“Great ocean view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

We booked a superior ocean view room in the main building on the 4th floor. I loved the early morning views of the sunrise from the balcony. Our room was in the older section - the doors were worn and our closet door was broken, but the beds were comfortable and clean. We felt very safe there. Good service - the shower drain didn't work and we had trouble hooking up to the net the first day, but we called reception and they sent someone up immediately to fix both problems. Close enough to walk to the beach, or you can catch a ride in a golf cart every half hour. There was a lot of noise all day as there were two construction sites between our hotel and the beach, but at night the room was was quiet. The infinity pool was beautiful - it was a short walk across the road and up the hill to the newer section. Breakfast in the new section is definitely better than in the main building, but it costs a bit more.

Room Tip: Great views from the superior ocean view room.

We found this hotel in Agoda and when i was trying to book the room I found out they have two different buildings which one is older and one is newer. Make sure you book the right one with the infinity pool and located on the uphill right across from the older building. I believe the name of the new one is something called Royal Garden Grand Resort (三亚半山锦江海景度假酒店(贵宾楼)).

This hotel located really close to downtown Sanya and Luhuitou Park. We rent a car ourselves and it is not that hard to figure out where you need to go.

We booked the room with garden and ocean views as well as free breakfasts for two. The hotel overall is nice (the new one) and the staff are all quite friendly :) Nice room and love the pool there!!!

Room Tip: Make sure you book the right one : 三亚半山锦江海景度假酒店(贵宾楼)in Chinese.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

there are 3 buildings of the hotel and you need to make sure which one you are going to stay since their room rates vary vastly. the best one is on the moutain which has an infinity pool but all hotel guests can use it. the hotel can even use a golf cart to send you up the moutain for the gym and pool and even the beach down below the hotel. on foot and it took you roughly 10 mins to reach dadonghai. we just booked a seaview room at the old building. not much expecation at all as we only paid a fair price. the balcony of the room which offers a view over the sea is definitely a bous. as for the breakfast though served in a buffet stytle, not much to choose indeed but still ok given the room rate we paid. one more point, the lighting of the bath room is rather dim.
the hotel is close to the town area and only around 10 cyn by taxi can get you to the town.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2011

We stayed in the 3 star section of this hotel, despite being told it was a 4 star hotel when booking it. The reason why we will not return to this hotel again is the poor service - the staff appear disinterested and lazy, and at times were downright rude. Never recieved a smile from the staff for the 4 days we were there.We were happy with the location, an easy walk to Dadonghai beach. The room was clean and spacious with a wonderful view of the sea. The bathroom needs updating - the shower curtain is very old and discoloured. The beds are rock-hard, and there were noisy hotel patrons drinking and shouting till 4.30am in their rooms.The internet costs 30 yuan per day and is of reasonable speed. Overall we will not return to this hotel and would not recommend our friends stay there.

This hotel is centrally located. The cost of a taxi from the airport should be no more than 100 RMB (approx £10). There are two sites to this property, the main site - standard accommodation and the VIP site which has the infinity pool, gym and all day dining restaurant. We stayed in the standard accommodation which was clean and had all basic facilities including complimentary umbrella and map for use whilst in resort, slippers, dressing gown. Each day the room is cleaned and replenished with clean towels, and toiletries. A deposit is required upon check in to cover any incidentals - do not take the paper map when you leave otherwise you will have to pay for it!! English is spoken by one or two members of staff only. Try to get a package that includes breakfast otherwise the cost is approx £7 per day per person, quite extortionate considering the selection available. There is a choice of Chinese or continental breakfast. A good service is provided by the complimentary electric buggy that takes you down to the beach, this runs most of the day at 20 minute intervals. Despite the limited information regarding fitness facilities, it does have a gym but no free weights. This property is NOT located on the beach. Most of the local restaurants have the menu written in Chinese or Russian, and the prices are not cheap compared to the rest of the country. This island is a tourist destination with little or no cultural sites to see.
