“OK, but not worth 4 stars”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2012

We spent a weekend in Makkum and picked the only 4-stars hotel in town.
The hotel is not more than "OK" and certainly not worth that 4th star.
We had a room on the front side (135) quite a lot of noise from the square in front. Windows had not been cleaned for a long time as the spiders and their webs could tell.
Poor, cheap furniture no safe, no minibar. Cool, unpersonal room.
Bathroom is too dark and becomes a swimming pool when you take a shower - problem must be known as a squeegee is part of the equipment in the bathroom....
Good food and friendly staff in the restaurant, not pretending to be more than what it is.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

The room has a modern look. A car / bike is necessary for some distraction. The ice cream bar belonging to the hotel closes at 6:00 pm the doors. The other bars and restaurants close at 9:00 pm. Dining at the hotel is possible, but you must reserve. Taking place on the terrace without any order, no problem.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are located on the side of the terrace. Does this take into account any noise. There...

This was booked by a tour organizer so we had no expectation. Was favorably impressed when we rode up. Very clean, efficient friendly check-in, and a very nice clean room. The room is slightly larger than your average room. The restaurant was very nice and the food presented well and tasted great.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Standard size room. Breakfast was varied and good, even a nice cup of cappucino was offered.
Good variety of dishes in the dinner restaurant with healthy prices.
During off-season ther were not many guest, so very quiet.
Close to the beach and I think it would be VERY nice during summer.
Clean and attractive hotel that I recommend
