Very peaceful. Starry nights, hammocks, open air eating and lobby. The service was so good. After some weary travelling we were totally taken care of by the staff- from food, to activities, to transport and more. They made you feel as if it was your home which they were happy to invite you into. By far the nicest people I... More

No working AC, no clean towels, no working tv, empty mini bar, soaked bathroom, no working bikes, no wifi and a terrible breakfast. Barking and growling dogs didn't make it any more comfortable. We had heard a lot of great things about Cat Ba but after our stay there we just wanted to leave the island and never come back.... More

In the middle of the jungle - monkeys howling around, bird life, farmland, where food for dinner/lunch is grown - simple rooms, friendly staff - the most Eco you can get around to our experience - but don't expect too much - it's a lodge, not a hotel... We went there off season, so the weather was rather rainy and... More

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

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...
