For a getaway without our children we booked a large (royal) suite. The room is large, has a private sauna and jacuzzi, large rainshower and a huge bed. The interior is "Kitschy" gold coloured fake leather pillows on the bed etcetera. The smell inside the room was not to pleasant on arrival. Probably this is related to the jacuzzi plumbing. Although the room was not dirty it wasn't certainly spic and span. Cleanliness could certainly be significantly better.
The swimmingpool is large. On both occasions that we visted the pool it was also in use by schoolclasses that had swimming lessons. No real problem but not very quiet at these moments.
Staff is friendly but do not expect super service.
Regarding the amount of excellent restaurants at a short drive of the hotel I would advise not to dine in the hotel.
Breakfast is good, with a reasonable choice of ingredients.
There is ample parking place, the location in relation to cities like Alkmaar, Haarlem, Amsterdam and Schiphol airport is good.
Price quality ratio is reasonably good.
