I'm quite disappointed with this hotel, wouldn't recommend it. Receptionists are rude and do not know anything that can help tourists, not to mention they cannot communicate in English in an international hotel (they may reply in English to basic questions but the majority of the staff isn't fluent in English and attempted sign language with me). We asked for... More

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.

We enjoyed a weekend work retreat at the hotel and found the room to be ok. It was clean, but the toilet didn't flush and required me to fix it even after calling and asking the maintenance man to repair while we were out of the room for the day.
