I love this hotel. It is beautiful, in a great location and the 4 person suites are magnificent. It's only a pity that there are a few things that avoid me giving it top rating. The showers will make a pool of water on the floor however you position the shower curtain. Worse, the hotel looks very understaffed. At breakfast... More

It has been the second time that we have been to this hotel as a family, and we took again the family suite with a large living room overlooking the beach & the island. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable - having this separate living room really makes a difference when spending the whole time with our three... More

The hotel is beautifully located near the sea in no where. You can listen and hear the silence, the wind, the birds and sometime the sea in the background. It's a great place to relax, but not ideal if you want to get to the villages and you don't have a car. If you rent a bike you can get... More

We stayed here during the Orerol festival and as a result the prices were greatly inflated. We paid approximately $280 per night for a ground floor standard room. Unfortunately the couple we were traveling with made the arrangements without telling us about the exorbitant prices and so we were shocked with the price especially since what we got was equivalent...

the location is great, typical Dutch sea and dunes scenery,an endless beach, excellent rental bikes and a nice beach cafe down on the beach. The hotel is big for Dutch standards, it has a somewhat Cape Cod feeling. Rooms are spacious, beds are typically Dutch, no king size, no queens, but small and narrow beds. However sleeping is a joy... More
