Sunshine, Beach, Seafood”
The hotel and the rooms were better than expected. We arrived at around 4pm, and were upgraded to three larger rooms with sea view on the same floor. We tried the Thai food restaurant there for dinner - It's a decent restaurant with good food served at reasonable price, although staff was terrible. Also, it wasn't crowded at all even during Easter holidays.
Family Friendly and on the Beach Front”
The hotel is very well located right in the middle of Yalong Bay and on the beach front. Within 1km there is the LaFlorent and Commercial Centre which have Star Bucks, Pizza Hut, KFC and a small supermarket along with a ton of Chinese Food options. Food in Yalong Bay is expensive but the food at the hotel was very good quality so we did not mind paying a bit for it. The chain stores are the same prices as normal. We had a ground floor garden view room that looked out onto the grounds which are very nice. A large area at the front of the hotel is set up as a vegie garden that they use in the hotel. The room was clean, twin big beds and the on the day we arrived I asked house keeping to deliver soft mattress's which arrived within 20 minutes and were fantastic. Without them the beds were very hard but with them were similar to other western hotels. The mattress's were on the hotel complementary items list along with cots and push chair. Every staff member I spoke with was very helpful and every one of them spoke good english, right from the bell boys to the house keeping lady. I would go back to this hotel tomorrow!
Beautiful place with reasonable pricing”
With their famous thai restaurant and international bbq dinner, food is good at this resort. However in the afternoon only the main hotel cafe is open after 1pm and before 5pm which i must say is just average food so good to have lunch early. Facillities are all pretty ok and stuff are friendly
The hotel is very clean and the staff is so friendy
Great hotel for kids”
I am travelling with my 10mth old baby, I would say the hotel service was fast and efficient. The fan was not working and within 3 min they send a technician n fix it. Request for small bath tub for my baby and was delivered within 5 min as well. Hotel has great outdoor and indoor playground for kids and they provide floats and toys for sand castle as well. They even throw in a pram for me without me asking. Overall great experience.
I had a fabulous time at this resort. We were able to check in early the day we arrived and check out late when we left (2 pm!) The room was very comfortable and even though it was a garden view, we were able to still see the ocean. The shower on the balcony is a nice feature. I'm so glad we stayed at a resort that was right on the beach. There were plenty of chairs and I noticed that the stretch of beach in front of the Mangrove was much cleaner than the beaches belonging to the other resorts. The restaurants in the hotel were nice, but expensive. We also made use of the spa and had a wonderfully relaxing time. Just a few negatives. The shower in our bathroom would randomly get cold and then hot again. Also for some reason there were hundreds of brides having their photo shoots all over the place. And the price of everything is pretty ridiculous, but I guess you expect to pay more at a resort on an island. Overall we had a lovely time and were sad to leave. We walked through a couple of the other neighboring resorts and I think I like the Mangrove the best. It isn't as swanky as the MGM. It feels like a lot of thought went into including natural elements in the layout and it feels very relaxing.
This is a fantastic hotel. I would not call it a "luxury" hotel but for the price it is a wonderful deal. We traveled to Sanya for a weekend escape from mainland China. Our garden view room on the first floor was HUGE with a large bed and massive bathroom which included a tub and rain shower. Our bedroom opened to a little deck and had a private entry into the pool. The beach was clean and there were always ample chairs to choose from. We ate at Thai restaurant two nights in a row and were impressed with the quality of the food. Not all staff members are conversant in English, but those of us who don't speak Mandarin very well still got along fine! The breakfast buffet includes Western and Chinese options which kept us satisfied well into the afternoon. If we decide to come back to Sanya we definitely plan to stay at the Mangrove!!
Great location and comfortable rooms”
Overall we had a great time. The beach, the room and the location close to the center of Yalong Bay... were all great A few things could have been better. The room: We had a big room and a very large bed, but the room faced north. The view was still great but there was no sunshine at all for the entire day. Even though we kept AC running, the room still felt very humid. The clothing also became sticky and wet and there is no chance to dry anything in the room or in the balcony. Luckily we brought lots of clothing and sets of swimming suits. The hotel has decent kids playing facilities and swimming pools. But it does not have a warm water pool and the jacuzi was turned off. The hotel offers towels on the beach and at swimming pool but primarily requires the guests to take the towels from the room. There were very few foreign guests in the hotel.
Beautiful hotel with gorgeous private beach”
I stayed here with my wife and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We stayed here instead of at one of the other 5 stars on the same beach to save a little money. Some reviewers say this hotel is more "Chinese" but I did not get that impression. The atmosphere is very relaxed. Our room was upgraded and they gave us a complimentary drink in the cafe before our room was ready. We melted at the sight of the sea after sliding into the big comfy chairs in the hotel cafe. The rest of the stay was on par. The Thai restaurant is the best of the three available restaurants.
