Nice hotel away from the hassle and bussle
Posted Sep 4, 2016
Hoi An Beach resort is a lovely resort located about 15 minutes drive from Hoi An City and the Old Quarter. I chose it to be the last experience on our two weeks Vietnam trip, so we can have a relaxing beach holiday before going back home. We were extremely disappointed to discover that the beach was washed away on the last Typhoon. The first room we were give (a superior river view) was horrible. The bathroom was full of mold that was mostly cleaned out but big black stains were on the ceiling, and door and the view was of a brick wall and the river was on the side, and you could see it only if you walked to the balcony. When I complained, the were trying really hard to change our room and showed us a few upgraded rooms until we were satisfied with a room a Deluxe room overlooking the river which was really nice except the bathroom. The water pressure was terrible and there is mold all around the bath tub. They have two pools, and we liked the infinity pool looking over the river. They must change their umbrellas, as they are not UV proof and we thought we were in the shade, but got terribly sun burnt from sitting there. Breakfast was OK and the setting right by the was really nice. There is a free shuttle to another beach and to Hoi An city, but not often enough. Taxi to town cost about 4 US Dollars one way. You will get hassled if you walk of the hotel by women calling you to their restaurants, spas and laundry. Snack bar meal prices are reasonable.
