“Looks gorgeous - needs work...”
Reviewed 7 July 2013

The 3 bed Villa was almost the only available accommodation for a family of 5 in Mui Ne - & we liked the idea of a private pool - the 3 bedrooms though were individual rooms with individual keys & locks - my kids weren't happy to be sleeping in a room accessible to anyone by an outside staircase - so husband & I ended up sleeping separately with them.
Our view was gorgeous as we had the top Villa with uninterrupted views & the private pool was great but did have tiles missing.
We didn't really eat at the resort except b/fast which was pretty basic Western wise.
Location out of town didn't worry us as we happily caught the shuttle or taxi - & did many day trips out of Mui Ne.
Overall it was good & value for money but there are some newer resorts in Mui Ne that I would try next time instead.

after some discussion with the reception they finally found a room from us, i was sure it was my fault for the misunderstanding about the booking. even after that they still helped us out. the view is amazing the room is great. the pool area is great. there is a restaurant down in the village that is a must visit. overall if i am ever back in mui ne i will stay here. enjoy vietnam the people are great as is the food and the country.

Room Tip: any room would be good.

We booked two pool villas for our family and they were very great. All the facilities (except for the gym) were great. And I love the pools there so much. We had one private pool, in which I could relax with my drink and watched the sunrise in every morning. There is one big pool on top of the hill, overseeing the great view of the sea.
My mom and my sister love walking on the beach nearby and enjoy the sun there. It is exclusive for guests staying here only, so it was clean and not crowded.
The meal was great and tasty.
The spa was ok, staffs are friendly in general.

Room Tip: I would prefer the one closer to the sea - for a greater view

We booked this hotel as a company group trip. What we didn't realize was how far away it was from the main strip. We normally stay at Saigon Mui Ne which is on e main strip and 4 stars. Romana resort also claimed to be 4 stars but I am not sure where they got their ratings from. Although the hotel and pool were clean, there were lots of things that were missed. The windows in the corridors didn't close properly, towels were frayed, walls were chipped and paint coming off. The restaurant was varied. Dinner in the evening was good (obviously a betterr chef at night than in the morning) however during breakfast time, food was left in the warm heat eg milk, pate, meats, mayo with no ice therefore became warm and dry. Who wants to eat cereal with warm milk? The yoghurts were out of date. Although there were many waiters no one ever came over to refill tea or coffee, you had to go up yourself - surely a 4 star hotel should offer this service. Even if I didn't know that there were better hotels in Mui Ne I still would not choose to stay here again

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Nice resort! The pool is amazing but catch your seat early in the morning.. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms with terrace are lovely and what a view! A little bit expensive in comparison with the rest of Vietnam but you pay what you get for. Free bus to the city center and back. Breakfast is breathtaking!

Room Tip: Take the terrace!

Our villa had excellent views of the sea and a fairly big private pool. The outdoor bathroom was lovely. Like many of the reviews say, the rooms are a little outdated but for the price we paid they were great. The bed was large and comfy and the air con worked well. The wifi reception was excellent in our villa. The facilities were nice - we bought our own tennis gear and enjoyed playing on a great court. The main pools were huge with stunning views and a bar. There was a billiards room, gym and spa too. The location was good for us - we enjoyed the solitude and found the free shuttles and cheap taxis to Mui Ne fine - of course it depends on what you're after. The only disappointment was the lack of service from many staff - we had to set our own table at breakfast most days, only one lady spoke good English, the staff in the restaurant and front desk usually weren't friendly or helpful and didn't understand simple requests or questions and it took a long time for the staff to collect dirty dishes from outside our villa after room service. We didn't let these things bother us though -  the price was worth it for the private villa and seclusion and we went to the main area of Mui Ne to eat. If you want a super relaxing holiday and value for money then it's good. 

Room Tip: Room 021 has great views and all day sun on the pool area.
