“Good resort with its up and down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this resort for 6 nights and experience 3 different rooms. 1st night on river view villa (what we booked for), 2nd and 3rd nights on seaside (because they had a group coming offered for us to move to a cheaper room) and the last three nights in a suite (for our trouble).
Overall, the resort is in desperate need of a face lift. The rooms are looking tired and old (replacing the floor tiles to something modern will lift the spirit of the room), cubicle shower in river view villa and suite. Seaside villa is cheaper but comes with standing shower.
Be careful with the shower: where the hot water come out of the wall, becareful not to touch it, extremely hot and can burn! We made a mistake of burning each other twice.
Breakfast is adequate with variety different days. Daily latern show in front of the restaurant at 7:30 pm. We had a set dinner on our anniversary but it was average, we went to Cao Cao - Grasshopper for late night snack instead. Must try that place if u coming to Hoi An.
The staff at the resort is friendly with minimal English except reception staff. Make sure if a certain male is making you feel uncomfortable with how he looks at you (if you are a female), let management know. That certain individual needs to treat ladies with respect.
The pool are great with a pool bar on one of them. Management should really invest the money to train staff on entertaining and lift the spirit at the pool to help encourage more people to drink at the pool bar.
We heard that the restaurant and one pool is being demolish next month to rebuild. That is a good idea. Air cond in the outdoor restaurant would be good too. And another pool bar here too.
Private beach is definitely a bonus. We can see the builders have thought of erosion hence building the resort a street away from the beach and in between the river.

The river view is definitely the best.

The pricing if definitely not on the pricey side if you have done your shopping right.
We would definitely come back here again on out future trip and would recommend the resort to our holiday friends!!

Awesome buffet breakfast, friendly service, close to the beach with the back porch overlooking the river and water palms. Lovely place, quiet surroundings. 15 min shuttle bus ride into town. 2 pools, great size bedrooms, with the ground floor rooms having mosquito nets. The rooms were well priced as we booked on agoda.

They dont seem to replenish the complimentary water bottles each day, but other than that everything was just lovely. A basket of fruit is in the room with the tea and coffe facilities. They also do a 'turn down' service and leave a funny bedtime story scroll for you to read. The beach is just across the road, and is clean and not over crowded.

A lovely spot to relax just out of town, close enough but far enough.

We'll stay there longer next time.

Room Tip: Room 109 is right next to the kitchen, so you could hear the water pump which wasn't pleasant ea...

Stayed here with my children adjoining room/villas sea view which is across from the road can be somewhat noisy but really a busy road so not a problem for us.
To get to the beach you need to cross the road (food and drink available)
Room very well appointed and a good size with nice aircon with a large bed comfortable
Two good size pools but not cooled so pretty warm most of the year.
Had no problems so enjoyable time reception even organised transport as I had to return to HCM for the day and delivered and picked me up at 930pm without difficulty (somewhat unusual for VN at good price)
Good breakfast good choice both western and Asian also good atmosphere
Weather was very wet but still good place to hang out
As there are Dozens of restaurants in Hoi An did not eat dinner here but lunch was great
Older style resort many other choice but this one good value in my opinion

Room Tip: Better View and Quiter on riverside villas Also do have standard rooms but why bother?

Loved Hoi An Beach Resort, stayed in a riverview room, had great views of the fishing boats on the river. Beach was very nice and clean with plenty of sun beds. Room was quite large and we had a fruit basket and fresh flowers when we arrived. The beds are incredibly hard and it took quite a while to get used to them. Breakfast was excellent, with the best egg cooker ever, he cooked everything with chopsticks. Tuesday and Thursday nights, there is floating lantern show on the river at about 7pm. Very pretty. Shuttle into Hoi An town was excellent, left every couple of hours with return trips back every few hours as well. Lots of nice restaurants nearby. Would stay here again if we return.

My girlfriend and I staying here for 4 nights at the end of our Vietnam trip and thought the stay was relaxing and enjoyable.

It was quite expensive but the room to get was the river view lodge/villa as the sea view was more of the road between the hotel and sea.

The private beach was great and not many people on it. It was great weather and very relaxing.

The staff are kind and helpful and managed to correct a mistake of paying the taxi driver cash as well as being charges by the hotel but their English is quite limited compared to some other hotels we stayed in in vietnam.

Quite an expensive place to stay and generally more people staying there in their middle ages however if you want to treat yourselves then this is a great place to stay for all travellers alike.

The gym there is not great and when asked for a fan as the air con wasn't great they said there wasnt one (even though we saw one unused in the lobby) there was a nice member of staff who did bring in cold bottles of water to help out.

Over all, good hotel, a little on the pricey side and I would suggest heading to one of the nearby street restaurants for lunch and into the main town for dinner.

This resort is in a beautiful setting between the river and beach. Very well laid out with blocks of standard rooms at the far ends of the property and groups of 4 seaview or riverview rooms spanned in between.

There are two modest size pools to cater for rooms on each side of the reception area and enough lounges to cater for everyone. Bar service is available and pool boy in attendance at all times.

A walk across the road to a private beach is very pleasant although the weather was not good enough in February with daily winds and high seas making a visit here quite unpleasant.

Breakfast was buffet and very good with a large selection to chose from. The restaurant is placed beside the river so it's very relaxing watching the activity on the water whilst having breakfast.

I really enjoyed my stay here in a seaview room although coconut palms outside the room blocked any view of the sea. A good sized balcony with two chairs and table was a good place to relax although the chairs could have been more comfortable. They are slat timber deck chairs and very hard.

My only criticism of the resort was that as it's ageing maintenance is lacking. Cracking of tiles around the pool are left unattended to and the resort is just looking a little tired. Reception staff could have been a little more friendly too.

The resort is well located just 4 or 5 km from the town and a hotel shuttle bus runs to and from town. Taxis are also available and inexpensive costing $4 each way.

Room Tip: Riverview rooms are the best as seaview ones don't have much view due to beach vegetation and co...

We enjoyed staying here! Good sized rooms (river view villa) with terrific balcony overlooking both pool and river, with palm trees thrown in. River views were both relaxing and interesting with various craft making their way to and fro. The resort is sandwiched between the beach and the river which run parallel to each other. Both are close and both are charming. Nice beach for swimming and lazing about. Great staff and very keen to please, fabulous breakfasts, candles floating on the river to delight guests at the evening meal. Food at dinner (and the wine list) were fairly ordinary, and this is the hotel's only shortcoming, but there are heaps of interesting little restaurants nearby costing next to nothing but with flavours to die for. Many shuttles into Hoi An but its a good walk or cheap by taxi, so a convenient place to stay and have the best of both worlds. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: Definitely choose river view - ocean view rooms face the road.
