This place looks a lot better than it is. Expect plenty of clunkiness - it extends well beyond the name. The price is fair though and options in Quy Nhon are limited. Take a seaview room.

At the southern end of Quy Nhon's main beach. 2kms from town with good access to restaurants.


Review

Some resorts start well and fail with execution. At first look, the Royal Hotel and Healthcare Resort does a reasonable job portraying itself as a quality international standard resort; nice beach location, modern style layout, spacious rooms with timber floors, great views etc etc.

The name gives the first clue to things being amiss. Scratch the surface and the cracks begin to appear. It's only a few years old but the building is already falling into disrepair and the staff are in need of a pep talk.

If you're ready to put aside the expectations of service that the look of this place creates, you may well have a perfectly pleasant stay. And downtown Quy Nhon is not oversupplied with options.

If this place does ever get the service and the other details right, they'll be rightly charging lots more than they do now. But that seems like a big if.

All up, it's not bad value for money.

Pack your patience and a sense of humour and remember you're not paying 5 star rates either.

Someone needs to tell the owners that a "healthcare" resort conjures wholly different images of medical activity than do words like "wellness" or "health spa". As I said, it's all in the detail.

If you decide to stay here, the slight premium on seaview rooms is worth paying.


Brief
Breakfast, pool, wifi of mixed reliability and more
