    Great service !

    Rooms are ery clean with a very pleasant service both for the room and at the restaurant. Nice bed and comfortable room (ocean view). Restaurant not gastronomic but good value for money. I have really appreciated that leaving at 4 PM, the manager allowed me to take a shower before my flight. They provide me with a clean room at no cost for the shower and thank to it I was really confortable for the flight. This is really a great service, very customer oriented.

    We couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay! First off, the staff were amazing; nothing was a problem for them, they're so friendly, helpful...just beautiful people. The open air restaurant is cool, food is amazing and great price. Love the bar, great range of drinks. Pool is good. Our room was a bit small but who needs space when all the adventures are outside! Quick walk to town. Great location. No road noise. I’ll be back 100%

    Noisy room next to the pool/bar and sand in the bedsheets. Only positive was that they provided early morning breakfast if you needed to leave early.

    Pleasant stay

    Moorings hotel is situated in the front of the bay with beautiful views, amazing sunsets and is only a short walk into the town centre. We stayed in a poolside room, with just a couple of steps from room to pool. Comfy beds and good air conditioning, however the WiFi is something to be desired, very slow at best of times and disconnects often. The hotel restaurant was excellent, continental breakfast had a good selection of food, lunch has great value options for 1300 VT including a drink. Happy hour is from 5pm to 7pm and dinner is also excellent (we loved the seafood curry!). Overall we had a pleasant stay and would return.

    Nice place by the beach, can be a little bit noisy as the rooms are right by the restaurant and bar area but I would stay again.
