Excellence services
I stay in the Ocean Sonice Resort, the counter staff provide warmth and friendly services to us. They also provide me a free upgrade to higher level room. Better viewing faxing seaside. But we prefer a lower level but see manage to see I insight Swimming pool and sea wire as well. I highly recommend tourist to stay in this hotel. Regards Oh SL

Decent place but not more
hard to say, really.
It was just okay, but nothing special. Location itself not the best, I would prefer to stay somewhere in Daduhai Bay, as there is nothing much to do in Sanya city area, and most of the touristic places are quite far.If you want to go to the thermal springs, or so called "romantic park" - anyway it's gonna take around 30-40 min of travel and ~60-70 local currency. Food at the hotel is quite expensive and very "so-so", you better go outside and find some local small cafe with seafood, which is quite good. However, prices in Sanya nowadays are out of mind. We used to live in Beijing sometime ago and were quite surprised to see price for the dinner at local food stations. Wooa...

Cleaners do not follow instruction.
Pools, cleanliness and quietness.
Overall a good hotel to stay, however was very disappointed with one thing. I specifically put up the do not disturb sign and when we were out of the hotel my wife had a call from the hotel to her mobile asking if we wanted the room cleaned, which she clearly advised in Mandarin that we did not (Because we had passports and cash in the room). However when we got back the room was cleaned, and upon complaining we were advised that there was a miscommunication between the lobby staff and the cleaners (unsure how this was possible with a sign that was up and a phone call that was made to us), so I checked out feeling uncomfortable.

Nice hotel, clean rooms
Near the beach, Nice Pool, Large Rooms
Overall stay was OK at Holiday Inn. We chose this hotel in Hainan Island because it was an international brand and we expected certain standards coming from an International hotel chain. We weren't surprise, and believed Holiday Inn perform better than most local hotels. However, hotels in Sanya was pricey, and we thought the whole area wasn't value for money, not just Holiday Inn alone.

Hotel management and hygiene can improve
Spacious room, swimming pool and access to beach
Hygiene and food handling practice is a concerned. Food quality and knowledge of international cuisine could improve with better chefs and food safety hoods over open food buffet, e.g.. limited knowledge of preparing and cooking seafood which is often overcooked. Cleanliness could improve if disinfectant is applied and cloth used to wipe table scraps is seen used for other purposes. Ambience ruined by repeated play of old songs and music through blaring loud speakers. Smell of dampness in room and carpet flooring. Could improve with more airing of the place or use of bicarbonate soda or chemicals to absorb the dampness and bad smells.
