    Very good in general, quality room facility with a pretty low price, recommend for family, conference. their restaurant was under constructing by the time we visit, but an outdoor coffee shop play well as a backup place.

    i loved it so much i came back. draw cards are the 5star service, fabulous variety at breakfast which you can work off at the best hotel gym i've been too. views are breath taking particularly from the 28th floor bar, both day and night. loved how they had staff who would walk you across the road to go to the beach.

    Empty Hotel & Away From City Centre”
    Nice Views towards the beach, Rooms very clean, Strong Free Wifi
    From the online pictures this hotel looks great. However, the hotel itself looks pretty old inside the hallways and lobby. Rooms are very clean and neat though. There's a pool & GYM on the 1st floor. Pool is dirty and looks like it is rarely ever used. I expected a lot more people at this hotel (19 floors) but was surprised to see probably only a handful of other guests. Hotel felt very cold and empty. Breakfast is provided but the selection is rather limited. Congee, duck eggs, spaghetti and the daily special (pho/banh xeo/bun nuoc etc). Hotel's location is far away from anything. Surrounding streets are empty as they are under development and will be for years. Staff were "professional" rathern that friendly. Requests were provided quickly but I wouldn't label it "service with a smile". Would not recommend this hotel. Although there was nothing majorly wrong with it. You can find better value hotels for a lot cheaper and closer to the shopping area/night life.

    The hotel room was good. Staff was helpful. Issues are . with 18 floors and only 2 elevator, the wait can be long for an elevator. . food at dinner was below what one would expect from such a hotel. Breakfast was usually OK, not great.

    pleasant surprise”
    great view, nice rooms
    We have spent only one night at Sea Light Hotel but it was a pleasant surprise. It was a good deal and we had enjoyed a wonderful evening and night on the 15th floor. so the hotel condition will improve. And I hope that there will be hot water all day long in the near future.The business center looked but one computer worked, so what. The breakfast was above average, we hated the view of the tiny little fried birds in the rice noodle nest though. The staff was very friendly.

    Large Room Size
    only a few staff members spoke english well enough to help us with our questions, these staff members were very helpful and bent over backwards to help us. very disappointed that the pool was not working. the restaurant was not able to provide what we ordered and we had to re-choose multiple times. the tap in the shower needed to be running for 10 minutes before hot water came out. but apart from these 3 points the room was reasonably priced. the staff tried very hard to make our stay pleasant as they could sense we were not entirely happy with the pool situation and restaurant. i do hope they sort it out as this hotel has potential.

    Confy stay at Rach Gia”
    Comfortable bed, quiet and location
    Hotel is very basic without a swimming pool or a 24 hour coffee house. There is no buffet breakfast, just a set menu for you to choose from at a cafe located at the hotel grounds. Anyway there are many eateries around that area, mostly by the seaside. Overall the stay was comfortable one, and bed was really comfy. The Standard room is not very large but the TV has many channels to occupy my kid. Room was also quiet which allowed us to rest after a long day touring the place. Overall no regrets booking this place for the price I paid.

    The cool breeze coming from the ocean nearby.
    Hotel was under staffed, they didn't even know we were coming and our rooms weren't ready when we arrived. Rooms were dirty and bed sheets were old, I think many of the levels aren't even in use anymore. Breakfast in the morning took a long time and there's nothing open nearby at night on the streets but the Metro.

    Nice looking rooms but that's about it!”
    Nice sized rooms
    The room was nice, spacious and clean but other than that we would not recommend this hotel at all. The staff, though friendly, had poor English, and although this usually would not be a major issue it made life very difficult when it came to resolving many problems that we had. For example, our room key did not work and we ended up locked out of our room a few times. We were told it would be fixed but when we tried to enter our room we found it was still broken. When we reported this we were told to sit in reception and wait while they phoned an engineer to come fix it. After waiting for quite a while we complained that we needed to get into our rooms immediately as it was getting dark and the mosquitoes were starting to bite! They did not understand. We said we wanted another room with a working key, they did not understand. Eventually this issue was resolved, but when we got to our room we found there was no hot water. We rang down to complain, they did not understand!!! Things continued along these lines when it came to ordering food and drinks also, it was slightly exhausting. As for the location, it was out of the main town and surrounded by construction sites, not much to do or see. We had booked for two nights but left after one. We did not ask for a refund for the unused night as we were sure they would "not understand" and life is too short! If you're thinking of booking, do yourself a favour and don't....

    Okay at best”
    Brilliant friendly staff!
    we stayed here for one night before taking the ferry to phu quoc island. the hotel room was okay a couple of water stains on the walls and decor looked quite dated. the bathroom finish was poor...plastering left on tiles and a bit of mould. sadly no hot water when we stayed either. we were early for breakfast as we needed to catch our ferry however that wasn't a problem for them, breakfast was standard we ordered scrambled eggs and sausages, the bread we were given was gorgeous though so fresh. :) however there were a couple of pesky ants on the table. all in all it was do-able when catching the ferry but all credit to the staff they are so friendly and always have a smile on their faces!

    Comfortable room size (superior deluxe), very friendly and helpful staff, prompt taxi's, air conditioned
    Overall value for money, rooms comfortable size and clean however some finishes on the room could have had more attention to detail (plumbing not that great however in our particular room everything seemed to function), wardrobe had wet rot but there was other space to place closing items etc. Pool was good (however on one day in the afternoon they decided to drain it and not notify guests), gym equipment not that great but useable however if you exercise early before breakfast there is no air conditioning. Buffet was average and seemed clean. This hotel is value for money and the staff spoke some English.

    Fancy yes, welcoming no.”
    The room was fairly clean
    I'm going to be honest - I didn't feel comfortable at this hotel. We stayed to get the ferry to Phu Quoc but I booked two nights so we could get to know the town. When I first entered the hotel's revolving doors the bell boy wasn't looking and squished me! It gave me a fright and hurt a bit but he was very sorry. An accident I understand but geez! As an english speaking foreigner we did not feel welcome here. Perhaps it was because our previous hotels had been so wonderful and staff were so friendly that this hotel had a lot to live up to. It was all very fancy looking inside, with 16 floors. The room was nice but no hot water. When we asked about hiring scooters, the staff did try to help but ended up telling us 'We're not like Ho Chi Minh, that service is not available here.' (In other words this place isn't for tourists) So we tried to hire a bicycle (which was in the hotel book) and again we were told the service was not available. So in the end we just walked. In the restaurant we tried very politley to communicate with the waitress but got nothing more than a blank look.. not even a smile. For breakfast we went to get our free brekkie and there was no service, we had to ask for a menu then ask where to order and they had run out of bread and eggs. Looking at what I've written I guess I do sound a bit whingy but it really was akward for us here. Compared to every where else we stayed it was our least favourite. We didn't use the gym or the pool.
