At the end of a month long trip in Vietnam we chose 7 days at this relaxing resort on Cat Ba Island. It really was the best way to finish our holiday with fantastic staff, delicious food, relaxing accomodation (all rooms have a view), superb pool and of course the fabulous beach. We really did not want to leave.
Thank you for such a wonderful time.
Cheers Adair and Barry.

Stayed here for four nights, we loved it , nice and relaxing after a tough motorcycle tour. Room was beautiful, the whole place was very clean, staff were always busy clearing flower beds etc, netting debris from the sea in the mornings, and everybody from front desk to cleaners always said Hello, Good Morning etc when passing. Beds were at the most firm, but very comfortable, probably softest that we experienced in Vietnam. I must agree with dwo99 regarding comments by other reviewers, if you dont like real life, stay at home and watch travel programmes, or go to Disney. As far as staff speaking English, how much Vietnamese can you all speak? The people that need English, front desk etc spoke good English, and waiters, bar staff etc did OK. If you want everyone to speak your language STAY HOME and stop moaning.

Granted, we were here in the off season (November 2012). But this place was a welcome relief from the hotel scams in Hanoi and Saigon (see my other reviews for more info). Beautiful setting, quiet, and every convenient to town.

Pros: Excellent service, staff, amenities, and rooms. Stunning views

Cons: plumbing needs some work (shower does not drain properly

The only issue I had at all had to do with the other guests. You will be sitting on your balcony, enjoying the breeze, the fresh air, etc. and then one of your neighbors will force you back inside by SMOKING. The resort would do well to ban all smoking on the premises, at least the rooms and balconies.

Some of the other comments in here about this place were comical. First, the beds. Yes, they are firm, but VERY comfortable. By Vietnamese standards, this place rocks. If you want 5 star perfection, please stay home.

Second, a few people complained about the walk into town. I am here to tell you that it is an easy, beautiful stroll that will take 15 minutes normal pace, but much longer if you stop to enjoy it. So quit whining, get off your fat, lazy, western duff and walk already!

I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: 3rd floor in the middle.

I totally agree with others who say that this would be an ok place to stay if priced appropriately. Like 40% of their non negotiable rates. The lovely pool does not make up for rock hard beds and unaccommodating service. Hard beds are the norm for budget hotels in this country, and I can accept that. But you can't have the budget beds AND the high end prices (you can get free wifi and AC at every other $15 hotel in town). Frankly it's a backpacker town, which suits me fine. I just feel for visitors who go away feeling jaded and gipped because they were not forewarned.

The other option of course is if Sunrise could rise to a more international standard and offer visitors to the island a more luxurious option to the backpacker hotels. The location has such potential!

Room smaller than expected & bed as hard as a rock but setting & view excellent. Standard of breakfast very poor compared to all other resorts we have stayed at on this trip.Don't order an omelette! Buildings need maintenance, staff lack english, lack of access to activities such as cycles or canoes & a town not geared to tourism makes it a location for a 1 to 2 day stay at the most. Also Beware of local town motorcycle tout rip offs.
