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

Stayed here with a group for a week on Hainan. Generally a very good hotel, quite nice decor and a giant area covered. It took quite a bit of navigation to find your way around. Lots of local Chinese guests and quite a few Russians which was quite interesting for this part of China. Did not have to deal much... More

Staff were literally shocking, none of them spoke English and Howard Johnson is a western chain so you'd think they'd at least have one or two people who had a basic understanding. The staff were just a bunch of kids really with no training, they were all rude and loud. The staff around the pool spent all day shouting at... More

I really enjoyed the stay, amazing room, swimming pools and beaches. We stayed in a two bedroom suite and there was more than enough space for 4 persons. We had a balcony with stunning beach view! Room, hotel: Room was spacious, clean except the tissue papers smelled mouldy. I guess not many people book the two bedroom suite so these... More

Very nice resort, nice pool, clean rooms, very spacious, however, I don't think this is a 5!!! star international standard. First point, we were not properly informed of the reasons why we had to pay a deposit which was far more than the total cost of the room. The staff at the reception, and everywhere else for that matter, spoke... More
