“Great accomodation, poor breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Nice basic bungalows on the nicest part of Long beach. We had wanted beach bungalows but only got sea view bungalows which turned out to be perfect. Seaview bungalows are individual and the terrace gives you privacy while the beach bunglows are two together and with people on the beach just in front of your terrace. Mr Pho in the reception very helpful! Breakfast stops at 9 sharp and is quite poor as reported by several other TA members.

Room Tip: Go for seaview bungalows!

Had a beach villa for 8 days, and we loved it! Could not be better. The breakfast and restaurant is also very good. Try squid or shrimp with chili and lemongrass. Taste good!
The only thing is If the bed could be a little bit softer, it is rock hard. The pillow is too thin. But IT doesen 't matter. The beach is soft :-)

My wife and I had a lovely seven night stay at the Sea Star resort. We got a last minute cancellation, so were in the tower block (only four rooms). The room was modern and spacious with AC. The resort was great... The beach was amazing! We toured the island on a scooter over a few days and the hotel beach (Long Beach) was definitely the best we saw! We also ate at the night market most nights which is highly recommended!!

We stayed here for 3 nights in September and had a great time. It poured with rain for the first day, so we sat on our balcony watching the rain fall on the garden, which was lovely and relaxing. We managed to walk into town between showers but there wasn't much to do or see. On the second day we hired scooters from the hotel and took our lives in our hands dodging pot holes and following a very misleading map. It was a miracle we made it back in one piece but had a great day. On our last day the sun shone and we spent the day on the beach. Having walked the length of the beach several times we thought the Sea Star Resort looked much nicer than the others, and their section of beach is beautifully clean. The food was perfectly adequate and the staff attentive. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were glad to have a garden room as when the weather was bad the beach facing huts would have been...

This is one of those places that won't be available for this kind of money in 5 years time. Yes in a Sheraton you will get a better kind of room with carpets and fancy decorations etc etc. But you will not find for $85 US dollars, a room on the beach with a 4 poster bed and a mini bar with beers costing $0.50.
What an amazing place. We cannot praise this enough. Don't make the mistake of saving a few dollars by going for a "garden" room. Get a bungalow on the beach, watch the sunset, chill out.......

Life doesn't get much better than this .....................................

Room Tip: Get the beach bungalow - it's well worth the extra

Stayed here for 8 nights this month. Good clean rooms with ample space. We had garden room which was ok.

Beach was fantastic and always clean. Breakfast was average, same everyday and it seemed staff were carefully controlling portions. Staff we re friendly. We rented motorbike from shop outside hotel which was good.

There was construction going on which woke us most mornings but breakfast is very early here and finishes at 8.55am sharp!

Would stay here again, but would maybe take a beach view. I do agree the hotel is not social without a bar, but otherwise is ok. It was a pain taking sun bed mats to beach daily.

Pleasant hotel without being special. The beach is its wow factor.

We stayed 5 nights at Sea star resort. What a wonderful relaxing place, it feels like home.
The staff were very nice and friendly. We talked a lot with Khanh Quoc, very nice guy, he gave us a lot of information about the Island, what to see and what to do during our stay. The restaurant served nice and tasty food, the breakfast buffe included in the roomprice was good value. We had a garden room view, nice, clean room with a little veranda where you can sit and relax. Next time I will book a beach villa to see the beautiful sunset right on the beach.
We did some sightseeing around the Island, many interesting places to see. We already planning to go back next Christmas and stay at this wonderful beach hotel.
