Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Ritz carlton is a. huge beachfront resort comprising of several buildings connected by undercover outdoor walkways. The rooms are luxurious and oversized with walk in wardrobe, separate toilet, shower and bathroom.and sofa. The rooms have a mulit function master control panel with electronic curtains. There are many charging stations, control panels, even an inbuilt TV within the mirror in the bathroom( some rooms). Each room has a very comfortable bed, complimentary fruit, generous bottles of water, slippers, TWG tea bags and expresso coffee machine The gardens are beautiful with many water features. There are several pools , an infinity pool and the larger beach resort pool. Both pools are warm. Sitting at night by the pool listening to the live music is truly relaxing. Breakfast has a huge variety of Western and Asian foods- choices are plentiful!! We got a gift bag on check out too!! The only downside would be that staff have limited or no English including reception area. A pity. Otherwise, overseas tourist would truly enjoy staying here.

We had such a wonderful time staying at Ritz Carlton Sanya celebrating 15 happy years of Love and Romance together. It was our first time visiting Sanya. After researching through Google and TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to have our special anniversary trip at RC Sanya. As an Ambassor Elite member of Bonvoy, we were welcomed with warm and kind gestures from complimentary pick up from the airport, a designated personal butler services, sweet in room decorations welcoming us and on our special day with bottles of sparkling wines, flowers, cake, balloons, daily fresh whole fruits and fresh coconuts, attentive housekeeping team, daily F&B credit, spa treat and manymore. We booked the garden pool villa hoping to be upgraded to the beachfront villa. Unfortunately, we did not get any luck this time. Haha. The entire property looked bit tired and less appealing.... we were kind of worried when we reached the hotel lobby... But then our impressions changed almost immediately when we stepped into our villa, it's well maintained, all the electrical appliances were up to date and practical, large screen TV's, automatic toilet seat (one of the best thoughtful designs I've ever used), USB cable friendly at every corner of the rooms, Nespresso machine... The huge and deep bathtub was a big plus! 👍❤️ How we wished we could stay here when doing several times of Hotel mandatory quarantine during the past 3 years of pandemic. 😆 Now we would like to highlight the most important assets of RC Sanya, the people! 👏😍♥️ Oliver, our personal butler, who would go all the extra miles to make us happy. He jotted down all our likes and dislikes when checking us in, and shared some special info's like our special diet to F&B chef's and team. Shirley the manager, Frank, Chef Tom from Pearl Restaurant and Chef Andy from Sofia Italian restaurant did a marvellous job in accommodating our preferences especially when one of us was suffering from tummy flu before going to Sanya. Zoe, who helped us getting medical consultation and medicines. And also not to forget Jilly, Viky and the breakfast team at Sand Grill and Bar. Everyone was just too kind enough to tailor something for us out of the menu throughout our stay, we were truly grateful for all the efforts extended to us. 🙏😍♥️ Our spa masseuse ladies Lily and Amy, thank you for pampering us with your skillful hands. Chen Xiang Li and Carry from housekeeping team had made our stay amazingly comfortable. They're extremely hardworking, always with smiling faces wherever we met them. As frequent travellers, we usually don't encourage daily make up rooms as we find it's not necessary plus not environmentally friendly. Somehow I just kind of looking forward to the room being dressed by Xiang Li and Carry, their attetion to details, the neat and tidiness of displaying guest's personal items were just beyond 5 stars service! We also enjoyed some of our nights listening to live bands performed by Leon and Walds at Sand Grill. They could really sing chinese songs too! It would be even better if the bands could sing little longer than 21:30? That's a shame to leave guest's moods hanging when the night is still young. 🤭😅 Last but not least, our 'family' in Sanya, Quan who was being appointed to drive us around Sanya. Since it's a 8 hours long day trip, we invited Quan to join us along while sightseeing and dinner together, we feel that would be more considerate than just letting him wait for us in the car all day. In fact, I think Quan enjoyed as much as we did and we have shared some of our family histories towards the end of the day. Thank you once again for making our 15th anniversary a memorable one! Hats off to each and everyone whom we have met at RC Sanya!

