We spent 4 nights at the Mango Bay resort chilling out after over 3 weeks touring Vietnam, before moving on to Cambodia. Our only regret is that we didn't stay for longer. It is a quiet resort with friendly, helpful staff and an excellent restaurant overlooking the sea. Some of the meals were most imaginative with wonderful Asian/French flavours. The food is a bit expensive but delicious although there wasn't a vast choice of simple meals for a light lunchtime snack.
We stayed in a Plantation bungalow with a part sea view. It was private, spacious and airy and good to be away from a/c, fridges and television. The outside bathroom was well designed and the small number of creepy-crawlies we encountered didn't not worry us. The wall fans were noisy at night but we subsequently discovered that they could have been changed.
The two beaches were never crowded and swimming perfect in the calm seas we experienced during our visit.
It is well worth visiting the local town of Duong Dong with its picturesque harbour and colourful market.
