This was our second visit to Hoi An and we decided to stay somewhere that was more than a hotel. This place is on the island with a river setting and just a short walk from the old town.
The hotel seems to be very popular as, although we booked some weeks before leaving home, there was very limited availability and we could only stay for 4 days.
The spacious room had a sitting area with a sofa and chairs on the balcony.
The bed was large and very comfortable .The bathroom toiletries were disappointing and were probably not four star hotel quality.
The hotel has two pools with lovely gardens where the 'street stall food market' is served between 4 and 5 pm daily. This is a great idea which allows guests to sample typical street food and sit with a drink as the day draws to a close. Watching the sunset from the garden is delightful.
The restaurant serves all meals. We had breakfast there each day and were impressed with the food and the staff who kept the buffet replenished quickly and efficiently. We'd been in Vietnam for 2 weeks and this was the first place to serve cereals at breakfast!
Each day we walked into the old town for shopping, sight seeing and lunch as the resort is about 5 minutes walk across the island to the bridge over the inlet to the old town.
We took advantage of the evening sunset cruise and the shuttle boat into the market area of the old town. These are both complimentary for guests as is the afternoon food market.
Although the hotel was full, the numerous staff were not flustered at any request and always greeted us with a smile.
My only grouch would be with some guests who put a towel or other article on poolside loungers after breakfast, go away and return anything up to an hour later and expect to find the lounger unoccupied. I think the management could discourage this selfish, unsocial and rude behaviour with appropriate signage.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would happily return.
