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.

... a taxi, we eventually got back to the apartment. And now we all have one big problem....We're sun burnt, it was windy today we hadn't felt it and the sun cream Seemingly wasn't enough because we all are red raw and feeling sorry for ourselves. Early night today, des and Cian went for a stroll but we stayed in to type up. That's it for now, tomorrow we'll be in a night bus for god knows how many hours so you'll hear from us in 2 days. Night all, Love Clíona, Miriam, Des & Cian ...
Another short night, breakfast is until 9.00am so went downstairs at 8.30. Unfortunately breakfast wasn't very satisfying. They only had noodles, eggs and a dry sort of bread. We all ate something, but will definitely have early lunch.
Beach day today! We took a taxi to Sanya bay. Which a bit of a strange beach. There are no stalls at all and you don't really see people swimming and people just stare at us. We've seen people walking ...
... so didn't get anything booked yet.
Quick change (gets chilly here at nighttime) and Skypesesh with Miriam's brother and dad when we got to the apartment, how lovely to speak to them
Off for a drink now, Clíona had read about some nice places, so off we went! We ended up in some market looking place, with food and drink stands on the sides and then tables in the middle. They had 3,5l beer taps there that you could buy, Cian and Des got one of them! ...
... 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 ...
