“Soon part of the past...?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

In 1991 the wealthy Van Der Valk family took over De Pier for the symbolic amount of one euro. But recently it was announced that De Pier failed to attract sufficient tourist/visitors so Van Der Valk has taken its hands from De Pier. In fact it's a shame that this happens to such a distinctive and historical building. But more things are not OK, like the renovation of the boulevard: a few weeks after completion there are already signs of damage, incredible! What a pity because the area is nice with many shops, attractions like Sea Life, the beach, the sea, especially in the summer it's fun to walk on the boulevard. But De Pier, I am afraid that it has lost its magic. And on the local television TV West it was told that demolition is way cheaper than renovation .... goodbey De Pier?

“Update”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The upkeep of the Pier has been so bad that parts of it have been closed off now. It is slowly getting to be a dangerous place to be. Definitely a place to avoid now.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

If you want to feel that you are on vacation...this is the place. Very busy if the weather is nice, full of restaurants with amazing decor, you will have a great time. Again I bring my guess there between April to the mid October depending on the weather.

“Brooking down and dangerous!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Don't go there the pier should be demolished real soon. It's dirty, dangerous and unpleasant. Don't waist your time on the pier. The promenade is o.k for (little) shopping, dining and going for drinks.

“Wonderful Place to Walk & Watch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Living in Den Haag right now and came down here one afternoon with my girlfriend. Its a great place for a walk and to see the many people enjoying being so close to the sea whatever the weather. Went out on the Poer and watched people on the Bungee and then walked the entire length of the prom and back, had a few drinks at different places and some food, would highly recommend.
