This was the first time my better half had stopped here and she was overwhelmed with the luxurious feel and beautiful surroundings. A short stroll down the road, or better still hire a bike from the hotel and you can ride for miles around Donguan park and even feed the hundreds of Koi carp the length of your arm in... More

Royal has been my first home when I arrived to China, many years ago. I feel it very comfortable, clean and quiet. Staff was always kind and helpful. Years passing, I happened to stay there sometimes and it always kept the same quality standard as my first impression. The only negativd point is the, almost, impossibility to get a taxi.

Nice atmosphere and v good services. Plat. Member but as usual in china, doesn't offered a lot of privileges even top tier level. Good for relax or for a weekend. Another Sofitel beside this hotel actually similar but cheaper... Not sure why.

I’m pleased to learn about your positive experience with Sofitel Royal Lagoon Dongguan! Indeed, it’s a great getaway to relax after a week of hard work. I’m glad that you feel the same. The other Sofitel DG Golf Resort has only 133 well-appointed guestrooms. Some guests really love the guestrooms there, but Royal Lagoon has more facilities to offer as... More

The hotel is still of the same quality. However, the popularity is much less important since Dongguan has suffered from the last serious anti-vice operations by the police. It's bad news!!! Poor Dongguan

here for business and stayed for two day. The hotel was much better than expected. Staffs are warm and friendly. Swimming pool quite clean. And there are a few dozens peacocks around. Those pretty birds make the most annoying sound (very short and sharp) every ten or twenty minutes(not when we sleeping). But that‘s a highly unique and interesting annoyance... More
