This is a well run hotel with a good swimming pool, large comfortable rooms and good views. Initially it may seem a bit out of the way but on reflection the location was perfect. You can get an airport limousine bus service to the world cup stadium and it is only five minutes in a taxi from here. The number five bus service is less than a ten minutes walk and goes to Seogwipo in one direction or Jungmun post office in the other direction (although reception told me I would have to walk all the way to the world cup stadium to get a bus). Although taxis are also cheap and you should cost you no more than 7,000KW to Segowipo or 12,000 to Jungmun resort.
There are great views from the rooms over the swimming pool and out to sea. The rocky shoreline and the offshore island add to the attractiveness of the area. However, it is possible to swim in the sea near here, walk along the sea front towards for a few minutes towards Segowipo and you will come to an abandoned swimming pool made of concrete. However, if you follow the path around this you will come to a small set of concrete steps into the sea where a natural sea pool has been created. This protects you from the waves when swimming and some fish come into the area so it is pleasant to snorkel. The sea front is part of the Olle trial and you can go for some pleasant walks along the coast.
The food in the hotel is good (Korean and Western) and reasonable priced. They will bring drinks and burgers / sandwiches / salads to the poolside during the day. There is one children's pool and one deeper adult pool and a hot Jacuzzi. Everything is kept very clean and the pool is very well maintained (I say this as an ex-lifeguard).
However, it was frustrating to have to choose between set menus for breakfast. I would recommend the sea urchin soup combination but in truth I would have preferred to have eaten the Korean fish and the western eggs together rather than choose between them.
If there could be information about public transport available and more choice at breakfast then this could be my ideal htel.
