Stayed there for two nights in December. The cabins were very clean and modern. One double bed, a sofa bed, a sauna, and a kitchenette. The kitchenette was quite small and it was cramped. Do not recommend for cooking/ All cabins have a personal parking lot so that was very convenient. I recommend for those who do not rent a car to request for a cabin closest to the reception as in winter, the snow gets incredibly thick and it is quite some work to pull roller bags through the snow.
Santa Clause Village itself was great fun but note that there are quite a few "Santa Clauses" around (one in the hotel reception and the other in the village itself). At the hotel reception -getting a picture taken with Santa is free BUT to get it printed out costs about 48 Euros!! At Santa Clause Village, you get a video taken of you walking up towards Santa and they take a few pictures, which is the same concept as above but way more expensive (79 Euros for the video, and four pictures). However, the Santa at the Santa Clause Village very well decorated.
Apart from that, it is a great once-in-a lifetime experience.
