Place is clean. Air conditioning works well. Tea kettle in room with artichoke tea (no coffee in room). Plenty of hot water in bathroom (too hot in my opinion). Nothing bad here, though nothing special. Breakfast buffet is ok. I like the noodle soups. The bread tastes kind of stale. The people working here don't seem to be very happy, or sad. Kind of blah.

– “Claims to be a 3 star and it is a 3 star”
The hotel occupies almost the length of the town ocean front. The two main buildings and villas are about 1 kilometer long. The check in counter is in the main building. Be prepare for a long walk with luggage to your room if you stay in the villas/bungalows. Across the street is the ocean. Traffic is non existence. Beside cars belong to hotels, the whole island only has seven taxis. The hotel provides shuttles to and from the airport. The beach is very shallow. When the tide is low, one can walk almost a kilometer out to the sea. The better swimming area is near the historic 914 Pier. Water shoes are recommended as the fine sand/silt gives a slimy feel to your feet. Dive and snorkel shops are also down past the pier. It feels refreshing to walk along the sea wall early in the morning. The room size is average. The bath room has shower/tub combination. Basic toiletry kit is provided along with the hair dryer. There is a small closet, fridge with mini bar. There is also a safe to store your valuables. There is a table with two chairs, desk, TV. The night stand has the switches for all the lights in the room. Wifi is free at the resort. The famous "Tiger Cage" jail house is directly across from the rear entrance of the hotel. The hotel restaurant is the open type with no wall. The complimentary breakfast has quite many selections for a three star hotel. Lunch and dinner are quite good. There is also a swimming pool. There is no activity for night life except going to the cemetery. Most guests are Vietnamese. They go there mainly to visit the cemetery.The better beach is the one by the airport with fine sand and crystal clear water. Better yet, you can rent a boat to go to the smaller island and basically have the whole island and beach to yourself. The beach there is beautiful and pristine. There only four guards live on the island to protect the turtles coming to nest there. It is also a good place to snorkel to see the corral surround the side of the island. Beside the Six Sense Resort, this is one of the best and most convenience place to stay on the island.
– “Good place to stay”
I would like to make some correct such as: this ilands located on Vung Tau Provine, Vietnam. This resort did not updated their website for a long time.
Con Dao islands have a lots of beautiful beaches such as: Dam Trau beach, Nhat beach, Lo Voi beach....with more sun, white sand and blue sea. It far away from Hochiminh city about an hour fly.
It is the best relax for someone to hide away with work, noisy....
We stayed here on 5 nights and love this island so much because local men is very friendly, warmly....The resort's service just so so, their breakfast buffet so good around 30 dishes per day.
The beach on front of resort and near the Con Dao prison which was very famous in Vietnam. I think that i will come back and stay here.
– “The good resort with so so service on the most beautiful islands in Vietnam”
Before we went to Con Dao, we read the terrible reviews about this resort and arrived prepared for the worst. However, to our astonishment, this was one of the nicest hotels we have stayed at in Vietnam, and we have traveled the country reasonably extensively!
The hotel offers double rooms in the main complex as well as rooms in smaller villas. We stayed in the main complex, so we can't comment on the rooms in the villas.
Granted, we did not travel to Con Dao during the high season. There were only a few guests and we had the dining area practically to ourselves. Contrary to other reviews, the food was very good overall, despite some weaknesses in the breakfast.
But apart from that, we enjoyed great service and had a beautiful and well equipped room. The location is excellent, right on the beach. What else can I say? Please don't let the bad reviews scare you off. This resort is well worth your money!
