The place obviously has deterriorated since it was opne for the Asia Forum. The gardens and hot springs need much more attention. The exteriors is peeling and rusty.
Club lounge has nothing to offer and works on a dunious schedule. Problematic check in becasue of failing connection to get the American express card though. Smoking permiates most eating areas and smoke free environement is of no cencern to the hotel. Advertised French amenities are just not there. No attention to detail whatsoever.
This is a good place for large Chinese groups traveling on a deeply discounted rates to attend a meeting. Overall, this is the Soviet Union meeting Communist China French style. Stay away!

Beautiful hotel. Friendly staff with limited English. Nice pool but no beach. The hotel is very isolated, plan on eating every meal there (which isnt overly excited). Would stay here again if I had to go to Boao. But I wouldnt plan another trip to Boao.

this hotels is not resort hotel, however it offers hot spring, spa and other leisure activities. We've booked it initially for 4 days, but want to check out and look for something else tomorrow.

This elegant hotel is hard to fault: beautiful location, tasteful public rooms, fine restaurants and so on. Having passed through a year before, one was eager to stay a few nights, It is, one must admit, a 'business hotel' mostly but there are sights to see, walks around the Lake and hot pools galore. The food is excellent and the service fine. Indeed, the front- desk are as good as they come!

On the down-side, there are too many business types and it is not really appropriate for a vacation or romantic weekend, at least not in Winter when it is chilly in the middle of the Island of Hainan, as there is no heating in the rooms. One was able to survive with the free 'wi-fi' but...

Maybe I will come by again when I am in the vicinity but a couple of nights is really enough!

This hotel is just beautiful and very clean. The staff is friendly and speak good english. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The breakfast included is outstanding with just about every type of Asian and Western breakfast item you can imagine. The made-to-order eggs were great! Since we were traveling with small children we were not able to go to the Habana Club in the hotel, but did stop by and take a look. It appeared to be a fun place for Latin dancing with live music. The only drawback for our family was the option for room type. There were no rooms with two double beds. There version of double beds are two single size beds. We ended up with a king room. Our two year old slept with us since the bed was big enough, and we fashioned a small bed for our five year old from the sitting chair/ottoman and extra bedding. We did have two other members in our group and were able to have two rooms next to each other, so that was very helpful. Overall this is a fantastic hotel for the price and highly recommended.

WE stayed in the best suite I have ever been in, I was speechless when we walked in and I don't think anything else will live up to the accommodation in this hotel. The location was great- right away from everything. Beautifully laid out pool and fantastic food. Great place to get away from it all.
