A bit of a paradox, this hotel. The reception is friendly, people at the front desk are helpful and flexible (e.g. we booked a family appartement, having understood this would have a separate room for our kids of 4 & 7- this was not the case so we could easily move to two separate rooms at no extra cost). The rooms were clean, spacious, well-kept. Wi-fi in the hotel came in handy. The food was never disappointing: tasty local cuisine combined with international dishes 'en buffet' (but all a bit greasy, rather winter-time dishes and you never knew exactly what you ate, unless you read Hungarian of course). The waiters came whirling through the dining room and grasped plates as if it were a contest, not really relaxing, especially if they're on the edge of being friendly. On every door, wall... you get nicely printed lists of what you cannot do, should not do and must not do (in fact, this is something you encounter not only in the hotel, but it is not very welcoming). The hotel walls are immediately surrounded by public space, so there's no small garden, only a couple of chairs set as a terrass, which gives a bit an enclosed feel. The crafty indoor pool is certainly all right (if you obey all orders...), but in summer you long for an outdoor swim, which is not possible in Men Dan (you can go to a public thermal park just outside the hotel, but that's a mass-event). Zalakaros itself is not really a Nr 1 touristic destination, but you're not that far away from the Kiss-Balaton and the Balaton lake itself, with plenty of things to do and see.
