We came to the monkey island and we thought it was a good idea to stay night at the monkeys island resort, and it was a magnificient idea. The dorms are cozy, beatiful, a good balance between eco-friendly and comfortable. The service was perfect and they were there for us

We had a short but very pleasent stay in Monkey Island Resort. The view from the bungalows is fantastic and you have the chance to go for a walk or hiking arround the resort. The bungalows are kind of rustique but everything was working. They also offer a Lan Ha Boat tour full

Wonderful stay. V/ hard to weed out the tours rammed down our throats. When we read that it was out of the way, away from the hoards, within nature and reasonably priced, we were all over it! Loved the service at the resort, meals great, offered free transfers to and from Cat Ba

Peaceful haven from Hanoi. Great service great food. Flower made sure we were always comfortable and happy. All the staff were great light hearted & fun. Our daughter loved the warm pool & the fire in the restaurant made winter weather more enjoyable. Thank you Monkey Island

We loved our stay here - way better than we had expected. Despite rainy weather the kids swam in the indoor pool and we played games in the restaurant. The hotpot dinner was a great experience and delicious - and breakfast was also great. The rooms spacious with stunning view of

We booked the 3 day 2 night tour from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay & Cat Ba/ monkey island with one night on the boat with all food and activities included- kayaking, swimming, Ti Top Island and the caves. The boat went through a lot of the islands and docked up by one island for the night. There was squid fishing or if you prefer kareoke then there was that in the evening- our boat was pretty chill so no kareoke! The tour guide was incredible! After this we got taken to Cat Ba where there was a driver already waiting to take us to the harbour for the transfer to the island- the boat journey to the island was no longer than 10 minutes (a lil choppy- however no big boats can go there) The island was pretty decent, we stayed in a wooden bungalow facing the gardens, had all the basics for a short stay. Here we had free food again, kayaking and a trip to the monkey beach- you can kayak over if you fancy! All of this came to £180 each however there were cheaper options with accommodation!

The fees are not much. Maybe 50 thou. It’s a cheap family day out, that is why we went. I can’t really remember which means it wasn’t much. It’s usually my wife that picks the high pice adventure activities and I certainly remember them. Overall it is a day trip on a bike, it is cheap, be organised and work out your motorbike directions the day before. Food etc. is available, cheap and good. I hate monkeys, they have big teeth and steal food. The boat ride around rabbit island is worth it and not expensive ( around 600 thou.) it is still worth it. Overall it is a mini motorcycle road trip 3 hours there, 3 hours back. It is an short introduction to short road trips in Vietnam. If you are a beginner, do it, great for navigation, speed limits and short introductory rides. Enjoy.

We did an overnight on a boat that sails around Ha Long Bay the night before going to monkey island resort so we were dropped off by that touring company. As for getting back to Hanoi, we asked the staff at Monkey Island and they set it all up for us including taxis, ferries etc and the costs... I would send them an email or a call!

Dear Spacelord, Thanks for your question The quietest months at our resort is at winter from November to February. When you stay at Monkey Island Resort, you can both climb or do kayaking to the other beach of the island to see monkeys. It's just about 20 minutes Thanks Kelvin
