One of the best Hotel in the area. Rooms are Seaview with Jacuzzi on the big balcony. The pool are open during all year and if cold there are the polls in the Hot Spring. Breakfast good, nice afternoon tea at 3pm with singers, big buffet in the evening with nice manager Wendy so kind with us. Thanks for the managers Winni and William to satisfy our requests and Kiki for making us visiting different rooms before check in. We will come back for sure but I always suggest to avoid weekends as I usually do.

Yes it is an international chain, a Howard Johnson Sandalwood hotel. Yes its designer is somewhat known. The resorts appearance does look quite nice, the lobby is wide , opened and pretty. For a moment I thought i was in Danang's Intercontinental Hotel, but this feeling did not last long. The property is huge. There are 5 different towers if i recall properly. One is for residents , two for rooms , and one for the hot spring. The rooms are spacious and I have nothing to complain about it , the balcony has its own private hot spring tub which was amazing. View was nice too, facing the beach! Beds were comf and we paid around 1200 RMB / night on a Sunday night. Public hot spring facility - there are at least 10 different tubs each with a different scent, outdoors , very nice. Its the people, the service and the maintenance that is the problem. Dinner was buffet, and the chinese mentality towards buffet has lack of etiquette. People take two plates and take as much food as they can and bring it back to their tables, when you line up after the bunch of hungry guests you'll probably have 3 shrimps left from the counter to get food. It felt like it was a free meal and everyone has been starving for months. I didn't have appetite seeing the crowd and the food. Although i must say there was a big variation of food selection. Limited alcohol though. Staffs aren't really well trained, at least not to international standard. They dont really know what they are doing, serving, they lack motivation and just simply dont' care. Hotel bar isn't very good either. although nice view. The location is seriously in the middle of no where. Hui Zhou is a newly developed town and a lot of upcoming residential buildings. But the surrounding at the moment are just farms and roads. You can't get here without a car. Theres no convenient store nearby either. You must speak Chinese if not you wont' survive. I tried so hard to call a cab to send me back to Shenzhen the next day, I ended up paying 700 RMB. If i called the hotel car service it would cost me 1000 rmb. To be honest, I did not enjoy my stay at all although it was a nice sleep and good bath in my balcony. The guests who goes there are mainly Chinese people from nearby cities/ towns. The neighborhood isn't developed yet and there aren't enough facilities within the property to fully satisfy guests. I wouldn't recommend this and I would not come back. But if you're stuck in China or near by Hui zhou and would like to have a simple getaway, this could be your choice. I'd prefer to go to Hai Nan Island x 100 times.

The hotel is really great, it’s have all the facilities you need for a short holiday! The rooms are fantastic, They are big, it’s clean have many big showers which are working great, and a tub on the balcony. We have stayed on the 25th floor which gives a great view at the beach and the swimming pools! The hotspring is also very nice and comfortable! I would certainly go again, only I will go during the week time instead of the weekend! There are just to many people in the weekend! Don’t forget to visit the skybar it’s nice spot to have a drink and get the view For kids it’s a amazing place as well! The dinner is good, a big variations of food! There is also a noodle restaurant for a quick bite during the afternoon. Finally it’s a great place.

This was my second visit. The hotel ground was, unfortunately, under maintenance. However, the weather was fine and I managed to take some nice pictures of sunset and of sunrise. The hotel is nice, offering spacious living areas and splendid views from the 2nd block (where I stayed on both occasions). One could view the beach and sunrise from the front balcony and sunset from the rear balcony. The 2nd block has the best orientation with the front facing East and the rear facing West. It is a 5-star hotel offering excellent buffet meals. Walking to the front beach takes about 5 minutes. To take good pictures of sunset at the rear one could go up to the 30th floor of the 2nd block; there is a small balcony overlooking the farm ponds (for raising prawns). At sunset the pond reflections are beautiful; they change colors as the sun sets. As one travels to Shuangyue Bay (where the resort is), one passes over the Huizhou Haiwan Bridge. I like to take pictures of the bridge (with its orange steel cables) from the rear of the tour bus. It is important to go there on a sunny day, for viewing sunrise and sunset.

I came here with my family for special occasion. However, here is huge disappointment. The facility looks great in the pictures but actually no. On the top of that the room is very dirty and not so well designed for comfortable stay. I will not recommend my friends to come this hotel.

We book two family rooms and one twins room! However, we just could take the twins room first while we wanted to check in at 1500 hours! The twins room did not clean at all but the staff gave us the room! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤦🏼‍♀️ Moreover, while we checked in and requested to change a cleaned room, the reception staff was very impolite. We took all of our rooms after the hotel's check in time at last. The sofa was very dirty in our rooms! However, the view of this hotel is really good! Actually, just the view is good! The manage system of this hotel really need to improve!

It's a quite new hotel, so everything was still new, fresh and clean. We'd like the design of the hotel. In terms of hotel room, it was big (big bathroom, bed, sofa, etc), modern and clean. It has its own balcony with its own 'hot spring' tub. Got a nice view to the swimming pools, beach and sea. Please note the hotel was quite isolated, so there were no nearby activities (beside a few restaurants and a store) available. But all the activities could take place inside the hotel complex; infinity pools, kids pool, restaurants, massage, kids playground, billiard table, cinema, etc. The private beach had a lot of stones and shells, so not ideal to lay on it to got a tan. Also, the colour of the sea water was not that attractive. The dinner buffet was good, but the breakfast buffet was average. Although it's a 5 (or 6) star hotel on Chinese standards, we'd think it as 4 star on international standards. Don't get us wrong, it's chique and clean, but we didn't got the same luxurous feeling as we did from other Western 5 star hotels. Overall, we did enjoy our relaxed weekend away from the city. PS: they are building the other two towers, so there might be still construction works going on

I join the resort trip from Hong Kong. The newly open hotel is everything it says it is even though I would not give it a 6 stars rating considering not all facility are opened for service and the unfinished buildings are still under construction. The unique Sea View room I stayed in facing the private beach just like the rest of the hotel rooms. The view is incredible. The Room is spacious with all the amenities. Out in the balcony is the private hot tub which draw hot water from the sea bed. A great experience in enjoying the hot spring up in the seventeenth floor. The main Restaurant provide morning buffet and night buffet with wide selection of food items. There are also a Chinese Restaurant and a noodle house to fit your appetite.

The Hotel is new, not everything is finish, Hotel is, but the apartment building still under construction. But this do not really infected our stay. We had nice time in a nice hotel, with nice pools, two infinity, one nice integrated garden pool. Very nice kids pool area with playground, perfect for young and old. The beach is nice and clean. the ocean clean but a bit wild, this time, maybe other season more quite. The hot spring areal is not open now, but we also didn't pay the standard price, so we can not and we don't want to complain. The rooms are very nice, with a hotspring bathtub. And a perfect ocean view and nice night view to the pool and garden area. Breakfast and dinner buffet

This hotel had opened back in July 2015, It has amazing restaurants, not much western styles buy enough of everything to keep a family from going hungry. The swimming pools are made for babies to adults, full king sized bed by the pool and ton of beach chair setups that make you feel like a king under the sun.. Its got inside movie theaters and a kids zone. I loved the hotel room designs and the bath tube that was on the patio facing the beach.. Everyone could speak English and I felt right at home. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that they didn't allow us to swim in the ocean fearing for sharks or fearing that we couldn't swim, so the ocean is like a live picture, but you can't swim in it, its got wonderful waves and very clean. Thats the only reason I won't go back because they won't allow us to swim in the ocean.
