I wouldn't call this a luxury resort. It's spread over a very large area so rooms are spacious but quite tatty and old and Wifi is very slow. Breakfast is good and the pool bar is nice with ok and reasonably priced food. We were on full day trips so didn't get to try the spa or

We just spent two nights at the Emeralda. A fine experience specially considering the otherwise disturbed environment near by. Cement plants, traffic, all vanished once you enter the resort. Two high points of the Emeralda First, the organic restaurant Second, the heated

We had a guide and driver and found it very convenient, especially not knowing the terrain and locations of the sites we were visiting. Walking would be quite a trek, even to the nearest sites and I think cycling would be quite a ride as well. I would recommend using a guide who also can expedite ticketing and show you some shortcuts. You might want to check with the concierge at Emeralda. Good luck.

You can do but they're quite expensive, we hired a moped and did it ourselves. There's tam coc which is really good, the ancient capital and then bai dinh pagoda ...and van long nature reserve is just up the road which is beautiful 😊how long are you planning on staying for?

The hotel will arrange transport but there are plenty of taxis outside the station which are cheaper than hotel transport.

The kids play area is chargeable, prices depend on which game/activity they choose. Something like 2-3 bucks per game. They have connecting rooms but all with twin beds. Not so convenient eh?
