I have been working in Hainan from Sep 2006 - June 2008, and treated myself and my GF to two weekends away here.
Price wise, I would suggest NOT booking this hotel from your own country. One of my weekend trips here was during a Chinese National Holiday, yet we still only paid 666RMB, for an upgraded sea view room, two free spa treatments, two buffet breakfasts, and a BBQ all you can eat and drink. (cost is for one night - two people)
I also cant believe the spa is the biggest in China, let alone the world as claimed. The indoor spa itself only has a few pools, and none with coconut milk and so on as you may find in other resorts in Hainan.
The hotel itself is nice enough, and the food was good. A close inspection of the hotel and you will notice peeling paints etc.
Also, each time I have been here...the KTV rooms, bar, and swim up bar was closed, and the pool looks like it should be cleaned a little more often.
Its location is fairly remote...if you come here for a week, there really isnt anything to walk to from here...no shops, no other entertainment...but they do run a courtesy bus to Haikou.
For me, a resident for some time on the Island...its a nice place to visit for a night or two...but any discerning travellers fro EU or USA would be very upset to have paid a lot of money and travelled here I think...there just isnt enough to do, and its very average compared to the beauty of the Med for example.
And the spa massage treatments are wildly over-priced I think...A decent foot massage for an hour in Haikou would be around 30RMB...its 300 at the hotel!
If you live/work in Hainan...yeah go there...but dont travel 6000 miles to this place for your once in a lifetime holiday...
