9.3 Excellent
Pros: Good location in central phong nha. Good restaurant choices nearby. They were kind enough to let us check in early (around 0500) for a small fee. The breakfast was nice, particularly the banana pancake. The A/C was slow to cool the room, and the room was not cleaned/bed was not made during the day which was slightly disappointing. Overall a good experience and good location. The staff were lovely and arranged a driver for us to visit the botanic gardens + paradise cave (he waited for us between stops). Would recommend
Cons: Room was not cleaned in the day time. A/C worked, but was slow to cool a room (not too much of a problem)

Pros: This place is the best! The rooms are like 5 star hotel rooms, huge, with huge comfy beds, air conditioning, TV, some with terrace, all absolutely spotlessly clean. The best yet is the POOL, so perfect for just relaxing in and refreshing yourself after a day exploring on one of their well maintained scooters you can rent. And to top it all off there is also a pool table! And cheap beers! So much fun! The staff were also 5 stars, the lovely guy who takes care of reception spoke impeccable English and was so nice and helpful. All the other staff on site too were all so lovely, everyone really took care of us and looked after us from the moment they picked us up from the bus station in town to the moment they dropped us off again at no extra charge! The menu seemed to cater for Westerners only and lacked Vietnamese options, but these guys were so awesome, every time we saw them eating their Vietnamese meal we pointed and asked if we could have the same and they so kindly obliged us every time letting us try their delicious dishes we wouldn't otherwise have had. Oh and did I mention they have two adorable puppies on site all you need for your daily puppy petting needs! :) Don't hesitate, book this place before it gets booked up!

Pros: The place was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was nice, Zu who worked on reception was very nice and helpful. They also offer free pickup from buses or trains etc.
Cons: The property is located quite far out of Phong nha. You are able to rent motorbikes from them but if not you must get a private car or motorbike driver from the homestay This can become quite expensive and varied from 120-140d each way. There is no grab in the area so this is your only option. There was also no atmosphere while we were there.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice pool, clean rooms, good working air condition and very helpful staff?
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice hotel but not good location. Swimming pool much smaller than it looks like in the pictures but open 24/7.
Cons: Transfer to homestay from Phong Nha for free, transfer back for 100k VND. Breakfast ok but meals for lunch the worst in Vietnam so far. Rented motorbike for 120k VND in bad conditions.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: From our arrival at 3am, the owner picked us up and took us to the property where we checked in with Du and he let us have a much needed rest. Upon waking up and having a fabulous breakfast, Du helped us plan our stay and gave us great recommendations. We booked the Roc Mon tour through him and highly recommend it. The poll was a great escape after days in caves, and the family dinner was spectacular. We're rented scooters as well through them and traveled the town and some caves at our leisure. The location is a little farther out of the city meaning it was quiet at night but a short drive away to the main town. Definitely recommend it.
Cons: Nothing!
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Decent pool and you can rent bikes really cheap. They let us check in at 6am for no extra cost which was great after an over night train.

Pros: WOW. What else can be said about Phong Nha Lake House Resort. We visited Phong Nha to sight see the local cave systems and stunning scenery but little did we know that our hotel matched and surpassed that in every way! We had no idea how beautiful the resort was and how amazing all the staff were! They made our honeymoon trip so special and our accommodation is possibly the best I have ever stayed in. Stunning views from your room allow to check the lake which includes swimming and kayakng as part of your stay. The resort also boasts an impressive restaurant which caters for everyone. I strongly recommend a visit to Phong Nha for the cave excursions (which you can book via the resort) and for quite possibly, the most relaxing stay we had whilst travelling through Vietnam. Thank you for an amazing time!
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely wonderful choice. Nice pool, bar and patio area. Villa was gorgeous and had heaps of space. Staff were brilliant, so much fun but excellent service as well. We had motorbikes so could get into town and around ok but could imagine it would be a bit restricting in terms of doing some shopping, lunch out or getting massages if you don't have wheels. Having said that, the food and drink was all very nice and not too expensive at the hotel.
Cons: Wish pool bar was operating during happy hour.

