Have been staying here couple of days. Overall resort experience just average. Room is clean, bed is comfortable but the service is very poor. There were quite a number of facilities but no activities. The beach bar for BQQ and hotpot buffet dinner just so-so. Did not live up to 5 star ambience. Price per person at 328-68++. Not value...

My girlfriend and I stayed in Sanya for a week. We split our time between the Renaissance at HaiTangWan and Mangrove at Yalong Bay. My opinion of this hotel might be different if we had stayed here first but after staying at the Renaissance (which was cheaper) this place is a joke. The room is small and feels cramped. Doesn't...

Excellent hotel, rooms, food top class, just a lack of English speakers outside of the front desk, but all in all they were very helpful Better rooms cost significantly more, but the hill side views were very good anyway Loved the outside shower on the balcony (enclosed of course) as well as one in the bathroom, great for when you...

Depends on what you expect and want. If you want a place that is geared to Western tourists and has US standards, then this is not it. The hotel caters almost exclusively to Chinese internal tourists, and so the food etc is focussed on their expectations. The wifi is quite good and fast and the TV has English channels. There...

My husband and I are living in China and we have travelled in Thailand and Malaysia best beaches so when I booked that resort, we had low expectations before going to Hainan. We booked the garden-view as we were outside the entire day anyway. PROS: Balinese style resort which makes it much more exotic and pleasant than those high –class... More

Even though they call themselves 5 star hotel, it is nothing like it. The price was ridiculous (300 US dollars/room), but it was high season when I went so I kind of have not much of problem. But everything of this hotel is a disappointment. The pool was SO dirty, filled with sand and leaves. No body cleaned it. There... More

We had an amazing time at the Mangrove Tree Resort in Dec 2011. It was our second stay there, the previous one was in Dec 2010. We hugely enjoyed both trips. The breakfast buffet is very good, as are the hammocks in the garden, the heated pool in the evening, the water slide, and, of course, the beach itself! Just... More

Following a visit to Beijing (see review), my boyfriend, Dave, and I, Natasha decided to visit the island of Hainan in the South China Sea for 7 nights in July. Based on the recommendations of our local travel agent, Jenny at FreeSanya.com we chose the Mangrove Tree Resort at Yalong Bay near Sanya. This was marketed as a luxury, international,... More

Stayed for 5 nights in double room, 3rd floor, lake view (never discovered any lake) with 2 adults and 2 children (8+6), which was ok but room was small in comparison to the USD 20 guesthouse rooms we had before. 5* Does not mean softer beds! The shower on the balcony was just fun. The swimmingpool is shallow (1.2 mtr),... More

Had dinner in the Thai restaurant on the 1st of March with 5 friends. During dinner the gardeners were spraying insecticde on the plants around the restaurant. Both the smell and the potential for spray drift going on the food was horrible. the insecticide being used was Lorsban.
