Been there three times, decent rooms and great restaurant. The restaurant service is quite ok, the serving was pretty fast even though the restaurant was really crowded. One time, we served the "papansi cu dulceata" (a Romanian dessert similar with donuts with jam and sour cream) which were underdone and not sweet at all but the "clatite brasovene" (pancakes with cheese, raisins and sour cream) were delicious: a beautiful combination of sweet and sour.

I recommend the "bulz ciobanesc", a speciality with grilled polenta, cheese, sour cream, pork sausages, red onion and bacon. I was surpised by the grilled polenta and the sausages, which seemd homemade (though not sure...).

I didn't like the espresso, very expensive and with no flavor.

The swimming pools are quite little but they are suitable for children as they are not too deep.

I noticed that they built a bigger swimmimg-pool, hardly wait to try it in summer.

I was surprised that they added a fitness instructor, although I was a little dissapointed by the opening hours of the fitness hall: from 10 until 20.

If you want to go to a nice place in the Bran-Moieciu area, Vila Bran is the right choice.
The rooms are nice, the food is ok and you have plenty of space to walk and have fun in the nature. Also lots of acrivities: pool, wall climbing, camp fire, hose riding, flying fox and other sport activities.
Very good view to the Bran Castle and Piatra Craiului mountains.

Went there for a five days holiday and was impressed by the services, the surroundings and the nice people working there. Made the reservation in time, arrived there, stood at Vila 10, the room was big enough to make us feel comfortable, the bathroom also big enough having a hydromassage tube. The temperature was 25 degrees C at least in the room, most of the time too hot for us, outside open air during the coldest days was -7.5. It's nice because most of the time you can spend it there, they have a nice entertaining schedule for children and adults, indoor pool (too small for my taste, me being from the seaside) games room with air hockey, ping pong and more, horse riding for kids and grown ups, ATV renting services. In Bran you've got things to visit, Bran Castle, go for a ski ride on Zanoaga ski slope which unfortunately works only in the weekend. The Vila Bran employees are really friendly, the room service was oke, the restaurant was ok too and very affordable prices for the menu. During the weekend nights they have concerts and kids' activities with cartoons heros and face painting. For my first time it was ok, the mattress of the bed wasn't too comfortable for me and the for a couple, the room had two double beds joined, so we slept separated even if the beds were put together so the sleep quality had to suffer a little bit. The room service always on time with changing the sheets and taking the garbage away. The room we slept it had no fridge (although we didn't need one, we let the water on the balcony outside) but during the warm holidays it can be difficult to store the water somewhere cold. The place was clean, the parking area was big enough and cleaned of snow daily. For those with the family or couples it's a must.

Room Tip: Vila 10 has nice big rooms, the beds are a problem being too small. The indoor pool is for the kids...

We spent a five days vacation for New Years Eve and we enjoyed it very much. The complex has several villas ( nr 11 is great as it is on the top of the hill and close to the restaurant), pools, spa, several different activities for kids, cinema etc. The staff are very friendly and helpfull. Food was good as well. We would recommend it to our friends.

Here u will find traditional romanian restaurant, lot of indoor/outdoor activities, concerts, karaoke nights, parties for children and many other activities. Everything is amazing except the stairs...if u go to pool u have to take the stairs, for restaurant stairs, to go to ur room more stairs, to leave the complex again stairs....lot lot lot lot of stairs, but keeps u in shape after a meal at the restaurant :)

If you plan to visit Bran and the Brand Castle (Dracula Castle), Vila Bran is teh perfect accomodation for you. It's close to the castle (you can take a short walk) and it has a lot of activities,
Perfect place to go with children or with your friends.

Also, if you want to taste some traditional food, go to Vila Bran. They have a lot of tasty things :)

Arrived later in the evening, we tried to eat first. Tough. Not so fresh meat and warm beer. Then, we tried to check in. First surprise: money in advance. In order to keep the unsatisfied client in. Meaning us. Booking 5 rooms. Our, of course had a bad case of mold, just good for my asthma. They gave us another room in another far away building, away from our kids :(. Awfull experience I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Except the receptionist, one ms. Diana Ghita. Sincerely yours, Alexandru-Victor Todica, Attorney at Law, Bucharest Bar Association, Romania
