We stayed here at the recommendation of our private tour company, Wild China. This was what I was hoping for in getting outside of the biggest cities in China. The location is absolutely superb - right on the river, near a small rural village. Since we had a guide and driver lined up, it was not an inconvenience to be...

Dear Guest, We thank you for a great review and are pleased to hear that your stay at Moondance was satisfying. One of the most important parts of running a hotel is to make sure all the hardware is working and that's not always easy when you are situated in the countryside. Moondance tries her best to offer comfort and...

We(a couple and a toddler) stayed here during Easter because we didn't get a booking at The Giggling Tree. The hotel is located in a small village near a river and the view was quite nice with a few odd dumps of garbage but that's because of the construction going on I'm assuming. There was also a lot of noise...

The Moondance Resort has to be located in the most picturesque spot you could imagine! The staff are very friendly and speak excellent English. The Rooms are clean, well appointed and request that you respect environmental issues. You need to bring your mossie repellent as the mosquitos are the size of small dogs. But the resort, the staff and the...

We loved the Moondance! Even some pre-season renovation work on the pool could not spoil our love of this hotel. The staff, led by the wonderful Susan, could not have been more attentive or helpful - they tried so hard to make it feel like a home from home and really succeeded. The food was fantastic - Western or Chinese...

Location and setting: right by the Jinbao River with a big front yard. We took quite some pictures just at the front yard or the river and it was so green that it didn't look real. We always had to cross the river when we went out and out of the 3 days we stayed there 2 days the river...

We had a wonderful 4 day stay. Susan, who greets all guests, has excellent English skills and had many suggestions for excursions: rafting on the river, Impressions show, hiking through the small village in which Moondance resides and through small local farmland, into caves and over gorgeous bridges (with guide Amy who was SUPERB - local rice farmer turned guide),...

Very nice natural environment, the kindest people and tasty food. Rooms are incredibly ample and nice. Bikes for free. They are in the making of a swimming pool that will give the place a perfect excuse to stay in the hotel. Magic place

Moondance resort is an excellent and quiet retreat. The hotel is very attractive, in a beautiful riverside location, very comfortable, nicely furnished & spacious rooms with private balconies. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Our stay at Moondance was a welcome relief from the noise and crowds of Guilin and Yangshuo. We relaxed, had drinks on the riverfront deck,...

Pros: : Hotel is really beautiful, in a gorgeous setting, off the beaten track. Walks in the surrounding countryside are easy on the village road and paved walking paths between villages. Room was splendid and large. Had front facing view and wonderful to watch the ladies doing laundry in the river and the occasional water buffalo. Room was very clean...

The Moondance Resort is about eight kilometers outside Yangshuo. It is on the Jinbao River and the Karst mountains are a beautiful backdrop to the setting. It is just across the river on a single lane track over a dam. The hotel is very picturesque and our room is huge. The bathroom has a humongous free standing tub and a...

Dear Rich, We thank you for your honest review and I'm truly sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Moondance very much. Our goal is to live up to our guest's expectations as much as possible and we blame it on ourselves if we fail. And in your case it wasn't the hardware that failed. We lacked in service...
