This property is set beach side and offers up a number of really basic bungalows and is situated on the West coast of Phu Quoc only about a fifteen minute drive from the airport.
The location is pretty good and is about a twenty minute walk into Duong Dong. The beach here is really pretty and there are two fresh water showers where you can rinse off after a swim in the sea. I'm glad that there were showers because there were sea lice in the sea and it seemed to help alleviate the itch if rinsed off quickly after swimming. I'm not sure if this was a seasonal thing but it was certainly not very enjoyable to stay in the waterfor any length of time.
The bungalows were kept clean but really basic with some really uncomfortable chairs both indoors and out. A small patio set consisting of two chairs and a table are found on every porch of the bungalows, great to sit outdoors during evenings but you couldn’t for long because the chairs were so poorly designed. The water temperature of the shower is controlled with a small electric heater that worked so we had hot water showers.
Breakfasts were included in the price of accommodation however they were for sure again pretty basic, eggs cooked as you liked…omelets that sometimes arrived the way you asked for, or sometimes not and a baguette with butter and or jam was also served with every egg order.
You are able to choose two drink items from the small menu…a juice most often and coffee
The “dining” area of the property was adjacent to the reception area as were the computer terminals…about three of them complete with free internet. There’s a wifi system but no repeaters so if you wanted to use your own laptop or notebook you need to bring it up to this area of the property.
The grounds of the property were well kept with some interesting plants in bloom and lush green tropical plants and flowers.
This place turned out to be the most expensive hotel we stayed at during our four weeks touring Vietnam with likely the least quality of service so if I was ever to return to Phu Quoc I would likely give this place a miss and look for accommodation elsewhere. It’s too bad really because given the location of the place its got so much potential.
