Before I even begin my review, I wanted to point out that my previous review was removed along with any other recent reviews of this hotel, thus you only see 2 reviews and 5.0 rating. :o)
Despite what you may see in photos, you may realize otherwise when you visit this hotel property. It was not good enough for my stay. It was not clean enough and too far away from town. If you wanted to eat or massage elsewhere, you would have to drive into town for 30-40 minutes on poor road condition. I travel quite often and I would rate this hotel 2.5, 3 at the most. After visiting the hotel, I've contacted Expedia to cancel my reservation, but the hotel refused based on its policy. As a VIP member, I never had any problem cancelling my reservation, but the general manager of this hotel was more focused on following its policy, rather than wanting to find out the reason for my cancellation and how he can accommodate to provide very best customer service. Good hotel with good management is always interested in how to best serve its customers' needs to provide a memorable stay and I did not see that here. There are far better hotels in town if you want to experience VangVieng.
