The Ritz-Carlton Sanya, Yalong Bay

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Good stay in this 5 star resort. Spectacular views from the lobby and bar on arrival, in-room check-in efficient and convenient, multiple large pools and also beach, many dining options, although the main restaurant is a bit like a zoo for breakfast due to the sheer size of the resort (hint: pay for club access rooms to avoid the masses!). Also long walks to/from rooms if you are assigned out in the garden area, although the upside of this is peace and privacy. Spa very luxurious and good treatments. Especially liked the traditionally-made Sun Tea in the lobby lounge 'Scene' during afternoon and sunset.

The location of the Ritz in Sanya is excellent. It is located on the far West of the bay and is one of the West-most resorts. The advantage of that is that it is located on a more quiet part of the beach, and it is easy to take a long (1 hour or more) walk along the beach without encountering large numbers of people (sunbathing is not as popular in China anyway). The resort is set a bit away from the beach, but has a beach area with umbrellas, chairs and full service higher up in the dine, which gives you privacy and a great view of the beach and the ocean. Service at the resort is all around excellent, from the bar and restaurant personnel to the receptionists and cleaning staff. Although it is a fairly large resort people recognize you and greet you personally. There is a range of activities (most of which we did not do). The restaurants we went to at the resort are outstanding (reviewed elsewhere). Breakfast is marvelous and has an incredible selection of food. We usually treated it as a brunch and didn’t get hungry until the evening. There is never a wait to get seated. We also highly recommend the hotpot buffet from Sunday to Thursday: it may have been the best buffet dinner we ever had. We had a room with Mountain View, which is pretty and also quiet because it is at the back of the hotel. Some guests mentioned that ocean view rooms do not have much of an ocean view because the resort is set a bit further away from the beach. However, it seems that smoking rooms are on the lower floors, we had a non-smoking room on the 5th floor. Ocean view from those rooms is good. All in all the Ritz dots all the i’s as it comes to resorts (as you might expect).

The service is the best I have experienced. All staffs are with sincere smiles and nice greetings. The service at the executive lounge is perfect. Everything is wonderful except the kids pool is too small.

Special thanks to the Duty Manager, Catherine Xian and Customer Service Officer, Carol. They did a great job! Variety choices for buffet breakfast and many kids activities! We truly enjoyed our stay at RC.

It's overall nice, but encountered noise problem. There's a nice beach, but the pool is too cold in winter. The staff are nice and warm, only the facility in the hotel is getting old, especially the shower is very hard to turn on and off!

Every employee is commendable. Upgrade to a sea view room. Room staff saw that we brought a little baby, specifically prepared a lot of pure water so that we can facilitate the baby to milk powder, thank you very much! However, I do not really remember the specific name. In particular, praise GuoGuo of the guest relations department is very warm and thoughtful in all aspects of concern, let us feel very warm in the Ritz.
