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

We were booked into Catba Island Resort and Spa as part of our Halong Bay cruise package. We must have somehow lucked out with this place because we were travelling on a budget and booked mid-range tickets and accommodations. Although we were the only people in the entire resort we we treated like royalty. It was lovely but hard for... More

If you want a level of luxury on the island this is probably your only option. That said it’s a good choice. Staff were great, breakfast was very good, a huge selection of hot foods, fruit and pastries. The town itself it’s somewhat of an eye sore populated by karaoke bars but the hotel is located just far enough away... More
