“Great relaxing place on beach!!!”
Reviewed 13 June 2013

Just down from the main hotel strip and pleasantly situated right on the beach. No issues really with anything other the odd gecko singing. Staff were really friendly and prices in the restaurant were more reasonable than most the places on the strip and nice food. Very clean and nice large rooms with AC and Fan. Cheap beers a couple doors down at a large bar, forget the name but there is a massive lit sign advertising the prices. 10,000 dong for a saigon green. cheaper than Joe's Cafe who was selling them for close to 30,000. Definitely recommend Mai Am for a nice, easy and relaxing stay at a good price.

Room Tip: All the rooms were large. No need to be overly picky unless you want a stand alone room.

We found this place after we reached Mui Ne from Dalat. Location wise, it is located almost at the end of Mui Ne strip. It just few metres away from the famous travel agent called Sinh Cafe. From here, it is quite near for you to reach Mui Ne Fairy Spring, Red Sand Dunes and Fishing village by motorcycle. The room we stayed is triple room, very clean and comfortable, with huge bathroom. You also can hangout in the balcony while enjoying the sea breeze. The breakfast is included with few selections, either Vietnamese or Westerner breakfasts. They have offered some tour service to those tourists spot, but we chose to take motorcycle as my local friend guide me around. However, it is quite hard to find proper and nice diner around this area. I highly recommend all of you to drive few kilometres away in Central Mui Ne to have seafoods with reasonable price. Regarding Mui Ne, one night is enough to explore this place if you have limit time to explore Southern Vietnam. The main spots that cannot be missed are Red Sand Dunes, Mui Ne Fishing Village and Fairy Spring. White Sand Dunes quite far from here, I was told that White Sand Dunes are 20 KM away from here.

Mai am is a very small "resort" with only like 8 or ten bungalows. Everybody is very nice and welcoming, rooms are clean and AC works well some of the rooms even have a fridge.
You can rent bikes and visit the dunes.
We stayed there 5 nights in total and it was the most relaxing time in our trip.

An oasis in a jungle of hotels and shops and restaurants which you never saw or heard once you were in the hotel grounds. This is a group of bungalows and terraced rooms around a courtyard consisting of a beautiful dining area, hotel reception and direct access to the beach. We had one of the bungalows closest to the beach and it was worth the little extra for the view alone. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We asked which foods did not contain fish sauce and the owner simply replied that she would cook all of our food without fish sauce and she was true to her word.
Our room was spacious with great views, TV, safe, large bed and an en suite wet room that was simply out of this world.
The beach and sea at this location are simply stunning, warm and soft and a joy to be on and in. The local fisherman smile and wave at the tourists as they go by in their various small boats working hard to scrape a living, but always happy. The location along the strip is brilliant and you can walk or hire a bike or scooter very easily to all other venues in Phan Thet, HaM Tien or Mui Ne.
Their Vietnamese coffee drip coffee is very special.
Overall this place is inexpensive with good food, an excellent staff and a beach front second to none.

After a first quick stay in bustling Ho Chi Minh everything we aimed for was a relaxed accomodation at the beach. Lured by the bamboo parasols on the website this sweet little spot completely lived up to our expectations and was perfect for laying on your sun lounger, have a freshly squeezed juice or our personally much acclaimed Vietnamese coffee and dip into the water every now and then. The location and the rooms weren't super exciting, but nice and clean and budget appropriate. If you fancied a bit of hustle and bustle you just had to rent a bike and go to the city centre or make a 30mins trip to the sand dunes close by. The only thing that was a bit disappointing (after having been spoilt by previous buffets) was the very manageable breakfast: only one dish and drink from the menu. But the staff was very nice and always at hand if you needed an air pump or extra toilet paper and they didn't complain if you came back after the official closing time after a 'big night out' in town.

We stayed in Mai Am for 5 nights after a couple of days in busy Ho Chi Minh. The location and the layout, close to the beach and with shaddowed "garden" was very nice and relaxing. The rooms where spacious, light and clean. And each room has a little porch/balcony which is comfortable! Even though the breakfast was not a big one (we always ordered and payed extra for a third dish/option) it was tasteful! The Vietnamese coffee was superb!!
I would definitely recommend this guesthouse, simple, beautiful, clean, great location and quiet at night! You get a lot for you money here.

After much scouring (and pestering of other Ta members), we chose the Mai Am Guest House for 1 week to relax after the hustle & bustle of Ho Chi Minh at New Year. We were not disappointed. It is approx a 30-40 min amble into the main strip, but found that although there was not a huge amount going on in the immediate vacinity, there was enough for what we wanted. A few restaurants, shops and couple of bars, but taxis were in abundance just outside and very cheap. The guest house itself is so peaceful, directly on the beach, and has a lovely garden setting. The rooms (and surrounding areas) are clean and well maintained. Our room was a good size and very comfortable with plenty of hot water and was cleaned daily. Breakfast was simple, but ample and always hot & tasty. The staff were lovely and we soon slipped into the more laid back approach than they have in HCM. In all, i cannot fault the Mai Am, it was the perfect tranquil gettaway we were looking for and thank all TA members for their great advice once again.
