It is an amazing place if you travel with children, the swimingpools are fantastic and my children of 4 years old enjoyed a lot, and the adults too. The room is correct, a bit old fashioned and the breakfast is really complet.

I found my room to be more Functional than anything else, it had most of what you needed but there was no comfort, nothing special about it, Basic mattress, Basic furniture, no tea or coffee in the room. All very clean. The staff in the hotel are great, friendly and helpful. This place is great if you have kids, the... More

We really like the Reef. It is very children friendly but the restaurant is limited. Second visit with two year since the last one, and the buffet etc was exactely the same. Good beds. Nice rooms. Close to the ferry and the rest of the city. Nice swimming pools.

Though this is a travel destination to a lot of Norwegian and Swedish families and we came just in the most busy high season period, the hotel seemed very well prepared to handle this: Check in and out went smooth and most impressive: The buffet breakfast in the big breakfast rooms also was a very positive surprise. No long queues,... More

Great hotel with a large in-house water park with slides. Lots of other activities for children as well, and a nice breakfast. Spacious family rooms available. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway.

We mainly stayed at this hotel because of the waterworld, and we were not disappointed. Lots of pools and fun for the children. Cafe and bar inside. The hotel bit was only so-so The room was quite small and was not really made up on the second day, only the trash was emptied. However this was not a big deal... More

First of all, the WiFi was great, just to get that out of the way. The waterland was also good, nice theme and a good variety of pools. I think it took me 3 hours to get bored, which is great, in my opinion. I do NOT recommend staying at this hotel! The reception wasn't helpful, when we asked were... More
