Good to know: Black cab costs 25 RMB from Nanshao subway station (end of Changping line).
Great service: We had a Type C suite located on the crummy first floor in East Building, and called to transfer to the second floor-- No Problem.
Unexpected news: The door ticket to the Hot springs is a one-time entry only, valid for 24 hours, which kind of reduced the value of our expensive hotel room. Many groups and couples spend the night in the Lounge Room on big comfy, reclining sofas and wake up in the morning for some more pool-hopping. Better value, but I can imagine the pitfalls of communal sleeping. They don't advertise the 套餐 (package deal) which was 680 for the room (Queen size bed) and 988 for that plus two breakfast tickets and hot springs tickets (Hot spring tickets at time of writing are 268RMB each). Again, we were trying to get all the value out of the hot springs and so didn't even get back to our room till 3:30 in the morning.
Major note: We went on a Thursday and the kids aren't out of school yet, so we basically had the place all to ourselves. This is KEY and probably what made our experience so enjoyable.
24-hour access: For young adventurers I would highly recommend hitting the pools up at night. A crazy experience! They were draining the first floor pools, and closed the outdoor ones, but the second floor indoor pools remained open and were very creepy-cool being as we were the only ones left.
Minor glitch: On the way out, they tried to give us trouble with a "tea-stained" towel that was required us to pay 30 kuai in damages. Being as that claim is RIDICULOUS, I told the manager that we had had an wonderfully impressive experience that their 4-star establishment so far, and would hate to ruin our experience with this minor tit for tat about a stupid hand towel, and she gave us our deposit back immediately.
The first in a line of black cars outside the resort refused to take us back to the subway for less than 30. The man behind him in line obviously would have taken us were he not in line. Obstinate, after my check-out charade, I held out for about 5-10 more minutes for a passing black cab who happily took us for 25.
Considering the potential for big time mafan (hassle) with Chinese characteristics, we emerged from this experience relatively unscathed and very impressed by the quality and cleanliness of the pools, the quality of the service, the thrills of discovering secluded pool beyond secluded pool, and its overall rejuvenating effect.
A very enthusiastic recommend!!!
