The hotel is located in a quiet area but close enough to the city center, where you can find a lot of restaurants, but you probabtly won't want to go somewhere else, at least not in the morning because the hotel has the best breakfast ever!! Was very difficult to choose either staying in the terrace of my room which...

Very large resort which you need to take shuttle from one end to another. Especially with the upgrade somehow ended up in the middle of a U shape layout, so kind far from everywhere. The layout isn't convenient for getting in and out of the building because the back side is on the hill. Rooms are nice with outdoor seating....

It's my 1st time staying in intercontinental, but it is truly a most terrible experience ever! I was checked in a dirty room.

Wonderful place. They upgraded us to enjoy the VIP area once we arrived. Excellent facilities. Great food. Very friendly and helpful staff. A safe beach area is marked out (it is rocky) and there's a nice pier to walk out onto. Enjoyable dance show (see photo). Good facilities. Lovely comfortable room with a novel outdoor shower! Can't fault this place.

The hotel grounds and facilities are nice but we encountered two problems: 1. The hotel does very little, if anything, to control guests' behaviour. We saw children urinating into pot plants, people walking into restaurants in just their underwear (not swimmers) or bathrobes, men spitting into the lagoons and constant pushing in and jostling when waiting in line for a...

I stayed at the Intercontinental Sanya for 5 nights for a work event and had an overall very nice experience.
