One of my regular places to stay in Yantai. It has always been a good value with friendly service. This time, though, I am disappointed to say that their service level has dropped tremendously. Rooms are not generally cleaned as well, nor requests for service or laundry handled promptly. There is a general sense of apathy among the new staff.... More

The shower area comes with nice features such as overhead raining-type showerhead, corrugated floor strip and see-through glass screen to the bedroom. The interior of the guest room have a modern style deco with pleasant warm colour theme. The room also have all essential... More

Very nice rooms with bathtub with a "view". When you sit in the tub you can see the marvelous sea and follow the view. And this from pretty much every room. Rates are reasonable considering that Yantai is a tier 3 city, but there are much more pricier choices in Yantai. Breakfast is Chinese style, but have some western stuff.... More

This is a surprisingly good hotel. The position is about a 10 minute drive from downtown Yantai, but well worth it. The rooms are excellent (same standard as Hyatt in my opinion) with a super shower and great decoration and very modern... staff are especially friendly and helpful. The onsite restaurant is also very good. Very modern, clean and well... More

I stayed at the Buena Vista Gulf hotel for 2 nights in early June 2010. It is quite a new hotel and is very nice - rooms are well designed and while not huge, are quite 'roomy'. I used the hotel fitness centre (on the top floor) which was small, but had one of everything and is clearly not used... More

A nice hotel on a little hill with a nice view on the sea (if no fog or smog is in the way like it was when I was there). The hotel is build new with some construction in front of the hotel. But these constructions are hand made (no machines) so no bigger disturbances due to noise. Nice furniture... More

Stayed here for three nights. Excellent four star hotel with wonderful breakfast buffet. Free very fast internet connection and wonderful service. The place is new and it is locate right on the coast overlooking the sea. You can walk down from the hotel as it is perched on a knoll and then stroll along the walkway next to the sea.... More

We spend the Easter weekend in one of the suites, which actually is not a real suite, but a sitting and work area separated from the bed and the big bathtub. The two small balconies are in the "bedroom area", overlooking the sea. Everything is nicely designed, enough light, enough power outlets, only the mini bar could be filled better,... More
