I didn't know what to expect when heading to Sanya for a weekend away from Hong Kong - I have to admit that I might not be back in a hurry. It was a lengthy taxi ride from the airport to the hotel, it didn't help that we got stuck in traffic that didn't move for an hour. Upon arrival...

There were good and bad reviews about this hotel in the internet. But when I arrived, it went beyond my expectation. The hotel is in Haitang Bay, a new resort area that is less crowded than other bays. Breakfast has lots food choices. I stayed in two hotels in Sanya, Renaissance was one and the other was Mangrove Tree Resort...

China is never the first place on my list for a quiet getaway. But I was pleasantly surprised by the Renaissance in Sanya. We stayed for 2 nights over a weekend in March - check-in was swift but the rooms were slightly on the worn side. The room was damp and musky which prompted our balcony doors to be opened....

Some things are great about the hotel - wifi blazing fast, breakfast buffet quality, good Chinese and Western style catering, huge rooms, enormous and impressive pool, managed a small business group meeting well, some of the staff are friendly and helpful.

We stayed at the Renaissance Sanya for five nights during the Chinese New Year holiday period. We had mentally prepared ourselves to be in a zoo given the number of families and vacationers during this period, but Renaissance did a decent job of taking care of its guests.
