The staff has been so friendly and very accommodating. The rooms at very nice and the pool is amazing.
We made a new friend already from the Chicago area. Austin was in the same flight from Seoul and checked in at the same time. We started chatting with him in the club lounge over breakfast. He is here in on business for the week selling pipes and fittings.
