The property, the rooms, the service, the facilities, the transport options everything about this resort is just top class.
The property is just beautiful and has enough to do within the premises with a walk around the lake just simple breath taking. The games rooms with foosball, pool table, spa, gym and swimming pool are awesome. The restaurant and bar serve delicious stuff and yet in 15 minutes you are in town to soak in the beauty of the place. Dalat is awesome and terracotta makes the stay eventful

The photos on Trip Advisor lead me to believe it was not a shared Villa, however this is NOT the case.
We arrived to a "Villa" with 4 other bedrooms. Drunk people who made noise until around 2.30am without any respect for others around them.
We discussed this with reception who "spoke to these people" offering absolutely no apology or compassion for our lack of sleep in a room we PAID for with our hard earned money on our HONEYMOON.
They moved us to yet another Villa against our wishes (we wanted a room with more privacy), stating there would only be one other occupant.
To which, again, disrespectful noise past 10.30pm. Which apparently stating on the hotel rooms booklet is a rule that if "broken" requires a payment consequence.
The hotel rooms may be lovely, the grounds are beautiful to look at and breakfast is ok, but I personally wouldn't recommend staying in a Villa if you want a good night's sleep.

Such a lovely villa on a beautiful property over looking the lake. Really enjoyed staying here, besides the extra costs for literally everything you didn't already have (cutlery etc). We didn't find any staff that could speak English, besides Quang. Quang was our driver and helped us with anything we needed, always with a contagious smile on his face. He is an exceptional staff member and was honestly the best part of my stay in Da Lat. Thankyou Quang

(1) Location :
About 35 mins by car from the airport. The resort charges 400,000 Dong per car for the airport transfer, for each trip. I booked the hotel car for my arrival - the driver was punctual and the ride was comfortable. On my return to the airport, I took a Mai Lin taxi (there’re always a few waiting outside the hotel) and the cost was only 250,000 Dong so I think you would be able to save some money taking a taxi for both ways.

I love the location of this resort! The resort is rather large and it is right beside the lake with lots of pine trees and beautiful flowers all around the main hotel buildings and expensive villas. There are pathways along the fringe of the lake with comfortable seats placed at various points for you to sit back, relax and just enjoy the wonderful scenery without being attacked by mosquitoes. Absolute bliss at whatever hour of the day!

(2) Room :
Spacious and well-kept. There are 2 buildings each (3 to 4 storeys), built on the left and right hand side of the reception building. Rooms face either the villas (built just beside the lake) or the open square (which is next to the restaurant). I personally prefer the villa-facing rooms (even number rooms) because the window view is more scenic (lots of pine trees and partial lake view seen from certain rooms on high floors). The odd number rooms are not as ideal because some face the restaurant which might be busy or there might be noisy events at the open square. If you can splurge, I think the villas would be ideal if you want the best view.

The Superior room which I stayed in offers excellent value for the price that I paid. All the usual amenities are provided : robes, slippers, umbrella, lots of towels, tea/coffee-making facilities, mini bar, bottled water, safe, large LED TV, toiletries, hairdryer etc. The bed is large and comfortable and the floor-to-ceiling window gives me a great view of the trees and flowers. I was not disturbed by any noise at all, even over the weekend. No air-conditioning in November but the temperature in the room was only about 18 to 25 degrees celsius so everything is perfect.

Service :
The service level is not amazing but good enough. Like in most other hotels, some staff are nicer and offer a more superior level of service than others.

The Spa is alright, the massage is not outstanding and the ambience is not fantastic but for the price I paid (360,000 Dong for a one-hour massage), I have no complaints. The bare indoor pool doesn’t look very inviting and probably needs to have its interior design enhanced to make it a more appealing place to hang around.

Breakfast can get chaotic during weekends when lots of domestic tourists stay over for family holidays. This is when you get to see just how many guests are staying at the resort with you. It gets so crowded that counters with an additional buffet-spread is set up outside the restaurant. Almost all tables and seats get taken up quickly during its busiest hours from 7.30 to 9 am. The food choice is adequate (a good mix of Western and Asian selections) and quality is fairly good overall.
I think Tuesdays to Thursdays are the quietest days.

There aren’t any restaurants within walking distance from the resort. There are some small shacks selling coffee and other beverages about 3 km away. The free hotel shuttle bus leaves at 9.30 am, 2.30 pm and 7.30 pm (drop-off/pick-up is at a bus-stop near Dalat Market) and returns at 11.30 am, 4.30 pm and 9.30 pm.

To conclude, I enjoyed my stay and think that this is definitely a good choice if you don’t intend to spend too much to enjoy nature at its finest!

I stayed here one week ago with my family- we booked in a 3 bedroom villa which was right be the lake.
My first impression was that this place was stunning- and we were amazed that the resort had received any negative reviews. After the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh city, Terracotta resort in Da Lat couldn't be further from the pollution, noise and craziness of the city.
The grounds are tediously maintained and beautiful. You see something different everywhere you look, with little animal statues scattered in groups along the entirety of the grounds. In some areas you can even hear soothing piped music.
The villa itself was breathtaking, with fantastic views of the lake, well appointed king bed rooms and bathrooms which were spacious and inviting.
Well worth the money in respect to the quality of the rooms and the setting.
Buffet breakfasts were included and the selection was the largest I have ever seen. It truly was spectacular- with a massive dining room filled with different food stations- salads, hot Asian and European meals, a chef to prepare eggs, another to prepare pancakes, a desert station, as well as fresh breads and drinks.
Some of the foods were a little bland compared to what you would normally expect- but overall it was fantastic.
However- there were some massive downsides to the stay.
Although the resort boasts great services- none of them come without a price. You don't even get access to basic utensils, crockery or cutlery in the villas unless you pay extra.
There is a spa, sauna, pool, etc- but upon attempting to book in to use the services they were unavailable- particularly if you wanted to book in for a couple of people.
There are basketball and tennis courts, but you need to hire the equipment (something like 30,000 vnd/ hour) and the equipment is poorly maintained. Basketballs and bike tires were flat when they were hired out, but they don't have any pumps to re-inflate them, making it an unwise investment.
Although I would call this quite a Westernised resort in terms of services and set up (all written information is typed in both English and Vietnamese and nothing else), the staff have incredibly limited English skills- the exception being one of the drivers- Quang- who was excited to find out we had come from Australia and used every opportunity to practice his English skills on us- he really was a delight and the best thing about Terracotta resort. Some people make or break your stays- Quang definitely made our visit a happy one.

In short- positives=
* Great option of tours you can book through the resort and reasonably priced
* Beautiful, well appointed rooms
* Spectacular surroundings
* Fantastic breakfast buffet
* Quang

* You need to pay for literally anything extra
* Additional services are expensive and not maintained, if available at all
* Very limited English spoken by staff

Room Tip: Give a tip to Quang- whatever he earns it's less than he deserves ;)
