“Nothing special”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

please note: I only went to the hotspring not the hotel.

I was quite disappointed with this place. At first sight it looks good, but when you look closer you can see the paintwork needs an update, the showers in the men locker do not look clean, and the water in the pools also does not look clean. Especially the big swimming pools really need some updating, it looks old and dirty. And after our visit my wife and i both had problems with our eyes, mine are getting better now, but my eyes were really dry and irritated. Besides that there are too many children and the spa is build against a hill so for each pool you need to clime some stairs. Now that i am writing this review i see it is owned by Best Western, well it is really below western standards. Like said: at first sight it looks nice, but when you look better you see too many flaws. I normally go to Riyuegu spring, but that one is more expensive, but now I understand why. Next time you can find me in Riyuegu again.

We stayed here for just 1 night while visiting Xiamen. I really wish we had more time here to enjoy the amenities. It is definitely a bit far from town, so be prepared for some long drives if you're here to see the tourist sites.

The room is big and clean, with a nice big bathroom and even plenty of closet space. Our room also had its very own hot spring soaking tub on the balcony. Its a great feature and you're able to soak in the privacy of your own room. Its a really big tub and takes quite a while to fill, so definite start the water way before you plan to soak.

One downside of the room is that there is no natural light. Since there is a tub, they've added coverings on the balcony, so you can't see anything outside.

Something that made the hotel kind of confusing is the flooring. The hotel is built on the side of a hill, so even though you drive up to the lobby, the lobby is actually the top floor of the hotel. So when you get in the elevator, you go down into your room.

We had a great time here even though it was just one night. Maybe one day we'll have a chance to return and really enjoy the hot springs.

I believe it is a trustworthy hotel because they own a 4A National Tourist Attraction by China National Tourist Attractions Quality Evaluation Committee. The environment around the hotel and the hotel rooms are comfortable. A lot of facilities can be found in this hotel, such as snooker, gym, swimming pool and mini golf. The location is quite far from the city for me and nothing around the hotel area. If you need a supper, you can only ask for room service. I enjoy the hotspring in room a lot as for me it's more privacy. Only problem i have is the water leaking into the restroom from the shower area. But the housekeeping is very efficient to come and clean up for us.

I was with my family on this Xiamen tour and spent the last two nights at this hotel. The hotel has a hot spring theme park which requires an admission fee of about rmb120. The park is huge with many hot spring pool with different functions for our body. The park was very clean and there were staff around to offer drinks to the guests.
Back to the hotel room, each room is equipped with a private hot spring pool inside. A burner and aroma therapy oil and incense burner is given to make the environment even more cozy and relaxing.
Breakfast is good with huge selection of local produce and international spread.
It is a very good experience for family or couple who wants to enjoy hot spring in a place which is 40 mins away from the city.

Spent 3 nights here. Not the place if you want to be in the action of city life but perfect for relaxation and serenity. Room is extremely spacious with your own private spa and tube in music. This is a great feature - love it. Enjoyed soaking in different hot springs and the herbal drinks served by ladies who come by every so often.Very impressed with the attendant in the lady changing room who made sure I put on the non-slip footwear before going out to the hot spring areas. Breakfast buffet is sufficient with made-to-order noodle soup. Recommend management to find ways to get rid of the musty and moldy smell in the room which is quite common among hotel rooms in China.

We really enjoyed our stay here, even if only one night! The rooms are clean and spacious, each room has a private bath with hot spring water, ensuring a totally relaxing time!
We enjoyed the outdoor swimming pool during the afternoon, and then we went to hotsprings in the evening… The hotspring pools are very comfortable, clean and well mantained.
Service at the hotel was excellent, all staff is very friendly and helpful!

I stayed here for business but this place would be a fantastic place for couples. I absolutely loved the level of detail at this hotel. My room came with a hot spring tub which was absolutely awesome and very private. The room was very nice and cozy. It was a big room but I wish they had drawers to put your cloth in.

The bathroom is also fantastic and very clean.

I have to say this is my favorite hotel in all of Xiamen. It's so secluded but just beautiful inside and you can do some walking or jogging around the facility since its very nice and scenic.

The buffet isn't anything special, and very small in my opinion.
