“Nice hotel, very poor spa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2012

I used a package deal for one night in Strand that included a suite (Marine Deluxe), massage for two, dinner for two, sparkling wine and fruits in the room, free use of spa during the stay, free entrance to night club Str& and welcome drinks there. I chose Strand mainly for three reasons: it was quite close to the sea, the room had a bath and hotel is a spa hotel.

Overall - I liked it.

The Marine Deluxe suite. It was just great: room was spacious and nicely decorated (including two chairs, a coffee-table, kettle, fidge, hairdryer, cosy bath). The room had a huge window-area along the room looking to bay of Pärnu (fabulous sunsets!). Unfortunately it didn't have a balcony.

The food. 3-course-dinner was great. I was quite surprised to have such a dinner in Pärnu. And this dinner was included in the package (a different menu). A la carte menu seemed to be even better. Breakfast buffet was good, but I have seen better.

The spa. A real disappointment. One bigger pool, one smaller, one jacuzzi, 4 lava-rock chairs (heated chairs) and steam sauna ... for a hotel that has 187 rooms! There was one Finnish sauna in ladies' and gents' area.

Night club was usual. Music from the 90's mixed with latest hits. Although the room was on the 4th floor (night club is on the 5th) it was quiet at night.

This hotel is great to spend a romantic week-end in a suite, drink shampagne, eat well and dance. If you love spa Tervise Paradiis may be better choice.

Hotel itself is built approx. 25 years ago and had liftup ca 5 years ago. It is very usual scandinavian style hotel for older people mostly. Locations is good, just 500m from the beach. Rooms are usual and sleep quality is OK. bathroom and specially shower equipment needs upgrade. Most disturbing in this hotel is very specific smell, which stays in the corridors and rooms due to muddy soil around. Also the shower and tap water having impact from this. Nothing toxic, but still disturbing.

Room Tip: Ask room with seaview

Strand hotel offer quite a good quality for price they are asking. SPA area is not too big, there are only one sauna in the main area, and one for the seaparate men/women use. Breakfast was nice. I would recommend to stay in this hotel for young couples.

We spent a long weekend in Pärnu at Strand Spa in March. Its location is not very good if you dislike long walks, but we used the bus that stops near the hotel and taxi in late evenings (rather cheap). The lobby is small and the combined breakfast/dining premises are rather poor or let’s say ordinary. The room without balcony, but with a window that opens, was clean and quite ordinary too, but luckily with a fridge. Breakfast was poor and the atmosphere reminded more or less of DDR-times. The restaurant was very noisy in the evenings because of drunken Finnish guest. The spa was small and really nothing for us. The service was not much to talk about. We didn’t hear the noise from the disco - luckily. You can find these kinds of dull hotels all over in Scandinavia and the Baltic countries - , they function but nothing more.

Pärnu is a beautiful small town with good restaurants and picturesque streets and parks that you should visit in summertime.

To start with, this hotel does not look like a 4 star property, as advertised. Yes, technically you've got everything you expect to find in a 4 star hotel, but the quality of stuff is quite mediocre. Bathroom was tiny, shower had a broken soap dispenser on the wall, there were no extra pillows in the room, and the ones we had were just tiny. On the bright side, the room was clean, quality of breakfast was good and the dining room had plenty of space. You also get a free entrance to their SPA.

The hotel is located not really next to the sea, but it is close. You can also reach city centre easily by foot in some 20-25 minutes. There is a grocery store just acrosse the road.

With regard to price, it is very affordable, at least in autumn, although I cannot say about summer time, which is considered a top season for this sea resort.

We wanted to stay at the Scandic Hotel - but it was full. We were very pleased to be at The Strand and Spa. It is a deserved 3 or 4 star hotel on the fringes of the town and of the beach resort area. We enjoyed a sea view and a balcony (though the balcony came at the expense of space in the room). It was fairly quiet and restful for our stay - but the night club (on top floor Fridays and Saturdays) might be very noisy. The breakfast buffet was reasonably comprehensive but the presence of coach tour parties made it difficult to select food and to find somewhere to sit.

I failed to connect to the wifi - but a solitary computer terminal in the reception area seemed to be for the use of guests.

We would recommend Parnu and this hotel.

Room is OK. AirCon, Fridge but no Safe.
We stayed here at weekend and there is a Nightclub on top floor. Our rrom was on street level and you can still here the beat very loud. Impossible to sleep. We changed the room (to 101) and this one was at the real end of the large hotel. It was still possible to here the beat but OK to sleep. Restaurant we can not recommend. Breakfast is good.
