Staff were literally shocking, none of them spoke English and Howard Johnson is a western chain so you'd think they'd at least have one or two people who had a basic understanding. The staff were just a bunch of kids really with no training, they were all rude and loud. The staff around the pool spent all day shouting at...

I really enjoyed the stay, amazing room, swimming pools and beaches. We stayed in a two bedroom suite and there was more than enough space for 4 persons. We had a balcony with stunning beach view! Room, hotel: Room was spacious, clean except the tissue papers smelled mouldy. I guess not many people book the two bedroom suite so these...

Very nice resort, nice pool, clean rooms, very spacious, however, I don't think this is a 5!!! star international standard. First point, we were not properly informed of the reasons why we had to pay a deposit which was far more than the total cost of the room. The staff at the reception, and everywhere else for that matter, spoke...

Spent the Chinese May Holiday at the HoJoSy and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves... went with good friends for a totally relaxing time and got that in spades!!! Nice attractive lobby and reception, wonderful rooms (we had an amazing 'ocean view') and three incredible pool complexes!!! We chose the middle pool but also spent some time at the other two areas which...

We stayed at HOJO for 2 nights as part of a package, and for the most part it was a comfortable and clean experience. The hotel is right by the beach, which includes a dedicated tunnel path from the hotel grounds to the beach (so you can avoid leaving the property and venturing off onto the street and traffic) There...

We had a great time at the HOJO Sanya Bay. When we first arrived, we were a bit early for check-in so we left our bag with the concierge and roamed around the resort. It is huge! It is beautiful! When we did get a chance to check in, we weren't very pleased with our room as our view was...

I booked this hotel as its conveniently located in the heart of Sanya Bay but as soon as we arrived we encountered problems at check in, the staff claimed they had no room booking which I made through an agent even though I had a reservation number. After much heated discussion they finally agreed to provide us with a room...

Nice family vacation on huge resort with large pool area, beach, large room and breakfast. Chinese 5-star, good value. The resort is deeply in need of a tourism information desk/booking agent to meet the needs of non-Chinese speaking families who want to see a little more of the island than the poolside. We struggled to find info and finally get...