My partner and I recently stayed at the Ritz-Carlton Yalong Bay Resort and we couldn't have been happier with our stay! As regular Ritz-Carlton Hotel guests, we can safely say that this hotel is up to par with the Ritz standard. First things first, we arrived at the hotel around 6 hours before check in due to arriving on an early flight and the staff did everything in their power to make sure that we swiftly got a room. While we waited for our room (it took approximately an hour), we explored the expansive grounds and were pleased with how well-kept the grounds and facilities were. We eventually got our room (Deluxe King-Resort View) and again were satisfied with its proximity to pools, the beach and most of the hotel's facilities. The daily breakfast buffet was expansive and offered a wide variety of foods from across the world. Additionally, the evening BBQ buffet at Fresh8 was an amazing experience for both of us. All in all, we were extremely pleased with our stay and we would like to thank all of the staff and we'd like to specially commend the General Manager Mr. Widodo on excellently running the resort. We can't wait to come back!

This hotel is amazing, mostly because of the staff . The hotel itself is huge and beautiful but as always it is the experience you have with staff that makes it . 100 percent of them are friendly . We love our lady cleaner she is so sweet . We are still here actually and have a day to go but wanted to write while still fresh in our heads . The gardeners are lovely and wave at you and say hello as they go past in their golf carts , the pool staff always say hello , restaurant staff are very hard working and professional . This hotel has had to cope with Covid staff shortages and a sudden unexpected influx of mainland guests and they have done so very professionally . We had a small issue when we checked in due to those things and they have more than made up for it with special treatment and service . I have to mention two stand out staff - Lynn the duty manager who has impeccable English and wonderful customer service skills and Budi ( from Bali ) he is amazing in the way he checks how you are every day and if you need anything , he sorts it out . Look for them as they are simply lovely and wonderful with guests . I gave myself sunstroke and was looked after so well with Lynn arranging deliveries of burn cream and other products . The food has been excellent - breakfast is a joy and the Xmas set menu was exceptional so well done to the chefs . It’s a delight to walk around this hotel as it has lovely grounds . I can’t recommend this hotel enough. !

Put simply the Ritz is the "must stay at" resort in Sanya. The grounds and facilities are excellent, the restaurants delicious and the staff are wonderful. Highly recommended for families or couples looking for a special Sanya experience. This was our first visit to Sanya, so we stayed at two resorts and visited quite a few others over 10 our days to compare the different restaurants and pools. The Ritz was the definitely the best in our view. All of the staff were warm, friendly and helpful. A special shout out to Nanncy who was always available (even on her day off!) to answer questions and ensure our needs were addressed super promptly. On a number of occasions I felt like we got extra special attention thanks to her hospitality. The gardens, pools, gym, spa, and rooms are all very nice and kept in great condition. We ate at four of the restaurants and were impressed at each one. Big thanks to Budi, who was super friendly, and always full of great advice on what to eat and how to spend our day. The hotel has tons of activities for children, and adults can also find plenty of peace, quiet and serenity on the immaculate grounds as the resort is so spacious. Even at 90% occupancy the Ritz didn't feel at all crowded like so many of the other resorts we visited in Sanya. We will absolutely be going back, and highly recommend this paradise to other travellers.

