“Good but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

The staff are all friendly here, and the rooms are comfortable and clean without being anything outstanding. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quite and I slept well.

The buffet breakfast is very expensive for China (147rmb), but they have a big range of food, both Chinese and western. I didn't try the dinner buffet, but I did have an ice cream which was also very expensive.

The hotel is not really close to anything of interest but there are a few retsaurants within walking distance. The gym is spacious and well equipped and the indoor pool is a bonus for the winter time. All the staff are friendly and quite a few speak English.

Stayed 3 nights in Meritus Mandarin.

There aren't many international standard hotels in Haikou and the other one Sheraton is very very far away.

This hotel is very popular with meetings, so it is usually heavily occupied.

The rooms are tired, but kept in okay condition.

The location is on the west side of the city, but a short cab ride from the Guomao area where the restaurants and nightlife is.

It is good enough for stay in Haikou due to lack of options. But not very memorable at all.

This hotel was not on the beach or near it. It is in the city. We stayed there for 1 night just to rest before going to Sanya. It turned out to be a very nice place with a great price. The service was good, too. People spoke English well. ATM and shopping was nearby.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2010

Stayed 2 nights in Meritus Mandarin Haikou in March 2010. Rooms are comfortable and big. It was well kept and clean. Standard of a 5-star hotel. The lift lobby on each floor smells really nice. The rooms provide complimentary keychains and environmentally friendly resuable shopping bag. Do take note that supermarket shopping in China do not provide free plastic/paper bags for your purchases. So do remember to bring your own shopping bag. Hotel is rather far from downtown shopping area (eg. Mingzhu shopping dept store). Taxi ride to downtown takes around 20 mins to 30 mins. I was told that there is another shopping area called Guomao about 1km away from the hotel, but I did not go there. Buffet breakfast at their restaurant (I think it is at the Chatterbox) costs RMB88++ per person. Our family of 7 opted to have our breakfast in the Chinese restaurant Pine Court instead. They serve dim-sum, trolley style. The waitress will push the trolleys around the restaurant, and you pick whatever you like. Dim-sum breakfast for 7 of us costs around RMB250 to RMB300. The quality of the food was rather good for such a price. We had dinner at Chatterbox on the first night and dinner at Pine Court on the second night. I find the quality of the dishes and food very good at Pine Court. My sons enjoyed the food very much. Dinner for 7 at Pine Court costs around RMB500. I would highly recommend Pine Court for their Chinese food. The indoor pool is rather small, and the length is probably around 15m . However the pool is heated, so it is good for night and early morning swims. We did not try the outdoor pool. The hotel gym has only 2 treadmills. The gym is not too bad though. We are from Singapore, so we were quite glad that the room TV has Channel News Asia. The rooms also provide free internet access. If you are in Haikou, this is a good hotel to stay.

The Meritus Mandarin is a good standard international hotel, with good clean rooms, efficient service and good standard amenities and our stay over three nights was enjoyable. We had booked the Mandarin Club rooms which supposedly was larger (not true!) , better deocrated and with better amenities. This is not quite true either. The Club Lounge did not offer any spreads for morning or afternoon snacks and cocktail food as advertised. Breakfast however, was quite decent at the Club level when we did not want to be with the large crowd in the Coffeee House. So all in all, we could have got better value with standard rooms (which were the same size).
One service snag, however, did occur. Ordering soft-boiled eggs was a real pain. On the first morning, the waitresses could not understand the order - we had to explain in broken Mandarin to the trainee cook to put the eggs into hot water, and it came back raw (he obviously didn't bother to time the eggs!). The second morning, we got fried two minute eggs (again, no-one in the whole hotel has heard of soft-boiled eggs!). And the third morning, the waitress at the club lounge finally cooked the perfect sof-boiled eggs! This is the first time in my experience that a hotel has not trained their staff how to take a soft-boiled eggs order! It is a laughable incident for us...but hopefully, not to the hotel!
