Vietnam is an interesting place, no doubt. It has some amazing parts, but sadly our experience was more heavily balanced towards the mediocre and sadly on many occasions the poor.
With, like most western tourists, the latest Lonely Planet in hand, we took a 300km taxi ride ($50) from the beautiful Hoi An to the next advised stop of Quy Nhon. The roads are scary, even for the reasonably well traveled, but we eventually arrived at what appeared to be an oasis in a grotty industrial town.
The Royal Hotel & Healthcare Resort is, by Vietnamese standards, very good. First impressions are good, with large rooms and friendly staff - one of which was far too excited about the complicated TV.
The location on the beach with grand sea views at the end of a sweeping bay is excellent, but mainly because it is as far away as possible from the Luton-esqe town it clings to.
If you fancy going to town you'll find it lacking in culture, history, and strangely, friendly faces. We enjoyed some local food during the day but in the evening it proved difficult. The 2 places we did go to had rats the size of cats or swarming cockroaches in full view. This experience drove us back to the hotel to find a 4* meal. Sadly it was more 1*.
If you need to stop for a night on your travels then stay here. But get planning to move on the following day, and book in advance, we almost got stuck there!
