Nice location next to the old bridge on Don Khon. Staff where very friendly and helpful. Nice room with riverview and balcony (new building), well equiped with all you need. The beds are a bit hard, but that's typical in this part of the world. The "main street" with lots of restaurants and shops is nearby, all you need in easy walking distance. Transport to Pakxe with pick up at the hotel can be arranged. Breakfast was ok, nothing special.

A decent place to stay if you find yourself in Don Khone. The rooms in the newer section are simply furnished, but nice enough. Wi-Fi service can be iffy. Breakfast at the restaurant is good if not great. The best thing about the hotel is its location on the river just below the French railroad bridge.

We stayed here for three nights in a deluxe room. And that is the key to enjoying this hotel. They have a new block with circa 14 rooms and these are the rooms worth staying in. The other rooms looked very tired and tend to be the subject of the bad reviews you read. The deluxe s had balconies, Mekong views were well appointed and good air con. Wifi was poor however. Breakfast was fine with good coffee. Worst thing about the hotel was don Khone itself which was not worth the effort it took to get here.

On Don Khone Island there is too much choice in terms of accommodation. It is extremely busy, lots of tourists, but it does not seem overcrowded. A lot of things to do, could easily spend a whole week here. Book tours with the many tour agencies, book your trips at the hotel, or just rent a bike or motorbike and explore the area on your own. The chalet near the water are probably the oldest, poor quality, thought a few times I was going to fall through the wooden board making the floor. When getting up at night will for sure wake up your neighbor. Acoustic insulation is = 0. Try to get a room in the (new) concrete building. Nice restaurant with a large choice of dishes, expect company from a lot of bugs. The swimming pool is top. Be aware that the owner is at least owning 1 more hotel on the Island and the the guests from that hotel are allowed to use the pool, so it can be a bit overcrowded at some point. Famous attraction is one of the dogs from the owner, you will notice him immediately because he does not look like any of the many stray dogs on the island. He is well trimmed. Apparently he has to go back to the Sengaloune vila every night to spend the night there. One of the employees is taking him by motorbike to this place, dropping him of. But before the employee is back at the resort, the dog already returned because he found a way to escape the villa. Hilarious. Hotel has internet but not in the rooms

Extremely poor restaurant: low quality overpriced food, slow and inept service. Cheating at check-out! If your tour guide gets you there, refuse to enter. Otherwise - avoid at all cost. This is a tourist trap!

Together with 25 Anglo-Thai Society members, my wife and myself had a most enjoyable lunch today at the Sengahaloune Resort against the combined backdrop of the Mekong River and the French Bridge. In addition to the lovely setting, both the food (I particularly liked the local fish cooked in a banana leaf) and the service were first-rate. We all enjoyed our visit and would encourage others to dine at the Sengahloune Resort whenever a suitable opportunity arises!

We stayed 5 nights at the resort. The first nights in the new bungalows. They are great! Big room, good shower, very nice. The last night we had to move to one of the bamboo houses. This was terrible. You can hear everything from your neighbors and when they walk in there room you can shake with them. The price for one night is really totally overpriced. We payed 60dollars including breakfast for the bamboo house. In a dormatrie you have a lot of more privacy. I can only advise to break down all the wooden houses and built newer ones. The swimming pool is nice but is open for people coming from other hotels. So sometimes it is crowded. The guys in the restaurant work very hard and are nice people. So, book a newer room and you will have a nice stay.

A good base for being on the islands . Comfortable rooms . Lunch on arrival chaotic as young waiter was a bit hapless serving wrong food ..not once but several times. No shower curtain in bathroom so be careful not flood the place ! Breakfast average . Nice views from restaurant of river & bridge . Wi-fi very very slow but that’s true most places in Laos. This was 0.24 on speed app . The worst anywhere . Your friends will have wait for those Facebook updates and emails . TV program selection restricted for English speakers to CNA, which is pretty awful . Ok base ... islands great !

Sengahloune Resort, Don Khone Visited October '19 Not o be confused with the Sengahloune Villa about 300 metres away, the much larger Sengahloune Resort is set riverside right next to the old French bridge. The resort has a row of wooden bungalows on the riverfront, plus a newly erected multi story wing also fronting the river, behind which is another row of bungalows. We chose one of the newer rooms overlooking the river and were very happy with our choice. The room was quite large and airy with all mod cons. One unique feature of the room was the large day bed with picture windows that opened up to the river and to the adjacent balcony. Also on the resorts lush grounds is a large and very welcoming swimming pool. It should be noted that the surrounding sun lounges are now covered with foam mats and sheets during the day. The supplied breakfast is modest but adequate. There is cereal, fruit, eggs, muffins, baguette's, great pancakes, fruit juice and of course tea and coffee. The staff are great, friendly and helpful, although English is not their strong point. Despite this lack of language, we never had a problem getting our message across. “Tep” the manager was great and had good communication skills. There were only two cons. Firstly, the restaurant/bar was great, a good place to chill overlooking the river and have a drink, however the food whilst reasonably priced lacked any real taste or was overcooked.. Secondly, the WiFi, which was just good enough to stream when it was on, was intermittent, although I think this was a problem of general coverage, rather than a problem at the resort. Overall I would thoroughly recommend the resort. It's pricier than the competition, but well worth it. Enjoy your travels, Grazee

As most people when looking for accommodation, this time on Don Det / Don Khone, I am checking value, rating, and read reviews. Based on my research I wouldn't have chosen Sengahloune resort. Luckily I found out that there is a modern building and I like pools, there are only few offered on the islands. I stayed there for 3 nights in a deluxe room on the second floor and enjoyed every minute. The room is big in a 4 stars hotel's standard, the staff is friendly and service oriented, Mr. Thep, the owner/manager, and his son are doing their best to fulfil your requests. The view of the bridge from the restaurant is unbeatable. The current 3.5 stars reviews rating is doing injustice to this resort.
