My wife, daughters, and I recently spent a restful 3 nights at the Apartment-Hotel. The location is perfect: right on the ocean and close to the national park. If you want to go into Haarlem, it's only a 15-minute bus ride and the bus stop is right across the street. We drove into Haarlem and it's a quick 7-minute drive. We were in apartment 126 and had a side view down the beach. The weather didn't cooperate (who would have thought snow at the end of March!) but we had an enjoyable time anyway. The beach clubs were in full swing, but the apartment is fairly soundproof, so the noise didn't disturb us. The apartment had a nicely-equipped kitchen and 1 1/2 baths. My daughters said that the sofa sleeper was very comfortable.
There are grocery stores located fairly close (within a 10-minute drive), which is pretty convenient. The apartment provides one parking space in their gated lot, which is very convenient since the nearby public parking lots get very crowded when the beach crowd arrives. The apartment allows dogs and ours certainly enjoyed the beach, even in the cold water. The large park near the apartment has miles of trails to walk, ride horses, bike, or jog.
We would also recommend Orbitz, the restaurant located on the ground floor. It's an interesting restaurant featuring different Asian food. You pay one price and it's all you can eat for 2 1/2 hours. Each person is allowed to order three small dishes at a time and can order more once they've finished.
Tip: The apartment doesn't have a hair dryer, so make sure you pack one.
We will definately be returning when we want to get away to the beach.
