I will start by saying this, it is by no means perfect luxury accommodation. Stuff is dated and often broken or as with most places in Vietnam, repairs have all been botched and done pretty shoddily, so if this sort of stuff bothers you and you are looking for western level luxury and service, you will leave disappointed. As it...

DO NOT go here My experience was nothing but negative from the moment I arrived First, upon check-in (around 4pm) we were given a room that had not been cleaned since the last guests stayed there. Dirty sheets, trash on the floor, etc. We were given a different room that was clean. The rooms (if you don't have sea view)...

There are some points we would like to highlight after staying for 4 nights: - monkey island is rather a backpackers/hostel than a restort/hotel - guests are mainly backpackers, sleeping in a 20 bed dorm next to the bungalows (very loud at night) - the quality of the food is below average + buffet cue is too long - up...

We stayed 3 nights and had a good experience. The location of the resort is its strongest point, you have an incredible view on LAN ha bay and from there you can easily do boat cruises to LAN ha and halong bay. rooms were clean and staff friendly. Beach and sea were also clean. The hotel has a special area...