Cons: - location is quite off the town, but its good when you going to rent a motorbike, bike (for free) - little tiny thing, so uncomfy pillows:)))

9.5 Excellent
Pros: I love the enthusiasm of the staff. From making sure our rooms are close together to recommending us restaurants and giving us traveling tips, they do it with a smile and with kindness. We were also pleasantly surprised at how roomy and comfortable the rooms are for the price. Both of our rooms have 3 windows and both have river view. I personally really like the yellow lights in the rooms and the lobby. The hotel's location in the city center is perfect for walking around as it is close to some great lunch, dinner, breakfast and coffee spots. Overall, we are very satisfied with our stay. Nam Long Hotels is a family business and we did feel like family there :).
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast, staff such as Mee and Tai
Cons: Lighting in room
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The employees at Nam Long Plus were incredibly friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless, and had a beautiful view of the beach. We enjoyed a hot breakfast and coffee each morning, both of which were included in the price of our room. Other than one situation with a shuttle to Hue, we had a great stay at Nam Long Plus.
Cons: We asked one of the employees to help us get a bus to Hue, which was 150,000 VND per person. We were told that paying for a taxi to the city bus station, for the city bus, and for another taxi from the Hue bus station to our hotel would be about that price anyway. The "bus" ended up being a shuttle/van, which served multiple purposes, including making deliveries. The bus driver kept piling people onto the van beyond its capacity. At one point, there were 5 people sitting in each row, which was intended for 4 people max. Overall, the shuttle to Hue that was set up by Nam Long Plus was unsafe and overpriced, and had we known that this was what the "private, air conditioned bus" would be, we would've just opted for the city bus.

7.0 Good
Pros: The room was pretty nice. It’s next door to the noisiest backpackers hostel in town so I would suggest if you like to party & stay in centre town you go to Tiger Tiger, it’s good
Cons: There was really just one member staff. She was working day & night. She did her very best. She needs a break & some support. I haven’t stayed at any other hotel with so few staff. She sleeps in reception. The only other ‘staff member’ who gave me a warm greeting turned out to be a travel agent & they were really trying to hard sell the packages which I think are both unnecessary & over priced. If you can ride a scooter everything is accessible.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredibly friendly! I took the night bus and arrived at 4 in the morning, and the concierge was sleeping on her bed behind the front desk, so I woke her up (they told me to do this upon booking) and she checked me in and took me up to my room. I basically had the whole floor to myself, it was lovely and the wifi worked well. The breakfast that was included was also great! I had a delicious banana pancake and tea.
Cons: The only problem I ran into was that I booked a bus from the front desk for the following night. The bus was supposed to pick me up at 4:00 am, so I ready and waiting outside at 3:40 am. Unfortunately, my bus didn't stop to pick me up, so I had to pay for a different bus ticket. I am not sure if this was a miscommunication on the hotels part or if it was an error of the bus driver.

Pros: Everything was just perfect. The hotel has a great swimming pool, long sandy beach. The personnel was very helpful to organize motorbike rend and a trip.

Pros: Linh is such a lovely host! She welcomed us even we arriving at 4am. They picked us at the bus stop at at such early hour and helped us choosing the best cave tour. She is a former cave guide so she knows all about them. The tour was private for us and definitely the best experience in our 3 week trip. The guesthouse is lovely, very comfortable and spacious. Gotta thank Linh and her lovely family.

Pros: We were impressed by the cleanliness of the house. Ruc Mon Cave 2D1N exploring tour recommended by Linh the host was the most amazing experience we had when traveling in Vietnam. Linh and her family members are very kind and accommodating, willing to help us with nitty gritty requests without demanding any return for extra charge.
Cons: None
7.5 Good
Pros: the location is why i chose this homestay as it's on the river. the main contact Linh was very helpful. Her english and willingness to help were faultless Also it is just outside the main Phong Nha township and easy bike distance. nice spot
Cons: Sometimes a little to much "home" and too little "stay" being a family place. As of early July 2019 Linh is 8+ months pregnant with baby #2 and was understandably at times unavailable. The family were friendly but not really helpful with normal everyday needs of guests when Linh was not around.

