After spending 3 nights in sanya's marriott and spa resort, we stayed for 1 night at this hotel before catching our flight back to sg. We were pleasantly surprised that service wise, they were up to par with marriott. The front desk check in lady spoke equal or better english to the marriott's, and they actually have a concierge, while marriott did not. (although marriott is still a very nice hotel...read my review at the marriott site on marriott hotel as well as train tips to and from yalong bay)
One tripadvisor person told me there is a good massage place opp this hotel, and we saw it...it was huge..but we didnt have time to try it.
The hotel is quite close to the shopping areas by taxi..about rmb15. We didnt enjoy the shopping malls but the night market was quite interesting, especially when the authorities came..it was interesting to see the speed at which the vendors cleared up and within minutes, setting up again.
I find that shopping in haikou is nothing to shout about but i enjoyed walking the streets and seeing the locals do their thing.
Next to the hotel there are some shops so if you want some local feel, head there and go towards the back street where there is a wet market. We had breakfast there and also bought some buns for the flight back.
The room is pretty good, drinks in the mini fridge (water, some soft drinks and beer) were free. Its clean and quite spacious, only thing is you get a queen size bed instead of king, so sleep was not so good because there were 2 of us. Also you get one proper pillow and one cushion, instead of 2 proper pillows.
Overall quite happy with our stay especially since the rate is quite reasonable.
