4/5 Good

Travelled with family
Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Top service, but could do with minor renovation
Putting forward that this trip was very much off-season hence apart from first 2 days the hotel was almost empty. Staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. Room is ok, but little worn on some places and also would need some more warm furnishings. Breakfast was again ok, selection is fairly good but quality of the items could be better (coffee, muesli, etc) Seaside would be beautiful but would need a LOT of cleaning. Hotel grounds and pools are nice and well maintained, small sauna is fine if there are this few guests. Kids club was not working (and also need a BIG makeover) the little playground in the hotel is nice.

Sehr gepflegte Anlage mit tollem Service
Wir waren begeistert! Unser Zimmer ( eine Juniosuit) war groß, modern und ganz neu. Das Bad ein Traum! Da wir im Februar da waren haben wir auch den schönen Indoor-Pool benutzt. Um die ersten Sonnenstrahlen auszunutzen, hat man uns sogar das Mittagessen am Pool serviert. Das fanden wir großartig. Der Strand ist herrlich. Wir kommen schon Ende März wieder. Versprochen!

4/5 Good

Hotellet var fint. Tre forskjellige basseng. Dog hovedbassenget var mye mindre enn antatt. Frokost var bra. Spiste buffet i resturant til middag som var bra til den prisen (10 euro) Rommet vi fikk var stort. Renhold på rommet kunne vært noe bedre. På selve hotellet og dems område var ryddig og fint. Området rundt var det mye søppel.

Reser med mc
Bra hotell, två pooler samt en inom hus. Ca 50 meter till stranden, bra med mini market och resturang intill hotellet. Det verkar som att området är under uppbyggnad, men runt hotellet var det bra. Vi parkerade mc’n på hotellets område, vilket vara säkert. Vi är mycket nöjd :)
