My husband and I stayed here whilst on an organised tour, due to a change of plans, and thought it was lovely. The rooms were very comfortable, and the beds great. It was only a quick overnight stay, so we didn't get to see much of the grounds, or pool area. The food was very good, and the staff were... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Emeralda Resort. Upon request at time of booking we got two very nicely decorated superior rooms in a cluster called Bamboo around a small pool, close to the reception, restaurants and Spa. The rooms were very large and well equipped : A/C and/or fan, bathrobes, slippers, cone hut, shopping bag, etc. The bathroom was... More

Luxurious rooms in a peaceful setting (might be busier/noisier on holiday weekends) about 15 minutes north of Ninh Binh. The Organic restaurant is in a pool-side setting, with enjoyable food and wine. Resort staff are very professional. Overall worth the money for a mini-break and Tam Coc remains enchanting, especially early in the morning. The beds are heavenly!

This is a great getaway from Hanoi and I enjoyed our stay a lot. The resort is huge and nicely spread out so that everything feels very private. Tip top shape and truly a 5 star feel. I have not encountered a single staff member I had language issues with. Food was overall very good, but maybe my expectations were... More

We stayed here for two nights at the tail end of a week long visit to northern Vietnam. We arrived straight after a two-day cruise in Halong Bay. As we had already seen a lot of sights and felt rather tired, we opted to stay at the resort rather than take advantage of the many sightseeing trips on offer at... More

Resorts come in all shapes and sizes and are located in both popular and less accessible places. The Emeralda Resort just outside Ninh Binh falls into the latter of these categories and I am assessing this on the basis of where it is.

We stayed at the Emeralda because we were taking a motorcycle trip around the Ninh Binh area. I especially wanted to visit Van Long Nature Reserve and was highly disappointed that none of the desk staff at the hotel could give me even the slightest amount of information about it—no brochures, no written material, nor could they even tell me...
