“Nice hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Nice and large rooms
Nice swimming pool
English is not the official language of hotel staff and sometimes it was difficult to communicate.
But I will recommend this hotel for a professional stay and not a private

Hi Florent B,

Thank you for the great score on Tripadvisor. Indeed, English speaking may not be most readily available in most secondary cities in China. Nonetheless, we have some foreign guest relations officers and managers are ready to assist. I'm glad that you've found our resort more business friendly. In fact, the resort is gaining reputation this year as a family and couple getaway treat. We look forward to serving you again soon again.

Best Regards,
Henry Tay

This was the first time my better half had stopped here and she was overwhelmed with the luxurious feel and beautiful surroundings.
A short stroll down the road, or better still hire a bike from the hotel and you can ride for miles around Donguan park and even feed the hundreds of Koi carp the length of your arm in size!
A pool view room gives you a James Bond style backdrop of the night skyline at dusk.
There are many peacocks wandering the grounds which are beautiful.
This hotel's only drawback is that it is a ten minute taxi ride out of town. But at £2 tops for a taxi - who cares!

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

Hi NJames2000,

Wonderful to learn that you have had an enjoyable stay with us. I particularly enjoy the peacocks roaming around freely in the garden, and sometime at the entrance of the resort. Five new born peacock babies this year before summer. Generation after generation, they have been here for years to grace the resort. Sofitel Royal Lagoon is considered a city resort, just 10mins from the city. It's the Oasis of Dongguan if you would agree with me.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
Henry Tay

Royal has been my first home when I arrived to China, many years ago.
I feel it very comfortable, clean and quiet.
Staff was always kind and helpful.
Years passing, I happened to stay there sometimes and it always kept the same quality standard as my first impression.
The only negativd point is the, almost, impossibility to get a taxi.

It’s wonderful to have many dedicated support of Sofitel DG Royal Lagoon like yourself. As the new general manager here, I’m reviewing your comment further with my team to see the taxi situation of the city. Meantime, our concierge could provide a transportation service if so necessary to get hotel guests from resort to point A at a very reasonable cost. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Nice atmosphere and v good services.
Plat. Member but as usual in china, doesn't offered a lot of privileges even top tier level.
Good for relax or for a weekend. Another Sofitel beside this hotel actually similar but cheaper... Not sure why.

I’m pleased to learn about your positive experience with Sofitel Royal Lagoon Dongguan! Indeed, it’s a great getaway to relax after a week of hard work. I’m glad that you feel the same. The other Sofitel DG Golf Resort has only 133 well-appointed guestrooms. Some guests really love the guestrooms there, but Royal Lagoon has more facilities to offer as a whole. Nonetheless, both resorts are well connected by shuttles. Hopefully, you would find at least one of them closer to your heart.

....amazing value for money, comfort and service form Sofitel Dongguan (recommend joining Le Club Accorhotels - good discounts!). My 3rd stay here and certainly won't be my last. Despite the hotel being fantastc on its own merits anyway, I especially recommend it to anyone travelling to Dongguan for business or lesuire who want away from the hotels with the large KTV's....

Hi Richard,

I’m most delighted to have you back with us and learn that you had a wonderful time again! Thank you for the full score. Your kind compliments are great encouragement to my team. I can’t agree with you more that no matter it’s for business or leisure, many travellers would opt for our resort. Not only for the beautiful ambience but also safety especially for female travelers as we've never had those KTVs in our core business. As the relatively new General Manager here, I'm working closely with my team to fine tuning our products and services in hope the small touches would delight you further.

We look forward to serving you again in the near future.

Sincerely,
Henry Tay

When we are in Dongguan either on business or holidays, we always stay here (after having mixed results with other local hotels) & have never had even the slightest issue, it's always immaculately clean, accommodation if first class, food is amazing, 2 swimming pools the outdoor one is huge, all the staff are extremely accommodating & will always treat you with the upmost respect & a smile. The local golf courses are also fantastic & a great escape for when my wife & daughters want to pop into town to do some shopping, (I recommend you use either your own driver or the hotel booked taxis) over all this hotel offers fantastic service in every department, it's also fantastic value & after coming here regularly for nearly 5 years I would highly recommend this establishment.

Room Tip: As in every hotel, you'll always get better service by asking the staff members name & using...
