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... More

The hotel rooms are rather old but they are clean. View is excellent and food is not bad too. Hotel service is so so and tends to inconvenience guests for own inefficiency in operation. They were pushy on getting us to have our dinner buffet which is included in room rate at 5:30pm for both nights but we refused to... More

After a blissful stay in Kenting (Kending) at Caeser Park Hotel - we drove to the East part of Taiwan - Hualien. The drive was indeed beautiful with the Pacific Ocean towards our right and the mountain ranges on the left. Finally after about 4 1/2 hours of drive (with multiple sightseeing stops on the way) - we reached Hualien... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More
