We stayed here with our 2 children aged 5 and 3 and had a wonderful holiday. I chose the resort (based on Trip Advisor reviews) as a place to spend our main holiday after I had been working in Ho Chi Minh City for a week.

We booked one of the 3 double roomed wooden villas and were allocated the one next to the beach restaurant - not noisy in the least and the villa which is most popular with ex pat families with young kids according to an Aussie family we met.

Such a wonderful view from the balcony - watching the fishing boats come in in the morning or watching the waves in the evening (with wine from the shop opposite the hotel) watching the waves roll in.

Strangely enough we found an Indian Restaurant on the strip- Garnesh- which served the best curries. The kids liked the Italian restaurant next door to the Indian called Good Morning Vietnam.

Tip - the train which operates daily from HCMC to Phan Thiet may take longer but it's much cheaper than a taxi and is much less hair raising!!!

My wife and I stayed in 3 hotels over a week long stay in the Mui Ne area. Coco Beach was unquestionably the nicest and the beach the most spectacular. All the rooms are small bungalos and they are just perfect. The staff was super helpful and the onsite upstairs restaurant was very good and reasonable. Can't be beat!

We stayed for six days in April. It's a lovely hotel - the rooms are all little cabins on stilts, very clean and big enough to take an extra bed. The pool was clean and attractive with plenty of sunbeds. True, the drinks were pricier than bars outside but not excessive (it was easy enough to nip to the supermarket over the road and buy a few beers to drink on the verandah overlooking the sea).

The staff members were pleasant and unobtrusive and the bill was correct when I received it. We ate in the hotel quite a lot - it was so peaceful we didn't want to leave even including a trip to the sand dunes it didn't come to more than about $300 US.

thought this was great little place we stayed here for 3 nights and could not fault it. Its a bit expensive for backpackers but well worth it for the staff and views. Cabins are amazing and we could not complain about anything. Previous post giving it 1 star because the town of Mui ne is boring should really have researched first. Mui ne is more for relaxing, Nha trang is more the party town

When we were planning our two month trip through Vietnam and Cambodia we decided to build in some ‘beach time’. We scheduled this break to coincide with the TET celebrations.

We selected Coco Beach based on a combination of Trip Advisor and travel book comments. It was a great choice. We poked our noses into a few of the other resorts during our stay and both agreed that Coco suited us the best. It has an idyllic setting and the individual bungalows give you a great sense of privacy. It is a fairly small resort, so has an intimate yet casual atmosphere. The grounds and beach area immaculately maintained. All the staff members were amazing with their sunny smiles and helpful ways. We have never seen such a high staff/guest ratio. We were well looked after.

I only have one negative comment and that is about the limited internet access, as they only have one computer for guest use. These days everyone keeps in touch via e-mail and there was always someone waiting to use it. They need at least one more computer.

99.99% of the comments on this resort are very positive and there is no point repeating the same info, so I thought I would make some related comments.

Coco Beach caters to more mature couples (mainly European), to families with toddlers and to ex-pat families living in Saigon. This is definitely not a party spot and probably would not appeal to older teenagers and young adults. However, the kite surfing school is very close by and this activity is very popular with younger people. The beach was very windy and the surf was quite high during the time we were there, with lots of action happening out on the water. If we wanted peace and quiet we hung out by the pool.

At Mui Ne beach (in general) you feel like you have been dumped in the middle of ‘anywhereville’. The only local people you see are the ones serving you in the restaurants and stores. Some resorts cater to the ‘fly and flop’ crowd whose only glimpse of Vietnam is this beach strip with its restaurants and shops. Such a shame really as Vietnam has so much to offer and is a wonderful country to travel in. Most guests at Coco beach seemed to be like us, people travelling throughout the whole country.

Although we did eat outside the resort on several occasions, for the most part we ate dinner at their Paradise Beach Club and lunch at the Beach Bar. The food was equally as good if not better than outside and their prices only a $1 or so higher. Plus we got to listen to and look at the sea rather than be in restaurants full of people chattering away in Russian, German or French. We ate in the fine dining restaurant one night and although the food was very good we preferred the Paradise Beach Club. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of items catering to all nationalities.

Because we stayed with them for quite a while on our last night we got a ‘thank you’ bottle of champagne and plate of appetizers, which we thought was a very nice gesture. Also my husband’s birthday occurred whilst we were there and they give him a gift of a t shirt. It’s the little touches that make the difference. We would most definitely stay at the Coco Beach Resort again if we had the opportunity to return to this area.
