The place described itself as a beachside resort. The lobby was furnished in Thai style, hard wood furniture to make sure people didn't make themselves comfortable. The receptionists were also clad in Thai silk outfits. As the hotel fronted the beach, some of the rooms were a distance from the lobby, which was at one end of the property.
The rooms were large and airy, but we used airconditioning throughout our stay. Everything was in Chinese, which made using the controls of the airconditioner a hit and miss affair. (See photo)
Unique Quality: The beach was closed during our entire stay and a close examination of the beach revealed why. It was covered with washed-up jellyfish which would have made swimming uncomfortable. However there was a large swimming pool filled with water from an underground spring and the Chinese are great believers in the therapeutic benefits of such things and as such if given the choice, chosen the pool over the sea.
Directions: From Haikou city, take the road west along the coastline. After about 15 minutes Nobel will be on your right. It's a cream coloured building, about three stories with coconut trees all over the place.
noble is a beautiful resort located on the beach. the accommodation is average but the highlight is the location, more so if you get a sea view room. You will be able to watch the ship plying through the straights, numerous fishing boats going about their activities and at night you can get a panaromic view of the city from the room.
eateries are interesting and you can get local and western fare at reasonable rates. the evening buffet is well spread but you must be prepared to eat early as the buffet winds down by nine p.m.
there is huge swimming pool and the bonus is that the water is naturally heated spring water which is very beneficial for health.
the staff are very courteous and helpful but be warned that language could be serious barrier if you do not speak mandarin or the local dialect. we however strived by sign language and a few words of mandarin. you can circumstance this situation by having a set of flash cards with common phrases.
we enjoyed our stay there. surely will recommend it to travellers.
Unique Quality: pool is filled with naturally heated spring water which is beneficial for health.
the well spread buffet of international and local dishes is set very close to the beach. provides an excellent atmosphere.
