“If you can't speak Polish or German then give it a miss”
Reviewed August 12, 2010

Room was spacious, plenty of storage, drawers etc. One bed was OK but not the other. Nice Bathroom. Air Con was inadequate. One young porter spoke good English, one receptionist some English so if you don't understand Polish or German your stay could be challenging. Breakfast was a large room, bit chaotic, plenty of choice but a bit too open for the odd fly or three. Dinner in the main dining room [also the breakfast room] finished at 19.30. We were told 8.30 but that was a language mix up - In Poland it is half to the hour and not half past. If you do go make sure there isn't a beach festival / party taking place unless you enjoy those. Loud "Music" as in Thump Thump Thump until 3.00 AM for 4 consecutive nights - our complete stay. Well 3 as a severe thunderstorm disrupted proceedings on one night. Resort and hotel location were not quite what we expected. Not the idyllic spa resort that the publicity was claiming

The hotel consists of two parts, an old one and a bigger new one. We stayed in the old part, so our review is based only on our experiences there. The newer part might be in better shape.
Our room was quite spacious with an extra couch and TV with many channels (including German). However, the age shows: the beds are saggy, furniture used and the bathroom needed urgent renovation and showed some mold. Bathroom ventilation was also quite cumbersome - we had to put a chair in the door to keep it open.
Staff was friendly and fluent in German, parking was well organized with 30 PLN a day and the location could hardly be better just 100 meters of the beach (if you want to get to a quieter part of the beach, you have to walk some 100 meters, though).
There is a nice spa area with two pools and two jacuzzis, which get crowded quickly, though. The steam sauna was quite nice whereas the Finnish sauna seemed to be out of work. There are popular aqua fitness classes every morning.
The breakfast room remembered us of a college commons, the variety typical of big Polish hotels (i.e. only ersatz-juice)

Hotel Lidia is a spa hotel by the beach in Darlowo. The rooms are spacious, clean, & very nice. Plenty of room for two in the shower! During our winter visit most of the guests were older Germans that come for the spa & beauty treatments not to mention the lower prices in Poland! There are terry-cloth robes in the closet. Just put on your bathing suite, robe & head for the indoor pool & hot tub. There is a good restaraunt with a hearty breakfast to start the day. You can then go for long walks down the beach or into the harbor town of Darlowo which is a bit south of the hotel & 30-minute walk. You may want to take a cab for
3 bucks. If you like fish, you'll love eating out here! The fishing boats come in every day with their catch. I do recommend the
restaurant in town at the Hotel Eric! The Baltic Sea in Poland has small towns, no freeways, and beautiful long, white, sandy beaches. It's similar to Denmark where I used to live but a lot cheaper! Unlike Denmark though, not a lot of people speak English!

  • Liked — Nice rooms & location next to the beach
  • Disliked — The staff speaks Polish & German, could be a problem for English only speakers
  • Tips/Secrets — For a fun summer holiday the prices at the Baltic in Poland are a real value
