Reviewed 8 May 2013

We stayed in the hotel with our 19-month boy, for 3 days. On the way to hotel, the texi driver told us this is the best in Xiamen and the former President of the country once stayed here. From the location, the low density and luxuious big garden I can imagine this is the kind of typical state-owned hotel serving VIP guests of local government. In fact, in every major city of China there's a place like this, but unlike all others of the kind, Seaview Resort Xiamen provides the most friendly service and all necessary facilities for family vacation.
The three restaurants, one buffet, one Chinese and one Italian, provides wide variaty of foods at very resonable price. Most important for us, in every restaurant there are always plenty of baby-chair available and we can always find something suitable for our baby to eat.
The interior children playground is big (no less than 300 sqms, I guess) and well equiped (all from "STEP 2"). Our baby loved the place.
The room was big and romantic, with a seaview tub and bacalny.
And best thing for me, as a runner, is the 1.7km circle road around the big hotel garden. I had my best experience and personal record of 10km run on this beatiful and peaceful road.
We had a exellant vacation in the hotel, and I will recommend it to all my friends without a hesitate.

Room Tip: seaview room on 4th floor and above, facing east, where there's no rooms out side the window so...

Am sitting by pool with sun shining on day 3 of our stay here. Had very delicious meal last night in buffet resaurant with free beer for 50pounds for two.So much to choose from...scallops king prawns crab lamb chops and steak.Shame we leave in the morning for Shanghai. Room was lovely with big tub in window overlooking sea...if you are non smoker make sure you ask for non smoking room as we had to move for smell of smoke ..... But we thought all rooms non smoking now..they are not.Well worth a visit as also have beautiful gardens and outdoor pools.Breakfast was also very good as catered for westerner s with fried egg ,bacon and tomatoes..English breakfast tea and toast and jam !!! Highly recommended .oh.and by the way only 4pounds into town,not exactly miles away !!

Room Tip: 4th and5th floors non smoking and better view if you upgrade to seaview as we did.

I enjoyed my room, the personel's kindness and the gardens. This resort is outside Xiamen city, but not too far. You can exploit its isolation for real relax. The room was spacious, with nice balcony. The swimming pool and the gardens are very nice. It's a big resort, potentially hosting a lot of people, like in the rest of Xiamen. Prepare yourself to crowdy breakfast areas.

I have been to this resort twice in the last two years and enjoyed it very much in both times. The location of the resort makes it very quite, along the seashore, and the landscape of the resort is beautiful.

The guest room has a feeling of boutique hotel, a bit like Ritz-Carlton, in my view. It makes you feel relaxed, even if you are on a business meeting. The rooms are 20% larger than a typical hotel, and some have balconies with green views or sea views.

The buffet food offered at the main restaurant is among the best in China, with good seafood, Japanese, and local flavors. This will make eating in hotel an easy decision to make.

I also liked the executive lounge at the 6th floor. It is spacious, has good deco and great view. Even though the wine selection is not good enough (they have a great list but many bottles are out of stock), the overall atmosphere is great.

I heard the swimming pools are great but unfortunately I did not use them in both stays. I you are sport-minded, you can run along the main road outside the hotel, and it's the official route for the beautiful Xiamen Marathon.

I highly recommend this hotel if you come to Xiamen, particularly for family vacation.

I do not know how this hotel could be #1 in Xiamen. It is very far from the city center, there are only 3 over priced restaurant with very average dishes and the service is what you could expect from a Chinese managed hotel.

We went there in winter and most of the facilities were closed. The indoor swimming pool is very nice but there is no steam room nor sauna in the changing room.

The guests room are large but the deco is common and the cleaning could be improved.

Very grand place and very pictureesque location and very nice outlook over the pool and ocean. The airport transfer from the airport was also easy to find and driver friendly. Hotel staff also very obligiing and eager to assist.

I stayed here with our sailing team attending a regatta. Although we didn't get time to use all the facilities. My room had It's own patio with a bath! Very modern, friendly service and willingness to go the extra mile to help. I had ordered a early box breakfast as ny flight was earlier than the breakfast bar opened, as it initially consisted of only bread rolls, a complaint quickly changed it to freash coffee & BLT sandwich! Thanks to the front desk lady & young cook! A great experience, although a little expensive!
