We stayed at the Holiday Club Saimaa in July for 4 nights. The hotel itself is good quality hotel with lot's of things to do in neighborhood. Our room was clean and it was ok for 2 adults and 2 kids. But if you need more space, look for other than standard rooms. The hotel breakfast was ok and normal... More

We had a three-night stay in the very new 'Villas' - actually an apartment block - in a two-bedroom flat. The flat was very spacious with a lovely sauna and two bathrooms. It was extremely well fitted-out and comfortable, although perhaps slightly less well-provisioned than other Holiday Club properties we have stayed in and a few curiosities like the lack... More

Our family with 2 small children is a regular visitor in Holiday Club Saimaa. The main reason for that is the excellent aquapark located at the hotel: it offers something for the whole family. The adults love the Sauna World upstairs and kids the water fountain & light show. There is also an outdoor swimming pool (palju) and smoke sauna.... More

Friendly, prompt service, clean rooms, excellent beds, activities for the children, decent food. All these are basic elements for a good family hotel. Holiday Club Saimaa succeeds in all fronts! In addition, it is situated in a very beautiful location, where there was a psychiatric hospital until year 2000...

For a hotel like this, I'm very disappointed to say my stay was an extremely horrible one. I stayed in the club hotel area on the fourth floor and I would like to say that first off, the room service was very slow. Room service comes usually every 3-4 days. When they do come, sometimes they might mop the floor... More

We stayed at castle room which was spacious enough for two people. Room was in penthouse and the sight was, as promised to lake Saimaa. Really nice view, quiet to sleep, good breakfast. Only thing questioning was the quietness, i think there was a half of the hotel empty? Well we liked for one night from the flat and view.

We spent 2,5 hours in the spa / indoor waterpark. On that day it wasn't croudy which was nice. There's slides and tubes for the kids and also water massage spots for the adult. The lights and decorations were beautiful. We visited the sauna world which included 4 different saunas and a cool water swimming pool. You could also cool... More
