Chao 5koalakoala, Thanks for the nice review and for choosing to stay with us when coming to the island. We're just coming into the end of our high season and we've learned a lot this past year.

Good standard and very priceworthy. Clean rooms, genuinely serviceminded staff and most of the cottages are placed right on the beach. If you are looking for a place to wind down for a couple of days. This is the place.

The Bamboo Cottage experience was a unique one for us - we chose it for its simplistic and natural environment. We couldnt wait to end our Vietnam holiday with a few days of relaxation here. I would say this 'adventure' felt like when you were 14 years of age and nagging your parents "PLEASE can i put a tent in...

We opted for the beach front villa and were very happy with our choice. Literally ten steps to the water. Beautiful bay led to romantic moments !!! Hammocks and lounge chairs right in front provided added comforts. The staff was particularly attentive and very friendly throughout our four day stay over the TET weekend. Even though the resort was full,...

Chao erikswan911, Very happy to read you enjoyed your stay with us at Bamboo Cottages. There is plenty of development going on around the island, thousands of rooms to be opened within the next few years, we'll still be here, one day at a time. I completely agree that we don't usually seem crowded here. In fact, as I type...

The whole team at the cottage was very nice. Keep an eye your kids while they are in water & you can reach the reception using your mobile phone (no landlines in rooms - its not an issue I guess). Enjoy your stay!

I was looking for a special, rustic, quiet place on the beach somewhere in Vietnam for my honeymoon. I thought it would be easy... Days later I was still searching. Either the prices were crazy or the places seemed worn down. I finally narrowed my search into the island of Phu Quoc. Wow... Tons of places, but still not what...

We spent five lovely mornings, evenings and nights at Bamboo Cottages. It is an excellent place. During the warmest (middle) part of each day we explored Phu Quoc island (extensively) by motorbike.

Chao Barry and Ashton, In my opinion, we have the best view of the island from our beach. In truth, it's the only reason I found this place years ago and became friends with the family that owns it.

We arrived later than we planned, after discovering our luggage was misplaced by the airline.

Arriving just in time before the kitchen closed, we were presented with welcome drinks and the best French fries we've had in years. Then off...
