“Nice Hotel with great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

Currently, still staying with this Hotel. It's a bit far from the city area. Approx. 10minutes cab ride to downtown.

Great Ambience! The service staffs were very friendly and helpful despite doesn't speak
English that well. They told us the best place to visit and explain the facilities of the Hotel.

We were staying in deluxe river view. Comfortable soft bed and pillow and tastefully design bedroom. Definitely live up
To the price we paid for. Their staffs performance were better than Mangrove Tree Resort for sure.

There were 3 restaurants here including Ginza japanese and Chinese hainanese cuisine. Have quite good varieties. Easy to get taxi or the Concierge can help you to arrange Hotel car out for 25-40 CNY depending on the place you go and can charge to your room.

The fitness is located at 3 along with kids club and spa at level 2. This Hotel also offer 25% discount for all Hotel guests for Spa. Thumb up... Recommended new Hotel in Hai

Stayed in Mid May when weather is hot and humid yet there is basically no Air Conditioning at the Lobby and the corridor at the Club Floor we stay.
The Hotel is quite remote yet there is only one 10:30am shuttle to the city.
The staff are friendly and nice (probably the occupancy is low).
Unless the hotel improve the Air Conditioning and arrange more regular shuttle, we will not be there again.

As I said, the hotel is a little far from town. So it would be a little inconvenient to visit downtown. Anyway, they can help you to get a taxi and min. cost is about cny30. (by the way, from airport to the hotel, taxi fee is around CNY70-80.)
Well the room is spacious and beds are soft. You can have a villa or river or even sea view from your balcony which is not bad.
Apparently since they are newly opened, I assumed that they are lack of staff and some of staff needed to be trained as well. The staff of concierge and housekeeping department were very nice and helpful, however, the receptionest, were not so friendly. Whats's worse, it took them about 25 minutes to check us out and check some other people in. It seemed that everything was unorganised and nobody was helping. Many guests were complaining about it but no supervisor or manager was comforting.
About the breakfast, it tasted good with various choices. However, maybe it was because the cafeteria was on the first floor and close to its little garden, there were lots of mosquitos and flies which was very annoying. And the staff wouldn't collect your used bowls and plates in time.
If you are expecting a 5 star hotel like Sheraton, this hotel, definitely is not.

Officially opened on 1 Dec 2011
, this hotel is so new, none of the taxi drivers (we were in 3 cabs) knew where it was. It was a funny sight with our cabbies going around trying to find the hotel. We found it in the end though. It was tucked away on Xinbu Island, which we were told, is not very developed yet. We reckon that there would be grand plans for the place.

Anyway, the hotel was pretty empty when we got there. Lots of staff members were on duty. They were very friendly and eager. There were 8 of us in transit in Haikou for 1 night (in transit from Sanya to Haikou for our flight early the next morning.We booked 3 rooms, 1 twin and 2 triple. As the swimming pool was still under construction (not like it mattered because it was too cold to swim anyway!), the hotel was apolegetic and gave us 2 free breakfasts (for the triple rooms). 

The rooms were really great. Big beds, nice pillows, large lcd TV, beautiful bathroom. There's a large happy looking balcony too. Overlooking a potential river front in the future. It's still under construction! lol.There's free wifi or wired internet in room too.1 thing I realize about Hojo hotels (or perhaps hotels in China?), is that they like to have a blind with glass wall instead of a solid wall for the bathrooms. It's ok for couples I suppose but a little bit awkward if I were to share the room with a colleague. Although, at Hojo Newport, you can adjust the lighting for the bathroom so that view into the bathroom from outside is masked, so to have some privacy.But the switches are outside the bathroom. LOL. Just a little bit strange to me!

We had lunch at the hotel at Riveria restaurant, which was very nicely furnished. The whole place is just nice and new. 

The manager Ella was a super cute & enthusiastic. Such a friendly & helpful lady. So were the guys at the concierge. They offered lots of local information of the local areas downtown which we should check out during our very short stay and helped us booked our transport to the city centre.They also helped us arrange for transport from the hotel to the airport the next morning.

As the hotel is new, there were not many guests at the hotel yet. So for breakfast, there weren't any buffet breakfast but we ordered set breakfasts instead.There were choices of Chinese, American & Continental sets. 

This area in Haikou isn't exactly a tourist destination for me, but Hojo Newport gets my thumbs up for great rooms and great service! :)
