We spent 7 days at this hotel and we pretty happy with the most of the hotel services. The swimming pool and nearby private beach were great, especially of our 6 year old son. The seaside room was great: spacious and clean. the breakfast was ok, nothing spectacular but offered a decent selection to everybody's wishes. The BBQ at the pool at nights was well suited in its price quality mix. The staff was friendly and people in the reception mostly could help in English. The spa was great and offered a fantastic Chinese massage. The downside for the hotel is that it's quite far from the sanya center and therefore one has few options for dinner, except at the hotel. The Chinese restaurant (with Chinese and Western menu) in the resort was however a big disappointment. The staff was not able to communicate in English - this is of course common in china, but the assumingly new staff in The restaurant appeared to be extremely shy and therefore they merely tried to avoid us or neglect our attempt to call for them. This was very frustrating and we ate most of the time outside of the hotel, in the city or at Benny's as advices by others in this site. benny being there or not the cafe restaurant at the beach was a very welcomed change to the hotel offerings. Another thing that surprised us was that most tourists were from Russia, and many restaurant had only a Chinese or Russian menu, that really made our life difficult at times. The final remark of criticism was that rooms had poor antimosquito protection and Mosquitos had a free pass to the rooms while cleaners left the doors open during the cleaning up.
