White Sand Doclet Resort & Spa
Ranked #61 of 220 Hotels in Nha Trang
Reviewed 8 May 2015

There some resorts in Doc Let (pronounced “joke late”) but White Sand was the one I chose. It’s really large with long private beach. The room is tiny and with good view to the sea. Very clean.
We stayed for 3 nights with every day 3 meals included. My wife liked the fresh sea food very much. We got up very early in the morning and walk to the beach with very clean and warm water sea bathing. After that we walk to the restaurant for the full breakfast buffet. We always walk around the resort and to the fishing village nearby. We bought a lot of fish, snail and crab to bring home at the last day.
The staffs are friendly and dedicated, especially the bell men. The receptionists are quite slow but be lovable. I saw a lot of foreigners there with very few Vietnamese. But the price is still suitable for the local guests.
I have one tip for cheap price is to call the manager to ask for price. You can find the contact on the hotel website.

First went to Doc Let Beach about 10 years ago and never miss going when I am I Nha Trang. We always hire a car for the day, 700,000 D with a driver for the day. Allow at least 90 minutes for the approx 40 K trip. This is not the resort but the beach with the huts that you hire for the day. The beer is very cheap. About 15000 d for a tiger. Go to the northern end of the complex and order seafood from the live tanks. The crabs are very small and one day they will wake up when there are nine left. Try the grilled squid with a bit of garlic and chilli. Yum. You will rarely find a European there. I saw a couple of Russians there last year. I think that they were lost. The car we hired was a brand new 7 seat Innova, so get a few people together. The cost to get in is 250000 and to hire one of the shack type things is another 250000 or maybe 500000. I am not quite sure. It's still cheap anyway

Really good place for my family. I came here to avoid the cold weather on the North. My family booked a connecting room with very comfortable accommodation. We enjoined sea food very much.

Thank you all

Our family visit this resort every year for the last 3 years but I just feel like I need to write a few things in the defence of this place after reading so many bad reviews.

First of all, this place is not in Nha Trang. It was said clearly on their website the first time I booked. So if anyone has complained about its remoteness it is because they hadn't done enough research. The road is a little bit bumpy but it's Vietnam so you should know before you decide to visit a developing country that the infrastructure is not up to most people's standard. Same with the facility , it may not be as splendid and fancy as you would expect a 4star hotel to be but in my opinion after travel around southern Vietnam, the place is surely worth the money and effort. The private white sand beach, the warm water all year round, the greenest environment (I love the way they grow a kind of special tiny plant in stead of grass), the food (from the resort and from the nearby village), the fact that you can almost walk off the balcony right into the water, the peace and tranquility of a remote village with nice and friendly people, all made it a relaxing holiday every time we visited.

Yet I admit that the language barrier is a let down for many international guests. But nowadays you can use google translate to communicate without any problem. Keep it in mind that this is a rural area and the staff are from the surrounding villages which are very poor and underdeveloped so cut them some slack. All the staff we met were nice and friendly.

We enjoyed the food every time we stayed. Breakfast was nice with many hot dishes, lunch and dinner were tasty and sufficient at reasonable prices. And you can walk to the local fish market to get freshly caught freshly cooked seafood. I loved to immense myself in the world of the locals.

If you are into night club and shopping then this is not the place for you but if you like a peaceful and relaxing time with your friends or family I so recommend this resort.

Stayed: July 2014

We came here because Some Days of silence had a problem. We where prommised all inclusive.
But there is a lack of communication. So for every meal we had tot argue with the staff.
You do not feel welcome at all. The swimmingpool is nice , the garden to... but the choice of food is poor.The work with coupons ( anno 1920 ). The kind, but stupid staff can not think by themsleves only obay the rules,
We where with 5 and booked two beach houses at Some Days, everthing was paid This turned into a hotel room and a house with extra bed at White Sand. ( covering all cost exept drink, was in my mailbox )
But in WS they do not read the email : They just follow there own rule :
If you book a extra bed you only get breakfast ???? ... all inclusieve ?? So if you pay $230 for one night it is to much to give a breakfast and lunch to a little girl..... This is only part of the drama. Please do not book.
The toilet was still not flushing after two visits of a plummer, we gave up and went to the pool toilet.
