Four Tips for Booking a Local Hotel

Martin Gracewell

Phu Quoc is a fantastic destination for travelers. If you want the island life and want an affordable destination that you can visit any time of the year, this is an excellent idea. It’s a Vietnamese island that’s located just off the coast of Cambodia, in the Gulf of Thailand. More than half of the island is protected and is a part of the Phu Quoc National Park. There are dense tropical jungles, trails, and wildlife. There are also plenty of day and night markets throughout the island. Needless to say, if you are going to visit the island, you might want to make a booking at a decent hotel. Here are a few tips for selecting a good hotel in the area.

  1. Book a 5-Star Hotel

There are several 5 star Phu Quoc hotels that you can choose from. A simple online search is all it takes to find various hotels on the island that offer amazing places where you can stay. Booking a 5-star hotel in Phu Quoc is a fantastic idea. A hotel is rated five stars based on the level of comfort and services that it offers. It’s recommended that you check the hotel’s website to find out more about the services that they provide. Ideally, a 5-star hotel is going to have a swimming pool, a fitness center, and a spa. Because tourism is such an important part of the local economy, you don’t even have to worry about paying over the top for booking a decent hotel in the city. There’s a lot of competition, and many hotels offer major discounts from time to time.

  1. Check Reviews

Never book a hotel before checking reviews from various websites. There are plenty of review sites from where you can find out more about what others have to say regarding their experience. It’s recommended that you check any pictures that other customers might have posted to find out how their experience went, and where they were lacking.

  1. Discounts

As mentioned above, many hotels offer discounts or free upgrades to their customers from time to time. It’s recommended that you check their website to find out if there are any special offers available that you can take advantage of. Being vigilant when making a booking online can help you save a great deal of money.

  1. Location

Last, but not least, you need to evaluate the location of the hotel. How far is it from the city center? What’s the average travel time that you are looking at? Does the hotel offer airport transfers? Make sure you schedule an airport transfer so that a representative from the hotel is available to pick you up as soon as your flight lands. These are just a few of the many things that you should know about booking a hotel. Make sure you book a hotel at least a week or two in advance.
