Very nice and relaxing stay at Holiday Inn Resort Sanya Bay. We booked a swimming pool view room with double bed and got upgraded to a sea view as they didn't have a swimming view room with double bed any more. The resort was really empty when we stayed there, which was great as we got nearly the pool and... More

I would recommend this place as a nice relaxing place to stay in Sanya. The hotel is situated right on the Sanya Bay Coastline near the airport. We had a small issue with our room, the shower drain wouldn't drain, after we called the front desk, it seemed three staff were at our room not only fixing the problem, but... More

Far from everything, nice pool & beach, dining is ok, outdoor dinners were excellent! Friendly staff, they can speak some English & don't bother you! Request pool view rooms as mountain view faces the airport!

We booked the all inclusive package for 2 adults and 1 kid which offered good value. Fish spa and massage are included in the package which are good. The room is a bit aged but acceptable, with nice view from the balcony (facing the sea) - bt avoid the west wing which is behind the main building. The location is... More

I have stayed in this hotel several times. The hotel itself is probably 4 stars, but I give it 5 because of the location, good breakfast and nice pool. The only thing you beaware is not to take room with mountain view which in real life means view to the airport with airport noise. Always sea view.

Stayed here a night and loved my room. Got a twin bed mountain view room. As a gold member, I asked about an upgrade and the lady that checked me in smiled and said, "Upgrade to the sixth floor." So it was still a twin room with a mountain view but on the club floor which didn't have any special... More

I stayed here because it was close to the airport and I had an early flight. I was so pleasantly surprised that this was a great resort. Spacious well appointed rooms and terrific pool and grounds. I was by myself but great facilities for kids. The beach is close and the lobby area with bar is very nice.
