My wife and I had the pleasure to stay at this property during our trip to China in Mid December 2019 to celebrate my birthday.
The staff was amazing in assisting us and upgrading us to a beautiful 1 bedroom suite overlooking the world class golf course with a huge balcony.
I want to specifically thank the management team for making our stay a memorable one. I also want to thank the restaurant & lounge staff for making sure that what i was eating was safe due to my severe peanut allergy.
The hotel was very clean & spacious. It has a pool that is shared with the other nearby Marriott property which is private for guests only.
The hotel has a spa with also has a Jacuzzi in the mens & womens locker rooms
The breakfast was a large buffet style with something for everyone.
The location was right on the golf course with a nearby shopping mall just steps away that has multiple western stores & restaurants.
The property is about a 20 minute taxi ride to the downtown area but is very inexpensive.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a affordable luxury hotel in Haikou and would happily stay there again hopefully in the not so distant future.
Thanks again and a special thanks to Sarah Schuss for making sure everything was top notch for us during our stay.
The property is located in the Guanlanhu Vacation Zone, about 20 minutes' drive from the airport. The view is nice, except that there are buildings in the zone under construction. The zone is sparsely populated, especially in workdays, and that makes it a quiet place. The commercial properties (restaurants, stores) around the hotel do not actually match the Ritz-Carlton brand, but the restaurants inside the hotel are amazing. Tin Lung Heen restaurant offers very very delicious dim sum lunch buffet at a very reasonable price. The room is spacious (about 50m2 for a standard room, the balcony included) and well-decorated, taking on a sense of luxury. The signature color in this hotel is grey-blue, and I do love the narumi teaware in the color. The outdoor pool is great, but there is no indoor pool. Staff are very professional, friendly, and helpful.
I have stayed in most of the 5-star hotels in Haikou over the years and clearly I can say that the Mission Hills Ritz Carlton has the highest value for money hotel in Haikou and one of the best properties in Hainan island.
The rooms are spacious, brand new and fully equipped with all the small necessities. The staff are friendly, service and detail oriented.
The Chinese restaurant (Cantonese food) is probably the best in Haikou.
The lounge offers 5 meals a day, the chefs changes the offering daily which is quite refreshing, there are outside seating which allow you to enjoy the view.
Flare bar offers during weekends open bar with the stunning views of the golf course and the swimming pool is beautiful and quiet.
This is a great solution for business stay or a getaway as you can combine meetings downtown with golf/swim/shopping.
Thank you Sara, Karolina and the rest of the staff for the warm and friendly hospitality, I would definitely come back!
During our holiday in Hainan we stayed at The Ritz two times. The golf inspired hotel is new with spacious clean rooms and beautiful view of the Black Stone golf course. The highlight is the whole staff of the hotel, Sarah and her team provided an unforgettable experience for us, which goes far beyond 5star standards. The SPA was very good, the duck in the restaurant Tin Lung Heen is an absolute must and was the best we ever had.
The rooftop bar Flair was our favorite place in the hotel with the best view, best cocktails from Cathy, best service by all the staff, especially Hideko, and delicious food. We liked to sit outside and watch the golf course during sundown almost every evening.
Club Lounge was lovely, Monica, Cici and Sky took good care of us.
Golf: Hotel arranged teetimes and complimentary transfer to MissionHills golf. Transfer takes 10 minutes, we booked teetimes one day in advance and always could play at the desired time during our stay. We played Vintage and Sandbelt course twice and Blackstone once, all courses where in top condition. After golf we where at the pool or enjoyed massage (they have special golfers massage which was very good).
We definitely like to come back.
A straight to the point review & info:
- A taxi from the Airport is around 50yuan
- Check-In was easy and was greeted with a bagpipe player
- The staff are super friendly and will go out of their way to help you
- Could not fault the room at all. Not even a little spec of mold in the silicone in the bathroom! (strange thing to look for I know)
- Bed was comfy. Was like sleeping on a cloud.
- Gym has nice up to date equipment
- Pool was clean
- Across the road was a huge shopping mall which has a lot of stores. Some brands known e.g Nike, Addidas, etc Some not... There is an NBA and Barcelona Football Club experience/museum. A few restaurants (Chimac and Pub was super cheap and served decent food) and a grocery store. Wet and Wild is also there. For those who love a Bubble Tea there is a store on Level 1 not far from the Simpsons Store.
- Highly rate this hotel!
