I booked a "180-degree seaview room" with balcony for only around Rmb339 (~30 Euro) per night (breakfast included) in July. The room price is definitely low in Sanya. The hotel is a small one, but still consists of a swimming pool, chinese restaurant (western restaurant is not open) and a bar. While the hotel is not well decorated and is... More

My sea-view room is located at 4th floor, absolutely 180 degree sea-sight, though the balcony is REALLY simple, but you can hear the sound of waves at night, and a little breeze from the sea, that's such a enjoyment, the bed is huge and well-located, take your girl and just HAVE FUN! BTW the sea-view room should be your only... More

We stayed at this hotel for one week in March 2013. We booked a seaview room with a nice view of both the ocean and the pool. The room was ok with a slow internet connection and standard Chinese bed (Rock Hard).The hotel is situated far away from any shops in a very quiet area, going to Sanya city center... More

We stayed at the Yelan Bay Resort for a few nights in July 2012. The hotel is located a short distance from Sanya Airport, which was convenient but aside from this reason, the location is actually quite ordinary. The hotel rooms were really small and overlooked the pool area. The bedding was hard, which standard and to be expected in... More

We booked a seaview room which was spacious and had a good view over the ocean. The room looked tired however and the bathroom was rather dirty with a sink was cracked fully across. Most disappointing were the surly sad staff who barely looked up when you talked to them and certainly couldnt be bothered to say hello. The breakfast... More

A really excellent location as so close to the beach and I was lucky enough to have a room overlooking the pool and sea which was great. The pool looks lovely and the rooms are spacious and generally clean. Very hard matresses (this seems to be something Chinese customers prefer). The hotel was geared up for the Russian market and...

Not a bad hotel but the whole place is tired and showing its age. The breakfast was pretty poor even by chinese standards, not even the coffee was good. Tried the bbq, brazilian bbq was not available and the regular one was pretty poor. Staff generally nice and helpful. Jet bikes available on beach and reasonably priced (150rmb for 10mins).... More

Loved the location. It was about a 15 yuan taxi ride (10 minutes) from downtown so we didn't have to deal with all the traffic and crowds. It was only 1 minute from a secluded beach so one could easily go for a dip or walk (again, without the crowds). Staff sucked. They will tell you not to take taxis... More

Location is perfect if you want peace and quiet and convenience as it is only 10 mins from the airport and 1 min from a beach. It was great to get away from all the people in other parts of China! Facilities and hotel were good. Swimming pool is very big and never packed, in fact during the day there... More
