not comfortable
We had our pup and were not aware that we were supposed to bring the vaccine papers (no one sent me any emails or instructions) We had to call our vet at 8pm. It always took forever to wait for the elevator, which was annoying. Soundproof was horrible, you can hear the convos next room AND dog barking. Pool was small and nice and not too crowded. Hino's restaurant's food was actually good. 강아지랑 같이 갔었는데, 백신 서류 안가져왔다고 체크인 불가능하다는 안내받음. 서류가 필요하면 강아지룸 예약할때 알려줬어야 하는거 아닌가 했더니 분명 써있을거라고 하셔서 이멜 보여줬더니 없었음. 저녁 8시에 동물병원 전화해서 겨우 체크인. 엘리베이터는 매번 기다려야했고, 방음이 전혀 안되어서 옆방 말소리, 개 짖는 소리 다 들림. 방에 개 계단이 없다고 했더니 원래 없는 방이라는 안내. 이틀 묵었는데 이 가격에 다시 갈거같지는 않을듯. 너무 놀랍게도 히노스라는 레스토랑 음식은 맛있었음.

Great pool but the beautiful marble flooring in the corridor and inside the room meant that, after hour of swimming, I slipped my wet foot and cut my leg....but apart from that minor incident, my overall impression was great.

Good-quality stay
Overall, we had a nice stay at St Jones. The room was spacious and clean and the view from our balcony was amazing. The official check-in time was at 4 PM, which I found outrageous. However, when we arrived at the hotel around 2 PM, we were able to check-in right away so no complaints there. You will be given 1 two-hour access to the pool per person: you will be given an option to choose between different time slots throughout the day. You can pay 10,000 KRW per an extra time slot, not that you would want to do it: we went to the pool both in the morning and in the evening, both times it was super-crowded. And by crowded I mean impossible to swim crowded. We were not too heartbroken about this: the beach in front of and nearby the hotel is clean and nice so we spent most of our trip there.

Fair 4.0
Not up to price and expectations
First of all, there was no parking space left. Took like 20 minutes driving around the parking lot. No staff was there to help with the situation, and there were many people who could not park their car. Swimming pool entrance is just once per night and timely limited. The hotel is huge and getting around takes ages. The staff wasnt all that friendly. The room was nice, however, the water hardly drained from the shower. Thats not acceptable at all. Overall very mixed feelings about that stay.
