the mini fridge did not work. There was also building works next door to the hotel near our room which started at 5.30am.

We were unlucky enough to be staying during an event the hotel was hosting. This to us just sounded like very bad karaoke which kept my two babies awake for hours. Huge speakers pumped out terrible music- it was loud enough to make our beds vibrate. Unfortunately we were not told about this so did not have an opportunity to book alternative accommodation. It is unacceptable that a hotel agreed to host an event at night like this at the other paying guests expense.

Over all not a great experience. The hotel rooms are not just tired but are falling apart. Housekeeping do a really good job as the place is clean but some money needs to be spent to make the rooms habitable and hygienic. The pools filter system needs repair as you could se skin floating in it.

The food was really nice when we ate at the restaurant and all the staff were really friendly. The problems with this hotel come from higher up not those working on site.
