We love ecolodge but this was super remote for us. It is exactly 35min to/from town. It's a very rough road and the driver goes fast. I'd you get car sick or have any ailments, not a good half hour. The lodge accommodations are fine. Large rooms, excellent WiFi and good hikes and walks around the lodge. It's so remote... More

We stayed there 2 nights and were very disappointed about this place! The site is very nice, the rooms are nice too and the matrasses comfortable, but this are the only things this place has to offer! You are far from everything, that was the reason why we wanted to go there, we wanted some peace. But as there is... More

Unreservedly enthusiastic welcome is the first thing I got impression from the staff there from very first moment. The staff always kept their eyes on us and answered any questions whenever we asked. Nice and clean, comfortable rooms deserve an equally excellent standard of four-star hotel. The food there is fairly good, but its so expensive. It’s hard to rent... More

We stayed there 3 nights and had a great time to be in very quiet and cool place ideal to slack off in the summer. Nice rooms and clean but quite expensive service than other hotels in CatBa Town. Acceptable food but ya have to wait quite long, I think, coz too few staffs but they did try their best... More

I stayed there two night. I was really disapointed. The situation is nice and quiet but that's all! For more than 35$ a night you can have much better in Vietnam or in Cat Ba were you can have a private room for less than 10$ with better service. They didn't make up the bed after our first night when... More

We love the outdoors, so we wanted to include a rainforest in our trip. Cat ba town gets bad reviews. The whole island is under constant construction. The Eco-lodge was the perfect hideaway from all that. Relaxing in a hammock, sipping a cocktail while listening to the sounds of nature. Then enjoying a freshly cooked dinner or lunch. (The staff...

The staff is the best; extremely friendly and willing to accomodate your needs, giving privacy at the same time. Location is peaceful and relaxing (after visiting several cities). Tours are easily booked with the one to Lan Ha Bay being the absolute highlight. The free cooking class (making springrolls) was very enjoyable. Excellent free wifi by the way.

It is very rural and out of the way, but easy to rent a motorbike and go explore the area and get to the park. The staff was friendly and attentive and thoroughly enjoyable. Maybe they changed cooks because we had some really good food there, it was quite refreshing after some rather disappointing meals to finally fill up on... More

It's not a hotel If you Want to Go to Cat Ba island! Overpriced place and very bad food that unfortunately you are forced to eat. It's also expensive! Bad experience! Furthermore, you are forced to use their transport service, 1 hour for 18 km from Cat Ba town. Please don't choose this place! Stay away!
