Beautiful location on the beach near Phan Thiet City. The hotel runs a shuttle back and forth that is very convenient. Our king-size bed was huge and the room was very clean and everything was in perfect working order. Lovely shower and the balcony was very comfortable. The hotel pool was very nice and the hotel restaurant was pretty good and has a great breakfast buffet. The resort is perfectly maintained and quite lovely.
Only three things I didn't like: 1. The second night we were there they were hosting some party for Vietnam Petroleum that used the whole pool area and kept us from swimming. They also played music that was so ridiculously loud our waitress couldn't hear us order and it was even obnoxious in our room quite far away (and I'm young). This was probably a one-time thing and it only lasted from 6-9 or so. 2. The ocean wasn't very clean (some sort of algae or something) and smelled kind of bad. Also, fishing boats frequently came into the swimming area, which is pretty dangerous if you think about it. It was kind of interesting to see what they were catching though. 3. The hotel staff's English is pretty limited. We asked for help about train or bus tickets and they could only tell us "one in the morning, one in the afternoon" so we ended up sitting at a bus station for 4 hours. Still, the shuttle bus driver took us to the station (past his destination), and I'd say overall the staff and resort were lovely.

I loved my stay at the cliff and regret not being able to stay longer! Booked one night here after having a terrible hotel experience in Vung Tau and coming to Mui Ne a day early. Upon my arrival i was greeted with a delicious welcome drink and straight away felt like i'd arrived in Paradise. The hotel was beautiful with incredible views of the coast line and huge amazing swimming pools to enjoy. Everything was well maintained and clean. We had a twin room overlooking the pool and it was stunning. It had a huge bathroom with an amazing shower and a balcony to enjoy the fresh air. The staff were amazing and very kind- any time you were sitting in the lobby they would bring you out a drink. Breakfast was the biggest spread of food i have come across in a hotel in my life- incredible- and the eating area overlooks the pool and coastline. it really is just stunning!
The only downside was the location being a bit too far out from the main shopping/tourist area- but if you dont mind paying for a taxi or just want to stay and enjoy the resort that isn't a problem!
"Great location, good midweek off peak destination."
We were very happy with everything, we were upgraded into a deluxe room, good size, great view of beach,pools and very well maintained gardens, the down side was we had money stolen from our room( it was tucked inside a camera case- they only took the U.S money, left the Aus$$) and also underwear????. When we spoke to Reception, he pretty much blew us off and that was the end of it. A big downer to an otherwise lovely place. All the other staff were fabulous!!!!
We were met by the hotel staff and received of our luggage immediately. The check in was done at a coffee tAble with a welcome drink. The manager then came to welcome us and we were then taken to our room. Although the hotel was larger than we expected the staff did appear to recognise us and our particular needs at breakfast and at happy hour!
The location is fairly decent. Its not in a prime location to the main city but is still a beautiful place thats close to the beach. Nothing bad to say about the hotel itself because it was great.
I was in the process of recommending this place to my fellow colleagues but the bad customer experience trumps the wonderful experiences about this place. If you do plan to go, please be careful of the hidden fees. Its better to go into the city and eat (cheaper and more fulfilling). I have never been so upset with customer service as I am a very pleasant guy but this one takes the cake. For them to make a couple of extra dollars in hidden fees, they have lost several thousand dollars that they could have had based on my recommendations to colleagues alone.
Overall, if you do still plan to go, just be careful is all i can say. It really is a beautiful place but the bad/shady customer service ruined it for me.
Really enjoyed our stay in a beachfront bungalow - loved the outdoor shower!
The beach out front wasn't suitable for swimming, but the sound of the waves was fantastic and the Affinity Swimming pool was amazing, so the beach was not an issue.
