After reading all about the various hotels I just don't know what to choose. Sheraton and Hilton are too expensive for us. I read good reviews about both Holiday Inn hotels (Sanya Bay and Yalong Bay). We are also strongly considering the Resort Intim Sanya in Dadonghai. We just basically want to relax at a beautiful pool and beach and skip the artificial tourist traps I have read about. We will have already been to Shanghai, Hangzhou and Guilin/Yangshou so at the end of our trip we don't need more sights. We don't want to spend an enormous amount of money either. I am an American living in Germany. My German husband has been in Shanghai on business for five months now. During my visit to him in April we plan on flying from Shanghai to Hainan for five nights. Because it is hard to find a decent map online, I can't really determine if I prefer to be at Yalong Bay or Dadong Bay or elsewhere.
Maybe someone can make some recommendations so that we can finally book a hotel.
