Ok, so Cat Ba is a weird place, and really just not a resort destination - do not come here to lie around on the beach. The key to this place is stay somewhere cheap and then spend your money doing day trips and nature tours (kayaking, rock climbing etc). We had heard so many bad things about the guesthouses... More

The bungalows are amazing, big and conftable. The food served was really teasty and big portions. The beach is OK, although with some pebbles when the tide is low. I took a tourist package with Ocean Tours with one night in this resort and another in a Aclass boat in Halong bay, but by far the resort was better. Next... More

1. Cockroaches and spiders in room. Lots of cockroaches!! 2. Shack smelt of damp. 3. No hot water. 4. No curtains in bathroom so next door could watch you shower if they wanted to. My biggest issue was that that you could only leave the island at 9am and you had to return at 4pm. If you didn't stick to... More

I have done an inspection to this resort. In general, the resort is ok. These are my comments: - The pictures of the beach in front of the resort in the brochures are fake. - The water is not clean during the summer time and is only clear after October - There is a lack of good maintenance, bushes are...

We stayed as independent guests at this resort, catching the resort's boat from Cat Ba Town. This place was not worth US$35 each. The rooms/bungalows were clean and quite cute with nice views of the ocean, however staff were staying in the room right next to us. Just made it seem like a big rip off, especially when the 3...

The staff is nice, but the location is inconvenient, rooms are leaky and buggy, property was under construction and rundown.

We stayed here for a night during our Halong Bay cruise with Ocean Tours. Had an amazing stay. It is back-to-basics stuff, living in lil beach huts with minimal luxury.. but thats what made it so beautiful. Waking up to the tide coming in - it was so peaceful. We kayaked around to 'sunset beach' and if your able, I... More

we booked a 2 days tour with Ocean Tours in Hanoi in the Halong bay including a night on their private island rather than on the boat. I think it was the right choice since we had a nice room in a small bungalow with seafood bbcue and nice music. The resort has no power so they use generator from... More

I'm still trying to figure out the target market for this beach resort. The privacy and seclusion of the resort on it's own island makes me think that the target is for couples. However, the non-privacy in the shared bungalows makes this non-ideal for any couples. There are some very nice things about the resort. The resort is across from... More
