There's a lot of hype about this hotel on TripAdvisor and other sites, and we weren't disappointed. For someone traveling on an average North American budget, this hotel is a steal. It feels plush and luxurious while maintaining the simplicity and authenticity that you'd be looking for if you're travelling to Yangshuo County.
The location is unbelievable, right on the river, with beautiful karst scenery in the background. It's a bit of a drive to town, but most people come here to enjoy the countryside, and taxis are easily arranged.
Service was great... all of the staff members spoke English, and were helpful and attentive. The food was very good. The menu is quite extensive - don't bother with any of the Western options, the variety of local specialties alone is excellent and we tried many great dishes over the course of 4 nights.
Rooms and beds are very comfortable. We had a family room and an extra bed had to be added to accomodate all 4 of us, so there wasn't that much space, but room size if fine nonetheless.
Yangshuo County is an amazing place if you want to enjoy a side of China that most Western tourists don't get too see. The Mountain Retreat is the perfect home base to enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of this region.
