Good service and the best part is, they help you book a Halong Bay Cruise which is really awesome. The night view from the rooms are just magnificent. Slight language issue with the hotel support staff, not everyone speaks English so be ready to slowly make them understand what you need by actions and phrases.

We only had one night here before a trip to Halong Bay but we were overwhelmed by how beautiful the entire place was and didn't want to leave! I'm not sure I have ever had a view like it - the small bay with a white sandy beach is surrounded by lush green mountains - just stunning… The staff are... More

I come here for the first time with my colleague but I feel funny. The receptionist is so lack of professional. The bell men know we were corporate customer therefore they didn't bring our suit case to our room. My room has sea view so amazing. It is really fantastic with so many islands far away from my view. Buffet... More

As others have said, overpriced and under friendly! It's a long journey to get here and we were initially impressed with the beach location and pool. However Reception staff were unwelcoming, the room smelled of damp, we had one evening meal which was ok but really expensive. The sunrise is actually around the bay, something they didn't mention, the trips... More

First of all I have to say the staff we're very cheery, friendly and helpful. That is where the good points end. We arrived at Cat Ba Island Resort and were met with a cold reception with very little atmosphere. As is was low season we accepted that it may be quiet but it was a ghost hotel. We got... More

This really is not a four star hotel! It is more like a one star! When we arrived it was like a ghost town. It's very difficult to travel to the island and we ended up having to travel on a rusty ferry with no seats and no roof for a good hour! When we arrived we were told we... More

We recently stayed in the offseason here at Catba Island and Resort. The staff were friendly during the day. There are no visitors after 10pm so don't expect to bring anyone back. The beds were awful. Close your eyes imagine sleeping on a brick wall. No kidding they have box springs not mattresses. We have traveled and stayed in other... More

This our 2nd stay at this Hotel, the staff we totally dedicated to serving their guests. Rooms were very large and clean, we were on the top floor with a spectacular view of the Halong Bay Island. As the resort is so large, it would be nice that guests could drive buggies through the resort as oppose to waiting for... More
