“Fresh air and convinient dinner”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

We liked system of pools(incl.pool for children with sand) and hot water
pool, slides was super!
In front of exit of building 1 there are a lot of cafes with nice
food(Pizza hut is the best)
Not bad breakfast(poor choice of fruits).
Fresh air (if compare with Sanya city)
Very good for families with children
BTW, there are a lot of choice pillows and blankets(silk, with lavander,
with green tea - you can order free of charge :) It;s nice !

"-" We stayed 7 days. Only 1 day the balcony was cleaned. Never add tea
bags, shampoo, etc, which should be renewed every day.
The weahter in the end of november was not more than 25C, so we used hot
water pool almost every day.
No door, which should separate bathroom and room (only curtain), so very noisy if baby sleep and you need to use bathroom or toilet :(

Good:
Huge resort between the new and old structures
Lots of great restaurants choices within hotel ranging from Chinese to pizza and burgers and you can also take advantage of neighboring Crowne Plaza hotel
Beach access is perfect. Private with beach bar and organized beach access
Huge pools and whirl pools with a separate pool for kids equipped with water slide
Also salt water wading pool
Beds are very comfortable
Internet access within room but wifi only available in lobby

Not-so-good:
Breakfast buffet was average - decent selection but you'll tire of it quickly
Service was par, don't expect to be greeted by employees or even a smile
Rooms are dated, try to get room in new building
Biggest beef was the prices which are comparable to western hotels and restaurants. Had seafood BBQ/hotspot on resort and dinner was over $150 CAD for two people
I guess b/c my last trip to china was 10 years ago, I didn't realize how much the cost of living has dramatically increased
Thin walls and cigarette smoking allowed which permeated into our room

Dont buy from in-hotel souvenir shop. Good little clothes/trinkets markets down the beach, near the tour-bus drop-off area.

Just across the street is a huge strip mall with lots of food options but don't think you're saving cash by eating off the property, it's pricey as well. This is applicable to all of Sanya, not just the resort/tourist areas.

If your looking to tour around, ask hotel to arrange private driver. This costs about $45 for the entire day and your driven around in style as oppose to local taxis who will also offer tour expeditions.

Room Tip: Ask for new building and non-smoking if possible

I would agree with every word in the review of Jagooah which he wrote back in December , 2009. Nothing seems to have changed over these 1.5 years. We also chose this hotel as recommended for families with children solely for the purpose of having our 7 year old son occupied with some activities which children need in abundance to keep them and parents equally happy. The beach is great, with a lot of sunshades which is very helpful out on a sunny and hot day.
The rooms in building 1 where we lived вшв not seem new but truly clean and well maintained by the personnel which proved to be very attentive and friendly. Inadequate knowledge of English sometimes created minor issues but that was not vital and could easily be skipped and neglected. A very good feature is a free in-room computer with Internet connection (also free) which one could use as a CD/DVD player as well (again good for kids with their own preferences of cartoons).
The prices in hotel restaurants were truly high for China, but just across the street the Crowne Plaza center could easily cater to many of anybody's needs at rather reasonable prices (either for good coffee, ice-cream, pizza, or for Chinese cuisine etc including a small Chinese pharmacy, spa, shopping center, children amusements). At night the Plaza offers a live performance right there in the center of it which makes your stay even more enjoying. At the same time, the hotel itself also has a couple of singers who brilliantly perform every night in Building 1, which made me feel more convinced that our Building 1 was a much better place then Building 2, which at that time was in the process of some renovation (right in the lobby of Buildig 2 some works were underway, although I can't say I could hear them going on, but they mismatched the atmosphere). While the lobby and all the ground floor areas of Building 1 seemed extremely cosy and blending with the overall environment of the wonderful tropical garden, which in fact was another point for me to choose this hotel (in addition to the child-friendly focuse). The staff at the kid's center was very caring and my son loved coming there even despite the fact that he could not speak with them (they speak Chinese and some English).
One of strange things was that swimming at sea was allowed only from 9:00 to 19:00. Although we understand the reason behind this rule. One of swimming pools (the largest of them) was open till 22:00. The only thing quite disappointing is that the water in all of them was very warm.
All in all, we arrived to a conclusion that there is no need to go to the city Center which is about half ah nour taxi drive from the hotel. This whole area together with the Crowne plaza is relaxing and complete.

Everything's good. Nice average hotel. Room is newly refurbished. But now it's ASEAN forum here in Sanya. And I have had a problem with delivery of my express mail. When I addressed to to personnel they say it's impossible to deal with this. So I personally have to go to city center. Ridiculous.

One of the best-designed hotels in Sanya! Fabulous gardens! Service not as good as some nearby hotels, but atmosphere makes up for it. Nice Thalassotherapy spa

Stayed for three days. Service and room were top-notch. Food was excellent. Only a couple of complaints - wanted a small glass of milk for my tea - bought small paper cup full - was charged 45 yuan ($7+). Ran out of cigarettes - hotel cost 75 yuan for pack of smokes that is 10 yuan at any small store. Needed a hat - bought a baseball hat ( basic - no frills) at the hotel store - for only 245 yuan ($41)! Everything else was as close to perfect as any resort hotel could be. Even had free internet computer right in the room - nice touch!
