5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I heard complaints of the place being very crowded and expensive during the peak-time. I went there late August and it's was absolutely fine. No crowds, everything is clean, the building is modern. And the ocean is exactly like on the picture, very close. So I definitely liked it.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
복도와 방에 곰팡이 냄새가 심각할 정도로 가득했음. 발코니에 담배꽁초 3-4개 떨어져 있었으며, 담뱃재랑 담뱃잎도 옆에 많이 있었음. 머리카락이 많은 곳에서 발견됨. 바닥에 모래가 너무 많았음. 화장실은 물떼가 가득했음. 전체적으로 이게 호텔인지 의심이 들 정도로 위생 상태 최악이었음. 요즘과 같은 코로나 시대에 호텔측에서 이런식으로 관리를 해도 되는지 정말 걱정스러움.

Great location! Excellent service when calling the concierge. Beautiful view from Ocean Tower. Unfortunately, they did not clean our room during our stay (3 days/2 nights) while we were out all day.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
You need to buy hotel amenity. They even charge for extra room towel. Ths hotel is really stingy and not organized. Surprisingly room rate is also expensive. I'M NOT sure where the value goes. Highly NOT recommend.
