We stayed here overnight in September 2014. It is right on the beach with a path along the beach for walking or biking. It's a peaceful and relaxing place. We just walked and enjoyed the view but did not swim. The restaurant was good and you can sit inside or out. Our room was in the farthest part of the... More

We enjoyed a great long weekend at the Dutch coast of the Ijsselmeer. Hotel location is really at the beach and only seperated by the boulevard. Rooms are spacious with bed, closet, desk/chair and a smaller table and chair. Some rooms have access to either a little terasse or a balcony (ours didnt, but faced the paking lot). It is... More

The hotel is located on a peninsula 3 km away from the old centre of Makkum town. A mankind created, artificial summer resort with a white sandy beach, camping, hotel/restaurant, ice cream shop and a few tourist shops. The reception staff was not particularly welcoming. There seems to be a strict policy that rooms are not earlier released as from... More

We were there the last weekend of November. The room was cold even though we had the heat up. The comforter on the bed was too thin for the time of year. It is probably a great hotel in the summer but in the winter there is nothing to do. Staff was very nice.

Fantastic out of season location to chill out -great views 360 degrees with lovely views from the balconies of each room. The Restaurant is a real find so don't waste time going out looking for an alternative just take some time to enjoy the sunset. Breakfast was good -plenty of choice and again you just cannot fail to be impressed... More

Having been to Makkum a few times now, I find it a wonderful base for business and leisure in Holland. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean with fine attention to detail. The restaurant offers a wide and interesting range of Dutch cuisine suitable nearly for every palate. It's an excellent place to relax whether it is after a hard... More

We spent a weekend in Makkum and picked the only 4-stars hotel in town. The hotel is not more than "OK" and certainly not worth that 4th star. We had a room on the front side (135) quite a lot of noise from the square in front. Windows had not been cleaned for a long time as the spiders and... More

The room has a modern look. A car / bike is necessary for some distraction. The ice cream bar belonging to the hotel closes at 6:00 pm the doors. The other bars and restaurants close at 9:00 pm. Dining at the hotel is possible, but you must reserve. Taking place on the terrace without any order, no problem.

This was booked by a tour organizer so we had no expectation. Was favorably impressed when we rode up. Very clean, efficient friendly check-in, and a very nice clean room. The room is slightly larger than your average room. The restaurant was very nice and the food presented well and tasted great.

Standard size room. Breakfast was varied and good, even a nice cup of cappucino was offered. Good variety of dishes in the dinner restaurant with healthy prices. During off-season ther were not many guest, so very quiet. Close to the beach and I think it would be VERY nice during summer. Clean and attractive hotel that I recommend
