“relaxing stay”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We only stayed overnight and checked out the next morning, so didn't really took full advantage of the hotel. The pool area is huge, lots of dif restaurants, you can rent bikes and ride around town.

We were upgraded to a villa. It has it's own entrance, private pool, 2 stories, living room/kitchen, and hot springs in the bathrooms. Wish we had more time to fully enjoy the hotel. Very serene surroundings.

Room Tip: go for a villa, they are spacious and perfect for larger families or groups of friends.

Papago International Resort is set amongst some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Taiwan. It is located in Chishang, which features a stunning valley of rice fields set between two large mountain ranges.

The hotel itself is a large, family-friendly resort with many hot springs, spa and pool options to enjoy. It offers a great Taiwanese style breakfast buffet, with Western options as well.

The rooms, while extremely spacious, are some of the most outdated I've seen in a while. Cold, blue tile floors, thin sheets, powder blue and brown bathroom, etc. It also did not feel 100% clean. The wifi was unusable.

That being said, the location is just spectacular. Rent a bike outside the hotel for a leisurely ride on Chishang's meandering bike path. It is relatively traffic free as you ride through the pastoral landscape, passing local farmers, lily ponds, lush green rice fields and small streams. Highly recommend for a memorable, off-the-beaten path experience.

This hotel was great!!! The room & toilet was spacious!! There are also many facilities like a gym, snooker & table tennis room, karaoke room, bar, game room!!! You can also rent a bicycle out side the hotel & stroll around the area :) The swimming pool was big!!! But I didn't get to swim in it...as we must wear a swimming wear & CAP as it is a international resort...I don't wear a cap when I am swimming:) but they were selling swimming caps in the gift shop...it was not worth it to buy the cap....so I decided to play table tennis on the second floor instead :) it was fun!!! There were quite a amount of channels on the tv, but mostly chinese channels...anyway it was a great day at papago international resort :) definitely a international 5 ★ hotel ^_^

First time in my life I got to stay in this 5 - 6 star resort when I travel with my groups of friends last year. This is really relaxing and nice resort. The resort really have nice view when it's come to evening time.
Got to know from the resort staff that one of the taiwan drama (Hi My Sweetheart) was shooting in this resort.

Stayed at Papago Resort in Dec 2011 with my family as part of the round the Taiwan Tour.

Breakfast 6.5/10
- reasonable spread, not much variety and quality of food is acceptable.

Hotel Staff 8/10
- Overall the experience and interaction with the hotel staff is good. Staff is polite and professional.

Hotel Room 7/10
- huge room but the quality and finishes is not fantastic. Thumbs up for those who prefer to have huge room.
- Overall, the room is clean and comfortable.

TV Programme 6/10
Not much varieties and choices.

Swimming Pool 7/10
- Pool is huge. We didnt use the pool and the hot spring as it was winter and cold during then.

Facilities 7/10
- we used the pool table, small arcade room, playground, sufficient for family fun.
- as we only stayed there for 1 night, i am sure there are failities that we didnt explore. One of which is the bicycle ride round the resort.

Gym 3/10
- gym?? what gym? I cannot recall what was the gym equipment available in there. I was there but ended up doing push ups for my workout.

Overall Experience 6.5/10

If given a choice, I may opt to try other resort in Taiwan.
One of the best resort that we have stayed is Evergreen Resort in Taiwan.

You want a nice stop on your way to or from Hualien and enjoy the area? Hotel Papago is as luxurious as you can get in the Rift Valley. It has everything you want, restaurants, pools, big rooms, soft (!) beds, great service, good food, balcony, gaming rooms. I guess because there weren't enough guests, we were offered roomservice for breakfast the first night. A good service. The buffet on the second morning was great, a lot of options to chose from. We had diner in the western restaurant (twice) no buffet but a 4 course meal (3 options per course). The food was prepared very well, with a lot of attention. Wifi was free, without a code, but not very stable (our room was located at the end of long hall).

Hotel facilities are superb. Staff are friendly & with good manners. Its Chinese restaurant food are delicious too. Hotel is built in between the padi fields & the view is surrounded by hills throughout a vast terrain. Nevertheless, there's nothing much to venture outside during the night except listening to local band playing at the lobby. Swimming pool is beautiful. Our room is very big with 2 soft king size bed. Hardly can find hotel with such big size bed. We also like its Catia brand bathtub. It's cute & small enough for a person to dip in, like "big baby tub". The hotel also offers tourist bicycle facilities. If have spare time, can try cycling around Chih-Shang bicyle path.
