We really enjoyed our stay at the Moondance. It's away from the city, tucked near some peaks and small river. Very serene, a pleasant change from all the other hotels we stayed at during our 2 week tour of China. Our room was a bit tight for 4 adults, it just didn't have much sitting room after all the luggage... More

This resort is in the country and is absolutely beautiful. The staff is very friendly, the rooms are great, and the views are incredible. It is a little far from town which added to the tranquility. 20 mins. We just took a taxi for 60 rmb. $9 each way. We have 4 young children and had plenty of room in... More

This was not what we were led to believe it would be. Here are some of our low-lights: - public trash dump directly outside the hotel. Sitting at the pool meant we could smell the trash - The staff - young and attached to their telephones (day and night) - The pool area greenery was lacking attention. It was just... More

The Moondance Resort is remote, some distance from the city of Yangshou, but is the perfect place to slow down and relax. After traveling and visiting historic tourist sites for a week and a half, we found it enjoyable and refreshing. The dam/roadway over the river had recently suffered from flooding, with six inches of water still flowing over it.... More

We stayed in Moondance Boutique resort when visiting Yangshuo. The room we got was very nice and the hotel was small enough to feel part of the scenery. We even took advantage of the swimming pool, loved the surroundings and biked (took bikes from the hotel) for a couple of hours. Breakfast was good (you can order a day in... More

We had three days at the Moondance during our tour of China. Wonderful setting by the river and surrounded by the iconic mountains of Yangshuo county. We had a great room. Staff were incredibly helpful and friendly, particularly Sarah who was a gem! Cold beers by the river watching water buffalo cool themselves was a great way to complete our... More

Horrifying and demoralizing. Wish we had NEVER stayed here and just stayed in Guilin. Location is seriously sketchy. The village garbarge dump is just outside the front of the hotel. This place does NOT warrant the title "resort" or "hotel" at best it is a glorified backpacker hostel. Staff are stressed out and abrupt. They don't mean to be but... More

This is in a great setting with large wrap-around balconies, spacious rooms and an intimate ambiance. We're told it was among the best hotels in the area. However, the room we stayed in (103) was very awkwardly designed, with high thresholds in every room, making it clumsy and easy to hurt yourself, especially going to the bathroom at night. The...

This hotel is lovely for anyone looking to get away from the hussle and bussle of the city. Situated about 15-20 from Yangshuo, it is a bit remote but easily accessible. We borrowed a bike to explore the gorgeous scenic surroundings and rented an electric scooter at night to go into town. The distance does restrict your choices in restaurants,... More
