Every employer from the receptionist over the cleaning staff to the "pirates" performing were so dedicated that it could change the mood of even the most sceptical person. You could really feel that they love what they are... More

A place of pure Magic! It is like being taking into another world. Kids can run around by themselves, and there is no shortage of things to do.

A impressive hotel that will entertain both the kids and the adults. It is relatively expensive to stay here, but you do not only pay for a place to sleep and eat. It is a lot of entertainment hete also (especially for 4-8 year olds).

I am an adult, but still found this place really well done. The setting is like out of a movie. Walk around in the evening and explore the little fun nooks and crannies, or have a joust at Kaptein Sabetanns playground. There is an ok restaurant with many options for dinner and snacks.
