The old town is delightful and there are some good day trips. We stayed here which I could highly recommend: http://www.haanhotel.com/
Local beaches are pretty ho hum, but a great day trip would be to China Beach: http://www.bugbog.com/beaches/vietnam_beaches.html
I wouldn't stay there but it's a fun day trip.
Why not write a travel blog about your trip?
Or we have a free Vietnamese iPhone language guide:
