A couple of friends and I stayed here for a week and it was a great experience. Although the hotel rooms we stayed in were not the best (and lacked a window that separated the bathroom and the room itself), the facilities like the pool and the location was great. I spent pretty much all of my day either in... More

First of all I want to apologize form my bad English – it´s not my mother language but I hope you can follow. To the topic – the Howard Johnson in Sanya - I will start with the conclusion: AVOID IT! So why is that? To be fair, it´s not an “all bad” place. No, there are really some pros... More

When there with family of 6 people. The hotel room is nice and comfortable, the breakfast is good, international style, the Concierge was very polite and helpful and the out door pool is not bad also. The out-door playground for children is not bad to let the children to play. The only thing looks bad in the indoor pool looks... More

Went there with my family of 4 people. We booked a 2 bedroom suit, and it was great! Very comfortable, bright and spacious. Seafood buffet dinner at main restaurant was very nice, we ate there 3 evenings out of 4. Concierge was very polite and helpful. Only bad thing I have to mention about happened the first day we arrived.... More

This is a crap hotel. They may call it four and a half star as much as they want. On the first look it might look like a good hotel but they don´t meet up to any standards on being a five star hotel. It is run down. There are lots of pools and they are nice and was not... More

The Hotel is HUGE. But well taken care of. Most value for your Moolah. It has 5 pools, several hot spring pools and private beach area!! Food is great. A band plays every evening and they are good. Food is better than the rest of Sanya- quality and price wise. Staff is super efficient. Every one of them from the... More

The hotel is huge. It has a very large lobby. It has three swimming pools. The pool at the East Wing is especially designed for children. The centre pool is the largest and beautifully decorated with tropical trees lining up both sides. It has an indoor pool for hot spring at the West Wing, unfortunately we weren't able to use...

I went for the October holidays, I was very satisfied. The Hotel is nice, with good covered spaces, nice rooms, a wonderful swimming pool area and one unbelievable grass lawn. We were welcomed by a Nepalese guy very kind and speaking a good English. The rooms are comfortable and well maintained, with a small balcony and good view (better choose... More

Hotel has nice grounds and the lobby and bar area is very nice, very exotic. But: The rooms definitely need a makeover. And the most important information for all non-chinese travellers: Between the bathroom and the bed is no wall. Yes, no wall, no glas or anything else. Obviously the chinese and russian guests don’t mind, but we were a... More
