6/10 Good

Service and staff were very good to us and they went the extra step but the overall ambience could do with providing value for money spent. The decor inside the glass igloos was below average in terms of design etc

4/10 Fair

Pros: The property was beautiful, the Kelo Igloo cabin was clean, housekeeping staff was incredibly kind. Cons: the temperature is controlled for the igloo and it is miserably hot. I couldn’t sleep because I was sweaty. I didn’t know how hot it would be until we got there. I run hot due to a medical issue and I was completely miserable not being able to control the temperature. They should tell you this on their website. The WiFi was down for all but one day. I asked 4 times for it to be fixed and it didn’t happen until our last night. Without WiFi, the aurora alarm doesn’t work so we missed 2 alarms on the only night the lights were visible. Front desk staff was all incredibly rude other than one kind woman (sorry, I don’t know her name). One lady with curly hair was helping me and then walked away mid conversation and took someone else’s luggage into the storage room and never returned to help me. Lately, the two twin beds that are pushed together in the igloo portion of the room are on wheels and the beds slide across the floor when the wheels were locked. We would wake up 6 inches away from where we fell asleep due to the beds moving as we tossed and turned at night. Disappointed that we spent so much time and money planning this trip and the Kelo was an awful experience.

Stayed at the east wing igloo and pretty hard to locate in the dark. Overall, room and bathroom was pretty small but it’s fine for solo or couple traveler/s, nice view from the glass of the room but didn’t see any northern light on that night. Bed was small but pretty comfortable and breakfast selections were absolutely great, dinner was ok.

Worst customer service
Worst customer service i ever experience. Employee from snow mobile insult me, after i spend $600 in snowmobile. Rent a tour for 2 hours and they only give me 1 hour , He don't have manners they dont care about nothing. Super expensive and they make you eat there because there is no more choice. Food was not good. Order 2 time chimney service and never arrived. It was a disaster.

8/10 Very Good

We stayed five nights at Kakslauttanen and had an amazing time doing activities like snow mobiling, reindeer sleigh ride and husky ride. The activities were great & made the stay a great adventure. We stayed at East Village which is the original part of the resort. It's smaller and less packed as the West Village, but some parts are starting to get a little dated (e.g. bathrooms). The large log cabin was nice, but had a hard bed and we only got properly hot water in the shower early in the morning. Later in the day water was always cold. We also stayed in one of the glass igloos which was amazing with the view of the sky, but it was way too warm inside. It was so warm it was terrible to sleep in there as we found no way to adjust the temperature. Other than the paid activities there's not much to do at the resort, but we had one activity per day and time went fast. Breakfast was served in the resort's restaurant and it was pretty good. Dinner was at the same spot with a set menu and a choice of couple different entrees. We had some nice salmon soup, really good chicken, white fish dish that was just okay and a steak which was chewy and not good. Staff was nice, but most of them seemed like they were new there. They were unorganized and unsure of how to get things done. Some of them didn't speak very good English either which created issues for example when they communicated with the local taxis. The resort itself was overpriced, but the activities were worth every penny.
