If you're looking for a quiet get-away spot Houhai is the perfect place in Sanya. The hostel is right at the beach, free pool table in the dormitory building, free wifi, cheap surfing board rental, the staff are really nice and helpful providing chill atmosphere. It's clean and quiet, few shops and chinese restaurants around, enough if you're okay with not eating western food for the duration of your stay. Will definitely stay in SeeSea Inn again. Thank you for everything.
The only problem is that is far from the rest of the world! The hostel is in a fisherman's village where you can find just the most basic shops (supermarket and CHINESE restaurants but nothing more) You should have cash, because there are no Atm available in the village (if you need Atm, you have to take bus or cab, about 10 mins) Not easy to find, bring hostel phone n° and ask some help Anyway, if you want to relax, enjoying beach and sea just outside your room, this is the place!
The location is spectacular because no one knows about the area or the beach, but the service was a little lacking. The front desk was often absent, didn't provide towels sunscreen or rental information, and only one lady knew a lot of English, but she was really helpful. It isn't close to any other touristy areas and the buses going into town are few and far between, but it's perfect if you want to escape everything and just lay on the beach all day and eat BBQ every night.
