rip off
View and the beach are nice, but price they charge for accomodation, food and other stuff is way too much compare to what you get. I would't visit again.

Beautiful location
The staff and the location are definitely what made this resort so wonderful! My main problem with the resort is the food, there was very little options for breakfast and the rest of the meals (bar the fish) were very westernised and tasted incredibly bland given the cost of this accommodation I would of expected a better quality of meal especially given that it is not possible to bring your own food. I understand that this is a relatively new resort and it may be difficult to bring some foods into the resort due to the location however it would definitely of completed our stay and boosted our rating had the food been of better quality. Besides this I would recommend staying the location really is beautiful and the staff could not of been more friendly/helpful!

Very poor value for money
Could be improved who very little effort. Cold, unsafe in the extreme, and no information provided about what there is to do. Food very average and not cheap.

Treat
Sea view, location, free shuttle
My friend and I are two young backpackers that decided to have one 'splurge' after weeks of $3 hostels and honestly the facilities in the hostels were better. There is very limited wifi in the reception, boat to the Island felt very unsafe (we are sailors so used to the sea) especially when you have to jump from boat onto a slippery rock, ac is only on at night, no hot water, water is very expensive. Our major issue was having to pay an extortionate amount for food and drinks - we were interrogated by staff about food from off island leaving us uncomfortable and not feeling welcome. The resort is used a lot for tours on halong bay and they definitely feel prioritised. I cannot fault the location as it is a stunning bay and all tours from cat ba seem to stop on monkey island - so it's a definite hotspot and we still do not regret our stay here. It was not worth the price we paid - there's rubbish everywhere and left over construction debris scattered everywhere. The staff are trying however with the choppy sea they all appeared overwhelmed and most of the time very unprofessional

Relaxing and quiet
View, walk, food
The rooms were lovely. There was a lovely walk to see the monkeys. A lovely, relaxing place. Not flash but very quiet.

Above average
I booked this resort and also made a reservation for group tour for two. It was poorly arranged(basically too much waiting time) and they failed to provide the transportation back to Hanoi on time. I was first informed to leave around 11am, which was good for me, but then they later told me that they failed to do so and told my partner and I to wait until 3pm. I was really exhausted so just organized a private transportation which cost me a couple of hundred dollars. The room itself was clean but there was restriction to use electricity only from 9pm or so (cannot remember correctly.)So if you cannot stand hot weather, you might want to be careful. The room was very humid and hot but the AC did not work properly even after 9pm so we tried to make a call to the reception but they didnt anwer. We had to go to the reception and they just said they forgot to turn on the electricity for us. It was quite surprising. The AC did not work for a while even from then, and took about an hour since it started working properly. The beach was also not what I expected, a little dirty. There were unidentified trash(quite alot of them. have no idea what they were) on the water near where people were swimming so we could not get in. Besides, I thought I could see some monkeys there because when I googled it, it seems like i could easily see monkeys there. but when I asked the reception I had to go trekking to find some monkeys and even then i will only be able to see them if i was lucky. I was already tired of some happenings at the resort (mentioned earlier) so did not bother to go find monkeys. Anyway, I dont really want to say mean things but this was pretty much the experience I had at this resort. The staffs were really nice but I was really disappointed with the inefficient and irresponsible service they provided. Hope others will not have problems like us.

Past it's best
Location location location
My main issue with this place is it's basically a back packers but charging 3 star prices. We paid over $100 for a double with an ensuits that I wouldn't shower my dog off in, it was filthy, mouldy, with holes in the wall semi patched up with paper cello taped over the hole but even that was half off and they couldn't be bothered to patch it up properly. I wouldn't mind if I'd paid $30 but I do mind when paying considerable cash and when it's pimped up to be something special. We could also hear a rodent scrabbling behind our wooden walls. Beach is very pretty but too close to the floating fishing village to want to swim as they chuck all their debris in the sea. We wouldn't return , it needs major investment.

Beautiful Monkey Island
The location is absolutely beautiful and it's a tranquil escape from the hustle and bustle of Catba and Halong with more character than both
Restful, it felt like the middle of nowhere and the wooden huts had heaps of character. Swimming and kayaking in the bay during the day and relaxing with a cocktail at night on our balcony was bliss
