Areas around the hotel are under construction, but the hotel is cooling and quiet in itself even without air-con. Beach is not the best in Sanya but location is very near to airport.

Nice Stay”
Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Howard Johnson Resort Sanya. The hotel grounds were beautiful, the pool was very nice and hardly ever crowded, and the kids enjoyed having a play area. The only thing is a couple items in the play area were broken. The breakfast offered a large selection. Most of it was Chinese style breakfast, but they did offer some western items like cereal and pastries as well. It's just a short walk from your rooms to the beach and the beach was pretty nice to play on; however, you do get bombarded by hawkers selling their goods. The rooms were cleaned pretty well and everything seemed to be in good condition. The kids enjoyed the seats on the balcony.

Lovely hotel with comfortable bed”
nice view and lovely beach
The hotel is lovely, comfortable and the facilities are good with an easy excess to the beach. The reception staffs could hardly speak English and the check-in is a bit slow. The food in the restaurants are good unfortunately the restaurants closed quite early and we have to go for supper outside the hotel. It would be good if the lobby lounge could operate till midnite so that we can relax and enjoy the music & beer before retiring to bed in such a lovely hotel environment.

Nice resort hotel”
Great view from room, spacious room, big hotel, nice pool
Very nice resort. Hotel is big and nicely decorated. View from "Deluxe Seaview" room is great, can see the pools in the hotel as well as the beach from the balcony. Most staff are friendly. Hotel is relatively clean. Room is clean, except the corners of the bathtub. Cons is "air conditioning". They set the lowest temperature degree in guest rooms so we cannot go any lower. So we have to turn on the fan to make the room cooler. I guess it's not cool enough anywhere in Sanya during the summer, including the taxis and other indoor places. There is no air conditioning in morning breakfast area so it's pretty hot. Just want to grab a few bites and leave quickly! We had dinner at the Korean restaurant and the Chinese restaurant. Both have pretty good food. Korean one is more pricy & the dishes small.

Good value”
We had a great stay at the Howard Johnson. The rooms are of good size and clean. The facilities are very nice for the money. Beach access was relatively near, but like most resorts in Sanya Bay, you have to cross a busy street to get there. The only negative would be the breakfast buffet and restaurants are clearly overpriced for what you get.

Slow Checkin/out and Poor English”
Slow checkin/out: Checkin/out procedures were time consuming. Counters should be flexible to ease the flow instead of allowing long Q at checkin counter yet no customers at checkout counter. English speaking: Receptionist could hardly understand simple english like 'Shampoo' even though website claims English as one of the spoken languages

Huge hotel with pools, garden and good private beach. Breakfast cold...”
This is a huge hotel with a large garden, pools and a private good beach. Hotel is in general clean and nice. Disadvantage with the size of the hotel is f your hotel room is on one end of the hotel. Then you must always have a long walk to get out of the hotel as it has only one entrance (exit). At the hotel entrance it was easy to get a taxi Rooms are ok, enough space, have balconies with chairs and a table. The breakfast buffet has a large selection of food, both Chinese and western. The restaurant can seat 600 persons, that mass of people (mainly Chinese) make it loud and uncomfortable. Quality of food is ok, but: bacon cold, egg cold, noodles cold, coffee cold (or nothing there). The location of the hotel is outside the city, around the hotel it is not too much to do. In general, if you want to relax staying in the hotel enjoying the beach for a weekend it is good. If you enjoy eating a nice breakfast in a relaxing atmosphere, stay away.

5 Star Hotel But Very Dirty”
Comfort, Food & Beaches
The hotel is just huge. Walking from one end to the other just takes long time. That is what happened to us. Our room is at the end of West wing and the breakfast is at the end of East wing. Imagine walking more than 10 minutes to the breakfast area and back. And we were with my elderly parents. The toilets cleanliness is just not 5 star. If this is a 3 star hotel, I will accept it. Water will flood your toilet when you shower as the shower screen is not water tight. After every shower, the toilet will flood and that's when you can see if the toilet is clean or not. However they have nice beaches even though it is not directly in front of the hotel. There is still a 5 minutes walk to it. Will not stay at this hotel again.

