“Not a good holiday experience”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

This hotel is located 10 km from Phan Thiet and 30 km fra Mui Ne. There isn't anything to see in the area, no restaurants, no shops or anything. The staff at the hotel doesn't speak English AT ALL. It was very frustrating not to be able to communicate with them . Four times we had the wrong food, because they didn't understand what we ordered. We alsom got a food poison from eating at the restaurant at the hotel and were sick for five days. The rooms are nice and clean and the pool area nice, but thats all. I would never go back to Villa del sol!

This hotel is located not far away from Phan Thiet. We travelled by train from Ho Chi Minh City and it was a wonderful experience. Upon arrival at the station, we took a local taxi to the hotel.

The resort is located by a beautiful beach, with nice sand. Although the beach is a bit narrow, particularly in the afternoon, when the tide is higher and the wind picks up and make the sea dangerous to swim in (at least in January, I am not sure during other seasons).

Friendly staff; comfortable, spacious rooms, and very good food. Free wi-fi throughout the resort. There isn't much else to do other than sunbathing by the pool or walking on the beach, collecting seashells and making sand castles, but that is exactly what we needed!

We also visited a few local sights: the towers, fairy stream, red sand dunes and fishing village. Worth doing! The hotel helped us hire a taxi. They also helped us hire a car to return to Ho Chi Minh City's airport (5 hours drive - at least). Beautiful scenery on the way back, rice fields, small villages and hills.

If you get up early, there are great opportunities for some sunrise photography on the beach, including the fisherman next to the hotel. Breakfast is quite good and the restaurant offered a varied selection of Western and Asian dishes and snacks for lunch and dinner. We loved the Vietnamese food on offer, prepared with fresh ingredients and delicious!

Room Tip: We stayed at the Premium Garden View, which is on the second floor (Ground, First, second). The grou...

I have found this new resort and wanna try to see how it is. I was not impressed with the reception area of the resort, it looks dark and old-fashioned, we were a little bit disappointed as with the first view of the reception area, but then entering the villa is not bad, going up 2nd floor for the Premier Deluxe Room is totally different from the set up we have seen at the reception. It is modern, well-ordered, and worth for a 4-star resort.

From here it just only takes 7km to go to Phan Thiet city and not too far to go to Mui Ne, so if you have your own vehicles, it is nice to drive a round. And you can have another choice to have lunch and dinner at Mui Ne.

We have a nice view from our own balcony, swimming pool is big but they didn't take the insects out until we asked them to do it as like they were full of the pool. Food is very good, fresh and cheaper compared to other same rank resorts. But breakfast is quite simple and not many choices. The most impression i think is the beach, it is excellent, the water is clean and during our stay there is no wave at all. Last time at another resort in Ke Ga, we didn't go to the beach often as beach wasnot clean maybe it also depends on every month but with this time Villa Del Sol, we spent a lot of time in the beach water and it is the excellent thing we have got for our stay.

Managment is not good as anyway this is a new resort, so I hope it will be better. Staffs here are friendly but not yet professional, they need more training but they're very helpful and nice. Bathroom is huge, towels are new but smell a little bit more chlorine, as this is a new resort so facilities are all in new and good condition.
