Arriving here by propeller plane from Ho Chi Minh city, so there is a bit of effort to come to this "out of the way" place. All the transfers were smooth though and on arrival, we could see why it was all worth it. We arrived at around 7 a.m. which was too early for our room, but we had a tour of their breakfast buffet and spent a couple of hours there -- wonderful view of the beach/ocean, pho bar, etc.
After breakfast, we were brought to our room -- Oceanfront duplex. What a nice spot -- roomy, private, indoors/outdoors. We spent the rest of day one exploring around, walking the beach, hanging by the main pool (watch the sandflies though! use the bugspray!), swimming in the ocean. In the late afternoon, we went into Con Dao town, ate some street food and explored their markets. Back to the hotel for a nice dinner and early night.
Day 2, it was pouring rain. So we weren't able to scuba dive or do anything much outdoors. I used the gym which was fine. We pretty much spent the day in the villa -- ocean breeze and ceiling fan, lazing around listening to music and reading. You need one of those days some times.
Day 3 -- With improved weather, we tried paddleboarding, kayaking/snorkelling (so-so visibility). In the afternoon, we tried the couples massage. Lovely facility - an oasis! They had a "meet the staff" drinks and BBQ. The service has a very personal touch. Staff greet you with a smile and "Xin Chao!" ringing out.

I wasn't looking to spend much time in a room so this was great. Basic and everything you need. And right on the most incredible beach. I made sure to walk it every night at sunset and it goes on for miles.
The staff seemed disorganized and at one point they forgot to pick up my laundry from their service and it almost looked like I was going to lose half my clothes. But they pulled it together. I would recommend saving laundry for later.

A cheap hotel with a good location in the center of town. Hotel is near a great restaurant called Thuba, the market and short walk to the beach. Very friendly and helpful staff. Hotel was nice a clean too.

It suited our needs perfectly. Those looking for a fancy resort will be disappointed by ATC, but the hotel is clean (rooms clean once a day), the staff friendly and attentive and the rooms comfortable. It has a nice pool, hot water, and 7-10 TV channels (sometimes even a movie channel in English).
