Stayed two nights here. First impression when we saw the hotel from outside is it looks quite grand. However, upon entering the room, it really looks dated. The furniture & beds look rather old. The hotel is also not situated in city centre.
The good points about this hotel are the large compound with waterfall landscape, large swimming pool, sporting facilities (squash court, rock climbing, table tennis, pool table, gym, sauna, kids playground, etc) & relatively good buffet breakfast. Hotel guests are free to use/enjoy all the facilities. Noticed that there are lots of tourist groups (mainly from HK, mainland China & locals) staying in this hotel. As such, during busy hours, there can be long queues at the buffet counters. We use this hotel as our base to explore Taroko Gorge National Park & the east coast tourist attractions between Taitung & Hualien.
Free Wifi inside the room but Internet connectivity could be intermittent at times. As we arrived quite late (after more than 5 hours trip going over the mountainous terrain of Taroko National Park from Taichung), we had buffet dinner at the 2nd floor restaurant. Dinner was just okay, not pricy and service is good. We got a high floor room that faces the Pacific Ocean - providing a splendid view in the morning! If you want a quiet, comfortable hotel with in-house sporting facilities, this is the one!
