Agree with others that this is a very nice hotel in secluded location as the seaside promenade ends there. It is easy enough and not far to get into Sanya centre. Swimming in the pool is OK but there is no access to the sea. There used to be stairs in the past put even then the beach is rather... More

It was a our wedding travel and I am very happy with the choise of this hotel. Unique place on the beach - a lot of territory, beautiful views not many people around, very polite staff. Had only one lack - troubles with English communication: no problem with reception staff and european-type restaurant, but we spent about 5 minutes to... More

Overall, the hotel all right, but I don't think that I'll stay here again. The staff is friendly, they do speak enough English to get what you need, the location is close to many places to eat, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and we have a great ocean view. That being said, I'm not sure how you can call... More

If you are an English speaker I would not advise you to stay at this hotel. The staff have about 5 words of English between them so it is quite ridiculous that this hotel advertises itself on english websites providing the impression that it facilitates the english speaaking public. The staff are also extremely inflexible and any task, regardless of... More

We stayed there during and after the Mid-autumn festival. Room prices doubled during this period! The first room we had (Villa Garden View Queen) was by far the smallest room I have ever seen in China (and I travel a lot!). Garden view is the view to the close by mountain. We changed to an Executive Suite (definitely overpriced) as... More

I visited the hotel for three days including New Years (at premium rate_) and found that this 5 star hotel in a resort area sadly, first, lacked any significant English speaking staff. When I went in to register, they accepted my China Merchants debit card for a deposit, and I did not know that this was a mistake by the... More
