Stayed for one night at the hotel in early May 2008.
The hotel in my view does not qualify in any way for a four-star rating. The location could have provided for a nice experience, being close to the beach, however the hotel seems to be very run-down and not up to any standards required even for Vietnamese hotels with this rating. The staff was not service minded in any way, and did not seem to have much knowledge of pre-bookings. The hallway outside the room had stone floors, which meant that it was quite loud from the large number of people moving along the hall. There was a strange smell both in the hallway and in the room, which I believe to be insect poison, and for good reason. The balcony had a nice view over the beach, but since it was littered with cochroaches, you didn't feel like staying there much. This seemed to be a problem for the entire hotel, and especially at night, there would be dozens and dozens of dead cochroaches lying around at the main entrance (besides the restaurant) and the staff didn't seem to bother about at least removing the dead ones until the next morning. Honest to say, I chose to have breakfast at another location. The quality and service at the pool area was completely inadequate, and most people would not spend more than 10 minutes there. I am usually not picky, but this hotel is 15 years behind its time, and was a huge disappointment based on the four-star rating and the price.
