Stayed here for two nights earlier this year. The property is several miles outside of Cat Ba town, so not ideal if you want to spend a lot of time there, but I don't think there's much reason to stay more than a night there. We were the only ones there for our stay, so we were doted on by... More

My brother and I visited Eco Lodge on a whim. I honestly picked it just because of the name and because it looked green. It took a little work to get there (because we rented our own motorbike and got a little lost), but once we found it, we had a fantastic time. And honestly, the drive out there was... More

Tucked away in the mountains about half an hr from Cat Ba town, the eco-lodge was a fantastic experience. We went in the off season so and it was just us and another couple staying there. Despite this the staff were attentive and very friendly. Especially the manager Vinh, who did everything he could to make our stay a pleasant... More

We've been living and traveling in SE Asia for 7 months and this hotel was extremely disappointing. We found it because of it's "top choice" ranking in Lonely Planet which we've used in the past and been very happy. This was different; the food was mediocre and over-priced but they have you trapped out there with no other choice, service... More

We did love this Eco-lodge. With no scooter horns or traffic to be heard, it was a great place to recharge your batteries and enjoy some rare quiet time. The staff were friendly and the accommodation great. A good choice in food too, which is good as it's your only option unless you rent a scooter. Our only complaints would... More

This is not the hotel you go to if you wish to stay on the beach. This is up in the mountains on Cat Ba Island. But that is what makes it so charming. It is quiet, away from the continuous buzz that is Vietnam. There are some great walks to do. Staff are friendly and arrange everything you wish... More

We checked in for three days and stayed an extra one because it was so nice and quiet. It took a day to settle into the groove, especially as the manager insisted on explaining all the tour choices to us before we were shown to our room. This left me a bit cranky as we had just endured the long... More

Cat Ba Eco Lodge was our second stop on our honeymoon and we stayed 2 nights. The staff were very kind and the ambiance was great when we arrived. This hotel was part of a Junk boat package and we were told that it was a beautiful resort. I feel like this was misleading as it was fairly simple accommodation.... More

We arrived at the Cat Ba Eco Lodge with the expectation that this was an amazing place. First impression was that the scenery was fantastic, set amongst the hills away from the hustle and bustle of Hanoi, and about 12km away from Cat Ba Town. On arrival, the staff made us feel very welcome, and the manager sat down with... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent. The nature, the eco-idea, the architecture, the food, the service and first of all the staff. We have met a lot of kindness i Vietnam but this was outstandig. Mogens og Anne, Denmark
