Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It is right on the beach. But, for foreigners most of things you would be interested in doing is on the complete other sode of the beach. Its nice view. People very friendly. It more dorected towards the korean culture not as much towards the foreigners. But overall a mice and clean place. Would reckommend for people who wasnt to experience more directly with korean culture.

Amazing Place
This place was absolutely amazing. The only small issue was the finding parking for two American style SUVs. Other than that it was perfect from the food, that amazing rooftop view, down to the courteous Staff.. Going to book another stay here before summer out! Great Place!
