Before visiting the BT in Sanya I read many of the reviews on this site. I gotta tell ya, some of them are missing the point of this place.
The grounds are impeccable and beautifully designed. The common spaces allow the sense of relative privacy and there is never a sense of crowding. The dining rooms are equally spacious and impeccably designed. The size of the property relative to the number of villas and guests transcends spaciousness.
Our villa was lovely, and clean, and the attention from the staff to maintenance was top notch. We could have used a bit more explanation concerning the use of the electronics and hot tub, but had everything figured out through some simple trial and error. The spa was nice, and the Thai massage a delight. My wife had a facial which wasn't the best she ever had, but pleasurable nonetheless.
Here's what you need to remember:
1.) You're in China.
2.) You're in China.
We've visited a number of cities in China, and stayed in only top notch hotels, including BTs. What the staff here MAY lack in training, they make up for in willingness to please. Treat the staff respectfully and a little patience, and you will be repaid with unlimited effort.
