Lovely resort for relax and honey moon”

The best way to enjoy life

my wife and i came here to stay 1 night for our honey moon trip. almost, the resort is very nice. the location is great. it is out of noisy life in the main land. it is 2 kilometers from cat ba town. we got there by a mini bus and tourist boat of the company. the food here was so good and plentiful. we liked the way the staffs here behaved and talked to the customers coming here. they were friendly and humorous. the beach is nice and the water here is pure and no rubbish. it is rather different from beach and water in ha long bay and cat ba town. bungalows on the island are unique and special. the most of bungalow are made of wood. the equipments in the room are new and very good. in our room, we got tv, pc, internet, air conditioner, shampoo... the monkey restaurant is in the central of the island. it is very convenient to get food. i like activities on the island: kayaking, climbing to visit monkeys, billiard, football, volleyball, swimming... the service here was excellent. it is valuable for spending money great, i will come back!

great place to relax”

the room was on stilts and detached and the view was a 1000000 pounds

This place is difficult to get to. All things in life worth doing are like that in my experience. Taxi. plane, hotel in haiphong, taxi, ferry, xe om, boat. That was our journey from hcm. But it really is paradise, in the morning we ordered our food for lunch and evening and the boat went to town and the fish farm. We went back to cat ba island for the morning and MOODY the manager escorted us and mad sure we got a scooter for hire at the correct pricr, not the tourist rip off price, We are getting married in october and going to bali. If the resort in bali is same as this we will both be very happy. The service and friendly people is amazing. We were there for 3 days and all the staff called us by our first names very intimate and homely

Great place, very good service”

Only hotel on a small island, very good service, accomodation at different price levels. Not really a resort as such, more a lbungalow with different standards, depending on a price you want to pay. Good place for a few quiet days with book on a beach.

I can recommend this place for everyone who looks for a couple of days of relaxation, swimming, reading. There are two beaches, Monkey Island bungalows with one restaurant....and a lot of sun, sea, peace and quiet. No bars, shops, we did not even see the monkeys. It was a great choice for resting after few weeks of travelling. It is also a great alternative to staying on Catba Island, which has worse beaches and crowded city center. Staff, Manager speaks very good english. Food was very good, however there is only one place to eat, so not much choice. All in all very positive if you have good weather and if you look for a quiet break.

secluded beach, free breakfast, free transfer from cat ba island

I really enjoyed our stay here. They have a free transfer boat from Cat Ba island to their island. They will provide details via email. The cottage was a bit basic for $70, just a bed and a bathroom. It was clean, and they have a/c during the night. There are a few activities such as a gazebo at one end of the island overlooking everything. The beach was alright, a bit rocky and a little foamy, but there were few people swimming so it felt very secluded. You can also kayak to the other side of the island where the waters are a bit cleaner. There is a dinner buffet for $15/person. Average food. Overall I very much liked the secluded feel of Monkey Island. Would recommend!

Remote location is good for those who want to retire and take a break from people and noise. Staff friendly and attentive. Manager Mr. James can professionally organized tour, and will advise on any issue. We owe him a very lot. Do not forget that it is an island - do not be surprised insects and animals. We went there to relax, and we got it. On the island you can entertain yourself kayaking, billiards, table tennis, darts. There is a trail inter the mountain to the opposite side of the island, where live monkeys and equipped another beach.

Isolated but relaxing hotel”

On the beach, friendly staff, relaxing

The resort is extremly isolated, but great if you are looking for a few days of relaxation. However, had our transport to Monkey Island not have been organised by another cruise company we were with beforehand, we would have found it extremely difficult to get to the island. We booked a superior room which was very beach resort-like, however inside it was very small, felt moist and when it rained at night, the water leaked through the roof onto our bed. The receptionist was great at helping us though, the next day they kindly upgraded us to a large room overlooking the beach. We found the food in the restaurant to be really average and very, very overpriced compared to what we had experienced throughout the rest of Vietnam. Great to go for a walk through the island though, very scenic view of Halong Bay.

This is a new resort so facilities are very good, both for leisure and business. We chose the deluxe sea view bungalow to stay in. The staffs were welcoming and friendly. The resort was in a great location, away out from noisy area in the main land. The rooms were clean and spacious with bright airy bathrooms featuring a large corner bath and shower! The beds were super comfortable with amazing pillows and linen; Free internet; air conditioner! Restaurant on the central house was excellent. It was probably the tastiest breakfast and lunch I have tasted in a long while. Plentiful activities around the resort. Immediate response and favorable outcome from management when any problems were faced. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone.

However quality of cousine wasbad: breakfast is poor and lunch and dinner are rather costly. Dineer buffet costed 15 usd.

Island life”

Location, activities, view

We stayed for one night at Monkey Island Resort. Getting to the resort from Halong City was quite a struggle. We read forums before going saying to get a hold of the hotel before coming so they could help with arrangements to get there. Unfortunately, after numerous attempts at contacting the hotel we still did not get a hold of them or any response via email. Nevertheless, when we finally got there, the location and view of Halong Bay was breathtaking. We kayaked, hiked, swam, played pool and table tennis and relaxed. The food was basic but fairly decent value for money. The bar was very quiet (I think most people were on Island time so went to bed early). Some staff were friendly and helpful. Particularly an elderly groundsman however, some of the front counter staff seemed quite harassed (although they werent busy). For the time it took to get there, another night would have been ideal. Overall, a beautiful location and relaxing.

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

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.

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!
