We came here for 4 days. We paid approx $1000 per night for our suite, a complete waist of money! The service is just horrific, don’t even consider asking for any favors or you can expect attitude from the staff. Everything takes FOREVER. Our room wasn’t cleaned by 3 pm so I called 2 times for someone to come and clean it. When I arrived in our suite at 5pm the room was still not clean. Eventually someone came and made the beds. The tables were not wiped, the bathroom was not properly cleaned. The rooms are very old fashioned. The hallways smell awfully old. When we arrived to the breakfast it took them 20 min to clean a vacant table, even though they knew we were waiting. The breakfast wasn’t great, don’t expect much more then you would get in a motel. We were misinformed about the opening times for the beach. By the time we arrived (which was the time the receptionist told us it would be opening) all the beds and cabanas were apparently fully booked, even though the entire place was empty. The beach is full of seaweed and trash, it is not being cleaned. We were told by most other hotel guests not to eat in the hotel because the food is not very good, so we ate every night at Medinis, an Italian restaurant next door. Don’t even bother booking this place. We will not come back

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. We are sorry that we could not convince you of our service in its entirety. I would be happy to go into your detailed points. The service deficiencies in housekeeping that you reported are not meant to be. We would like to apologize for this. We have already discussed this with our senior housekeeper in order to avoid such deficiencies in the future. Our ensemble was built with the first buildings from 1793 as the first seaside resort in Germany. We have adapted our rooms with the equipment to the premises without disregarding modern technology. We are sorry that this combination did not appeal to you. However, we cannot understand the odour nuisance in the hallways that you described. Due to the situation with CoVid-19 we are forced to allocate seating times for our guests for breakfast. If guests appear outside the times discussed with them, a seating is usually not possible or only possible with a delay. We therefore apologize for this. We are sorry that on the day of arrival you were not informed about the correct opening times of our beach outlet. Such mistakes should not happen. The beach itself belongs to the municipality as everywhere in Germany. Therefore it is possible that sea grass was lying on the shore, because the beach cleaning is beyond our influence. However, we strongly reject the fact that there was garbage in the water or on the beach. We are really sorry that you did not visit our restaurants at all on the recommendation of other guests. Our chef de cuisine is very meticulous in arranging his menu and coordinating the individual dishes. However, since you did not visit us, you cannot make any statement about the quality of our dishes. We would be happy to convince you of our service during your next visit. With kind regards Thies C. Bruhn General Manager

I became acquainted with this hotel having watched romantic films in the TV in the Romance Channel in Austria. I was stunned with the beauty of the buildings and the surroundings of this place. My husband, who is German, found the exact spot and we decided to visit this beautiful hotel. Built on a North Sea beach, it consists of many buildings 4-5 of them looking like small palaces. The gardens and the club on the beach are wonderful. The rooms are very nice and ours was very spacious and had a magnificent view on the beach. The restaurants, bars, spa etc. were fantastic, only you have to change building every time: the spa is a separate building and the same applies for the breakfast. I would have no problem during the summer, but from September onwards, if it rains it becomes a bit difficult. All is perfect : breakfast, food, service etc. I would recommend it for about 2- 3 days only, because it is extremely expensive and what you need to see, can be seen in this short time. Unless it is summer and one wants to spend a week and swim, too.

We thought only the english knew how to serve afternoon tea, but this hotel is just as good with a wonderful array of sandwiches and cakes. Even their cups of tea were enjoyable. The other fantastic part of this hotel is its setting on the beach. Should be wonderful in the summertime.

My family and I enjoyed a very pleasant stay at this elegant grand hotel on the beach. In the sunshine it is truly stunning and contrary to other reviews, we all found the service in all areas to be excellent perhaps because the hotel was quieter at the end of the season. My family enjoyed the spa facilities and the restaurants (separate reviews) and the beach facilities. The reason for the four star rating is that they attempted to charge us for a meal on a date when we were not there and double charged us for the valet parking. This was corrected but should not have happened at this level of hotel. The valet parking at 25 euros a day seemed a bit steep and charging to use the cycles and beach seats also seemed excessive. However having a family breakfast on the sunlit terrace of the kurhaus will be long remembered. The breakfast choice could have been better for this level of hotel but a range of food choices were available.

Yes, this hotel is a true grand hotel. Unfortunately with an extreme service problem. We had a great suite with a direct sea view. The sun was shining, everything could have been so nice. But it was just shameful. The breakfast takes place on a terrace with around 200 (!) Guests. Hello, we are talking about a 5 star deluxe hotel. At 11 o'clock in the morning it was impossible to get a table. We wait nearly 15 minutes. My ordered scrambled eggs with crabs did not come even after an hour. Forgotten! The harsh announcement came that it was time to close the buffet. At four in the afternoon our room was not done. The next day in the sushi bar worked exactly one serving force. She tried hard. But she had no idea about Japanese food. However, the Sashimi had nothing to do with Sashimi ... Hugh thick slices of tasteless fish. The same thing at the beach bar. Self-service! But beach chairs to hire for 14 EUR the day. No beach service! The young man at the counter just shrugged his shoulders ... Well, there's more or less nothing to eat except wraps anyway ... The highlight was the check out. On the bill, I found a massage that we definitely had not had. I pointed out the lady at the reception. Her answer: "Could happen!". No, that must not happen in such a house with these prices and this claim. The hotel will not see us again. The gourmet restaurant Friedrich Franz but certainly! But I write about it a separate review.

Dear guest, Thank you for your review. Yours experiences will help us to improve our service for you and all the other guests. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We recommend all our guests to go to breakfast during off-peak hours to avoid waiting periods. As a hotel with 200 rooms we have to seat many guests while high season. This can cause waiting times in peak hours. That the service team has forgotten your orders should not happen. We are sorry to hear that our Sushi Bar meals didn't match your taste. Be affirmed that our sushi and all the other meals are on highest quality and made by an approved sushi master. Outside the direct surrounding of our Beach Bar we do have self-service which is announced by signs when you left the bar area. We want to apologize us for the error on the Bill. You are right, that should not happen anyway. We are sorry to hear that you will refrain from another stay here at Heiligendamm. Kind Regards Thies C. Bruhn Executive Director
