Close to the beach and well located for the airport.
It's a building site! The main restaurant is closed - and clearly has been for a long time - for major refurbishment. One of the main pools is also closed. The building work is inevitably extremely noisy, making it hard to relax by the pool, which is also pretty crowded as a result of the closure, unless you find the sound of drilling, hammering and circular saws soothing. I was shocked that this wasn't mentioned anywhere in the hotel description, and although the duty manager upgraded my room by way of compensation (to an identically sized room two floors above my original room), I would much rather have stayed in one of the many other luxury hotels nearby that actually provided the facilities they advertised and weren't filled with the racket of tile-cutting, clattering metal and the constant cacophony of power tools. Oh, and the breakfast buffet, which closes at 10.30, had no coffee or fruit juice from 9.45 on two mornings. And in the restaurant I ate in, the only vegetarian option available was a pizza which took an hour to arrive. And the lobby bar had no gin or vodka on Sunday night, which was a bit of a problem if you actually wanted anything from the cocktail menu. Not that the staff knew how to make any of those cocktails anyway...
Overall good experience. the resort has wonderful facilities. Breakfast is very good and has a lot of options for westerns and easterns.
95% of the staff don't speak english. Sometimes it can be really frustating to ask for directions or just a cold beer.
Clean, large, atheistically pleasing like any large international hotel.
Lacks the quality and details of an international hotel when I came to service, restaurants, menu, Pool area and bar service.
Lovely bar area. Nice room with great view. Spa treatment we had was great value and a lovely relaxing massage. Took advantage of special offer (only advertised in Chinese so ask).
Two main pools closed and all the jacuzzis around the pool closed so far too crowded in the pools left open. No evidence of any maintenance taking place on closed pools. Asked about it but could not get explanation.
Breakfast is good - a lot of choices, facilities (eg swimming pools and gym) are good
Smoking smell in the room even though I had requested a non-smoking room. Far from Yalong beach
