“OK, but not worth 4 stars”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We spent a weekend in Makkum and picked the only 4-stars hotel in town.
The hotel is not more than "OK" and certainly not worth that 4th star.
We had a room on the front side (135) quite a lot of noise from the square in front. Windows had not been cleaned for a long time as the spiders and their webs could tell.
Poor, cheap furniture no safe, no minibar. Cool, unpersonal room.
Bathroom is too dark and becomes a swimming pool when you take a shower - problem must be known as a squeegee is part of the equipment in the bathroom....
Good food and friendly staff in the restaurant, not pretending to be more than what it is.

The room has a modern look. A car / bike is necessary for some distraction. The ice cream bar belonging to the hotel closes at 6:00 pm the doors. The other bars and restaurants close at 9:00 pm. Dining at the hotel is possible, but you must reserve. Taking place on the terrace without any order, no problem.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are located on the side of the terrace. Does this take into account any noise. There...

This was booked by a tour organizer so we had no expectation. Was favorably impressed when we rode up. Very clean, efficient friendly check-in, and a very nice clean room. The room is slightly larger than your average room. The restaurant was very nice and the food presented well and tasted great.

Standard size room. Breakfast was varied and good, even a nice cup of cappucino was offered.
Good variety of dishes in the dinner restaurant with healthy prices.
During off-season ther were not many guest, so very quiet.
Close to the beach and I think it would be VERY nice during summer.
Clean and attractive hotel that I recommend
