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.

Beautiful beach, friendly and helpful staff and local people, near other beauty spots
The sea view from the hotel is gorgeous. We could see the fantastic sea from our bed. The food in the restaurant was nice but the evening buffet by the swimming pool was not worth the money. Staff was very helpful but spoke little English.

This hotel is in a prominent location near the beach. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the hotel receptions are very friendly. When approached, they will put on a smiling face and help us, being it road direction or restaurant recommendation. The reception are also very fast in settling the check in.

Great Place”
Good price, The biggest breakfast buffet I ever seen with good international and Chinese food, nice staff, nice and clean room
Nothing i can tell, dinner set at the restaurant on second floor is expensive but the food is so so. Do not try the legence of Hainan island dinner set = taste less and expensive. Bike rental is so expensive here.
The room is nice and clean, staff is great, polite and helpful. The theme of this hotel is African tropical, so there is an English speaking African bell boy who is very helpful. The buffet is big in its selection with lot of different food. If you like Bangkok tourist hotel breakfast buffet, you will like this hotel's breakfast buffet which is even better.

An amazing deal”
great price, location, cleanliness, travel service in the hotel, and overall service
no cushions on lounge chairs, the bathroom was nice but nothing special, the checkout was frantic (too few staff handling the people checking out at the last minute)
While in Sanya, we stayed at three hotels -- The Holiday Inn Sanya Bay, the Sunny Sanya Family in at Dadonghai, and the Universal Resort at Yalong Bay. After booking, I was most worried about the state of the Universal Resort. We booked a Deluxe Suite, and the cost was so low (a total of just over 600 RMB per night) that I was sure one of the following was true: (1) There was a mistake in the pricing, and we would be told of the error on checking in (2) The hotel was under renovation and was going to be a noisy, dusty nightmare (3) The room would be in horrible shape and would be overlooking a parking lot or trash dump. (4) The new hotel (The Aegean Conifer, I believe) would block the view and access to the beach. (5) Agoda was a scam To my surprise, everything was great. On check-in, they had all our information and the room keys already set aside for us. The room (rooms, I should say -- it was a two-room suite) was wonderful. There were two clean rooms with a TV in each room and a balcony off of each room. We had a view of the mountain, lake, and sea from each balcony. The service was good, and we had quick response to the one problem we encountered -- water leaking from the air conditioning vent. There was a stain on one part of the carpet, but that was minor. The breakfast was good. The beach, although across the street, was quick and easy to access. Their beach chairs had no cushions, but in light of the other benefits of the hotel, this was an insignificant annoyance. Oh, we also used the travel service located in the hotel and got great prices on airline tickets -- lower than I had found online. This was my first time to use Agoda and to stay at the Universal Resort, and so started out a little worried about both. In the end, I was very satisfied with both, and would use both again.

Not really worth it”
Price
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.

Awesome Private Beach
The private beach is just across the street from the hotel and it is perfect. An easy 2 min walk, the private beach is set up perfectly with plenty of chairs and umbrellas. The water is absolutely fantastic. We swam for several hours everyday.. My wife, baby, and I had a great relaxing vacation. The breakfast buffet is just okay for my American taste, but great for my Chinese wife. The dinner BBQ buffet by the pool is good, but music way too loud. We went out for dinner after the first night. Food plaza just a 5 min and an 8 RMB taxi ride away. Taxis are always waiting at the hotel. Room was spacious and with great view. We had a deluxe Mtn and sea view room on the 8th floor in the main bldg. I recommend floors 7-9 in the main bldg for great views over the villa rooms, which are nice rooms but the view of the sea is blocked by Palm trees. But it is the private beach and the clean sea for swimming which made the trip for us. We will definitely go back.

Relaxing holiay with our daughter and son in law”
Close to the private beach. Reasonable prices as the hotel is not among the newest in this area, but well kept. 10 minutes walk to a new restaurang and shopping area.
This was our second visit to this hotel in Yalong bay, Sanya. This time we discovered a restaurant and shopping area only 10 min. walk from the hotel. Good restaurants partly open to the square, live music(a little bit loud though, coffee shops, super market and smaller shops. We also enjoyed som tours such a visit in the rain forest park Yanoda and a boat trip along the beach of "end of the world" in sanya, watching cliff formations in the sea. The private beach which is kept by the hotel is good as the beach can be quite occupied. Unfortunately are there too few sunchairs around the big pool area. Only available or 10 persons. It could have been at least the double.

Сам отель очень хороший: недалеко от моря, вкусные завтраки, хорошо убирают номера. Неплохой бассейн. Но обеды и ужины очень дорогие. И еще: вечером на пляже полно крыс. То есть посидеть на море после заката - опасно! Не понимаю, почему нельзя их потравить??!!!

Great hotel with beautiful private beach”
staff was kind, clean, great beach, great pool
Hotel was excellent. Hotel staff were very helpful and kind including allowing us to go ahead and check in early (around 7AM) as our train had arrived at 5AM. The private beach was great since it limited the number of busloads of tourists coming into the beach for the day from overtaking the beack. The only negative was the limited availability of other restaurants and the high cost of food.

hotel room is better than expectation, comfortable and clean. we love the pool side sea food dinner buffet though it is a litte bit expensive when comparing to other hotels' buffet price. its location is convience to the yalong bay with 3 mins walking distance across the road. hotel concierge staff are friendly and informative, especially on suggestion of water activities. it would be better if the website can mention about extra charge on government tax as a reminder to the users.

Special design with threatre”
Convenient, fair price
The design of the hotel is unique. Outlook liked a half ball. you can reach the beach in 5 minutes after crossing the road. but the seaview room will be blocked of seaview as there are hotels in the front. Breakast choice OK, but the appetizers, salad needed to be frozen or placed with ice at the bottom. Yogurt was just placed on the table in room temperature and I saw small mosquitoes climbing along the vegetable! Dissatified with the hotel service. I request a single bed but twin beds were given. The reception asked if I accept the hotel to move close of the twin beds. OK. But what I see in the room is still 2 separate beds and I have to move the beds by myself. The staff acted only when check out. I just stayed 2 minutes more in the room and then the staff called and requested me to check out. Will never stay in this hotel again.

location / staff
the hotel is lovely. it is clean and the rooms were really good. comfortable bed (but two single beds when you book the cheapest room)and good bathroom. the staff were friendly and helpful but speak very limited english. very close proximity to the beach (which is lovely) but becomes slightly ridiculous when it comes to reserving sunbeds (some people are clearly up at 7am to put towels on the sunbeds they then keep for the day!). the food choices are pretty limited and most nearby hotels tend to have all you can eat buffet barbecues which are ok. you will need a taxi to get to other restaurants or the fancier hotels at the other end of yaolong bay. good for a few days of lying by the pool / on the beach.
