Not worth the trip
For starters it's 3 hr drive from Hanoi airport and it only says 90mins on their website. The hotel driver who picked me up did not speak one word of english which made me nervous bc I couldn't ask him any questions. Its not 4 stars by American standards at all. I had a few spa treatments-all done by the same girl who was ok but I think the only person who works in the spa. Pool is under construction and drilling there all day so I couldnt sit out and relax there, nor eat lunch outside by the one restaurant open for lunch. Food was meh. Weekend was packed with local families. I couldnt enjoy breakfast because all the kids screaming and running and sticking their hands in the food. I ended up checking out early loosing 2 nights payment bc I prepaid and booked thru

Very Good8.0
Definitely a place to slow down, a must
Great facilities, proximity to Van Long Reserve (500km), and buffet. Room was spacious and clean for a family of 3. We enjoyed the kids' club, billiards, Organic Restaurant, bungalow pool, indoor and outdoor pools, gym and yoga. Great place to get away from fast paced Hanoi. Rented bikes to ride along the reserve. Expect a $12usd taxi from train station. We overstayed by a day as there is not too much going on in Ninh Binh (we were there 4 full days and 3 nights). About 25 min from ninh binh and 35 minutes taxi from Tam coc.

Great Resort Hotel for a Quiet Family Getaway
Hotel was very inviting with its serene atmosphere. Hotel staffs were very polite and accommodating. When checking-in I made the last minute request to change the room type and the hotel managed to find a room that met my needs. Close proximity to the Tran An was perfect for a short trip outside of Hanoi.

Family Two Night Stay at the Emerelda
The Emerelda was the perfect place to stay. The rooms were beautiful with the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We booked a one day tour which we enjoyed a lot. The guide was helpful and friendly. The hotel’s restaurant serves good food and the pool was in a lovely setting. The gardens were relaxing to walk around and the lake added to the peaceful atmosphere. My elderly parents also enjoyed the crazy golf ! I’d recommend the Emerelda to all.
