Tips for you
My husband and I recently spent a few days (and the New Year's holiday) in Phu Quoc, and stayed at the Sasco Blue Lagoon. Previous Trip Advisor reviews prepared us well for the pros and cons of this resort and we agree with most of what has been said. Pros: Location of the hotel - in the heart of the tourist strip, within walking distance of the Night Market and many other restaurants. You can walk along the beach or on the main road. Excellent beach - by far one of the largest of any of the beachfront resorts on Phu Quoc. Plenty of lounge chairs, towels, and a lovely little café that serves Vietnamese and Western dishes, cocktails, juices, etc all day. Kayaks are also available through the resort. The pool was lovely too though we spent all our time at the beach. My only issue with the beach is that the hotel should keep the area lit in the evening and perhaps consider keeping the bar open for sundowners or evening cocktails, for hotel guests - as many other resorts along the beach do. We also had no issues with the staff at all - they were all quite nice and friendly, would make me drinks that were not on the menu, accommodated a late check out even though they were fully booked, etc. Overall, the hotel is a good value for money. Cons: we stayed in the main hotel building, in a double room on the 2nd floor. Keep in mind there is no elevator, only stairs. The hotel does need some updating in decorations. However our room was clean, the bed was comfortable, fresh linens daily. We also had a lovely terrace which we enjoyed. But in the end, our room was more of a place to sleep, than to lounge and enjoy. Some new decorations and a fresh paint job throughout the main hotel building would be a MASSIVE improvement, and something for the hotel management to consider as many new resorts are under development on the island. The villas surrounding the hotel looked absolutely adorable, especially the more recently renovated ones by the pool. The breakfast was not so great. The Western selections on offer are confusing - spaghetti bolognaise, steak, and other dishes I'd expect at a dinner service. However, there was a fresh fruit station, a cook on hand to make omelets and eggs to order, and fresh bread so we were happy the 2 days we ate there. Other mornings we ate at Buddy's and Alanis Deli - which were delicious.
