I stayed here twice, on business trips to China. This is a premium, luxury hotel, and the staff, service and general atmosphere reflect that well. I loved this hotel, and would gladly return on another trip to Dongguan.

The Tangla is the former Accor/Sofitel Royal Laggoons and this was my first stay since the change in ownership. There were no notable changes that I saw and I was satisfied with my stay. My room was the same, the hotel was clean and well maintained, and the buffet restaurant (where breakfast is provided) continued to be a wide and... More

I have stayed at this hotel off and on for 10 years and I have never seen such a steep decline in service as I have this last few weeks. Rare replenishment of toiletries, no expedited laundry service (unless left before 5 pm?? Who is at their hotel during the day???), terrible service at breakfast and rare clean tables, cold... More

The hotel is located next to a golf course, in a resort style environment. The room is huge with chinese style decoration and very spacious bathroom with bathtub. Lighitng in the bedroom is too dark for my liking, probably on average with most 5 stars hotel though. Their bedding is absolutely wonderful. Everything from the bed, pillow, comforter were just...

Dongguan is a very large sprawling city so hotel selection can be difficult if you are not sure of the location. The Sofitel Royal Lagoon is located near Qifeng with its lake and walking tracks in the centre of Dongguan. Easily accessible to the centre of Dongguan with its Bar Street and restaurants just 5 mins by taxi it is... More

I stayed at this hotel as I was here for a weekend and thought it had nice surroundings. It did and, on the whole, it was very nice place to stay. The room was good, facilities good and service was good. Only 4 stars as I felt that for the price (in China) certain things didn't quite reach my expectation.... More

Hi RWhite275, Thank you for sharing your comments here. Your comment on the cold food has been shared with our kitchen team. My apology for that. I must say that the outlets are more quite before the coming Chinese New Year holidays. And, I agree that the surrounding of the resort is beautiful. Ducks are added in the pond behind... More

This hotel was in a great location. Around the lagoon and away from it all and the pollution of the city. The Japanese restaurant was great, we had tepenyaki and it was delicious. Well worth it. The rooms and service were all good. Just a bit of a language barrier sometimes, but we were in China. The pool would have... More

Hi Kase87, Thank you for your comments and praises. Our outdoor swimming pool is indeed a major attraction in the summer with many kid's activities in the pool and off the pool. Great family fun. Come again when it's warmer and have fun with family too. Thank you. Best Regards, Henry Tay More

Hi Mike, Thank you for your compliment and positive recommendation to our hotel. Royal Lagoon is a good resort for business traveler as it's close to town, and great for family fun on weekend for the resort environment. Certainly, we're "5-Star." Activities available for winter and summer to keep children entertained. Thank you. Best Regards, Henry Tay More

If you want a good retreat from your daily busy life, it is definitely a good choice to stay here. Good accomodation with adequate facilities that sufficiently enlightens your stay without going out to the down town for more. Besides, courteous staff also make you feel at home.

First thing is to say the staff of the Hotel are fantastic, great service. The hotel is ok its just worn and tired and could do with a facelift. I used the hotel whilst visiting the canton fair, I would return if I was on my own but not with the family.
