“peacefully perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Fantastic out of season location to chill out -great views 360 degrees with lovely views from the balconies of each room. The Restaurant is a real find so don't waste time going out looking for an alternative just take some time to enjoy the sunset. Breakfast was good -plenty of choice and again you just cannot fail to be impressed by the all around views

Having been to Makkum a few times now, I find it a wonderful base for business and leisure in Holland. The rooms are spacious, modern and clean with fine attention to detail. The restaurant offers a wide and interesting range of Dutch cuisine suitable nearly for every palate. It's an excellent place to relax whether it is after a hard working day or after a day of site seeing or strolling along the beach. There is nothing better than a nice cool beer whilst listening to the crackle of the large open fire in the restaurant area.

Room Tip: For surfers, I would recommend a ground floor room with a patio right outside your room window.

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
