All my properties including cash, passport, phone, and clothes were stolen from the locker at the Hotel Aqua Place sauna. The locks were electronic with no signs of force entry so it is certain to be an inside job. Despite having multiple CCTVs on premise, management were reluctunt to look at the footages and claimed they couldn't find out who... More

Not much more to say... No breakfast, no love. Two points only because the charwomen are making the best out of it, which isn't good enough tough... The spa and the aquapark including the restaurant are bad too. Oh yeah, the view is great...

Stayed for 2 nights.This hotel was in the center of the beach, right on the beach. But the rooms do need a freshening - our carpet had burn marks and was unsightly and bed was hard (Korean tradition?). The room, however, didn't have a bad smell and our bathroom was clean and mold free. Being May, we opened the windows... More

This hotel looks better on the outside than inside. It's a great location right on the beach with beautiful views, esp at night. The rooms are old & in need of new carpeting. Our A/C did not work well until the night. Son, at front desk was helpful with adapters, & got us breakfast vouchers. Would not stay here again

We stayed at the Hotel Aqua Palace for New Year's Eve 2013/14. We were lucky enough to get a special deal for a sea view room.. The room was great. It was clean and nicely decorated. We loved the extra touches, such as wine glasses, free hand warmers and blankets, great toiletries and large towels. The best thing about the... More

Paid 218,000 for a triple room right on the beach. Location is great...walk right out and hit the beach but when we arrived, they first gave us a room that hadn't been cleaned. Changed rooms to a triple with a great view of the beach. Room however is still dirty and has an odd smell. Took a while for AC... More

the view is good. The molds grew into 1 inch wide band all round the bathtub and basin made me sick. Stale room. Really run down. If you want budget hotel go for ibis. Not this 5 star disguise which is not qualified for 2 stars. The lift had a temporary vampire red velvet rose draped out of horror movies.... More

Needs some repairs and updating. For the price the location is great, nice view from the window, but the room is dated and hotel could use some repairs.
