    The staff were very friendly and attentive. The food was very tasty and there was a good variety at all meals. The evening meal was superb. The room was comfortable and the view of Halong Bay was amazing! The trips including kayaking, a beach, mountain and cave were enjoyable.

    Sometimes WiFi connection was weak
