Convenient location in GuJeju, right by the sea, 10 mins drive from the Airport. Walking distance to the local restaurants (mostly charging exorbitant tourist prices) and one block from e-Mart where you can get everything you need.
The hotel complex was huge, completed with casino and convention center. Free parking for hotel guests at basement garage. The structure and decor were typical of 4-5 star establishments from the 90s. A little outdated.
Check in and out were very swift. Took under 5 mins! Concierge were responsive and helpful.
Guest room and bathroom were quite roomy. I like it that they separated the shower, toilet and washing basin areas. Large windows gave a good view of the town. Though old, the rooms were clean and had adequate amenities (except toothbrushes and toothpaste). I don't understand how a self proclaimed 5 star hotel would not provide something so basic. Also, instead of disposable slippers that are more hygienic, the hotel provided re-usable leather slippers.
Didn't eat the restaurants so can't comment on the quality. The hotel offered complimentary cake slices from their in-hotel deli. We tried the black forest cake and cheesecake. Can't say they were very tasty.
Overall a satisfactory stay. Would recommend it for business or as a layover to and from the Jeju Airport on way to other parts of the island. Seogwipo and Jungmum resort areas are far superior as a base to explore the beautiful Jeju Island.
