Freedom land is a little oasis owned by a very special couple! I stayed here in November with a few friends and stayed in 3 separate bungalows. We planned to stay for 3 nights but added a few nights b/c we loved it so much. Peter and his wife Rita were lovely laid back hosts but were helpful in anyway needed.....ie when I left my iPhone there when I left for the airport he passed it on to another guest to give to me who was leaving for the airport an hour later!
Motor bikes were easily available although they were a little rickety they got us around pretty well. The road are treacherous in many area so you need to be very carful on the motor bikes.
Peter and his staff cooked up gourmet meals every night, you let them knowin the am if you will be join (about$12US). You sit with other guests at communal table. The food was amazing with an beautiful presentations....course after course wonderful.
The rooms are very bare. It you don't really spend much time there so you don't need much....fans work well to keep you cool at night. Electricity occasionally goes out at about 6pm for under an hours. They have flashlights....no heated water so showers are a little cool but it's all part of this truly Eco friendly resort. The wifi works great in all the communal areas....a few couches, hammocks, big table and covered area with low table, pillows and seats for lounging.
Peter will also take you for a day trip boat ride that is fun and a bit of an adventure....you can see Cambodia from the boat.

My friend and I stayed at Freedomland for 4 nights in early April 2012.

The great: Rita and Peter; friendly, competent staff; wonderfully planned layout with bungalows surrounding the central office and kitchen; delicious options for breakfast and lunch; over the top wonderful dinners that you will want to photograph and savor; and opportunities to meet and get to know the other travelers.

The totally fine: the road to Freedomland can get muddy (it rained each night when we were there, which was wonderfully sleep inducing), but it is not bad and probably keeps some travelers away, which is fine by me; while not right on the beach, it is not far away (10 to 15 min walk) and I found it good to walk off a bit of the good and plentiful food I had been eating; the bungalows are not sealed off from the outside -- so we did share the room with a very large snail, fronts, geckos, a bat, biting ants (not bad -- just startling), and 1,000s of mosquitoes. Be sure to bring your bug spray if you want to avoid a lot of bites. Although the process of putting deet on top of suntan lotion and mixed into my perspiration became a bit tedious, I can appreciate that they do not spray their grounds with noxious chemicals.

Overall, our experience was great.

Freedomland is an incredibly special place - we absolutely loved staying here. First though, we were apprehensive about our stay because we were worried it was a bit hippy-like with the communal dinners etc. If you're having similar thoughts don't worry, it's not like that at all. It is very sociable though, everyone eating dinner round a long table under fairylights. We met some great people.

The food is out of this world. Peter is worthy of a michelin star in our opinion - we eat out regularly in London and yet this guy topped most places! It's about 15 USD for dinner, but that's 5 courses plus a glass of Dalat wine. Incredible value.

Peter and Rita are great hosts. Peter organised us motorbike tours and gave us his advice on where to go around the island. Even when we moved on to another hotel (booked in advance, otherwise we wouldn't have left!) Peter helped us with taxis and invited us back to eat with them.

Only minus point is the electricity goes off ocasionally and in Blue bungalow the lighting was quite dim in the evening so once the sun had set it was quite hard to put make up on etc. Also if you don't like bugs it probably isnt the place for you as the bungalows are quite open. We had no major horror stories though, and we didn't see a single spider whilst we were there! The worst thing was a wasp or two and some mosquitos. We shared our bathroom with a rather large lizard but it was quite fun. Make sure you bring insect repellant.

The beach is a 15 minute walk away. You can go and watch the sun set over a cocktail at Bo Resort.

Van Hi's bar and cocktails are great too, there's one on special every evening.

Freedomland made our trip to Vietnam and if we ever get to come back we wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We are a family of 4 who recently stayed in the Sunset bungalow for 4 nights, this was one of the highlights of our two week trip through Cambodia and Vietnam. Peter made us so welcome from the outset and by the end of our stay it felt like we were leaving good friends behind. The bungalows are clean if a little basic, but this is what you expect as they do not class themselves as a hotel, however the food and company of other travellers far exceeds anything we have experienced and can put top London restaurants to shame. We enjoyed course after course of the most amazing cuisine and had a barbecue on our last night which was a feast to behold. Thanks to Peter, Rita and his wonderful team of staff - we will be back!

Quite frankly, it is almost impossible to describe how amazing this place is.
Beautifully set, fancy decorated wooden huts in the middle of the jungle and yet very close to quaint and quiet ong lang beach (if you want to avoid the hassle of long beach)...
Freedomland is just the perfect location to fuel up, especially if you've done the standard tourist trail from north to south. it couldn't be anymore chilled and the amazing staff do their utmost to take care of their guests.
one thing that really needs to be pointed out is the amazing cuisine at freedomland. it is by far the finest of asian-european crossover cuisine I have ever indulged in...all based on inspirations fromt the far-travelled Vietnamese-Portugese owner couple. we had an incredible course menu consisting mainly of the most delightful seafood I had in the whole my stay in Vietnam. BBQ nights, Pizza and cooking class are also regularly on. And since dinner is communal, it's a superb opportunity to meet other travellers and have a beer or two.
In short: if pure relaxtion and remotenness is what you're after, there's no way of getting round staying at freedomland!
and it all comes at incredibly fare rates..almost to good to be true!

and by the way, unlike the odd travel guide suggests, it's not aimed at hippies...;-)

I would wholeheartedly recommend Freedomland to anyone visiting Phu Quoc. The hospitality is amazing.

Peter and Rita genuinely want you to enjoy your stay there and also to enjoy the island. They make you feel really welcome and nothing seems to be too much trouble. As all the other reviews have mentioned the hospitality and warmth is only surpassed by the food - which is amazing.

I enjoyed sociable evenings spent eating Peter's fantastic cooking and chatting with the other guests. There was a mix of people younger, older, couples, families but everyone was very friendly and nice. All in all a great place with a lovely atmosphere, cosy and friendly.

On the practical side of things, yes the the rooms are basic as you would expect for traditional bungalow rooms but the two different rooms that i stayed in were both very well kept, really clean and with good mosquito nets and fans.

The location isn't on the beach but is a secluded little spot and it's a pleasant walk over to the beach at Bo Resort, or the adjacent empty beach or there's Mango Bay which is also not too far. Tt's also well located for exploring off to the North to the deserted Dai beach which is great too.

Can't recommend it more highly.
