We really enjoyed our stay at the clinic and only wished we could have stayed longer though it was quite a luxury expense! The clinic is in a beautiful setting and the wall facing our room's courtyard was all glass so you could see the moss covered rocks that surround the hotel. The room we had, which was near the...

I booked this hotel because I hoped it would be different to anywhere I've ever stayed and it was. Secondly, we were travelling with our 18 month old son and we wanted to be able to make the most of the thermal pools. I thought this would be difficult if we had only booked tickets to the blue lagoon because...

Yes this place was expensive, but it was 100% worth it. From the moment you checked in, I felt like I was at an exclusive place. You have private access to the hotels own blue lagoon, which is open late into the night. Although you get free tickets to the main blue lagoon, I wanted no part joining in with...

Definitely treat yourself to a night here. One night at the hotel will cost you the same as a night in a Reykjavik hotel inc breakfast plus passes x 2 for lagoon so it makes sense, and your experience will be so much better as you can swim twice in the private lagoon, the day you arrive and before check...

This is a great place to relax, had it bought as a birthday present so can't really tell you how much it cost. We called in here while on our transfer from the airport which is a great way to start your holiday. The bus calls every hour to pick you up. Don't worry about your case as there is...

The private lagoon was amazing, so much better than the public lagoon, we went to the public blue lagoon and stayed for 5 mins and left as the private one in the hotel was 10 times better, but there aren't any good restaurant around, there is a restaurant called lava restaurant but the food was poorly so I don't recommend...

Me and my husband stayed here in February for one night, we arrived early a few hours early and were both pleased the clinic had a room available so we could check in earlier, the reception staff were very polite and helpful. The service we received was very good. Although we had both seen pictures online of the room we...

The blue lagoon hotel is small, 35 rooms i think, and remote place. We had really good service, and the rooms were good quality. Hotel guest have access to the main blue lagoon for free, which is really good, and the hotel has a small private lagoon pool of its own. Only bad thing is that the hotel is a...

I am so very glad we stayed in this fabulous hotel - most comfortable beds, amazing views across the lunar landscape! The hotel lagoon is perfect- spent ages the first afternoon just floating around and then walked across the path to the main lagoon. What a shock - absolutely hordes of people queuing to get in the overcrowded pool!!!! Quickly...
