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

Thank you for your generous full score! I’m very glad that our hotel is always your first choice while you are in Dongguan City. As you mentioned the negative exposure about Dongguan, we are also studying the long term effects. However, the bright side of the story is that many travellers would still opt for our hotel not just because... More

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

On the recommendation of a colleague, I stayed here on my last visit to Dongguan and again on this visit. The hotel is consistent and I'm adding it to my rotation. The rooms are clean and spacious with comfortable beds. The staff are always very friendly and always greet me when I pass by. I've only eaten at the Japanese... More

Thank your for the full marks on "Room" and "Service". Together with Sofitel Golf Resort, both properties would add up to 7 restaurants and 4 bars & lounges. Shuttle service is available between resorts. Give other outlets a try in your next visit too. I'd recommend visiting our peacocks in garden roaming freely at Sofitel Royal Lagoon. We do not... More

This hotel is top notch. Our room was gigantic and completely luxurious, overlooking the gorgeous outdoor pool. The staff are insanely helpful and the hotel has tons of amenities (indoor/outdoor pool, games rooms, restaurants, lobby pianist, lake, work out room, etc.) The breakfast was impressive, although due to a lack of guests, lots of the food was cold. My one... More

I love this hotel. It is a really nice place to stay on business. the rooms are nice and colonial and the views are stunning. the breakfast is great. The only downside is the hotel is low-rise so everything is a little bit of a walk. The views are spectacular and the staff are very helpful.

Thank you for a great review and great score. Indeed, Sofitel Dongguan Royal Lagoon is the Jewel of Dongguan. But I like the word "Oasis" you put it too! Indeed, we're surrounded by greenery, lake, garden, and even friendly peacocks roaming freely around the resort. If you didn't see them this time, ask for them in your next visit. If... More

A good, modern and fresh hotel. I spent three nights here in December but didn't see a great deal of the hotel itself as we were out most the time. The room (ours was a suite) was lovely, big and with a great view of the pool, a bathroom and a guest toilet and a big - but unusually hard... More
