I stayed at Emeralda last year and was given two vouchers for some unfortunate accidents with the resort's facilities during my stay (damp smell in room/duvet and pillows, broken A/C, water leaking in the shower, dirty old worn out towels, fused lights in the wardrobe, missing TV remote control), which were handled by the previous manager in a professional manner,...

Honestly, Emeralda Resort is extremely different with a several thousand of hotel and resort in the Northern area. Which differentiate Emeralda with other places is its own architect - 100% Northern Vietnamese culture.

We visited Emeralda a while ago on my birthday. Friendly and helpful staffs. Room was okay, I expected a lil bit more for a 4 start resort room. No wifi in the room, only cable wire. My brother was so mad because it was the first time we came to a high quality resort with no wifi in the room.... More

Wanted a place that would get us away from city hustle, staying at this resort was a great find. Beautiful setting, birds and butterflies nice quiet retreat. Rooms nice and clean, large bed with huge pillows. Overall, we would definitely stay here again and have already recommended this hotel to people we have met on our travels.

The service was very good and fast. The deluxe room was really very big and clean. The location is really amazing, immerged in a quiet and silent landscape. The only thing which was not the best was the swimming pool, because it was not clean

Spent three nights here after 8 days on a motorbike in Central Vietnam. It was a welcome break, and a really good place to recharge our batteries. The Ninh Binh limestone outcrops set the backdrop for the resort. Its a very large resort, over quite a decent area, so we had several leisurely walks to breakfast, lunch and dinner. We... More
