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.

... to get an idea of what to expect. Anantara Vacation Club Sanya is a great way for you to learn more about the region along with the many attractions and activities it has to offer.
Sanya is surrounded from three sides by the ocean. Therefore, the town has a steady supply of seashells and other beautiful souvenirs from the sea. The seashells are particularly beautiful and feature distinct patterns such as tiger spots ...
... really nice hearing and seeing the sea. Catherine and Andreas had heat stroke from the sun unfortunately so it was an early night.
The next day we ventured to Yalong Bay - the plush, resort-y area of Sanya, where all the rich people go, along with two guys from our hostel. The taxi dropped us off at the touristy area and it was really busy, which we didn't like... so we walked further along the road and decided to try our luck at getting onto a private beach. ...
After a busy last few days it was time for us to leave Ningbo, pretty much 4 months to the day since we arrived fresh off the plane from London. Our first stop was Sanya, a beach resort on Hainan Island. Hainan Island is China's answer to Hawaii with big beaches and lots of surfing on offer - our hostel owner told us that they 'have waves' at the moment, something that became apparent as soon as we found the beach! But first, we had to get there... Despite previous bad ...
... 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 ...
