Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can not recommend Villa Verde highly enough for travel in this area of Yunnan. I have been in Dali several times and also travelled extensively throughout Yunnan and Villa Verde will offer you the warmest welcome as well as wonderful opportunities to experience local culture. The location is a Dream, with fantastic lake-side views of Erhai. The food is fresh, home-cooked and made from delicious local ingredients. Most importantly you will have access to Sunny who is co-owner of the hotel and herself a member of the Baizu local community. As soon as you travel with her you find out that she knows everybody and everything about the local area and beyond. Balancing that her husband Gerard is from Holland but has lived in Dali for many years. Together they make the perfect hosts for rewarding travel in this beautiful part of Yunnan.

A cosy new built small hotel with European influences like architecture and cleanliness! The owners are devoted people as well as their team. They served us a wonderful breakfast and a lovely diner. Lots to see and to do in the environment.

During our tour of west and south China we stay two nights in this beautifull hotel. It was a friendly and warm welcome by Gerard en Sanny and they were very helpfull. We get a very nice and clean room with a beautiful view of the lake and the mountains. Because we unfortunately had only one day they gave directly appropriate tips so we could choose what we want to do the next day. We like to walk so they take us for a walk along the lake. After that we would like to see a beautiful village so they took us to a village with a lot of Bai people in their beautiful costumes. If you go to China Yunnan I can highly recommend this beautiful and clean hotel with friendly and helpful people.

Great location in a quiet rural spot near the lake and with mountain views as well. Really nice rooms. Everything works. Everything is so clean. Great lunch and dinner - how about smoked goose. Great breakfast - how about bacon pancakes with syrup. Bar is a cosy place with good assortment of drinks. Ideal place to relax. Ideal base to explore the Dali region, that hospitable owners Sunny and Gerard know so well. They will arrange great tours for you. Or they will give you suggestions and tell you where and how to go if you want to do it by yourself. Oh, and I haven't mentioned yet the friendly staff. Great all around.

We and our group came here through a day trip and didn't know what to expect before. We were welcomed by Gerard and Sunny and their team and felt "at home" at once. Service and quality here is definitely was above the normal level here. Villa Verde offers great, well-maintened (often a problem in China) rooms. All with balcony or terrace seating. The food we got there was among the best during my 3,5 week trip through Yunnan, Sichuan and Hongkong - both Western and local dishes were served. They also have very good coffee (also not everywhere to be found) and a great bar with local and Western drinks. I recommend this place as base to explore the Greater Dali area or to relax after a hiking tour in Shangri-La. Sunny (the host) has abundant knowledge as a guide and can help planning tours and will answer all your questions. As I said our stay here was a real highlight!

On our recent trip in Yunnan we stayed near Dali at this hotel. It's a great location very near to Erhai lake. If you're looking for a relaxed stay this is it. The people are both very friendly and extremely helpful. The rooms are very clean and well taken care of. They have a nice restaurant and a bar. Going to Dali is very easy. Highly recommended!

During our trip we had Sunny as our tourguide,showing us Shaxi and Baoxing temple and she brought us at the precious place at Villa Verde ! Sunny and Gerard built this beautiful hotel only 2 ago and it was for us a great place to enjoy the views from the terrace,watching the ricefields (just harvest time) the lake and the mountains. The climate was very pleasant.Specially after the umitidy from the other visited places. Gerard and Sunny were very kind,preparing breakfast and dinner and showing us around at their beautiful village! Due to a blackout of the electricity,they brought us to the nearest village where we had a great cinese dinner! Without the advise of them we couldnot have eaten so good. The next day on our way to Kunming,they brought us to Dali showing us the beautifull shoppingarea where a lot of Chinese tourists were enjoying as well their free time. I advise everybody to go to Villa Verde and enjoy all the aspects here. p.s. Forgot to tell that they work together with a very good driver.Mr. Yan who brought us safely from Lijiang to Kunming,

Dear Jacqluc123, Thank you for writing your beautiful review. We do our very best for every guest to make them feel at home. The rice is harvested, the farmers turned the fields and now planting garlic, beans, vegetables and on. Around Villa Verde it's always green. Our driver is one of the best in China, but we will tell him your appreciation. Thank you again and we hope to see you again.
