The 50 km distance from the city center does not pose a problem as public transport is very cheap and convenient. Bus No. 3 stops right at the resort entrance and a RMB1 ride brings you to the bus terminal. From there an air conditioned express bus brings you to the city center at People's Park for RMB12. Beyond that,... More

The resort is hour and half by car from the central city of Shanghai, about 20 minutes to nearby a historical water city Zhu Jia Jiao. We had a 2BR villa. It was just remodeled with nice furnitures. There are enough kitchen supplies but no dishwasher. The full kitchen does not arranged properly that needs more space and outlets. However,... More

Had a wonderful time at sun island. The staff were very friendly and we got a lot of assistance from the customer service group. The resort is a fair way from Shanghai but it's locationhas a nice rural feel and you are still able to visit a number of quaint river towns. The transport to Shanghai via the public buses... More

The hotel (except the room) is very nice and the hotel staff are friendly. There is a very nice golf course. Everything is good apart from the bed which is very hard and uncomfortable. Hence, we did not sleep well during our 1-week stay. Another thing I did not like was the room service: On the last day before we... More

We are back again for a week this summer. The villa is nicely decorated, better than last time. Shuttle bus super convenient. Only complaint is the slides at the wave pool are closed the whole week we will be here. Apparently closed since early July and looks like nothing is being done to repair it.

The hotel is located on a green island, about 45 minutes drive away from Shanghai. It is a great getaway for a weekend, either with family or friends. They have plenty of fun activities to fill up a day or two, but it will also cost you a lot of money. Excellent breakfast buffet included. The rooms are a bit... More
