We travelled to Yangshuo with a large group of friends. The Riverside Retreat was a beautiful place. The children in our party loved the pool and grounds and the adults loved the delightful gathering places where we could get together and enjoy stories of the day over a cold beer. We would recommend this hotel, it was a haven from...

I stayed at Riverside retreat in October 2016 with two of my friends. The place was fantastic! It is a small family run business and they truly care about their guests. The hotel is in need of some repairs and updates but it is very clean and the place has very nice relaxed vibe. We arrived in the height of...

We really enjoyed this hotel, we had a room on one of the higher floors and had a beautiful view. What's awesome is the hotel is a good 20 mins away from the main town, which means its tranquil, peaceful, and quiet, far away from the Chinese stores, restaurants, lights, and crowds. The food was excellent, we ate there every...

Lovely stay, wish we had stayed longer. We got a free upgrade to a bigger room on arrival. The staff were fantastic and nothing was too much trouble, It was a nice antidote to the madness of Yangshuo town being across the river but easily accessible by ferry (2 yuan) or by taxi (40-50 yuan)

This place is absolutely beautiful. The hotel, the courtyard, the restaurant and open eating areas, the lovely gardens with little side areas with benches, swing seats, fish pond and swimming pool have all be styled to offer delightful secluded 'holiday moments'. The views are amazing. Family run by the friendliest lovely people who went out of their way to organise...

The photos shown in assorted websites are accurate. It is a family run hotel, quiet and clean. We had courtyard room with the view across to Yangshuo and not a sound of disco could be heard...only roosters, cicadas and birds. 15 minutes walk to ferry and 1 yuan fare to town. No other restaurants nearby, but they are good cooks....

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights and we totally loved it here. We booked a family room but upon checking in they upgraded us to two rooms saying that it would be more comfortable for us, this was a lovely gesture. What makes this hotel outstanding are the lovely staff here, a family run hotel and always here...

We arrived there in a rainy week (unfortunately!), but lucky us the place and all the family are just amazing and we took off 2 days, relaxing and eating local food. You can walk around the hotel and get to the river and enjoy the local community that is nice and open to foreigners. At the Hotel they all speak...

We stayed at the Riverside Retreat for 5 days, a group of 4 teachers and 12 students approx 18 years old. And had a great stay at this hotel ! The location is very nice, countryside just outside the busy city of Yangshuo, with a nice view on the mountains and the city. We ate very well at the hotel....
