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

Beautiful resort and value for $$$. The beach is away from the resort, as it is not at the beach front. Room is big and clean. The pools are big but they off the pool system maybe to save money therefore the water is very warm and "dead".

Good hotel. Buterfly museum is near. Good room service. We all really enjoyed the relaxing time we spent, specifically at the swimming pool. Guests and staff are very friendly. Back side of the hotel is a mountain, the other side the hotel gardens and swimming pool, behind that a big lake, and than some hotels and the beach to where... More

This is my second visit and as my title says it, almost perfect stay except for the female service staff at the front desk. Lack of proper training. No eye contact. As if she's speaking to someone over the phone while i'm standing right in front of her. Replied my enquire with questions and after 10 mins, i am not... More

Stayed here in 2010 and really enjoyed it - as we went during the low season we had the pool / beach almost for ourselves and can not judge how the hotel is once it is fully booked. However, we enjoyed the time here and especially the dinner - but please do not expect the staff to speak English :)

No works were apparent and we were still there on 30/08 but to no avail. All 3 restaurants were combined into one although we meet found the other 2 which were combined... More

I would like to divide in two parts: amenities and service. Amenities: in general acceptable, but with small effort can be much better. Rooms space acceptable, but no so clean. Morning breakfast mess room, completely dirt and it was a mess... Swimming pool, nice. Beach it was nice, but close (yes, close) at 19.00. Service: few people can speak English.... More
