Easy to find, not far from KEF airport, and easy check in . -Front desk staff very friendly and entire lobby area meticulously clean. -Room "very" clean (priority for us), not surprising since it's a clinic. -So we took the opportunity to go to -Grindavik, a small town very close by, with a gas station, restaurants and a supermarket is...

We stayed here for a night while on our honeymoon. The staff were extremely friendly and polite. But the room cost €300 for one night. We would have expected a bit more from the room for that price. They seem to be developing the entire area to suit the demands of tourists. I wonder will it still have it's charm...

Although we were not mind blowned by the accomodations itself, the room was clean and spacious and had all the necessary ammeneties. We had a nice view on the lava fields, and a construction site, so ask for a room without that particular view if you would like something more romantic. The cost is a bit more expensive, but completely...

While not located immediately adjacent to the lagoon itself, don't let that discourage you from staying here. The hotel has its own private lagoon onsite for guests in addition to the main lagoon. A great way to start or end the day as it is rarely crowded. The double room my sister and I stayed in was the most spacious...

We decided to stay here before our morning flight. Glad we did that rather than just going to the Blue Lagoon. Spent some time at the Blue Lagoon and then went to dinner. We would have been disappointed to have done just the Lagoon. Came back and went into the private lagoon. Very nice. Breakfast was nice before we left....

Understand that the Blue Lagoon Clinic is a hotel, completely separate from the Blue Lagoon facility itself. The Premium Experience is worth it, but you need to book the "Clinic" rooms separately. The massages and the Lava Restaurant are part of the Blue Lagoon itself, not part of the Clinic hotel. I came out of the Lagoon and the Salt...

the experience in blue lagoon clinic was in the beginning good, but as we have to walk to the main lagoon for dinner (no cafe or restaurant in the clinic), we would need to take 600m long walk. It was darkm, windy and rainning, and the pass was not lighted well. There were few intersetion without light so I was...

Iceland is a surreal place and what could be more close to this landscape by staying in a hotel amid black lava field and steps away from the blue lagoon? We had a lot of anticipation for this place because last time we were in Iceland (before the expansion of the hotel), it was fully booked. It was an experience...

This is the perfect place to start and end any stay in Iceland. The rooms come with admission to the Blue Lagoon which is a great start to a visit. The hotel also has a private lagoon attached which is the perfect end when you don't feel like doing the crowds and you don't want to have to leave the...

Everyone said, 'you have to go!' From the point we booked it - I didn't! I just thought it would be hordes and hordes of humanity en masse! On the bus to the venue, I was thinking this isn't for me!
