The resort is expansive and has a large pool almost 50m in length!! Overall, hotel staff were very friendly, greeting guests, reminded me of hotel staff in America where they are more gregarious. In fact, the hotel had an old school waikiki beach front hotel vibe from the older infrastructure to the Hawaiian shirt wearing staff. Ocean view rooms are definitely worth the upcharge. The resort shows its age but is otherwise a great place to stay. There's even a deer petting zoo located on the grounds. Breakfast buffet was average, nothing special. Direct hotel to beach access via underground path is a plus. I would definitely stay here in the future, especially ideal with young children.

Location: 5 min walk to the busy Kenting street, and the less crowded Xiaowan bay beach is connected via underground tunnel. High speed rail-Kenting express bus stop ends and starts in front of the hotel, and HSR+bus packages are very good deal available on 7-11 ibon machine. Rooms: if you want good seaview and sunset, pay extra for the top 4th floor pool facing side, any lower you may be blocked by the trees. Beds and sheets are okay, and furnishings comfy but old style (not insta worthy, lol). Overall the room, the toilet with separate shower and bathtub (but no bidet), and the balcony are very spacious. Cleanliness is okay, but aircon noise and WiFi speed were just tolerable. Facilities: the 50 meters 130 cm deep pool is the main reason for booking this resort. The water is 20C during Christmas holiday, and crispy clean. A hot tub is next to the pool to relax your muscles after swimming. Kids pool is large, and flotation devices are available for rental. Annex Starbucks and souvenir shop is open during winter, and all other shops are under renovation or not open during winter. All the staff we met were courteous. However, breakfast buffet flavor is healthier and lightly seasoned, which may be not to everyone's taste. My only gripe will be the small kennel with cement flooring enclosing the Formosan sika deers. It's a major attraction for the kids to feed them carrots, but it's just too small for such large animal. I only pray the hotel consider at least herding them to a pasture sometime during the day.

My room was clearly not cleaned under the bed for quite a while. When I asked them to clean, they did not show up at the requested time. The facilities of the resort are good, but this issue is going to make me look to find another place to stay when I am going to Kenting again next month. Pity!

此次入住很幸運的被升等到豪華雙床房,非常感謝福華。此次入住心得如下: Luckily, we had been upgraded to Deluxe Twin which is bigger than what we booked, thanks Howard Beach resort. Here are my comments: 優點 / Advantage: 1. 地點很棒,離大街步行約5分鐘可抵達。 Well located, just 5 minutes walk to Kenting street for foods & beverages, of course you can find other needs there. 2. 所有工作人員的態度都十分的友善及親切。抵達跟離開的時候都下著雨,大廳門口還有開放可倒車到遮雨棚的位置來上下家人及行李。 All the employees in the resorts are very friendly and kind. It was raining while our arrival and departure, they guided us to park under the canopy just outside the lobby for easier getting on/off the car and load/unload luggage. 3. 室外泳池很適合帶小朋友遊玩,配置三個不同地點的救生員+高架椅,讓安全更為加分。還有地下通道直達小灣,避免危險,而且有沖水區可以於遊玩之後稍做簡單的處理。 The outdoor swimming pool is large and safe enough for all ages, with different depths and 3 lifeguards. Also a tunnel to the beach just right at the opposite side of the main road, provided with showers for easy cleaning before go back to the resort. 4. 電梯口附近有配置RO水的水龍頭,十分方便。 Equipped with RO drinking water next to elevators. 缺點 / Disadvantage: 1. 免費網路非常慢,在台灣住過的飯店+民宿裡頭,有提供免費網路之中數一數二慢,一點都不像是星級飯店的水準。經過測試,速度大多落在4-5Mbps,還有出現過1-2Mbps的,建議這是要先改善的項目。 Free WiFi connection speed is extremely slow, probably one of the slowest among the hotels/B & B I have ever stayed in Taiwan over years. With the testing result of 4-5Mbps in average and may drop to 1-2Mbps during hot hours. This is something really unbearable and needs immediate improvement. 2. 跟很多老牌飯店的缺點一樣,浴室淋浴的設計總是很容易會有水跑出到外面,無法有效的乾濕分離。 The same faulty design in most of the aged hotels, the shower area cannot seal water nicely within and splits to other area of the bathroom. 3. 要退房那天,吃完早餐回到房間有聞到異常的菸味。懷疑是有人在陽台或者某處抽菸,結果透過中央空調直接送進了房間。會這樣懷疑是因為在走廊沒聞到菸味,而且我們都沒抽菸,陽台附近也沒菸味。 Non-smoking for all rooms, but we smell it on the check out day after breakfast in our room. It was strange we didn't smell smoke before entering our room, nor outside the balcony. There might be a possibility someone was smoking in somewhere may cause the central A/C sucked the smoke and blew it to all rooms, you may need to check. 4. 早餐種類以星級飯店來說,稍嫌少了點。而且桌子清潔似乎已經少了酒精消毒這個部分。希望在防疫期間這些還是不要鬆懈的好。 As a high-star-ranked hotel, the breakfast seems doesn't with that many various kinds, though the tastes were all good. Besides this, I also noticed the cleaning of the tables were lack of sterilization by 75% alcohol. It's suggested to keep using it as the COVID-19 pandemic is still spreading widely. 5. 房間的桌椅很重,要拿來當買外食回房間跟小朋友一起吃比較不方便。 The table and chairs inside our room are pretty heavy. The design is also not that good and convenient if we have food with kids inside the room. 6. 電視稍嫌小了點,建議應更新為至少42吋或以上的機種。冰箱冷度也稍嫌不夠強。 TV is a bit smaller than what it should be in this kind of resort, 42" or plus would be much better. The fridge was not strong either to keep whatever inside in cold condition.

