At a glance, Cat Ba Island Resort & Spa is a good hotel at all. However, there are somethings should be considered: - There was no free wifi at rooms during the time my family spent here. There's only at the Reception house. - Buffet for breakfast is not 4* service, always crowded, limit of food and you should queue... More

This resort and spa is at a great location on a beach surrounded by stunning views. .. food here is good....that's where it ends for this resort. If u turn up without a booking, prices are through the roof for what is a bottom of the range resort. Service isnt fantastic for what u pay either. Whilst clean and quite... More

This really is not a four star hotel! It is more like a one star! When we arrived it was like a ghost town. It's very difficult to travel to the island and we ended up having to travel on a rusty ferry with no seats and no roof for a good hour! When we arrived we were told we... More

For the cost of the rooms this resort is decidedly average. The beds were rock hard, almost painful - and we had stayed in much more remote locations during our trip - this was to be the 'relaxing' beach portion of the trip. Must say though I did have a few good cocktails in the bar though, and the pho... More

It was said to be the best on the island, luxury. Less then I expected, in Dec. deserted. Nothing was extremely bad, just a less then I expected. The morning breakfast (Viet. fried rice seafood) was very bad, burnt rice and one and a half shrimp.

We loved this resort as its a real find on Cat Ba Island. Most people use Cat Ba as the jump off point for Halong Bay cruises, as we did. This was a great place to relax post cruise and the little beach is very sweet. We walked into town for food as the restaurant was ok but not fantastic.

We treated ourselves to three nights here in a sea view room toward the end of our month long trip through Vietnam. Quite expensive but the location is gorgeous, as are the rooms. They have sauna, which was nice. However the service was almost non existent when we were there. Dozens of staff, however they just sat around the bar... More

We really enjoyed our 3 day, 2 night stay at Cat Ba Island Resort. This is not Cat Ba Beach Resort!! I think TripAdvisor has the two confused. We did have some trouble when we first arrived. We were charged extra per night for our children, which we were not expecting. They were very nice and actually only charged us... More

Once Again, I experienced the wonderful hospitality of the Cat Ba Island Resort and Spa. The quiet surroundings make it a peaceful location to enjoy time away from the city life. With a nice Beach and great on site facilities, there is no better place to spend time on Cat Ba Island
