“Great stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2010

The hardest bed I have ever slept in. The best sleep I had in Vietnam value for money 1, location 1. Vietnam is the worst country you can visit because even after 6 months from your visit you want to return mire than ever. I would go back tomorrow and spend a lot longer than 2 weeks. 11 of us rode from Saigon to hoi an visit on www. Web.me.com/stephengraham1. Send correspondence to stephengraham1@bigpond.com

There are many places to choose in Mui Ne but found this resort to be good pricing, got an ocean view room for $50 USD, including breakfast. After the hustle and bustle of Saigon, the peacefulness of Mui Ne is much appreciated and this resort has a ood pool and good quality breakfast. Overall, in a very expensive part of Vietnam, this resort is good value for money. Highly Recommended

I loved the Tien Dat hotel! I'm a return customer -- having visited about 4 times. I found the staff to be very friendly, the rooms very comfortable, and the location just great. I found the breakfast buffet delicious. Lots of fresh fruit, juice, vietnamese dishes, eggs/omlet bar, breads, cereal, etc... I loved being able to walk right off my own patio, to the pool, or just just a few steps beyond, to the palapa's and lounge chairs at the beach. The fresh sea air was so refreshing during the hot times of year. They keep the beach very clean. Tien Dat is a great place to set out for a long walk down the beach. Great place to relax! Also if you are into wind surfing and kite boarding, Mui Ne is your destination.

Not worth the money. Either spend less and get a value room or spend an extra 15$ and go to one of the resorts. 

The positive was a large room an ok bathroom. The hotel seemed family friendly, Aka kids where screaming and running around the pool from 7am until 9pm. 

The rat that ran past out table and towards the kitchen area was our biggest concern. The staff didn't seem to bothered about this. The food was poor compared to the price charged.

The staff are generally unhelpful and just ignore you. We couldn't go on a customer PC as the bar staff was on it downloading pirated software.  

The location is ok with but there is no beach when the tide comes in and there us not nearly enough sun loungers for the number of guests. The sea is so rough you couldn't risk getting in at high tide as you would be washed into the concrete steps.

This hotel was good and was well worth the money. The hotel is divided in two buildings, one at the beach and the other one on the other side of the road faced to the hills. The hotel is placed in the middle of Mui Ne, close to shops and restaurants. We stayed in a seaside deluxe room on the second floor. The room was spacious and even if it was faced to the road we wasn’t disturbed by the traffic. We didn’t have any problems with our bed, it was comfortable enough. But if you only want to stay in your room and watch TV there will be a problem, the TV reception is really bad. We loved the 2 big pools and the seaside beds that had a great view over the spectacular ocean. Tien Dat don’t have any beach, only a stair directly to the water. But it didn’t matter for us because most of the times it was too windy and too big waves to swim in the ocean. If you still want some beach you can just walk a few meters and you will have it. Mui Ne is the kite surfers paradise so there are really windy here. If you don’t like to go up early and reserve a sun bed you can take it easy. After breakfast you go over the street to the other pool, every time we were there we only shared it with a few people. We found the staff being very polite but a little bit reserved.

There were a few things that weren’t quite to our expectations. Even if it was a breakfast buffet with bacon, omelets and fresh fruits it still felt a little bit poor. The round trip tour we took through the hotel didn’t have any English speaking driver and we also didn’t get any paper with information. It would have been fun to know some more about the things and places we looked at. And some of the places we looked at were ridiculous; The Dragon fruit farm is only someone’s backyard along the road.

If you go to Saigon, do the most shopping there because it is more expensive in Mui Ne. The sleeping buses are perfect to travel between Saigon and Mui ne, it cost around 7-9$ and will take around 4-5 hours.

We booked a beach front deluxe room, which like the previous reviewer lead directly to the pool, which was fantastic. The staff at check-in seemed to be the most bitter and lacked any customer service skills which is a contrast to the other hotels we stayed at in Vietnam. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom, however the mould around the sink and shower was a little off putting. Limited amount of toilet paper available?!?! We had asked for additional pillows but was told only 1 could be supplied even though both of us had requested them, which leads me to the bed! The bed was like sleeping on a concrete slab with a sheet and thin duvet! I would have to say that this was the worst bed I have ever experienced during any of our numerous hotel stays. The wait staff and cleaning staff are friendly and put the the reception staff to shame. The breakfast included in our room rate was OK, Orange juice is served as TANG (powered orange juice) limited fresh fruit available, and the toaster was the worst. Coffee was a poor standard in fact the worst I had while in Vietnam, and considering the vietnam people love their coffee! The Location of Tien Dat Resort (Blue Waves Resort) was great, dead smack bang in the middle of Mui Ne, walking distance to most restaurants and shops. When eating at some of the restaurants opposite the resort you need to clearly spell out what you want or mean, as they have very limited english - but their heart is there and offer great service. We booked through Tien Dat resort our bus service back to HCMC, and asked a receipt and was told they couldn't offer one? I asked how do we know we are booked and the shocking customer service of the receptionist said we would just need to trust her! (something that is not normal in Vietnam). Although the hotel offers free wifi internet - it would have to be the worst in Vietnam! Most restaurants offer free WiFi and is 100 times better than Tien Dat. We would not recommend this hotel, as there are plenty of other options with similar rates and that had better offerings.
