After leaving the madness of Saigon we were hoping to find a little haven for some r&r in Mui Ne and when we stumbled upon this brand new hotel we really hit the jackpot!!
We have just spent four days here and wish we could stay longer as it's been wonderful.
We were initially booked into another resort (The Sunshine Resort) in Mui Ne which is very close to here, but after a few unhappy days there had a wander around and found this one - see separate review for more info on issues at our initial hotel.
From the road this place doesn't look like much, but once you make it past reception (which for us took some persuading as they don't let just anyone wander in here off the street, which is good as it proves they are security consious) you'll be pleased with what you see.
The best way I can think to describe the layout of the hotel is like a luxury motel. The rooms are in blocks down each side of the pool with their windows/doors opening out onto the central pool/jacuzzi area. We did wonder if we'd like this as you don't have a balcony/your own outside private area, but to be honest the areas to relax around the hotel itself are so nice it's not been a problem. Even in the rain the rooms are great as you can watch the rain hit the pool and beach with lots of space to relax inside in.
The rooms themselves are huge with great beds (most have a double and single in them), a TV with French and English channels, aircon, minibar, good storage and a nicely laid out bathroom. The only downside is the shower, which has lashings of hot water but not much pressure, but it's good enough as you can take the showerhead off the wall to hold it very close to you if needs be.
Breakfast , free SPEEDY wi-fi, tax etc... is included in the price (we paid $30 per night), and it's all been brilliant.
The hotel has it's own bit of beach which is really clean with nice shaded areas. And you can merrily sit on the beach or by the pool and watch the kite-surfers stun you with their tricks. The sea is a tad rough but most people seemed happy swimming in it and the water was really clean.
The location is great as there are lots of restaurants nearby - our favourite was "Hoang Vu" to find it turn right out of the hotel walk a short while and you'll see all the fairy lights and outside BBQ area, believe me it does great BBQ food with fresh seafood. And you can walk along the beach in either direction to rent/learn to surf/windsurf or kiteboard. My husband had kite-surfing lessons at Jibe's and they were briliant too.
All in all this is a fabulous place which we'd come back too, the people here are really friendly and you don't get hassled even when you're lying on the beach!!
It's a small hotel but HUGE in welcome and facilites.
