Agree 100% with NYTravelingCouple. Ninh Binh is a nice little canoe ride into some caves. Besides that, meh. I suppose that if you're spending time in Vietnam and you traveled forever (from New York) to get there, you might as well experience it. The Resort might be beautiful but since we, and I gather most guests, only stay overnight before heading to Halong Bay, you never really get a chance to find out. Staff was friendly, but again...only a few speak English. Dinner was a disaster...had to send back a few dishes...but manager was apologetic, took it off the bill and pleaded with us to try again the next night. We were gone by morning. Breakfast was very good. Room was pretty...but dated. No tv in English. Bring a flashlight if you venture out at night. Porch light serves to attract flies. You're in a forest here. Pretty during the day. I believe it's the only game in town at a "luxury" level. Good point about going from Metropole in Hanoi to Emeralda...quite a difference. And yes, it's where all the tour buses stop. There was a National Geographic tour there when we arrived, but otherwise empty due to CoVid19 starting to peak.

Structually the hotel and its surrounding gardens are very well designed but the hotel has seen its best days gone for long. The gardens, swimmingpools and recreational areas are filthy and run down. The lobby area is relatively well kept and gives you a good first impression when entering the hotel. All other areas are worse. Rooms are shabby, furniture run dow, bathroom dark and smelly, terrace dirty and lounge chairs not useable. Staff is not attentive, friendly or helpful, breakfast staff was so unfriendly that we asked them not to continue serving us. Food at breakfast and dinner was mediocre. The hotel is outside Ninh Binh and is only recommended for one overnight stay when your travel itinerary requires it. We were glad when we left.

Review collected in partnership with ASUS 12 W8 IE Bookmark
We checked in to the Emerelda Resort after spending the day in the nearby Vanh Long National Park which was breathtaking. The hotel too was top quality. It was a shame that we were only there for one night (which happened to be my birthday) and could not take full advantage of the ameneties on offer. There had been some indifferent reviews onTrip Advisor and the critisisms were unfounded from our point of view. We found the accomodation, the staff an the restaurant to be of the highest standard in every aspect. We were greeted as we arrived and given a welcome drink and our luggage was whisked away and delivered to our cabin. The cabin was superb - being clean, spacious and very well appointed. When it was time for dinner, we were collected in a buggy ( which brought us back afterwards). We havd a lovely meal in the restaurant which ended with a complimentry Birthday Cake and a chorus of Happy Birthday! Afterwards, we had a drink at the pool bar which unfortunately had to close at 10.30 due to virus restrictions. The following morning we had to check out early so could not take complete advantage of the amazing breakfast on offer. Thanks to everyone at Emerelda for such a pleasant stay - albeit a short one.

Lovely resort, in the summer it would be a really nice getaway destination. Rooms and facilities excellent, the indoor pool was lovely and warm. Food was good. Only major disappointment was the bed was like sleeping on concrete, any more than one night and we would have really been uncomfortable
