We stayed here over the New Years holiday. This is the former Crowne Plaza property that is connected to the "mall", main shopping/eatery area in Sanya. I normally prefer to stay at westernized hotels, but the holiday made the prices impossible. So for staying at a Chinese hotel, I thought this place wasn't too bad.
It's great that its right at the mall-- starbucks, pizza hut, grocery, other amenities just steps away. There is a grass area that has a lot of kids stuff to do, but its ridiculously expensive. This hotel does have a very small kids room.
You do have to walk across the street and down a path to the beach, but the hotel has a bar/ice cream eatery and chairs/towels there. Totally hoarded by early morning probably, but at this time of the year, the weather was nice so I had no problem sitting on the sand with a towel sans umbrella with kids.
Breakfast is CHAOTIC but to be honest, I've seen equally chaos at Shangri La's and Ritz' during busy holiday periods. There just is more of it here and pushing to get that one item that may be gone in the 10 seconds it takes you to push yourself there.
They offer a 10 minute free massage at their spa which I took (head and shoulders). The spa area is very nice-- atmosphere has local feel, calming (water around the walkways). Discount on all prices (the spa is located at the edge of the mall).
We go to Sanya often for short breaks. I have other hotels that I prefer, but this is not a bad option at all.
