    Good Ocean View in a New HotelBooked a full ocean view and it had a nice view. Kindness was good overall except one cleaning lady at the gate. She was not smiling at us - which I can ignore but she was frowning at us with her broom like she is a dictator in her own country. This was a whole new bad experience to have in a good hotel. Other than that, service was fast and good. Other reviews mention Netflix but you need your own account to watch Netflix.

    Very goodPros: - The location is very nice. Not too far of a taxi ride from the station and close to the beach. - The room is still new and very clean. - The bed is nice and big. Cons: - The fridge wasn't that cold. - Asked the front desk for ice at 11pm and they said it was not available after 10pm and suggested buying it at a convenience store. (They did call the store for us to see if they still had ice. But I expected full service from a 5-star hotel.) - The view was okay. It was not a full ocean view but could still see it if from one angle in the room or when you went out to the balcony. - Accidentally left a couple of T-shirts in the room and called the evening that we checked out. A representative called the next day but said nothing was found. Overall: The hotel itself is big, new, and clean. The staff is friendly, but also slightly awkward perhaps due to lack of experience. Lastly, I expected better service from a 5-star hotel.

Hotel has a small but nice outdoor swimming pool. They provide warm water pool in cold weather. Inside the hotel also have convenient store and also have some nice restaurant near by.

    nice new hotel right on the beach, only a 6,000 taxi from the ktx station. you have to walk a while down the beach to reach most of the restaurants if you don't have a car. we were hoping the pool would be open or at least have water for photos, but it was drained when we were there!

    Using the elevators was a nightmare. Whoever designed the hotel did not consider how to handle the traffic during busy times. You will need to wait 10-20 minutes just to go down or up

    룸 컨디션 좋았고, 뷰도 좋았어요. 다만, 아고다에서 Sea View로 예약하고 갔는데 Partial Sea View로 예약됐다며 말씀하시더라구요. (아고다와 호텔 간의 문제로 보여짐...) 황당했지만, 다행히 여유객실이 있어서 Sea View로 체크인 도와주셨고 큰 문제는 없었습니다. 다음부터는 이런 문제 없도록 신경써주시기 바랍니다. 수영장은 가볍게 놀만했구요 so:s bar?에 간단히 칵테일 하러 들어갔는데, 밝은 레스토랑 분위기... 였습니다^^;

    Not to bad. If the price goes up, it will not come.”

    If not promotional price, I will not use it. Breakfast package is not recommended. You must stand in a line more than 100 meters in the morning. I had breakfast in the queue for more than an hour. If the room is cheap, eating breakfast at any hotel next door is good for mental health. If the facilities are out of date or if you stay at a fixed price, you will have to think again.
