A nice hotel, quiet rooms, magnificent SPA with big pool, lots of jacuzzis. But, the big 😔 goes to the restaurant. The food is good but the service is terrible. You wait a lot for someone to take an order, and they often forget You even exists at the table.

Nice hotel, helpful staff and beautiful spa However in my opinion they would take advantage To rise the level of gastronomy Once you get bored of the spa there is as well a multitude of activities and visits you can practice in the nature like off road cars, mountain biking, tree climbing, etc

The staff is unprepared and the general service not good. The check came one hour after we asked for it and when the waitress came to the table she excused herself because she didn't know how to use the POS. The food at the restaurant is not as good as the prices would suggest, but it makes up to a...

Although it was a rainy Saturday, It was compensated by the great conditions from the SPA center of the hotel. All the conditions offered were very good, starting with the room facilities, spacious rooms, great balcony, very good meals, and of course SPA. very nice place for hiking, or visiting St. Ana Lake. Still, beware of bears - a lot...

Great surroundings: unspoiled forest, fresh air, deep silence ( in the night one can hear the birds and the wild animals in the forest), far from mainly roads and mass-tourism. Ask for a superior room, which has extra-space and balcony. A wine sip on the balcony overlooking the forest around makes all the money. The SPA area seems to be...

Room was quit small, nothing spectacular, with standard options. The road to the hotel is in very bad shape, you must pay attention to avoid different obstacles on the way. Very good food and great surroundings. You can go on trips to St Ana Lake and to Tinovul Mohos. The mini-adventure park was really fun. At night you are not...

I was there during a team-building. From the outside the hotel doesn't look too promising. However, things change when you step in. It is nicely decorated; the staff is really helpful; rooms are clean and modern. The food was good. They also have a spa which looks great. Activities: short walks, bear watching, aventura park, etc.

Nice place, although it's hard to reach...portions of bad road (but still not for long distances)...cozy hotel, big and clean rooms, nice view over the mountains. Great (one of the greatest) Spa Center with lots of pools, saunas and water massage areas...this is the highlight of the place, in fact. But take care when you are going to the restaurant...we...
