A refreshing splash of colour
What we say:
The lush jungle hillside of Bo Resort conceals a variety of inviting and creatively decorated wooden bungalows. Rooms are slightly bohemian, with beaded curtains in the doorways, brightly painted doors, and blue and yellow window frames. They're light and roomy, with spacious decks, comfy beds, and spotless bathrooms. There's an airy beachfront restaurant, though one guest complained that the menu isn't particularly exciting -- it looked okay to us, but considering that you're a fair hike to any other restaurants, it could have been better. Our only real complaint is that the road you must use to get to Bo is very poorly kept, so hopefully you enjoy room and the nice stretch of beach because it is a hard spot to leave.

Stay Somewhere Else!
We were very disappointed with Bo Resort. The beach (which had been our main reason for choosing this one) was full of rubbish including broken glass, dead birds and other unsavoury things. The bungalows are extremely basic (including no electricity or water at times) which would be fine if the prices for them were more reasonable and they didn't call them 'deluxe.' The food at the restaurant, bungalows and massages are all incredibly overpriced, presumably because the owners know that you can't go anywhere else to spend your money and won't find out you're being ripped off. Finally, when we tried to leave the place early, one of the owners became very rude, started charging us for things which had previously been 'free,' and refused to hand over our passports until we paid. There are lots of better options elsewhere including on Long Beach, which we found to be a quiet and much cleaner beach.

Not quite paradise
We stayed a week and the location was beautiful but the service and prices were less than desirable. Trapped by the nature of this remote location down a dirt road the restaurant prices were exorbitant and charges for simple necessities like bottled water and morning coffees were extortionate. Triple normal charges! We were poorly advised to 'go into town' to make any tour bookings, whereas the resort next door was happy to make arrangements for us. The rental motorbike we used was poorly maintained and bordering on dangerous.On the morning we left they demanded cash payment instead of credit card by suggesting the phone line was down (but then rang us a taxi on the same phone line) and turned off our water to do works so we couldn't shower or use the toilet. The power was already gone due to a rain storm the previous night. The pristine location rescued some small enjoyment of this sad end to our Vietnam trip.

Food was great
We stayed over Xmas break so it was busy with many families -- as such it wasn't as quiet and serene as we expected -- however the food and service was spectacular and likely it would have been exactly what we had been looking for at other times of the year.

Calm and Relaxing
We stayed a week (and left the resort only once), and could have easily stayed a month! We came to get away from, the crowds and found a slice of paradise complete with hillside gardens down to the beach. Great food, cozy bungalows and is worth the bumpy ride out from town.
