We had booked this 4-star hotel for two nights. First of all, there is nothing 4-star about this hotel at all. The receptionists don't speak a word English and the check-in procedures take long. The rooms are large but very poorly furnished, the sofas have foodstains from previous guests. The absolute worst are the bathrooms, you can smell the mouldy... More

South China Hotel is a very nice beach front hotel in Sanya. We stayed in one of the deluxe sea view rooms with balcony and had a really good stay. The room was comfortable. The pool area is nice and clean and the beach was also a nice experience. There was plenty of room both at the pool and the... More

This hotel has a decent pool with a semi functional slide, free fish massage but a great beach front. The waves here were great for body surfing, frolicking and generally having a good time in the sea. The beach was relatively clean with nice sand. There was a "comfort beach" located close by which you may (or may not) want... More

SCH is located just next to DA Dong Hai beach and close to restaurants and shops. Room's sound proofing is poor, you could hear people walking clearly at night. Breakfast is awful. You are expecting lots of Russians staying next to you during winter time. A 2 star standard hotel.

Stayed for three nights on a business trip. This is a comfortable enough hotel with pleasant rooms, set next to a beach and with a swimming pool in the grounds. Most of the clientele are Russian and most of the staff do not seem to be English-speaking, which some may find difficult. The breakfast buffet was very Chinese and not... More

From the moment we arrived at the hotel, we realised it was a bad choice. Really unfriendly check in: only Chinese speaking, which we can handle by leaving in China many years. They took ages to copy our passports, even with our residence permit. The room that we got was the worst one we could expect. Seaview through the trees,... More

From the moment we got to this hotel it was a struggle, the checkin was long and painful as very little english was spoken. When we got to our room which was supposed to be a Delux Sea View which we paid for we had a standard room over looking the bus carpark. We complained but with very little english... More

Came to Sanya for a week, and booked one night at this hotel (in order to explore apartment options for the following few days on the ground). Taxi (airport - hotel) is 40RMB; take your cab on the second floor (departures) or be ripped off at the arrivals. Check-in was dreadfully slow - must have taken more than an hour.... More