After my husband had booked this hotel, I was a little apprehensive having read the mixed reviews. However, the rooms are spacious and great for large families who need a lot of space. The pool is great for kids of all ages, the beach is lovely and clean and easily accessible through a tunnel. There is a huge indoor area with pool tables, lego playing area, small electric cars for toddlers, a children’s play room for younger children, reading area, gym (although this is not in the best location), coin operated laundry room, indoor water park (great for when the kids need a break from the sun), Starbucks and dumpling shop. The hotel is in a good location as it’s within walking distance of the restaurants and shops in the area. There are downsides such as it being outdated, cleanliness in some areas are questionable, the mattresses are very hard (mattress toppers could probably solve this), the deer park is wholly unnecessary and the breakfasts could have a bit more variety so that it caters to more Western tastes but overall, we had a lovely time and would probably return again.

This poor deer was being held in a 10x10 cage which allows him only 3 steps in each direction. The dear was visibly miserable in 100degree weather. I just don’t see how this is legal!! And to make matters worse this cage is placed in front of Starbucks so the hotel can make a few cents from people walking by who want to feed the dear carrots. If u care about animals at all, this is not the place for u. In my entire life I have never seen such a disturbing display by a business. Sad 😢

The hotel is definitely not a five stars hotel, even so with all the nice amenities. From check-in, the front desk lady was rude, we check-in @1 pm which most hotels will let the customer check-in a little early with no problem. The front desk lady looked right in my eyes and said "we can only check-in @3 pm, you should know our policy". We tried to play the nice card, and she keep emphasized "our policy is 3 pm!". Then told us to sit somewhere in the lobby and wait for 2 hours. There was no refreshment nor con-shier service provided while we waiting. The lobby was full of people carrying their own luggage while waiting for their room to be ready, loud and dis-organized. Finally we spoke to a manager, and she was able to check us in and introduce the hotel and how to get to their amenities. The room is big, but not very clean. The hotel has a large pool but no food or drink provided near the pool. It seems like there was a bar by the pool but just not in use for a long time. The 2nd floor has a lounge, the staff is completed untrained. They don't even know what is on their menu to make drinks. One time we ordered two mixed drink and a sprite, it took them 3 times to finally make it right. Although the hotel is located near the Kenting strip, but it is actually further then you think. It took 15 minutes to walk there. The hotel only provide shuttle to Kenting strip on the weekend which is not as their advertised. Unless you want to walk to Kenting strip, there wasn't any other food choice but eat at the hotel. The hotel only has ONE restaurant which is their buffet. Mostly Taiwanese food, low quality and not so tasty. Breakfast buffet is below average, so if you are looking for good food, stay away from this hotel. The room service menu also is a joke, basically nothing (only 4 items on it). You could not find room service menu in the room, the menu is at the 2nd floor lounge. Overall, I would NOT recommend this hotel. Staffs are rude, service are bad, food are terrible, amenities are not in use.

We went there during the covid-19 pandemic. We choose it because it was a well known hotel in Taiwan and we believed the hotel would make sure the guests all feel like home even in this situation. The first day we arrived, the staff checked our temperature and travelling history. we waited a long time while waiting for the check in, but it’s all for the safety. During the stay, the room were big and comfy, and breakfast was decent enough. The hotel itself is located at the end of the famous main street, supper close to the beach( and yea, it has its own tunnel to go through from the hotel to the beach!). Overall it was a really good experience of our stay!

Booked this hotel the last minute as we decided to stay one more night and our previous hotel which was nextdoor was sold out. Good... spacious room and lobby area. Really nice outdoor pool and jacuzzi. Decent gym. To improve... hotel shows its age. Room has moldy smell and had to keep AC constantly running. Breakfast is average compared to other comparable hotels. Overall.. not bad but not a first choice either.

We stayed for Christmas Eve, had the buffet dinner that night and the buffet breakfast the morning after. We used the tunnel to the beach (now exclusive for hotel guests given the hopefully ambitious renovation of the underground shopping district being carried out) and fed the deers on site. Food services were on par for the price we paid. The room was very spacious, although dated. Amenities were average. It was as if nothing had changed/improved since we last visited. Check-in process was somewhat slow but staff were trying to be helpful. This hotel has a dates feel and had passed its prime. Nevertheless, it remained very child friendly, very spacious and well-priced, worthwhile a stay.
