Rated 4 out of 5 by angele nice hotel, so so food
great environment, nice swimming pools (indoor and out door), a lot of options for family activities, specially the family with young kid(2-10 years), very comfortable room with kind size bed.
the breakfast quantity is OK, but the taste is just so so.

Good location and facilities, I still don't think that Gold members have any advantage when travelling in China

Rated 3 out of 5 by stq88 Unfriendly Staff
The facility is OK and good for the family with kids. However, the staff at the receptionist (trainee) and at the restaurants were really bad. 1. Not familiar with the process. 2. Not friendly at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JC35 This hotel is like a wet market
Service at the restaurant is bad and there is very limited options for food. You have to queue for 45 minutes for breakfast which cost around USD 40 each person. No spoon or fork on the table and not enough waitress to serve.
Not a good hotel for relaxing in the weekend, since it is often filled with hundred of family group.
No ambience of a category 4 SPG hote/ or resort
For the price that you pay, no value for money

Rated 4 out of 5 by Makrele666 Outdoor Pool Closed :-(
Overall it was a good stay. However, negative was:
a) The outdoor pool was closed during our entire stay over Labor Day. Actually that pool was the main reason to go there in the first place. Weird enough the outdoor pool was open until 29 April 2013, but then closed over the May holidays, were there were enough customers to use it and it was very warm, too. That does not make sense at all. Furthermore a sign displayed "outdoor pool is closed due to winter, will be opened late spring". That is a lie, as the outdoor pool was open days before. Very disappointing, and brought me down the entire stay.
b) The receptions staff could not find my SPG number in the system. I forgot my card and no, but she was not able to track me in the system...

Rated 1 out of 5 by David Too many kids-family guest
The hotel obviously intended to fill in the rooms during the Chinese New Year holiday by promoting kids family group guests, which resulted in over capacity in everything and huge noise in every open/public space. It shouldn't attract so many kids family while not separating with other guests, it seems the hotel has no experience in dealing with such situation even though they launch such programs in regular weekends as well. Hundreds of noisy kids and noisy parents/grand parents make other guests into uncomfortable mood.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ben2012 A pleasant escape from the city
This was my first time at this property, so it was a pleasant change of scenery. Less than an hour away from the city, this property is located "away from the hustle bustle", and you feel like you are at a resort.
The Sculpture Park just next door provides for a great stroll, and the mini-beaches are a nice touch.
Not the place for you if you do not enjoy staying inside the hotel for the entire duration of your stay, or if you need easy access to/from public transportation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ranger The best hotel in the area
It is a beautiful resort outside Shanghai city. Room is nice but shower is bad similar to 3 stars hotel. Choice of restaurants is limited and food no good.
Staffs are friendly but need more training. Concierge is efficieny and arranged transportation with no difficulties.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Fredrik Potential for improvements
Hotel is located quite nicely just outside Shanghai city center, with easy access by either taxi or subway. Both indoor and outdoor pool and a nice park to walk around in makes this a nice oasis and getaway from the city. Room was nice and spacious with very comfortable beds. There was a lot of confusion regarding SPG benefits and front desk staff couldnt give any clear answer on what the benefits are for Platinum members, and from 3 different people i got three very different answers so I was actually never able to figure out what they really were...
