Read the fine print and bewarePosted Jan 9, 2018
Pros: No comment
Cons: Management at this hotel should look at special cases and give money back when or at least partial refunds for circumstances beyond a client's control
Location: Ho Chi Minh airport is 5 hour ride away by car and 14 hours by bus or train
Beware. Travel time from Ho Chi Minh airport to this hotel is 5 hours by car which is almost as long as the flight from Melbourne, Australia to Vietnam. You need a Vietnamese government VISA to travel to Vietnam and you will not be allowed on the plane in Australia without a VISA letter. Once in Vietnam, you will need 2 passport size photographs to provide to customs as well as your VISA letter so they can process a VISA for you at the airport. In my case, the VISA letter never arrived in time so I was not allowed to board the plane in Australia and lost the whole hotel money (you pay the whole amount of your stay upfront in Ocean Dunes Resort), as I had to cancel flights and hotel due to this. Be careful as the management at this Resort will not contemplate any requests for money back, whether you paid for a week's stay or 2 month stay..no matter, you will loose all of your money.

hotel on beach with nuie surroundingsPosted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: beach location and sea view room
Cons: access off the hotel site - only 2 entrances off site due to the extensive building work in the area
Location: plenty of places to eat, best places were up near the Lotte Mart.
A hotel that is located on the beach, fairly empty when we stayed there at Easter 2017 - so no problem getting a sun bed by either pool. Make sure you book a sea view room - very good view of sea and gardens. The downside is that you have to walk about 500m+ to get off of the hotel site, and there is a lot of building work going on in the front of the hotel, although this is not noisy during the day or evening. but this didnt spoil our holiday there at all.

Fantastic resort in quiet area.Posted Apr 8, 2016 on Hotels
Resort was wonderful. Room had plenty of space, staff were all excellent in both their jobs and politeness and attentiveness. Chi tai in the mornings with a very experienced teacher. He was patient and ensured we all kept time. Cannot recommend this resort highly enough.

No longer a 4☆ hotelPosted Oct 7, 2015 on Hotels
As many people have said this hotel is dated and the Internet sucks. But is still has some good points. Breakfast is pretty good. Dinner is excellent but expensive. The view and exterior property is pretty nice. The furniture In the rooms need a major upgrade, I can't understand how they managed to mess up the Internet. But I think this hotel now caters to locals and Chinese saw only 1 other westerner during my time there.

Subpar in every wayPosted May 11, 2015 on Hotels
Upon arriving at our room, we quickly request another room because of the terrible odor. The staff moved us to another room, with similar condition, then we noticed the hallway also has similar smell (likely mold or smog). Fearing we may be allergic to this smell, we have to go to a different hotel, although we had paid in full for 2 nights at this hotel ...

Nice resortPosted Apr 16, 2015
Location: Location a little far from town, but it's a resort. Long walk to nearby restaurants.
We stayed one night only while on the road. Very helpful great staff.
