Actually the rooms are perfect. They are sleek and stylish and modern and both spacious and consummately efficient at using that space. You'll love the view from your bathtub and wish that your closet at home were as well-designed. You'll also enjoy the balcony with the big sofa ... and everything else as well.
The Beach House restaurant served the best steak I've had so far in Vietnam (a $70 rib eye ... fully worth the cost) and a ceasar salad as good as any in the world. I liked it so much that I ordered the same salad at two of the other restaurants at this resort but found each to be lacking (no anchovies at one, and too soggy at another). Resorts are not known for the quality of their food, but this place is an exception to that rule.
What isn't so perfect about this resort is the clientele (ourselves excluded). During our stay two corporate events took place. One of them consisted of a team building coach shouting "one-two-three" in Vietnamese over a loudspeaker on the beach repeatedly for a couple of hours. At some point during this activity the participants shamefully released about a hundred plastic bags to pollute an otherwise pristine beach (a rarity in Vietnam where the norm for beaches is something reminiscent of your local garbage dump). During the aforementioned steak dinner several Vietnamese kids ran around screaming and shrieking while their parents remained entirely oblivious. This is the normal Vietnamese parenting, but it shouldn't be the norm while consuming such an exceptional dinner. I think in each of these cases the management could and should intervene and maintain as high a standard for their clients as they do for themselves.
Breakfast was another complaint. At 25 USD/person, it isn't exactly cheap. We arrived after one of these large corporate groups who managed to pick everything clean. We lingered for a while but the staff seemed overwhelmed and did not manage to restock. So we ended up having a very expensive bowl of pho and bread and opted out of breakfast on the subsequent mornings.
Still, these were just irritants and the overwhelming excellence of this place warrants its five stars.
