We stayed one night here at the end of our trip. The Blue Lagoon is lovely and it was so nice to have the hotel's private lagoon because the main lagoon is very crowded. Breakfast was good and the hotel facilities were lovely. The room itself was comfortable and clean, but it was a bit "faded" It's big with lots...

Blue Lagoon Clinic Hotel. For 300+ euros a night it also includes a pair of admission tickets to the public lagoon (worth about 100euro anyway). Backyard is a vast concoction of rocks and flammable moss land and it has an amazing private lagoon for guests only. Currently has 10 rooms with more under construction. Highly recommended.

Well, it isn't cheap; we paid 300 euro for one night in a double room. But, nowhere really is in Iceland. That being said, it includes entry into the Blue Lagoon which would normally be about 50 euro per person (which makes the hotel only 200 euro for the night). Even better, hotel guests don't need a reservation to enter...

The blue lagoon is a spectacular place to go if you want a new "something''. Basicly, it is a thermonal "lake". Even if the weather outside os awful, and its raining, you can still have a swim there! The water is full of minerals, and it heats up up to 42 degrees celcium and mabye mire! It's literally one of...

Few rooms, good food and service. We were there when they had an extended day. After 5 p.m. we were the only one in the water. As we went in winter the stars were unbelievable to sit in our own private cove with the twinkle of stars the only thing better would be northern lights. This will definitely be a...

This place is spectacular. The clinic hotel is so relaxing. The view from the floor to ceiling windows and veranda is endless lava fields. The room is sparse but has hardwood floor, lots of storage, a desk, two lounge chairs and a large bathroom. Make sure you bring your own shampoo/conditioner and soap/shower gel. The private hot spring lagoon that...

Something I didnt know until we arrived at the clinic hotel was that there are only 14 rooms, so it is quiet and private. We made full use of the free entry to the main lagoon site during the day and we had our evening meal at Lava restaurant. When we returned from dinner we got the swimwear back on...

The Blue Lagoon is a must when visiting Iceland. We booked the premium package and it was well worth it. Make sure to pre-book online before you go as it can get very busy. I am not one for Spa experiences but this would make me change my mind. You can spend hours here. A great experience.

We went here our last night before flying home to end our Iceland adventure in a relaxed style and this was the perfect place. We were alone in the private lagoon most of the time and the experience bathing in this pool is far more better than in the Blue lagoon, next time we won't even bother going there even...

Very interesting place we paid for the luxury package I would not recommend this. You get a private change room but for an extra $80.00 Canadian per person that's all you get. You are limited to a three hour use of it and it's just a change room with a shower at the back of the space. There are no...
