When representatives of travel agencies are asked to tell you which hotel to choose and where, 90% of the 100 will be Sanya. The logic is clear: here you can combine passive and active rest – soak up the beach and have great fun. But it is worth considering that there are almost no complexes on the 1st line in the city, all of them are located across the street from the beach. But in the vicinity and, of course, on the territory of the other two bays, there is a huge number of hotels right next to the sea.
The hotel base in Hainan has unique features. Most of the sanatoriums have 5 stars, only a small part belongs to the “fours”. Many are built in tropical forests, close to plantations of pineapples, coffee and tea, bananas, so a trip to this country gives you the opportunity to fully appreciate the delights of nature. The all-inclusive system is a huge rarity, the maximum you can buy a tour on a full board. Guests who are accustomed to resting in Europe are amazed by the huge areas of the rooms, it happens that the premises are comparable to full-fledged apartments.
There are quite a few hotels in China for families with children. They have in their arsenal wonderful playgrounds, mini-clubs, animation (in English) and even water parks.

A small bonus – if the child is under 3 years old, lunches and dinners are free for him. An excellent beach holiday is provided by the cleanest sea, a well-groomed coast with golden sand and a lot of fun on the water. The reputation of the hotel for children is spoiled a little by the decent distance from the airport – about 120 km from the air harbors of Sanya and Haikou.
