Its a nice place to stay. You can get to the beach if you go to the left from the hotel. If you go to the right you will find Bo Ke - chain of near the sea nice seafood restaurants. So if you have some means of transportation or dont mind walking a lot or taking taxis (they are very cheap and there are plenty of them) this could be a good choice. The downside in room 3: - almost not working aircon but there was a huge celing fan and with open window that worked fine for me; - wifi was not really working in the room but it was working well outside of the room Personnel was very polite and helpful, room was small but very clean, breakfast was good. Overall I had a good experience with this hotel. Hope this helps. Hope this helps you:)
We really enjoyed our 2 nights at Shades. Every single person working there was absolutely wonderful. So friendly and accommodating. Our room was very clean with a lovely ocean view. The location is nice, in the middle of the main strip with tons of shops/restaurants nearby. Breakfast is fairly simple, but very fresh and delicious. There isn’t really a beach directly in front of the hotel (there is a breakwall to prevent erosion) but you don’t have to go far in either direction to get more sand. The pool/patio area is really nice with lounge chairs, umbrellas and hammocks Highly recommend this boutique property over any of the larger resorts nearby. It was the perfect spot to relax after traveling around the country for 3 weeks.
Room offered was large but very cheaply furnished not really an apartment as advertised moe a bedroom with a hot plate and a sink. Beach was there but with the tide in....not really. For the location this should have been back packer pricing and certainly not put in competition with real hotels which this was not. If we had paid £15 per night I could not really complain but we didn’t we paid 4* rates We refused to stay there and got moved to one of the 30 or moe real 4*resorts in mui me for very little extra considering the short notice where we were provided a luxury bungalow that on its own was at least 25% of the size othe whole of the shades forgive me but I couldn’t in my wildest dreams call it a resort. All other 4* hotels here appear to be as described
Shades is a wonderful, peaceful little resort in central Mui Ne. The host/manager is extremely nice and interesting to talk with. He took time to learn us a bit of vietnamese og told us very interesting things on Vietnam. A great memory of a wonderful man that made us feel at home in Mui Ne. Lovely luxury apartment and best bed I ever tried abroad. The beach is no longer a beach in front of the resort, but no problem: The terrasse is wonderful. And breakfast too. And walking to the beach is only five minutes. Mostly to the NZ owners: All three available Wifi works extremely poor in apartment seven, and the door key needs to be changed. When you use the shower, the hole floor gets soaking wet because the construction is wrong.
Shades Resort offers 10 rooms. We had a poolside studio apartment which was large, clean and had cooking facilities for your convenience (microwave, fridge, utensils and crockery). It is in a spectacular location,literally ON the beach and with sweeping views. The bed was super large and comfortable. There was ample storage space, a desk, bedside tables and lamps. TV reception was a bit wonky but there were several channels showing films in English with Vietnamese subtitles, also BBC & CNN. Air con was extremely effective and the internet connection was good. Nice bathroom, water could have been a tad hotter for my taste and the towels were enormous and changed every day. Breakfast was simple and adequate and basically the same every day. Eggs & bacon, pancakes and pho…
