Strandhotel Buren aan Zee is just a wonderful hotel. Its location just a few steps of the Buren beach overlooking the beach and (if on the top floors) the sea. We stayed in a beach facing suit which has a big hallway, spacey living and more than adequate bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom is equipped with a multi feature shower cabin; something we do not need nor specifically value, some may however.
The hotel and rooms are quite luxurious, impecable of quality and spotlessly clean. The balcony is a bit different than you might be used to, but ranges from adequate in size to quite bog. You can actually sit out of the wind and rain.
Soundwise: the only noises we heart during our stay were other room doors slamming. A common problem in hotels. Nothing major though, since most guests are peacelovers themselves and take care not to let the doors slam full speed into the locks. Outside of the hotel nothing happens after 8 in the evening anymore, so no noises coming from that way.
Room rates include a full buffet breakfast, which is just very good. Nice coffee options!
Hotel offers (like any place on Ameland) bike rentals for very little money. We required one kids bicycle which they promised us to be on site (free of charge) within the hour. We in the end choose to pick ot up ourselves, but this just shows the hotel's commitment to making your stay as relaxed as possible.
To add to this: when reception learned that we were leaving very early on our day of check out, they immediately offered to prepare a breakfast box for us to take with us. We hadn't even considered the "breakfast issue", but they solved it proactively and for free. Just great!
No downsides? Yup one, free WiFi was not working inside our room, only outside the room in the hallway in front of the elevators. A common problem since it was there that we joined our neighbours from the room next door to surf the web. This could be improved to top the hotel service up 100%. If you're connected Internet speed is fast at any time. Ameland is a nice place to forget about the Internet though!
This hotel offers real, real good value for the euro and it is not only for that that I will definitely return here!
