“Large room. Free wifi in lobby. Facilitated with large swimming pools, garden and private beaches.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

The hotel is located in the western coast of Haikou City where there are long quiet beaches. Not far away Sheraton and Shangri-la hotels & resorts are located there too. The area is very suitable for vacations, with beautiful sights.

The balcony of the room faces the sea. It is that large so you can place two sun chairs on it to enjoy the sun. You can also hang your wet clothes and swimwear out to make them dry easily.

Like the rooms of other hotels in Hainan Province, due to its hot weather, none carpet is set in the room.

There are both fixed and movable shower heads in the bathroom. However the water flow is not massive enough.

The place where socket in the mini bar is too high for the guests to insert the wire of the electronic kettle, because the wire is not long enough to reach it. Thus I had to move the kettle to other socket. But I can smell the disinfectant from the boiled water.

The corridors of the hotel are not sealed, so the guests can see the sea. When I arrived there in the evening, I could see many winged insects were attracted by the light and flying there. I guess the girls who are afraid of insects will feel scared.

Several large scaled swimming pools are on the ground floor, with water depth from 1.4m to 1.7m. Other facilities include hot-spring and fitness rooms. The ground floor actually is a beautiful garden too. You can walk to private beach from there. But the sea there is not for swimming. I can see many couples taking their pre-wedding portraits there. The scenery is very beautiful.

I'm finally getting around to writing this review many months after the fact. I stayed here for a conference in march 2012. It didn;t help that it was cloudy and gray the whole time I was there so maybe that biased my opinions but I did not particularly enjoy my stay here. There are construction sites all around so the scereny is not great. There is a real dearth of greenery. The furnishings are spartan and the tile floors, while easy to clean I am sure, don't lend much in terms of comfort or warmth. The restaurant downstairs is okay but has very limited hours and the hotel was not close to any other food vending establishments.

Maybe this area will be further developed and turn into a real destination but I found it lacking.

Came here for a night's stay in July and was pleasantly pleased with the hotel. The room was clean but we were welcomed by a damp smell but overall the room was very comfortable. The bathroom however was a bit of a problem as there is no door and there is no proper wall, it is literally see through. There was a blind you could pull down but you could still see through so when showering and going to the toilet you will have no privacy! Breakfast was good, there was a large selection of food which was constantly being replenished. Very happy with the service we got.
