This is resort country and luxury accommodation far outnumbers those in the budget category. That said, the over-saturated market means you can find good deals – upwards of 50% to 75% – outside peak times. There are hostels in Hǎikǒu and Sānyà and increasingly in areas popular with cyclists. The ‘civilised villages’ campaign is having an impact in Hǎinán, and as a result a number of rural villages now have guesthouses. Still, some travellers report having trouble finding places that accept foreign tourists outside the bigger cities.
