We came to Salzburgland with our 3 girls mainly for the purpose of sightseeing in the area. The location of the resort was not the best for this purpose, as most of the places we went to were in the north, and we spent to much time on the road.
As for the resort itself: we took an apartment of 8 for us 5, so it was very spacious and comfortable. We had a living room, 2 rooms with double beds (one of them a master bedroom with adjecent bathroom) and another relatively small room with a bunkbed. It was quite comfortable, but I suspect it would be too crowded for 8.
Most of the things were quite OK, but there were few things that weren't. the main thing was the fact that they didn't tell us in advance that the reception is closed by 6 pm. we arrived at 8.30, after a long journey from Viena, and had troblr to find the resort as it did not included in the GPS, and we got the wrong address from our travel agent, the voucher didn't include the correct address ect. some nice pepole from OTHER HOTEL helped us find the place. when we finally arrived, there was total darknes everywhere, no sign or note anywhere. the place looked deserted. A nice lady from the next door bar, came with us (after another girl from the bar told us that she think that the resort is closed for the summer) and called the number that was on the reception door, only then they told us that they left a key in the flowepot. Both of the women in the bar said its not the first time that lost tourists arrived at their doorstep asking for help...
the second big thing was the internet connection that were prommissed but even though we had to 15 euro deposit for the cable (no wifi- there is a wifi detected in the apartment but it is not of the resort- you only get the radiation) we couldn't use that network. something about the fact that we came from Israel and IP address. I didn't fully understand. we had to use cellular internet.
Another thing was the beds, that were uncomfortable as they were made of light wood and a cheep mattress.
other small things - no hooks in the bathroom to hang clothes or other stuff, no bath curtain or bath carpet, only one dishwasher tablet and no dishwashing soap- it's not such a big deal, but it such a low cost on the one hand and such a trouble for the guest on thr otherhand, that i would prefer to have an option at least to buy it fromthe reception in small quantities ( we bought a package of 50 tablets from the supermarket. it cost 4.5 euro. I would pay the same ammount for 5 or so to save me the trouble of looking for it).
On the positive side I should mention that when we wanted to leave early on our last day they let us do the check-out a day earlier, which was very nice and helpfull.
