I think every positive thing to say about the Betel Garden Homestay has already been said. I would simply like to agree with all of it. My family stayed 4 nights but most of the other guests we met there were staying longer, and many were on return visits, which says it all.
We got adjoining rooms in a garden villa. The rooms were excellent in every respect. Our children loved this place, which goes a long way to making a happy stay.
We used the pool every day: all of the activities we did in Hoi An were relatively early start and finish so we were usually recovering in the pool by 4 o'clock, comparing notes with other guests. Despite being full the place never seemed crowded.
The gardens are beautiful and I have to give special mention to the mini-bar: beer for 50 cents a bottle on your own veranda is hard to resist!
We were invited for the free evening meal on our last night. Great food and great company.
Staff were super helpful and friendly without getting in your face. They asked us whether we had any plans or ideas and when we told them they made the arrangements for us, including a 5am taxi the day we (reluctantly) left.
The location is maybe 15 minutes on foot from downtown, but bikes are available free so this was never a problem for us.
On a minor note, we did a food tour in Hoi An with Neville Dean, an Australian living and working in Hoi An, and he was very positive about Betel Garden. By this time we already knew how good it was, but it was nice to get confirmation from an independent knowledgeable source.
Like Arnold Schwarzenegger - we will be back.
