We stayed at the Furama Danang for five days in April 2012 and this time we stayed for a week in August 2013. The resort has changed in some ways but not in others.
Firstly, the staff are amazing - professional and polite, nothing is too much trouble.
The beach is gorgeous.
The views from the balcony over the ocean in the junior suites are amazing.
The rooms are tired. Very tired. It's time to refurb people. Last year I thought the suites were nice - this year not so much and the bathrooms are dark and outdated.
F & B - the prices charged here are ridiculous. It is way too expensive and frankly much better food can be found outside for a tenth of the cost. Whilst I appreciate the overheads associated with delivering F&B to the customer, there is no way that it can be appropriate to charge for an (average) club sandwich the same as a dinner for two with drinks in Hoi An. That's just ludicrous.
We had a very ordinary (and expensive) buffet seafood dinner in the restaurant on our first night in the hotel...and then caught a taxi to Danang and Hoi An for dinner for the rest of our stay. Yes. That bad. How do you run out of dessert? Then substitute what you have run out with really awful dry cake. This is not five star and is so very different to what we remember from last year which is disappointing.
The variety and quality of breakfast was also much better last year. Plus it is now a circus - no idea what's going on there.
As I mentioned at the start - Things have definitely changed at Furama Danang (and not for the better) and some things need to change.
I am really mixed about whether I would stay here again for the third time - I like the beach but I am no longer loving the hotel so....I don't think so.
