I simply loved Betel Garden Homestay.
Right from check in, where we were sat down with amazing fresh passionfruit juice & "Tuan" (the main guy at reception - talk about service with a smile! He really is an exceptional man, such an asset to this place!) went over everything we needed to know about the place.
We had a room with 2 Queen sized beds for myself, my husband and our two daughters, 13 & 20 years. It was such a lovely room. Very comfortable beds & we had massages as well as manicures/pedicures (very cheap) in re room which were great.
When I booked I was a little upset that the villas were all booked out but the room we had was perfect...I really don't think there's any need to go for a villa, unless you're a big group of singles or you particularly need a seperate sitting area?
The pool was lovely. & very clean. The restaurant had great brekky and the other meals we ate there were all good too.
A highlight for us were the pushbikes you can ride into town for free. They were a heap of fun for us...we certainly got a lot of use out of them.
The ONLY downside was this: we had $50 go missing from our room one day. It was definitely there before we left to go downtown and not there when we arrived back after they had cleaned the room....but I don't feel that I can give them a negative review for this as it could have just been a dishonest cleaner...plus, I didn't have it in the safe as they recommend. We brought this up with them & they "asked all the cleaners"...but of course nothing was found...
We loved the fact that we were a km or two out of town too - the ride into town was really lovely and Betel was so peaceful, being just that little bit away from everyone.
Another lovely staff member was "Hien" (spelling?).
