We really enjoyed our stay here, a small quite hotel that is only about a ten minute drive from the city. Set alongside a river with big gardens and a nice relaxing outdoor eating area. The kids enjoyed a dip in the pool to cool off after a long day on the boat. The rooms a quite nice and spacious, with the family room that we had book including a bunk bed for the kids.
Nice and modern inside, with full wifi services in the room.
The power just happened to go out before dinner so the dinner choices were limited until it got back online, but the food they served was as well good.
Overall a great pick for those who like small hotels instead of the big industrial hotels in the city.

Rooms are spacious with separate sitting area (in my room this was a enclosed balcony), and separate powder room with adjoining shower with rain shower shower head. Water pressure and temperture where both very good. Staff are friendly and attentive, and all the ones I interacted with had good English. Have free bicycles and numerous bike trails nearby.

During our trip to Guilin/Yangshuo we first had the intention to choose the Shangri-La Hotel in Guilin as our home base and to explore the area with our tour guide (Lilly Lu - see separate TripAdvisor entry) from there. But Lilly Lu said no. She recommended to stay the first and last night at Shangri-La and the days in between at Moondance Boutique Resort in Yangshuo. We did as told and did not regret this decision for as second:
Moondance is not a 5 star hotel but a fantastic retreat with lots of atmosphere owned by a Dutch man. We stayed at the Starry Night Suite which is spacious and equipped with everything you need and has a fantastic balcony. Staff (including owner) is extremely friendly and helpful. Food is very good. There is no breakfast buffet but you can get almost what you want - which is a great start in a perfect day.
Moondance is the ideal place to explore the region because you feel at home (what do you want more?) and due to the fact that there is a mix between Western and Chinese guests you get some kind of "local" feeling. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms - especially the Starry Night Suite!

I live and work in Shanghai and travel around all of China staying in top class hotels. But this remains my absolute favourite in all of China due to its simple elegance, the beautiful surroundings and the warmth and helpfulness of its staff. This is my second stay here and there will be many more. In addition to stylish, comfortable rooms, a swimming pool and nice gardens, the hotel prepares excellent Chinese food with many dishes that overseas travellers would find very accessible.

It turns out that Yangshuo is actually quite a big place, a dusty and bustling city with a LOT of tourists. So the Moondance, a few miles out of the city, wasa breath of fresh air. It had incredible views and solid food. And fantastic, helpful staff.
