The room was very clean, with a good sized bathroom. The bathroom was open to the rest of the room, but could be closed off with a curtain. The water pressure in our stand up shower was amazing, almost more than the drain could handel. The room for the toilet was a little small, and a little more see through than I felt confortable with. There were robes and slippers for your use in the closet. The bathtub was located out on the balcony, which was amazing and had a curtain to provide a little privacy. The beds were fluffy but also firm enough for a good nights rest. They had a ethernet cord in the room for laptops, but wireless was only available in the loby area. There was also CNN, HBO, ESPN, and Discovery Channel on TV (and a whole bunch of chinese news channels as well).
There are two swimming pools, one is the central swimming pool with double water slides proving to be fun for everyone. The central swimming pool is very shallow, and there is a pool bar there, but they don't have a bartender there all the time. Also there aren't enough lawn chairs for this large pool area. They is a bathroom behind the water slides for public use but the toilets there are squatters. There isn't a public rinse off area near the pool, one thing I desperately needed after swimming through a patch in the pool where someone had vomited. The other pool is called the rooftop pool, its a bit smaller but I felt it was more enjoyable as there weren't as many people there, and almost no children. There is a "fish kiss pool" there as well, where the little fish swim up to you and eat your dead skin off, there is a charge to use the fishy pool.
There is a private Ocean Sonic Beach front, where you can get served food right to your padded cabana. The beach is flagged off from all the ATV's and random fruit and peal vendors. There is also a buoyed off area for swimming, you need to stay in this swimming area otherwise the life guard will whistle at you. The beach was great, we spent most of our time here. They also have a fresh water rinse off area.
The overall grounds of Ocean Sonic are kept nicely. There was a large selection on the breakfast buffet, we opted mainly for the peal and eat shrimp. There were some western dishes as well. The bacon was a soft more like european bacon, eggs were good, you can ask them the way you want them cooked or they have ones already made. Theres a noodle bar, and a bunch of chinese congee's, and fruits.
When you check in, you must have a Credit Card, they will not take a Chinese bank card.
