I stay here one night before departure so that I don't have to wake up early to catch up flight. Sanya is a lot larger than expected. Always a minimum 40 minutes to one hour drive from any other resort to another area. This hotel is about 10 minutes from airport. There is no hassle of airport. This hotel is... More

The two girls at the front desk (they have no name tag) were very rude. Mainlanders typically don't smile much but they were just miserable. When I checked in they told me that "my reservation probably hadn't come in yet" before they actually checked! haha. I booked a large bed. They didn't have it. Okay.. I'll take two twin beds....

I'm quite disappointed with this hotel, wouldn't recommend it.

Stayed there for a 3 days retreat. Amazing pool, great beach, good beach bar, room clean and well equipped. Far from noisy Sanya, in the middle of a quite bay. I would strongly recommend to go there out of Chinese holidays toil you're looking for calm and quiet. Choose room with sea view, it is worth it.
