Your are surrounded by a golf course. Very nice neighborhood for jogging, walking and of course golfing! Swimming pool is awesome, gym is average but still ok. The breakfast buffet is healthy conscious, you can freely take fresh home made juice (it is not from seven eleven) The bad thing is the room smell is typical old carpet odors, and... More

By Far the best Hotel in the Zone, fantastic breakfast and really helpful staff. If you stay for business and had a stressful busy day, this is the place to relax and get energy for the next day. The Manager was personally around to help and make our stay comfortable.

This place certainly has the potential to be a lot more. It really needs a hotel manager who has worked somewhere other than a 3 star Chinese hotel! There are so many basics which could be improved at little to no cost. Get maintenance to clean the shower heads is just one such example. In the sauna, clean it!! Add... More

The hotel appearance, location, and amenities were great, but we found thick dust on hand rails and we were told that we were given non-smoking rooms and find some of our rooms has smoke odours and also an ashtray and matches were found in every room. We approached front desk to request for change to other rooms and was told... More

Hi DKReviews, Thank you for taking the time in sharing your experience with us here. My sincere apology for the mix-up of the non-smoking. New staff must have got confused with it. Only smoking rooms with ashtray and stuff. The peacocks are indeed beautiful and this is now their mating season. They're very much loved by most guests. The dusty... More

I have used the Sofitel Golf Hotel on many occasions for business over the past few years for myself and my customers. Located as the name suggests on the Golf course it's not the Sofitel Royal Lagoon. The hotel itself is nice with a good tropical atmosphere. The check in / out process is generally longer than needed and finding... More

Hi Stevelizhangjun, Thank you for staying with us and sharing your comments here. Sofitel Dongguan Golf Resort does offer a very special tropical resort feel. Tranquility is one of the key elements for this resort in addition to a round of gold game. Indeed, the Sofitel Royal Lagoon is just 7mins shuttle bus away and the service is free of... More

A great experience at a wonderful hotel! Transfer to canton fair and quiet room for a good rest! Room service is perfect and restaurant is amazing! Dongguan is a city close to Guangzhou and pretty fair prices.... The hotel has the best breakfast I ever had! The private taxis in the hotel has good prices!

Hi Leonardo, Thank you for the excellent remark. It's always nice to read about how guests enjoy the resort and what we have to offer. Thanks for reminding that if taxi becomes difficult to get at time, the hotel could also provide hotel vehicle for hire at a very reasonable rate to to town. Thanks again. Look forward to serving...

Very nice place. Could be more interested in the guest. Let the client know all about your facilities available to them. Showing them to the room doesn't cut it anymore. Ordered room service after arriving at hotel late in the evening. Dinner arrive very quickly, and was very very good. I found the lobby very warm and stuffy but it... More

The location as mentioned by many others is great, very close to downtown Dongguan and easily accessible to many manufacturing towns nearby. Henglizhen where I work is 25 minutes drive. The rooms although pretty large are somewhat dated and the walk to some rooms is more than 5 minutes, including a few detours getting lost with the signage! Take care... More
