If flashpackers splurge a little, they get a clean well-appointed room with ocean access and a pool long enough to do laps.
Rooms are simply laid out and have everything an easy going traveller needs: bedside table and plug, coffee table, vanity/desk, clothes drying rack, wall mounted flatscreen TV, wardrobe with a full length mirror and a clean hot water bathroom with a high window that provides light and ventilation. Beds appear comfortable and white linens look crisp and clean. WiFi and air-con complete the package. Rooms have big glass doors – get a pool view and sunlight, draw the thick curtains for privacy.
The hotel has done a good job for a narrow plot of land. Palms provide pool side loungers shade, while you’ll need plenty of sunblock for the loungers at the edge of the property overlooking the ocean (there’s no umbrellas). Unfortunately erosion has completely taken away the beach – steps lead down directly into the sea. For a patch of sand guests will have to walk a few hundred metres.
You won’t get bells and whistles and five-star service at this price. If you want a place that ticks the boxes -- ocean, pool, check, check -- then this is great value. Want to shop around? Check out Rang Garden Beach Side, Hai Yen Family Resort
