“Nice chilled out place but the rooms are quite poor”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

Nhat Lan is right on the beach - about half way down Long Beach. It's a gorgeous part of the beach as there's no other resort to the south and to the north are many resorts that are much more expensive (the one 2 or 3 up is about $70 a night in relation to $10 for Nhat Lan).
The restaurant on the beach is lovely and serves a fish bbq every night which is very good and very well priced.
My criticism with the place was the room itself, it was pretty poor and not that clean. However if you just want somewhere to crash and spend the day sitting on a gorgeous beach, then you can probably put up with the room. I don't think there are that many budget options on Phu Quoc with such beautiful views out to sea!

We enjoyed our stay at Nhat Lan - we stayed in low season and stayed in a bungalow away from the water for $10 / night - could have been $8 / night if staying more than one night. The price is very reasonable for the setting as they are right on the beach as is the restaurant - a great spot for eating breakfast. The bungalows are separate from each other and have two hammocks outside on each verandah. Inside they're very spacious with two double beds in ours and a large clean bathroom. Beds are hard - but get used to that, they are in all of Asia!
We hired a bike from here too for $5 / day which was OK.
We had no problems with this place, photos to follow!

Room Tip: We would recommend booking ahead to get a bungalow on the beach front - only $5 more, not much when...

Although the beach bungalows had a tranquil setting amongst palms and garden area, it was not what it appears. As it was low season for us we paid $15USD which was ok, I wouldn't pay more for it even in high season. They stated they had Wifi/internet but both are very slow and possibly not working in the evening. There were a few things that need mention though. Be aware that in Vietnam they must have your passport to advise police in the event there is an accident or as proof of your stay. Usually they will give it back to you but each place is different. Nhat Lan keeps them until you leave, make sure when you pay your bill you ask for a receipt. In our case; when we asked for our passport back the night before as we were leaving early in the morning (we had already paid our bill) we were told come back at 6pm, after that we were told come back at 9 pm. At that time my husband went on the internet and did a bit of research and found a scam where they hold your passport until the last second and try to get you to pay more to get it back. This did not happen here but when 9 pm arrived and he asked again my husband was told that the police had it. When he saw the scam on line he went out and requested it again stating that he didn't believe the police had it and that we should call the police to get it as we were leaving early in the AM. It was returned to us promptly. Also if you get a massage at the beach be aware that the family offering the service on the beach of this hotel will try add in a hair removal to your massage - you must be adamant if you do not want this, because it is not free and they will add an extra double amount to you bill at the end. One very positive note is the restaurant was excellent.
