We loved the location, and the beach was a short few blocks away, too.
The wait staff was less than eager to help.
We thought our air conditioner wasn't working, but the handyman said it was rigged to allow settings no lower than 18 degrees Celsius; so we were hot all night.
Free access to pool during day, but you pay after six PM, I think it was.
We arrived at Jurmala early enough in the afternoon to be able to enjoy a stroll along the pedestrian walkway to check out the shops and crafts stands (lots of amber and woolens!). The resort area was pretty lively with music, colored street fountains, fancy gowns, flowers, inviting restaurants... After dinner we walked the wide sandy beach area and watched the sun go down. Aaah, the captivating Baltic sea!
They say Latvia has problems with unemployment, but the hotel staff doesn't seem to be eager to work at all! Good location, the very center of Jurmala, nice old building (the main one), renovated. 3 star level.

It was one of the best apartment style hotels that we ever stayed in. The rooms are large and in a perfect condition, a lot of hot water, it is clean and kept clean, the WiFi is good a fast - basically what else to ask. The staff was very friendly and helpful with restorants reservations and car rentals. Highly recommended!
