“Family Resort!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We checked in Saturday and checked out Sunday!
It was a first time for us and our 16 month old.

Property clean & well kept, regular shuttles to the Ocean Park (at bottom of hill), a nice choice of restaurants on site, spacious public area to walk around.

Lots of families there during our stay.
The property is a wonderful place for young children!
Indoor pool(s) (open all year round i believe) with one at 50cm for children.
Exercise room (for adults). Well padded toddler play room with a variety of toys!
Coin Op Video game arcade with Initial D ver 3 (2 player) in basement!

We stayed in the south wing with a balcony and view of the ocean.

Breakfast Buffet was amazing!
Lots of choices. Get there early - long lines after 8am

We did not stay at this hotel but we got upgraded lunch here due to bad service at Bali Suites Hotel the night before.
the location quite far from town but its ok because guests so happy here. We had bento japanese menu for our lunch, simple but nice.
after lunch guests went outside of this hotel and take picture.
Awesome.... breathtaking ocean view...

I stayed in a room with two single beds and a sofa bed. Room is very spacious and quiet, has comfy beds and a hot tub. Pillow was a bit too soft for me and there weren't any extras in the closet. The view is breathtaking and there are many shops in the hotel. However, the hotel is very far from other attractions and from the city. Breakfast was ok, not very impressive. I would recommend staying for a night or two, but probably not longer than that.

We booked this hotel because our daughter wanted to see the dolphin she swam with 2 years ago. The theme park no longer offers this activity but the hotel receptionists made a big effort to communicate with the theme park and my daughter was given an exclusive chance to see (not to swim with) the dolphin again. I cannot praise highly enough how helpful the hotel staff were. We were not interested in the theme park and it was raining, so we stayed in the indoor pool and enjoyed the splendid view of the Pacific Ocean from the big window next to the jaccuzzi. We also had an ocean view from our comfortable room with a good size balcony. As mentioned by other reviews it is located in an isolated mountain area (so may be good to bring some snacks with you just in case but the hotel offers a room service for fried noodles/rice until late but not cheap). I would recommend this hotel as a side trip to Hualien/Hualian especally for family with young kids.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with an ocean view.

The hotel feels like a Disney version of what a Chinese person would think a luxury European hotel would look like. It's striving to be a 5-star hotel. It has clean, spacious rooms and beautiful views. A family member booked the place and paid for us, so I can't comment on the value. It's a bit far from town, so not much to do at night.

The best parts were the pool/jacuzzi (awesome views!) and the breakfast buffets --- lots of choices (Western, Taiwanese, and Japanese) and everyone (kids and grandparents) was happy and full. The free shuttle to and from the Ocean Park was convenient. My kids (9 and 11) enjoyed exploring the amusement park.

FarGlory is known as a luxury resort, a getaway for families and couples. It sits atop the city of Hualien with a view of the ocean, which is beautiful. My husband and I thought it was great the first night but we did get bored pretty quickly. It's so far away from the town we felt trapped. Instead of the hotel all-you-can-eat breakfasts (which was mostly Western, by the way) we would have much rather eaten at food stalls and hole-in-the-walls in town and experiencing the local life. The Sea World-like facility was closed for the winter when we were there, which was a bummer.

It was nice the pool and jacuzzi was empty so we got to enjoy it all to ourselves.

Great heated pool and hot spa befitting 5 star status. View splendid. But far from city centre. No shops nearby unless you are contented to be stuck in hotel after dark eating over priced food when there is better delicious stuff downtown at a fraction of the price. Their 3 day promotion package was not attractive. Breakfast for 2 days only, not 3 as expected. Ocean park entry inclusive but suitable for younger kids, older ones will be bored with the kiddy rides. Great animal educational shows though for the family...
