We just spent a long family (2 adults and one 8 year old) weekend on the beautiful island of Terschelling. We chose Paal 8 because of its location - very close to the beach and surrounded by dunes. As it turned out, a family suite was only a couple of Euros more expensive, than a double room with an extra... More

We took advantage of the special 3 for 2 nights deal at the hotel and we were not disappointed! The facilities at the hotel were great swimming pool, steam and sauna, all great after a day of exploring the island. We booked a suite and it was HUGE, 2 bedrooms, separate bathroom and toilet and a massive living area with... More

Hotel Paal 8 is a suitable basis from which the energetic traveller can explore Terschelling, using the network of foot and cycle paths or the few roads. Terschelling on The Netherlands north coast is a relatively small island. It offers an interesting variety of landscapes on a small scale- broad sandy beaches on the North Sea coast and extensive mud... More

We very much enjoyed our fall vacation at the Sandton Hotel Paal 8. It has a great location somewhat on its own. The staff were excellent in booking and preparing for our travel.

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...
