This hotel is perched up in a hill so you get 365 degrees of Hualien and the ocean. I would recommend walking around hotel grounds to take full advantage.
The rooms are a bit dated. Decoration is a mish mash of things: tropical, fantasy (knights & princesses). It's like they want a theme but just go 1/2 way and not executing it fully.
The hotel lobby is very grand. But I think service is lacking. A few service people were joking around at the bakery and yelled down to another service person at the buffet restaurant. The staff is just not trained too well.
I had to do laundry and housekeeping did send small laundry detergent to my room. I thought that was very thoughtful.
