We spend considerable time researching the best place to stay in Mui Ne and came up with three options: Seahorse resort, Mia and the Victoria.
After readig a number of reviews we settled on the Seahorse and once there it turned out to be the best choice.
The staff are extremely friendly. Everyone smiles and goes out of their way to help you. We could not decide on a room, reception offered to show us around and were happy to see us change rooms 3 times. Dont get me wrong there was nothing wrong with the room, I was just after the perfect view. Everyone is very happy to go out of their way to accomodate you. I could not work out how to activate the internet, reception send their IT manager across who resolved the issue with my laptop within seconds.
Breakfast is fantastic, all the food is fresh, with a perfect mixture of oriental and western food. There is an outdoor section and a lovely outdoor terrace overlooking the sea from where you can hear the sea.
In the front of the resort there is a new restaurant which does happy hour, bbq buffet, seafood bbq and Vetnamese evenings. The food is great and the atmosphere nice. It is a shame that this does not take place in the beach restaurant but the hotel is looking for passing trades not just their guests.
The swimming pool area is one of the prettiest we saw, it is very wide, green and overlooking the sea. There are plenty of loungers but like all tourists, putting towels in your favorite spot is probably recommended.
The beach is gorgeous, it goes on for 12km. The mornings are very calm, sunny and still. From about 12pm it gets quite windy (easy to burn as you do not realise how hot it is) and so there a plenty of windsurfers around.
The resort is on the edge of a road that stretches all the way to the village. The road is narrow, relatively traffic free and full of tourist shops and fresh seafood restaurants. There is an ATM just on the left of the hotel as well as plenty of pharmacies.
Journey from train station in Phan Thiet to hotel is about 10min. When you leave the station a number of drivers ask you what you after, bike, private car or taxi suggest you go for the metered taxis.
The hotel has beautiful and well maintained grounds. The rooms are simple but luxurious, we especially loved all the light, the little garden in the middle of all the rooms and the splendid bathrooms.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Seahorse resort and would recommend it. Having walked up and down the beach where all the resorts are this seemed to have the nicest gardens and pool and fitted with the landscape without being over crowded like the nearby hotels.
This resort mainly seemed to have Russian guests, they were all very friendly and very quiet. Mui Ne as a whole seems to have many Russian visitors, all the shop signs are in Vietnamese and Russian which adds to the character of this beautiful place.
