This hotel is a good vacation alternative of any Balaton hotels. The rooms are simple but modern and adequate. Bed is ok, small flat screen tv, air conditioning. Every room has a terrace with a side view on the lake/river. Indoor spa and thermal pools and outdoor swimming pool. These are not huge, but reasonable for the size of the hotel. The room rate included half board with buffet, including children menu. Food was not outstanding but it was quite ok.
In addition to the main building there are large bungalows, but I cannot comment on those as I have not been in them.
The biggest draw is the location. The hotel is on the shore of the Tisza-pond. The view from the pooldeck is amazing. There are hidden corners in the garden with benches to chill out and relax watching the water and the sunset. There were enough sunbeds and chairs, you did not need to fight for them. There is also a poolside bar, with a very kind lady bartender. In general, most of the staff was quite friendly.
The hotel seems to be a favorite of families, most guests had small children. There was animation for children, playroom and also a sandy area near the water to build sandcastles. Across the hotel there is an "Adventure island" with wall climbing, ropes and other outdoor toys.
Boat (and bycicle) rent is available. In fact, I say it is quite advisable. The hotel has its own pier, where you can moor your rented boat. You can swim in the lake as there is a nearby beach, you can canue or take a motorboat excursion in the various canals of the pond or on the Tisza-river. Do not miss this, the lake is a natural reserve with birdlife, water-lilies, etc, and it is great fun and very easy to navigate your motorboat on it. (Tip: 40 minutes motorboat-ride is the Hajovendeglo, a boatrestaurant on the Tisza.)
All in all, very pleasant experience. You can easily spend a few days here or even more if you take short trips around the Tisza-lake, to Tokaj or Hortobagy.
