We were at the Resort Horizon during the last two weeks of August. We went on the 3 day/ 2 night Beijing trip and the 2 day/1night Hong Kong trip.
Like many before us my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday.
I believe there were 119 British at this hotel during the past fortnight, and in all my years of holidaying abroad I have never before experienced the bond that formed between us as a group.
I should firstly like to thank all the people who have posted reviews about this hotel. I read them all before we left, and found the information they contained invaluable. I knew exactly what to expect and perhaps largely for that reason I was not dissappointed in any way.
So much has already been written that I shall try to avoid duplication and add only fresh news.
The first bit of news will affect those going out on or after 9th September. The much praised Restaurant Manager, Michael, is leaving. His English is excellent and his departure will leave a big gap to be filled. Michael has been teaching his staff English, and they are picking up the language extremely quickly. Only a few weeks ago one or two reviews bemoaned the lack of English speaking staff, but how that has changed!
I have read other reviews about the towel changes, supply of beach towels, flip flops and dressing gowns, etc but no-one has yet mentioned that a plug in mosquito killer is provided and the blue tablet is replaced each night; there is even one plug point in each room that will accept a British plug. Save space and luggage weight here.
All inclusive is a new concept to the Chinese, and the Resort Horizon is the only hotel on Hainan Island to take on the challenge. Beer, water, red & white wine flowed freely enough. I accept that gin & tonic drinkers, etc had to pay extra, but considering the cost of the whole holiday I still think it was very good value for money.
I have no hesitation in recommending China, and in particular this hotel, to anyone considering booking this holiday.
