We spent four nights at Chen Sea Resort at the end of our trip to Vietnam and absolutely loved it! We stayed in a beach front villa which was fantastic. The villa looked right out onto the water and you could either lie on the beach lounges or sit on the deck or even sit in a hanging chair from a tree. There was free wifi in the villas as well. During the day staff would come by and offer drinks and also sometimes bring orange scented moist towels to cool off. Each day we had the buffet breakfast which was included and was generous and tasty. The deck outside at the restaurant has a bit of an issue with ants both on the deck and on some tables which I was surprised at as it is fumigated often.
We had lunch at the restaurant a couple of times and the food was nice. We also went to a little dining hut called Sakura close by. We took the free push bikes and rode up to the main road from Chen Sea, turned left onto the main road then the first left. Down the end of that road is Sakura where we had a lovely cheap lunch. Back at Chen Sea we also took out the complimentary kayaks for a paddle. There are also other watersports available.
We had drinks at the bar during happy hour each night including one night for the managers' drinks. There were some very comfy purple beanbag chairs that were out out for us to watch the sunset. We chose not to eat dinner at the restaurant as there were other cheaper options such as the night market where it was less than $10 each way in a taxi. The food at the night market was amazing and a whole lobster was $20.
The highlight of our stay at Chen Sea was the shack next door called Thuy House (pronounced twee) we had dinner there twice and the food is fresh and amazing. I had the best spring rolls I have ever had there. The drinks were also cheap and they were good company to be around. We also hired a scooter from Thuy House for $7.50 for 24 hours where we rode down to Sao beach and had lunch.
If we go back to Phu Quoc we will definitely stay at Chen Sea again and dine at the night markets and Thuy House!
