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.

A little expensive if all stuff in the room were minimal iced, even drinking glasses were plastic.
Breakfast was good. Spa was clean and comfortable. Timetables are very difficult because almost every day opening times were different than all other days.
Special thanks to take care of dog. I'm very sorry that nature center is gone.

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.

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.

A really nice hotel in a very beautiful location, with views the amazing beach from the balcony. The food in the restaurant (Restaurant Bistro) was absolutely outstanding - really top-notch cooking. The waiting staff could not have been more welcoming or helpful (in three languages). We'll be back. Thank you,

Gorgeous place. Beautiful beach and sea views. The food in Restaurant Bistro (attached to the hotel) is absolutely outstanding. Tip, top quality cooking. And the service? Also magnificent. The waitress could not have been more helpful or welcoming - and in three languages! Fabulous place all round. We’ll be back. Kiitos!

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.

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.

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.

I booked this place based on positive reviews and water park on site. When arrived I was told that the waterpark will be closed at 7pm and reopen at 11am next day. I was at the waterpark at 6:50 and it was closed. I was told that waterpark is being closed 15 minutes before closing time. Nonsense! Even telling that I flew over 20 hours to get there didn't help. So, if you're booking this hotel because of the waterpark make sure it does work in the hours you're staying there, otherwise you going to be disappointed.

Otherwise, hotel is ok. Lots of families with kids, breakfast is ok. I'm sure there are better hotels in town.
