Very nice rooms with bathtub with a "view". When you sit in the tub you can see the marvelous sea and follow the view. And this from pretty much every room.
Rates are reasonable considering that Yantai is a tier 3 city, but there are much more pricier choices in Yantai. Breakfast is Chinese style, but have some western stuff. Service is very good, English capabilities are evident, so western travelers are not totally lost. Very good alternative to the international chains that are 30 % more expensive.

Room Tip: Choose rooms with tub at the window.

This is a surprisingly good hotel. The position is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Yantai, but well worth it. The rooms are excellent (same standard as Hyatt in my opinion) with a super shower and great decoration and very modern... staff are especially friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant is also very good. Very modern, clean and well designed throughout and great value.. On my return to the room I found a nicely worded note with a bunch of complimentary fresh fruit, a piece of cake and a drink. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Yantai.. 5+ stars!

Room Tip: All rooms look good... one side has sea views

I stayed at the Buena Vista Gulf hotel for 2 nights in early June 2010. It is quite a new hotel and is very nice - rooms are well designed and while not huge, are quite 'roomy'. I used the hotel fitness centre (on the top floor) which was small, but had one of everything and is clearly not used a great deal - which was fine with me!
I ate in the restaurant, and the food was good - although I am vegetarian, which is often a bit tricky in China, so my menu choices were very limited. Staff were all helpful, especially Lucky, who helped me choose what to order from the menu. Free internet!

A nice hotel on a little hill with a nice view on the sea (if no fog or smog is in the way like it was when I was there). The hotel is build new with some construction in front of the hotel. But these constructions are hand made (no machines) so no bigger disturbances due to noise. Nice furniture looks very good today. But might look not as good as now in one or two year’s time. Very friendly and helpful stuff with good English knowledge.

Stayed here for three nights. Excellent four star hotel with wonderful breakfast buffet. Free very fast internet connection and wonderful service. The place is new and it is locate right on the coast overlooking the sea. You can walk down from the hotel as it is perched on a knoll and then stroll along the walkway next to the sea. Great choice if you are doing business in Yantai.

We spend the Easter weekend in one of the suites, which actually is not a real suite, but a sitting and work area separated from the bed and the big bathtub. The two small balconies are in the "bedroom area", overlooking the sea. Everything is nicely designed, enough light, enough power outlets, only the mini bar could be filled better, breakfast buffet has good variety.
The staff is VERY friendly and helpful and supportive in every way.
Only downside is the location: 6km south of the inner city and no direct access to the beach. But this gives you a quiet place to relax.
