We stayed the 2nd week in November in a beach view bungalow (semi-detached). Very nice room, basic bathroom facilities but clean. We ate in the Sunset Bar on two occasions, which was good quality but not as good value for money as you get in other close-by places (night market or Ganesh). Alcoholic drinks are quite expensive also in the resort bars. Breakfast is quite good and covers most tastes (5.30am to 10.30am).
The resort is 10 minutes walk from the Night Market and it is well worth just walking down at about 7.30pm (the boats get in at 5.00pm and unload their catch), it is safe enough to dander down but if you are nervous take one of the hotel bikes, hire a motorbike (20,000VND - >£1) or hail a taxi from just outside the resort (31,500 VND - >£1.50).
There were a lot of Russians, a few French, a few Germans, a few English and a few Scandinavians. If you like to sun bathe on the beach, you will have to get up early to reserve the sun loungers with shade, the most are gone by 8am.
It is a quiet resort, so if you like a bit of buzz it is worth going to Rorys Amigos (taxi drive away) or the Drunk N' Monkey (5 minute walk). We enjoyed the resort, the staff were friendly, it was clean (didn't see a single rat or any traces) it is a great base from which to explore the island.
