Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ok - so Quan Lan Island is definitely off the beaten Halong Bay Track, with a fast ferry (about 2 hours) through the spectacular seascape to take in. It was quite surreal and misty for our visit earlier this month, giving the islands a mysterious look.
The island is predominately a local escape, so there aren't too many activities to tick off, and you won't feel hassled. Depending on how energetic you're feeling hire a bike, or for a cruisy way to see the island zip around an a moto. We did both, the southern part of the island definitely easier to explore on moto, but not so many beaches that way.
The beaches are beautiful, but to distract you from the natural beauty of the place you'll find that there is an incredible amount of sand mining and road construction happening - so watch the trucks on the main roads.
The hotel was clean and tidy, however, the rooms were not serviced daily (rubbish bins weren't emptied), but otherwise its pretty new and well maintained. The hotel is quiet apart from when the karaoke starts up at night, or when the generator starts again around 8 ish.

Power goes off around 10-10.30 so that soon puts a stop to the karaoke, but if you're still wanting to read, make sure you bring a torch!!
We hired a karaoke room to join in the noise - $10/hour - and a fun mix of tunes in English!
The hotel owners assisted us in booking a taxi from the Halong Port back to Hanoi, and were helpful in checking the details and time that the taxi would meet us.

Let's state the obvious first, Quan Lan island is not yet much of a tourist spot - thank goodness! We were travelling with my family and a friends family - all up 4 adults and 4 children (3 yr up to 12yo). The Ann Hotel is big and we went with them due their ability to accommodate us both in 2 large double rooms (2 double beds in each) as well as their customer service in making all the arrangements and helping answer our inquiries months in advance of our travels.

The hotel and customer service is not what you are probably used to, but they are trying and we could not fault them. It would be great to support them and see the hotel (big by island standards) to be prosperous as Quan Lan was a nice unspoilt diversion on our holidays.

Biggest tip I can give - catch the local ferry / slow boat from Cai Rong to Quan Lan. The scenery is beautiful and the kids loved the local flavour travelling this way allowed. We opted to bypass Halong and the junk boat options and glad we did from the many stories we read. This was a cheap way to travel but through magnificent scenery. The only other boats we saw were local working fishing boats.

Duy Dong at the Ann Hotel will help you organise a wonderful stay if you decide to get off the beaten track.

We visited in December which is the off season for tourism to the island. Most of the places to eat etc were closed and the open ones were not great for us. The hotel itself is relatively clean. Not very helpful or interested staff though and I caught 2 cockroaches in the room.

It's very much a building site outside, this place will look very different in a few years I have no doubt. The island has some beautiful beaches and we were the only people on them which was great for a day but after one day we would have loved one place to get a drink or some food. There are some wooden structures on the northern beach "Minh Chau" but they were abandoned for the winter. Rented a motorbike from a nearby hotel for 120,000 dong, good road on the island with barely any people on it so it was easy and fun to explore. Really glad we went there but just slightly too late. I'm sure in 20 years it will be a different story....

I stayed at Ann Hotel on Quan Lan island in March 2013.It is a family hotel located at the beginning on the only paved street, the main street on the island, some 40 minutes walk from the boat docks (3 km) and just a few minutes by tuk-tuk.

Just a few minutes after I checked in, a group of Vietnamese came in and were offered cold drinks (nothing like that for me, a tired, middle-aged Caucasian woman, not even the staff offering to carry my bag up to the 3rd floor for a tip, of course. I was completely ignored).

The hotel is newer than the rest, and I had room 302 facing west, towards the marsh. Unfortunately, that also meant that when I entered the room it felt like a sauna with the sun blasting full force through the windows.

There is some construction going on at that location, which accounts for the noise and dust, so I couldn't even open the window. as the hotel owner told me, there was no electricity, so I went to sleep in a furnace, or rather a sauna, since it was hot AND humid.

Eventually the electricity came back on during the night, but the A/C still didn't wok (there was no remote for it, and I couldn't find a button to turn it on).

I called reception to ask for a wake up call, but couldn't make myself understood in any of the five foreign languages that I speak (English is not my mother tongue, but I find most people other than in Vietnam speak some English). The only person who could speak a few English words was often too busy or not there. The rest of his family, wife and another man relative included, tried to help but couldn't.

At 5:00PM I asked if I could order something at the restaurant of the hotel, but was led to understand that it was too early for dinner. Next morning same I asked for breakfast, but was told (in sign language) that it was too early. So I never got to eat anything there, good thing I carried a bag of pretzels in my luggage.

Needless to say, I would never stay at Ann Hotel even if the room were free. Actually I would never go to Quan Lan island again, even if I was paid to do it. People were unfriendly, I had children throwing rocks at me while I was casually walking on the main street, stray dogs surrounding me and acting menacing. A very inhospitable place. There are way better beaches elsewhere in the world (Thailand, Indonesia, just to name a couple in SE Asia).

Would recommended to anyone who is in Halong bay to visit Quan Lan island. Its a real taste of proper vietnamese life without the hassel of the more touristy spots.

The beaches are unbelievable and we found ourselves to be the only ones on them!

You can bicycle up and down the island easily bit would recommend staying in the town.

We stayed in Ann hotel which was gorgeous, got our own balcony with a great view. Definitely one of our favourite destinations on the trip!

I stayed here for three nights. This is a nice place to relax and do nothing.
Room is quite big and clean. I love the sea-facing balcony. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The foods in hotel restaurant are also cheap and delicious.
However, the only downside is the hot water system, especially it was winter time during my visit. The water was not hot.

Located in the centre of the small town. This hotel is run by it's very relaxed and helpful owner. He is happy to organise food, motorcycle rental or a tuktuk taxi to the port. The building looks well cared for and is clean. I had a room at the back overlooking the mangroves and the sea. This is the quitest side of the hotel. It appears to be one of the best properties the island.

The island is only 16km from end to end so can be explored in a day if you have a bike. There are a selection of lovely long sandy beaches to visit. An abandoned resort near the port is an interesting but strange place to visit. Lovely gardens but the artificial lakes are all damaged and empty and all the chalets either abandoned or destroyed! Elsewhere there are some hidden coves with fishing boats moored up. All very lovely.

Short Summary:
This hotel is family owned and the staff is really friendly. The owner speaks good english and is very helpfull. Beds are reasonably soft and rooms are provided with an A/C. We paid 300.000 dong for a double room and stayed 2 nights.

Hotel:
Rooms are clean and the shower is on top of the toilet (As in many hotels). The food of the hotel is really tastefull and for reasonable prices.

Service:
Excellent service. We asked for three motorbikes (120.000 Dong per motorbike) and 5 minutes later it was arranged. The motorbikes are a perfect way to explore the Island. Ask the manager for a map.

Overall:

Nice, clean and basic hotel. Perfect for exploring the non-touristy island.

We (family of 6) did not stay in the Hotel itself because the hotel was full (many Vietnamese families go there in the weekend in July - can be noisy), but in a guesthouse close by. That gave is two rooms and a living room on the first floor of a house close by. We also rented 3 scooters and had a great time. The manager of the Ann Hotel was great - he helped us with the guest house and the scooters (one of few people on the island who speak English). I highly recommend that people to call him through the hotel number and to use the hotel or the guest house. The Ann hotel has a good restaurant. And a great Western breakfast with pancakes and omelets.
