We stayed four nights at Hiep Tranh hotel with free pickup at the airport by the hotel staff. We booked a regular room which we found very comfortable with mosquito net on the bed and all the usual amenities (a/c, tv).
Overall the staff was very helpful and friendly with the exception of the female restaurant staffs who were rude most of the time. We believe it was due to their inability to communicate any english.
We were able to book many tours at the reception desk, but we encourage you to shop around as there are slight variation of the offered tours. One of the tour we did was a private tour to explore the north side of the island. We booked this tour with the local mr. Bean who owns a small grocery shop very closeby. This tour costed 60$us for full day(8h). We were enchanted by this tour as mr Bean personally enriched our experience with his stories about the island and we had the flexibility to really extend our times to the part of the tours we enjoyed the most or even adapt and skip some parts. It was a little more expensive than the regular group north island ground tour, but we believe that this tour is really well suited for a private tour. You pay for the car, so for 3 people it would have been almost the same price as the group tour.
The food at the hotel restaurant is okay for the breakfast but a bit limited variety and even not so tasteful for the regular menu. There are a few good restaurants nearby on the main road, so don't bother. I suggest you to definately go take a look at Duong Duong fish market were you will have an amazing sea food experience at reasonnable price. We went there twice at night time.
We can easily recommand this hotel as you will have a direct access to the beach (beach chair and umbrellas), comfortable room at reasonnable price.
