These are the best Hainan Hotels with a focus on Sanya Hotels, Sanya Resorts and Haikou Hotels.
Sanya and Haikou are the two largest cities on Hainan Island and the most likely to receive your visit.
You don't even have to book a room. (Not wise if you are arriving early to late evening though). Just write down the addresses of a few places so you have a general destination in mind.
When you look like you know where you're going, people (Taxi Drivers) will more often give you a better price and won't target you.
The best hotels charge a 10% booking fee. Most hotels at are under $7USD.
That means it'll cost you .70Cents up-front to guarantee a room is waiting for you. You pay the balance IF you stay there upon departure.
A reserved Hainan hotels room means that you'll get the best price, you can choose the room you want (facing the beach!), and it's just a whole lot of stress and bother to arrive with no idea where you're going to sleep that night.
Budget Sanya Hotels in Sanya City, Hainan Island
Our top pick of the best Sanya hotel for our budget Hainan Hotels list. Couldn't find one thing to complain about at the Sunny Sanya Family Inn.
Except maybe the fact that it is more of a hotel.
More of a hotel in that people don't have a common room to mix in like many other Sanya hotels and even a Sanya resort or two. People tended to say in their rooms but make sure to have breakfast if you want to meet up with other travelers.
The rooms are extra nice with a fridge, air-conditioner and TV. All the roms are dusted and cleaned daily by the maids and breakfast is also included into the room rate.
The Sunny Sanya Family Inn is located very near to Dadonghai beach. It might be a whole 2 minutes walk.
The location of the Sunny Sanya Family Inn is as good as it gets on Hainan Island. You're a short walk to the best areas in town for food, dancing, bathing and shopping.
Sunny Sanya Family Inn is always booked up so if you do decide you want to stay here then book a room in advance.
We are choosing to recommend this Sanya hotel because they do take good care of the rooms and the location is second to none compared to other Sanya hotels.
We will throw a little salt for you to take with that because they really try to wedge every penny they can out of every guest.
Stay away from the services the Sanya Blue Sky International Youth Hostel offers.
Services like motorbike rentals and tour tickets as well as bus tickets and all manner of things outside of your need for a bed and a good room.
The owners just add to much profit for themselves to everything. You'll find whatever you need outside of the Sanya Blue Sky International Youth Hostel for a lot cheaper.
The only other problem is keeping the sand out of your room. It is that close to the beach, they care for the place and they watch out for you and know who pays the bills.
A Private Twin Ensuite will cost you $21.99USD a night if you book online but availability is tough.
The Best Hainan Hotels in Sanya City
The Huayu Resort & Spa, Yalong Bay is not a budget hotel but one of those fantastic Hainan hotels that you may from time to time splurge on.
Two golf courses and 6 On-site Restaurants! We had to include this one because it is a 5 star hotel with 4 star pricing.
In Europe the rooms here would be $300 Euros a night but you can have a room at The Crowne Plaza Hotel Sanya City for under 80 Euros.
The Huayu Resort & Spa has the nicest pool amongst all other Hainan hotels. Make sure you go for a swim at night. It gets a bit chilly out but the pool is heated and a wonder to have to yourself.
I love the rooms most because of the awesome balcony (Book to make sure you get an ocean view!), huge bathtubs and the screen between the bathroom and bedroom that pulls back so you can watch TV while soaking in the massive bathtub.
There's also speakers in the bathroom just in case you can't hear the TV.
But the place seems empty all the time. If you love to meet people and socialize then I wouldn't stay here. But some people like the privacy.
The Huayu Resort & Spa is Not directly on the beach. You have to walk a good 4 minutes to get to it and even then it is a pretty small section of a small beach.
I had to include a Photograph. Probably the most amazing views out of any of the Hainan hotels on the whole Island.
If you can afford $150USD for a night then Gloria Resort Sanya can give you a taste of what the Rich and Famous enjoy.
It would be $800USD a night to stay in a hotel like this in the U.S.
The Gloria Resort Sanya also has the best location on Yalong Bay. It is like the owners were the first people ever on the island and got a year to find and pick the best location.
I love that the spa is right on the beach, sand and all. You can get a massage a few hundred feet from where the water washes ashore. Ridiculous but wonderful. That alone was worth the $150USD for the night I stayed at The Gloria Resort Sanya.
But I hate the surcharges. Know that Gloria Resort Sanya slaps a 15% on everything from food to shampoo. I hated that. To avoid it is pretty easy, though. Just head out of the hotel for your dinner and supplies. It's real cheap.
