“Vastly overpriced”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The setting is wonderful, right at the beach. The rooms are huge. I would describe them more as "apartments", rather than rooms.
The (freshwater)pool is amazing, as long not a bunch of families make it impossible to relax.

Unfortunately the property fails in so many ways. First of all the rates. For Vietnamese standards
ridiculously overpriced. They don't deliver a service you would expect if you pay that amount of money. I stayed at the Caravelle Ho Chi Minh City for almost half of the price.
The Food in the restaurant varies from very good to so-so. Staff isn't very attentive.

Located literally on the sea, on a cliff! Gorgeous surroundings. Wonderful view, wonderful gardens, nice s-pools. Great taste with the furniture and decorations! HOWEVER, you would expect a correspondent 5 stars service, and there is the rub! Where do I start? First, the staff uniform, (don’t get me wrong, staff is friendly, nice and prepared), but their uniforms are maybe appropriate for a massage hotel, certainly not for a resort! Second, the Bathroom-5-stars-compulsory-kit, (e.g. toothbrush, razor and shower cap), it is simply embarrassing, you can easily find a better one on a 1 star hotel in deep Mekong delta!, the toothpaste was not even a paste, tasted horrible, no comment on a mountable toothbrush, the shampoo is a fake replica of one famous brand, the soap was a fifty cents soap dispenser bought in a cheap supermarket; the shower of my suite (260 USD/night), (yes, two hundred and sixty bucks), had a plastic tube, hanged on a wall, so you cannot take a proper shower if you want. How much does it cost to install a proper rain shower in the suite??; Third, the humiliating breakfast. The very last hotel in Vung Tau, serves better breakfasts. The coffee is not even 100% coffee beans, bread and croissant (2 pieces) are uneatable, and last but not least, breakfast is a la carte….yes, don’t expect a nice 5 stars breakfast buffet, you are going to choose between 3 dishes, whether you have two soup pho, or eggs, that’s it. Wanna something more? You have to pay. Unacceptable. Forth, it is Sunday, you want to relax (certainly you have paid for it). Well, forget it. They open the resort to large families and screaming children for the entire morning. Unacceptable. All this beauty, simply wasted.

this is not well advertised and is probably one of the most expensive restaurants in Vung Tau but if you want to have a great dinner in a great location without too many people around this is the place to go . Food wise it was perfect and in reality the prices were still a lot less than you would expect to pay in any western country. the resort area is beautiful and quiet and i dare say thay it would be a great and relaxing place to stay.

Of course there is some good thing in this resort that made me stayed. Location is great: Right in the city, 5 minute from the boat, by the sea, and a beautiful garden.
The rooms look stylist on the web but old and dirty in the reality. Service was poor. I have the feeling that it is run by a family so it does not care about standard but also no friendliness or smiles.
Breakfast is soooo poor I can't believe. My rooms were 127 USD and 2 other of friends rooms are 98 USD but breafast either Pho/hu tieu (noodles) or some opla with iced coffee. If you take coffee with milk, you need to pay.

This is the second time I have stayed at Binh An. The first time in the superior room at 85USD, most recently in a suite for 150USD. For the price there are much better options in town.

The grounds and actual property are very nice. Probably one of the better laid out resorts and very private.

The service is possibly the worst I have experienced in my 10+ years in Vietnam. The number of staff loitering around would make u think that u would be over-served, however, they are mostly playing cards, sleeping on guest lounges or more interested in their phones.

On Sundays, the resort grounds open to the public, so expect that your peaceful surroundings will be shared with a few hundred other people.

Breakfast is what you would expect from a 1 star guest house. Restaurant prices are equivalent to a 5 star resort.

The superior rooms are much better value and appointed than the suites.

This is one of the nicer premises you will find in Vietnam. It is Bali/Thai style bungalows and gardens with a lovely restaurant over looking the mouth of the river and gardens/pool.

Sadly the food is far too ordinary and does not match the level of the property, especially seeing they charge full 5***** prices for 2 star food and 1 star coffee.

Amazingly for Vietnam, the coffee is shocking (bad) and they charge up to 20 x the local or street rate. So you can go out on the street and get the famous Vietnamese Cafe Su Nam for as low as 5000VND to 20000VND or try at BA resort for 100,000 +15% for a dud Cappuccino and terrible Vn coffee Su Da or Su Nam. There really is no excuse for bad coffee in Vietnam. A bit pathetic and leaves you in that 'disappointed' frame of mind feeling you have been skinned.

The bottom line is stay here by all means but maybe head out to one of the many good eateries in Vung tau till they wake up and sort out the kitchen at this place. get your coffee next door or go out.
