While not located immediately adjacent to the lagoon itself, don't let that discourage you from staying here. The hotel has its own private lagoon onsite for guests in addition to the main lagoon. A great way to start or end the day as it is rarely crowded. The double room my sister and I stayed in was the most spacious...

We decided to stay here before our morning flight. Glad we did that rather than just going to the Blue Lagoon. Spent some time at the Blue Lagoon and then went to dinner. We would have been disappointed to have done just the Lagoon. Came back and went into the private lagoon. Very nice. Breakfast was nice before we left....

Understand that the Blue Lagoon Clinic is a hotel, completely separate from the Blue Lagoon facility itself. The Premium Experience is worth it, but you need to book the "Clinic" rooms separately. The massages and the Lava Restaurant are part of the Blue Lagoon itself, not part of the Clinic hotel. I came out of the Lagoon and the Salt...

the experience in blue lagoon clinic was in the beginning good, but as we have to walk to the main lagoon for dinner (no cafe or restaurant in the clinic), we would need to take 600m long walk. It was darkm, windy and rainning, and the pass was not lighted well. There were few intersetion without light so I was...

Iceland is a surreal place and what could be more close to this landscape by staying in a hotel amid black lava field and steps away from the blue lagoon? We had a lot of anticipation for this place because last time we were in Iceland (before the expansion of the hotel), it was fully booked. It was an experience...

This is the perfect place to start and end any stay in Iceland. The rooms come with admission to the Blue Lagoon which is a great start to a visit. The hotel also has a private lagoon attached which is the perfect end when you don't feel like doing the crowds and you don't want to have to leave the...

Everyone said, 'you have to go!' From the point we booked it - I didn't! I just thought it would be hordes and hordes of humanity en masse! On the bus to the venue, I was thinking this isn't for me! The whole rigmarole of getting signed in, wrist bracelets/towels/robes/undressing/showering and on and on it went! Until I gingerly tottered...

One must love the Blue lagoon to stay here. There is nothing attractive with the hotel, it is just located at the Blue Lagoon. The staff is cold, not very helpful. There is absolutely no amenities in the room. One could expect having the Blue Lagoon toiletries in the bathroom but there is only a shower gel (no shampoo, no...

Like most of the hotels in Iceland, the philosophy is no frills and no fuss. The room is small but comfortable. I love the lounge chair with an ottoman. We have a room facing the lava moss which is accessible through the balcony (probably all rooms have more or less the same view). The bathroom and amenities are very basic....

We stayed one night here at the end of our trip. The Blue Lagoon is lovely and it was so nice to have the hotel's private lagoon because the main lagoon is very crowded. Breakfast was good and the hotel facilities were lovely. The room itself was comfortable and clean, but it was a bit "faded" It's big with lots...
