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

Why is everyone saying this is a nice place? Everyone is smoking all over the place The rooms feels like a standard business hotel The service is awful no one has been trained to a 5 star level The place is packed because of the name MGM but to me it feels like a fake Chinese made product should call...

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,

The facilities were absolutely top-notch. The rooms are spatious and the food was really amazing. The beach at Yalong Bay was one of the best that I have ever visited. One huge minus: Wifi is not for free and the service level is not as high as what you would expect from a 5* facility!

My first impression of this hotel is not that mind blowing. Check in was slow, while others mainly locals trying to cut queue. The thing is they didn't try to stop this as well. The warm weather makes it even more annoying to wait. The allocated room is at area B, we got a little lost as no staff is... More

MGM Sanya is a grand hotel, its new, clean, stylish with good quality finish (even when you looked at that closely). Things remain to be expensive onsite (and near site) with sunscreen fetching more than RMB200 and imported icrecream a whoping RMB70! Do take advantage of hiring a car with driver, we paid RMB800 for a 8 hour hire and... More

Stayed at MGM with two families with small kids. This hotel has very impress garden and swimming pools, and private beach. The design overall is in high scale, of course everything are higher prices. Too many people are fighting for breakfast and not enough table and services. I can see many waste food on the table. I guess five star... More

This is an old review, but I think a good hotel deserves a good review (even if late). I said I stayed in April 2013, but it was actually October 2012. Sorry for the late review guys! There's not much to say. We had a great time. Went for the October holiday in China, and stayed for 4 nights. We... More
