“No electricity!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

I want to be fair here so will break this down into good and bad:
Good - The rooms were spacious, clean and had a good bathroom. They were cleaned daily and fresh towels given. The shower had good pressure and hot water from the solar heaters was available every evening. We were given the option of changing rooms with a balcony and better views the second day as the first room had a coffin below us. The owners gave helpful advice and tips. We were given a good motorbike at a fair price.
Bad: The electricity was off more than it was on. Because of this the AC did not work and even when the electricity was on the AC had no power - I could blow harder myself! We had a fan from the second day but the first night was terrible, we had to shower constantly throughout the night to keep cool. Because of the lack of electricity we had to go out causing more expense. It might not have been the owners fault for the electric but you cannot run a business like that - they need to get a generator. The wifi was useless. The bed was very hard (even for Vietnam standards).The nearest beach was a 15 minute walk away, the town a good 10 minute ride by motorbike - we hired a bike for the days we were there as it was cheaper than taking taxi's to the town and restaurants. For all the extra money we spent we could have got much better accommodation. The owners constantly complained of Vietnam stating the area was like 'Jurassic Park', why stay there if you don't like it?
All in all not a good stay.

Rude staff, location is too far away from city centre , (4km). The owner is a Bit strange but rooms were larghe and clean. In the morning you can sniff a funny smell of sewer coming from the toilet. Be cate full to walk to the bb in the night or in the early morning, because of stray dogs barking at you.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

I was there a few months ago and the rooms are just amazing. The owner (Andre) is very friendly and gives you the motorbikes for a very good price. In a few minutes by car or motorbike you can join the sea or the city. I was also in other hotels in Phu Quoc, but this one was really the one with the highest standards.
