We read from the internet that this Place is amazing! When we arrived, there wasn´t staff who could speak english. Well, we got the room. Wifi didn´t work on the whole time properly. Warm water came one night out of four. Bottlewater suppose to be free. When we left they try to charge for that. Location is REALLY BAD! 4-5kilometers...

They even packed us a breakfast for our early departure. Moreover, the prices are really good; we sure will stay at the lam homestay I we ever come back...

I stayed here after seeing the glowing reviews, and I'm sure glad I did. Mr. Lam is as hospitable as others have said. Talking with him was a great highlight of my trip. Rooms are basic. Renting a scooter was easy. Great home base during my stay.

Having travelled around Thailand, Laos and Cambodia Phu Quoc Island is not one of the cheaper places we have been to, however the lam homestay represented good value.

Whilst simultaneously lacking the "entrepreneurial spirit" (or pay us!) feeling of Cambodia. The lam is honestly clean, friendly and very affordable. It's a bit out of the way which ensures peace and quiet. But does offer...
