Sorry I cannot follow the bad descriptions. We had a good time at the hotel and
we didn't miss any night life. We have been there for relaxing and this hotel gives it all.
Beach, Pool and friendly service.
So we decided to come back.

The hotel is located across the street from the ocean, but not on the ocean like many other newer hotels on the same street . This is a good choice if you get a great deal. Sanya is so nice to see, but this is not an exclusive hotel with really nice features. The hotel chef is beyond outstanding. We were on a cooking tour and did several tasting with the head chef. One traveller asked to see the kitchen on the spur of the moment... and they promptly took us back. It was spotless at kept clean to a very high standard. We were all westerners and didn't have any complications with the food.

The staff tries really hard to make to you happy, but really don't have any ability to speak to you in English like other major hotels in China.

The rooms are very outdated with super hard beds. The enitre hotel hasn't been kept up with reno's and such. I have stayed at much nicer places all over the world - this is not world class status. It is not dirty, but it's old. Stay here if you can get a great rate.
