This resort looks like a place "in the middle of nowhere", so do not forget to bring your bicycles! It´s a flat area around with almost no cars in the streets and you can easily reach very nice "points of interests" within 25km.
Our trips on bicycles:
1.from the Hotel to Lenti (the nearest city with exchange office, where you get official rates with no risk)
2.from the Hotel to BAJÁNSENYE (village with a very good restaurant called Berek halászkert, you can sit outside by their private lake and enjoy domestic hungarian kitchen)
3.from the Hotel to Felsoszenterzsébet (small village with BioFarm, where you can try and buy homemade goat´s cheese or any kind of meat,etc.)
4.from the Hotel to Moravske Toplice /Slovenia/ (city with thermal spa and big Aquapark, lots of people, but very crazy tobogans included), also longest golf resort in Slovenia available.
5.from the Hotel to Slovenia (this hotel is on the border with Slovenia and on the same way to Moravske Toplice we found lots of "wine-routes", where you can try and buy slovenian wine, the one we recommend is behind small village Filovci and the name of the route is "Trnavsky breg", own by Franc Puhan, nice place to eat and drink Modry Pinot!
6.from the Hotel to Márokfold (nearest village to the resort, where you can find "Energypark" - good place for people who likes mysthical/spiritual places, believe in energies,etc.). People who don´t believe can try archery at the same place.
Abbázia country club is great for horse-riding. The lessons are given by professionals Christine and Gábor. Both are kind and patient. You can easily communicate in english, german, french, hungarian. They have well kept and smart horses.
This area is also great for fishing. I recommend the fishing resort in Lenti (we mentioned the city already), you can reach it either on bicycle or by car. The price for day licence is 1500HUF/6EURO and all you just need is your own equipment. This resort is great fishing environment with snack bar. The other such as Csesztreg or Bulsosard are nice too, but much more complicated to get the licence, you have to register too and you pay much more at the end).
Abbázia country resort has own swimming pool outside, which is clean and great refreshment in the summer.
It also has wellness (sauna and whirpool), whirpool is often full and we think they put too much chlorine in it. Sauna was good only on second level, close to the heating place, because they had sort of of ventilation under the door. In our opinion this ventilation is too strong and let too much air go in, which makes the sauna colder.
The resort has restaurant, but unfortunately we haven´t managed to try it for two reasons: we used kitchen in our room and tried restaurants in surrounded area.
At 8am every morning there is a bakery delivery, you can buy fresh bread, cakes, etc.
We could also buy fruits/vegetables in front of our hotel.
Tennis, table tennis,badminton or fireplace is available at the hotel.
It´s no problem to speak in english with the staff at the hotel, but outside people understands much better german.
You can pay by card at the reception, not at the hotel restaurant though. For surrounding area its much better to have cash ready (forints) or Euro in Slovenia.
We find and travelled through RCI to this resort and have no problem.
