A friend and I had just got finished a business trip in Beijing and were really looking forward to some R&R. The Mandarin is such a beautiful property, we were greeted so warmly upon arrival and the fantastic hospitality never ended. The breakfast buffet was great, tons of choices, just go early to avoid the throngs of children. The pools... More

The Restaurant Inside the Mandarin Oriental is located directly at the ocean and sitting outside is beautifull. You have some mosquitos to handle but this is ok. The fresh is a fish restaurant and they offer a good selection of fish. Our meals were small and priced high like Hongkong 50-60€ per course. Drinks are in the 10€ range each.... More

We have eaten here a few times over the years and in our experience there is no better restaurant in Sanya. The location on the beach is simply delightful, the service excellent and most of all the food superb! Last night we had the goats cheese tart and Hainan prawns for starters & snapper + spatchcock for mains, all dishes... More

Tasting menu was without doubt the best meal I've ever had in China. Thank you to the team for such a wonderful experience - we were not hotel guests but were made to feel on top of the world - birthday dinner, set on a special veranda where the waves crashed against the beach, and the sun set.... Food was... More

We were there twice.The food was excellent, the location is beautiful with a view on the sea.The service was good,always friendly and smiling.Just that they couldn't stop pouring fizzy water in a glass where there was still water and vice versa.That was a bit annoying.

Wonderful and idyllic. Tables are literally on the beach. Food is amazing and colourful. Of course it has a cost but totally worth it. Staff was welcoming and very friendly. Would definitely recommend if romantic night. Accessible by taxi. (10¥ from downtown Dadonghai)

Summary: Fine dinning directly at the waterside. The biggest upside is the very nice location, just few metres above the sea with the smooth sound of waves in the background. The food is Western and ok, the service need some improvements but very friendly. Budget: Calculate 500 RMB per person w/o wine. Upsides Location: been placed at the Mandarin Oriental... More

With a great view of the bay and a chance to check out Sanya's best hotel this is a great place for dinner. The restaurant area is relatively small and intimate and the staff does a great job. The prices are quite reasonable for an elite hotel in Sanya. The food was good but not exceptional but the setting and... More

If your in the resort, or in the area, eat here at least once. We had a birthday weekend in the resort and Fresh restaurant for dinner on birthday evening. The level of attention of the staff was superb but not too over the top, very professional. The food was excellent, I could not fault one moment.. Thank you for... More
