HE SAID: Sadly, we checked out of the Victoria Resort and into our much less expensive, Sunny Beach Resort; www.sunnybeach.com.vn. Since the last hotel was out of Mui Ne town, we wanted to stay at a resort that was in town so we could walk to restaurants, bars, etc. Our hotel is so new that instead of curtains covering the windows, they had white …
... weeks of our trip remaining.
The following morning we rose and went straight in the pool for a dip. The weather once more was perfect, the blue sky behind the palm trees unrelenting. We ate breakfast by the pool before spending a bit of time on the beach. If possible, the sea was as warm as the pool. Our bus to Saigon arrived to pick us up just after 1pm. We hadn't seen much of Mui Ne, but had enjoyed 24 hours of near-luxury by our standards. Onwards, to ...

Here the road gained a coating of loose gravel, which soon became very loose gravel... Then compacted clay... And then sand!
With the surface now alternating between compacted dirt and sand, and the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsSunny Beach Resort Phan Thiet
This is one of our favorite place during our 9 day tour in Vietnam. It has everything a resort should have: two good size pools, private beach and most importantly they serve beautiful breakfast. It was a smart choice to stay here as we were able to relax and rejuvenate. However, a couple things surprised us. One, the receptionist was not very helpful. We asked a few questions regarding getting around the place, she gave very short answers and seemed inpatient. Two was their spa facilities which was by far the worst experience that we have. When Poh and I stepped into their spa facilities, we started to doubt our decision. The facilities looked shabby and the air was musty. Both of us had Aloe Vera facial. I cannot believe they used raw aloe vera and put them on our face. The whole experience was unpleasant, stingy pain and distressing! Would recommend the resort to people but definitely not the spa!
