Well... just arrived here and staying for two nights. Decided to get away from the hustle and bustle of Dadonghai, and found a good price on this online (130 US$, vs the usual 250 US$). Transfer from Sanya to the hotel was efficient thanks to the military licensed coach (no regards to traffic rules, hence arrived safely in 35min).
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere, without access to shops, public transport or restaurants. So you kind of at the merci of the restaurants here. Whilst they exist inside the hotel, quite a few in fact, they don't always open when u hungry. So that leaves you with room service.
The hotel, as mentioned by others is run by the PLA. Not a problem as such, except the hotels beach is adjacent to a millitary compound (which u cannot see). This means that the South East part of the beach is no off limits, stopping you from walking along the beach to the nearby fishing village. In fact, a soldier is stationed on the beach inside the hotel compound, and stops you from even heading in that direction. There is a fence, to stop you from walking there, but that guy stops you 100m before the fence, almost as soon as you turn his direction when arriving on the beach. Plus he was neither polite nor making any sense. Put the fence 100m closer to the beach, if its forbidden to go near there! Its not like there is anything to see on the other side, just more of the same beach. It would make a nice spot if one was allowed to wonder along the beach to the fishing village 1.5km away, but not possible.
Service is generally ok so far - they made a few hiccups, but forgiven, as they genuinely seem to try. The place is massive and with some nice landscaped garden, with loads of pools, small and large. Including one infinity pool towards the ocean. There are also hotspring pools, which might be nice to chill in the night, as its hot in the day. Unfortunately there are signs that say all pools close at 21:00. Lets see if they kick us out this eve...!
Rooms are on the large side and well equipped, with comfy beds and functional showers, all seem to have a private (open) balcony and walk in closet.
