“Too congested for international standards”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

Standing in long line for breakfast... Sitting in corridor provisional tables for dinner... Noisy, busy and stressed for eating there.... Worst, most tables are for smoking people (just a few tables at the back reserved for non-smokers).
Swimming pool is nice in shape, yet almost all of it is far too shallow - just 1.00-1.20m (to save water).
Bottom line - good for locals. Not good place for who cherishes International standards. Locals don't care for congestion, noise, standing in long lines and smoke. Most of them can't swim anyhow... And when there is sun outside - all hide in their rooms and ...sleep

This hotel is amazing for the swimming - lover, except the swimming pool, there is a castle in the pool, kids will have much fun

Their rooms are nice, everything are prefect.... only disappointed thing is I can't have my room at 2:00pm since the room is not ready.. ppl was check-out already but less labour for cleaning up, they pass the key to us at 2pm, but we found the room was dirty until 4pm...

We haven't go anywhere after dinner since we don't know where should we go....

I think I will be there again if i have a kid

Room Tip: Pls be reminded to have the room which can be access to pool directly from balcony

Stay only one night 2 weeks ago. Direct booked with hotel summer promotional package. Reservation thru their online system and email enquiries replied quick. Check in efficient and professional. Most of the staff were nice, friendly and helpful. They were trying their best to accommodate the guests. We had a room with direct access to the swimming pool, lots of leaves in the pool close to our balcony, cleaners managed to clear them up in a few minutes. The room is spacious with a king size bed, (two double bed combined), but too hard that our back were a bit painful the next day. Should have to request a softer bed. Resort is big and there are shuttles to drive you anywhere within the resort. Dinner and breakfast were average but with the package prices inclusive, quality were fair enough. Dinner time were packed with people and local people not queuing up for seats and messing around instead, restaurant staff were trying very hard to maintain their professional service....!
I think it is more suitable for family with small kids. Checked out efficient but locals again wanted to cut in the line, front desk officer keep asking them to queue up.....! There's also an entertainment street starts from 9.30pm, free entrance and complimentary drinks but forget it, it is very noisy and boring. Drinks tasted horrible.

Room Tip: room - make sure to book a softer bed dinner - book your table in advance and arrive punctually

I have stayed at this Hotel a couple of times before and they always make you welcome on your return. The hotel is extremely spacious including the rooms and it caters well for holdiay's as well as business travellers.
The breakfasts are always popular and have a good range of western and Asian food catering for all. The bar and club is always popular but far enough away from the rooms to ensure you are not bothered by the noise.
Fully recomended!

The hotel is unique in the sense that it has a good mix of everything...including a Punjabi and Hindi speaking staff member from India, a band from Philippines, an outdoor pool overlooking the lake and an indoor heated pool with an indoor mini pool/jacuzzi, well maintained and good quality billiards tables, table tennis tables, children's play area, sauna, spa etc. I did not have time to explore the whole hotel in the three days I was there as time was also spent playing golf in the nearby golf clubs (2 of them and Mission Hill Golf Club is one of the best!). The rooms are decent sized and the best ones overlook the lake. The (big) bathroom has a shower as well as a tub adjacent to windows that overlooks the lake. The rooms have a balcony where they provide a exercycle and stand to dry clothes. Staff are extremely polite and courteous and everything points towards good management standards. Compare this hotel with double priced poor quality hotels in Europe and USA with stiff lipped and high nosed staff and not even one tenth of the amenities in this hotel and you would want to come here again and again...

Room Tip: Rooms facing the lake offer privacy, quiet and a good view..

There is something about non mainstream hotels in China that doesnt quite work for me.
This newish hotel is clean, modern and large. Next to a man made lake part of a housing development it should "tick all the boxes".
But for some reason it doesnt, to be fair I only stayed one night.
I think it maybe the bizarre decor, starting with the three story internal void "night club", to the unusual chandiler in the foyer.
In this part of China the choice is not large, this place is ok and I would stay there again, maybe I need some more stays to get it.

This is a very good standard hotel with great restaurants (Chinese & Japanese) plus a great breakfast and evening buffet, with a huge choice of food.
The hotel caters for business people, but also Golfers as there is a good standard Golf complex close by (I'm not a golfer, so it's only what I was told!).
The rooms are a good size, my only complaint being that the bed was far too hard for me and when I requested a change I was informed that there would be a charge for a softer mattress!
Other than this issue, the service levels are very good and the staff very friendly.
