That’s a new hotel in Sanya. Top floors are under construction still. Some capacities like swimming pool are not in full operation and usage. But, all of constructions are in top-modern design and brand new. So, that is very good to live and get a relax in brand-new apartments. Front view to SouthChinaSea. Good coking, friendly staff. There is no... More

Right on the beach, really relaxing to navigate from poolside to the private beach, but be adjacent to the famous pier and diving that departs from Yalong Bay. The lobby restaurant has great views and very comfortable couches on which to lounge, indulge in some great kabobs, sip on fresh orange juice, or assorted tropical drinks. The hotel is dated,...

We stayed at this hotel last June when my wife (Chinese) was unable to get a visa for a trip we had booked to the Philippines. Sadly, Sanya - for all the hype - is not the Philippines. The hotel was ok, but a bit dated and rather a long way from most of the other hotels and restaurants in... More

We are priority club members and after a bit of a stressful start we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the resort. We had requested an ocean front King room but at check in (late at night) we were given a room on the club floor that overlooked the front of the hotel and a bus/car park. The room was not... More

This hotel is by no means a 5 or even a 4 star property. I'm starting to learn with all my travels in China that they have a much different grading scale of what 5 Star should consist of. The breakfast buffet was not too bad and I would rate it as average for China standards. Very old and outdated... More

Thanks for your comments! Our hotel opened in 2001, facilities are getting old. We buy new facilities according to our schedule, such as we replaced all TV by LCDTV, all carpet one in 2009, all bedding in 2010. As for the mold top floor, I am not sure where did you mean to. The ceiling of hallway is fine decorated.... More

This would be a 5 star hotel for China standards, which, would equal a 3 star hotel in the United States. I've traveled in China long enough to know to have low expectations when it comes to customer service and facilities for hotels. I can say that my low expectations were met at Holiday Inn Yalong Resort. I will start... More

Yalong Bay has excellent white sand beaches and crystal clear tropical water that is great for swimming/snorkeling/diving (8 m visibility when we stayed). Most of the beach is sectioned off for private resorts and the one public beach is a mad-house. Would strongly advise to stay at one of the hotels on Yalong Bay (Holiday Inn was great). Understand there... More

This is a great hotel/resort on a wonderful stretch of beach in Yalong Bay. We had a few hiccups at check-in regarding our room rate but these were quickly resolved. Hotel staff are very helpful, the rooms are well-appointed and clean (recommend a sea-view room) and there is enough variety with the dining options. The beach and ocean were perfect... More

We were looking for a beach destination near Hong Kong to relax for a few days and Hainan island seemed a good option for somewhere completely different. Got a package deal with Dragonair and stayed for 4 nights. Positives: location right on beach, clean clear water, and nice views with mountains in background.
