A great hotel conveniently positioned to town and the beach. A good ten minute walk gets you right into town and the river’s edge. The push bikes work well and if you’re up for the ride to the beach at An Bang it is pretty flat and a good way to see the local area. Yes you have to pay a small fee to park your bike but it isn’t very much and it’s just the way it is. And yes you either pay for the sun loungers or eat in the restaurant they belong to, again that’s just the way it is. Don’t accept the offers from the two central restaurants it’s all about turn over. Food is okay but if you get there early I would recommend walking to the far left end (looking at the sea) get a lounger there, pay the extra and have an incredible lunch. The tuna steak was one of the best I’ve ever had.
We were a little disappointed in the festival of lanterns, like lots of things it has now become more of a daily occurrence for the tourist, not to the same level as the actual festival, which was a lot busier, but I felt it’s lost something. We hired a lady to take us down the river over sunset which was really romantic.
There have been mixed reviews of the girls working at the hotel, fact: they will talk forever, they try their hardest to remember your names, they don’t hassle you to talk if you don’t won’t to chat just be polite and walk on by they don’t mind.
We’d happily stay again.
