It was my uncle who booked this hotel for us to stay during our visit to Haikou in May 2011. We stayed there for 4 nights and our room were facing the sea with wonderful scenery during the night.They gave us four rooms next to each other even there is no connecting rooms for us
The location was very convenient where you can move freely around the area. Rooms were clean and staff are helpful. If you want any day tour opposite the hotel at the park there are a few tour agent where you can book the day tour or you can check with the hotel staff.The park opposite the hotel was nice where you can fly kite in the evening. Many people jogging in evening, children will enjoy playing and running around in the big field.
For us we did not join any tour as we were visiting our relatives there. Most of the time my cousin and uncle will bring us round. We did tried a day trip to Sanya as we did not have enough time and it is very expensive as everywhere you go you need to pay the entrance fees. The 波萝po luo noodle was very nice and tasty at Sanya and even at Haikou town. According to my cousin is will be cheaper if you join the tour to Sanya where everything was included. Seafoods were fresh and nice, you must really try their fresh prawns. The four local dishes you must try too.
During end May till June the weather is very hot where you can feel the heat but not as bad as Singapore. We took the cab to shopping area and it was not so expensive as long as you know where to go. As some of the days my cousin was too busy to bring us round. But do note that there is alway traffic jam in the morning and in the evening around the hotel area. During busy hours looking for cab not easy, they don't have the queuing system. Even when a cab stop right in front of you someone can just go up to cab and they don't care as long as they got in first so be prepare for that. Speaking in Mandarin not a problem but many of them still speak in Hainanese. To us we felt at home as we are Hainanese.
Give yourselves a try when you in Haikou. Nice and cozy place.
