“Not bad, not special”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

You can find no many restaurants and swimming facilities on Bai Sao beach because the beach is still wild (not touched much by locals).

My Lan, if I remember, is 1 of some 3 restaurants on this beach. You know, for a sevice providers, if it lacks customers, the stability of service will go down. Unfortunately, the same condition happens to My Lan restaurant.

But it's still good to enjoy some juice there. 2 hours there then get back to Duong Dong town or proceed to your next sightseeing sites.

“Vietnamese tourists' place”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

many Vietnamese tourists visit this place. There were noisy, dirty and so crowded. I think the food is cheaper than the other place but i've never tried because the moment me & my parent step into it & saw there's a less crowded & cleaner place nearby, we quickly get out of this.

“Worst in asia”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

I paid for 4 nights in advance through Agoda but could only stay 1. It was disgusting. It was filthy, deadfully slothful service, horrible food, expensively delivered. The room smelled horrible and the biting ants and flies in my room bothered me all night.
Dogs in the kitchen, no decent service, filthy premises, awful location, they would not allow me a refund for the 3 prepaid days but offered me a laughable 10percent discount on my next stay after I complained. I will never book at this hotel as long as I live and I will never use Agoda again. They washed their hands of any responsibility for not delivering what their advertising promised. It was about $320 for 4 nights. Complete ripoff.

“Over priced, full of MSG, bad service. Recklessly polluting one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. PIGS”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

I am unlucky enough to have actually been staying at this poorly run establishment, and had really no other option but to consume the foul food served by its rude and lazy staff. Was honestly the worst experience i have had in vietnam. I was supposed to stay for 4 nights but shortened it to 2. Atrocious service have never been treated so rudely as a customer in my life. The beach is slowly being polluted by the hoards of day tourists and irresponsible staff who merely sweep rubbish to the sides of my lans section of the beach. Quite heartbreaking to see such disgusting disregard for the only thing noteworthy about the place. If you do come to bai Sao for a day trip hurry before my lans rubbish tip grows and head next door to gecko jacks where it is less crowded, better food and staff.

“The worst service that we had in Vietnam”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

The food was great as always here in Vietnam... The price is a little bit bigger than the restaurants in ding dong, but it's in front of the beach and have nothing near, so it's fear... Our problem was in the end when we where paying... The girl who was attending us came with the check and while we were looking for our wallet she add 3 things more (we were 4 people), when we asked what is she adding she show us the hand wipers that she bought to us in the beginning! We said to her that we're not paying for that, that it's free. Actually we had used only one and have some more from other places in our bag and offer her these that we had... She was very rude giving back our hand wipers and our change. She ruined our experience there...