Pros: Linh was an excellent host, she made us feel very welcome and was really useful for information about the area. Having been a tour guide herself she was able to recommend us cave experiences and the one we chose was fantastic and not a well known one so there was nobody else there. Also she sorted our washing and gave us a lift for free into the town centre for our departure. Free bicycles to borrow and food was excellent. Overall great stay and would definitely recommend!
Cons: Bit of a walk from the centre of town with our heavy bags (thought it close on the map but a far walk in reality). Also the ants :/
9.3 Excellent
Pros: Cozy home is how it felt, almost like I was a visiting friend, right from being picked up at the bus station at 4:30am. It was close enough to the town center, just a short ride on one of their free bikes, but just far enough away so it was quiet, & right across the street from the river. There may have been the odd cosmetic flaw, but the rooms were clean, & beds comfortable. On more than 1 occasion I was asked to join the family to eat, it really made me feel at home. Breakfasts were good, one morning maybe the best pho I had the whole month I was in Vietnam. WiFi worked fine. I chose this place after reading comments about My Linh's knowledge of the caves in the national park. After speaking I took her advice & did Ruc Mon cave, & there was no problem with me modifying my booking. The trip was one of the most challenging & amazing experiences I've had in my life, thanks for steering me that way:-) One of these days I'll make it back to Vietnam, & Green Riverside Cosy Home will be my first choice for Phong Nha.
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, quiet and clean rooms. Ling and her family are really friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a nice family dinner and spend a really good time on a perfect organised tour :)

They make up for any minor shortcomings. They even waited outside with us the day we left to flag down our bus to Dong Hoi.
Cons: There was a limited amount of choices for breakfast, which was fine, but there was no beverage included. We had to pay for our coffee or juice in the mornings. Also over 3 nights we never got our rooms cleaned, including the overflowing wastepaper basket in the bathroom. When I asked to exchange our towels they were very quick to help, and so kind. Maybe we were supposed to empty our own wastepaper baskets? These are all minor problems though.

The second I got back to Chay lap, they transported me to hospital with 4 of their staff including the managers who stayed with me the whole time including being transported to a hospital further away. I write this as the head manager is in the same room as me at 3AM after I had to spend the night at the hospital. I never write reviews for anything, but this was different. Never have I ever felt so welcomed and grateful for people I just met. Amazing service and amazing people. Traveling alone could be scary especially after the accident I had, but they made me feel like family. If You are traveling to Phong Nha, there isn’t a thought in my mind on staying somewhere else.
10.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: My buddy and I stayed here for three days and I have to say it was the best homestay I have ever stayed at hands down. It is located on a small farm in a beautiful area in great proximity to all of the caves and sites in the area. They did an awesome job of making sure my friend and I enjoyed our time. We had zero plans when we got there and they arranged for us to do a day tour with Jungle Boss (awesome way to explore caves) and helped us rent motor bikes to explore the area. The food was also great, most items came directly from the farm….. try the Hot Pot However what made the farmstay so enjoyable was the staff! I honestly do not know if I have met nicer people who were very grateful to have us and went out of their way to ensure we had a good time. Special shout out to Moon and Nhu (sorry if I spelled the names wrong) who were awesome! I highly recommend staying at this homestay. It is in a great area and will allow you to experience an area of Vietnam outside of the city/ocean environment.
Cons: no complaints.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The bungalow was super nice and clean. The hotel spot is wonderful, in the middle of the jungle. A dock when you can get a kayak is 5 mins walking.
Cons: Breakfast is limited after 9 am.
7.5 Good
Pros: Our caban was very nice. The tour that was organised was great!
Cons: The boiler for the hot water was not turned on before we arrived so our first showers were cold ones. When we took bikes out no one gave us any tips to out route we should take. I felt that information and organisation was lacking for the price that we paid.
