I think 4-5 rating for this place is a bit over the top - too many people rating an ok place where nothing went wrong as being outstanding!
Staff were friendly, but weren't all that great at proactively advising about things - e.g. they didn't tell us about where/when breakfast was, until we asked on the 2nd day. When we got to the breakfast room (in the "Grand Mango Hotel" 2 doors down), it appeared to be just a buffet and the two staff working there didn't say anything... it wasn't until the third day that we asked about whether anything else was available, as we saw other people eating an omelette.
The aircon filter in the room was filthy and causing the aircon to make a lot of noise (I cleaned it myself to make it quiet).
Be careful about which room you get - booking through Agoda we got a rear-facing one with a tiny little window high up, so the room was quite dark.
The location quality depends what you're after. The beach is just across the road, there is an Aussie bar a couple of doors down, an expensive seafood restaurant across the road, and a cheaper restaurant next door to that. That's it though - if you want any more action, you need to get a cab or ride a scooter.
Speaking about scooters, that and the laundry are overpriced here. They charged us 200,000dong per day for an old automatic scooter (which they replaced on the 2nd day - it didn't feel safe - didn't want to ride in a straight line!), price other places seemed to be half that. Their laundry is charged like top-end hotels, on a per item basis, which would make for a VERY expensive load of washing. Everywhere else in Vietnam charges $1/kilo.
