Everything is pretty clean and big. Not satisfied with the assorment of food to chose during breakfast and night buffe, very few to chose from and the breakfast were pretty much the same all day during my 4 nights visit. Although this were the only downside with the resort, especially for that cheap price.

This place is catered for Chinese tourists, I'm not complaining, just stating a fact. The room was decent and clean, although the bath tub / shower leaked and caused the bath mat to soak upon use. I was probably the only guest not holding either a Chinese or Russian passport. Not in itself a bad thing, just expect the food... More

Lack of amenities: We arrived on a Friday evening at 9:45pm and were hungry after the travelling so we looked up the room service menu and called the provided number. They told us that they were closed, and when we mentioned that the information sheet says that they were open until 10pm, they just repeated 'closed' and offered no other... More

This is so far the best hotel for budget traveller. This hotel has decent rooms, nice pool, good food, and only like a few minutes walk to the beach. At night, they have entertainers that will sing while you have your BBQ. If you would like to reach the beach faster, they have free transportation. The only complain I have... More

Cactus resort I didn't expect good hotel when I selected this hotel. But hotel room, breakfast and facility were better than my expectation. And this would be the cheapest resort in Yalong bay. This hotel is very close from famous island and forest park. Staff with poor English skills and purely Chinese menu, but with clean rooms and good value... More

I really didn't expect much from this hotel/resort and I was happy to realize that it was actually very good! The rooms are clean and have comfortable beds, the staff can speak decent English (compared to the other hotels in Sanya), the resort is big, green and with a nice pool. The SPA is quite good as well. They have... More

We enjoyed a lovely 2-night stay on New Year day and the next day. Surprisingly it was not crowded. The bedroom was clean. We liked the huge bed they provided. We found the hotel staff to be very helpful, especially in helping us to negotiate a good price for taxi to go to various locations of interest. We did not... More

There are many reasons why this hotel is excellent and why me and my wife had such a great stay. The swimming pool is a massive highlight with its opening hours and cleanliness and bar. Next you have the golf cart to the beach which is great too. The location is also amazing, being tucked into a corner of Yalong... More
