Rated 5 out of 5 by Fruit A Million Dollar View
Oh... my God... What a wonderful hotel !!!
You don't need to go to Hainan or Hawaii, you can be in Shenzhen to have the feel of it. Ok, may be not 100% Hawaii because the sun shows up less frequent but close enough to me.
I knew this hotel is in Shenzhen for many years, but somehow I never stayed here, but picked those in the city center i.e. St. Regis, Westin, etc. until my company's summit on March this year. I was stunned by how nice of the atmosphere, the view, the sound of the ocean waves, and most of the staffs in this hotel.
My first stay was only a few days, so I decided to stay a little longer for this second time and the experience is as good as the first time if not better. Here are few highlights that I observed or experienced in this hotel:
A million dollar view from the rooms, I believe they are all facing the ocean. I got upgraded both times to a better room (suite) though due to my SPG status.
Indoor and outdoor swimming pools with the ocean right next to them. Not like most of the other hotels in Shenzhen, the air seems to be fresher in this hotel, the nature seems to be closer, the facial reactions of the staffs seem to be more real.
The staffs in the club lounge are very nice. They are not necessary to be super model pretty, but they are well trained with good manner even under stress (yeah...I am one of those PITA customer). They react as real human beings, instead of some fancy smiling robots without brains.
However, the food in this hotel has space for improvements at least for the outdoor BBQ and breakfast that I tried. I heard that the Chinese restaurant on 1st floor is not owned by the hotel but a local chain, I am a little disappointed by the Chinese restaurant as well (tried two times).
Also, for the business travelers, if you are one of those that has to have a pub or club close by for the night entertainments, this is probably not the place. There are some stores, bars and restaurants within 15~20 minutes walk from the hotel, but they are not as conveniently located as the St. Regis, Westin or Sheraton Futian in the city.
Overall, a very impressive hotel, I will definitely go again.

Nothing to complain about, it is indeed a wonderful stay. I would like to extend my special thanks to the staff working at Executive Lounge, they are the best crew I have ever met throughout my stays within Starwood hotels so far.

the hotel staff both the front desk manager Justin Hou or the concierge staffs are warm and professional. They helped us with every thing we needed. They made us feel at home and they are like our friends.
This made our stay nice and enjoyable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by twinsw great location, decent food, water supply sometimes unstable
great location - close to beach (private beach), outlet, theme park. chinese restaurant is decent and value for money- though sometimes the food can be very salty and ingredient not very good (e.g. worst australia steak i've had). One thing the hotel can improve is the hot water supply. We experienced no hot water while my family was taking shower - luckily it is summer now

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bill3334 Great experience in Sheraton
Pool and water slide in this resort was great. My kid really enjoyed this. Room condition was quite good with great view. The staff was also very kind. However, the price of restaurant is some what expensive. Seafood BBQ buffet was more than 400RMB / person and this was beyond my expectation. Anyway, it was fatastic experience overall. Thank you for the Sheraton.
