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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Nice apartment with a beautiful view, but there isnt any air conditioning, so you have a hot apartment with balcony doors wide open. Breakfast starts at 8am, its too late and it causes traffic. Same goes for Spa times, opens at 10am and its jammed immediately and its too crowded. I wish they would think about the timetables all over , breakfast starting from 7am and Spa from 8am. There are mostly families with kids during summertime and it would be wise to re-think the times. There are no lunch service in the hotel, only some waffles during lunchtime. Bistro opens at 2pm, lunchtime is already over for kids by then. So basically the hotel is forcing you to take your money elsewhere to buy lunch. Staff is awesome, very friendly, but the management should really think about these things.

We picked this hotel as it offers free entrance to the spa within the room charge. However, we noticed it offers much more. Greate location, view to the baltic sea (you'll need to book a room with sea view), clean and good style rooms, friendly personnel and large breakfast. We can fully recommend this place.

Outrageously the hotel takes all the profits without giving real advantages to the customer, compared to the hotel room price. Most common rooms, stripped off of any luxury. There aren't even coffee/tea making facilities. We stayed two nights without cleaning, nor turn down service. In fact there was only one person in the reception taking care of the coffee shop as well. Breakfast was most basic, there was nothing extra. No local products, nor organic. Cheapest quality without aesthetics. Visiting the spa was included, but it wasn't anything special either. There were no cafe services available. I feel most ashamed to be Finnish by seeing this kind of greed in my own country.

We spent some holiday at Santas hotel. Even though I was having a flue we had a very pleasant time there. The holiday was on Christmas ambiance. The hotel room was nice, clean and comfortable. This hotel has plenty of activities during the wintertime such as •a bowling room •escape room •massage •and Barbour services •indoor playground for little children •basic sports room and best of all the big swimming hall for everyone. We were enjoying the nice service and tasty breakfast.

Just beautiful location on top of sand dunes, great view to sea. Just one best places to see might night sun. Good beds ( twin) nice balcony in seaside. AC I don't know if there is any, at least there isn't individual control unit in room, but room temperature was ok. Bathroom small and shower too small. There was studios and apartments with much better facilitates. Friendly staff and lobby bar, very good Scandinavian breakfast in separate spa building ( indoors corridor). Limited parking space, just front of building, more space nearby. Shopping and restaurants in walking distance, city center ( extremely small) about 6-7 miles.

Beautiful location and beatuful seaview from the balcony. Large comfortable room with good beds. Bath room air conditioning not very efficient and the shower stall too small. Friendly staff, good breakfast and a plus from a good selection of glutein-free products.

We wanted to go somewhere n relax if only for a night and we’ve been through Kalajoki in summer, it’s awesome then and it’s lovely in winter to. The hotel is lovely and we had our dog with us also and they couldn’t have been nicer staff.Hotel n Rooms are clean. It was winter so restaurant was closed that day but the pool a spa were open and are great. If you’ve kids it’ll be even better in summer when the water park is open. I’d definitely stay here again and u should to

Good and clean rooms which are quite small. There is grate terace with unbeliveble view. At least 7th floor. Unfortunately no AC at all which is big minus because windows are to south-east. There should be a wifi but in our room it was missing. During the week the bar is open only 10 am. Breakfast is good Nordic standard.

Coming from Australia the concept of 24 hour sun light and bathing in cooler climes is challenging. However, we 100% enjoyed our few days in Kalajoki. The rooms were spotless, the wifi good. Breakfast was good especially for families. Recommended.
