Best pool for kids - Alana or Novotel?

We will have our children aged 5 and 9 with us when we visit Nha Trang in July. They will want to spend every waking moment in the pool!

I have given up on finding a ground level pool with grass area, and am happy with the prices and bedding arrangements I can get at Alana and Novotel.

Comments on both would be great please...ie is there more shade at one over the other? Also, the hotel in general.

Many thanks,

Sparkles

Have you looked at Sunrise hotel ?

Novotel is a great place but the pool is not so good, smallish and does not catch the best of the sun. Alana is new and haven't seen there pool yet but would imagine its better than Novotel. Lets see what others who have seen Alanas and Sunrise pools.

Apart from the hotel pools take the kids down to the old municipal swimming area. It is on the main beach, Tran phu street opposite the light hotel ( which has a nice pool on the ground ) The pools have been fixed up by a private company and is very pleasant. They have restaurants, kids rides and a stone throw from the beach.

It is called many things, but yes big sign up saying Central Park. Many ex-pats call it Gorky park ;-)

If you have kids they will enjoy it.
