We are government employees living and working in South Korea. We booked our stay at Muju over the Thanksgiving break to try to avoid the overcrowding that occurs at all Korean "theme parks/resorts" on the weekend. We were very excited to relax in the hotsprings and eat at the international/western restaurants.
Here is a breakdown of our disappointments:
Hotsprings-Closed-only open from Dec-Mar
Restaurants-Dominos Pizza (the Korean version, not American), a German restaurant, and about 6 Korean restaurants/Lotterias, ALL OVERPRICED
Hotel room-we stayed in the family hotel in the Silver room where we thought we were getting 2 double beds & kitchenette. We got a kitchette and one hard queen bed and 2 single sleeping mats for the floor--yes, I know this is Korea and should be expected, but it didn't improve our horrible night sleep
Service-They have a wonderful resort map that is only in Korean. So, it is useless to English speakers. Very few people spoke English, even at the front desk.
What didn't disappoint us:
The view from our hotel room
The gondola ride, while overpriced and the only thing we could find to do, was fun with an amazing view. Plus, it stops at the top where we got off and explored the mountain.
The Gelato stand in the Cafeteria- authentic and worth the extra won!
We actually ended up leaving early to drive home and sleep on our nice soft American mattresses. We felt that good sleep was worth the Korean Won lost on one night's stay.