We can’t begin to say how amazing our 2.5 months at Ritz Carlton in Yalong Bay have been (April 9th 2022 - June 22nd 2022). The hotel is stunning with its traditional architecture and well looked after. The view from the upper floors is unforgettable. The facilities cater for both kids and adults, but spaces are organised in a way that allows adults to find peace and quiet while kids have plenty of fun. Restaurants offer a huge variety of meals, from breakfast through to dinner and weekend bbq are worth the price. Shout out to Sofia, the Italian restaurant, and its chef Rozvan: as an Italian, I can confidently say I’ve had the best gourmet Italian food of my life at Sofia, absolutely divine. Thanks Chef! The hotel also offered free covid tests on site, which was a huge benefit for guests arriving and leaving, not having to go to hospitals in Sanya to get tested. But the most unforgettable part of our experience at Ritz Carlton is the staff. They truly do their best to accommodate every request, like help me set up my work station by one of the pools or restaurants every day, turn the stone oven on just to make us pizzas when we fancied them, regularly sending complimentary drinks and snacks to the room, and it never came across to us as they were simply “doing their job”. We felt cared for, looked after and pampered the entire time. Their smiles and kindness were a delight to wake up to and by the end of our stay some of the staff felt like friends to us. The staff at Concierge and Reception always helped with receiving or sending parcels as I don’t speak Chinese and cannot communicate with couriers, and there were always English speakers who would assist us with anything. Amongst the staff who looked after us though, a very special mention goes to: Nancy, the sweetest and most helpful member of staff, who went above and beyond to help whenever we struggled with buying medicines or simply with the language. We wish you the absolute best for your new wedded life, you deserve it! Jerry, who not only greeted us always with a smile, but also came with us to the hospital to help us get our second dose of covid vaccine as we couldn’t return to Shanghai. An absolute star dealing with the whole registration process and explaining everything back and forth between us and the not very kind lady at the hospital counter. Keep up your kindness and smiles, Jerry! Ivy, Chef Tom and William at Sand, it felt like having dinner at a family restaurant each time, as they would always welcome us like old friends rather than guests, knowing what we liked, speaking English with us and regularly offering free drinks. And last but definitely not least, a huge thanks to Budi, the hotel Manager, the most positive, smiley, helpful, fun man we’ve ever met and a fantastic chef! Budi guided us and helped us with absolutely everything and anything we needed as the covid situation unfolded in Shanghai and we extended our stay at Ritz Carlton. And while he helped us navigate the headaches, he made sure we were happy and looked after, arranging free meals for us every now and again, and even cooked a traditional meal from his home town (Bali) for us on our last night, had the table decorated with a lovely “goodbye” message and awarded us with bronze medals for being amongst the Ritz’ longest stay guests. We couldn’t be more grateful for the experience we had at Ritz Carlton, which we now consider our second home in Sanya. We’ll hopefully be back and see everyone again soon! Thank you!!

Such an immaculate resort. Everything was just perfect. We were given a good upgrade (Platinum Elite) to lagoon access room which was really great. Sand restaurant served fantastic food. Breakfast was top quality. Nancy was amazing as she added my WeChat so any request went straight to her and she looked after us really well. My only gripe is that there seems to be very little concern for sustainability or environmental impact particularly regarding single use plastic bottles…really a shame - why not be progressive and make a stand in this regard?

I left Middle of March from Shanghai to Sanya, for 2 week holiday that has turn out so far 6 weeks escape from Shanghai Covid Lockdown (and ending is unknown) I was first 3 weeks in different resort and frankly i was satisfy it in overal. Then i got transfer to Ritz and that moment, i entered totally different world. When i checked in i was warmly welcome by VIP customer Manager Nanncy and from that moment she took exceptional care of me. I was also introduced to Hotel GM Colin and Vice GM Budi, they and actually all the Ritz staff has been so helpfull and nice to me that even if i have spend 80% of my past 16y living in hotels, this service has been over the top in all aspects. Breakfast was very nice and my regular dinner choise, Sofia, italian restaurant was very good and very tasty with wide selection of good wines. Have to mention that At the monent is low season and Sanya local government is renovating the Yalongbay beach and access is very limited. (This should be finished at end of May 2022) This did not bother me, because pool area was anyway very nice and quiet. In overal so far, and cannot see the reason why the situation would change, one of the best and most luxurious vacation that i ever had. Ritz carlton Yalongbay is suitable for solo travelers, couples, families, groups etc all age groups. Highly recommend to visit and explore.
