My husband and I just visited this property over the weekend, and we are Lifetime Platinum/Titanium members- which lets you know how much we've travelled and stayed at Marriott hotels. This hotel is conveniently located and very clean. The staff was kind to upgrade us to a suite, which was spacious and modern. However, we will NOT be returning and wouldn't recommend this hotel to our friends (especially child-free couples) for the following reasons:
1. There is no designated area for adults that is free from the screaming and playing of small children. There is a section of the pool that is clearly marked "Adults Only", but it is full of families with children and the policy is not enforced. If you are wanting to lay out in the sun or go for dip where it is quiet and relaxing, you won't find such a place at this resort.
2. There is ONE restaurant that serves breakfast and unless you want to eat a buffet between 6:30-7:00am, be prepared to stand in a 45-min line that wraps around the corner and extends down the hallway. It's absolutely ridiculous and poor planning on the hotel's part. This was our main complaint.
3. The casino's restrooms wreak of cigarette smoke and smell, yet nothing seems to be done to correct the situation.
4. The hotel will not allow you to borrow their pool towels for the beach. Like other island resorts, they should implement a sign-out system where we sign out towels using our name and room#, and in the event the towels aren't returned, the guest is simply charged for them. This ensures that the guest will have a towel for the beach AND the hotel will have their towels returned to them.
There are many beautiful boutique hotels nowadays in Jeju that are more affordable than these big-name resorts, while offering competitive amenities. We will be opting to go that route on our next trip to the island.
