Hotel only 5 mins on the taxi from the airport which makes it super convenient, especially traveling with our young child. When you come out of the airport taxi drivers will haggle pricing with you, but the actual fare was only 25RMB. We got the hotel to get us a taxi to take us to the airport, they got us...

This resort has an outstanding setup. The 50m long swimming pool along with the two smaller ones in the middle.of the tree shade are probably.among the best you can find in many places. The green areas maintenance is top level. Rooms nice and quite big Air conditioning was poor and the ceiling fan could partially get some comfort. The checkout...

Try to get sea view rooms, they have better view and quiet at night. Two bedroom apartments good enough for the family with two kids, clean and comfortable. Cleaning is done every day on demand. Towels, bathrobes, sleepers, toiletries all provided. Swimming pools are clean, but sea side beach is open to public, it is very dirty and smells really...

The rooms are very comfortable but was let down by the shower flooding the bathroom every day. Food was so so but even if you're here on business or pleasure, not having an efficiently working wifi box in your room is quite frankly unacceptable. I complained and all I got a replacement box that still did not work. Very disappointing.

The receptionist will call your airline to change a booking, will tell you to wait and then will go to another desk, completely ignoring you. The lights in the common areas are dim. The common areas are dimmer than outdoors, even when the lights are switched on. For room service, expect to be told “sorry no Engrish”. So why does...

The hotel is just huge. Walking from one end to the other just takes long time. That is what happened to us. Our room is at the end of West wing and the breakfast is at the end of East wing. Imagine walking more than 10 minutes to the breakfast area alone. And we were with my elderly parents. The...

This hotel markets itself as luxurious yet the hotel fell short of such the 5-star rating it claims to have. The rooms itself are fine but there is a weird curtain separation to the bathroom that offers no privacy. The problem is the quality of the hotel's amenities. The pool seems a little dirty and dated and the underground passage...

Nice resort directly on the beach. Would definitely return. Stayed 5 days - never left the hotel. Super relaxing. Got to swim everyday. Didn't feel like China! Except ...Tried to leave the breakfast with a coffee and was chased down by the staff lady - they don't want people leaving with anything!

A couple of friends and I stayed here for a week and it was a great experience. Although the hotel rooms we stayed in were not the best (and lacked a window that separated the bathroom and the room itself), the facilities like the pool and the location was great. I spent pretty much all of my day either in...

First of all I want to apologize form my bad English – it´s not my mother language but I hope you can follow. To the topic – the Howard Johnson in Sanya - I will start with the conclusion: AVOID IT! So why is that? To be fair, it´s not an “all bad” place. No, there are really some pros...
