An idyllic retreat in a special location. Properties were scattered throughout the resort so it did not feel cluttered. the staff were superb. Always friendly, smiling and keen to help and assist either practically or with advice. We stayed in a single room, one of five connected together, looking out onto the ocean less than 100 metres away. Being an eco-resort it does not have air conditioning but does have large open windows and fans. The downside is that the fans made, for me, too much noise and disturbed my sleep, however, such is the nature of the place that it was always possible to catch up on sleep sometime else! The humidity and heat probably contributed to a stomach upset which persisted throughout my stay, however staff were brilliant in advising drinking ginger tea (it helped) and in finding me medication when necessary. (I did ask for extra toilet rolls and drew a picture to help in the interpretation, however something got lost in the translation as a man with a plunger arrived on the doorstep!). The breakfasts were excellent - never seen so much fruit, bread, and local food as well as more international, continental products. The restaurants were equally excellent. The only problem we encountered was an order at the beach bar that did not arrive one evening so we shared the food that did! My wife used the spa treatment facilities and found these very good. Overall this is a lovely resort for peace and quiet, calmness and as a base for exploring Phu Quoc. We were able to hire a car and driver/guide to take us to points of interest.
