  • Lovely and close to beach!!! The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The pool is lovely and clean. The rooms are well appointed and nice. The breakfast table set up for us all was very nice. The decor has had attention to detail to appeal to western tastes. They will help you get things around and make recommendations. The beach is a 3 minute walk away and the restaurants nearby are good too. I suggest a few small tweaks like more umbrellas for shade during the day at the pool and a few more paving stones under the tap for washing feet. The idea of a nice big tub in our garden was nice but as it's exposed, we didn't use it... maybe a privacy screen... not sure how you'd do that.
  • Many places to eat, shop, take pictures, stroll at your pace. None of the merchants where pushy at storefronts. Look around before settling on one place to buy; many shops sell similar items. At night the place really takes on it known charm with all the lanterns. You have to take a lantern boat ride to the other side, even more places to snack, eat and shop. Wonderful experience during our visit. Will definitely go again!!
  • I've seen the old town evolved over the last 16 years a lot, but its charm remains the same. You have to check its history before or while visiting it to really understand it. And if possible, try to discuss with the locals, they are adorable.
  • Truly magical place, the must see in Vietnam. To be honest, my favourite place in the whole vietnam. Much more peaceful, not much traffic, no high-rise buildings. The artists and all the shop owners are genuine and offer very good service. The best place is you need any leather goods or to get a personal tailor for a suit or coat.
  • The most amazing place. Wonderful food, a great vibe, lots to do and a shopper's paradise. Definitely a place to get custom clothes made. Unfortunately was badly hit due to pandemic. A lot of merchants struggling and some wonderful places closed. Visit as soon as possible and support them.
