We stayed in this hotel in late September 2012 for 10 days. I meant to write this review sometime back already. I rarely give out public reviews but for this hotel we wanted to make an exception. First we were a bit hesitant to book a hotel that far from downtown Xiamen, but then changed our minds as thought it being a good idea to get away from the noise and traffic and find a place were we could just relax. The hotel rates were, at least at the time, relatively low.
The taxi driver struggled to find the place first and fortunately one of us spoke Chinese to be able to explain the address in Chinese characters. It is not a bad idea to have the address on you in Chinese characters, by the way, to avoid any unwanted detours. The island itself is not that exciting, however there were a lot of construction and building sites at the time which I believe must have already been developed. Taxi gets you to town in 15-20 minutes and is affordable.
The hotel staff was extremely friendly, flexible and helpful. Most of them also know basic English. I can warmly recommend this hotel!
