Spend my birthday there. It was our 3rd stay at this resort. As always it`s been fantastic. The property is beautiful and very clean. Even so the rooms are tiny. they are sufficient enough as you spend most the time either in the bath or sauna. The sauna lounge has some of the best cakes at very decent prices I... More

my wife and me often visit this resort for a couple of days to relax from our hectic life. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Part of the hotel is the resort complex with a medicinal pool, a large park with interesting objets d'art, chairs and deck chairs to relax outside in the sun. Also, there are great saunas,... More

The hotel is simple but clean and has everything needed for sleeping. It has a connection to the wellness part that is really great with several different sauna's and a thermal source bad. Staff is friendly and accurate and if you like wellness you really should consider to stay here 2 or three days. Breakfast is not very special but... More

The reviews before mine seem fairly old and outdated, so I thought I should add my feedback. The hotel was in nice condition, rooms were up to date and comfortable, nice common areas with free tea etc. I had no issues with loud people in the hotel or spa area. I was visiting family in NL but wanted a chance... More

We spend a long spa weekend break here mid may. The spa is very good, even when busy it does not feel crowded. the thermal bad is nice it being partly outside and the high salt levels makes you almost flood. The spa is very nice with a good pool, turkish bath and several sauna options. The hotel is good,... More

The hotel portion of the Fontana spa resort is practical and pleasant. It is a bit institutional with few frills, ordinary dishes, smallish rooms, plain, functional carpets etc. but very comfortable and relaxed. It was easy to like it and to feel at home. The breakfast was excellent; the service was very good; the fireplaces here and there were delicious.... More

The spa/wellness facilities are divided up into three areas. Firstly a thermal pool with pleasant gardens and some associated rooms for relaxing. This was pleasant enough, but a little busy for my taste and the changing rooms were rather basic. Swimming costumes are obligatory in this area. Secondly, the Sauna plane. This consisted of an indoor area with a large... More
