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

Positive : Nice, spacious and clean rooms. Negative : Understaffed reception because of which we had to stand for an hour in the queue to check into our room. Air conditioner was completely non functional in our room and it was very hot and dry, complaining to the reception did not help in any way. Breakfast was very minimum, not... More

We chose this hotel because the spa is only a few years old and in nearby (1km) there is a full-fledged golf course. We chose the adult side of the hotel (Castle). The overall was disappointing relative to expectations. The hotel area, waterfront and front part of the golf course are either in the midst of building area or right... More

Great place for families and people travelling with kids. The spa is nice and new, there's a daycare on premises and the outdoor stuff adds a great flavor. The sauna area of the spa was surprisingly cold and the smoke sauna up on the roof was a little bit dated (stangely enough) but the "stage area" a raised platform with... More
