“Great weekend gate away and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

I have spent two nights at the Balnea Esplanade Palace hotel in Piestany and was very satisfied with my experience.I have tried one of the spa procedures and it was great. I also spend some time at the pool (both indoors and outdoors) and it was also very nice ..the water is hot, the snacks provided by the pool were also very tasty (especially the poppy seeds strudel you have to try it its sooo delicious!) But my biggest reward this time around was the food at the Seasons restaurant! i think they have a new chef there and the food was absolutely amazing!! the selection was big, the food was seasoned properly, meat cooked to perfection ..many side dishes, healthy options were also available..the staff was nice and friendly.. so overall my stay was very nice and i will recommend this hotel to anybody.

Spent a weekend in this hotel located in the middle of a huge beautiful park, what a wonderful time we have had. Even though it's furnished in a basic style it's amazingly clean and well serviced, I liked the sleeping mattress in particular, heaven. There's a wide choice of food on buffet as well as possibility of dining a'la cart. Everybody can find something they like and think is yummy.The manager Mr. Mohammed overlooking every need the guests could have, very helpful and friendly. The choice of treatments in the SPA was overwhelming, I did try couple of them, it was an amazing experience, pure bliss and relax. There's a big swimming pool which stretches from the part inside which is covered to outside part, with lounge chairs to catch some sun. I stayed on Panorama floor, which has a great spacious terrace with tables with chairs and lounge chairs, where you can enjoy a cup of fantastic bio blends of lose tea which are available at the lobby of panorama floor together with fresh fruits, nice and relaxing with a book in your hand. Not to forget, there's a place where the evenings have to be spent…Retro bar. With live music and decor of good old glory days of former Czechoslovakia, couldn't believe how much fun this was. The drinks were delish and prepared "properly". I absolutely love this place, I had a really good time and would definitely come back. I highly recommend it to anybody, singles, families, couples. :) J.

Room Tip: Go for Panorama floor.

I was in Balnea Esplanade in Piestany in summer, but when I am friend from Belgium wanted to go to some spa in Slovakia, I again decided to go to this one. I knew, we will relax and enjoy spa in this hotel, as it has a lot of space and light, great food and nice service with good treatments. I was also curious, how the new reconstructions ended up - and I was more then surprised!
I enjoyed it again, even more this time, as I stayed there during the whole week-end.
Eva

Room Tip: I am suggesting especially the new Panorama floor.

This hotel is completely renovated. All rooms look clean ,with basic furniture .the elevator takes you to the entrance of the wellness SPA. You are allocated a table in one of the dining rooms which will be used through all your stay.Unfortunately the dining rooms have the atmosphere of a refectory of a boarding school.!!!food very bad no creativity at all , same food during all our stay,unattractive presentation of the buffet.The personnel is not very friendly lack of communication
Because of the language very poor English. No room service.
The treatments at the SPA compensate for everything.

After few months we came back to recover once again. New Balneo is really the best in Europe we believe.
Service from arriving on reception, over huge and clean room, perfect pool and excellent food...everything and everyone just great.
If you want to have a perfect time this is the place you should go...
Thanks once again to everyone

Amazingly beautifully located in the midst of the pleasant green and tranquil environment of the park, in the central part of Piestany's spa island. Truly loved every bit of it! Being a lonely traveler, I enjoyed the stay, the first greet from the staff welcoming at the door and the warm hello from the receptionist, it just eases the jetlagged stress!

While in the room the best thing any person/guest would do is, dump their body on the bed!! And ahh... it’s comfortably relaxing! The view from the balcony was breath taking, the greenery and fresh air...

After being to the cafe downstairs "cafe bar" soon after few trips there, the staff/waiters know exactly whats your favorite! Specially, the Moroccan Manager there, Mr. Mohammed, really did give me good service at the Café and i also managed to steal some few tips from him of the best food served here at Balnea Esplanade .
Many best things can be found under this huge roof. Sauna world, indoor and outdoor pools with various water attractions including massage jets, hot tubs, and deckchairs. Also Free WiFi.
Enjoyable activity is to take relaxing strolls through the on-site shopping passages, sit back in the cosy coffee bar or enjoy musical entertainment in the night bar.
I would strongly recommend Balnea Esplanade for families and groups and also single ladies like myself!!
5 ++++ stars for this one!
