Mingshen Golf&Bay Resort Sanya
Ranked #323 of 1,350 Hotels in Sanya
Reviewed 2 April 2012

We were there with our team for the Volvo Ocean Race for about 14 nights. We chose the hotel as it was the closest to the race village and our “scout” said it was ok. It was indeed ok but we had a very hard time as almost none of their staff spoke English and the ones that did weren’t quite fluent either. So, explaining any issue to them was always a major and we had to get our translator to help us every time. This hotel is definitely not for international guests (that don’t speak Chinese). One also has to get used to the fact that any reception staff is not allowed to make decisions on their own, so the decision making even for little things/issues/requests always took longer than expected. We only had breakfast there which was also for non-Chinese good enough. The property itself was nice, with a nice view either over the bay or the golf course. The rooms were clean. They say that they have a spa but it was closed and the gym is very limited (the treadmills are old and don’t work properly and the aircon was not working…). They were happy to open it up outside of their regular hours though. The guys decided to play golf once but it was apparently quite pricey. So, again, there are definitely better suited hotels for international clientele in nicer areas than the Mingshen Jinjiang Golf Hotel.

This is a great place. I left Beijing on the day of the worst air smog/fog readings ever. 300 flights cancelled but I was lucky and after 4 hour delay, departed for Sanya, the Hawaii of the Orient. All employees work very hard to make you feel welcome. Two very good english speakers are Calvin and manager Bob. I have a lady friend in Sanya and I agree with her that this is a great place to get married or have party. Beds are not of the hard variety, and choice is king or two twins.

We have spent 4-5 wonderful days at this place being on a short holiday trip from Shanghai. Even though the location is (by feeling) currently in the middle of nowhere (surrounded by several construction sites) and the taxi driver from the hotel had problems finding it - inside the hotel you will never realize that. And once you know the way it is also located quite centrally (e.g. to go to the beach is only short driving distance; there is also a free periodic bus shuttle).

I have never seen such an impressing lobby before. The rooms are designed in a graceful way and cleaned perfectly. Breakfast in the impressing open-restaurant is very good and offers all types of tastes from fresh prepared eggs, bread, fruits to Chinese cuisine... You can choose either sitting "inside" or on the terrace enjoying the outdoor facilities. Also in the evenings we had a choice of two restaurants - either Western or Chinese kitchen. Menus are also available in English.

The hotel employees are very attentive and you will always find at least one person capable speaking English to help you further.

Also the pool area (with several areas and on different levels) with view on the golf court next door is very cozy. During the day and also in the evening we liked to stay there.

During our stay some "final" fixtures have been done and the SPA area was not yet opened, however this should have been done by now.

Moreover the value for money was more than brilliant.

To sum it up: I can fully recommend this place as a place to stay. We were glad we favored this place over the other "well-known" European/American hotel chains and whenever I will come back to Sanya I will definitely choose this hotel again.

Room Tip: 레지던스는 고층을 쓰시면 전망이 좋습니다. 도착날 바로 레지던스로 이동 할 수 있게 요청을 해야 합니다.
