We recently had a holiday break in The Ocean Villas and were mostly happy with our choice. We have a 4-month old baby, and a 13 year old, and found that staying in The Villas was a good choice for families with children.
The villas are modern, luxurious and well designed; with manicured gardens and a small wading pool attached to each villa. The kitchen and home appliances are brand new and they work just fine for entertaining guests. The whole area is kept very clean, and there is daily housekeeping free of charge.
There are common areas with a bigger pool, a spa and a restaurant, as well as a tennis court. And there is also free kayaks and body boards available from the lifeguard, but you have to check them out very early in the morning to avoid disappointment.
Unfortunately all is not perfect, and we encountered two big issues:
-As others have mentioned, the restaurant quality is average but the prices they charge are extremely expensive: at least twice higher than in a luxurious French restaurant in Hoi An. The same applies to drinks in the bar, and even soft drinks in the fridge in the villa itself. I recommend buying your own groceries and drinks elsewhere in Da Nang, and use the supplied kitchen.
At least all breakfasts were included with the accommodation, but you should try to arrive early in the morning, as the restaurant area is not too big and it will get crowded and uncomfortable very soon.
-The location is not handy to either Da Nang or Hoi An, but is too close to both a highway and a flight path. We were woken up several times by military jets, helicopters or both. The Villas offer a shuttle bus (twice daily) to Hoi An, but the timings are very inconvenient. Fortunately, taxis can be called and are not too expensive.
Considering the price we paid for accommodation here, it was a good deal, but we will stay elsewhere in Hoi An the next time we visit.
