“Good hotel in a Bad location”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

I spent the golden week with my wife playing golf in Yantai and stayed in this hotel. Why Yantai to begin with...don't ask. Anyway, good that not many people will think of Yantai for golden week, so kinda quiet compare to the rest of China at the time.

Good
The hotel facilities are very new, clean and decent. The lobby, cafe, room are all properly maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is pretty good with great variety of choices.

Bad
The location is so far out from the restaurants, town, airport, and golf course...all you have is the beach that you can't swim in, cos the water is cold and YELLOW. To make thing worse, if you don't drive like me, there is no cab in rush hours like dinner time. I waited 30 mins for 10 min ride to the restaurant nearby for dinner.

Ugly
There was a guy brought a LIVE MONKEY...yes, a bloody monkey in the breakfast buffet like a pet dog. WTF...why would you let anyone bring a MONKEY to your hotel...and restaurant at any given time !!????

I don't think I will go back to Yantai and stay in this hotel...ever.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Sheraton Yantai Golden Beach Resort and taking your time to give us your valuable feedback. It is delightful to know that you have enjoyed your holiday time here in Yantai.

Being one of the most fascinating coastal destinations in northern China, Yantai is packed with beautiful food and wines, fun water-based activities and tourism attractions such as the Golden Beach, 37 Degree Dream Sea water park, Cishan Hot Spring and Penglai Pavilion. Located in a national AAAA level scenic area, the Sheraton Yantai resort is only a 30-40 minutes’ drive from downtown and Laishan Airport, it borders the gorgeous Golden Beach and houses 350 spacious and relaxing rooms and suites, all with stunning sea view.

As for the monkey, I assure you that no pet animals are allowed at our resort at any time. Unfortunately, the guest has smuggled the money into the resort in his jacket. When we saw the pet in the restaurant we immediately asked the guest to leave the restaurant and also check out of the resort. Hope this did not influence the rest of your stay. Please do not hesitate to contact me on 0535-6119999 if you would like to further discuss this matter. I look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit!

Sheraton Yantai Golden Beach Hotel has got an excellent location opposite to the sea beach.
Excellent place to stay for tourists as they can walk to the beach and spend good time there.
The break fast has good variety served and the good hi speed internet is available (for a price).
The only one thing which made me no rate the overall stay excellent is that I did not find the temperature of the hotel comfortable. The lobby feels warm, rather hot and temperature is adjusted to 26-27 Degree Celsius. Also the room temperature even after keeping it to a low of 18 degree did not go less than 24 till the morning.

Room Tip: Beach facing gives an excellent view

For biz trip. Very new. The service is good. The hardware is also good. Neat room, nice swim pool and gym. Feel good to run along the beach in the morning. The food is also good, both the breakfast and the dishes in Chinese restraunt.
The disadvantage is a bit far away from the downtown, take some time from the hotel to our customer office in Zifu district.

Room Tip: Some rooms have better sea view. Suggest to ask the reception desk.

The bar atmosphere is very appealing with an excellent band and good service. It's a good way to spend the evening before retiring for the night. The only concern I think is the smoking that pollutes the air sometimes - some guests seem to have no concern for others. They should be promptly asked to move to a smoking area. Also avoid walking towards the nearby GM plant with its noxious smells! Otherwise, a lovely hotel in a nice beach location.

I had a late arrival and early departure due to my travel schedule at this property, but found everything to be impeccable. Checkin was friendly, fast and pleasant. The room was clean, comfortable and inviting. Despite the late hour the tub was so lovely I made a pot of tea and took a long soak to wash off all the travel I'd done that day. I also ordered room service and it was delicious and promptly delivered.

The breakfast buffet was delicious and suitible for a Western palate. The view from the restaurant was lovely as it faces the ocean. I wish I had more time to walk around the property and enjoy the beach and the view. I recommend this property highly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean for a lovely view.

I have eaten here in the buffet restaurant and generally had a pleasant dining experience. Staff are well chosen - very helpful and attentive. The range of meat and vegetable dishes is very pleasing, but maybe another roast option would be more agreeable. Some people have told me the buffet price is somewhat unreasonable, but this is at the high end where quality like this is pricey. Still, the Crown Plaza does seem to offer a little more for what you pay for a dinner out.

I was stayed this Sheraton hotel from January 24 through January 27, 2013 for 3 nights personal vacation. I was satisfied with everything provided by this hotel, and especially in the club lounge that all staff are so nice and friendly to assist me what I need. The front office staff also are very help in need. In overall with my stay in this hotel, I feel I am in home to be relaxed and no worries to be carried on.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in front of the ocean, the taxi is not so expense at moderate rate for traveler...
