Our family stayed 4d3N at this resort-hotel as part of our trip to China last May 2012. We found the rooms clean and well provided with silk linens and toiletries. Daily housekeeping is done where linens are changed and toiletries, coffee and complimentary bottled water are replenished. The staff are helpful even though they don't speak English. There is always one staff whom they could call who can speak some English and could be of much help especially in asking for directions to be written in Mandarin. You should also ask the staff to call a taxi cab for you so he or she can instruct the driver where you're headed.
The resort's surrounding is ideal for walking and jogging. But the best thing about this resort is its proximity to Badaling Great Wall which can be reached through Bus 919. Taxi fare to the bus station is only RMB10. Bus fare from the station to the Great Wall is only RMB2. A shopping area with local groceries and eateries is also nearby, costing just RMB10 taxi fare. However, credit card use is limited to locally-issued cards. Hence, if you're short of RMB for your meals, you can just eat in the resort's restaurant which serves delicious Chinese dishes at reasonable price and accepts visa & mastercard.
Coming from Beijing city proper, the best way to reach the resort is through Bus 919 at Deshengmen station. Bus fare is around RMB12. It will take around 1 hour and 15 minutes to reach the resort which is almost the end station. The resort is well-known in Yanquing county and drivers of Bus 919 are very familiar with it. Only, make sure that the resort's name and location are written in Mandarin in order to show these to the bus and taxi drivers since they can not speak and read English.
