Arriving with the ferry from Oslo it seemed like it was a surprise for the Hotel that the ferry carried 50 + guests, even though most had ordered a package with ferry and hotel. One person to check us in lead to 40 min waiting at 0800 in the morning with 2 small kids. Not what we had expected. Disapointing... More

WATERPARK ONLY: Third visit to The Reef Waterpark, if one can call it a waterpark considering it's small size. For 199 DKK we got entrance to the waterpark and a hamburger lunch/dinner. That is a very good deal. The waterpark has one slide and several different jacuzzis and pools inside and outside, with a fun carribean feel to it. It... More

We went here for the waterpark and were very happy with the experience. The waterpark is well themed and decorated, it is not large, with one slide and wavepool (with rainmachine, a waterfall and artificial thunder), a indoor/outdoor pool, a baby pool with a smal but fun slide, a very small but 3m deep diving pool with windows, and several...

Not being our first time at The Reef we knew what to expect. A very nice and clean hotel with a Caribbean atmosphere and amazing water park. Check-in was very fast and simple, kids were offered a pirate themed present at arrival. Room was very clean and quiet, which we loved. The Reef itself is amazing, great experience for the... More

Small, but enjoyable rooms. Good beds and well working internet connections. Very nice and friendly staff. Good breakfast and ok dinner in the restaurant. Just 100 meters walk and you can find their main street with lot of shops there. Pool area seems to be fantastic, unfortunately I´ve visited there only by business reasons and never had time to try... More

I went here again under the same circumstances as the last time, and it was more or less the same experience. Breakfast very good, rooms could be better and the waterpark is great fun. They should get some small fridges in each room, and the shower doors leaks, so water is all over the floor. The bathroom really needs a... More

Travelling with our elderly mothers we got a room near the elevator. The staff at the front desk was nice. The rooms didn't have fridges, tea-making facilities, toiletries, fan, ac etc. I'm sure it is good for families with small children because of the spa and even our mothers enjoyed the hot pool in the evening.

This was our second trip to this place, and it was as nice as the first one. To get right to the point: What's special about the hotel is that it is also a water park. Once you're checked in to your room, you take the lift back down past the reception floor and get directly to the water park... More
