We travelled to Vietnam february 2010. Two couples and meaning to enjoy beach life, good food and just chill out.
Hotel was nice, clean and included really good breakfast.

But it was really, really far away from the Mui Ne beach. And in Mui Ne, there was everything; restaurants, bars, beaches and peoples. So, Phan Thiet was just for the locals. There wasnt any restaurant to tourist or anything to do.
You had to take a taxi everytime you wanted to go to a beach or take a few drinks. Hotel had a bar, but it closed about 10-11 at night.
Taxi costed quite much if you think Vietnams price level generally. It was about 7 to 12 euros every trip, so there and back nearly 20 euros... Ok, the distance was quite long, it usually took 10 to 20 minutes to go Mui Ne. But still...
So if you like to enjoy restaurants and chill out at evenigs, take hotel from Mui Ne. There isnt anything local, but if you want to get to know locals, I recommended you to take a maybe day trip to Phan Thiet. It is easier to travel to Phan Thiet and take a taxi back to Mui Ne, than the otherways.
In Phan Thiet there is market place and some restaurants, but they dont speak much english, so if you like to know what you are eating, take a guide or dictionary or take a risk :)

We went to local restaurant one evening and there wasnt any menus in english. Staff were very friendly and locals very happy and smiled to us. We watched eating while waiting our food and noticed that there was this manner that when you eat, for example clams, crabs..you can drop those shells in to a floor. And that brings rats! Rats were eating those shells and food wastes from the floor. Not nice.
Allso there was these lizars, guinea pigs and snakes in cages and in Vietnam those really are eatable...so in the next table there was man eating lizar, whole fried...I didnt like that.

Room Tip: Rooms which are located to golf course( windows open out in that direction) hace quite nice views, but I think other rooms views are not so nice...

What a wonderful hidden gem of a place. Ask for directions before you come as the entrance is hidden and hard to find. The staff was very friendly and attentive, but knoew when and how to stay out of the way. The rooms were large, quiet, and very comfortable. The pool was the cleanest I have seen in Vietnam. We were able to see all of the golf action from our balcony. The restaurant had a variety of Western dishes, and great tropical drinks. It was a great value for a romantic getaway. We will definitely be back.

The stay at The Palms in Phan Thiet was the perfect holiday. Located on the 10th hole of Ocean Dunes Golf Course the balconies overlook the golf course followed by the ocean. Quite windy outside to this very good location made it easy to stand the hot weather. The rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. All associates are very friendly and very personal and make you feel being part of their family. After having worked in 5* hotels for more than 10 years this was the best stay in a very long time due to the personalized service from everyone, which started with the very warm welcome of the Manager Ms. Phuong. If you go, try the Tenderloin Tips in the restaurant, great quality!

Colourful. Excellent, modern rooms set in a new construction with an international menu at the restaurant. Can you really ask for more in Vietnam? The staff are very helpful AND will provide transportation, if the beach is your thing. My advice, go hang out at the market or go see the fishing boats. If you really want local flavour, go check out the fish sauce factory!

Although I should have done it sooner, here is my impression of The Palms.

We, my husband, adult son and I, spent a few days at The Palms this summer and had a wonderful time. We were fully aware that the hotel is not on the beach. (This can be an advantage because the water is iffy. On an earlier trip we stayed in Mui Ne and my husband refused to go in the water...) The pool is lovely and it is great to be able to have your meals on the patio over the fish pond. The Palms is not on a hotel strip, but nextdoor to the golf club and it took us 10-15 minutes to walk everywhere and, to a westerner, these are very interesting walks.

The rooms at The Palms are elegant and comfortable, we had no problems with water or anything else and the staff waited on us hand and foot.

The food was great especially the sea-food; I will never forget the huge lobster and the dishes with baked clams.

The staff organised a lovely cyclo ride in the evening through town and we got up early one morning to go to the fish market and we were probably the only western people there. A great experience. We also saw the Ho Chi Minh museum and interesting temples and were taken to a dragon fruit farm. And we played golf. In fact, there was not enough time to do everything; I would still like to climb the mountain and see the big Buddha next time.
