I really wanted to love this place, which is beautifully situated on the Li River. The deluxe family room is lovely and very large but lacks privacy when you are traveling with 3 teenagers, two rooms would have worked out better. It didn't have a balcony which would have been nice and the wifi signal was weak on the third floor at the end of the hall. The restaurant is okay only and pricey, as otherwise you have to make the long 30 minute walk to town. Staff was helpful in booking tours but busy so it was difficult for them to give you attention.

Dear Shannon R,

Our Family rooms all have curtains that give privacy and can be opened up so that people can enjoy the views from the bathtub which is really nice. The shower and toilets all have walls and doors also giving privacy. So it is up to each family to decide how much privacy they prefer.

All of our staff at reception are available to provide information on site seeing options and to book tours. There are always a few of us around who can also help. It can be busy at times as we provide detailed information to our guests, this way they can have a great experience in Yangshuo.

Anyway, it was great to have all of you stay with us.

Kind regards
Alf

We stayed at this hotel for the second part of our stay. It’s perched on a slope that looks over the River Li and is beautifully designed in a classically Chinese style. We were lucky enough to have a balcony that looked out over the river and had stunning views rain or shine. The rooms were a good size but there was no separate partition for the bathroom. There were separate cubicles for the toilet and shower and the sinks were in the main room. The owner speaks very good English and was always very friendly and helpful in telling us about the local area. We ate at the restaurant most nights as the food was so good. If you do eat there then do make sure you try the Beer Fish as it was the best dish we had on our trip China, just delicious. We decided to have it 2 nights in a row and were disappointed to find that they had run out of fish on the second night. The young waiter said not to worry as he would nip into town and buy us some if we could wait 20 mins or so. Now that’s service for you! We found the staff to always be friendly and helpful. The hotel is set just outside of the bustling town but it’s only about a 20 minute walk into town so you get the best of both worlds as it’s in such a peaceful location. This was a lovely hotel and I would certainly recommend staying here.

Beautifully decorated hotel, garden and pool. Open since March after renovation. Very tasteful and warm (building) materials including furniture. Splendid view on river and mountains. Very kind and service oriented management and staff. No fixed timing for breakfast, lunch and dinner (great flexibility for guests). Great variety of food. Big pool. WiFi. Laundry possibilities. Ten minutes by bike or 25 minutes walk from Weststreet along the river.

Dear Pauline V,

Thank you for your kind words. Our entire team has been handpicked to provide a very good level of service and we are all working hard to keep improving.

It is interesting that you mentioned that we do not have fixed timings for breakfast. We do find many of our guests like to sleep in as it is so quiet around our location. Therefore we cater for them and can have a 'very late' breakfast.

We also know that many of our guests want to see Yangshuo in many different ways, so we have so much information available to everyone so they can all choose the sites and activities that they prefer. This way, we hope that everyone has a great experience in Yangshuo.

I love our pool and I am glad that you also enjoyed it. It is so refreshing to jump in the pool in the morning and after a day of sightseeing.

Anyway, we hope to be able to look after you again soon.

Kind regards
Alf

We (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed in Li River Resort for 2 nights, the experience was amazing for the following reasons for us:
1. Beautiful mountain and review view right in front of the hotel.
2. The room size was very big with creative/unique layout for family stay like us.
3. Large variety of food choices for both Chinese and Western: local beer fish was special, the owner even cooked Spanish food for us.
4.Clean swimming pool with one special small pool for little kids, our kids loved it.
5. Most importly, the owner and staff were very friendly in terms of offering help and giving information about nearby areas to visit.
Very unique and special hotel in China. If you visit Yang Shuo, this is a must to stay place.

We stayed in Li River Resort for 5 nights. We had a superior bed room, which was huge! The bathroom was amazing, and we could feel that much thought was put into all details. Overall the place is very well kept, and in high level.
We ate some meals at the restaurant "Amy on the Li", and the food was really good. There were traditional Chinese dishes as well as Western food. I am a vegetarian, but my husband not at all, and we each had enough choices from the menu. They even make their own bread and yogurt so as to keep the level of food high.
The Chinese staff speaks good English, and are very helpful. The owner of the resort puts a lot of effort to have good, dedicated people working there. We run into some technical difficulties due to heavy rains, and the staff and owner of the resort helped us out.
The pool is very nice and the view from the bedroom windows and all over the resort is awesome.
We traveled in China for three weeks, and this is by far the best place we stayed at. When we left, we felt the best way to describe our stay is "we came as guests, and left as friends!"

Room Tip: All rooms look fine, all facing the river
