Marriott Yalong Bay Resort & Spa
Travel Blogs from Sanya
Well, I remembered why I don't sleep with my children...... woke up in the middle of the night and my little Mexican jumping bean AKA Mae had somehow wrapped ALL the duvet around her like a burrito and I was left sleeping on the mattress without sheets.
We did not get up until about 9:00am- such slugs. Down for the epic breakfast/brunch. …
We all passed out- between the a/c cranked to low and the nice beds we slept in until 9:00 am. Breakfast buffet was the hit I knew it would be- they had Chinese, Japanese, Russian, Indian and Western food. Literally something for everyone.
Stuffed ourselves then headed down to the beach- boys staked out some chairs for us by the pool and …
Knew we needed to come down to Sanya so booked us a room the other night in the Marriott. Don't know if i'd mentioned it but we do not have hot water in the apartment- really do not need as water is warmish coming out. So was looking forward to a soft bed, hot water and a breakfast buffet! Kids went to school- the books the school ordered came in …
... groceries, but never in a line that was this long before. I
tapped the women’s shoulder and told her no and pointed to the back of the line
and told her thankyou in mandarin. She brushed off my poor linguistics and
continued to maintain her place in the line. Fortunately the woman behind us
was just as agitated and jumped to our rescue. We aren’t sure what she said,
but from her tone, the gyst of it was probably something along the lines ...
but he wanted to get our photo so that he could show his friends he had hung
out with white people. The drive back in the airconditioned bmw was bliss in
comparison to the overcrowded buses.
That night we went to the lounge bar in the
center of the hotel to enjoy an evening drink. The bar was completely empty and
the poor girls couldn’t speak a word of English. Poor matt was given my
alcoholic drink to start, but in ...
How has this resort rated in the past?
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.
