We were headed to Hong Kong from Shanghai and our plane was diverted to Sanya. After FIVE HOURS sitting on the plane on the tarmac, they finally let us out at 1:30 in the morning--only to take me and my two young sons to some kind of hellhole hotel that smelled, had no a/c, and WHERE THEY EXPECTED US TO...

This was our 5th visit to the MO Sanya... Yes, we really like it that much! This time, it was a full family vacation with my husband, my parents and my toddler son all together.

2nd time staying at MO Sanya in one of the Sea View Villas. Villa layout excellent and big villa pool. Resort pools excellent for kids. Food, both Western & Chinese was to a high standard. Airport transfer painless and overall service levels very high compared to average in China/ Asia. We will stay again.

After a week full of sightseing and impressions in Beijing, we looked forward to a week in beautiful surroundings at this resort.

We didn't stay here but bought a day pass. This place is amazing, it's on the ocean but there really isn't any swimming because of the coral, though they did say you could go snorkelling. There are endless pools surrounded by sand and palmtrees and beach chairs, there is a swim up bar, a water slide and water basket ball.... More
