The tour was purchased from the tour operator Anex Tour (guides are great! Tatyana, Alena, Kirill, Andrey, Avasbek are all professionals! Separate respect to the training department and the personnel department of AnexTour. In general, Anex tour is the leader in Vietnam, without exaggeration, the buses are new, there are many offices, the staff is all "branded" polite and answers all questions).
We flew with Azur Air (there is an opportunity to register in advance on the airline's website and choose seats on the plane, there is no online check-in back from Nha Trang to Moscow).
The hotel was settled quickly, in standard rooms 32 and 33 on the ground floor, the rooms are connected, which is very convenient for a family of 5 people.
The rooms were cleaned every day.
Swimming pool 30 meters, Doclet beach (or Zoklet beach) 70 meters, reception and restaurant 100 meters. Everything is close and convenient.
Meals breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is more varied and tasty, there were no issues with food. There were no digestive problems.
The staff is polite, few people understand Russian and English, but there was no barrier in understanding.
The territory is large and beautiful, the gardeners worked every day.
The beach is great, cleaned every day.
Near both sides are fishing villages and hotels (the categories are lower and the area is worse).
In general, the hotel is very good in Doclet and the surroundings are beautiful.
Calm and quality stay in the hotel
White Sand Doclet!
Everything else suited quite well. If you get tired of a beach holiday, you can take a troika to the city, the final stop is near the hotel.
Our large family vacationed at White Sand Doclet Beach Resort and Spa in October 2015, four adults and five children from 3 to 13 years old. It was the first time in Vietnam.
Before the trip, we were worried about the low season and heavy rains. In fact, it rained once in 14 days, and we were looking forward to it. The ticket was chosen based on the Nha Trang landmark, between the Diamond Bay Resort and White Sand Doclet hotels due to the relative proximity to the airport (it’s not an option for us to shake the bus for a long time after a long flight with children), other areas were not considered.
Both hotels are on the first line and relatively not far from Nha Trang, the price tag at the time of buying a tour in Diamond Bay was 50% higher, so we settled on a budget option. In addition, dinner was included in the White Sand Doclet package, so the advantage was obvious.
The hotel left a very good overall impression. The territory is small, but cozy, well-groomed, and clean. We lived in a bungalow, in which every day three people of the staff did the cleaning (including washing the floors), changed linen, towels, updated hygiene products.
The lack of Russian-language television (Channel One does not count) was compensated by taking a 1 TB hard drive with new films and cartoons. Wi-fi is available throughout the hotel and in every bungalow, but on the beach the network was caught only on a laptop and that was not stable. On the internal network, apparently, there is a traffic limit per ip. At first, the explorer cheerfully opens all the pages, but then it freezes and starts to slow down terribly. Dancing with tambourines to switch to other access points saves for a while. Video to watch, download, upload to YouTube will not work.
The food is commendable. The food is tailored for Russian tourists, a lot of meat, a series of fish products, several types of desserts, everything is very tasty. There is no children's cuisine (cereals, mashed potatoes, muesli), but our children tried everything and everyone found their preference. We celebrated five birthdays, and for each holiday there was an airy, delicate gift cake from the hotel.
The beach is beautiful - white sand and calm, light, small waves. The beach lacks a large shady canopy (tent) for children, as the sun burns imperceptibly, but strongly enough. The sand is very hot and it is not comfortable for children to play in it without a shadow.
A first-person video was filmed, which, after returning, was edited and posted on YouTube. Search by hotel name, or by video title "White Sand Doclet Vietnam October rainy season review HD108.50p" if site admin removes direct link in this review.

Everything is fine, it would be better if there was a bar with fresh juices and water on the beach, this is very lacking, you have to go to the room to drink or in a cafe to the heating element, the hotel is quite expensive
Far from the city, but if you are not a fan of night parties, then this is a great place. There are beautiful sunrises . . it's just a miracle!
Next to the hotel, at Ten, you can buy fruit (the price is the same as in Nha Trang), wine, beer, rum, cigarettes - the price is slightly higher than in the supermarket in the city, but not critical (wine - 75 thousand dong, in the store 45 t. d. . , beer - 15t. d, in the city - 9t. d. ), just to eat (seafood is cooked) - it's very cheap, tasty.
Taking a free bus to Nha Trang, you can get around all its attractions on foot. It's interesting, just look at the city, we used the navigator on the phone and found everything. You can also just go to Winpearl, from there to the White Sand Doclet hotel 600 thousand dong, you can cooperate with someone, it will be 300 dong each.
You can go on excursions from the hotel through Anton (Vietnamese, speaks Russian quite tolerably (he tries very hard), his prices for excursions are several times lower than those of Pegasus, he is a responsible, nice person), his contacts: 0.6789 0.08, from the Russian card +84.6789 0.08, em: [email protected] com, you can also get his contacts from Ten.
We recommend White Sand Doclet, I really want to go back there.
