    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.

    We arrived at the beach resort of Mui Ne and essentially didn't do much once we got there as our hotel had a lovely pool to cool off in and we read and swam for most of the day. You’ll notice I’m now saying 'hotel’ instead of ‘hostel’ as we’ve move up in the world and are staying in nice hotels now as they are...

    Through the frosted glass of a swanky Russian restaurant window Carly witnessed a cobra slaughter. She nudged me and walked inside to get a better look. I took her vacated seat and we watched the owner 'gut' the snake and place the heart on a small plate and pour the blood into multiple shot glasses. The eagerly awaiting customers went 'bottoms ...

    Mmmmmm....seafood.....

    Arrived in Mui Ne around 1:00 p.m. …jumped on the back of a couple of motorbikes (since we have had nothing but good experiences doing this) and had them take us to the hotel they were promoting. It was quite nice with an oceanside pool and the other usual amenities. Mui Ne is more of a resort town…there really isn't a town acually, ...
