    Not worth the money.

    The hotel was supposed to be 4 star rated. I paid 5 star plus for a room but got 2 start service. The condition of the hotel considering it was relatively new was poor quality. The real issue seemed to me that the house keeping staff was really short handed. We left the room at 10:20 AM and returned at 3:40 and it was not cleaned. When we were checking in the check-in time was 4 PM which is a bit late although we were able to check in at 3 after waiting for 1.5 hr. The lobby area and all common public areas of the hotel there was no heat so it was cold. I don’t usually leave bad rating but this was one of the worst as compared to the amount of money I paid over 600 USD per night.

    wonderful location but uh uh~~

    Location is excellent. commands excellent view. parking lots are sufficient and wide enough However, it took almost 2 hours just for check-in and lobby was almost jammed with disappointing guests and barking dogs. recommend a separate reception-desk for a guest and a guest-accompanying dog.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great getaway in Korea.

    This is one of the 2 or 3 best hotels in the area. There are not many options other than small cheap hotels and pensions. It’s a little expensive but it’s worth it. Pools, bakery, restaurants, spa and bars. The hotel in situated next to main area, many options for Korean seafood around. For Western food, the hotel restaurant is the best you can get in the area. It gets a little crowded during check in but it was fast. Long line up for breakfast buffet, we had to ask for a refund which they nicely agree to do so. Nice front sea view and a little forest to walk around. Overall it was a good experience and recommended.

    The quality of their service is definitely not like 5 stars hotel. The bell boy did not move the luggage for the customers. I guess it was very crowded with the guests who were checking in. And I couldn't sleep well because of the noise from the leaking water tap in the bathroom. I had to turn off the valve to sleep. Except for that, the room was clean and the ocean view was very nice.

  • 6.0.Good

    The buffet was a bit disappointing. One coffee area, two slow machines, and always a line 8-10 people deep. They definitely need more machines, or they should offer carafes at each table. Wallpaper throughout the hotel is puckering, which made the rooms and hallways look shabby. Pro: 3 minute walk to beach, and plenty of amenities within the hotel property.
