Spring....no snow. Same Place: Elf Pension, Elf Resort & Spa, Forest Healing Resort and Spa- very confusing . Two distinct types of property- the gothic concrete and wood chalet.

So this place have an excellent service with English speakers, tho distance from the hotel to the sky world is 5 minutes by car. The hotel will supply free transportation any time go and back. After you'll finish to surf and you will be very tired, you will glad to realize that the room flor is heated!

The place is good for kids because in winter they have large natural sledge area. The whole place is safe for kids. There is a nice out door play area for kids. The pension is also furnished with fridge/microwave/tv/jacuzzi tub. The staff speaks decent English. The only glitch I faced is that, I booked a 3-bed room through orbitz.com by...

Our summer visit to Elf was an absolute delight with grandchildren aged 5 and 3. We explored the nearby attractions including Olympics construction. The six of us stayed in a 2 bedroom unit full of nice toys, including a collapsible toddler play tent the 3 year old claimed as his room. We put a folded up "yo" in the bottom...

We experienced a heavy snowfall whilst we were staying at Elf Pension, it certainly made a difference to the surrounds and definitely improved upon the overall feel to the place. No doubt, this place is perfect for a 4 year old! Our son loved the all season tube ride and feeding the small animals. The surrounding woods are beautiful to...

My husband and I went to Elf Pension with a couple of friends. We had a great time getting outside the city and experiencing some winter splendor. Everything is foreigner friendly - most things are written in English and the staff is very welcoming. We had a blast hiking through the snowy hills and watching an awesome fireworks show in...
