“My all time favorite Kenting resort but now loses it's shine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

I have to say this is always my ranked No1 Kenting resort of all time due to its great location and the truly tropical atmosphere. However, we revisited this hotel for our family holidays after 3 years and I am surprised with the terrible food quality especially the breakfast and dinner buffet. Also the indoor decorations are getting quite old and absolutely need some renovation.
Having sat that, they still have the lovely garden, best pool where kids enjoy a lot, and the lovely trial to its half-owned beach.
If possible, get the pool access Garden room. Also try avoid Spring break if you don't fancy for head rocking music and half-naked teens and young adults.

Before I book Caesar Kenting, some friends strongly recommended vacation rental there. It is very popular in Kenting. But in my opinion, I still think hotel is more comfortable and convenient. So, I choose Caesar. It is the best in Kenting. If you want to be there, I highly recommend you choose this hotel and book through their website. They always provide several packages to save your money.
The hotel has a good location. It is located in the beginning of the night market. I spent all nights to walk around and have food during my stay.
For the staffs, they are nice and helpful. I can see the smile always on their face.
For the room, room for couples is slightly small, but others are fine, I recommend you book family room even you are couples. It is bigger at the same price. Of course, you have to sacrifice large balcony.
The breakfast is very good. They have variety choices. Most of all, the coffee machine is great. Cappuccino, mocca, expresso even milk tea all can be made it.
Hotel also provide free shuttle bus service to high speed railway station. It takes 2 hours for single trip journey. So, I feel very convenient to use this free service.
Anyway, if I visit Kenting again, I will definitely choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Family room is bigger

the bar is not that high. We stayed 9(!) days in Kenting, as this was my wife's family reunion. The hotel was renovated recently (2005?) and there were additional rooms being worked on during our stay.

Unfortunately, we ran into some terrible weather, which resulted in us having to spend a lot of time at the hotel itself, rather than at the beach or driving around. As such, we extensively used the facilities. What we noticed is that, aside from the front desk and the cleaning crew, most of the staff members (restaurants, concierge, shops, poolside, children's area) are really not very much into hospitality. To be fair, this seems to be a pattern with other establishments in Kenting, where people really are not very friendly or welcoming. Instead, you get the feeling they are kind of stuck in their jobs and not interested.

There are a few exceptions, including Mike (the front desk GM) who wanted to make sure we had a good time, even if the rest of the hotel or the weather did not cooperate.

The positives - Clean, nice grounds, great pool, children's area (if a bit outdated and under-utilized), the rooms.

The neutral - OK breakfast and dinner buffet, Nice semi-private beach (although the bathrooms were under renovation),

The negatives - Staff Hospitality, Other Restaurants, Weak Organized Programs.

Still, this is the best in Kenting (we did have time to check other places), if you happen to want/need to spend time there.

Room Tip: Ask for a recently renovated room and choose the higher floors.

We spent 3 nights in this great hotel. The first two were spent in a pokey, dark, dingey, un-renovated, extremely shabby room with no side tables, no reading lights (impossible to read in bed) ,no room for the suitcases, 1970's-style stained carpet. The balcony was OK but not enough light to read.
Then on the final night we were upgraded to an infinitely nicer room- renovated, luxurious and chic. It was hard to believe that the two rooms were in the same hotel. It seems to be the case that all the rooms with only one double bed are the dingy, tiny, un-renovated sort, and all the ones with two double beds are the renovated and much bigger ones. Be very careful! The smaller rooms are genuinely horrible. We paid TWD 4400 for the first 2 nights and TWD 4138 on the third night. ( I think we were given such a good discount for the good room as it was on a Wednesday night when the hotel was pretty quiet).
Once you remove the terrible first room from the equation, this is a good hotel (but not quite 5 star). Breakfast and indoor dinner buffets are excellent quality ( we also had the outside BBQ buffet, but the quality and the variety of the foods on offer were not as good as the inside buffet). We were given vouchers to give us 2 for 1 in the restaurants, I think because we were there mid-week.
The gardens are beautifully manicured and the reception area is very elegant.
There is a beautiful beach bar, belonging to the hotel, across the road. Excellent live music every night.
If coming from Kaoshiung, the hotel offers a free shuttle every day at 14.15 from Zoying HSR station (the return bus leaves the hotel at 11.30 every day). It is definitely worth taking as the Kenting Express costs TWD 450 one way of TWD 600 return.

