5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Apr 2015
We arrived after a few days visiting Shanghai. Felt like coming home in a luxurious hotel, kids having fun from beginning to end. Super destination (yalong bay definitely the place to stay), nice hotel, nice beach, great breakfast and rooms, great for kids. The staff was helpful and a special thanks to the general manager who went the "extra mile" to please us. Many thanks , we are coming back ! Thomas, inge, ella, William, alexander

Only hung out there for a day--easy half hour two RMB bus ride from Sanya on #15. Had pleasant lunch--great seafood pizza. Good friendly staff. Nice sandy beach. One of the best deals along Yalong Bay--but isolated. Many small pools and lots of kiddie pool toys.

.... but still to be discovered by Western tourists who however usually need a visum if planning to stay for more than three days (72 hours) on Chinas beautiful tropical Hainan Island.
Sanya Yalong Bay and its new 4 to 5 stars Holiday Inn Resort at the eastern end of the pretty Yalong Bay area are boasting a well kept private beach, some watersports as well as a relatively clean sea and of course clean rooms, partly with balcony, comfy beds, as well as restaurant meals that aren't gourmet but ok for Western tourists. The attentive staff, some of them speaking enough English as e.g. Mrs. Coco from Guest Relations or conciergeThomas, and of course -just in case- the US-American GM, all will endeavour to help you around. Around to close-by public beaches, to the Underwater World, boat trips to near-by islands, and not to forget to the Yalong Bay Shopping and Restaurant Mall, or beyond walking distance, to the 'Copacabana' of Sanya, some 30 mins away by taxi or cheap public bus. Not quite an hour away by car you will find some of the islands tourist attractions such as e.g. the Li and Miao Ecological Cultural Tourism Area or the Nanshan Religious Cultural Center. I suggest to use a hotel car to drive you around and to safely get back because it will be difficult to find a taxi to get you back to the Yalong Bay Holiday Inn then when you want to. Of course this will come a little bit more expensive (costs range from about 300 to 500 Yuan depending distance and time frame) than public transport, but it's worth it to have your own private driver also in order to avoid communication problems or to buy entrance tickets.

Room tip: If your budget permits, take a sea view room to inter alia enjoy sunrise or sunset

That’s a new hotel in Sanya. Top floors are under construction still. Some capacities like swimming pool are not in full operation and usage. But, all of constructions are in top-modern design and brand new. So, that is very good to live and get a relax in brand-new apartments. Front view to SouthChinaSea. Good coking, friendly staff. There is no any noise from builders. No any discomfort just only good, positive emotions. So, hotel looks-like to have the best recommendations.

Right on the beach, really relaxing to navigate from poolside to the private beach, but be adjacent to the famous pier and diving that departs from Yalong Bay. The lobby restaurant has great views and very comfortable couches on which to lounge, indulge in some great kabobs, sip on fresh orange juice, or assorted tropical drinks.

The hotel is dated, and the service has faded from when I first stayed there, but its still a great place to relax a few days or more. If you get the chance, take a gander at "end of the earth" via motorboat and check out the prehistoric looking rocks. Be prepared for your "guide" to try to charge you more while you're out on the boat, but just enjoy whatever you can see before the pirates try to head back... :P

Room tip: Don't trust reservations or requests. Confirm, confirm, then demand...

We stayed at this hotel last June when my wife (Chinese) was unable to get a visa for a trip we had booked to the Philippines. Sadly, Sanya - for all the hype - is not the Philippines. The hotel was ok, but a bit dated and rather a long way from most of the other hotels and restaurants in Yalong Bay. That said it was reasonable value for money and the breakfast was quite good. Would (probably) return to a holiday inn, but not in Sanya.

Room tip: Get one with a sea view. If not you'll have a rather disappointing view of the car/bus park.
