“Not my cup of tea”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

We stayed in a 2 BR unit. The unit was a bit dated, minimal amenities. They provided a hot water pot and two tea bags. There is no kitchen and the living room furniture was sub standard. The A/C barely worked leaving the unit hot and humid.
The closest village is about a 15 minute walk down the hill, difficult to buy things and lug it back up the hill. If you go, buy water. The resort charges 10RMB for a small bottle. The town had 4 restaurants and a bunch of mom and pop stores, no real shopping. You have to pay to get on the beach (hotel does not have a pool or workout area). We were not impress with the resort or the area. The kids were very bored. We left on the 2nd day of a 7 day planned vacation. If you do intend to stay there please rent a car.

My dad booked this through a timeshare arrangement, and we had to spend a week here. I was bored to death. We stayed in one of the penthouse suites.

Pros > free wireless internet;
>decent beds

Cons > no swimming pool (they really should build one, considering how much land they have; and the beach is not near at all, it's a good 20mins hike, not walk, down the hill);
> 2.5hrs bus ride to town (one way, yup so 5hrs travelling time if you want to go shopping; i opted to stay in 3 days out of 7, and was just so happy to be going HKG after checking out);
> restaurant food and in-room dining was slightly worse than average (ate only to fill my stomach, thankfully bought cookies on my days out);
> beach is dismal, sand is brown, and have to pay for entrance
> room looked impressive at first, then after staying a few days, realised the maintenance was really bad; the second floor bathtub started leaking and even pouring onto the first floor bathtub; walls and roof had signs of leaking
> staff not really properly trained, they are nice enough, but clearly not trained properly; engineer who was sent to fix the leak wasn't even aware that there was a second bathtub
> journey from airport; took us 3hrs and we had to change cab halfway because the first cab that took us is only allowed to travel to the edge of the city and the Hotel was in the outskirts of the next province! and we can speak Mandarin, imagine the hassle if one does not speak Mandarin and is traveling without a tour group!

probably the only possibility for this Hotel is when you come here in a group or meeting and activities are planned for you already... otherwise there's absolutely nothing to come here for, no pool, no great dining experience... in short, not worth the effort at all.

It is a great place to go for peace and quiet, They took good care of us. It is a short walk to the townand beach (10 yaun) per person. The rooms are very clean and the staff are very kind and overall great place. It is sad to see most of the buildings are not being used very well put together. Would be a wonderful place to live if it was closer to city center 1 hour by bus. We had a great time in our room.
