“Good room, but overpriced and no good location”
Reviewed 9 March 2010

Large, clean room. Large, well designed bathroom (but all faucets were broken). Big bed, good matress, nice linen. Free internet. Bland dull breakfast. This is a hotel for asian guests; it has no swimming-pool, and it is not situated by the beach (it has a shuttle-service 2x/h to the beach). The hotel is out of walking distance from Sanya, so you will need taxi for everything unless you bring your own car. I found the hotel substantially overpriced compared with other resorts in Asia. Pay cash - strange handling of credit cards, and bring a strong mosquito-repellant.

They had issues checking us in with our orbitz reservation, but other than that, the service was very smooth.

The room had great features, however it smelled like smoke and the carpet needed to be replaced. It was just stained. They had a beach bag with towels and sandels for you.

The breakfast was good. You should try the bacon. There were a lot of dining options near by which was nice compared to other areas in Sanya.

They let us check in early and the concierge was very helpful. Overall it was a great value, but we wish there was a pool. The hotel is also not on the beach.

The Baohong hotel is in the Dadonghai beach area.. that is near the city, compared to the others, which are a long way away. the resort hotels, like the marriott, are very nice, we went there, spent the day on there beach, sat in there pool, and in their jacuzi, but theres nothing else to do or go to, apart from hop from resort to resort.. The Baohong is about 3 years old, in a nice victorian theme. has as huge lobby, with a grand piano that has a lady playing most nights.
we stayed in the deluxe king room, on the 15th floor. actually only floor 12, as they think its unlucky to have a 4, 13, or 14th floor.
rooms are nice, failrly clean, but also well priced. about $115 aud per night, including breakfast.
breakfast is buffet, is pretty good as well, being 1/2 chinese style, half west.
Hotel is about 10 minutes walk to the beach, or you can get a golf cart ride there for free from the hotel every 30 minutes or so.
its close to lots of restaurants, shops , but doesnt have a pool. doesnt matter, the intime resort is next to the beach, between the Baohong, and the beach, so we spent some time in their pool.
at check in , you need to leave a deposit, ours was 3000 rmb on my credit card, even though room was all paid in advance, and is credited back when you leave.
its about 30 minutes from the airport by taxi, which will cost you 50 rmb, and about 5 mins from town, about 10 rmb by taxi.
overall,, very good for the price.. i would say, 4 star..

  • Liked — was close to the beach
  • Disliked — games room (snooker, 8 ball) isnt free

Nice Hotel, clean comfortable rooms ,close to beach but that's where it ends.
Very poorly trained staff who do not speak English even in key areas.
i.e. Breakfast tables left uncleared of plates and food scraps, wait 15 minutes for coffee at breakfast, in restaurants and bars white wine and beer served warm when complained beer and wine placed in ice bucket, but when served by waiter water from ice bucket dribbled off bottle over table and meal.
After 3 complaints about airconditioning not working in room where told to open the window.
When checking in not able to swipe open credit card voucher they insist on an amount of 2000RMB being inserted on voucher which, when you spend that amount in the hotel they knock on your room door and ask you to pay the account until you are in credit again to the amount of 2000RMB otherwise they will not restock the mini bar or allow you to charge anything to your room,
I have never experienced this mistrust anywhere else in the world including other parts of China and what makes life difficult is they will only change $100 per room per day at the front desk currency exchange which requires a trip into town to a bank taking up to an hour.
A lot of the facilities have been closed down or not available , most of the shops are empty the mini brewery has closed the hairdresser is no longer in the beauty parlour.
Beware of the seafood restaurant very expensive even by Australian and European standards, 5 times dearer than restaurants just down the road from the Hotel.
Would I recomend this hotel definitely not, however they do seem to cater for the Russian market.
This is an honest account of my stay at this hotel.

  • Liked — room,cleanliness,
  • Disliked — service or rather lack thereof. This is no longer a Redezvous Hotel.
