Luxurious accommodations even by western standards. Depending on what you want the location is good overall. The pros are a quiet and large complex with amazing ocean views and a large pool and poolside. If you want relaxation and quiet place to stay a little distance from the noise, Palm Garden is a great option. I was hesitant on the price, but the breakfast spread is phenomenal and since it's included, it was a big bonus for our stay. A 3 night stay is optimal, we were able to do everything the resort offered over the 4 days and could go at our own pace. Our sea-view room off the pool near the beach was perfect. Coffee in the morning on the balcony in rocking chairs overlooking the ocean, need I say more?
The resort is on the beach but there really isn't a beach to lay out on or go swimming in right off the property. The ocean water actually runs right up to the sea wall and the only way to get down to the beach is to climb down a wall of sand, there are no steps. If you walk north down the beach a short ways there are better options. Or take a bike to Ang Bang beach, one of the best in Vietnam. The bikes are $5 US for 4 hours, and they are serviceable at best. We had to bring one back after starting out and the other 2 we used the seats wouldn't fully stay up. The shuttle bus into town is almost always full and they bring just one van up, it would probably be better to get a larger mini-bus or bring 2 vans up instead of forcing guests to scramble into one vehicle.
