I was told this area was VERY busy during the summer months...and although the place had no vacancies...it was not that busy. Having said that, the pool was packed and only stayed open til 5p each day....so there was no 'adult' hours for relaxation, etc. I was also a bit disturbed that there was no electric outlet NEAR any mirror. Ladies, try doing your hair from memory!! ARGH! You also must rent hair dryers...they do not offer them as part of the room. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The room was spacious as well. Internet connection was easy.... Bicycle rentals were fairly inexpensive at $10 Euro pp. We rode to Edam one day...very nice.
If you are not into drinking, there isn't much to do after 5p, except eat dinner. Shops close, pool is closed, grocery is closed, ferry to merken is closed...ONLY pubs are open and a few restaurants.
Something for the 'fountain soda fans'... ICE is hard to find. They do not offer ice in the hotel and even when you ask in restaurants, they often don't understand. So, expect bottled 'ice tea' and bottled' ice water' and bottled 'coca cola', etc. I didn't order any mixed drinks, so I'm not sure how that works.
