My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. The resort itself is beautiful, very clean. Dining options are not so good. The hotel offers a buffet breakfast in one resturant, and a buffet dinner in another. Neither are open for any other meals. The food choices at both are alot to be desired, especially if you're a westerner. Breakfast was 118 RMB per person, which had us filling up on cold, hard fried eggs and potatoes. Dinner was 188 RMB per person, and the only food we could tolerate were the chicken scewers. A waste of money. There are no choices for lunch unless you walk 10 minutes down to the beach, where you can get a hot dog, a sandwich, or a plate of fruit. The directory showed 2 lounges and resturants on the property that weren't even open. We found ourselves ordering room service for breakfast and dinner and skipping lunch. The beach is nice, but they don't offer cushions for the hard wooden chairs, so we couldn't stand to sit or lay on them for more than an hour. We ended up taking a taxi to the Sheraton down the road, where they had a buffet set up on the beach each evening for dinner. 503 RMB per person!! Was not nearly worth that, since we're not into chinese food containing mostly fat and bones in their dishes. But, the atmosphere at the Sheraton was beautiful so we spent the next 2 days using their comfortable beach chairs and beautiful pools (300 RMB each per day), but worth it. The best food we had our entire week was lunch at the Sheraton on the beach, we ordered ground beef sliders. Delicious! We were getting so bored that we took a taxi to the Yalong Bay National Resort district, cost us about 75 RMB for the ride, but it is a fun place with lots of resturants and bars, and bands at night. The most entertainment we'd had all week! All in all, we were pleased with the resort and it's beauty, especially for the price. Also, bring your own coffee if you want it in your room. And be patient with the staff, very few speak English!!
