Scrabble Massacre

A travel blog entry by james.ashton

1

There's a wafer thin strip of beach, the sun and an endless strip of small hotels and restaurants and that pretty much all there is to say about Mui Ne. We had a pool, we had Scrabble and that’s pretty much all that was required. Oddly there was a great little kebab shop opposite the hotel. The staff managed to battle through even during a 5 …

Lazy Day in Mui Ne

Yep, definitely had some kind of a bug. In spite of having slept 4 hours in the afternoon, I had no trouble sleeping all night. The fatigue was due to some kind of intestinal bug, perhaps related to the fish sauce on Phu Quoc? Who knows.

I had a slow morning but started to feel better by around 10:30, so I headed out for a beach walk, and …

Early Morning

No real problems getting up for the 6:50 AM train to Phan Thiet. The staff at the hotel were asleep when I left at 6:05 - and the front door was locked from the inside. I had to wake up poor Nim who was asleep on the floor (no mattress or pillow) behind the front desk to let me out. Outside the door there were two piranha taxis waiting for me. In …

Vacation From Our Vacation

So, our bus for Mui Ne was scheduled to leave at 1:00, but they'd pick us up from our hotel at 12:30. It showed up at 11:40. We drove around the city in this tiny, beat up minibus picking up folks, & waiting an extremely long time for people because most were not ready to leave yet. The van, as usual, was oversold, & people had to sit on …

Sandy Sand Dunes

I got a 6 hour bus from Saigon to Mui Ne beach and immediately booked onto a Jeep tour to the Sand Dunes of Mui Ne which id herd were pretty sweet. First stop was at the Fairy Spring, basicly a shallow stream that you can walk up through some cool rock formations. It was OK but i was on a tour and there were **** loads of people. Obviously this was …

    New clean room, great pool.

    The story of this resort is the story of two resorts. There is the Hai Yen Family Resort, which is on the "beach", and there is the Hai Yen Resort, immediately across the road from the HYFR. Both have very nice moderate-size swimming pools with an adequate number of comfy lounge chairs with shades. The pool at the HYR is a bit nicer, a bit cleaner, and deeper.

    My room was in the Hai Yen Resort, which appears to be either new or recently built. The room was new and immaculately clean - the only trivial problem was that the shower head holder was broken in the bathroom so you had to hold it. Like almost all hotel rooms in Asia, the shower and toilet are in the same room. If you want the toilet seat to stay dry when you shower you need to lift the lid - duh!

    One strange thing: the windows are barred so that you can leave them open, but anyone with a reasonably long arm and some flexibility could reach through the bars and unlock the door from the inside. So, you have to leave them closed unless you are in the room and awake. Also, there was no in-room safe and no mosquito net. Oddly, I didn't see a mosquito the entire time I was in Mui Ne, but it was dry season. The lack of mosquito nets might be a problem at other times of the year.

    You need to read the rules posted on the wall carefully - there is a significant penalty for late checkout, even 5 minutes.

    Another minor downside is that there was a little bit of road noise. My room was on the second floor quite close to the road so it may have had more noise than usual, but there we other rooms higher up or farther away where this may not be a problem.

    The "other" resort, the one on the beach, looks somewhat older and not as well kept on the outside - I didn't go in any of those rooms so I can't say what they are like on the inside. On the other hand, you will get to go to sleep and wake up hearing the surf instead of the road. It is windy in Mui Ne every day and the wind waves sometimes splash up onto the deck by the beachside pool at high tide.

    People need to be aware that beach erosion has ruined the middle third of Mui Ne beach, and instead of beach it is now a sloped concrete seawall with no sand showing except at low tide. If you want to walk on a sandy beach you can, but you have to walk a bit to get to it. If you really want a resort on a sandy beach in Mui Ne you have to do your research or pay a bit more than what people generally pay for this resort.

    This resort is well worth $20-$25/night for a room with a double bed because the rooms, at least at the Hai Yen Resort, are clean, new and well-equipped. It is not worth much more than that and if they are charging more you can walk down the road and get a better deal. But who wants to spend their holiday seeking out better hotel deals?

    The food in the restaurant was nothing to write home about, but there are many good restaurants within a 5 minute walk, so it doesn't matter. The level of English among the staff was adequate - try speaking some basic Vietnamese to the staff and they are quite friendly and appreciate your efforts. They had bikes and motos for rent, but I didn't try any of them out.
