Overpriced but popular with divers
This is the last place along the road as you head south, a good four or five kilometres from the town centre.
The rooms are decent, but not exactly luxurious: hard and heavy Vietnamese furnishings, lots of dark wood and not a lot of subtlety of design. The rooms are well-overpriced for what you get, which is soundly two-star quality at 4-star prices, though they do all have living rooms en suite, air-con, and hot-water bathrooms with tubs. The rooms away from the water are only marginally cheaper than the ones on the water. This place fills up around Christmas, Lunar New Year, and May Day, with people looking for a quick scuba holiday. Much of the rest of the year, it's fairly deserted. It's run by a Korean dive-instructor and his mother, who serves up home-cooked meals to the mostly Korean clientele. They don't speak much English, but some of the staff do. The two swimming pools overlooking the beach are a selling point, though they might sometimes be filled with people training for a dive. If you're drawn here either by the diving, or the promise of some first-rate kim chi, you might want to look at the places near the centre of town for better-value accommodation.
