When we arrived at the villa and walked inside OMG, it looked fantastic, our expectations went down rapidly. The en-suits in the 4 bedrooms, except for the main bedroom were so bad, some of our group showered outside near the pool. We paid top dollar for this four bedroom villa and were very, very disappointed. The villa was dirty and smelt like a toilet, very unhappy with the villa in general. The pool area looks great in the pictures, but was extremely tired and run down. OMG the villa has satellite TV in the fixtures, the TV was about 30 years old 25" maybe, if that, what a joke !! The villa's WIFI was the worst we had in three weeks we spent in Vietnam, very unhappy and disappointed, especially when our expectations where so high. The air conditioners in the bedroom were so old they just didn't work efficiently.
Thank you for your feedback. We have gotten our team onto updating anything that is getting tired, including all the bathroom fixtures. With its great location and facilities Dragon Villa has been renting quite a bit and we agree its time for a freshen-up.
We had already hired a team to, not only freshen up the pool area but also enlarge the whole patio area around it. They will begin in June when our calendar is quieter. In the meantime we are bringing in our new lounges and chairs so our guests can enjoy them before the big works begin.
As for the wifi, unfortunately the whole country was suffering terrible wifi in that period due to a cable cut (happy to send you the news articles) and we apologize for any inconvenience. The villa normally has great wifi.
Sewer smell is another thing that happens on occasion throughout the city when the rains start and the city infrastructure is overwhelmed but fortunately its not often and things are improving rapidly in Vietnam.
We are terribly sorry that your experience did not live up to expectation and we hope to do better next time.
Laura was very responsive and Ms Nhu (Laura's agent on the ground) very good. Organised a BBQ on our first night which was tops despite a plane delay. Made meeting our parents from England a breeze. The villa is lovely, it isn't close to HCM in a walking sense and there is obviously a good expat community in the area with a big supermarket close by taxi.
The house is out of control! Me and four other friends stayed here for 5 days and had a blast. I highly recommend this spot.
