5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Tried to stick a couple in a room with 2 twin beds, did not ask. Typical China. Breakfast was really bad for a western hotel chain in China, but it was "free". Swimming pool was decent and beach scene was not bad (water is a little dirty on Sanya Bay), but a lot of locals trying to sell you fruit and jewelry non-stop. Rooms smelled moldy, both did after we changed. Not very clean, not very comfy. Bad signage around resort... Guess this is what you get at a HoJo after all.

Nipped over from mainland China, to get some blue sky and fresh air in the most luxurious of Resorts. We where not disappointed! Staff is helpful and friendly, even though check-in could be more efficient affair, but not bad at all by Chinese standards. Lush well appointed clean room to top standard. Resort is very well equipped too with several swimming pools and a private Beach stretch. When there, it's not necessary to go anywhere else for food and drink. Good combined styles buffet breakfast. Children friendly with even a creche facility. Would go back again.

The hotel itself is good, but the beach is not as clean as the yalongwan. However, there's lots of water sport activities and they are much cheaper than other beaches. There are constructions next to the hotel.

The location and facilities are outstanding. The staff is not very motivated and getting a drink at the bar or pool will take way more time than it should. We were told breakfast was not free by an employee who didn't bother to check if that was actually true. For this price I dont plan to go back.
