The best hotel in Sanya for Family vacation. We often go to Sanya and we usually stay in nice five star hotels with good service, but Ritz was way above others by every single aspect. If you have kids, and want to have amazing time, Ritz is a MUST DO! 1)      There are 5 pools, including heated pool, pool with sand (by the pool and actually In the kids pool itself. Which is perfect to play in for summer). On request they will give your kid plastic toys to play in the sand. There are many big floating toys to play around 2)      Apart of few pools for kids, there is a kiz zone pool with few slides. 3)      They have animal farm with rabbits, chicken, turkey, birds and pond with fish and turtles. 10:00 am is feeding time 4)      Kids club is big, many toys, schedule for hand crafts and it includes well-train staff to play with little ones. 5)      They put tent in the room and protection on the bed. 6)      We got gift set for baby dental care, shower gel and baby shampoo. With rubber duck, baby slippers and bathrobe. We forgotten sleeping toy, so we got Ritz bear. My toddler loved sleeping with him (I not sure if they do it for all rooms, or villas only) 7)      All restaurants have kids menu, kids plates. But this is more of the norm. Beach is nice, clean, and big area is not too deep. So its safe to play. 8)      Amazing service at every stage. We stayed a the villa with pool and had a personal butler to help us with our needs. Her name was Joanna, and she is incredible   THE rest is my personal advice on “to do” list with kids. Buttler helped us to book tickets: §  C show at Atlantis- great water-circus style show produced by Cirque du Solei. Great, Great quality and production. During busy season take VIP ticket, regular season I would recommend  general addition ticket. Evening show is at 20:00.   ·       In Atlantis is also decent aquarium (called lost chamber) ·       As for Atlantis aquapark (aquaventure) I was annoyed by long lines, not enough shadows and generally felt not very comfortable (lockers were small and relatively far Nanwang Monkey island ( 南湾猴岛) its far·       But we really enjoyed it A LOT!!!! Look it up. Can take stroller. There is a beautiful view cable road. Don’t go if weather is too hot, or take big bottle of water and pour over your cloth. Its silly but works well. §  Sanya romance park (with its Romantic  show)- not at good at C show, but still not bad, Go earlier there is a play zones for kids. §  Rice park with flowers and dinosaurs. Its ok,  but not extraordinary. was way to hot. We took a trip in the car, took some (ok, cool) pictures and run away. §  Yalong Bay Tropical Paradise Forest Park- nice. But can’t go with Stoller. Its big, so be prepared if taking kids.  They have birds and animals. Take bread to fead fish.

Come here for the pool, beach and breakfast only! forget about having a nice dinner here, F&B is a joke! All the restaurants here outside of the breakfast at Fresh 8 are playing hard to get, actually you don't have anything else within the hotel! The Sand restaurant and Chinese restaurant are by booking days ahead or they will tell you they are fully booked, even they are only about 30% full! you can take a look yourself if you have the time to wait! I guess they don't care about the business and saving those tables for the high rollers just in case. Walk over to Sheraton or Marriott for dinner without reservation, they are much friendlier and about 50% less than RC anyway! Tip: book this hotel using Ctrip (use the Chinese site), it's cheaper than the Bonvoy APP, they can careless if you are a member or not anyway... all they care is which room you booked!

Earlier I had stayed at the RC Sanya which was very disappointing. I wanted to give them another chance and this time they went over and above, well done! Some quick highlights: Upgrade to excellent lagoon room with direct access to the pool and view of the ocean Outstanding food and beverage in the club lounge throughout the stay Exceptional, and I mean EXCEPTIONAL staff. Full credit to Elaine who runs an efficient team in the Club Lounge. Elaine made the stay extra special and no request was too much. Thanks Elaine! Superb service from Koko whom lent me an oversize float for the swimming pool Yalong bay in my opinion is the best area in Sanya and the RC Sanya has a combination of location, service and resort feel. It ticks all the boxes Looking forward to my next stay very soon

One of the best family holidays we had! The room was connected to the pool so everything was so convenient. The staffs were professional which is hard to expect during COVID19. We were comparing vs Edition Hotel. Def classy, professional staffs, great food and kids friendly!

We spent five nights and everything is as expected. The room is huge and very comfortable, actually we got upgraded to an ocean view room which I would recommended. Every day we got a little gift from the room service that brings smile to our face. The staff at the reception is extremely helpful especially Mandy and also Aurudin at the breakfast. The hotel is kind of a kid friendly, and that I would not sure if it would be a place for a couple who like a bit more clam and quiet place. Foreigners might get frustrated sometime since not all the staff can speak English but don’t take it so seriously cause they will find someone who speaks English and can assist you. We only tried the sand restaurant and we think there is room for improvement. The octopus salad was lack of salad sauce. The Trio fish which is a recommended dish was just ok and the beef steak was not something wow and we got served when it’s not warm.
