Nice hotel but needs touching up

Posted Feb 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Sanya hotel prices are high, and the reason we chose Banyan Tree is because it has private villas with competitive prices compared to many other large international chains. Thumbs up for privacy offered; however, the hotel itself is starting to age, and some touching up is necessary. Dining options are at a minimal - basically just one restaurant - and after 2 meals you start to get bored. I would suggest you to choose this hotel if you want a private villa with pool to yourself; however, if you don't mind staying in a room, then go for the newer hotels.

Bad food

Posted Aug 28, 2013 on Hotels.com
I couldn't believe that such hotel will have such bad quality of food. We rent a double bedroom villa so we can spend our days in the villa quietly. The last 3 days from our 7 days stay, we had to go out for lunch and dinners because couldn't bear the food anymore.

Great settings

Got shocked when opened the door. We arrived in the evening, the pool looks great with the lights. I also like the open space bed beside the poor and the open space bath-tube.

Banyan Tree Sanya - Great Resort!

Posted Oct 3, 2011 on Hotels.com
We chose the basic accommodation, which was a villa with a private swimming pool. The property is excellent if you like privacy. The villas are clean and well-planned. 24 hour gym. Private beach. On the flip side, the food was uninspiring and the meat was tough on several tries. They need to replace their chefs if they want to be 5 star all around. For now, stay there, but eat at the close-by Intercontinental.

Good for romantic vacation. Some taxi drivers tried to rip you off when you exit the immigration at the airport. Do bargain with them, and it should only costs around RMB70-80 for one way from airport to the hotel. Airport pick-up from the hotel costs around RMB350.
