We have stayed 4d3nts in Famiana Village Hotel in Jan22/2013. We were group of 10 ppl, occupying 5 rooms. (Part of Famiana Resort, lower rank compare to the Famiana Spa Resort, the 5 Professional photo in tripadvisor are actaully taken from Famiana Village. Famiana Spa Hotel is much nicer then Famiana Village! Suggest they update it).
Staff are pretty friendly, I guess due to lack of proper training, they don't know how to serve you. Such as pool towel always run out beside the pool, breakfast buffet always run out of food, plate etc. However, if you ask them, they will bring them to you nicely, with a smile on their faces.
Hotel Hardware, it's not up to our expectation.
First, It was Jan, the room was still so hot! It took a full blast AC and Fan over 1-2 hrs to cool it down. Here come the worst part, You will need to insert card in slot for electricity, it's IC card, you can't replaced with paper or other card. however, you only got 1 key card per room (my friend asked, they refused to give out extra, said it's hotel policy. On the other hand, we got an extra key card, they said because we have infant with us, it's very nice of them :) So, there is no way you can keep your room cool if you are not in the hotel. Everytime my friends went back to the hotel, they were yelling and frustrated due to heat. It just too hot to get rest, even at night! Can't imagine what would happen in Summer time.... Sorry, I like to conserve energy but my comfort is first priority during liesure travel.
Second part come to the sleeping quality. Bed and Shower area is divided by a piece of glass, suppose to be nice but there is one problem. there is no curtain to block out the daylight in the shower or that piece of glass. (I uploaded a photo in Tripadvisor). Every morning, the light will wake you up even you tried to sleep in.... bring your own mask if you want to sleep in at this hotel.
The bed is pretty comfortable beside the sunlight.
Third, you can detect WiFi signal everywhere in the hotel but they hardly work, especially in the morning.... We tried with iDevice, laptop, Android phone, not much of the luck. Suggest you buy a local simcard for internet if you need to stay connected.
Last, the shower floor is not level properly, instead of flew to the drainage, it flow toward the door, glad that is a curb.... the toilet remained a pond and wet for loooong time after each bath. (Happened to few rooms as far as I know. Room A08, B03, B01 etc.)
Resort in Phu Quoc is relatively expensive compare to other tropical escape island. I guess it's as good as it gets for the money we paid. The plus for this hotel is you can use the facilites in the Famiana Spa Resort. Pool, beach etc.
P.S. We been to Famiana Spa Poolside restaurant once. it was the worst meal in this trip. Food is very very expensive, slow, really slow. Food taste blend, the clay pot fish suppose to be dark else where but it wasn't. Fish was not fresh. (1/2 of our group were local travelers, 1/2 were from Canada whoes travel 5-6 times a year, we know what good Vietnamnese food taste like.)