Will definitely come back!!”
I have travelled in Thailand and Malaysia best beaches so when I booked that resort, I was very skeptical about everything. I booked it for the Balinese style. What a pleasant surprise to see that Hainan can offer such a great place: clean and spacious room, friendly staff, excellent service , nice garden with lots of trees, excellent Thai food, excellent Chinese-style steamed fish, perfect clean beach with turquoise water, comfortable beach chairs, nobody to bother us. We must have gone during the lowest season as there was no crowd, almost nobody on the beach.. that really helped to enjoy our stay. There are 2 main swimming-pools: the long one had lots of leaves as it is surrounded by trees and did not look attractive. But once inside, it was actually nice. We speak Chinese so we faced no issues. We came only for a w-e and did not do sightseeing, 3 nights were enough.
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
We had a pleasant and relaxing stay, and the hotel properly matched description and expectations. Staff more corteous than average and trying harder upon our requests, good food quality and quantity, relaxing lobby bar and well kept garden. The thai restaurant offers quite good food. General housekeeping and cleaniness standards good,no insects, gardens tidy and well kept; environment elegant and quiet although not glamorous as some neighbouring hotels. The swimming pool was ok but not particularly attractive and we did not try it. Definitely worth a stay.
kind service with beautiful sightseeing”
I love staying in Mangroove Tree Resort. the room is comfortable, the serviceman is warm hearted and kind. There are only several steps to the private beach. Not many crowded. Though there is some waste when swimming, the whole situation is not bad. My child like swimming very much. She likes the swimming pool. Walking to Hainan No.5, you can enjoy the traditional food in Hannan.
Great Location and good service”
The Yalong Bay Mangrove Tree Resort is a great hotel and I would highly recommend it. I booked a standard garden view room, but was given a free upgrade upon check-in. The sea view suite was an excellent room for two adults and two small kids. The bathrooms were especially clean and the view was lovely. My only complaints are that the beds were too hard and the breakfast was average. I would highly recommend staying at this hotel especially if you're traveling with kids.
Excellent hotel right on a private beach!”
it was the first time that we were staying in yalong bay mangrove tree resort, and we were not disappointed a minute. we have been upgraded upon arrival, the room was on the 1/f facing the swimming pool with a little terrace. the breakfast buffet was simple but good. what we enjoyed the most was the proximity to the beach. very very nice. the service was lovely, we asked for a late check out and got 2pm, not that late but better than 12pm :-) i would certainly recommend and return to the hotel.
Classy beach hotel with very convinient location”
Spacious beach with a lot of beds - really rare for beach hotel. Nice rooms with normal size and all views - sea or mountaints - are really beatiful. Additional shower at terrace is a funny extra thing. Breakfast is vast and delicious with both Asian and European varieties. Swimming pools are a bit shallow (not always a plus). Spa prices would be a bit lower. Overall - comfortable 4-5 starts hotel, one of the best in Yalong beach
Great Locaton, lovely staff”
we were upgraded to elegance room facing the sea upon arrival which was a pleasant surprise. the view of the sea from the lobby is great. it was also very nice from our room. the room is very nice and clean and the pool had a water slide which the kids enjoyed. we also enjoyed riding on segway 2-wheeler at the beach. dinner at the thai restaurant with a very nice thai atmosphere was delicious.
Ocean Sonic Resort - large hotel and great rooms.”
unfortunately the chinese government took over the hotel just before we were due to arrive - only happen in china! agoda found us a vacancy in sanya bay, the ocean sonic resort h otel. very large, grand and with a fantastic swimming pool. would recommend as a alternative if the mangrove tree was not available.
Good 5 Star Resort”
We booked for 4-nights. We missed our flight due to traffic and was only able to arrive one day later. Since it was a long weekend, the hotel was full. In the end the hotel upgraded us to a sea-view suite and it was really nice.
Great hotel, great beach, great people”
the hotel is not as glitzy as high end western hotels and that was its main advantage. it was a warm and relaxed stay. there were a minimum number of westerners and very little english spoken by staff and this all contributed to a wonderful stay. we enjoyed the lobby bar, excellent breakfasts and the thai restaurant which was so good, we ate there twice. korean restaurant was also very good. seafood restaurant didn't impress us. rooms were very comfortable. the balcony and outside shower were an important part of our enjoyment. my wife and i would highly recommend a stay at this hotel.
Unforgetable experience staying in mangrove!”
we've been staying at mangrove for five nights and it's really great experience. we've been free updated to delux seaview suite. the room is comfortable and internet acess is totally free. the swimming pool is nice and it has been heated in the afternoon for guest's convenience to swim in cold weather. we will definitely choose mangrove again next time.
