Furama Resort Danang
68 Ho Xuan Huong Street, China Beach, Da Nang, Vietnam
beware of charges
Lat year I took my family to Furama for vacation. Upon check-out we noticed that a charges for telephone were over $US 500. WOW!!! These were a local calls to a Mobil phone in VN that last over 8 hours.
After review the charges carefully, these phone calls ware made when we out sight seeing, having lunch, dinner....Nothing make sense. We called the Mobil phone in VN to clarify if anyone talking to him over the phone from our room, of course there is NONE. Beside he said his Mobil battery could not last more than 1 hr of talk time.
After 1/2 discussion with the cashier, the hotel manager came out and talk to us. Again, he insisted that these calls were made from our room, I have to explained to him once again. Another 1/2 hour went by, he finally agreed not to charge us on these calls.
Lond story short, we missed our flight, spent a night at the Sandy Beach Hotel, service is much better here and the hotel manager is much smarter.
Unique Quality: Nice Hotel on the beach
a 5 star star resort
the resort is probably the best one in da nang at the moment.
it's located by the beach and some rooms has view to the beach and some to the garden.
it has 2 swimming pool and wireless internet connection is avaiable at the lounge.
the restaurant has asian and italian cuisine and the staffs are very friendly.
Unique Quality: it has sushi for the breakfast!!
Directions: the road between da nang and hoi an
Private beach just for you !
The greatest resort you can find in Danang which is far from the city centre about 7 km. Lovely and quiet beach, with a great accommodation.
Don't have dinner here
They're not staffed for dinner as most patrons go to town for their meals. The service at dinner was the worst during my 3 weeks stay in VN . Never saw much of our waiter so simple tasks such as getting another drink took some more efforts than warranted at this 5 star resort.
Service at the included breakfast buffet was good however.
More about Furama Resort Danang
We spent a week at the Furama resort in Da Nang (September 5 to September 12, 2007) and had a wonderful time there. The hotel is just as marvellous as it is presented on its website. Wonderfully spacious swimming pools, a beautiful sandy beach, very good restaurants, spacious rooms, very good service and very friendly staff made our stay unforgettable.
I can only recommend this beautiful place!
No way 5 stars!
My wife and I were staying 2 weeks in mid-June along the coast of Vietnam - Hue, Hoi An and Danang. Danang was our last stop and we had
booked for 5 nights at the Furama Resort Hotel Danang, based on reviews. Although the Furama was the highest priced of the 3 hotels where we stayed it was by far the worst. From check in until checkout
the service was non existent. The food was acceptable although it was
of low quality and it was very overpriced. An example was an appetizer of 4 boiled shrimp for US$12! Because of the extremely poor
service and quality we decided to return home 3 nights early, although or room had been prepaid. We decided it was better to lose the money than tolerate poor service and quality! I shall never recommend this hotel to anyone, even my worst enemy!
Our travel agent booked us into the Furama resort as a base from which to explore the area - at the same time being a bit of a place to tke a rest half way through our rather demanding schedule in Vietnam. We are not beach types.
Our room is large and well equipped although the free internet proves that you get what you pay for - ie not very much!! I would agree that the food is generally disappointing, rather a problem when there is no alternative nearby.
In all, we felt the isolated location of the hotel to be the main problem. It appears that the Furama have had it all to themselves for far too long and have become complacent. The beach is lovely and the situation ideal - so the arrival of three more large resorts that we can see (and surely more in the planning stages) should ensure that standards will need to be addressed before long.
We weren't sorry to leave. The Furama could have done a good deal more for us - a more frequent shuttle to Hoi An at convenient times of the day, a shorter menu with better quality food, changed frequently, and more activities/diversions for those who prefer not to sit in the sun all day long.
I'd choose somewhere in Hoi An next time.
Although the Furama is in a rather isolated location, its facilities are beautiful--two swimming pools, a library, tennis courts, lovely restaurants, and huge rooms complete with a marble bathroom with both tub and shower, a sofa, desk, and kingsize bed. The property is located right at a beautiful beachfront.We enjoyed our stay here. The breakfast buffet was huge. The dinner and drink prices rather high.
We were initially given a room close to an area where there was considerable hammering going on. We requested and got a change in rooms immediately. Service at the reception desk and in the restaurant was good. The service at the bar lounge could have been a bit more attentive, considering the fact that we were the only people there in the late afternoon.
However, we would stay at this resort again.
Danang in December
I am planning a trip with my boyfriend to Vietnam in the beginning of December. We would like to stay where we can enjoy the beach, yet get to a lot of interesting places to see as well. So far, we have narrowed it down to Danang (Furama Resort) or Hoi-an (Victoria), but we are a bit worried about the weather. Is it too cold in December to enjoy the beach at these resorts? Does anyone have further input to help us decide between these two places?
