It's probably the best you can get around Yangshuo, that is for Chinese standards. Yet if it were in Europe or elsewhere in Asia, you would probably be a lot more critical about this resort hotel. The rooms are spacious with a bath and a shower, TV flatscreen, internet (be it slow). The room we were in looked renovated, nothing wrong with it, although quite a bit of walking at the end of the resort (which, in 38 degrees Celsius with a very high humidity, is a long walk). The airco is somewhat of a problem (if you really like it cold, which is not bad with these temperatures, don’t expect to get it below 26-27 degrees).
The beds are hard, but asking for an extra duvet on the matrass will make it slightly more comfortable. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious, that's the best description I can come up with. A shower and a bath (be it right in the middle of the room). The resort has two restaurants, a Western and a Chinese. We arrived late (in a unbearably hot reception area (over 40 degrees!), without airco or even a fan) and could only eat in the Chinese restaurant, as the Western was closed at 08.45 pm. Most of the dishes on the menu were “sold out” and we ended up with a weird chicken dish, extremely poor. In the neighborhood better restaurants can be found, and cheaper too. The bar near the river Li is unmanned at most times and by the time you found someone willing to service you a drink, your coffee is cold as it needs to be brought in from the main building.
Breakfast is good (we were in summertime, on a Sunday so be prepared for a massive number of loud Chinese tourist). The swimming pool is large and fun for kids, yet too warm for me (better to take a dive in the nearby river). All in all the best you can possibly get in Yangshuo where luxury hotellerie is still in its infancy. It is as luxurious as it gets here, but surely good enough for a comfortable stay.
