“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We loved our stay at the Betel Garden. The staff are extremely welcoming and friendly. Always willing to accomodate you. The place has a pool, which was a great way for our kids to unwind after a day out. The hotel staff will make arrangements for any kind of trip you need, so things were very easy. The place is about a 10 minute bike ride from town, so it is easy to bike or even walk to. Very quiet. We had a room with a queen bed and two twins. Did not feel cramped.Would highly recommend for people with kids.

We stayed here for four nights as part of our honeymoon and could not have picked a better place. Everything from organizing our stay, to our pick up to checking in was easy. Add to that a beautiful bunch of flowers presented as well as a flower arrangement on the bed of our beautiful villa. Ms vang and Dong were outstanding and we felt so welcomed. The meal we shared with other travelers was lots of fun but there was more fun to be had at Christmas! Unlike a lot of the major hotels who make u stay for their gala dinner and you have to pay we were invited to have dinner with the family and friends. A great night filled with good food, drinks, Vietnamese karaoke and party games! We only wished we didn't have to leave so early the next day so we could have stayed up! It is a little out of town but the bikes are easy to use and it's a very pleasant walk! Would definitely return, it's been our favorite stay!

We stayed 3 nights at Betel Gardens. We had organised a pickup which went smoothly given that our flight changed 3 times. Seems to be pretty common in Vietnam. Check in was good. We were offered chilled passionfruit juice which was welcome in the heat. Breakfast hours etc were explained clearly and we were asked what we had planned and given appropriate advice.

Rooms are spacious with outdoor settings in the midst of the beautiful lush gardens which we used quite extensively after a tough few hours shopping.

Breakfast choice was good and as it included in the rate it is a real bonus.

As were staying 3 nights, we were invited to the communal guest dinner on our second evening. This was a great opportunity to meet people from all sorts of different countries and swap shopping/travel/restaurant tips. We enjoyed this evening and had a lot of laughs.

I had a manicure for the princely sum of $3. Can't complain about that.

The only quibble would be the firmness read hardness of the mattress although to be fair, my husband didn't mind. I found it a real issue though and I do normally like a firm mattress.

All in all highly recommended.

Lovely large bungalows, comfortable with everything you need for a good stay. Awesome pool, and if you're swimming at night the toads will serenade you! A bit far from town but taxi fares are reasonable and you can also bike or tuk tuk it back and forth.

We spent a few days at the Betel Garden Homestay and found it an absolute delight. We had a large comfortable room, in a very traditional style, set in an idyllic garden. On the first night we were invited to a party - which turned out to be dinner for all the guests and staff- lovely food, a great opportunity to talk to other travellers and the staff. Throughout our stay the staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The location is excellent- a short and easy walk from town but in a totally peaceful setting. It was really enjoyable to spend time at the homestead, the grounds are so lovely. Fresh fruit is provided daily, and the restaurant offers very good food. We didn't use the pool though it looked very inviting. I would recommend this homestay to anyone travelling in this part of Vietnam

We have just spent 15 wonderful days at the Betel Garden Homestay and our stay here was one of the best experiences we have had in Asia.The location is just a short walk to town or a short bike ride to the beach and the accommodation is set in beautiful gardens with big comfortable rooms. Fresh local fruit is delivered daily to the room and the beds offered a good nights sleep after visiting the sights of this wonderful town. The free dinners were a delight and gave the opportunity to eat beautifully prepared local food and the opportunity to talk to with the other guests and swap travel experiences. A big thank you to our host Dong for being so attentive and making us feel special and part of the family. We have visited Hoian 3 times before since 2009 but now that we have found this little peice of paradise we would never stay anywhere else, the Betel Garden Homestay as our favourite place in Hoian and we cant wait to come back.

After reading so many other positive reviews, we were not disappointed. Travelling as a family with 2 young boys in tow, we could not have asked for a more comfortable, caring and beautiful place to stay. The location, set in amongst a village, allows you to hear, see and smell the daily life of the local people. The connecting villas enabled our children to have their own bathroom, tv etc, giving the family the space needed, they could also be in their rooms whilst we enjoyed a long meal at the restaurant and we new they were safe. The boys loved being able to walk around and talk and play with the staff, talk to the birds. The pool is beautiful, the food is terrific and if you are lucky enough to be invited to a family dinner they are a great opportunity to enjoy other guests, staff and the food.

My thanks goes to the wonderful staff, particularly Trin and Tuan (hope spelling is correct), who cared for my family and ensured we felt happy, relaxed and welcome.

The walk or ride into town is great fun (and not far at all to either the old town or the beach), make the most out of the free bycles, they were a higlight of our stay, riding around old town, in the rain with our kids on the back (whilst eating pork buns), fantastic.

We loved the style and design of the rooms, the windows, doors, furniture etc. Fresh fruit and tea is provided daily...
The breakfast menu and options were excellent, great choice, non restrictive menu and plenty to eat.

Enjoy the banana flower salad.. it is a winner.

This is a place we will stay on our return trip.

Room Tip: The villas are the way to go.
