Just got back from an amazing week in Hoi An. Here s a brief overview in case it helps anyone......
We stayed aat the Victoria Hotel and Spa. Its a very nice hotel - we went for one of the deluxe beach front rooms. We did change rooms after the first night coz our room was about 10 m from the beach, wehre as the others were right on the beach. The hotel complex and pool is great. Watch out for the ice they put in the pool - on my first day I was happily swimming some lengths when I headbutted a giant ice cube!
We got either the shuttle bus or a taxi into hoi an centre. Its about 50,000vnd each way (or the shuttle bus is free). Food choices are plenty but our favourite by far was the Cargo Club - the best food and the prices are really cheap - you wonder how they can do it so well for the money. In our seven nights we ate here twice 9it would have been more but they closed for refurbishment). We also ate at the Brothers Cafe - however although the setting was nice, the menu was not very extensicve and was expensive compared to many of the other places we ate. Another place we ate at twice and enjoyed was Here and Now - its quite a noisy bar at first glance but they have a restaurant upstairs which is quieter.
We either ate lunch at the hotel or quiote often, wondered up the beach for some cheap and fresh sea food.
All in akll, it was a wonderful stay.
With regards to whether, despite the thunder storms and showers the internet always says, it was ery hot and sunny everyday from about 7am til 6pm. On 2 out of the 7 days we did have an afternoon shower for an hour or two but generally, it was a sunny 35 degrees.
