Reviewed 18 October 2016

This is a beautiful, serene, welcoming 350-room hotel resort, surrounded by mountains, natural forests and a beautiful beach. Most rooms and especially the higher ones offer great ocean views. The ultra modern contemporary design targets both those seeking a formal and casual feeling. Being a main meal breakfast person, I very much enjoyed the cuisine offerings. Excellent and attentive service...

I come here for drinks quite often, they definitely serve the best beer in this area. They can do a little change of ambience and setting tough. Buffet is poorly set up & of a 3 star hotel standard. Food is very very poor. They clearly need to be looked into. Poorly presented & taste as bad. I tried the...

For a stay at the Island of Hainan we choose for the Intercontinental. I must say that the staff is very friendly, but the property is not a 5 star Hotel.
