Clean spacious rooms. Huge resort, great swimming pools. Enjoyable but not wow. We enjoyed our walk (only 500m outside Resort) to Van Long Nature Reserve and boat trip, very peaceful. We also walked opposite direction observing the friendly villagers

Lovely big rooms, staff really helpful. Lots of wild life especially frogs, snails and mossies. Food delicious for breakfast and in the restaurant in the evening with a lovely atmosphere. The pool was heavily chlorinated and a bit chilly.

Only stayed here for two nights on our tour of Vietnam, absolutely loved the place though! Nice for some relaxation and luxury- beautiful well looked after grounds, spacious rooms with amazing bathroom and outside area- felt like a second honeymoon!

Stayed here for 4 days to unwind from our busy lives - it was perfect. Quiet and peaceful. Room was lovely, large bathroom and lovely comfy bed. The hotel grounds are beautiful - we enjoyed the undercover walkways connecting up the villas to public areas. The pools are lovely and we spent a number of hours by the pool reading... More

We have stayed in Emeralada Resort for few nights, after a beautiful 2 months trip in Vietnam. We decided to finish our trip with a long weekend in Emeralda Resort Ninh Binh. Emeralda is more than a simple Resort. It is a peaceful place in the middle of paradise surrounded by an amazing natural reserve. The terrestrial Ha long Bay... More

The architecture and design of this resort is wonderful. As the taxi drove in the front gates a beatiful reception that was magnificently designed and like an oasis in the dirt and noise of Vietnam hit our eyes. However, the first impression at check-in was "and here is everything that we will charge you extra for". They lost me by... More

The rooms are spacious and clean and the setting is very nice. However you get the feeling of a lack of soul about the place. I was also disappointed with the extras, $10 to hire bicycles, $10 dollars for mini golf, the prices of tours to Tam Coc are more expensive than if you travel from Hanoi. Considering the price...

In the middle of the North Vietnamese landscape is suddenly such a big land with scattered rooms, grouped around a pool with about 10 rooms. Then in the beautiful garden is a large swimming pool, restaurant and beautiful indoor pool, all with the style of buildings in local and beautiful gardens. Magnificent and luxurious all. The rooms are very spacious,... More

We stayed one night at Emeralda and really enjoyed it. The check in was very nice. We were greeted by the reception staff and the manager also came by to present himself. We booked a deluxe room in one of the bungalows with private pool. The room is very nice and I don’t think the websites picture do it justice.... More

The staff is nice, the hotel is nice, the gardens and the location are gorgeous however there is something missing here, I mean "hospitality" especially compared to the high price you pay and to other hotels I visited in Vietnam where despite being of a lower category level, they were able to let you feel always very welcome by offering...
