Nice Hotel, but be aware...Posted Jun 13, 2012 on Hotels
I had a one night layover at Incheon airport and found a good rate for this hotel. It is on the ocean, which seemed like fun, so I tried it for one night. Overall, it is a very nice hotel. All the rooms face the ocean, so that is quite nice. The hotel staff speak limited English, but were nice and tried to be helpful. Here are some things to be aware of: the hotel restaurant was closed when I was there (early June). The cafe had very limited hours, so the bottom line was that I could not eat dinner or breakfast at the hotel. I walked around looking for a nice restaurant that would take a credit card, but could not find one. There are lots of restaurants along the beach front, but no one speaks English and I couldn't even find a menu with pictures that would allow me to "point and order". The bottom line is that I ended up going to the 7-11 across the street to buy sandwiches and chips for my meals. I expected a hotel this nice to have better in-house food services.

resort near the beach + near the Incheon airportPosted Oct 27, 2011 on Hotels
This property is a work in progress. A great location and a great view of the Yellow Sea, but there are some glaring 'surprises' that will ultimately affect this hotel's rating. The 20-minute free shuttle between the property and the airport is subject to interpretation. Yes, you can be picked up from the airport, but you might have to wait 3 hours; however, their shuttle to the airport leaves hourly. I never did figure that out. The solution is taking a local bus and hoping that you are dropped off at the correct nearby location so that you can walk the rest of the way. Also, do not shower until you check to make sure you have towels - we didn't and management seemed surprised that we would mention the absence of towels. If I understood correctly, they expected travelers to have their own towels. We could not get the air conditoning to work, so the alternative was to leave the sliding door onto the balcony open so that sea breeze could move the air. Finally, if you are a light sleeper, make sure you are well rested before checking in. Fireworks are launched form the nearby beach until 2 am and resume shortly after 5 am. The room rates were very high, considering the value and quality of service.

Hard bedsPosted Oct 25, 2011 on Hotels
It felt as though we were sleeping on 2x4s set about a foot apart. After a very long flight from the US, we were tired, but unable to get comfortable enough to sleep. I understand that beds are considerably harder in Asia, but this was far beyond hard. Besides the fact that the bed was almost unusable, there were people on the beach below who set off fireworks all night long. We had a reservation for the return trip and cancelled it. The hotel was quite nice, but about 20 min from the airport with a shuttle that runs at limited times. It meant that we had to take a cab to catch our outbound flight to Singapore (about $25). This negated the cost savings in booking it over other hotels nearer the airport.

Great hotel in good beach locationPosted Jul 18, 2011 on Hotels
We fancied a few days on the beach and this hotel is conveniently located near to Incheon airport. They have a free airport shuttle too. The hotel is a very good standard and the reception staff spoke good English. The rooms all have a beach view and a small kitchenette with stove, fridge and microwave. There is an on-site mini mart for all types of groceries. We booked a room for 2 adults, then rang the hotel direct and asked for a 2nd bed for the children. They gave us a room with a double and a single bed at no extra cost. The hotel also has an ATM but it didn't accept my UK mastercard, so I was fortunate that I'd already got cash out of the ATM at the airport. But they also exchanged USD, EUR and GBP cash at the reception. There is no hotel pool as such, but you can pay to use the facilities of the Waterpark which is part of the same building. On the beachfront (which is a 2 minute walk) there are loads of fresh fish restaurants. They have a hot coal BBQ thing in the middle and you can cook your own shellfish on it - lovely food and friendly staff. The beach is very nice, but not a palm tree in sight (some of the hotel pictures have had lots of greenery added by photoshop!) On one of the days we took the local bus (#302 or #306) from outside the hotel back to the airport and got on the train to Seoul. Had a nice day out and then returned to Incheon and used the hotel shuttle again to get back to the hotel. A great hotel in a great location - highly recommended.
