    Location 4.74 /10

    The hotel is located in Phan Thiet, 124 mi from Saigon (a 5 hour drive) and 155 mi from Nha Trang (only a 4 hour drive, as the road is in a good state!). The city centre is only a couple of minutes away from the hotel.

    Accommodation 6.70 /10

    The establishment's 92 rooms (40 old ones and 52 new) come in different categories. The standard ones are devoid of any charm and most are located too close to the road. The interior decorating is fairly basic, the lighting is insufficient and the furniture, walls and floor are a little shabby. There are two single beds that can be joined to form the semblance of a double bed. All the rooms include a safe, air conditioning, a kettle, a hair dryer, a mini bar, a phone, and a TV set. The unusual presence of a fan should be noted. The bathrooms are small and dark and include a shower. The rooms in the superior category offer a roofed outdoor shower; which allow more light into the bathrooms and add a natural touch to the setting in the accommodation units. Finally, the "deluxe" rooms seem to have earned their name. Spacious, modern, and pleasant, they have a large bathroom that includes a shower and tub concealed behind a glass wall that opens onto the bedroom. Perfect for watching TV and taking a bath... if you can do without the sound! All the rooms have a balcony with two armchairs and a small table. As for the view, the rooms that look out onto the sea are obviously more enjoyable.

    Overview 7.95 /10

    The hotel is located by the sea and occupies several buildings spread around a lush garden with numerous fish ponds. The section of the hotel housing the one storey buildings was built in 2005, whereas the large imposing building with its 52 rooms on 3 storeys (served by a lift) opened in 2007. There are 2 swimming pools. The biggest of these includes 5 little pools reserved for children and faces the beach. The other one is slightly more secluded and boasts a little waterfall - the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing nap. The setting is full of charm and the access to the sea, and even to the beach at low tide, was particularly appreciated. The spa centre is rather dated but offers reasonably-priced massages and treatments and the welcome is friendly. If you're up for some exercise, there is a tiny gym space equipped with a few machines but you'll probably find these to be rather uninspiring.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The main restaurant, built on several levels, is spacious and pleasantly decorated with bright tones and a rather classy style. This is where the buffet breakfast and à la carte dinner are served. The evening menu is rather kitsch and includes photos of the dishes that were taken a very long time ago. However, there is a wide variety of choices and, despite the uninspiring photos of the food, the cuisine is decent in the evening, when it can be enjoyed to the music played by a band from the Philippines. There is another restaurant next to the sea that occupies a typical old wooden building. The terrace there is the ideal place to relax; you'll have the impression of being on board a boat, especially when the tide is high. The menu on offer is simple and proposes snacks and international standard dishes (sandwiches, fries, etc.), as well as Vietnamese cuisine. Furthermore, the house returns to its former use throughout the day and serves all sorts of tea with a demonstration of the traditional method used to prepare it.

    Beach 5.70 /10

    There is no proper beach but access to the sea is provided and an artificial beach has been laid out a little higher up. You'll find all the usual equipment: sand, deck chairs and sunshades, but the sea is a few steps down. It's not the ideal solution for children, but they do have 5 pools exclusively reserved for their enjoyment, facing the sea.

    The beach vanishes when the tide is high!
