“DAMONA HOTEL”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Less than expected. Worn interior, but the rooms were ok. Pretty confused communication inside the hotel. Service personnel nice and polite but doesn`t speak english. Missing shampoo and slippers in the room which i would expect for 4 stars hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors are hardest to reach by the elevator.

The hotel is definatelly not 4 star class. It's worn, but quiet. But all in all OK, especially considering the price (106 euros for 2 nights).

I felt like this place was a recovery place for older retired people from Austria.

In a 4-star hotel I would expect shampoo, conditioner and lotion, but there wasn't any. There was general soap from dispencer only, and 2 vat-pads, which did not get replaced after being used.

The receptionist on arrival didn't speak English, only German (which we didn't speak). At check-out another receptionist did speak English though.

The breakfast was a bit borring and not so tastefull.

Wireless internet in my room worked fine (slow but fine).

The hotel pools were also all right, except the pensionists in it:) There was spa pool, warm pool and ordinary pool as well as 2 fine saunas (finnish and turkish).

In general the town is nothing, you have to keep driving for activities.

I think if I ever end up there, I will stay somewhere else, although assuming the price I can only be happy.

We have stayed in this hotel with our children a few weeks ago. We love the pools of the Aqualand, the SAUNA SHOWS, but we are always most excited about their breakfast and dinner times. The selection and quality is excellent, especially when it is with live dinner music.

Room Tip: Luxury superior rooms on the south side have nice view

We are regulars in this place. Had been many years, probably 8 or so, since we got our first child born. We primarily go here to relax, which always happens. The best part for me is the SAUNA SHOWS (10:30 - honey+salt, 13:30 with Ice, 15:30 - with fruits (and sometimes honey). This is the best part for a sauna lover. Anyway, the wellness section called "Aqualand" is a great indoor pool complex, ideal for youngsters and small kids. Second greatest thing is the FOOD. These guys never make a mistake! There is always great food no matter what day you spend there. Worth 5 stars in itself!
Third: Massages. I personally love the original Thai massage, with actual Thai masseuse ladies, it really helps you relax. But there are several other kinds too
Fourth: The kid nursery. You can leave the kids here, with friendly animators, while you go for your massage or sauna run. This was one of the main reason we started to come back here... Never had an issue, that your kids can't let you relax... Because (c'mon you feel this too), sometimes this can be the case.
Fifth: Everyone is SMILING. Including the cleaning ladies :) They greet you, the smile, and they are helpful.I don't know how they do it, but it's such a rare thing still in Hungary!!!
Six: They keep up the good quality. This has been like this for YEARS. Never falters! This makes you happy and want to come back for more. BTW they also give some discounts for returing guests.

Room Tip: If you actually got a wrong room - go back to reception and complain (we changed our room this time...

We have stayed in this hotel with our children several times over the past few years. We love the pools, the tropical shower, the sauna, but we are always most excited about their breakfast and dinner times. The selection and quality is excellent, especially when it is with live dinner music. Best dishes in the area for sure. Can highly recommend!

A bit of a paradox, this hotel. The reception is friendly, people at the front desk are helpful and flexible (e.g. we booked a family appartement, having understood this would have a separate room for our kids of 4 & 7- this was not the case so we could easily move to two separate rooms at no extra cost). The rooms were clean, spacious, well-kept. Wi-fi in the hotel came in handy. The food was never disappointing: tasty local cuisine combined with international dishes 'en buffet' (but all a bit greasy, rather winter-time dishes and you never knew exactly what you ate, unless you read Hungarian of course). The waiters came whirling through the dining room and grasped plates as if it were a contest, not really relaxing, especially if they're on the edge of being friendly. On every door, wall... you get nicely printed lists of what you cannot do, should not do and must not do (in fact, this is something you encounter not only in the hotel, but it is not very welcoming). The hotel walls are immediately surrounded by public space, so there's no small garden, only a couple of chairs set as a terrass, which gives a bit an enclosed feel. The crafty indoor pool is certainly all right (if you obey all orders...), but in summer you long for an outdoor swim, which is not possible in Men Dan (you can go to a public thermal park just outside the hotel, but that's a mass-event). Zalakaros itself is not really a Nr 1 touristic destination, but you're not that far away from the Kiss-Balaton and the Balaton lake itself, with plenty of things to do and see.
