4/10 Fair

Needs a lot of effort to become 5* resort
Please check your doors if staying in the bungalows - ours didn’t lock and took around 2 hours of staff trying to fix the door before establishing we could move rooms. Beach was unfortunately not as clean as it first appears - loads of plastic and rubbish to the right hand side. We experienced very bad weather which you can’t help but there was no entertainment or indoor activities to participate in and we literally spent a lot of time in our room as a result. Resort also has issues with power going off frequently if it’s stormy. 2 pools at the hotel but only 1 open - no pool bar open and the hotel bar closes at 9 - breakfast choices limited compared to other 5* hotels we have recently stayed in. We have been travelling around Asia for the last month and have chosen to stay in 5* hotels and this was by far the worst out of the 7 we have stayed in so far. It has the potential to be 5* but would require a lot of effort - whilst the staff were all very friendly the hotel itself lets them down. I feel saddened to be so honest but feel this is a fair review and at best would rate this as 3*+ having compared to other hotels not only in Asia but around the world.

4/10 Fair

We booked for this hotel because it was rated 5 stars. But to our disappointment it was nothing close to it. The property was dated. There were ants as soon as we had a piece of cookie even though it was in the box. Staff service was ok but they kept forgetting our bath towels and other amenities since day one! Stair steps were not safe especially for elderly people or disabled people. They offered shuttle service to airport but they were late that we thought we may miss our flight. Overall we were not happy with our stay and we would not come back.

2/10 Poor

This hotel should be a 3 stars hotel, NOT 5. The whole property is badly managed. Cracks and stains were found everywhere in the room. Bathroom is so dirty, with mildews at corners and sink caulking. So disappointed.

Be very wary of your final bills....especially when using the room service. I had 2 very near misses that totaled about 15 million dong. Be aware!

Gorgeous resort, sad state of a beach and island
What a gorgeous and unique resort in a lush, beach front setting with well-thought out landscaping. The room villa was spacious and sunny, but private as well. Well worth the rate. The staff was very helpful and kind to our family. I would stay again, but I’d like to challenge the hotel to do better in terms of “eco-friendliness.” Plastic straws, for one, can be substituted for a biodegradable option or another material. In addition, I would love to see the resorts invest some money into educating and helping the local population about trash and plastic. It will be the ruin of Phu Quoc, Vietnam, and our world if reusables are first of all reduced, and secondly disposed of properly. I’ve never seen more trash on a beach and in the ocean, and along the road. It’s honestly heart breaking. After Tet particularly, every piece of trash was left to blow in the wind and into the beautiful ocean. We can work together to stop this if those with influence, aka, Sun Group or whatever that companies called, and all the resorts give back to the community through aforementioned steps.
