With 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.
We visited this resort last year with friends and we did enjoy our stay here. Upon arriving, we were served with some welcome drinks.
There was plenty of space to play around this resort.
The pool is huge with an area for kids to play too.
The place has way too much space. 🙂
The dining area is breezy ——-
with windows offering a spectacular view of the beach —-
If you want to bask in the sun, you can opt to dine outside —-
Am not too happy with the ala carte menu though because it can get quite expensive but the breakfast buffet spread is actually pretty good with Western and Vietnamese options.
Our room, like everywhere else is spacious too! We’ve got the king-size bed.
The room had a balcony so its well lighted —
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.
