“Resort Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013 via mobile

Make no mistake, this is a resort hotel and as such is necessarily some distance from the centre of town. It's big (as are the rooms) clean in every respect and replete with (2) pools, gym and squash court. And you can rent a 21-speed bike for $200NT and cycle up the coast. It's a very scenic ride.
The distance from town might be a larger problem were it not for the free shuttle bus to/from the train station. It takes about 10 minutes and saves a $180NT cab ride. We took it almost daily.
The breakfast buffet offers a wide variety but (understandably) caters to their primarily Asian clientele.
We were less impressed with the evening buffet in that, in our opinion, it did not offer sufficient value for money. We opted on a couple of evenings for the Chinese dim sum on the 2nd floor.
The staff was welcoming - and for a large hotel, that's a real plus. And in typical Taiwanese fashion, polite beyond measure. We did find, in almost every transaction, overcoming the language barrier would prove difficult. But with good humour (on both sides) and some innovative interpretation, the difficulty would be resolved. Front desk staff was quite fluent in English.
Overall, a good spot for some R&R.

Room is clean and comfortable. There are various indoor and outdoor facilities for kids (mine is ~5yrs) to play around for the whole day.

People are friendly and able to provide advice on nearby sightseeing.

The buffet is just ok, as there aren't many choices. I'd rather go to downtown and try other local flavors.

This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel. Large, comfortable, clean rooms, but a bit sparse. Wi-fi is decent and large grounds, but a bit unkempt. Large pool. Hotel restaurant serves a buffet which is above average. The staff was very helpful. When I wanted to use the gym they even lent me a pair of trainers.

We were there for a night during the 3 day trip in Hualien. The room we had was at the end of the hallway on 15F. Great window view of the beautiful garden and waterfall. As they were fully booked, we didn't hear anything in our room. There's speaker for iPad and DVD player if you rent movies at their shop. We will stay there again for sure.

We visited Hualien in a group of 5 and stayed at parkview hotel. Hotel was excellent in every aspect.

Positives:
Rooms were huge, very clean and well maintained. Staff was cordial, helpful and willing to help at all times. Food was exceptionally good, the Chinese restaurant on 2nd floor is specially recommended. Restaurant manager Alex went out of his way to help us and was very willing to make vegetarian dishes for 2 people in the group.
The resort has a huge swimming pool and club house, both were well maintained. We would usually play snooker or TT after dinner.
Hotel staff arranged for our pickup and dropoff and there were no problems.

Negatives :
None really, in every aspect the place far exceeded our expectations.

Room Tip: Try to get room with view of mountains, they are breathtaking.

This is one of my best stay in taiwan. This is a big child friendly hotel. There are parks, children playground, indoor game rooms. There are so many things to do in the hotel that you rather spend your time in the hotel . There are services to Hualian train station. Not to mention there is a wide spread of buffet (we had breadfast and dinner). The room overlook a nice pool and park. I wish I could stay for another day.
