Location and setting: right by the Jinbao River with a big front yard. We took quite some pictures just at the front yard or the river and it was so green that it didn't look real. We always had to cross the river when we went out and out of the 3 days we stayed there 2 days the river... More

We had a wonderful 4 day stay. Susan, who greets all guests, has excellent English skills and had many suggestions for excursions: rafting on the river, Impressions show, hiking through the small village in which Moondance resides and through small local farmland, into caves and over gorgeous bridges (with guide Amy who was SUPERB - local rice farmer turned guide),...

Very nice natural environment, the kindest people and tasty food. Rooms are incredibly ample and nice. Bikes for free. They are in the making of a swimming pool that will give the place a perfect excuse to stay in the hotel. Magic place

Moondance resort is an excellent and quiet retreat. The hotel is very attractive, in a beautiful riverside location, very comfortable, nicely furnished & spacious rooms with private balconies. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our stay at Moondance was a welcome relief from the noise and crowds of Guilin and Yangshuo. We relaxed, had drinks on the riverfront deck,... More

Pros: : Hotel is really beautiful, in a gorgeous setting, off the beaten track. Walks in the surrounding countryside are easy on the village road and paved walking paths between villages. Room was splendid and large. Had front facing view and wonderful to watch the ladies doing laundry in the river and the occasional water buffalo. Room was very clean... More

The Moondance Resort is about eight kilometers outside Yangshuo. It is on the Jinbao River and the Karst mountains are a beautiful backdrop to the setting. It is just across the river on a single lane track over a dam. The hotel is very picturesque and our room is huge. The bathroom has a humongous free standing tub and a... More

I came with 3 elderly folks (88, 82 and 66 years old), 2 children (3 years and 2.5 years old) and 5 able adults. This accommodation suited everyone! The elderly folks could take the ground floor rooms and we could take rooms upstairs. The views are simply gorgeous. The best view is truly Starry Night room. Yangshuo is cold during... More

We were 2 couples staying in Yangshuo for 4 nights in late December 2013. LOCATION: Idyllic and peaceful retreat environment --about a 10 minute drive from "downtown" Yangshuo-- perfect for exploring the Yangshuo area. As you turn off the highway onto a county road, the Moondance resort emerges around the bend, just across a small bridge over the Jinbao river.... More

Customer Service: My interactions began with Roland, one of the General Manager’s/owners who responded to all of my e-mails within 12 hours, during the planning stage of our trip. He was succinct, and to the point on all of my inquiries. Upon our arrival we met Sam and the other staff, who bent over backwards to accommodate us, and make... More

We stayed for two nights in the Starry Night suite, which was very tastefully furnished and arranged. The views from the room and balcony were incredible. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Wish we could have stayed longer.
