Moondance is a wonderful oasis outside of the bustling hubbub of Yangshuo. Each room is arranged differently, but all are comfortable, cozy, and have all the necessary facilities. There is a nice collection of DVDs to watch, as well as a library of books to peruse. I visited the Moondance with 11 of my family members at the end of... More

We had a very nice stay at the Moondance resort. If you're looking for a nicely situated accommodation with a pool and a very helpful and friendly staff, this is the place to be! The rooms are clean and the surroundings quiet. The city of Yangshuo is however only 7 minutes by car, if it's noise you're looking for ;-)... More

This hotel was amazing. The staff is fantastic and help you arrange any transportation or sight seeing you'd like. The rooms have a rustic charm but with first class western comforts. Great bathtub with nice views. The heathy breakfast was delicious. The hotel is a little out of town so you have to wait 15-20 minutes for a taxi but... More

Yangshou is very touristic. The center of the town very busy and not so pleasant. We were very luck to pick this lovely place outside of town. The word "resort" may be misleading. The term "boutique" is more accurate. Everything about this place is "charming". The rooms are lovely and clean. The yard is big with lots of space for... More

We stayed at Moondance for 3 nights during a Spring Break trip to Guilin and Yangshuo, and we really enjoyed ourselves there. I'm giving the resort 5 stars for the comfortability of the place, and for how the hotel just fits in to the environment so perfectly; giving (Western) guests what they need in terms of Western amenities but still...

We enjoyed a nice coffee break with yunnan coffee and apple pie for the adults. The kids had fresh jucie and ice cream pancakes. We just passed by this place on a great day out on the bikes. The garden is very peaceful, next to the river. The kids found a lot of things to do.

My adult son and I stayed here for two nights in late January 2015. It was a very pleasant place. Close to Moon Hill, the old banyan tree and few of the caves it is a great base camp for the area. Rooms are nice, with modern amenities. Wifi is strong throughout just realize you have to choose a different... More
