“Lovely hotel - exactly what we hoped for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 January 2014

This was a lovely hotel to stay with great friendly staff and excellent food. There was a large variety of food for the family and the staff were more than accommodating to our children's eating habits! The place was lovely and spotless - to be expected for a newly built hotel - but there was a a level of care to ensure that the place remained spotless! There was a constant supply of fresh fruit and assortment of local produce which was always welcome. Hard to fault really - superb holiday break for the family and will definitely be bringing the family back again.

After some budget hotel choices, this was a nice change of pace. Bungalows have own porch and big glass doors that open up to a view of the pool. Rooms are new, bathroom had nice open shower. Breakfast buffet, which we didn't add-on in booking but were handed vouchers to anyway, was outstanding (fruit and cake platters, omlettes, pancakes, salads, meats, cheese, pho, chicken curry, mushroom soup, sautéed vegetables...).

Since the resort is new, it appears that a few kinks are still getting sorted out - like the safe in our room not working nor getting fixed. On the other hand, the free breakfasts were a "kink" and they were awesome, so no complaints here.

Address says Duong Dong but this hotel is solidly in the Longbeach strip, 2 minute walk to many dining options on the beach.

This is a nice new hotel, but be careful because it shares the same address with a ghastly cheating hotel 2 doors down, so if you arrive at night and see life-sized farm yard animals made from concrete: you're in the wrong place and get out immediately!

The hotel was still under construction when we arrived, so there was a bit of noise, but it wasn't bothersome. The staff appear to all be in training, so we had 11 staff members serving 3 people breakfast in the small pool bar area before the restaurant was built. Most staff seem to just be standing around, and few comprehend much English, but they get by as a eventually as a group effort.

The bungalow / room was lovely, spacious & clean, although the bed was so hard it was painful. We stayed 5 nights and wouldn't be able to manage more just for the beds. The shower didn't have strong water pressure and it was hard to get the right temperature between cold and scortching.

The location is good, but there are plenty of places that are better. It's not beachfront, but is only a short walk through the resort in front. The town centre is about a 15 minute walk, or short trip by taxi for around $3. The breakfast was a bit lousy with limited options and too many staff hovering around.

The hotel is attractive, clean, new & has a lot of potential, but was overpriced which really is the only downside - oh, and those concrete slab beds.

Room Tip: All of the bungalows are very similar surrounding the pool, none are really preferable over any othe...
