“Great place to stay...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2012

This is really a very nice hotel to stay at. The rooms are spotless, and the service is great. They even brought some stuff we forgot in our room to the train station just before we left. The best thing about this hotel is the fact that Juan can speak English very well. He organized everything we asked for without a problem.

The location is very nice and quiet and there is an restaurant close by with very good western food. I am going back tho this hotel without a shadow of a doubt. Definitely, highly recommended, especially if you can speak Mandarin.

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies have better views!

My friend shared with me on this accomodation when she went and I decided to book it.wasnt familiar with hualian but staying there was absolutely great. It's not necessary to stay at hualian city but staying at seven stars bay is a very fantastic location because it is away from the busy city, and a great way to relax.

It's an absolutely great place to stay in. The owner's son, Juan is absolutely great at making u feel at home plus he is very fluent in English and he gives really honest recommendation. I had a night stay there and despite the other b&b are slightly cheaper but this place makes it do worth it.

Very ideal for couples or even family. The rooms are very clean and beds are comfortable enough. Unique interior which makes u feel like ure staying in a coral-like environment. Fantastic stay!

Room Tip: I stayed at the honeymoon suite w a balcony because the price difference was really not so great. Th...

This is the kind of hotel I love -- pretty, uncluttered, ocean view, quiet, clean and comfortable, great shower and run by a caring, friendly family. For those with no Chinese, Juan, of the owner's family, is completely bilingual (he probably speaks other languages, too) and will help with anything you need (transport, etc.) Stay here!

Room Tip: Ocean views are nice!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2011

Hotel has very nice and clean rooms. Remember to get the sea facing room to enjoy sea views in the morning. Bicycle rental and 24 hour cafe with snacks is an innovative way for hotel guests to chill out. Room was adequate for 2 people but if 4 people stay in a family room, it will be a tight squeeze as the room will be a little cramped. Hotel service was very good and the taxi service is reliable and honest. Breakfast is adequate and filling

Negative points would be that the hotel is near the industrial part of town with heavy industries, hence a resort hotel near the industrial part of hualien will not qualify as a romantic resort. Secondly, the choice of food is limited with the seafood restaurant and the goat farm nearby the only dining option. The food there is expensive and not to my liking- hence take a taxi to hualien for dining at 400NTD roundtrip.

Verdict: would stay here again butt only for 2 days the most aand if you have transport arrangement

Room Tip: Sea facing room with half bath tub
