Unfortunately we spent only one night at this beautiful resort, but all was great. Nice inside heated pool and dinner was very good. The room itself was huge with very nice bathroom. Very much recommended.

We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. There are signs of wear - the resort has been in operation for years - but it is still quite pleasant. Mini golf course is not well maintained but otherwise everything was fine.

From the time we checked in, everything was peaceful and relaxing. I could not take any photo that reflected the true beauty of this resort. The breakfast buffet by far was the best I have had in a very long time. Rooms are spacious and you feel like your secluded from others. I will definitely come back.

The resort was very luxurious with many good amenities. The restaurants served very good food at reasonable prices (considering it was a resort). The staff were very friendly and helpful. The pool and gym was good but some of the equipment is getting a bit old. We will definitely go there again when back in Vietnam.

We had a really nice stay at the Emeralda resort, enjoying the room and the swimming pool. Breakfast could be better with more vietnamese dishes and less western food. Plus the resort being far from the city, you're likely to be obliged to have dinner at the restaurant where prices are very high compared to vietnamese standards (3 to 4...

This Resort is more touristic like the others we visit before. Most of the staff speak a good English and the service is quite good. Restaurant & Spa are modern and the selection is great. Food is really good and especially the noodle dishes are delicious. Rooms are huge and super clean... perfect conditions to have a nice time.

We only ended up here because our trip to Halong Bay was cancelled and what a delightful surprise it was. Idyllic, beautiful surroundings (Halong Bay of the Land), terrific resort, friendly, helpful staff, excellent food all at a reasonable price. Only (slight) problem was the taxi driver finding the place, but it is remote.
