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.

Cute and cozy cottages with comfortable and big beds. Our cottage had a sauna, which we made good use of! Simple but good breakfast! The hotel has a riverside restaurant in summer which makes delicious food but at steep prices. You can also ride the skilift up to the top of the hill and ride a “bobsled” down. Really fun! This costs a bit but very much worth it!

The cabin did not meet our expectations and was not as nice as advertised on the website. The hotel breakfast was superb and our dinner in the sky restaurant was heavenly. We would recommend the hotel for short stays.

We requested a chalet near the river and got one just back from it. It was very quiet when we stayed in February. It was clean and compact, the kids loved sleeping upstairs and the beds were huge. We had breakfast which was busy, but everything was restocked as it went down, and there was a good selection. The kids liked the waffle maker. Perfect for one night, to be near the airport.

I would just like to thank sunway for how Organised our trip was, from start to finish it was amazing. I alway thought it would be once in a lifetime trip for our family. But we will definitely go again. Also our elf’s from Dublin airport right through our stay in Lapland was Rosie and Snoozy, they are amazing at there jobs, they went above and beyond for the children, my daughter Aoife is in love with them both and wants them to return as her elf on the shelf next year 😂 I hope the next time we visit Lapland Rosie and Snoozy are our elf’s, as it wouldn’t be the same without them. I would like to thank them for making our trip Magical

My partner, child (3 years 11 months) and I have just returned back from our 3 night stay, 4 days, in Lapland, rovaniemi. We stayed in the Christmas cottages at Ounasvaara. I will try and cover as much as possible as I feel the price of the holiday didn’t particularly reflect the experience - I must note that my son is autistic but the holiday was booked before we found out. Therefore my views on things may be slightly different to that of a non complex child. I will cover it in good, average and bad format. Starting with good: Getting off the plane, we were greeted by TUI reps, directed to our coach and also introduced to our elf. Everything was great, easy to follow. We got our snow suits which was about a 15 minute drive - views beautiful. Once we got our suits we had 1 stop off just before our hotel - bus ride 30 mins altogether. Great. We arrived at the hotel and told we couldn’t check in until 4pm (3 hours) for cleaning and other things, this was understandable but due to our son, waiting around is difficult - this wasn’t an issue though we played in the snow and explored. We had a welcome meeting, told about all of the events and things todo as well as the itinerary - which had changed from the initial brochure but will cover it later - the reps both Tess and Marti were great, very helpful and informative. They provided us with sledges so we could play in the snow. The location is beautiful. We were bed and breakfast so needed to source other food. The supermarket was around 15 minute walk from the cottage - very safe, easy to locate, cheap. Brilliant. The cottage was very cosy, very warm and contained a nice sauna to thaw out. The ski slope was a snowball throw away so perfect for you to play on. Taxi rides into rovaniemi or the shops cost around 15-20 euros. Very quick and easy. Food in the restaurant was also tasty - slightly more expensive but as expected for restaurants. Everybody spoke perfect English and were very friendly, the hotel staff, to the excursions to the local shops. They were great. Location 5 ⭐️ Reps 5 ⭐️ Accessibility to help/shops/miscellaneous 5 ⭐️ Average: On The brochure, the days were supposed to go as follows: Day 1, arrive, get bearings and relax. Day 2, excursion taster, huskies reindeer and meet santa and finish with lunch. Day 3, free day to pick what you want - so if you enjoyed a particular excursion, get a good day out of it. When we arrived, day 2 and 3 had been swapped so it was a free day first before the excursion on the next day. This I feel wasn’t great, because we weren’t sure what our son would like, it was a stab in the dark at picking something he’d enjoy - again his additional needs come into play here - we chose the reindeer ride but will cover later. As it happens, he loved the huskies but we didn’t have enough time to rebook. On the final day, before travelling home, we went to Santa Claus village - we were initially told to avoid as it’s very busy, very commercialised and the TUI excursions are better. We spent 1 hour there, 08:00 am and it was empty. It looked magical and felt extremely Christmassy - I have placed this on average because I feel as though we could have spent longer here and it would’ve been fantastic. The choices of excursion were huskies, reindeer, Santa day and tobogganing. Not a bad selection. The price for our reindeer excursion was €385 which wasn’t a bad price, until we got there but will explain later. The room it’s self was good and average for 3 ⭐️ - everything you need, warm and comfortable but very basic. Though, this isn’t an issue as you’re out all day. On the evening of the 3rd and final night, we had a gala dinner which was a mix of meats, potatoes, and veg, a little Christmas dinner, with nuggets and chips for kids as well as salmon. It was average - but I wouldn’t have expected too much more due to catering for a lot of people. The only issue I had was the amount of children digging their hands into the desert. We had fireworks on the evening which was very pleasant. Taster excursion day 3.5/ 4 ⭐️ (A little unorganised and lots of standing around but experience lovely) Free lunch 5 ⭐️ Itinerary change 3 ⭐️ Room 3 ⭐️ Gala lunch 3 ⭐️ Now for the bad: When we arrived in the room and unpacked after a long day, this is when the major issues appeared. Now please look at images attached to understand. Our shower was COVERED in mould. Our microwave was incredibly dirty. Our kitchen hob was scratched and dirty and the floor was dirty. I can’t stress enough, the only reason we didn’t complain was because of our son, if we had to repack and move to a different room, it would’ve caused a massive meltdown. And after a long day, we didn’t need it. Although we did clean as much as we could, for a holiday costing this much money, it was disgusting. The reindeer excursion, was a massive letdown. We were told on the coach, that we would meet the reindeer, get photos, we were told how to pet the reindeers - a certain area on their back, and have a good ride through the forest, as well as receiving your ‘reindeer driving license’. When we arrived we headed towards the reindeers through the forest and tried to take a couple of photos of them, we were quickly ushered away but this was Understandable so that we could crack on, and, we expected to get better photos later. We split into 2 groups and went into the sleigh. We were told not to use flash as it can startle the reindeer and the lead won’t be able to see where they are going. It was pitch black so needed flash for photos. The ride lasted approximately 20 minutes. After, we couldn’t get photos as we had about 3 minutes to swap over with the previous group. We managed to get 1 photo whilst In the sleigh, however we weren’t able to get more than one. We weren’t allowed too close to the reindeer and we didn’t meet them. We certainly didn’t get to stroke them and didn’t receive anything. We then went into a little hut with a fire to learn about reindeer, drink berry juice, have gingerbread and sausage which was very nice. Then, once that was over, that was it. No meet and greets. No close up personal photos. No stroking. No driving license. The total duration was about 2 hours. It was incredibly unorganised as we found ourself looking around to see what was going on. We spent more time travelling than actually in the excursion. For €385 I was massively let down. This excursion was through TUI and not an independent. We spoke to somebody who done an independent Husky excursion and they informed us that the ride was 45 minutes, they got to meet the huskies, stroke them and get photos. Good value for money. Our son loved the huskies on the taster sessions, so I have to reiterate, if we had the tasters first, we would’ve known he disliked the reindeer and loved huskies so would’ve booked that first. It felt as though it was a massive waste of money. In general, there was a lot of waiting around and not knowing what was going on. Again, our child’s issue meant that was slightly difficult for him. His age also comes into this, as he is nearly 4, so older children would’ve probably been a little better. But organisation was very poor. I can’t fault the reps as they did try their best to ensure they kept us informed, but alot of things were out of their hands. Room cleanliness 1 ⭐️ Excursion (reindeer ride) through TUI 1 ⭐️ Organisation via providers 1 ⭐️ Value for money 2 ⭐️ - based on room cleanliness and excursion To summarise, The place is absolutely beautiful. The people are wonderful, the food is great. Good price. There is plenty todo from long scenic walks to excursions. The cottages are very lovely and cosy and ours probably was a one off for being very dirty and neglected. The reps were very helpful + they kept us up to date with the changes to travel (lateral flow before return) and sourced us some free of charge. We were massively let down by the cleanliness of the room and the excursions. I sincerely don’t think it was worth the money paid. If the room had been better and we were able to enjoy the excursion more, I think it would’ve been great. If anybody is looking to book up, I’d be happy to answer questions they had on it.

