Amazing time
Actually I stayed in this wonderful resort for my honeymoon during 5 days/4nights. My wife is Korean and me French. We read lot of review about this resort and some are really bad, I just thing the bad review is not justificate at all, the food is amazing, everyday the food type change, of course not all, it's buffet but most of them is variety and the team cook or waiter take a lot of precious time to speak with all costumers, I have my own restaurant inn Seoul, I just have to say this resort is great. I was also read that the resort charge some extra charge an de we have to pay as bad surprise! No way, there is not extracharge, everything is writing such when you book by divers website, I took the full package, I could get 15 Mn massage for free, so I upgrated with divers option, don't complain simple tourist, it's 15 Mn so just take it and move to you right room! Also with this full package, I go to some divers free tours( I could wash dolphins, sun set...), kayaking, I got lot of option in the drink menu, coktail(delicious), wine, soft drink, snake 24 hours a days! Every night there was some divers concerts, parti.... it was good enough to enjoy my time with my wife. All staff in the island is nice , polite, professional. We will be back, thank you
