Amazing resort with a great swimming pool

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Raphael Couples - 12/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Our 4th time in Sanya and we decided to try Haitang Bay again because on the reviews and pictures of this Sofitel. Even though swimming in the sea is not allowed by the authorities in Haitang Bay, I really enjoyed this resort and the leisure it offers, specially the swimming pool area. We got a premium sea view room (I strongly recommend sea-view room) which was beautifully decorated and very spacious. The small balcony was a nice plus. The bed was very comfortable and AC working as it should. Since the day before my arrival I was contacted by Michelle who I added on wechat, I really like this kind of service as it provides easy and quick assistance if necessary. She was also very attentive and took care of us all the way. Check-out was super fast, all we did was dropping the room key and later received the billing by mail. The breakfast was nothing less than I would expect from this level of hotel in terms of offer, but I really enjoyed the quality of the food and layout of the room. What I enjoyed most in the hotel was the swimming pool areas. The actually have 2 different pools, a big one close to the rooms and another one close to the beach. Both of them offer different kind of areas to enjoy, for example the bigger one offers a bar area, a separate kids area, and quite a few smaller more private areas where you can have a chair or sofas. You can also find hammocks laying around the hotel grounds. An important comment to make is that during peak season the hotel offers helicopter tours, so there will be a lot of take-off and landing during the day. It did't bother us much though.

Dear Mr.C., Thank you for staying with us and for being a valued guest. We are thrilled to hear you had a good time and We appreciate your nice recognition of our Michelle's service. we will always be there for you anytime. Hope can see you soon ! Sincerely, Lisa Weng Guest Experience Manager

This is my 4th time at Sofitel Leeman and as shared already in 2021 it has improved greatly, service is very attentive and F&B is great for this level of hotel. It is perfect for family stay. They were able to keep a high quality also during the golden week when the hotel was extremely busy.

Dear Ms.M., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sanya Leeman Resort. Thank you for the nice praise to our F&B team , and we have conveyed your message directly to them and this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our staff.

Seoyoung K. Couples - 22/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

1. beach side pool is closed but no prior notice in any of booking site. This was the main reason that I went back to Sofitel Sanya after 2020 stay. 2. Shampoo was empty, so requested to refill on the day of arrival, however, it took 2 days to be done after the reminders. 3. Endless calls for housekeeping even though putting ‘don’t disturb’ sign. Felt like I had to be kicked out from the room for cleaning. 4. No bottle opener for beer in the room, so requested it to Service desk, however there is only 1 bottle opener available in such a big hotel, so that I had to give back the opener to the staff right away as he was waiting for me in front of the door. Got a feedback that if I want to open another bottle, please press ‘0’ to ask. 5. Got a Wechat message from concierge that they prepared a fruit plate in the room during my stay. but found out that nothing was prepared in the room. I don’t really mind if Sofitel offer me fruits or not, but if you’re not ready to provide a seamless service, better to stop having this ‘wechat concierge’ service. So it was my 2nd time in Sofitel, I won’t go back to this hotel in my future as the service level was not in a good level compared to others in Sanya.

Dear Mrs. K., We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Sofitel Sanya Leeman Resort. We pay much attention on the things you mentioned ,and did a very detailed investigation and strict measure already in placed .1,Due to the epidemic ,beach pool at that time was closed for doing a upgrading maintenance ,now it is reopen to provide better pool experience to our guest 2,About the shampoo ,we are very sorry ,that is caused by miscommunication,our team thought it was the shower gel need to refill ,failed successfully to solve our guest ' request ,3,About the DND and bottle opener ,we already adjusted the procedure ,avoid similar case happened again .4.Please accept our sincere apology again ,we already emphasized to all our team member , any thing we promised to our guest ,we need to double check make sure it is already have done . We appreciate your sharing your concerns, and it is our hope that you will give us the opportunity to better serve you in the near future. Sincerely, Lisa Weng Guest Experience Manager

Ami P. K. Families - 04/08/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Even though the hotel is cut off from the rest of Sanya, I loved it. Everything was good. Language barrier does create confusion at times but translation apps help! Just train cleaning staff to be consistent with service, they provide some things on one day and other days they don’t. Laundry service is very good! Food is good but less options for vegetarians and very few options for italian food/western food. Could be work upon. Some rooms need serious renovations. Also, please make a smoking zone in your hotel so the smokers dont smoke everywhere. The rooms air conditioning stinks of cigarette smoke. Really irritating with kids. You can add a bar and keep it for smoking zone. Rooms must have strict non-smoking policy!!! Rest is great. Maybe train staff to clean the restaurant tables immediately once the guest leaves. Typical in China that tables are always lying around uncleaned till a new guest requests it to be cleaned.

Kind and Accommodating Staff

My husband and I stayed at the Sofitel Leeman Resort for over a month and we so enjoyed our stay. The staff was so accommodating, kind, and professional. We were able to get to know a lot of them over the course of a month and we were so impressed with how they went above and beyond for their guests. The club service was impeccable and we highly recommend it. We will definitely try to get back to this resort sometime in the future.

