We arrived simultaneously with a large tour group but went up to a lady who turned out to be the assistant manager. I think I spoke more Chinese there than she or anyone else spoke English. Still, she got us our reserved room, at the C-trip rate, on our Hunan Debit Card, with a 700 RMB deposit. We stayed in Villa #3 and bellhops carried our bags out for us. We had to access Internet in their business office, using their computer, at 4 yuan/hour. They had an English menu (1) and the food was nice. The grounds are beautiful and there's a golf driving range and green. We rented 2 bikes for an hour, at 15 yuan each, taken out of our deposit. The biggest disappointment, other than communications, was no hot springs, sauna or any such thing, as advertised. I just saw this review was the 3rd Google hit under "Xinlong, Hainan hotels." If you're reading this, and you want to go to Xinlong, knowing what we know, we'd have stayed at the Old Banyan Hotel for about 435 yuan a night, but real luxury! Le Meridien, on Shimei Bay, may be nicer, but 3x the cost.

... t have been easier! The first hotel we arrived at, we walked straight through their lobby and through the grounds, right beside the pool, and onto a lovely quiet beach, with white sand and turquoise sea. Awesome!! So we spent a good five or so hours there; we bought a couple of drinks at the hotel's café so we had somewhere to hide from the sun when we got hot. Still no one said anything. The waves here were so big, so we spent most of the time in the sea ...
... so it seemed like a localised problem. It was nearly out flight so we went airside and say by the gate where we found out that it had been delayed. We discussed contingency plans in case it was delayed a long time and then there was an announcement in Chinese over the tannoy. On investigation we discovered that the airline was paying for a hotel for us and with a mixture of Chinese, broken English and mine we deduced that the best thing to do was to follow everyone else... ...
En route to Phu My the nearest port to Ho ChI Min (Saigon) city. Normal lazy mix of eating sun bathing and sleeping. Amazing and interesting interview with the Captain who must have been a junior officer aboard the Countess when we travelled years ago! Formal gala night tonight with ...
... taken and then stood at the podium for individual pictures. After this our van headed for Jadebelt Beach, which is unique because it has the river on one side and the sea on the other. We took a boat out there, got off and were hit with a tropical storm. I mean the rain came down hard. There were maybe 100 people on the beach and three tarps. So everybody ran for the tarps. Our group all had umbrellas but the rain ...
Hainan is Belinda's hometown. It is an island in the South China Sea and is called the 'Hawaii of the East'. It's not industrial, but profits from agriculture and tourism. Many wealthy people buy their second home here to escape the cold winters. Sounds like Florida, doesn't it. Belinda said the local people are average people, and most spend their whole lives here, without much traveling. She wanted to see more of ...
