TravelPod Member ReviewsMarriott Yalong Bay Resort & Spa Sanya
I traveled from Haikou with my 3 children (16,12,10) t Sanya by train. Had booked the Marriott for it's location and from reviews. I had booked a room on Agoda and clicked on a 2 bed room. When we arrived our reservation was for 1 King bed. Front desk fixed the problem and "upgraded" us to a sea view room. Cannot for the life of me understand why an American chain would only put in double beds instead of Queen. If they really want Sanya to become the "Hawaii of China" foreign chains need to realize foreigners want a normal size bed. Hotel's main restaurant is under construction- not listed on web site but at the Crown Plaza hotel there is a center full of places to eat. It is an 8RMB taxi ride maybe 1.5 miles up the road.
Hotel is nice and looks like they are upgrading areas (main restaurant). Would be nice if there was A/C in public areas - lobby and breakfast rooms are very warm.
Beach is lovely and the pool is great.

... a while but it didn't look like it was stopping any time soon so I just walked down. The path had turned into a river and the steps had turned into proper waterfalls! My shoes aren't as waterproof as I thought and I arrived at the doctor's sopping wet. Oh well, it's an experience!
On Sunday I visited Humen which is nearby. It's very famous because it was one of the locations of the Opium War, so I learnt all about that from the museum there which ...
... although not enough for us to want to walk all the way up the hill back to our hostel. After showering we wandered back to Dadong Hai and the restaurant we'd had a drink at earlier. We had been promised free watermelon juice and weren't disappointed, it was as good as it had been earlier and I had a pineapple juice which was also delicious. We ordered our food, and before long the first things arrived - my barbecued aubergine and beef kebab. The aubergine was just ...
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 ...
When we sorted out our visas before starting our trip we were told that we were ok to visit Shanghai on a single entry Chinese visa and that Hong Kong was OK too, but if we wanted to go ashore in Sanya we would need a double entry visa. However, if ...
