        Location, service, rooms, restaurant, beach, walks I liked everything! The staff above all praised! Will definitely return to this hotel! Cozy bed, smart internet, luxurious service, nice interior of public areas. Shuttle to the pier on Kat Ba. It is unfortunate that we stayed only for 1 night. Will definitely be back for a week!

        The staffs were so friendly and helpful. The rool was nice and we had a stunning view on the Halong Bay. However the other customers (from Vietnam) were spitting on the floor, blowing their noses in the swimming pool. Quiet different from what I was expecting.

        Excellent”

        Hotel lata świetności ma już za sobą, ale miła obsługa i przyjemne otoczenie wynagradzają pewne niedogodności. Bardzo dobra kuchnia, śniadania obfite, ale jakość daje trochę do życzenia.

        Great value for money. We had a lovely view from our room and the staff were very helpful. The location is ok. Food options at the hotel and around weren’t good and it was overpriced as you’d expect for the area. Maybe better deals out there.

        comfy stay..”

        all in all it was good value for money.. i really like the shower area.. breakfast could be improved a bit.. one thing made me really sad was the housekeeping staff kept chatting in a loud voice in front of my room for hours (not kidding) in the morning!!..

        Resort at the great spot ”

        Individual staff at Lapaz resort is very friendly and helpful. The resort is also at the great location on the private island. It’s the perfect place for the travelers who are looking for non busy and crowded area. There’s one thing we hope hotel will get it done in the future though that they manage to set up lamps around the resort compound. I think it will mainly be essential for solo travelers. Hope it happens. I’ll choose to stay there again when I next visit Halong bay.

        A dump”

        Every room has a musty/mildew/mold smell. The first room smelled like this. I changed to a different room which smelled the same except it was drenched in some chemical cleaner to mask the smell but the smell was still there. They advertise a sea view room and charge more but you cannot see the sea, just trees blocking the view. A complete rip-off

        Clean beautiful rooms but lacking basic amenities ”

        Great location. Amid beautiful setting. Service ok but not so professional. Bath tub not usable because of broken valve, water flow very weak. A few mosquitos in bedroom! Beautiful beach but not well kept: a few plastic bottles and dead rats littered around. Nagative points easy to get rid of due to fact that the resort has not yet fully functional!

        Dated place xlose to cruise harbor”

        Not too close to harbor to hear boats, not too far to walk. Was nicely designed and pool os best part of hotel. Rooms are dated with little signs of maintenamce. Wss a 4 star. Rapidly approaching a 3. It is no wonder why so many visitors to Halong Bay choose to stay in Hanoi and make the 12 hour round trip/cruise. Not many good choices in Halong and 3 x the price!

        Older style”

        The hotel staff out did themselves to help me with a number of things. The hotel itself is quite old with villas showing their age however rooms are large but wooden floor and furniture around could do with an upgrade. The pool is fine but rooms lose a clear view of Halong Bay as palm trees obscure view. Restuarant for dinner is very average and breakfast is ok nothing special. A great location, free transport to boat and fantastic staff make this still worthwhile
