“Great location, food not so great”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

So the location right on the beach is quite nice and the rooms are clean, sizeable and well kept. Good value in that department. The breakfast buffet is 90% Chinese and the remaining 10% is barely passable. Staff is friendly but English is hard to come by on this island in general.

We stayed at the Days Inn for a long weekend. After arriving at Dajiao Bay it took a little time to get direction to Days Inn which is located away from the Main Street and Beach up and over the main hill towards the Silk Road Maritime Museum. Check in was the usual drama with minimal English spoken by the staff so the hotel struggled to find our booking (always check if the booking was made in your Christian name). We had paid for 2 rooms with sea views and the first room was brilliant. Room 858 on the 8th floor near the lift (which I Hate) offered a large room with the bed facing the balcony and sea. The balcony had a separate bath which seemed weird? The A/C was hit and miss but the king size bed was large and comfortable. The 2nd room 632 on the 6th floor had a sea view but was not as well arranged. The A/C again did not function that well at night.
The pool although clean does appear greenish and it's difficult to get service at anytime during our stay. Although the hotel advertised a gym and roof top bar neither where open even though the hotel had been open for 18 months. Breakfast is average and typically Chinese. Get down early before the bus brigade arrive and eat like a horde of locust devouring everything in sight.
The position of the hotel is good with direct access to the beach but signs stipulate not to swim in the sea. The beach is littered with rubbish a sad state for such a lovely beach. The hotel is located next to the Silk Road Maritime Museum but the location to town requires a car ride or good walk to reach restaurants and the main stripe of Dajiao as we found little entertainment in the hotel at night. Based upon the price paid (HKD$1600/room per night) it does seem quite expensive. We suggest booking directly if you can as the standard room rate for a Sea View Room is HKD$1450/night. Alternately the new Crowne Plaza hotel will open in August 2013 maybe try this.

Room Tip: Take a room with a Sea View you won't be disappointed

Currently, probably the newest hotel in town. Nice and big , great sea view location and managed by Days Inn. Claims to be a Chinese 5 star hotel but carries the Days Inn brand. Rooms are huge, beds are comfortable but building quality is not great as certain finishings are already showing their wear within such a short time. Service is so so. Don't think staff are adequately trained. Breakfast is very mediocre. The pool looks nice and big but does not seem to be properly maintain either - water is greenish. A word of advice, please make sure you don't lose your room access cards. They charge rmb 30 for every missing card - apparently cost of replacement is huge. Seems to be a thing with Chinese owned hotels. A Crowne Plaza is coming up just down the road. Hopefully that will some competition soon. Rates for this place during high season is as expensive as international 5 star hotel in Guangzhou e.g. Grand Hyatt.

Days Hotel and Suites, Hailing Island, Yangjiang, China
We are not five star hotel people unless of course someone invites us and pays then it is hard to say no. Typical 4/5 star operation. It does meet international standards at least in our estimation. We had no serious problems with the hotel or its staff in the three nights we stayed. It is a little out of the town of Zapo but taxi service and a bus can take you into this small fishing town.
The hotel is located on the beach right next the Marine Silk Road Museum of Guangdong. Nice operation and the architecture will stir some emotions you will either like or hate it. More on the museum later. There is also a few shops and a small night club but best do your shopping in town it is a bit cheaper.
The beach is quite nice with fine sand. The hotel makes it a bit difficult to get there with a small sea wall and no direct access. The sign just off the property makes it quite clear they are not responsible for the beach it is the property of the People’s Government so use at your own risk. No sign of life guards and the local authority does not clean up as often as they could. Still not bad. There can be quite a surf and we expect rip tides on high wind days. It is rather sad that a large chain like this one could not take on the responsibility of cleaning and supervising the beach in front of the hotel and part of their proclaimed “social/environmental” responsibility. The areas is poor the local authorities struggle to make ends meet.
Surfing is possible in some areas but bring your own board … apparently. The hotel itself offers a swimming pool divided into three sections. No sign of a life guard however and we never actually saw anyone use it. Besides our conference, not many people there as I said end of season.
The food was indifferent but adequate. There are four restaurant including a mixed Western/Chinese buffet and a coffee shop. As a fishing port and commercial aqua-culture area there is no shortage of sea food of all types … enjoy. We did not try any of the local restaurants … there were plenty of them!
The sadest part of the stay was seeing the massive destruction of what was a pretty 12 km beach. Developers have been allowed to move in and within two years it will be wall to wall resort towns back by a four lane highway. The only thing missing will be a casino.
Still a pleasant place to stay if you don’t mind paying.
Note: the hotel website was badly out of date at the time of our visit … a bit sloppy for a major chain.

Room Tip: Ocean view of course!
