The Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort is a new addition to the Marriott Bonvoy collection. Formerly part of the luxury Vietnamese Vinpearl chain, this newly renovated establishment is now under the Sheraton banner. This magnificent 5-star beachfront resort is located on the island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam.

Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Location
The Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort is located in the north of Phu Quoc Island, quite far from the center. It takes around 50 minutes to get to the airport and around 30 minutes to Duong Dong, the island’s main village. The hotel is located right next to VinWonders, a Disneyland-style theme park. The hotel offers free shuttles to the park and casino.
Public transport is non-existent in Phu Quoc: you can ask reception to call you a cab or use Grab, Southeast Asia’s equivalent of Uber. A Grab to the airport costs around 420,000 VND (~25 CAD) and around 300,000 VND (~18 CAD) to Duong Dong.
Although somewhat removed from the action in the center, the advantage of being in the north of the island is the quality of the beaches. Immaculate during my visit, Long Beach is recognized as one of the most beautiful beaches in Phu Quoc.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Check-in
The entrance hall is impressive and richly decorated. The marble sets the tone and an imposing gilded chandelier hangs from the ceiling. As I visited during the holiday season, a magnificent Christmas tree occupied the center of the reception area.
On arrival, the staff will immediately take care of your luggage and bring it to your room. We’re also offered a welcome cocktail. At check-in, I received a small upgrade thanks to my Gold status. I had booked a room with a garden view and got a room with a sea view.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Rooms
A small welcome gift awaited us: a chocolate cake with fresh fruit and truffles.
The King Deluxe room with sea view is very spacious. The cozy bed guarantees a good night’s sleep. Opposite the bed is a small flat-screen TV, which was not yet connected to the Internet at the time of my stay. Bring your laptop and an HDMI cable if you want to watch something other than Vietnamese TV.
The balcony offers a magnificent view of the pool and beach. A small dining area is provided if you want to eat outside or sip your morning coffee.
The bathroom is equipped with a large bathtub, a rain shower and a large vanity. Everything is spotless and well appointed.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Restaurants
The resort offers four restaurants. The former, Wok & Curry and Beach House, serve mainly Vietnamese cuisine and a few other Asian dishes. The second, Prime Bar & Grill, is a buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Finally, the Anchovy restaurant serves international dishes. Tables are set near the bar and on a lovely outdoor terrace by the pool. Prices are reasonable and the food is of fairly good quality. As the hotel is a large, fairly isolated complex, there are no other restaurant options in the vicinity.
I also ordered room service twice. I liked the carbonara pasta dish and the spicy mango salad.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Other services
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Swimming pool
The swimming pool is the central attraction of the complex. It’s beautiful and well-maintained, with an in-water bar. There are also two paddling pools for children.
Beach towels are provided, just ask at the small counter by the pool. They also supply floating mattresses. Plenty of sun loungers, parasols and sofas are scattered around the pool. I’ve never had a problem finding a free chair.
There’s a children’s playground outside, as well as an indoor Kids Club.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Beach
The sandy beach is magnificent and the water is warm. Comfortable sun loungers and parasols are available on the water’s edge. It’s also possible to organize a romantic dinner on the beach.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Spa
The hotel offers a full spa service. Reservations must be made in advance with the hotel reception.
The prices are reasonable and I was very satisfied with the service. I chose a Balinese massage and a hair treatment. Spa staff welcome you with a cup of tea, then you have access to the sauna and whirlpool before and after your treatment.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - Around the hotel
The hotel is quite remote. Nearby, there are only the VinWonders park, a casino and a hospital for tourists.
There are no shops or restaurants in the vicinity. To get out of the complex, you’ll have no choice but to take a cab or a Grab. The hotel reception can easily arrange a cab for you.
Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach - My overall impression
I had a wonderful stay at the Sheraton Phu Quoc Long Beach Resort during the festive season. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff are friendly and the food is of good quality. The beach is magnificent and swimming in the large pool is pleasant.
I found that a 3-night stay was slightly too short to fully enjoy the resort and relax. There’s also plenty to do on the island of Phu Quoc on day trips. For this reason, I would recommend staying a minimum of 5 nights, and even up to a full week.
