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.

Great hotel, well priced, about 15 minute drive from the airport and about 20 minutes drive to Santa’s Village. This hotel is great for kids and families, lots to do on premises between pool, bike and ski rentals and trails to enjoy those. Staff is very helpful. We chose a larger room and breakfast was included. It is cafeteria style but with lots of good options, they also have another small restaurant that’s great for snacks between meals. You must bring or rent winter clothes in order to enjoy the outdoors. It is very cold! The hotel recommended Winterent to rent the ski clothing, I do not recommend them though, they have very poor communication and not so pleasant client care, or lack of help.

Didn't enjoy our stay here at all. The beds were hard, room too warm, very hard to find facilities and breakfast was very poor. Cheapest of toilet roll in bathroom. There was no smoking are that I could find and on arrival signs to find reception very confusing resulting in us wandering about in snow with luggage. All in all would not recommend.

We booked the 6-person room as apartment was not a available for our family if 5, kids 10,4,2. It's nice has you have 3 spaces with doors for kids to sleep and still use common area. Kitchen was helpful as we made tons of cocoa and Mac 'n'cheese in microwave, no cookware provided. Breakfast is the same daily but kids will enjoy. Dinner buffet is economical as little ones are free and entree changes daily. You can talk to your tour drivers to stop at market nearby on your return to hotel to get essentials or eat at the pizza/kebab shop. Our only complaint, and why it's a 4 star, is that the open times of the kids fun area and pool are a bit restrictive give. The times you are likely out on tour during the day. We were there 5 days and never made it to the pool, and jump room for an hour once. So, make sure you have ample plans and activities for kids, know the operating times if staying here.

On our last night in the santasport apartments & have been very happy with the accommodation. Really spacious & clean on arrival. Rooms are pleasantly warm have plenty of cutlery/plates etc. kettle, microwave, hairdryer, toaster, dishwasher, big fridge/freezer. Loads of storage space for cases & belongings. 2 bathrooms one with sauna, 2 bedrooms. Beds were comfy, loads of extra pillows, extra duvet & plenty of extra towels. Big TV, there seems to be a place to plug a fire stick in but I forgot batteries for remote! Never used any of the facilities in the main hotel like pool/bowling etc as we were so busy out & about. Didn’t eat there either, we brought stuff with us or ate out. The staff were helpful when I had one or two queries & room was ready 3 hours early (lucky I guess) Its a good 10-15 min drive to Santa Village you need a car or taxis, I couldn’t see anything in the immediate vicinity, such as shops/restaurants & certainly not walking distance in -30! We had cretins staying above us who would bang the doors until 2am - absolutely not the hotels fault but maybe bring ear plugs. All in all I would have no hesitation in recommending.

There were 6 adults for our trip to Lapland. We stayed in a 2 bed aparthotel at Santasport Resort which accommodated us as there were another 2 single beds in the lounge. We had a kitchen, small dining area, bathroom with sauna and a balcony. The hotel had a small cafe which did suitable meals for our weekend trip, along with bowling alley, gym and swimming poo. We were not disappointed. We visited Santa Clause village which is a must and stayed most of the day even though the temperature was -20. The hotel is a bit out of the way and we had to get taxi's everywhere, but it was not a problem and we shared the costs. I will write a separate review on that, which you must look up. I thoroughly recommed this hotel.

Fab family complex, a sporting complex which turns into family resort in winter with the snow. Good breakfast. Huge rooms with bedroom and lounge. Basic kitchen with only a microwave and kettle. Drying room and sauna. My opinion need a hire care here as slightly out of town by couple of km. close to ski resort and also the hill with the lookout and fantastic views of the northern lights by the reindeer cafe. Staff were ok. Not overly friendly but assume they see so many guests each year. Football pitch opposite where kids go sledding on the hill. Sledges left about the complex to use. Indoor bowling alley and swimming pool and a kids play area and indoor footy area which stays open till 10pm. Restaurant and bar on site. Good value, fabulous rooms would recommend

Lovely hotel, situated close to the city centre! Impressive variety of pools (shallow pool for kids, lane pool, hot tub, cold, hot pool etc). Good starting point for exploring nearby sightseeings & theme parks. Rooms could have been a bit better, but they are clean & warm.

