Recent guest reviews

8 of us stayed here for one night recently. The hotel needs major renovation, tired carpets, paint peeling from walls, window tint peeling off, etc. the room was a decent size but you can't sting the water, the sign tells you, and there's no bottled water in the room.! No hand soap, no tea or coffee, although there's a kettle? We had a drink in the lobby bar and it was a major task getting the guy behind the bar to understand a gin and tonic.! In all a hotel that needs major $ spent on it, we won't be back, particularly as the Holiday Inn up the road is 10 times better.

we went to holiday inn just one week before X-mas. there was a seminar which cause crowded during the breakfast and lunch time. the food is simple and normal taste. usual they provide noodle, bread, fried rice, boiled egg, fried egg, one vegetaby, one mushroom. there are two juice, mild, soybean milk and yoghurt for drink in the morning. the buffy in noon time is realy not worthy. it's better to eat at the Chinese restaurant for lunch or dinner. and you can select the set meal in the menu, it's more economical and practical. the service in the Chinese restaurant is realy good. there is a fruitshop in the first floor of the hotel, the fruits sold there is good and the price is even cheaper than in supermarket. the food provide in the lobby is expensive and taste not good. the cookies are hard to spit. the coffe provide in the buffy or mini bar is the worst i have ever tried. the room in the north side of the hotel is very noisy. the facilities inside are very old.

I traveled here with my 3 year old daughter for a short vacation at Christmastime. The staff were very helpful. I experienced a number of issues while in Sanya from one of my suitcases being stolen by a taxi drive on the way to the hotel and also a bad burn -- the staff went out of their way to assist me. The pool is very nice with several sections and fun children's inflatable pool toys to borrow. There is a also a fish spa located near the pool. We had a room with a view toward the ocean. The beach is just across the street from the hotel.

This is what you can expect from a standard Holiday inn resort. The location is good, 5 minutes walk from the beach. 15 minutes driving to the airport. Room was a bit old style but comfortable. Service is good and up to standard. Price is cheap comparing to other IHG hotels Overall, a good hotel with good value. Good for budget traveler or someone who needs to catch up a early flight in the morning.

Love it, several outdoor swimming pools with view to the beach, and it's own private beach, view from the rooms to the beach is beautiful. Lots of places to sit outdoor all with view to the beach in different areas and levels. Romantic view on the sunset. People is nice and speak English, service good .

Situated next to the beach this hotel offers many facilities for young and old. The staff are very friendly and although some of the staff don't speak very much English, their willingness to help really makes up for this. Buffet breakfast caters for all nationalities. A barbeque buffet dinner is served outside next to the pool. Not far from the airport so the transfer is very quick.Despite the proximity to the airport the noise is hardly heard.

i couldn't compare it to The Holiday Inn in Thailand. It was completely different. maybe a little bit "tired", needs rennovation. the breakfast was good but everyday the same. it's OK if you stay 1 week. But by the end of 15th day i was dreaming about something else . I liked dinners at the restaurant (all there sets were delicios and not as expensive as we expected). we had dinners in the distric neraby (2 bus stops form the hotel) be careful and controll the personal when they are weighting the sea food. the territory is small but nice . all in all it was OKay but.... leaves much to be desired

I booked the hotel for 3nights when I had travel to China,The airport is near to the hotel and we don't need to waste too much time, To hotel have a lot of children's facilities nice if next time I a child to travelling back there,I like the weather in sanya,To room are nice and clean with great decoration model style,to hotel swimming pool is my favorite place to relax,that’s so amazing,Lobby bar is nice. would be come to sanya again and stay in this hotel . I recommended 100% Good location , impeccable service , food - great! The beach is on the hotel's, many restaurants cafes shop around by.

We spent a week at the resort during the Chinese New Year holiday. The location is beautiful, with easy access to the beach. There were ladies selling strands of pink pearls by the beach, which are a great gift for friends and relatives. My 10-year-old had a blast playing on the beach and meeting kids around his age. The pool at the hotel is beautiful. Since the water was rather cool, not many people were using it. But we all enjoyed sitting by the pool and sipping coconut milk out of a coconut. There is not much to do very near the hotel, but the bus runs right by, and can take you wherever you want to go. The concierge was helpful about telling us which bus to take. We went to see the statue of GuanYin and the End of the Earth. Both places were REALLY busy with people, but that is expected during a public holiday.

I went there with my husband and our 4 month old baby for a holiday, and on the first night we've been robed! Someone break in our room in the middle of the night through the balcony door and stolen our cash and my husband's brand new phone! The tariffing thing that our baby was sleeping in the crib and I can't imagine if something could have happen to her! The man agent ignored us completely, just send police to do the report and than do their job! nobody from the management came to us to apologize and just simply ignored our demand to see head manager. Nobody refund us any money or upgrade our stay! They simply didn't care! We believe it was inside job, as the thief knew exactly where to look, and then on our demand to see the cctv they hotel refused! Their door man was very suspicious and always get nervous around us and he was the one who helped us at the first day to carry the bags. He was very pushing and walking around the room showing us the room, which gave him a lot of time to check what we had! On our stay, I couldn't get any sleep as I was worried for my baby safety since hotel couldn't provide any! PLEASE, FOR THE SAKE OF YOUR CHILDREN DO NOT GO THERE! YOU NEVER KNOW HOW TRAUMATIZING IT CAN BE FOR THEM!
