I was recommended to go to this place as a part of my hiking trip for that day and honestly this was a really nice experience! The location is absolutely stunning with the Jinbao river just passing by. The staff was just amazing, so friendly and I felt so welcomed by them all even if I didn't stay there overnight.... More

We stayed as a family (kids 6, 4 and 6 months) in late July. I was only looking to book a hotel with an outdoor swimming pool as it was so hot in the late summer. I booked after reading TripAdvisor reviews. The hotel exceeded my expectations. The pool was great! Such a great way to cool off in the... More

We stayed at Moondance from the 25th - 28th (3 nights, 4 days) and I can honestly say it was amazing and one of the nicest experiences ever. The hotel is in the country with STUNNING views of the mountains, villages and river; and is away from the craziness of the town (especially west street). It's only a 15 minute... More

THANKYOU Ryan and all the staff at Moondance for making our first trip to China a memorable experience. We booked here for 3 nights, and had no idea what to expect. The rooms are stunning and our bed was comfortable. I can't recommend this place highly enough. Moondance has the feeling that you are at home, it is so cozy... More

We did the touristy river cruise from Guelin to Yangshuo to get to this little gem of a hotel - it's a fifteen minute taxi ride from Yangshuo but it feels like a hundred miles from the tourist congestion of the town. The hotel has an abundance of charm with great views and a small restaurant that serves both Western... More

I would stay here again. Run by nice people with good english and if the staff couldnt understand you they would find someone who could. Bed was traditional hard chinese standard. Bathroom was a wet room which did have a moldy aroma and ceiling but did I mind - no. This is located in a humid wet area so it... More

Moondance is located at ideal spot, right by the Jinbao River and surrounding Karst Mountains. We stayed at “Starry Night” (each room has a name here :), on 3rd/top floor, I opened my eyes every morning and saw the Karst Mountains over the windows, I couldn’t believe that we stayed at such a beautiful place!! It’s a boutique hotel with... More

On our tour organized by Wild China, we stayed a couple of nights in a dutch-owned resort Moondance Hotel on the outskirts of Yangshuo. The city of Yangshuo is like Gatlinburg, TN - a tourist trap, noisy, crowded, not very pretty except for the natural mountainous surroundings. We were so pleased to arrive at our beautiful hotel (even though the... More

We wanted to stay somewhere a little different - we weren't disappointed. I had been concerned about some hotel reviews saying the beds were uncomfortable - this was not the case at this hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful. They arranged for us to hire an electric bike / scooter which was great fun. Breakfast was very pleasant.... More

We are checking out tomorrow and wanted to give our review right away. First of all, the staff, especially Ryan, are wonderful! We are on a trip with Wild China tours and they booked this for us. We have biked and hiked through the region and it has been very hot and humid. It is a treat to get back... More
