Granted that we saw this resort with 4 stars on internet and we booked 7 rooms through a tourist company in VN. Here are my family reviews:
1 - Probably 4 stars according to the local standard but definitely not American standard
2 - The spa was under construction and so was the big rectangular pool
3 - The restaurant is an open environment. Beautiful but with no AC and right in the month of June, it was warm and we were sweating while trying to eat breakfast. Dinner not that bad since it has the breeze from being at the ocean front.
4 - The restaurant staff was very nice taking care of us. Good service.
5 - The TV has only 1 or 2 channels that you can watch but don't try to watch other channels since it's either a blue screen or really fuzzy. Call for service but didn't hear from them.
6 - In a couple of our room, the AC was not working and call for service and had to wait for several hours for maintenance man to come (they cannot come in your room if no one is there).
Overall, we believe that the hotel is trying to be a 4 stars but the execution of it is poorly done. We have to give good service to the staff at the restaurant but the receptionist and everybody else is probably an OK.
