The hotel is at the end of the Road so more quiet and their own beach is not crowded (that is good). Very nice swimming pool though not all parts of the pool area were open. The breakfast did not have many choice of foods and it will be nice if a better lobby lounge is available. overall is still...

This is not a hotel for westerners. The hotel staff are great BUT it is just that they lack good training and UPPER MANAGEMENT is to blame. They simply have not put any effort in giving their staff good training to deal with their guests. Also because of the price, the hotel attracts a lot of locals and in itself...

The location is not good, very towards to the end of the road, you need a taxi to drive out. There is no proper restaurant or convenient store nearby. Luckily, the food in the hotel is not ridiculously pricy, actually the quality was quite good, we had our whole meals settled in the hotel. The beach was just fine, sea...

The hotel has been built since my last two trips to Yalong Bay. Due to the price and itinerary, I did not have a chance to stay. Finally, I got a chance to stay in Holiday Inn in the third trip. The hotel is an ordinary but nice one, with neither big surprise nor disappointment. The room I booked has...

Only hung out there for a day--easy half hour two RMB bus ride from Sanya on #15. Had pleasant lunch--great seafood pizza. Good friendly staff. Nice sandy beach. One of the best deals along Yalong Bay--but isolated. Many small pools and lots of kiddie pool toys.

That’s a new hotel in Sanya. Top floors are under construction still. Some capacities like swimming pool are not in full operation and usage. But, all of constructions are in top-modern design and brand new. So, that is very good to live and get a relax in brand-new apartments. Front view to SouthChinaSea. Good coking, friendly staff. There is no...
