              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

              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.

              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.

              I had great 2 days in Catba Island Resort. Everything was perfect, especially the view and beautiful rooms facing towards the sea. The staff here are very nice ( and I think the same as all people on Catba Island. They are the most friendly locals I have ever met!!) The service was very good, you can enjoy a very fresh breakfast while looking at the morning sea. Only one thing, I love bathtub but they just have standing bathroom. However I dont complain about this. Maybe next time I'll ask if they have any room ưith bathtub.

              Great view, good facilities, good service

              resort is located at the edge of cat ba town just behind a gap in the rocks, which gives it a peaceful, natural ambiance while being just a 5 min walk away from cat ba town and its restaurants. staff is friendly and helpful, but not all of them speak english well enough. 2 pools and some exciting looking water slides are just some of the resort's facilities. cons: plumbing is a problem, had to change rooms twice due to leakages and partly fungus in the bathroom. in off-season (nov), occupancy was very low and not all facilities available. breakfast buffet also offered limited choices, probably due to few guests.

              Quiet resort in Cat Ba”

              Big well maintained compound, great ocean view and surrounded by lushgreen forest.

              Check-in handed by the manager was smooth & was instructed to leave my passport with them. Passport was collected back when checked out. Used this resort as the base to visit the famous Halong Bay and found it very quiet with only few other guests during our 2 nights stay in the beginning of April '15, maybe still the low season. Stayed at superior ocean view room no 2311 with a small balcony. It has 2 pools where we didn’t see anyone using the pools while we were there. Like the well maintained big compound in this resort. Found the free wifi weak & intermittent from our room. Room is clean & daily housekeeping was done. There is a public foot path passing through the front of this resort which goes around the edge of the cliff where it’s link to Catba Sunrise Resort. Walking along this foot path offers beautiful scenery limestone rock structures near to the coastline. Breakfast served at the restaurant located at the same building as the reception hall, on the lower floor. Foods & drinks choices for breakfast are just adequate. Had dinner on 1st night at the same restaurant & menu has varieties of choices but found some of the items in the menu not available, maybe low season. Foods we ordered came in big serving but nothing to shout about. The resort is within walking distance from centre of Cat Ba town, took about 15 minutes. Walking to town is easier as it is walking downhill from the resort entrance. After checking out they offered us the hotel free shuttle mini bus to town which we really appreciated. Overall resort is good for travellers who like privacy & quiet atmosphere since found it very quiet in a secluded area. Also good for travellers with kids as there are 2 swimming pools, a mini water park with water slides & some game facilities. Choosing a base to explore or visit Halong bay would be better with one of the hotels at the town as there are many foods, drinks & shop outlet in town without the need to walk further distance.

              Catba Island and Spa is in a great location with awesome views from your balcony, plenty of room to relax and even better if you have children, two swimming pools and one has slides , tennis court and the beach is so close, the rooms are large enough to make you feel at home and i will come back and stay here , see you next time

              View, location, rooms

              Very quiet in Feb as it is out of season. Despite this the room was toasty warm and the sea view was stunning. This hotel has everything and away from the high rise monoliths in Catba town itself. However, it is only 5 mins walk from town - perfect.

              Fantastic location overlooking Halong Bay Islands, right next to a sheltered beach. Nice walk along the side of the hills which follows the bay to the fishing fleet.

              stayed 3 nights. the hotel sweeps around the hill of the bay giving great views of the beautiful islands and bay. the rooms were spotless and very spacious. used the spa for a really relaxing and professional massage. food good. would stay there again.

              Location, cleanliness, swimming pool, staff

              All round pleasant stay, the best steam room I ever been to. Good staff,who were very welcoming and provided me with free transfers. The beach itself is ok, but cat co two next to it is. Uh prettier and probably cleaner as it is less accessible. There was a very nice walking path with breathtaking views of the bay.

              Beautiful place, great staff.”

              the room was large with a great view, the polls were nice and well taken care of, the location is close enough to the town to walk but in a secluded area.

              We were there in the low season, so we practically had the place to ourselves, but we couldn't swim (to cold), so we didn't get to take full advantage of the resort. They upgraded our room though to a suite. The view from our balcony was great. The bar was kind of cool. The only thing i have to complain about is the extra services. They were too expensive. To use the tennis courts we would have needed to rent 2 rackets and the balls for $25/hr, a scooter could be rented for 190,000/hr (we walked down the street and rented one for 70,000/half day), the drinks at the bar were way over priced (about $5 for a screwdriver), the spa was really pricey too. We did get free sauna coupons though. That wasn't necessary, but a great treat. We really enjoyed our stay overall.

              Catba Island Resort & Spa good choice for family”

              Pool and garden, water slides, location

              We liked in Catba Island Resort & Spa pools and garden facilities. Even after visit we think that resort was best choice for us in CatBa: kids loved pools and water slides and it was optimally located (close to CatCo 1&2 and town). Superior Ocean View - room was rather small and next time we would probably select bigger one. We stayed in 3 places in our 2 weeks Vietnam visit and I would give lowest score to personnel in this resort (less ready to serve us with positive and happy attitude). Resort also looked a bit empty and old even that it was rather new.

              Like the hotel so near the beach , the restaurant is just in front of the beach wherein you can hear the sound of the waves while eating. For me the best hotel in Catba

              4-Star Fumble”

              4-Star Cat Ba Island Resort is a nicely located property that's not well maintained, the staff friendly but they range from poorly trained and clueless to a few exceptionally wonderful people. Our room had so many negatives but here is a few: leaky sink faucet, mold, dirty (sticky yucky messes) windows, floors, bed, sheets, bathroom, the bathroom shower head terrible, the toilet seat disgusting, the desk and desk chair not matched to work together, and so on. For my EXPECTATIONS of a expensive 4-Star resort this is a 4-star fumble. No bueno. I travel all over, 65 countries to date and this "resort" definitely DISappointing.
