Overall our stay was ok but not worth the cost. It was a short adult time getaway for my husband and I. We booked this particular hotel because of the indoor pool, jacuzzi, and saunas. It is currently cold in Germany so an outdoor pool would not be feasible. In order to use this area you must make reservations in advanced for a 90 minute timeframe. We did this the day before arrival, this truly hyped up our expectations. We arrived to our reserved time and was escorted to the area by the check in staff. Once inside the area we were a little disappointed when we saw a sign on the door of the wet sauna that it was out of order. Ok we figured It was not a big deal. We proceed to the jacuzzi to find that there was no water in it. More disappointment. Ok we figured we would enjoy the pool. My toes go in and WOW the water was freezing. I figured I would try to see if it would warm up. After 2 minutes of my toes in the water they became numb. At this point we were fully disappointed in the pool area, which was supposed to be half of our experience. Upon letting the front desk know that the pool was cold we were told, "it is supposed to be warm." Nothing further beyond that. If we would have known this ahead of time we would have booked for different days. This truly reminded us to not have high expectations, as you only leave yourself room for disappointed.

Dear jnairn80, Thank you for taking a moment to review your recent experience at our property. We are grateful for such detailed feedback and try to take your mentioned points and improve them. We are also bound by official measures in the current situation, which is why the whirlpool and steam sauna are closed. In order for us to be able to open the SPA area, we are allocating time slots, as you described, so that you can safely enjoy the Villa SPA to the fullest. Our pool has a standard temperature of 26 degrees Celsius. It is possible that this may seem a bit cool at first, as the entire Villa SPA area is very warm and pleasantly tempered. I am very sorry that the pool temperature has once again contributed to your disappointment. I was very pleased with your evaluation of the service, cleanliness and rooms. We are very pleased that you also took positive impressions from your last stay with us. I am looking forward to hearing about your expectations for your next stay in a personal exchange; we would also be happy to advise you again for a treatment in the SPA area. The entire team at Villa Kennedy looks forward to exceeding your expectations. Please do not hesitate to contact me directly with any questions or your next booking. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely yours, Kevin de Marche Guest Services Manager
