Betel Garden Villas

Reviewed 27 March 2012

We were met from the Airport and welcomed with a cool drink and plenty of local information. We stayed in 2 different types of room they were both set in lovely lush gardens and of very typical vietnamise decor, which had more character than facilities such as you would find in 4 - 5 star hotels. This is more than compensated for by value and absolutely outstanding service. We were invited to eat with the family and other guests and they couldn't be more friendly or generous with both their local knowledge, drinks and food. We ventured out on their excellent bikes for a short ride. We checked out and missed saying goodbye to everyone who made our visit so welcoming. So we would like to express our many thanks for making our stay so memorable and a very fond Goodbye to all the family and staff at the Betel Garden Homestay.

Staying in a family home was a new experience for us, and we arrived late, full of trepidation. How welcome they made us! Our room was, in fact, one of several private bungalows, set in the most beautiful, lush gardens, and a tranquil infinity pool, again stylishly landscaped, completed the fairytale setting. Breakfasts were delicious, served outside, where we were serenaded by song birds. One evening, we were invited to join our hosts and their other guests for a traditional Vietnamese dinner under the stars. Wow!! Money could not buy that experience. We smiled the whole time we were there. Efficient, organised and friendly. Top marks!

We loved our stay at Betel Garden. The garden is beautiful a very nice retreat from the tourist filled city of Hoi An. We walked to town everyday ( a relaxed 20 min. walk) through local neighbourhoods which offered a look at daily life in Hoi An. The pool was wonderful and certainly a nice size and very well maintained. The staff were incredible and quickly learned our names and were very helpful with organizing trips etc. We stayed for 3 nights so we were invited to a family dinner with excellent traditional food. It is a homestay, so they have only 8 rooms, so it has very much a family feel, which added to the charm of the place. We were very sad to leave Hoi An and would definitely recommend Betel Garden to those who would like a unique cultural experience.

Room Tip: We had a bungalow and it was a great choice.

we stayed for nine days at Betel Garden and loved it. the grounds are well kept with beautiful flowers and bird cages hanging from the trees. the staff was very friendly and helpful. other reviews were correct in that the rooms were musty smelling, damp feeling sheets and low water pressure. the family invited us to a delicious dinner two nights and we had a great breakfast every morning. a word of warning! be prepared to pay for your stay in cash as the credit card machine does not work. we were asked at the last minute to come up with over $600.00 US cash, which was very inconvenient. we rented a scooter the whole time for only $8.00 a day and it was so much easier and more fun to get around.

Room Tip: get a bungalow

We really enjoyed our stay at Betel Garden Homestay. The staff were very friendly, and we really enjoyed the hosted dinner for hotel guests (great food, good company - lovely!). The rooms were large and comfortable. Free bikes, which was a fun way to explore Hoi An. Only fault is the toilets have very little water pressure so we found ourselves having to fill up the tank with the hose nearby in order to get a good flush. Would stay again.

We stayed at the Betel Garden in late January 2012 and loved the lush gardens, quiet location and the friendly, helpful staff. It's about a 8-10 minute bike ride to the Old Town. We didn't walk in but I think it would be at least 20 minutes or more. There were always lots of bikes to use and we were given a convenient place in town to safely leave them while we walked around. Dong, one of the managers was very helpful and helped arrange a bike trip for us to the countryside. There are computers to use in the reception area. Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Our room was off the garden and was clean and a good size. Because we stayed three nights we had the unique privilege of having a multi-course dinner with the family. Hoi An is an absolutely fascinating place to visit and the Betel Garden was a great place to stay.
