the grande-dame of the Phan Thiet beachfront

This large hotel is the grande-dame of the Phan Thiet beachfront was built by the government before Vietnam reopened its doors to foreign tourism in the early 1990s.
As such, the prevailing impression is that one might get a room, or be processed and sent off for re-education -- it could go either way. The interior is starting to show signs of age, and the rooms, while spacious, are stark and not particularly attractive. But, as compensation, there's a tennis court out back, free to guests, and a pool -- not the murkiest we've seen in Vietnam, but not the clearest either. The hotel appears to rely heavily on pre-booked tour groups and the rooms at the Binh Minh next door are better and cheaper.