Alejandro Couples - 05/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

For another consecutive year we decided to stay again at Sofitel. As always the service and care provided from all of the staff went well above and beyond our expectations. Everything expertly coordinated by Pierre. Even before arrival, from receiving a kind call from Tender Gao (front desk manager) to confirm that everything will be in order and that they will be expecting us, all the way to helping and making sure to accomodate all of our needs before, during and even after our stay. The food selection and quality is one of the best in the island, the facilities are in top working conditions and everyone seems to be really proud of their work and what it represents. At the front desk Maggie, Cissy & Roy were extra helpful and provided extra assistance when need it and as always going above and beyond their duties. At the pool bar Charlie had us completly hooked with excellent cocktails together with the help of Sherry. The beach was beautiful and we were really impressed by the care and safety conciousness of Corey, making sure that guests were safe and extra comfortable. As the title says, Sofitiel continues to be the best place to stay in Sanya. We will continue to go there as it has become the right place to be. Thanks to all of the staff!

Bert512 22/02/2021 TripAdvisor review

Spent four nights there, with access to Club Millésime. The range and quality of food at breakfast, tea-time and Happy Hour (5-7pm) was quite nice, though not as awesome as I would have expected with regard to the pricing. The choice of liquors must be hororably mentioned, but at the pool bar I found a bottle of Campari which never ever contained Campari, since the color of the liquid was orange and not crimson, as it should be. Most annoying: There is a helicopter landing place in the center of the resort, with service-time from 10am to 5pm. Every 5 to 10 minutes there was either a start or a landing, and helicopters were flying just 10 to 15 m above your head when you were seeking rest at the main pool. This service seemed to be very popular, and was also offered by the resorts in the neigbourhood, with the effect that the guest looking for recreation is disturbed by noise in the air almost all over the day. Finally, to say something positive: For those who booked a room facing the ocean: You can witness amazing and unforgettable sunrise at that location.

Dear Bert512, Thank you for your review of your recent stay with us. I am happy to read that you felt our resort is beautiful, but I am sorry we did not manage to exceed your expectations on all levels. Concerning the bottle of Campari at the pool bar, this would have been a display-, or dummy bottle, that does not contain the actual product as it is for display purposes only. Of course, the color should match the real thing so we will look into this. The helicopter does fly over the Beach pool, but not the main pool. We are working with the helicopter crew to create a different take off and landing protocol that would increase their altitude and reduce the noise disturbance. I am glad you enjoyed the beautiful sunrises. The sunsets are equally, if not more stunning, as the mountain side often has very light cloud cover creating amazing color reflections. I do hope you will choose us again on a future visit to Sanya. With kind regards, Marc de Beer General Manager

KevinFra31 Family - 16/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

We had an excellent stay of 4 nights in September 2019. The hotel is very well maintained and very clean. The view from the room was great. Our son of 1.5 year old spent excellent times at the kids club and with the small train. The private beach is not very nice since it's not allowed to swim due to very strong current but there are several amazing swimming pools in the property which are really great. The breakfast was really good and with a lot of choice, for more privacy there is also an executive lounge to enjoy quiet breakfast or tea. The service was great, the team offered a very warm welcome and was always available to discuss. We will definitively come back to this Sofitel if we are back in the region.

Dear KevinFra32, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to post this wonderful comment. We are thrilled to hear you and your family had a great time with us. This is the main reason why we love what we do: making sure our guests had an excellent stay and memories with us. By all means we look forward to welcoming you back anytime in the future !

Brilliant service at a beautiful hotel. The staff were all very helpful and attentive with Marie being a real star, checking in with us to make sure we were well taken care of. We travelled there during what was probably the off peak season for tourists so the attractions weren't very crowded, and there was just a lot of space to unwind in. Thanks to all the staff for making it a very pleasant stay.

Dear Jeremylee15, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to post this great comment.

Good stay. Nice hotel with kids pools (but definitly need to be refreshed and maintenained) and kids activities, special thanks to Sarah from kids club. My kids really enjoying time spent with her. Great and fun show on the friday (fire show) and saturday (magician) evening. We also really apprecite the live band every night, thanks to them for great songs and playlist. Many thanks to Christophe inviting us to his friday evening cocktail, as well as to Marie for her attention to insure our stay is great. Best thanks to Adam - missing all your foods -, Alicia (as well all team from club millesime) - missing tea time break and evening cocktail-, Jhon & Rony - missing your attention and dedicate services provided to us -. We do not have chance to swim in the sea due to authority regulation, should be mentionned it on the website. Good hotel location. Recommande this hotel if you are staying in Haitanf bay.

Dear Passport 149641, Thank you for choosing Sofitel as your holiday destination with the family ! We appreciate your comments and thrilled to hear you had a great time ! we are very impressed you remembered all our employees' names, they will be glad to hear they made a difference. With regards to the kid's pool, upgrade has been scheduled to take place in April for everyone's benefits. We hope to welcomeing you back and your family in the near future !
