“Best place in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2011

Stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks while working in Rach Gia. By far the best place to stay in town. Obviously the nicest and tallest building in town. The staff were friendly, they do their best to help, but their English is not great. Regardless, good enough to get you whatever you need. They arranged domestic flights for me, ferry to the near island as well. The restraunt onsite is nice if you want something to eat and dont wanna go out. The staff at the restaurant is again, super friendly and helpful. Some of them speak English. They just opened a deck bar which is very nice at night with star views and breeze. The betting, sheets, towels were western standards, and clean. They have good laundry service and fast free WiFi. Overall, it's the best hotel I have stayed in Vietnam during my 3weeks of travel.

Breakfast is outright inedible. It is better to go out and get food in town.
Service: Reception will say yes and nod while not knowing what you are talking about. Air con broke, maintenance said they fixed it but nothing was done. We had to fight to switch rooms.
Rooms: Small and they wouldn't give us one double bed; instead 2 twins.

I stayed at Sea Light Hotel mid October 2011. On the positive, management was responsive and very congenial to all my concerns. However, the hotel was having significant maintenance issues. It appeared to me they have construction shortcomings as the first two rooms I was offered had a musty smell. There were ceiling tiles removed at several locations in the hotel. At the time it was not raining, but it appeared there were or had been significant roof leakages. Also, I had one set of laundry done. The morning I departed I put the laundry package that was in my room into my backpack without opening. When I arrived at my next location I discovered I was short one shirt. I had my Vietnamese friend call and ask if they could forward to the neighboring town where I was. The response was no. IMHO the fault was primarily theirs, even tho I should have opened my laundry package and checked.

The staff is excellent and the amenities good. Even though it is a newer building it seems like so many places, quality control during construction was not an issue. The room is nice and the furnishings tasteful. The room I had on the 15th floor had a 37 " lcd tv, a great aircon unit, and a softer, very large bed. The problem lies in that the ceiling was wet, (as were probably the walls under the wall paper) csausing mold growth and a musty smell. It is not acceptible for a 4 star hotel to smell like a 0 star. Hopefully this issue can be adressed though I think major renovations on a new buildingmight be needed. Perhaps try another floor.

The beds are the most comfortable in Rach Gia. I've stayed a lot of hotels here and this is the best most professional one. Have a good look as different rooms and you will find one you like. The staff is great from the restaurant to the bell hops. Very friendly and happy people. It's more expensive than most hotels in the area but for around 50 usd you get a great room. Leave the shower water on a long time and you will get hot water. It's a very tall building so the view is great. What else can I say. If you go here on business then this is the best hotel to stay at in the area.

This is the tallest with 19 levels and the most beautiful building in Rach Gia. I stayed there 3 nights with my wife in a honey moon room and we loved it. They offer good free breakfast daily, as well as gym, swimming pool, internet wifi and a Game room. Staff are very friendly. Room are very beautiful and clean. The prices are reasonable and I suggest you book rooms directly with them; it would be cheaper:
