Easy to get to, nice beach, reasonably priced, clean, friendly and knowledgable staff. Plenty of restaurants and bars around, they offer snorkeling and PADI courses. Next time i go to Sanya i'd stay at this place, rather than a hotel.

The location is amazing- it's about a three minute walk to the beach and there's several great restaurants nearby. The staff are all super friendly and willing to...

Went there in march! Cheap but clean rooms. Brilliant stuff especially Chris and his wife. Location was nice, too. Not too far from the beach, but we went sightseeing anyway. Would recommend to stay there.
