Allez Boo Resort

 photo IMG_1216_zps678fa9c2.jpgWith the long weekend upon us, I’m pretty sure a lot are scrambling to get out of Saigon or find some place for a much needed R&R.

The usual suspects are usually the nearest Saigon — like Vung Tau and Mui Ne. If you’re thinking of going to Vung Tau, be warned that it does get pretty crowded and you may want to drive a bit further to Long Hai Beach. A few years back, we stayed at Long Hai Beach Resort next to Anoasis Resort.

For Mui Ne, we’ve tried, Mui Ne Resort by The Sinh Tourist, Blue Ocean Resort, The Cliff Resort,  and Allez Boo Resort. Have no idea why I haven’t gotten around sharing about Allez Boo.

It’s actually a pretty good sized resort along Nguyen Dinh Chieu Street.

The place has way too much space. 🙂

The dining area is breezy ——-

However, the room was not that well maintained because chips of paint were falling off and for some reason, our room had lots of ants. When I ordered from a local restaurant, they wouldn’t allow delivery initially to our room when I really couldn’t go down because my son was sleeping then. But they relented eventually.

Another thing I didn’t like was that since Allez Boo’s accommodations are pretty segmented, there’s no connecting roof to the different areas. And when we visited in August last year, there were times that it rained in the evening and we all had to run to our rooms hoping not to get wet. It would have been nice if the attendant were proactive in helping us with umbrellas but no, we had to fend for ourselves.

Service then was overall okay but nothing spectacular. The place holds so much promise and I hope their service is much much better now.

Will I come back here? Honestly, after experiencing a real good vacation in The Cliff, I’d much rather spend money there. However, because its new, The Cliff does offer better accommodations.
