clean and simple with a great view. On back beach which is nice since theres not so much going on which creates a nice lazy slow moving feel.

I and my friends from Canada stay in this hotels in january last year, when we are back from the night sightseeing, we got drunk so that we do not lock the room. Tomorrow morning all of my 3 rooms is lost all the stuffs including 2 iphone, 1 sony ecrikson, 1 Blackberry & 2 laptops and US$3000 as well. When i call the security and come to reception to report the thief they try to postpone the time and say that they will call the police to come. We request to see the camera for the last night but they do not accept and they say they will call the police to come and will let us see the camera with the witness of the police. I report around 7am, but the police come at 11am and the owner of the hotels come to the office and say that the camera is broken so they can not show the camera. After that 15 minute, we receive the information from the Housekeeping that our wallet is find out at the garbage bin on the 5th floor, but they can not see who put in it, and the location of the garbage bin is opposite to the camera. I check with reception the total occupied during last night and they say that only 4 room. 3 of us & 1 from French, but i am sure that the French is not because when we back to the lobby they are checking out. With all that evidence, the owner come to us and request the privately meeting. In the meeting they say that, they will pay back to us around US$50/1 person and they are free the room charge for us, we do not accept and make noise in the meeting room. They calm us down and they go out, after that they call the police and report that we spoil and break down their hotel. We go with the police to the police station and receive the same talk with the hotels.
We do not accept and the police said that they will investigate and come back to us soon. We got no time to stay and waiting for their feed back. We are lost but that is very expensive experience in this hotel. I note down this to remind of whom intending to stay here. Hope that you are very best trip in Vietnam!!

Room tip: Do not stay in this unless you are rich

We booked a room at this hotel at the last minute, choosing it because of it's low price and location on "back beach". We were extremely happy with our decision and ended up extending our stay from one night to three nights.

Like others have posted, the structure of the hotel makes it such that almost every room has a great view of the beach. The front of the hotel is narrow, but the building runs deep into the alley behind. There are no other tall buildings next to it beach-side and most rooms will be able to get a clear view of the beach. We stayed on the eight floor in a room next to the lift and with a clear view of the beach, had no problems waking up every morning!

The staff of the hotel were in general also pleasant, accommodating to our requests for extra towels and laundry services. We would like to especially commend the security staff working on the basement level of the building. During our stay, they were ever so helpful, assisting us with the rental of a motorbike for our day trips and volunteering to help park the bikes when high traffic made it tricky. Even though we could not communicate much verbally, their ever-present smiles made all interactions with them enjoyable.

As for the hotel restaurant, we did not eat there apart from breakfast. During the week, those looking for an international spread might be disappointed since they only offer two choices: American or Continental. The former comes with eggs and toast, and the latter fresh fruits and cereal. There is a large option of local choices if one desires, although we did not try them. At the weekend, the breakfast morphs into a buffet spread, with the masses of local tourists presumably making it worthwhile to make large quantities of food. The weekend breakfast buffet spread is good, featuring a selection of local food, along with fresh local herbs, spices and salads. There is also a wider selection of fresh fruits.

Overall we were very very pleased with our selection. The location of the hotel is excellent; just cross the four lane roads right at the hotel's door step and you are on the beach. Being near the end of "back beach", this segment is also quieter. Breakfast was simple or good, depending on whether you were staying during a weekday or weekend. Rooms were bright and clean with an excellent view. A note to foreign visitors though: Ocean Star seems to cater mainly to local tourists and as such, many of the staff such as the security guards and chambermaids do not speak english well, if at all. Bring a notebook and pen. Writing and drawing goes some ways to helping you bridge the communication gap.

We would definitely stay here again if we return to Vung Tau.

Miscellaneous tips:

1. Renting a motorbike is cheap and almost necessary to enjoy the streets of Vung Tau and for those looking to explore the coastline independently. Taxis are expensive in Vung Tau.

2. It is possible to kite-surf, wind-surf, paddle and even plain old surf on the waves in Vung Tau. Conditions though are erratic and a storm with winds blowing towards the beach from the seas might help. Vung Tau Beach Club has rental equipment for these activities and at last visit, are run by Europeans (Russians?).

Room tip: Most rooms have sea view. Just ask when booking.

Not much reviews on this hotel, but i think its a great location, near to tour operators and restaurant . There are travel agency and massage shop around the hotel. We stayed at the lowest category room, and it exceeded our expectation. Location was quiet and convenient. There are rooms also facing directly to the sea. Room is spacious and very clean, definitely will recommend to anyone. But the receptionists do not speak very good english

This hotel is located on the south end of the back beach so if you want easy access to the restaurants and bars this hotel is not for you. I paid $31 a night for 3 nights. This is a new hotel and all facilities like a/c, lift, wi-fi work well. I had a comfortable sized room but the best aspect was the view north along the full length of the beach. And I could open the window for fresh air. I rented a motorbike to make it easier to get around, but I enjoyed swimming at the beach opposite the hotel. Breakfast has a couple of choices and is adequate. The staff are attentive but not very engaging as they have limited English. This hotel suited me and I would definitely stay here again.
