Emeralda Resort in Ninh Binh offers well-designed rooms with excellent amenities. Looking normal from the outside, my room is actually spacious and well laid out, with very comfortable bedding. Quite a few pools for relaxation, except that I had trouble opening my eyes in the pool water. Excellent choices at the buffet breakfast. Very attentive services in restaurants.

I have been there 2 times, first time in winter, second time in summer. we all totally enjoyed it. Comfortable, peaceful and well designed resort with nice and professional staffs. Restaurants are good either at vietnamese food and western food. Pools (indoor and outdoor) are ok. There aren't many activities to do, however there are some interesting places nearby.

The resort seems to be well managed, facilities and service are up to the prided standards and it's worth what you pay for. The one star given is due to the pre-sales and after-sales service. I faced a little issue while booking directly to resort due to sales manager's attitude and unprofessionalism, which forced us to deal with a travel... More
