    Family traveling w two teens.

    The place was amazing. Great hospitality. As far as I can tell all the family rooms come with their own private hot tub. It wasn’t in the hotel description so a nice surprise to an already great experience.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Property itself was ok, but service and overall fit/finish were lacking. Despite a 20-hour day in the summer, some rooms did not have curtains. The place was totally deserted, but no upgrades were offered. Hot tubs were exclusively automatic, meaning you couldn’t use them at will. This place has potential but falls flat

    We had a fabulous time, and the hotel was kind enough to provide us with private room service from their excellent restaurant because we were so tired from the trip from Florida. Highly recommended!

    This property was fantastic! Perfect choice for a private getaway. The service was beyond anything we’ve experienced. We were granted early check in at 8:30 AM, having come from an overnight flight. Extra shout out to Maria, the property manager for being extra accommodating. We were there to get married and upon finding out this information from our planner, we were offered a complimentary upgrade for a 2 night stay at over $500 face value! The room was spotless, everything was high end. Breakfast was the best we’ve experienced during our trip (and one of the best in Iceland according to our planner who has lived in Iceland for nearly a decade). Will definitely look to return on our next trip to iceland. Truly a luxury experience all around.
