Les hôtes sont d'une extrême gentillesse! Nous avions réservé une chute avec lit double et en voyant que nous avions un enfant il nous a transférer pour une chambre avec 2 lits sans frais! De plus il a pris le temps d'assurer notre transport en bateau jusque l'autre côté de la berge ou 2 taxis scooters nous attendais! Parfait pour se reposer au milieu de la nature!!

Excellent staff, great location”
Very peaceful location and great view of the sunset at the riverfront restaurant. Excellent staff and services. I left something important behind and Mr Chau took great care to ensure that it was sent to me safely and quickly. He turned a potentially disasterous situation into an experience of great services and honesty, one which I appreciate and will never forget. Thank you Mr Chau and Happy Family GH! I will return for sure.

Amazing family ”
By far the best budget accomodation we have ever had. Highlights- food was great. Mekong delta boat trip was not touristy or commercial, an authentic experiance, like a family shopping trip to the market. The resturant is on the river. The pool was AMAZING. There is a room with a/c and a private bathroom but we took a simple room with 2 beds and fans, the shared bathroom had hot water. We travelled with a 2yr old and 4yr old and it sas fine. We planned 2 nights and stayed 4. At check out we were amazed at how little we owed after eating and drinking all our meals there. Thuyan was amazing. She helped us get to and from Happy Family and went above and beyond. Phoning ahead to book ferry for us and getting us a great deal on accomodation. It felt more like staying with family freinds. Lovely experiance. If you are expecting a luxuary resort and spa go elsewhere but if you are after an amazing stay on the mekong river you will not get better than this.

peaceful, tranquil and relaxing”
And breathe... after the big cities in Vietnam this is as peaceful and relaxing as it gets. Right on the river with deck chairs and hammocks everywhere. The swimming pool was fabulous and the wifi was excellent! Food was good and staff friendly and smiling. You need a motorbike taxi to get here, but just call the guesthouse and they will make sure the motorbikes are waiting for you at the ferry. They have bicycles and motorbikes for hire, massage and tours. We loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer.

Beautiful island stay”
Beautiful guesthouse in the most incredible setting. Set far into the Mekong delta, a bit of a challenge to get to (motorbike taxi from the ferry). But if you are looking for a relaxing stay then this is absolutely perfect. With the restaurant overlooking the river, with almost no other people in sight apart from the odd fishing boat, it it the perfect spot to watch the sunset. The food is 5 star and all of the staff are super friendly and helpful. Lovely pool to relax and cool off in and plenty of places to chill or sunbath. Pool table and darts are great for entertainment. Rooms are basic but comfortable and all very clean. Just bring your bug spray and be sure to bring enough cash as we had tried to make a trip to the ATM. Apparently there is only one on the island 7km away. But we couldn't find it and had the a tough time trying to drive a moped around as there's basically no roads just mostly dirt tracks.

Paradise on the Mekong river”
Pro: amazing friendly staff, room, the pool, the social areas, the boat trips, food, free real breakfast, rice wine shot.... Everything was perfect. Good place to relaxing, meet new friends and enjoy the Mekong life style. Con: nothing, except you should love to be lost in the middle of an island.

nice guesthouse, all good except for the floating market tour”
the guesthouse is basic, but nicely located on the riverfront with clean rooms. staff mostly helpful. nice pool. we did the floating market trip with them. by the time we reached the market, there was no action except for the 100 other tourist boats. we asked the day before to go earlier but they told us the market would not open earlier.... factory visit also very touristy. to be honest we would have expected more than the average mass tourism tour and were quite disappointed.

You can't get closer to the Mekong than at this place”
This is a great little accommodation right next to the river. You can't get closer to the Mekong and enjoy the life on the river than here. Several standard rooms and one riverside cottage. I stayed at the cottage. It is quiet basic and slightly overpriced at 40usd per night but I guess you pay for the location and the view. It was clean and the bed was comfortable. Waking up with the sounds coming from the river - priceless. There is a nice swimming pool but I didn't have time to use it. There is also a restaurant and they serve the food on the terrace right next to the river. The food is great and this is a good place to taste the Vietnamese delicacies. The owners, a Finnish-Vietnamese couple, and the whole staff were very friendly and welcoming. I will stay here again on a next Mekong adventure planned for 2018 or 2019, just I think I'll opt for one of the standard rooms this time.

Nice people but not a great stay”
The first thing to say is that the owners, a Finish gentleman and his Vietnamese wife, are lovely. So are the staff. Unfortunately, our stay was spoiled by a two-hour wait for food ('sorry, we were busy/lost your order') and by builders banging and drilling on Sunday morning, including on our balcony by the water until I asked them to please go away. The peace was also shattered by the 7-8 children of other guests. The place should have been relaxing and peaceful but it wasn't. Perhaps we were just unlucky.

We had a lovely stay here. The garden was beautiful and the people were very kind. Only the bathroom was very dirty. And when you want to sit in de sun, there is no place because everwhere is shadow. But if I would go to vinh long again, I would stay here again!!

Quaint ”
Amazing! Wish I had more time to stay. The staff are very friendly and attentive. Cháu and Tống are so nice. As well as the owner Thuy An. The grounds are perfect to to lounge around all day and relax. It's far from the ferry port, but I purposely choose this to experience more of the local feel. The only down side is that is that you are far from tour agencies and limited only to however many guests do a tour from the guesthouse. The food is delish. I loved everything. I biked around the quaint towns and visited the Cao Dai temple. It should not be missed .

Lovely Guesthouse on the Mekong”
Arriving on the island via Motorbike 'taxi', [an adventure in itself], the kind & helpful owner, sunset from the riverfront restaurant.
We had a wonderful few days there for New Year's celebration- wish we had planned for more. Dropping down into rural delta life was a real life treat, especially in contrast to the Saigon we had just left behind. We enjoyed the fruits and flowers, a dip in the pool, and the interesting International group who had also stopped there. The owner arranged a very early morning boat trip for us. Floating on the Mekong as morning came was magical. There was a sweetness there in all the staff that I reallly appreciate. But their English is pretty sketchy, a problem in the restaurant and with the 'guide' on our trip.
