I had booked four nights for a great Christmas experience with my wife - we were met by a very friendly manager who told us we had been upgraded and he would show us our room - this is a four star hotel and must have been great in its hay day -it was off season and this was very... More

We choose this hotel for the 5 days over Christmas. Bad decision! In its heyday this must have been the crown of Cat Ba. But those days are gone. With less than 10% occupancy the resort was like a ghost town. Staff lounging or sleeping over the tables, the spa baths not working, the bar all covered up with plastic.... More

Don't bother to check-in on this hotel if you are expecting a 4 start class service and facilities. This is definitely just 3 star or 2.5 star. The service is friendly but lacking of knowledge of how to operate a 4 star class hotel. We are here on low season which is now Dec 23 - the hotel has many... More

What’s nice about the resort? - Gorgeous balcony view from the superior room on the top floor (view from the lower floors are partially blocked by trees) - Very clean, comfortable and attractive room – excellent housekeeping staff! - Large and private hotel ground inaccessible to non-hotel guests - Fairly good service overall (duty manager is great!) - 5 to...

In it's hey day would have been very special but now needs a lot of money spent on it..pool was lovely and maintained but that is all. The rooms were comfortable with spacious bathrooms. The beds were very uncomfortable hard as a rock and could feel the springs in our backs... The room was very musty but improved once balcony... More

I am a guy who generally has a good thing to say about most things however there is an exemption to every rule. Cat Ba Island standards are even lower than compared to other places in Vietnam. My wife and I decided on a four star when usually we go to three. The hotel was virtually vacant as was most... More

Our children loved the splash pool so much. But there were too few sliding flat sheets so they had to wait while there was no queue! We stayed in Grand ocean view delux room on the 2d floor, the room is not as large as the picture shows. The view to the ocean is partly hidden by the trees. The... More

It is a 4 stars resort at the best location from Cat Ba island. You can enjoy sunrise on the ocean right from your room's window each morning or just walk to the path from resort to the mountain in front. The small beach is nice, too. There are two pools, spa, seashore restaurant, Pirate bar,... and everything which a... More

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