I'm a Malaysian, and I tend to be quite picky and demanding. Our stay was on 21st Feb 2014.
Yes they journey to Kenting is rather tiring. I was getting a bit impatient and really put quite a high expectation for the stay in this hotel to be good which make me travel so far.
And it has proven it really is worth the long journey!!

This is definitely one of the best hotel/ resort that I've been. The room are really spacious. After putting our bags, the staff told us that we can eat the fruits, drink the drinks int he refrigerator and ask for them again if we want. Well, this is the first time I stayed in a hotel that allow guest to get the drinks from the refrigerator for free AND ask for it again! We were lucky to get a seaview and the view was AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! As it was still in February, the wind that was blowing was COLD!! not COOL... ^^"
Room was really worth the money. Did not really notice anything dirty and stain in the room. Swimming pool was ok and you can 'borrow' swimming caps from them. There's a jacuzzi near the swimming pool.
Staff was veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyy helpful and cheerful. Nth to complain about that. For example, we were renting a bicycle and not sure how long we are going to use it, and the staff told us we can go and take it a ride first and pay later after the ride depending on how long it is.

Beach was just across the road. Don't worry, the road is safe, there's not much car there too.
There's children's playground and arcade centre, ping pong tables, etc.. A very good place for families of children.
Breakfast was awesome! There were plenty of good spreads. There were also soy bean milk which surprised me for some reason. What more can you ask for when you can have your slow and good breakfast while enjoying the view of the blue beach... ahhh #IWannaGoBackThere..

Only one complain for me which was, our room balcony was a bit dirty/dusty. Its not dirty bcoz of the leaves from the wind blowing, but more of dusty. Our room wasn't very cold at all. Well I'm not sure if bcoz the outside is colder or the aircond needs service.
During our stay, the staff of the hotel request to collect and tidy up the umbrellas beside the beach around 6pm which is the sunset time.. I think they hotel should only tidy them up after the sunset.
One of the highlights of my first trip to Taiwan..

Overall, my stay at this hotel was very enjoyable. The facilities were quite good - large outdoor pool, nice sized rooms and great facilities including games areas/gym etc.

Another great thing was the free shuttle bus from Zouying Station in Kaohsiung. A very efficient service straight to the hotel!

With 5* hotels it's often the little things that need to be right. In the bedrooms, the finish on furniture was not great for example streaks of paint noticeable on outside of wardrobes. In the shower, there were streaks, obviously missed by the cleaners. In addition when wifi actually worked it was SNAIL pace.

The main downfall of this hotel was customer service. Front desk was ok, but my most notable downfall was at the bar. We waited 15 minutes before a waiter came over (after having to go and look for one twice). When the order was taken it took at least 5 minutes for 2 bottles of beer to arrive. Then when paying, I had to go up to the bar because there wasn't an employee in sight. Eventually one appeared!

Not speaking Chinese seemed to baffle on of the Compass restaurant employees too. When wanting to reserve a table for dinner, he just pointed to his watch as if to say "come back at5:30". Furthermore, the restaurant food was ok, not great if your not a massive fan of fish like me. Perfect for the dessert people though with mountains of desserts on offer.

We visited this hotel on a holiday weekend, perhaps that's why service was lacking, but for a 5* hotel, service should be top notch even at 100% occupancy!

Room Tip: Beach is quite small but close to the hotel. Water sports available but you cannot ride jet ski'...

Just checking into the hotel after traveling 3.5 hours travelling to the hotel. That when then hotel decides to tell us the pool area is closed for maintenance. REALLY??!! They couldn't make that clear on their website or when we make the reservation???? I looked into the website again and the notice for pool closure was hidden in a small notice area of the website that one really needs to click through, What kind of hotel management is this that they need to swindle, lie and cheat the hotel guests. VERY VERY disappointed

Room Tip: Don't come here at all
