My family booked 2 rooms here for 1 night.
I was grateful that the hotel took my reservation over the phone without requiring me to send a deposit first.
The rooms are tiny and in poor condition. The bed was firm and we could get by sleeping on it. I suppose my disappointment stemmed from the fact that the room cost TWD2600, only TWD200 less than Harbour Resort Hotel next door. From the outside of Harbour Hotel, it certainly looked a lot newer. I couldnt book Harbour because it was full but I certainly wished i was there and not in Apollo.
The staff was quite helpful though. My son broke a drinking glass and the staff came immediately to clean up.
The breakfast was poor. There was a large group of chinese tourists who had breakfast earlier but the food was not replenished. So scraps were left when it was our turn to eat.
The breakfast did not look very appetising either.
What added to the disappointment was the hotel's recommendation of the restaurant for dinner. We had asked to try out local cuisine and the staff directed us to Hu Jing a few doors away.
We ordered a 6 course dinner for 5. The food came within 5 minutes giving us the impression that it was all done and merely heated up. The food tasted bland and certainly did not look good in the first place.
Do avoid it.
There is nothing much to do in sun moon lake other than the cruise and a cable car ride. So staying beyond one night would not be recommended. We were offered the cruise tickets at TWD 150 instead of the usual TWD 300 at the ticket counter just outside Harbour Resort Hotel (run by the HR Hotel) if we bought a day in advance. I still wonder whether we were hoodwinked because Apollo runs a similar cruise but at hourly intervals rather than half hour intervals at TWD150.
