        Small details could make a big difference”

        I loved our visit to the Hotel Aqua Palace. However, there was not enough hot water for our showers and the hand held shower did not work in our room. The water park was a lot of fun (although quite pricey at 15,000 KRW each) but I wish there had been more signs in English. I also wish the 15,000 KRW was good for multiple entries into the park. The location was great. The staff was helpful, even assisting at the curb when taxis were needed. Very nice staff all around.

        Beach view, accessabiltiy, clean

        Although a 5 star hotel and one of the hardest to get a reservation to during peak season, there wasn't too much special about this place aside from the outer façade. Rooms were clean and comfortable, however the bathrooms were small and lacking as well as weird elevators.

        Waterpark in hotel, across the street from beach and close to restaurants

        We stayed right before the high season so not as many people and price was better. The water park wasn't completely up and running but good enough and our 9-year old enjoyed it. More importantly, we had a sea and city view and the water was right across the street from the beach. Also, there were many restuarants to pick from a short walk away and other attractions a short taxi ride away. We had to change rooms because no hot water but, after that, it was a perfect place for a short stay on our way to Jeju.

        Paying for the location”

        location, skybar, proximity to beach

        The hotel is situated in a fantastic location, a few steps from a famous beach. The sky-bar looks out over magnificent views, and the neighbourhood is a great one. The condition hotel is pretty poor; my fifteenth-floor room had great views but also a constant wet patch bit of carpet just outside the bathroom, which the maids simply covered with towels. The carpets are in a terrible condition. Ultimately, not really worth the money I paid for, especially as 150,000KRW more would have got me the same amount of nights in the INFINITELY superior Hyatt Hotel that you can see in the distance.

        dated hotel... good location”

        location, location, location

        Hotel is in a great location, so depending on the price you pay, it may be a good choice. Water park , slides etc are expensive, sauna is not bad for the price... a bit dangerous with many many slippery floors.... ridiculous to have a cheap "has been local brand" coffee shop in the 1st floor... Tom and Toms? .. kindergarden coffee? Bathroom is large but wooden (yes, wooden that get rotten and moldy)... doors open to bedroom.. kind of hard to see what they were trying to do here.... view to ocean from tub? strange.... carpets were wet from someone leaving window open on previous stay... all ceilings have pock marks.. kind of scary to think that building may fall down since there are so many maintenance issues... While staying here... renovations were going on the the 19th floor lounge and the workers blocked one elevator to take some strange crumbled partial bricks up to that floor... hope those were not support bricks...

        Barely Giving My Recommendation”

        I am barely giving this hotel my recommendation. The ONLY reason I would recommend this hotel is due to the location and the price for the hotel. If it were not for those two factors I would never stay here again. First of all the pool/water slide there is a $20 admission per person. If you wanted to use the gym it was $10 per person. We stayed in the "city view" room and our windows were completely covered with this film that prevented any natural light or view. The elevators were UNBELIEVABLY slow. Trying to get extra towels was an extremely painful process. The beds were very firm. Oh, and the hallway had this motion sensor light so anytime anyone got up to use the bathroom the light illuminated the entire room. It has appeared they may have recently renovated but did it rather cheaply. Hope this helps.

        poor quality and overpriced hotel”

        location, shower power, view from room

        The hotel was not clean (dirty carpet and dirty bathroom floor). The internet was intermittent. Breakfast, gym, swimming pool etc was not included in the price meaning that the price paid is JUST for the room and in my opinion, is completely overpriced for what you get. The headboard on one of the beds was half way off the wall, posing a safety risk. I would not recommend this hotel.
