This depends on your financial ability. Hainan still has a lot of hotels with sea views and low price, and it is worth the money. The price in Dadonghai is not high, there are many hotels, but some hotels are old. If you really want to come to Hainan for a holiday, it is best to make a reservation in advance. The more you go back, the room will be better, and the price will gradually become higher.