We stayed there for 4 nights in August. We considered the standard chalet would suffice for us and our Lab but we were upgraded by the reception. All in all we can say that it was a clean and pet friendly place. Breakfast was OK, but once you are late in the morning, the personnel becomes annoyingly un-friendly. The ski resort is very close to the reception, but summertime operation schedules were disappointing (lift, bike rental). Considering value for the money, I would recommend it.

I was there for four days with my (adult) son: we were there simply for skiing and relaxation. For that the hotel was great: The skiing tracks and slopes are just next to the hotel. The surroundings was peaceful and yet only ten minutes from Rovaniemi center (by car). The cabin was ok - nothing fancy, but clean and functionable. We enjoyed sauna daily - very relaxing after hours of skiing. The service was friendly - even If we did not use it much due to covid restrictions (their restaurant was closed, but it was easy to order take away from Rovaniemi() I think that the pricing was very affordable - same as a standard double room on a decent Rovaniemi hotel would have been.

We stayed one night in Ounasvaara Chalets on our way to the north. There were not many other visitors at that time, so it was peaceful although the cottages are close to each other. The cottage was relatively new and practical - living room, kitchenette, small bedroom and bathroom + sauna downstairs and a bedroom upstairs, with very steep stairs. There are two apartments in one building and the wall between them is not very thick. There are not so many services nearby, so a car or bike is needed. Or maybe it's better in the winter with ski lifts in function. The place probably looks very different during high season. A nice buffet breakfast was included.
