Spent 4 nights at the Yalong Bay location and found it to be a great stay and probably the best location on the beach among the many hotels in the area. Though we arrived rather late at night, the front desk was very accommodating, especially when I found that the bed in our suite was rock hard, which is typical of hotels in China. (I try to book "western" hotels when in China in hopes of finding a softer bed because of my bad lower back).
The front desk sent a somewhat "softer" mattress alternative to the room right away, and the next morning continued the search for a "pillow top" insert (which they found), and threw in an extra duvet comforter as added padding to boot! Made all the difference in the world!
This time of year is low season for the resort, so the hotel was not very busy, but the service was not lacking and the food offerings were more than adequate. The weather was hit and miss thunder showers, but the ocean / air temp was perfect and the pool(s) like bath water. The location is closest to the beach compared with the other hotels in the immediate area, and with an ocean view room on the top floor, the view and sounds of the surf were just what we were hoping for.
We were credited with RMB200 towards food during our stay, had two hours of free bicycle rental, a free hour on the tennis court and a fruit basket greeted us in the room upon our arrival.
All in all a great stay, and I am looking forward to going back again!
