This hotel is off the beaten path. It does have a jacuzzi in every room, and I think a small kitchen (mine did). You get a full breakfast buffet (8-10), but then you are on your own. They have a very small store in the basement so you can buy 'noodles' and other such things and cook for yourself, or you can take a walk into the small nearby town, which is maybe 1/2 mile away.
I think something funny is going on at this hotel. Maybe under new management. The rooms are clean, but the hallway rugs are all warped and stained, like it was flooded. There seems to be a shortage of personnel, you have to go to the desk to get someone to unlock the store. While they show pictures of a spa on-line and have a big sign in the lobby, it is not opened unless you make an appointment at least 2 hours in advance. (I did this and got a great Thai massage and facial.) The 'business center' is an empty room with a desk and chair. There is no art on the walls. The pool was being filled when I arrived, although I doubt people do much outdoor swimming on Jeju until June. They expect you to wash any dishes you use in your room. All rooms have balconies but no furniture (you can drag out your dining chairs).
It is right off the #10 Olleh trail, which is great, because when I arrived at 1, they would not check me in until 3 (I must have forgotten). So I just left my bags at the front desk and took off on the trail for a couple hours.
This makes this hotel very hard to rate. If you want solitude with easy access to olleh trail and a nice private beach (not the first one you find, the one another 100 or so yards west), you'll be fine. If you have a car, it would help for eating - or grocery shopping.
All the help was nice and did their best, but spoke very little english, I was told be to be at the desk at 6:50 AM for my taxi to the airport, but the desk didn't open until 7 (if my flight was earlier, I would have been in a fix), eventually they showed up and called for a taxi. Overall I think this place is overpriced until they get their act together-almost like a very fancy hostel.
