The private sea is quite and clean, but it closes quite early, when it gets dark, few people are there. The service is quite good, and the transportation is convenient, buses stop as you wave. It's worth trying also because of it's unique African style.

good if you live in main building”
we were settled in small additional building, different from picture, where a lot of leaks and also lizards were everywhere, then we were moved to another room, a bit better, but steak it was huge leak from the roof, during rain. After strict conversation we were finally moved to nice room in main building. Breakfast, swimming pool and location was great.

Poor resort, unprofessional staff,dirty,no private beach, good position”
The hotel is old , needs a lot maintenance works, rooms smelling umidity, BBQ is low quality and mainly Chinese style, staff personal is young , no speak English, unprofessional and lazy, rooms are dirty , smelling, furniture old , broken, poor but is close to the beach. I would highlight that is not a private beach as is written, but public!! Dangerous is taking a swimm because crazy Chinese boys riding jet sky running close to the seaside !! Definitely I suggest to think other resorts there are a lot surrounding.

Please pick another one as there are a few more nearby”
I would definitely pick other one if I ever come back to Yalong Bay area again. Beach is only 5 mins walk opposite which is good, the bus stop is also like a few mins away from the hotel which is also good. However, it wasn't value for what I paid for, I would say this is more like 2 and a half stars hotel (max 3) ...one of the staff wasn't helpful ..as it says on the web and also on the lobby that we can have our money exchange there in the Lobby but she refused to do so because she said there is something wrong with the banking system and she suggested me to go to the nearby shopping town where bank is available, however it was a Sunday and I asked if bank opens and she said NO. that's it - no further assistance. I processed to the opposite Holiday INN and tried my luck and check if I can exchange there, exchange was available to their guests only (that make sense), cos I just want to see if it was the banking system error for all hotels but it happened to be only Yalong Bay Universal Resort, refused to exchange money to its guests. that's the only problem I had with this resort. In conclude, pls pick another resorts nearby.

Proximity to beach; buffet dinner; can't come up with a third thing.
Disappointed---the AC wasn't working well; bathroom was dirty and moldy. It's closer to three stars category--definitely not five stars.

Beach
+ closeness to private zone on beach (5min walk) - old, shabby hotel past its prime times - staff friendly but not able to communicate in English - nothing much to do in the evening (only offer is a pricy buffet; other restaurants/bars are far away) Recommendation: 1-2 day stay to enjoy the beach but then move on to Sanya / other resorts

Bats flew through the hallways, decor is outdated, patio doors didn't close all the way, hotel management pushed massage therapist that can "do anything," rooms were huge, balcony was amazing and just across the street from the beach.

To stay at the resort was a last minute decision on a low budget and I wouldn't stay there again as hotel is very run down and old, in poor condition, rooms are small and need renovation. Can not recommend.

All about the ocean waves”
Private Beavh, Room Size, Sea View
We stayed for six days in a mountain and sea view room in the main building on the 6th floor. Our view was spectacular from our balcony. We overlooked the lake, the mountain was to our right, and the sea to our left. Our room was spacious giving our one year old baby plenty of space to crawl around on the carpet. And the best thing about this hotel by far is it's private beach. The swimming at yalong bay at this hotel's private beach is absolutely fantastic. The beach chairs and umbrellas are perfect for relaxation and watching the sea. And the sea is shallow enough for easy swimming while the wave are strong enough to make it fun. The waves from 4-6 PM are simply the best. And at night after 10 PM the beach is completely empty and perfect for a night stroll or just to sit and feel and listen to the waves. The hotel swimming pool is also nice for an easy swim and a break from the ocean, but the ocean and beach are the draw for this hotel. The breakfast buffet is average at best. Get the eggs, the noodles, the rice porridge, and oatmeal, but don't eat much else. The dinner buffet is not worth it in my opinion. I recommend going down the road just a bit to the shopping center where there are several good dinner options. There is also a small supermarket to pick up some snacks and drinks. The shopping center is just an 8 RMB taxi ride down the street for 5 min, and maybe a 25 min walk. You can also grab a taxi to downtown Sanya or to Dadonghai to get many more dinner and night options. Yalong Bay is a quiet nightlife with just swimming in the pool or beach walking or chillin on tap. For partying, it's Sanya or Dadonghai. This hotel is great for families or couples.
