We came and stayed at Vin Pearl Luxury resort in July 2017 for 10 nights on a Scoopon deal. We stayed in a beachfront villa with our own plunge pool out the back. This room was plenty big enough for a family of two adults and two children (9 and 4). One child was given a roll away bed and the other slept on the couch. The room was spacious. We stayed at the very end near the spa and it was nice and quiet being tucked away down the end. Our package included all meals - breakfast, lunch and dinner. We had never done an all inclusive package before so were a bit concerned about what the variety might be like. We were pleasantly surprised to find that their was plenty of variety of both western and Vietnamese foods. A pizza and pasta station was a hit for the kids! The staff were very accommodating and would make things to order, such as freshly made rice paper rolls, if we wanted meat well done they were more than happy to do it. There was also a fresh seafood buffet to choose from for barbequing. They were building a new bbq area when we were there so this should be set up now.
The pool was huge and the resort was quiet so we were lucky to have the pool almost to ourselves - a nice change from some of the busier resorts in Thailand and Bali that become over crowded.
The beach was just beautiful, so nice to walk out the front door of our villa straight onto the beach. Just beware of Jelly Fish and look out for the flags. When we were there my husband and two daughters were all stung by jelly fish quite badly. Thankfully they were ok, but we were not even made aware that there would be jelly fish in the beach - it was a shame, but I have to say the staff were so helpful and amazingly quick to come to our aide. The life guard on the beach was so quick to come and see them, and was on the walkie talkie to the front desk and before I knew it, within minutes there were 5 or 6 staff helping out, including managers and the resort nurse. They were amazing - THANKYOU! They gave them pain killers and sugar syrup it all helped and they even followed up with phone calls to check on them. The jelly Fish sting was extremely painful so avoid the beach if there is a danger. This didn't spoil our stay though as the pool was awesome.
We used the KIDS CLUB at the other Vinpearl resort and each time we wanted to use it we were transported on a golf buggy which was about 5 minutes away. It was great to have access to the kids club but it would have been more convenient if Vin Pearl Luxury actually had their own. This round trip took almost half an hour to drop the kids in, then wait for a buggy back to Vinpearl luxury. My suggestion is to ask the driver if they can wait and you run the kids in and then run back out again and hopefully the buggy is still waiting for you!! My younger daughter enjoyed the kids club but my 10 year old wasn't that keen. It was pretty quiet, so not much opportunity to make friends for her. We paid for each of them to do an activity to keep them entertained for an hour or two.
Vin Pearl Land was also included free and unlimited entry with our package and this was an awesome addition. We thought we'd only go once but ended up going most days just for a couple of rides to kill some time and the kids loved it. We also used the cable car a lot to go across to the mainland to stock up on beer and wine, and snacks. The kids loved this too, it was an adventure. You can also get the speedboat ferry across which is a bit quicker. There is no shops to buy food and drink on the island, so unless you want to pay resort prices for room service drinks then the best thing was to go to the big department store on the mainland where they have a big supermarket within it that's stocks beer and wine.
It was our first time to Vietnam. We cannot explain how beautiful the people of Vietnam are - just so exceptional and very accommodating. The staff at this resort were AMAZING, I cannot remember everyone's names but just to mention a few of the stand out staff who were really helpful, and so lovely with the kids too. In reception there was Tram and Thai. Thankyou for being so wonderful and helping out. The kids really liked Tram who gave them a gift when we left and was always smiling and very helpful. They also organised a birthday cake for our daughter who had her 10th birthday when we were there.
In the bar was Khoy who was very friendly and good at his job.
In the restaurant the manager Phu ong was so friendly and very helpful and great at what he does, also fantastic in the restaurant was Don and Hien. There were other staff in the restaurant whose names I forget but they were all good. I noticed on other trip advisor posts the negative feedback about difficulty communicating, but we thought the staff all spoke good English, (especially as it is their second language),and communicating was pretty easy..... if they didn't understand they would ask for help.
We would definitely come back to Vinpearl Luxury to stay in the future, especially if there were another Scoopn deal or similar package. We looked at some of the other resorts on Vinpearl Island and none of them were anywhere near as beautiful and all seemed to be really busy with many Chinese tourists and Russian tourists.
It was an awesome experience and a beautiful part of the world. Thankyou for a beautiful memory.
