The hotel service is good and friendly from bellboy to room service. My room is cozy and facing the beach with a nice view overlooking the sea n beach and also people fishing with traditional way. The room has a totally transparent bathroom. At first, I was not quite use to the transparent bathroom because of the usual sense of privacy. But, I was all by myself, so why worry. Modern fixture and furniture, but not much international channel or program to choose from when watching TV.
The lounge cafe serves food only in limited hours and a lot of the dishes on the menu are not available. It is a good place where you have a good view of the sunset. Its main restaurant does serve buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner. A wide varieties of dishes to choose from especially when you are in Beihai, Guangxi.
They have an indoor and outdoor pool next to the gym, I used the indoor pool a couple times during my stay with the hotel. the outdoor pool is bigger than the indoor pool while the indoor pool is lined and seems more for lap swimmer. So, good for serious swimmers.
It is right at the beach, so just a 5-10 mins stroll will get you to the beach where you can enjoy fresh breeze while walking on the boardwalk.
For Beihai at Guangxi, I think this is a pretty good hotel as it is in a second or third tier city in China.
Great 5 nights stay at the Furama Beihai.

+Very good and clean swimming pool.
I would stay at the Furama Beihai again for business or pleasure and I absolutely recommend this hotel.
My wife and I spend a relaxed night here on stopover. Hotel is very neat, as to be expected. The staff were very friendly and even spoke some English, which is rare.
All rooms have stunning ocean views. The hotel is easy to find by taxi and is not too far from the tourist area of 'Old Street' (20 min by foot)
The room rate is quite steep, so I was keen to look for differences that make this experience special. The rooms are exquisite, the hotel amenities are awesome: pool, tennis courts, business center, gym etc. as is usual for this class of hotel.
Rates include a fantastic buffet breakfast which is highly recommended. All in all a good stay.
The building is beautiful, the rooms are nice, beds comfortable and pool is nice.
On the downside you have were a swim cap in the pool, which is uncomfortable on so many levels. The hygienic motivation for this seems a bit exaggerated.
The staff is not english speaking, not even in the reception. We spent a few night on other "simpler" hotels where we had no real problems communicating, so this was a surprise.
Most items on the a la carte was not available. Food arrived after long delays and was cold. Final night we tried their evening buffé and that was good.
