We spent one night at the Eco-lodge in an effort to diversify our 3 days in SAPA area. The hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views are beautiful sans the strip mining that is going on across the valley from the hotel. The Red Dzao tribe in the area is super aggressive and will pester you to buy things any chance they get. Luckily the hotel does a decent job of keeping them off the property.
The rooms are a different issue. Each chalet style room has a good view but ours was on the lower side of the property (the 200 series) which was not as good. The concept of the rooms were great but the construction and up-keep on the room was poor. The shower stunk like it had no trap which we fixed by putting a wet towel over the drain. The bed squeaked when you made the slightest move which we repaired with some cardboard between pieces of wood and the heater was mounted incorrectly on the wall such that it triggered the thermostat to constantly turn it on and off. Eventually we took it off the wall and placed it on the floor and got it to work as designed although even on full heat it barely kept the room heated and it was fortunately for us not a very cold night. The bar and restaurant were decent and the people working at the hotel were very nice.
