“Perfect holiday resort for families”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

Stayed at Chimelong Hotel during Xmas 2013. Fully booked with families celebrating the Xmas. All hotel was breathing Xmas spirit, lots of decorations and staff in seasonal dresses. Even the real Santa Claus from Finland was brought to Chimelong! Huge property with 1500 rooms, many restaurants, shopping centre etc. Big breakfast buffet at White Tiger restaurant. Amazing to have breakfast with live tigers & flamingos ( only a glass between us! ). Spacious rooms, good service. Overrall very good experiemce. Will come back!

Room Tip: It´s a huge property. Ask room from the building next to reception & White Tiger restaurant.

Good hotel but a bit far from the city even if you take the metro. Need to allot 30-45 minutes travel if you plan to go to the city center. Shuttle bus will operate til 10pm. You can still take taxi or private cars entering the complex but you would need to negotiate for a decent price.


Asked concierge for the best seafood restaurant nearby. They recommended yumin restaurant (fisher village). There is a shopping area about 20 minutes travel by taxi. At the corner of the shopping area is the master kong noodle house. A must try.

Room is spacious. Housekeeping services need to improve as there are several guests and rooms in the complex.

Chime long hotel is around 60 km from the Guangzhou airport and is a part of big resort in my knowledge. The hotel is surrounded by one amusement park called Chime long paradise and a big safari park. The hotel which is situated in middle of the resort itself is big with independent blocks for the guest. I was in Block 3 and it was bit away from the main lobby in actual. I found it really wired to find my room in the late night.

Myself, did check in and check out at odd timings, and that's why I couldn't find any problem in these. But I could see real crowds at the front desk during peak times. Room service took 1 hour to get me an adaptor to charge my phone, that too after 3-4 reminders.

I needed to pay for my break fast as it was not included in my room rent. It was too expensive in my point, around 25 USD. In the break fast hall, it was too crowded in real, you have to sometimes run for a table if you are alone. It was really funny thing, that I had to find another table after finishing my first set. When I went to take my second plate another group captured my table...ha ha...

Let me point out certain good things too...My room was big with all things kept in place...Big cupboard, big LCD, big toilet and a big balcony too. Daily you get 2 bottles of water, fruits, toys for your kids as complimentary. The wi fi was full free and it was too strong too. I could get the signal even 100 meters away from the hotel...

After all, what I can say, it's not a hotel worth spending USD 140+ a night for a business traveler like me...But if you consider all the factors like nearby safari park and amusement park and you are here for a complete leisure trip with your family, this is your destination for sure !!!!

Moved from Sheraton to this hotel for a quiet weekend. Well, to start with, this is a family and conference hotel, so peace and quiet was certainly out of the question. The rooms were tolerable ( stayed in a superior room). BUT I will still recommend friends to come here for the following reasons: (1) breakfast with the white tigers and flamingos in the hotel-- one can never get that close to white tigers especially;(2) a five minute walk to the chime long international circus-- a great act that mixes technology and acrobatics in a show, and when we are all tired of the cirque du soleil formula, this show is a good break since they brought back animals into the circus;(3) a ten minute walk to the chime long amusement park that has I believe one of the most challenging roller coasters in the world; and lastly, (4) a free shuttle ride to the chime long zoo. It's better than the Singapore Safari zoo, and I'd say its one of the zoos with the most comprehensive animal collection. If you're new to china, this is a good place to see the pandas ( better than going to chengdu).

Myself and a colleague stayed at the Chime Long Hotel for 3 nights during November 2013, it was booked by a supplier for us and I have no positive words to say about this hotel, the fact that it is marketed as a 5 star hotel is utterly ridiculous, my room was dirty and smelled damp, looking at other reviews other people have also reported this, in fact I took to wearing my crocs whenever in the room to save getting hairs and dirt stuck to my feet. Once in the 'so called' resort you are captive to them and the cost of food and drink are ridiculous (25USD for a bowl of pasta, 10USD for a beer). All around the hotel they have enclosures with miserable looking white tigers inside. Best to avoid this hotel, it's poor value for money and a miserable experience.

I stayed here twice in two weeks. First I stayed at the ordinary room, it is big, clean and very comfortable beds. Next when I was with my family we stayed at the suite. This room was a bit simpler than the ordinary room, I guess because it is big so there are so many blank spaces. Room rates are actually very reasonable, suites are cheaper than ordinary rooms in most hotels in Sentosa Singapore. We really had great time here.

The hotel has animals all over the place which is nice and different, kids just love this. Amenities are just great, service is exceptional (although not everyone speaks english) and food is a definite yes.

The hotel has free shuttles to the theme parks, port and MTR station. It has buses going to Hong Kong. If you arrive at the airport you can take the MTR to Changlong station with one interchange at Tiyu Xilu. From there take the hotel shuttle.

Room Tip: Get a room that doesn't face the parks, it can be noisy when there is an event.

This is a very large hotel The lobby has a bar and behind it in a glass enclosure are some snow tigers. All over the property in various pockets one sees wild animals. The rooms are large and very comfortable.
The check in and check out process takes a long time as there are always a lot of people there.
The service is good considering the size.
During the Canton Fair the rooms are very expensive otherwise very reasonably priced hotel.

Room Tip: Try and find a room as near to the reception as possible.
