Bernadette Gouchel, Montreal, Canada. Sonata is, without exaggeration, a paradise for lovers of silence. Our family – husband, me, my mother and father – spent a whole week here. Clean beach very close. Around are tall coconut palms. The pool is just perfect – big and clean. Wide paths covered with beautiful hard tiles run through the hotel. There are signs everywhere. With their help, it is easy to find the way to the beach, gym or other points on the territory of the hotel. I would like to note the professional work of the staff. The only drawback is that most employees do not speak English well and do not understand a word in French, my native language. However, the politeness of the staff, smiles and timely assistance – all this compensates for a small drawback.

Vyacheslav Subbotin, St. Petersburg. The first time was with two friends in this region of Vietnam. Hotel “Green Organic Villas” was chosen for two reasons: here you can go kitesurfing and relax in silence away from the cities. The staff is awesome. Employees are always smiling, fulfill any requests, help to choose beautiful places where you can go on a motorcycle. A big plus is that next to each villa there is a swimming pool. The food in the restaurant is always varied, which, to be honest, is rare for Vietnam, judging by the hotels where we have stayed before.
