“PRISON”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

When goverment have a meeting in Yalong bay, stay away from this Hotel. It is in this days more like a prison than a Hotel. Safty controls everywhere, military guys on the beach, in the streets in the garden and on the way to the toilets.
Ask Your booking agent bevor You make a reservation.

Room Tip: Ask for a new renovated room, there are new and old ones.

Dear Mr. Carl M,
Thank you for taking the time to comment regarding your recent experience with us.

I would like to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize for the security inconvenience during your stay with us. Due to the annual BOAO Asia Forum, Yalong Bay was under high security. Their restrictions and security are beyond the control of our hotel but we have been striving to make accommodations for our guests. During the course of the event, we are the only hotel within the vicinity that permitted the use of the beach front during the daytime whilst other hotels were under strict lockdown.

We would like to regain your trust and hope to serve you again in the future.

Resort is located in a quiet area with golf courses and palm trees, offers spacious rooms with balconies and sea views, giving it a relaxing feel. Service was above expectations. You will need to get a car to venture around but the resort has many dining and recreational options. We were there for a business retreat so it was fine. Meeting facilities are good and the stay was enjoyable.

I love this resort! They have beautiful rooms and great amenities. The best part about it is that they have a private beach, complete with thatched umbrellas, surfboard rentals, and the like. There are some businesses close by along the beach with jetski rentals and that sort as well. One downside - the restaurant on site is a tad too expensive and the bill will pile up if it's your only dining option. But that's not really a huge problem. You can always walk down the beach or take a cab to another resort with other restaurants!

Stayed here for a long weekend, most of the 5* hotels are located along a stretch of beach each one after the other. Found this hotel to be a little out dated compared to the rest. There is nowhere to go outside of this little group of hotels, the local town offers nothing in terms of nightlife and restaurants. I think the claim to fame is that this hotel is where the miss world competition took place for a few years. It hasn't been given a facelift since then Better options in the Ritz Carlton or even the Pullman is more modern although it doesn't have direct beach access. The amenities are fine and food was of a decent standard.clientele at the pool had bad habit of spitting etc. not what you expect at an international 5* hotel but i suppose thats what you get in Sanya, not naming any names.

I had the true pleasure of a 5 day stay at this beautiful resort. I travel a lot and I've stayed at more than my share of hotels in the past 30 years and this hotel is among the top 3 for me. Yalong Bay is a beautiful area about 30 minutes from downtown Sanya. The facilities are excellent, the hotel is sparkling clean and well kept. But, far and away what makes this hotel special is it's staff. It's entire staff. These people genuinely enjoy what they do and it shows. It didn't matter what or who you asked, you always got an answer or your request immediately expedited. The buffet was extraordinary and I highly recommend it. The only slight criticism I would have of the hotel is that it's Chinese Restaurant is somewhat overpriced for the quality of the cuisine it serves. The Chinese restaurant next door at The Hilton was much better and a better value. All in all you are just not going to find a better overall resort than this.

Limited food and activity options in the area. Nice beach, but nothing special for a tropical resort. Hotel food and drink is ok, but extremely overpriced. The staff is trying, but lacks training in a service mentality. They have a very difficult time communicating in anything but Chinese. We experienced a typhoon, with interrupted television, power, air conditioning, restaurant facilities, etc. no concessions were offered. They even lacked the flexability to sell wine by the drink when the house brand ran out, even though there were similarly priced wines still in stock (all priced over US$ 50 a bottle). The incompetence of the Sanya aiport is another story.

Room Tip: Above the third floor.
