Pros: The hosts are professional and utterly friendly. If possible, pick the bungalow by the river, an afternoon chilling next to the river bank would heal your soul. :) Also, the dogs are cute, pet them pls.
Cons: The air-con could be improved.
Cons: Great place, Clean and close to the national park.
Pros: In another world , really good
Pros: It was the most relaxing stay we’ve had I. In Vietnam. The bungalows have aircon, a wetroom n gorgeous balconies looking into river. The service is top notch, the host assisted us so much with transport we are forever grateful. Bikes are freely available and great for exploring and As a fussy eater - dinners n lunches were great n I’ve had no trouble at all with their great food options. It’s simple n comfortable- basic but cozy n indulgent all at once. A peace of heaven really. We’d go back in a flash.

Pros: The host was very friendly and helpful.
Pros: Beautiful view over the river, with nice sitting areas to relax. In walking distance to the entrance of the national park and very helpful staff. Everything could be organized for us, also the bus trips from Dalat and to HCMC. Good breakfast and lovely dinners!
Pros: Very peaceful and quiet. Right on the river! Food was great!
Pros: Luan is very friendly and extremely reactive and helpful. He takes care of everything from the moment you book a room at the Green Hope lodge: he will help with the transport, organise trips in the national park, incl. the Wild gibbons trek, ensure that you get packed lunch if it is needed etc. The room we had was very spacious and clean and the bed was very comfy. We had great time at the lodge and would definitely come back.
Cons: A shower curtain in the bathroom would be useful.
Pros: Great location and friendly staff who went out of their way to help us and give advice. Thanks! :)
Cons: Mosquitoes! This is to be expected at the location so be prepared! - The room has air-con + a fan to help and also netting around the bed which is great.
Pros: Nice quiet, tucked away location; very nice view of the river with little palapa shelters with chairs to hang out on. There aren't a lot of food options in the town but the food at the lodge is quite tasty and a good value. The owners were super friendly and helpful, the husband in particular gave us an absolutely fantastic route recommendation for riding our motorcycles to Dalat the next day.
Cons: The brick bungalows (with fan and mosquito netting) are very rustic/basic. We didn't mind this, the beds were comfortable and we slept well, and I think they're good value for the money. Just be aware of what you're getting.
Pros: Location to the park is excellent and only a few hundred meters from from the ferry. Luan is a wealth of knowledge of the park and the available tours. His English is superb which makes discussing the tours so much easier and so helpful on how to get to the park and away again. This is a great place to stay for the best traveller/trekking experience. Rooms are basic but comfortable, but let's face it, you're there for the park and the wildlife, not to spend all day lazing around in the room. It's got everything you need and the food is good too.
Pros: Go to the Crocodile Lakr
Cons: Go to the Crocodile Lakr
Pros: The Green Hope lodge is a wonderful base to explore Cat Tien. Luan is very helpful organizing everything for the travelers from dawn to dusk (he could actually use a little bit of help!). The facilities are rustic but perfect for Cat Tien travelers, and we stayed with our 2.5 year old child and it was perfectly fine for her. I liked the location next to the river, crossing the river each morning, and the river tour organized from the pier of the Green Hope Lodge was wonderful. The family running the hotel also offers a fixed menu dinner that was very good.
Cons: The breakfast could have been much better.
Pros: Friendly and helpful family that runs the place. Nice rooms by the river across to the NP. Got help to organise trips in the NP and lifts on motorbikes back and forth to the ferry. We ate all our meals at the restaurant at the lodge. Good food and big portions, but not many variations.

Cons: - some days it was the poorest breakfast we ever had...on the other hand it was delicious other days
Pros: Location is good, food is okay
Pros: The facility was basic but kept in decent conditions. Host spoke fair English and was exceptionally nice and helpful. My stay was very short but I truly enjoyed it.
Cons: The toilet could have been better cleaned before I arrived. It looked like used before my arrival and not cleaned. But that's the only really thing I wasn't happy about.
Pros: nice family, the room is big, the bed confortable, the guest house is just near to the park entry ! i recommend this guest house !

Pros: The staff were great, couldnt do enough for you, if a stayed an extra day and went on river tour around cat tein.

Pros: I believe this is the best accommodation at Cat Tien, everyone serves warmly.
Cons: We stayed at 3 rooms totally, 2 rooms not quite clean and we found toad in both toilets. Nevertheless, that is no big deal and this little defeat not affected our satisfactory to this place and service.
Pros: The food is amazing. Also the tour guide was very nice and spoke English well. The staff was kind and helpful. Very nice place to stay!
Cons: Do not take the cheapest room. It is too pricy for what you get.
Pros: Great location right next door to park entrance and river view. The bungalow was very spacious. Super friendly staff!
Cons: Food options were a bit limited though fine given remote location and for a few days.
Pros: Friendly staff, very helpful and close to the Cat Tien National Park. The food is good and breakfast is generous.
Pros: Great location, food and friendly staff
Cons: Over priced for what it is.
Pros: Great location nice pool nice rooms
Cons: Try to scam guests into paying for overpriced tours, did not give a wake up call even though promised they would, did not want to honor free bike rental as advertised, aggressively tried to get us to eat at their overpriced restaurant, checked into standard room and then immediately say you want to see a better room and then show “what you could have” for a million VND more
Pros: Overall a good 3 star hotel for the location. The restaurant is in a beautiful old wooden house that the owner relocated to the property. The hotel has the basics, the room was quite large, 2 bedrooms and a lounge but the bathroom is outside. The one bedroom had a window opening but no glass which allowed all the insects in at night with no mosquito netting so a little uncomfortable but the AC's worked really well and the WiFi was very good for the location! The staff mostly speak English and are friendly,
Cons: Needed the glass in the window in the front bedroom and the bicycles need a lot of maintenance! Typical of SEA!
Pros: The location is just right on the main road, very close to the ferry so it's pretty convenient. The restaurant is nicely designed, and has a good atmosphere. The employees are very friendly and helpful throughout the entire place.
Cons: When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised how nice the hotel presented, considering this is a rather rural area. However, it soon turned into a bad experience...We had booked a twin room - like other rooms this is located at the basement. While we came to escape the hustle and bustle of HCMC for a couple of days, other visitors didn't quite seem to have the same in mind. They took full advantage of the drum kit and karaoke set next to the reception area. If that wasn't enough to keep everyone awake, then surely the kids running around in the corridors certainly ensured nobody would fall asleep. It also doesn't help that the rooms are situated right below the entertainment deck, meaning anyone running, jumping or dancing in front of the stage can be heard and felt in the room.
Pros: Remote area, not too many tourists. Close to the river crossing. Passionate owner, and very helpful staff - very child friendly. The pool overlooking the river was great. Help and advice arranging a trek to the crocodile lakes. Evening meals were very good.
Cons: Breakfast was not to our taste - it caters more for Vietnamese taste. We were restricted to bread and jam and fruit. Could do with rack to dry towels and swim stuff.
Pros: Great staff. Great tours available and good location close to the national park. Kevin made us feel very welcomed. Plus the pool is very pleasant.
Cons: Difficult to get to. Asked to keep our passports during the stay.
