We spent five wonderful nights at the Dorfhotel, and couldn't have been more satisfied. The hotel is designed for families. Here are some highlights:

Pros:
* Friendly Staff: everyone, without exception, was kind and friendly to us and our 3 year-old daughter. They welcomed her, talked with her, and made her feel special, which is rare in Northern Germany. The kid's bed was set up, with linens, when we arrived.

*Kid's Program: There is a drop-off Kid's Center at the hotel. Every day, they offer interesting and fun activities for children, free of charge (must pay for lunch). There also is a play area designed like a light house just for children above the breakfast restaurant...with a hotel staff member for supervision...so the kids can eat and play while the adults linger over coffee. Also, the hotel mascot greeted all the children at breakfast. There are two playgrounds on site, a neighboring one at the campground next door, and little play areas between the buildings.

* Food: Good food, and lots of it. There are two restaurants on site. One is a buffet--decent quality, but a LOT of variety (Omlettes! Brotchens! Fresh fruit!). Perfect for families. The other is elegant and a la carte; we had a delicious dinner with excellent salmon. Lovely service in both restaurants. There is also room service with good pizza.

Spa: Two swimming pools (1 large multi-use pool with waterfall, one shallow kid's pool). The swim area has a wall of windows that face the Watte. There is a complete sauna area. I had an excellent classic massage. Our daughter still talks about how fun the pools were.

Location: The hotel is in a quiet part of Sylt, adjacent to the Watte and across the street from the North Sea dunes. Easy to get anywhere, especially if you have a car or bike. Bus stop is close.

Rooms: Have a wood-burning stove, and a balcony or terrace. They are equipped with all the basics--towels, toiletries, coffee maker, water cooker, dishwasher. Very quiet. We loved having a fire in the wood-burning stove, and looking out the window at the meadow and seeing rabbits hop by.

Cons:
The rooms are small, but cozy. Our bed wasn't very comfortable, but manageable. Bring your own pillow.

Room Tip: Look on-line for discounts, or call the front desk to see what discount they can offer.