We stayed at the hotel from the 6th - 10th December 2023 and were in room 809 which was located on the 4th floor. The room was a 1 bedroom family suite which contained two twin beds in the bedroom with two hanging wardrobes and some storage shelves and storage drawer. In the main part of the room was a table with four chairs, kitchenette which contained a dishwasher, sink, fridge and microwave. Utensils were a bare minimum with plates, cups, glasses, cutlery and bowls. There were two twin beds in this part of the room and also a television. The bathroom contained a sauna and shower and complimentary shower gel and shampoo was provided. The room was comfortable and clean and also very functional. We were provided with several bin bags, dishwasher tablets and washing up liquid and dishcloths were provided each day or when you had maid service. Access to the pool was free of charge to guests and when we were there we had access early in the morning and later in the afternoon. The pool was very good with a slow lane, fast lane and aqua jogging lane. There were two jacuzzis available and there was a children's pool with a slide and ample swimming aids available. You are required to shower naked before entering the pool and when exiting and there are places to store your towels for when you exit the pool. There was a soft play area for all ages and a bowling alley and although we did not use them my daughter would have used them had we had more time. We upgraded to half board before leaving the UK and the food was a real disappointment. There was a lack of choice for the children and quite often we ended up having to go to the cafe to find something suitable for our daughter to eat due to her sensory issues. Breakfast was the same each day, scrambled egg, bacon, beans, mushroom, bread, fruit, porridge, cereals as standard. Juice, water, coffee, tea and hot chocolate as well as alternative teas were also available at breakfast. The evening meals, I could not tell you what I ate most nights it was difficult to gain an understanding of what the meal was and what was in the meal and it was never a hot temperature. I did enjoy the chicken broiler on our second evening which was like a chicken, bacon and potato dish. I also had on the previous night the chicken chilli dish with rice which tasted like stroganoff. I do wish we hadn't paid for half board and looked at other options when booking as I did not feel that we got value for money and the food was simply not great. The rooms were comfortable, warm and clean and more than sufficient for our stay of 4 nights. To swim we were able to get a wristband each day from reception and we had to hand that in after our swim. This was needed for access to the pool and for a locker. The cafe that was located just opposite reception was nice in the evenings for a snack or a drink and there were some cakes and pastries available. This is a large hotel and we barely scratched the surface during our visit. The restaurant is located on the 2nd floor and you access this from the reception walking past the pool and then take the elevator that is just after the children's pool. The reception staff are friendly and helpful and you also get provided with a sheet containing the information when you check in that had pool times and other useful information. I did only get one pillow, so I used the live chat function to ask if I could have some additional pillows and these were delivered promptly.

We stopped here with Tui on one of there Christmas Lapland trip. The hotel itself is nice with loads of great facilities but if your going with Tui you probably won't get a chance to use. We stopped in the side anex which had lovely views over the town and great facilities. I'd definitely go back to the hotel but would definitely not book through Tui. Note for Tui customers they will change days on there planned itinerary without notice so if your going to book day trips make sure you have a cancellation policy. This happenedon our trip to some ppl and the Tui Reps attitude was a bit poo. Apart from that you will certainly enjoy

We chose this accommodation after we had searched for suitable family accommodation with a good location to visit Santa Village. We knew from our research that the main Santasport Accommodation was an Olympic training ground and also a community facility so we were aware before travelling that there would be athletes and local people around. We chose this accommodation based on the facilities that are offered for children and because of the reviews for cleanliness and comfort left by other reviewers. On the first night we stayed at the on-site apartments which are just perfect, very quiet after a long day travelling, every item you could need was there and the beds were so comfortable. On our second, third and fourth nights we moved over to the main hotel to be closer to the amenities for the children. We were a party of seven; two grandparents, two mammies and three grandchildren aged 10,4 and 4. In the main hotel we had mostly the same items in our room except for the sauna however there was a sauna available. The beds once again were very comfortable the rooms are designed very well with a bedroom room inside a bedroom room which the children loved. There was a lovely warm swimming pool, a fabulous play centre, sleds to go sledding and the opportunity to try out practice for cross country skiing. We were twenty minutes from the airport and ten or 15 minutes from Santas Village. Taxis were super fast to arrive reception phoned for us and the prices were consistent. There is a cafe with hot chocolate and rolls etc and beer for the adults. Breakfast was great lots on offer and the entire accommodation was superbly clean. The rooms were cleaned every day, the cleanliness was fantastic. Staff at the Santasport were so so friendly and helpful. We had requested if we could have an earlier access time to one of the rooms and the staff facilitated this. If you are researching family accommodation like we were then I would definitely choose Santasport. On the days when we returned from Santas Village the children went swimming, sledding and played in the play room. Overall Santasport is an excellent choice for a visit to Lapland. We would definitely highly recommend this accommodation.
