Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We loved spending a morning here . Great place to visit if you are short on money. The musical water fountain was a nice surprise! Island would have five stars if it had better and bigger cafes . Be aware you have to pay to use the toilet !

    Go to Margaret Island and enjoy the whole place. This is right on the southern end. Great place to sit, listen to the music, enjoy the people, and relax. Lots of locals just sitting about and relaxing. Good times.

    We enjoyed our day at the Palatinus Strand Baths. Nice facilities, clean grounds. Kids enjoyed both the indoor and outdoor pools for them. We enjoyed the massage jets and the wave pool. Loved all the trees and green space. Very much appreciated the lockers. Reasonable price.

    T'was a cold day when we visited the island. On a hot day, the whole experience would have been entirely different. There's not a lot to do on a cold day so we felt the island really needed this. A welcome distraction from a fairly dull walk.
    Horses, many species of ducks, birds sitting on nests and some of the biggest bunnies you will see.
    Not a large sized attraction, but pretty good. We liked it.

    Firstly Margaret Island, where the Water Tower is located, is a very pleasant place to spend a few hours if you are visiting Budapest for 3 or 4 days. It is tranquil, leafy and relaxing. About 2/3 along the island you will find the Water Tower (you can't miss it) that was built in 1911 and is a UNESCO protected structure. It is 57m (187ft) tall and has a viewing gallery that offers panoramic views of the island.

    We visited Margaret's Island and thought renting a scooter would be a fun way to explore the island. The staff were helpful, friendly and spoke very good english. We hired a scooter for an hour and it was a great way to explore the island. Thank you!

    We hired a bicycle for 6 people and we were only 5. The tyres were flat and made the bicycle hard to pedal. When we returned we were 3 mins late. They wanted to charge an extra half an hour. He was rude when i explained about the tyres and never did they mention at the beginning that there will be penalties if you are over by a couple of minutes. They then started to speak in their own language and laugh and demand the extra money or else they would not return my ID.
    Margarit Island is lovely and there is lots to do but just don't go with this company.

    Security personel at the door are really rude! And somehow get the feeling that everything is not right at this place.

    Do not eat here - drinks overpriced. Nothing special. Was totally empty inside even there was line outside.
