This resort comprises timeshare apartments and an adjacent hotel. I am reviewing the timeshare. This is a high-end apartment complex and our apartment had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the pretty marina. The apartment itself was of a 5-star standard,wooden floors, modern and spacious on two levels. The lower level open plan area comprised a kitchen with range cooker/oven, large fridge freezer, all very modern, very good quality utensils, cutlery etc., a shower room with WC and a double bedroom, large flat-screen TV. Upstairs, was an open plan landing and bedroom, a spa bath fitted with radio/CD player and nozzle lights that continually changed the water colour, a sink, a separate WC and a utility room. There is a bar adjacent to the lobby and two restaurants, one a pizza eatery. Outside, directly opposite is an open-air restaurant and bar at the edge of the marina (summer months only).
The Holiday Club is situated a 15 minute bus ride from the city centre (they run every 20 minutes or so). The bus stop is located just outside the entrance gates. You can buy a discounted pass for however many days you want at the tourist office in Tampere railway station. There is a small grocery store about 500 metres away from the gates. Be aware that alcohol laws in Finland mean that you cannot buy wine or spirits in grocery stores, only beer. You need to go to Stockmann or Anttila department stores in Tampere city centre (look for the red Alco sign) to buy wine or spirits. Also you can only buy beer on Sundays, no other alcohol. The bus stops more or less outside Stockmann (which has an excellent supermarket in the basement) and is within a short walk of the railway station.
We've stayed in a number of timeshares in Europe and this is the best so far. We were not asked for either a deposit or payment for utilities which is a first for us in Europe and reflects the upscale nature of the resort.. Reception staff are helpful and efficient. Luggage store facilities.
Superb resort, thoroughly recommended and deservedly so.
