What we say:
Toward the end of the long line of resorts that line Phu Quoc's Long beach, Beach Club occupies a small slice of real estate right on the beach. While rooms are basic, the warm welcome here makes this an excellent budget choice.
At Beach Club two flavours of rooms are on offer: four bungalows, which are larger and have better views of the water, or six connected rooms, where the views are obstructed by the club's restaurant. Both the standard rooms and the bungalows are similarly styled, with muted yellow walls and a thatched roof outside, white walls and orange tiled floors inside. Both inside and out, the rooms are kept clean and in good repair. We were quoted standards for $25 or $35 in high season, and bungalows $30 to $50.Rooms are no frills: you won't find TV, air-con or a fridge, and even the WiFi struggles to reach most rooms, but you will have a comfy double bed, a standup fan, and a decently sized hot-water bathroom. Even though the rooms are limited in amenities, the warm, welcoming staff more than make up for it, offering help whenever you need it as well as top notch sightseeing advice.
While the rooms may be bare bones, you probably didn't come to the beach to hang out inside your room. If you came for the beach, you couldn't get much closer than you do here. The two beachfront bungalows at Beach Club open directly onto the beach, and the longhouse row of rooms aren't much further behind. The whole resort would practically be in the water during high tide if it wasn't elevated and protected by a cement retaining wall.
At one time Beach Club was the end of the line for resorts on Long Beach, with an endless span of beach all to itself. A few neighbours have moved in, with Paris Beach now next door. Even though the slow creep of development has caught up, traffic in the area remains light and you'll still get a feeling of isolation.
And, in practical terms, you are isolated. Beach Club is far enough down the beach that walking to the more developed areas of Long Beach is quite the trek. For a reasonable price you can rent a motorbike to head to the night market or one of Phu Quoc's restaurants. If you decide to rough it, Beach Club's restaurant is a bright spot compared to other resorts. Sitting right on the beach it's a great place to relax, drink in hand, and watch the sun set or surf the web on their free WiFi. The food is good, with a menu consisting of Vietnamese favourites, most with options to add seafood.
With its great reputation, lower prices than its neighbours and limited space, you'll have to plan ahead if you want to stay at Beach Club -- booking ahead is a must. If they're full though, the neighbours may not be a bad choice. Thai Tan Tien, about a 300-metre trek to the north, is a lesser-maintained clone that sits much further off the beach. If you want a more isolated stay still, Bo Resort or Mango Bay on Phu Quoc's Ong Lang beach would be your destination of choice, although you'll be spending quite a bit more. Or, if you have luxury on the mind and want to stay central, a night or two at La Veranda might be in order.
