Wonderful! A family run hotel in a beach side street with such a warm community feel. Absolutely wonderful people. Loved the sea, and sand though the beach is suffering erosion so not the place if you want pristine corporate experience, but I couldn't have been happier. Owner and staff so kind and attentive...the whole street put together a street party with traditional music performance, dj, free food and drink and what must have been a kind-hearted loss. Every visitor was bowled over.
Little did we know that our initial 2 week stay would turn into a 5 month stay in Vietnam due to the virus pandemic. We could not have chosen a better place to stay! The owner has been more than helpful in his natural hostpitality; assisting us in every aspect of life here. He introduced us to several local markets, helped in our Visa extensions, loaned us his motorbike and worked with me to look into possible employment opportunities in Vietnam. The entire staff have been great! The Villa is always clean and the owner holds the staff to high standards. The location is perfectly situated in an area of the beach that is private while still offering places to eat the local cuisine nearby. I would highly recommend Santa Sea Vila to you!
It took nearly 1 hour from Da Nang airport to Santa Sea Hoi An Villa. The hotel offered round trip car pickup from airport to the Villa. First impression was pink bougainvillea in front of the villa. Tuan and the dog named Panda went out to welcome us warmly. Our room is well fitted furnitures with great ocean view. The beach is the best - blue, clean and quiet. Beach name is Tan Thanh. I used to swim at Cua Dai or An Bang but once I swam at Tan Thanh, I never want to come back those beaches. . We were servered Quang noodles in the morning. That was delicous! We only stayed in Hoi An swim, eat and relax. Hoi An during Covid 19 period was as quiet as Hoi An 30 years ago. The villa owner - Mr. Viet and his staffs well took care of us. I definetely introduce this villa for my friends who are planning to travel Hoi An very soon. Cheers, Phuong Nguyen,…
We have just returned from 9 nights at Santa Sea. We can reiterate what everyone has said in previous comments. Big rain shower, bright large rooms, great breakfast, beach towels, own sun beds on beach. The list goes on. Viet & his staff are the best. Loved the quiet beach area too. I have to mention the Yang Yang beach bar, great food & cold cheap beers. The girl (who’s name we didn’t get) always had a lovely smile & infection giggle. We didn’t travel in the best of times, with establishments in Hoi An, closing daily, during our stay, due to the threat of CVirus, however this didn’t spoil our stay, as we were very well looked after, there. 2 days before we were due to leave, our flight home was cancelled by the airline. Viet was an absolute godsend. He calmly took over, with a smile, on our behalf, due to language barrier, & our phones unable to be used in Vietnam. He contacted the airline & booked us another flight home, including an internal flight via Hanoi. We can’t thank you enough. We will be back Chris & David …
Beautifully spacious and well set up rooms with wonderful sea views from your balcony. Comfortable beds and fabulous large bathrooms with huge bath and rain shower head. Such a wonderful welcoming,peaceful hotel. The pool was well maintained. They gave us an excellent rate on money exchange far better than the town or bank. The breakfast has great variety. Jian was so gracious and helpful. Great area with lots of eateries and bars. Do not miss this beautiful place. So sad to leave
Wonderful stay at a very well cared for property. The hotel is ideally located 50 yards off a beautiful and quiet beach , with it's own beach chairs and umbrellas. The staff were all helpful, especially Hien, whose English is excellent. The owner made us feel welcome and knows the Hoi An area well. Some specifics: Exchange money at the hotel, it's easy and the rate beats the airport and old town exchanges. Room safe provided. Pool and rooms very clean and attractive. Breakfast is well done. Book the hotels excellent pick-up/drop off service from the airport. Great location close to restaurants and a 5 minute cab ride to Old Town. Thank you to Santa Sea. This was our first visit and we will return.
We traveled with our 2 kids and my mom. The hotel is located across the beach and 10mn car ride from the old quarter so you can enjoy the historical site and the beach at the same time. The rooms are basic but clean. The staff was absolutely wonderful. The owner lives on site and he wants to make sure that you have a memorable stay. Thank you to the staff!
The front desk was very helpful, offered services and accurate prices. The owner Viet is very nice and caring, always in a great mood. The breakfast was great.(all you can eat). They had beach chairs and towels available. They also upgraded us to a top floor beach view free of charge!(the view was great). Beers in the fridge are fairly priced compared to the surrounding establishments its much cheaper and a very good restaurant across the steeet.(lucky beach restaurant) overall it was a great 5 day stay at Santa Villa Hoi An, would recommend!
This was my second time saying at Santa Villa in Hoi An and I will stay there again when I return. As a solo traveller who wanted to stay on the beach, the location is perfect. The rooms are great and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is clean, they have bicycles to use and there are some great restaurants and bars across the road. I stayed a week this time, the only problem was that I couldn't stay for longer!
Our friend recommended Santa Sea to us and we are so grateful that she did. Our stay was only short - 4 days, and we were so sad to leave. The hotel has a family friendly feel to it. Room are spacious and impeccably clean. Breakfast was very good providing both buffet and cooked to order items. Location is perfect - a little away from the noisy side of the beach, with plenty of restaurants and bars and an excellent spa right across the road. Although the beach was only across the road, we enjoyed the pool amenities on several occasions. Staff were ever so friendly and obliging - our favorite was the young lady on reception - she had a great sense of humor. Excellent value for money. We miss you already.
