Horrendous! Apart from bring vastly over priced, the staff isn't particularly helpful (to say the least) and the place is filled with seedy characters. If there's one place to stay clear of during your trip to Sanya, it's this one!

Visited the Dolphin Bar after finding on tripadvisor and wasn't disappointed, Lovely food and staff that speaks good english (quite unusual when in China).We had been looking for Western type food and saw they do special burger only 30rmb and tiger draft beer buy one get one free on Monday. Prices are standard for Western places so I'd recommend going for happy hour or on a Monday. Huge portions and good service !

Had lunch here a couple of times and food is fine, drinks fine and service all fine.

If you want some Western Fayre in the midst of heavily Chinese cuisine/beverages, this fits the bill perfectly.

Our hotel recommended this and it wasn't great but not terrible. The atmosphere is more middling Midwest sports bar than tropical vacation bar/restaurant. Smokey even in the afternoon and dark inside. We felt like we were entering Mo's Bar from the Simpsons. Chicken strips had a weird artificial taste, poutine had black olives in it... Quesadilla was ok. Wait staff were terrible, problems ordering in Chinese even. We resorted to just pointing at the menu but the waitress was on the extreme slow and after she went away and we thought our orders were in, she sent another (friendlier) waitress to take our orders and finally it was settled. After that no service. We even had to get up to get our bill despite there being no one else there and many waitresses (dressed in their 'sexy' leiderhosen). We gave up on Sanya after this and didn't leave our resort the rest of the trip. Don't go to this resto unless you're craving bland western food.
