I would certainly recommend this resort, as it is probably the best house in the island. Staffs are friendly and the food is awesome. With more training and quality training, the resort staffs would benefit and the customers extremely satisfied. Great value and a great place for relaxation.

Our family spent 3 nights at this resort. The place has a lot to offer: two pools and water slides for adults and kids, a cool pirate-themed bar with karaoke, a play area for younger kids, a spa, beach access, and an easy paved walk that takes you around part of the island with some wonderful views. The staff was,... More

Good service and the best part is, they help you book a Halong Bay Cruise which is really awesome. The night view from the rooms are just magnificent. Slight language issue with the hotel support staff, not everyone speaks English so be ready to slowly make them understand what you need by actions and phrases.

We only had one night here before a trip to Halong Bay but we were overwhelmed by how beautiful the entire place was and didn't want to leave! I'm not sure I have ever had a view like it - the small bay with a white sandy beach is surrounded by lush green mountains - just stunning… The staff are... More

I come here for the first time with my colleague but I feel funny. The receptionist is so lack of professional. The bell men know we were corporate customer therefore they didn't bring our suit case to our room. My room has sea view so amazing. It is really fantastic with so many islands far away from my view.

As others have said, overpriced and under friendly! It's a long journey to get here and we were initially impressed with the beach location and pool. However Reception staff were unwelcoming, the room smelled of damp, we had one evening meal which was ok but really expensive. The sunrise is actually around the bay, something they didn't mention, the trips... More

First of all I have to say the staff we're very cheery, friendly and helpful. That is where the good points end. We arrived at Cat Ba Island Resort and were met with a cold reception with very little atmosphere. As is was low season we accepted that it may be quiet but it was a ghost hotel. We got... More

This really is not a four star hotel! It is more like a one star! When we arrived it was like a ghost town. It's very difficult to travel to the island and we ended up having to travel on a rusty ferry with no seats and no roof for a good hour! When we arrived we were told we... More
