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!

We enjoyed our stay at the Cat Ba Ecolodge. Staff was very friendly and attentive. The location is very rural and therefore nicely quiet. However, I found the rooms rather basic and a tat bit gloomy. Slightly overpriced in my opnion.

The environment is peaceful and quiet, within beautiful nature (but too bad there is not a real view). The rooms are nice and big, and clean, though no windows, only panels, which can be opened but then the mosquito's will be able to fly in, and there was no mosquito net. We did a walk in the surroundings, which was... More

The eco lodge is in a beautiful place, surrounded by forest and circa 2 km away from the beach. Rooms are nice and comfortable. That said it takes almost one hour to travel the 13 km to Cat Ba town and the shuttle bus goes only 9:00 in the morning and return at 4:00 so either too early or too... More

It was a promising start when we pulled up at the Cat Ba Eco-Lodge after a good 45 minute journey from Cat Ba Town in the shuttle bus, as it seemed a picturesque location in the middle of nowhere. We had been travelling all day and were disappointed to hear when we checked in that there was no AC and... More

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
