We stayed here for one night as part of our Halong Bay cruise programme, and we loved it. The service was wonderful, the food was scrumptious, and the simplistic accommodation put the emphasis on just the right things: a comfortable bed and the sounds of crashing waves. It was a lovely stay, and I would definitely stay longer if I... More

One of the things I wanted to do on my bucket list was to stay in a beach hut and see and hear the waves from my bed. I was there as part of a Cambodia/Vietnam tour and I upgraded to a sea view hut for $20. It's not a luxury hotel and I took it for all it's rustic... More

Turned up on the beach in front of the hotel, wet and sandy, having flipped my kayak over on the way there. We didn't bring any money, the plan was to sleep on a beach. The staff gave us free accomodation - a really nice bungalow - free breakfast and even offered to tow us back to Cat Ba Island... More

Weather cold and wet making the whole experience not very pleasant. Upgraded to sea front bungalow which would have been lovely had the weather been better and we could have just walked over the path to the beach or sat and enjoyed the views from our patio. However it was not and like many other reviews I was so cold... More

We spent a day and a night here. A most attractive resort in the sunshine I'm sure, butnot ideal in cold drizzle. The chalet was quite well equipped, but unheated, and I spent half an hour under the shower and then went to bed dressed for a bit of warmth. Food was interesting and good, but charging so much for... More

We visited monkey Island when the weather was cold and damp. i recommend you choose hot, sunny weather as you are not allowed any heating until 9pm and then it doesn't work. I resorted to going to bed fully dressed. The bungalows are ok, with plenty of space around the beds and a tv. However the water is extra and... More

Stayed here in a small group as part of a tour at the end of February. Would have been lovely if it was warmer but we were so cold and we had to wait till 9 pm before the heating came on in the room. The evening meal was excellent and they tried to get a stove going in the... More

We found the price very high having booked and paid in advance and service and facilities very low. Clearly most guests arrive on a package deal and seem ok with one night boat one night resort. Our two nights was let down by inadequate heating staff more concerned with themselves and the generator than guests dirty rooms and poor information... More

We booked a halong bay tour with dragon pearl cruises which was awful and the most unorganised thing we have ever witnessed. But arriving for the first night on monkey island resort was the highlight of our 3 weeks in Vietnam. Private gorgeous island with hardly any guests and the nicest friendliest staff! Straight away they gave us our cute... More
