Just returned from my 3rd trip to Sanya. The city claims itself as China's Hawaii and attracts tourists from all over China seeking warm warmth and sunshine. The weather there lives up to its reputation, right temperature and perfect humidity. But like the rest of China, air quality is getting worse with a thick layer of grey haze overshadowing the otherwise blue sky.
The positives: hotel is centrally located in the prestine Yalong Bay, with fine white sandy beach and clean sea water for swimming. Rooms are spacious and clean.
The negatives: service is laid back and sometime lacking (although no tipping is required). A popular site for corporate functions, it is common to see mid-aged Chinese businessmen sitting in the lobby or restaurant enjoying a smoke while chatting loudly.
Bottom line: If you have young children or enjoy quiet relaxation, this may not be the perfect hotel for you.
