I am staying at this hotel now. It is such a total letdown that I decided to write this immediately. Firstly, there are two Hoi An Beach Resorts in Hoi An . The 'other one' has the name 'Agribank' attached to it. When we saw the name, I told the driver to turn in but it was the wrong one. By the time we realised, he was gone so we had to take a taxi to our hotel.
We reserved a deluxe river view room based on what I read on TA. This hotel is so run down. It was probably good when most of the earlier reviews were written but time has passed and with the salty air and hot weather, things deteriorate faster here. We have already been in Vietnam a week and have stayed at small, very well-appointed hotels in Hanoi and Hue for about USD60 or less a night. This room is costing us USD145 a night with the extra bed and taxes.So ok, they didn't have two swimming pools and an expensive restaurant and spa attached to them. However, their lobbies were airconditioned and they didn't have mosquitoes attacking you while you are sitting at the computers in the lobby.
The room is a total disappointment. There is no computer in the room, (I am sitting here in the lobby, perspiring away, typing on the3rd computer I tried out because the other two didn't turn on properly. Also some keyboards look dirty), the bathroom has no ventilation and is so humid when you are in it. The bathroom has dark furniture and not enough light, so it looks dingy. The lighting is so bad you couldn't put on your make-up properly if you had to. All in all, the hotel and furnishings are dated.
There are 4 local restaurants across the street. The one we just tried was a rip-off, with prices much higher than in Hanoi and Hue for bad food.
Now we have to bear it out for the next 4 days and we thought this is where we could relax and enjoy ourselves bathed in luxury. Even my daughter said 'this costs so much?'
If I had written this review after our stay, I am sure we would have more to complain about but I don"t think it is even necessary. Do yourself a favour and stay somewhere else. If you really want to stay here then stay in the villas. The rooms are the same except there are only 4 per villa. Or a suite. The luxurious photos on their website do not reflect what you get!
