This was our first time in MGM Grand. We stayed here two nights, as the price was somewhat ok. I have been in Sanya almost every year since 2004. Check-in: Oh mine, truly slow and sorry to say hotel personnel appeared not to be on top of their job. Over 20 guests were waiting for quite some time. I did... More

Huge hotel in fantastic location. Rooms are enormous and the room price is very good. Room service is expensive but overall a brilliant experience. Great place to eat a few minutes away to the left of main exit. Oh and despite the name there is no Casino.

Upon arrival in Sanya I ran into this hotel by chance; at the lobby I saw a discounted room rate for guests down by 20%. The hotel offers good facilities and faces the sea ( Yalong Bay) where not many tourists frequent. It is good to be away from the maddening crowd ( if you come in August or September)... More

MGM Grand Sanya is good for Mandarin Speakers but not good for English Speakers. There are a few staff who are able to speak in English. The room condition was not bad and slides' floors of kids swimming pools are not good enough for kids to go down the slide. Breakfast buffet was very good with nice ambiance. Should bring... More

My family and I really enjoyed our short break at this hotel. Starting with the staff they were excellent at all times. We chose the Golf view room, which was wonderful, spacious and modern, the room was cleaned thoroughly everday and fresh fruit also replenished daily. The breakfast buffet was extensive and the food wonderful, most days we skipped lunch... More

Stayed there for vacation and enjoyed very day. New build hotel has everything for your pleasure. Beach is simply perfect! A bitter thing is a room service and restaurant prices, cold be less. In a final bill we had almost a half as a cafe`s and restaurants. Rooms are large and fresh,