Good for relaxing (run away from Chinese holidays)”
Big space, swimming pools and average beach
I guess we could have enjoyed more this hotel if it wasn't a Chinese national holiday. In general we wouldn't feel the crowd except for breakfast time which was a horrible experience. The two restaurants were not enough to accommodate so many people, and for some reason one or the other restaurant don't work at some days of the week. Crazy. Staff speak very little English but I think that's acceptable. We had a noise problem with the neighbor's air conditioning machine. After talking to 5 staffs and 3 or 4 phone calls, they managed to solve it. Premier Suite View Suite has plenty of space: 2 bedrooms and living room. Swimming pools are nice and big. Beach is quite a good walk exercise, with a underground passage to avoid the road. Beach is just average, sand and sea are not so clean. Better travel a bit to see clear water.

Good Hotel, small problems”
Location, Overall condition, Staff
Some troubles, like the Airport Transfer, they tried to "scam" me CN¥ 80,00 for a trip that costs CNY¥ 17,00. Hotel is good, Chinese Breakfast, no one slice of cheese is found, even with a large amount of foreigners, it was a shame do not found small western food options on breakfast. Nice pools, nice bedrooms, nice view. It is a good option, but, be aware, it is a Western Hotel Chain, rules Chinese way of hospitality. Hotel charges me some other taxes, even that i paid all taxes here at Agoda. I think that i was overcharged

Great hotel with nice seaview”
Nice view, great swimming pools, spacious room
Easily accessible with metered cab.. Stayed 2 nights here in different rooms.. Love the deluxe seaview room as you can get to see the hotel surroundings with the seaview.. Hotel staff can also help to book a cab at additional 5RMB if you wish to travel to city area or sightseeing places. Would suggest to go for the supreme seaview room as the view would be a spectacular full seaview instead..

Best stay in China”
Location, Pool, Beach
This was my 19th city I visited in China, and I must say that Sanya is the best. The hotel is also perfect, nice pool, quiet surroundings, delicious food, and easy transport. I regretted only spending there 3 days, should've been more. If I were to go back, I'd definitely stay in this place again. Make sure to get the Superior Sea View room at least, for the sake of breathtaking view in the morning.

Horrible Experience”
As our flight back home was first postponed to 2 AM and then canceled we had to get an hotel close to airport. I booked via agoda using my smart phone. 30 minutes after the booking we were at the hotel. The staff at the reception was complete useless, they did not receive the booking and had no access to the mail system of the hotel. She could not speak English (I speak Chinese but the agoda service didnt) Took us 1 hour to get the room (in the middle of the night with a small baby on the arm). The receptionist even asked us to leave as we had no booking in her system and she can not give us a room in the middle of the night! .... Well the room was small and ugly, anyhow hard to find any positive notes after the horrible check in.....we left early morning the next day not giving the Howard Johnson Resort Sanya Bay any more chance to disappoint us....

Right at the beach, gardens, relatively clean
We enjoyed our stay. The resort is spacious and clean, with easy access to the beach. Ask and you shall receive - I asked to use the hotel beach towels after we had checked out, and they allowed us to use their facilities for the remainder of the day. This was a very nice gesture from the hotel. I would come here again if we visit Sanya in the future.

If you are an impatient person, AVOID this hotel”
nice decoration, nice hardware, nice environment
Very poor experience. The staffs at the reception were extremely inefficient. I arrived at the hotel at 2:00pm, they allocated a 1/F room to me which I refused to accept. They arrange another room to me but I have to wait for 1hour 30 minutes. Upon check out, I waited 15 minutes for the staff to confirm everything done. If you speak english or foreign language, be prepared to suffer from the language barrier with the hotel staffs. The breakfast has numerous choice of food, but strangely all the foods taste like the same / without taste at all. One of the worst breakfast buffet I ever had. Moreover, when you swim at the swimming pool, beware of the broken / missing tiles at the bottom of the pools. It is quite dangerous and should be repaired immediately. Nothing special to mention about the room itself. It is clean, but really nothing outstanding.

Good choice!”
Nice view, nice service, nice food, nice pool, nice beach.
The hotel is really big and the room is really spacious as compared to the other hotel I’ve been in another Chinese city – Hong Kong – and I like it better here This hotel has exceeded my expectation. It has a private underpass leading to the beach which I felt was a really personalized service. The team of customer service staff is warming and always has a smile on their faces making me feel loved. Everything in the room surprises me and I like lying on the beach bench soaking in the sunshine. I will miss China, miss Sanya and miss your hotel.
