Each destination is given an index, which is based on over 140 million hotel reviews and ratings aggregated from over 200 booking sites worldwide.

Sanya in China boasts the most liked hotels in the world, with an index of 86.94%. The city on Hainan Island has become a popular tourist destination in recent years, due to its tropical climate. The destination contains a large number of high rise resort hotels, which are typically praised for their value for money, excellent facilities, friendly service and beautiful location.

Value for money seems to unite these destinations, with eight of the top ten boasting an average price per night of less than £100 during 2014. Hanoi, in second place, has an average price per night of just £39. This suggests good value plays a key role in determining hotel popularity, with guests more likely to rate a hotel favourably if they feel like a good deal has been achieved.
