            Great location, stunning views, wonderful property, caring manager, easy walk into town or take a shuttle for a small charge. Some things are a little tired, just take some caring from the stuff and a little time would make a big difference. Overall a wonderful stay with family.

            Above average”

            We visited Cat Ba during a low traveling season, so the resort was pretty empty. The pools were really nice, but actually super cold. Beach was not as private as expected, but we liked the easy access to the short hike. The room was okay—bed was incredibly squeaky and loud (just shifting your sleeping position made the bed creak and move) and the walls are super thin. Breakfast was just okay. Not sure why, but reception rushed us to check out on time even though we were two of very few guests at the resort; they called multiple times reminding us to check out on time. Keep in mind buses won't take you all the way up to the resort. It'll drop you off at the bottom of the hill and you'll have to walk up.

            Do not stay here! ”

            Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. Wish we could do a 0 star. It’s like a ghost town it felt like there are literally no other guests staying here. The pools are empty, the restaurant is empty, the paths are empty it’s like no one is staying here. The hotel is in very bad condition and it’s obvious that it’s so big that they can’t afford to maintain it. The staff range from ok to absolutely terrible. The food at the restaurant was rubbish and very overpriced. Breakfast was awful. The rooms are filthy and the toilet and shower in our room didn’t work. We had to change rooms as our balcony door handle snapped off so we were unable to use the balcony. There were dirty stains on the bedding and the towels too. You had to ask them to turn the water slides on and you have to pay a lot of money for tennis rackets too! Just awful. Everything about it is shocking - do not stay here!! We completely wasted our time in cat Ba staying here, we would have much preferred staying in a hostel in the town for £6 a night instead of £55 pn. Not a 4* Hotel, being generous a 2* hotel. Very disappointed!

            Great resort for money spent”

            I had a fantastic stay at Cat Ba Island Resort and Spa during my second trip to Cat Ba. I first want to say that my girlfriend and I were overjoyed by how we were treated at this resort. Because she is Japanese and I am white, we often experienced rude racism and maltreatment in spite of neither of us being Vietnamese. Regardless, Catba Island Resort made me feel like a valued guest and looked over my relationship and respected my girlfriend and I. I can’t stress enough how much that meant to me. Furthermore, on top of the friendly treatment I received, I was very happy with how great the free breakfast was as well as the dishes I had for dinner at their restaurant. Rooms were very comfortable and I had a lovely view of the ocean. I also enjoyed the pool, although I was a little disappointed that the water slide was closed. However several areas of the were being renovated. All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will come back here in the future. Thank you so much!

            Great value during cooler months

            I stayed at the Cat Ba Resort & Spa for 3 nights. It was close enough to town to walk easily there, but far enough away from the town to enjoy the serenity. The rooms are centrally heated and I always came back to the room at a good temperature. Staff are really nice and helpful. The free breakfast was great. The Pirate Bar is quite a nice and interesting bar. Highly recommended if you can get a good deal

            Catba Island Resort & Spa ”

            The view was spectacular. The grounds are very beautiful. The restaurant & food was really good.
            The waterslide was not going even when I asked if it could be turned on. The staff could be a little more friendly. It was low seasion so it was quite so maybe they didn't want the few people there to use too much electricity.

            We really liked the Catba Island Resort & Spa. We were so glad to finally get to the Island and then to see that the hotel was so beautiful. When we got into our room we were amased at the view of the other islands and little private bay from our room's balcony. The pools were delightful. Everything was great, we could have stayed much longer but sadly we only had two days on CatBa

            For Cat Ba, overall standard is good”

            Quality of service, Location to beaches, Staff effort to assit with anything

            I was a difficult client from the outset due to lack of genuine knowledge of Vietnam. On day one I complained about the quality of mattress and wanted a better bigger room and internet access fixed. I was almost ashamed by the manner in which management obliged my every request with prompt courteous assistance. And any other issues what so ever. The mattress issue was unresolvable, but you have to get your brain around the fact this is Vietnam and Cat Ba is some distance from the major cities where very good quality is obtainable. For Honeymooners I’d frown if someone told me they were going to Cat Ba for the beach. But we made the most of it and the management / staff are very compliant and genuine to an extreme; you will feel like the most important person staying there. I cannot emphasize enough the genuine effort made by all management in dining, your room and front counter to assist you and to help you be as comfortable as possible. I ask for help with our departure/return which involved a half day ordeal to our next location, the management went to tedious effort to supervise even this which was followed through with 4 hours after we had left. We were there 6 days. Value for money is good.

            the hotel is the most luxurious in the island. its location is perfect, you will get a very beautiful view to halong bay from your room. it is also near the city of cat ba, only in a walking distance. you will also have an opportunity to take cruise tour to halong bay even though its quiet expensive.

            Best location on island, free vouchers, comfortable room

            We loved our stay. The location was beautiful. We were given a free upgrade to a beachfront room because it was off season. The weather was chilly and the outdoor shower was pretty frigid. The provided heat lamp didn't quite give enough warmth, but I am sure that doesn't matter much most of the year. It is within walking distance from town and they give you several vouchers such as free drinks and kayak rental. If I were to return to Cat Ba I would definitely stay there again! It is a great hotel with a gorgeous view!

            Pool Slide, Pirate Bar

            The hotel staff were courteous and helpful, despite our having reserved the rooms on Agoda 30 mins prior to arriving. This was in stark contrast to the poor service we experienced elsewhere on Cat Ba. The resort has two wonderful pools and a set of rickety but fast and fun water slides. There are excellent views of the beach (empty at 12 noon, completely packed with people at 5 pm...excellent time-lapse camera material) and a reasonable restaurant. The pirate bar is an additional plus.
