We have stayed at the intercontinental sanya resort for 4 nights in april. The resort is very big, the staff provide these club electro cars you can call everywhere to take you from one place to another even if it isn't that far.
The main pool is probably the lap pool, which was a little boring. The fancier pool (and bigger) would be the club pool, which flows arond little "islands". There is also a pool near the spa, but it was in construction when we stayed there. The property is very pretty and relaxing, we had an ariel view of the whole resort from the 9th floor. The gardens are beautiful, the kids club has a outdoor playground and a lot of toys indoors and the babies pool has a slide and some water pistols (many broken). They also have a 4.6m deep diving rink, which is normally locked, but the staff can open it for you.
We haven't been in a restaurant because of the extremely high prices eg. A spaghetti bolognese for 130 yuan.
The staff were kind a did their best to help us eg. Unlock the mini bar when we first arrived.
We booked a seaview room, the view was great. The room should be 60qm big, but because of a little foyer with seperate doors to the spacious bathroom and average bedroom, it didn't seem as big. The balcony had a comfy sofa with a ocean view, which would have been really great if it weren't that hot.
Also they have a tasty breakfast buffet, even though its not the biggest
The beach has pretty fine sand, the sea is clear. The pier was relaxing to walk on and to enjoy the sea. The only downside of the water is that it is (despite workers pulling it out of the water) full of scratchy seaweed and rubbish. Little pieces of plastic wrappers would be in the water, among with plastic bags. The sea is really polluted, so if you want to actually see fish, don't get your hopes up.
The hotel provides shuttles busses shared with the neighbouring anatra resort and serenity suites. Also, the location is not so good, eg. Pizzas don't deliver to xiaodonghai or some don't bother driving up to the resort.
Overall our stay there was pleasant and much enjoyed. I wouldn't exactly come again, next time i would stay at yalongbay instead, but i would recommend it to others.
