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

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 :)

On the website it says 4.5stars. I would give it 3 When we visited there were apparent works to the restaurants which were supposed be completed by 23/08. 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
