Stayed here for 5 days and I could not be happier that I ended my summer vacation here. The resort is located in the middle of greenery. From the moment we arrived, the staffs were very helpful, really 5-star service from the resort!. They also have a hallway with pictures of the family, which was really interesting to look at...

This is a great place for multi generations to be together. Lots for kids to do, and lots for parents or grandparents to enjoy. The hiking is wonderful and the food and hospitality outstanding. They have a variety of pools to enjoy.

After having cancelled a trip to the Med during autumn break we decided last minute to finally try the Sonnenalp which we heard so much about. This really is a very nice place. It has a lot of tradition but they try to keep everything updated. Our room was of top quality (local design) and size, only the bathroom could... More

We stayed again with the family in one of their Chalets for a week and had a great time with three generation at this lovely place. The new restaurant and grill is very nicely designed and an enrichment for the resort. Very critical this time was the service in the restaurants. While the staff did work hard and fast there...

The most relaxing place EVER No loud obnoxious kids or teens--no cell phones were heard ringing-the food, the shopping inside the hotel was terrific. The staff was super friendly--and helpful--especially Madelaine and Benjamin at the front desk. It is impressive how many speak English--wish I spoke German--. The pool, spa-- 2 golf courses--I could go on and on. Just suffice... More

There are lots of fantastic things about the Sonnenalp, and a few less stellar ones. For families like us, the kids' areas are fantastic and the hotel offers a superb range of activities addressing all age categories, especially babies and smaller children. I have not seen a comparable offering elsewhere. The food was good to very good, yet a bit... More
