We visited Whale Island Resort twice during our 6 month stay in Vietnam. Highly recommend the place as a destination for scuba certification, low key relaxation and as a hide away from the typical tourist hustle. Since it is a bit of an act to get to the place spend at least a long weekend (or 4-5 days if you wan to get scuba certification for yourself or your kids (10+) - check this ahead of time with Rainbow Divers since they have to potentially arrange for an extra instructor ).
At both our visits we did stay a night in Nha Trang and we very much enjoyed that. A stop in Nha Trang cuts the trip to the airport in half and it is great fun
