As a means to learn our kids swimming we went to this unusual combination of hotel and adventure pool. We did not have any other expectations than it would be child-friendly and safe. We were not disappointed! Meanwhile, some interesting cultural events took place in Frederikshavn (Tordenskioldsdagarna and "open house" at the Navy Base). We could easily walk with our... More

Had a great day with the kids, would prefer to visit the place outside summer holidays next time. The place has a lot of different pools, and en great water slide. Pool mostly inside but also 2 outside pools. All in all worth a visit.

The kids loved the bathing area, it is actually very good. we signed up for a latish bufet (8 pm), and discovered that the restaurant closed at 9... the content of the bufet was ok but did equally cater for the more...

The reef is a mini theme park hotel with an indoor waterpark for kids preferably below 15. As it's a relatively small waterpark it has one waterslide, several yacusis and a bigger pool that has wave machines.
