Thought about trying this resort because of its Thai name, but somehow the weather in Sanya seemed to be quite unstable in the summer time. So I made it in October. The first thing I had to say Hainanese people are pretty friendly in general, as compared to other cities in China.
The pool villa is pretty nice and I paid for a deluxe pool villa but I somehow prefer their standard pool villa as the living room is in a more open area that I like more sunshine in the villa.
All the staff in this resort are very friendly and helpful by giving tips about the restaurants and places to visit.
The restaurant's breakfast is not bad, but the a-la-carte menu for lunch and dinner time is somewhat quite pricey. Paid RMB148 for a stir fried noodle. It's a very small portion and at least the presentation should be better and the food isn't too good. I don't mind eating at the resort if the quality and portion are justified. So this is a minor for this resort.
As for the pool villa, everything is nice except the pool design doesn't let the upper level of water go and so quite dirty on the water surface. Hope the management can fix this. Other than this, it's perfect.
The beach seems to be not good for swimming. Quite a waste but not the problem of the resort as I notice there are quite many constructions nearby.
