A fairly basic beachfront place towards the Northern end of the main Mui Ne area. I stayed here for 3 nights on a trip with some friends and family. I was keen to stay here after reading the previous reviews, but had trouble contacting the hotel over the internet: none of the email addresses I found for them seemed to work and they don't seem to have a website. In the end I waited until we arrived in Vietnam and asked the staff at my previous hotel to phone ahead and book for us.
We had the two beachfront rooms and one directly behind. Although the beachfront rooms were more expensive (about $35US from memory) we took them because they had limited rooms available by the time we booked, but it was lovely being right on the beach. I imagine you could have a problem with noise if other guests were using the beach/sun lounge area directly outside these rooms while you were trying to sleep, but we didn't have any problems of that nature during our stay.
The gardens were nice and the rooms were all tastefully decorated in neutral colours, which is not always the case with the lower budget places! They were generally clean; we did have one cockroach in our bathroom...we were going to adopt him as a pet but he nicked off pretty quickly!
I wouldn't describe this place as "lively"... there never seemed to be anyone about in the bar and restaurant areas, and whenever we did try and eat there they told us they were closed. No problem really since there were restaurants and bars not far up the street. Same goes for the internet: their internet room was closed for the duration of our stay but there was an internet cafe virtually next door.
Staff did their best to be helpful but their English was limited. We left the door open and a few mozzies got into our room one night, but asking at reception for a can of fly spray was an exercise doomed to failure.
Overall, despite the few problems, this was a nice place, value for money and very relaxing.
One more tip: if you head back towards Phan Thiet, about 100m away on the opposite side of the road is a travel agency called "Gluck Tours". We booked an excellent tour to the sand dunes and Fairy Spring here, with a guide called Trinh, who was amazing. She spoke good English, was always friendly and smiling, knew all about the area, and was very helpful with my mother, who has an injury that meant she couldn't walk too far or fast. She also helped us with our onward hotel and travel bookings. Ask for her by name if you can.
