My Wife and I stayed here 27 May to 3 June 2012. We had a great stay. The Hotel is very modern and only a year or so old. Check in was smooth and we were made welcome with the obligatory welcome drink. We were upgraded to the Deluxe poolside room which was very nice indeed, ultra modern but could have been better had little things like international plug sockets been used. the bathroom was very nice with some nice toiletries including body lotion, toothbrush & paste, sewing kit etc. Tea and Coffee making facilities in the room were good. The bed was a king bed and very comfortable. The room was spotless clean and the wardrobe was adequate if not small and could have done with some form of a drawer.
There is free Wi-Fi throughout the resort.
Breakfast was good, plenty of choice centred around the egg bar, where eggs any style are prepared to order, some great Asian food like Pomelo salad were on offer as well as rice and noodles and all the standard European fare.
The pool is great; there is also a small kiddie’s pool although there is no shade to the kiddie’s pool which would have been nice given the strong sun. The staff around the pool are very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. There is a nice pool bar with happy hour wine starting at 5pm. It seems the hotel have this a little wrong as most "happy hours" around pools begin a little earlier around 4pm which would have suited most people returning from trips out etc. instead they had an hour by the pool and then went to their rooms to change ready for the 6pm shuttle so happy hour never really got going. The food by the pool was okay given its a hotel and expected to be a little more expensive than the food in Hoi An itself. It worked out at £3 for Pho and around £6 for a burger ++ (plus VAT & Service charge). A draft beer was £1.40, and a bottle/can £1.90, a Coke was also around £1.80 all ++.
The beach is beautiful, 25 mile of white sand, the famous China Beach stretches from Da Nang down to Hoi An, there was odd fisherman on the beach who were happy to show you their catch. There are a couple of disused coracles which look quite nice. Looking out to sea you can see Cham islands on the horizon. The hotel has a life guard on the beach along with sun beds and plenty of much needed shade.
There is a Spa which my wife used and enjoyed which is reasonable priced.
We ate in the hotel one night and were the only people in the restaurant, we had a Vietnamese set menu and it was nice food well presented.
Across the road from the hotel are a number of local restaurants who make great food and can't do enough for you, the food and drinks are a third of the price in the hotel. You can have laundry done at these places for 30,000VND a Kilo (£1) with a 24 hour turnaround. Next to the Hotel (on the left) you can buy beer and soft drinks for 50p and 30p respectively. Handy to have in the fridge in the room.
The shuttle bus works really well going into Hoi An and back during the day for free. The last returning at 9.30pm and often more than one shuttle bus would turn up to ferry everyone back. Its a 10 to 15 minute drive and although you can get a taxi we didn't need to.
All in all a great stay and would recommend to all.
