Similarly to last year, we stayed again in the Aranypart (Golden Beach) hotel. And we enjoyed it very much. Reading the guest book, it was also the feeling that a lot of others shared. So we did, too. Guests were mainly from Hungarian and German origin, also some Slovakian and Dutch.
The hotel is a 70-80 mins drive from Budapest. To get to the city centre you just need to walk about 15 mins. The (public) beach is right by the hotel, but there is also a closed area for guests only.
Rooms are for 2-4 persons and can be connected. Have a room with a balcony. Also, they are equipped with an Airco (payment), a small TV set and fridge. Also you can ask for a (deposit only) secure parking lot, right next to the hotel. No room service. In general, the rooms were okay, and very clean.
For kids there is a playing ground, and the water is very shallow! I do not recommend the massage service offered by the hotel (last year it was much better); and also a warning that since the hotel is close to the promenade, people who enjoyed the night a bit too much do cause quite a noise in the street when wandering home from the party-zone. Ask for a room closer to the beach to avoid the noise.
The quality and the quantity of the food in the restaurant remained very good, and I recommend to try some coctails in the lobby bar (the ones by Tamás are really excellent...)
There is free WiFi in the lobby, and a (quite old) PC.
This is a very good 3 star hotel. So we had a very nice holiday there again, and we might return next year.
