Booked this hotel even though review was quite bad as it had beautiful view. When we arrived, hotel was actually closed down and staff didn't mention to me when I called up to confirm the booking one week before arriving. Shift to another building which was still under construction and was given 2 quad rooms on level 20. View was... More

We were given a good offer of NT 3600 for the family room (2 double bed that the 4 of us sleept very comfortably) that includes breakfast, dinner and full return ferry tickets (some hotel offer on 1-way or only within the pier area). The regular price for the same set of dinner was NT 800, and ferry ticket at... More

The hotel is located in one of the vantage points in Sun Moon Lake. The view from some of its rooms is spectacular and breathtaking. When compared with other hotels in the area, El Dorado is a bit cheaper. Still, I don't find the hotel worth the price they ask for. The hotel is very old. What makes it worse... More

This hotel is in poor condition and the staff, although very nice and keen to please, have no idea of standrards. After rejecting the first room offered, we were upgraded to one of their best rooms. This was still inadequate for the price paid (2300TWD) compared with Taipei, but this is an expensive place, for some reason. The rate included... More

Stayed in for 2 nights during Dec 2010 with my kids, husband and mum. Booked a family room with 2 king size bed. The view is good with view of the lake and hills. The hotel is also situated in the "central" location nearby to the Tourist Information Centre. But staying in is a horrible experience. The aircon isn't cold... More

My personal favourite is the bright room with beautiful view of the lake. The hotel is situated at the right habour where you get to see the most unblocked part of the lake. The hotel name is slightly confusing. It's not known as the English name but In Chinese, it's called the 水沙莲. Dinner and breakfast are both provided but... More
