Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful lake but watch where you stay, we stared at the DALMA Panzio the worst nightmare you can’t imagine. The manger rude, not at all what we booked, we arrived late due to traffic, dinner zero as their kitchen closed at 7. Room let’s see had to ask for towels so we could shower, closet NO had to put everything on the floor, chair I wish, the worst place ever.

Amazing. The water is such a green colour this time of year. Quiet in all the restaurants (those that are open!) as the tourists and locals haven’t arrived yet

Balaton is the largest lake in Eastern Europe. It is surrounded by dozens of small villages and towns (and a few larger ones), attractions and activites for all ages and tastes.
We stayed in Tihany, off season. Gorgeous lake view from the room. Walk along the lake in different towns, each place is a bit different, but all have ducks and swans, things to do for kids, clean swimming areas (no sandy beaches), boat rides, historical cites and museums, hikes, whathaveyou nearby.
An absolutely wonderful place to go. The hardest part is deciding where to stay.

Absolutely beautiful part of Hungary. The lake is crystal clear, very shallow for quite a long way. There are water sports on the like, inflatables and mini slides for children. There are public toilets around the like and places to get snacks.

Very clean and safe environment.
Beautiful views ( especially if you visit the vulcano hills on the north shore)
good food and wines,
Do a boat ride on the Lake where a ride on the hills is included ( by electric car) and walking down you have many restaurants with local food and stunning views.

Stopped here for lunch on a cross country trip and stayed a good while. It was vast and, under clear blue skies, was very beautiful to sit with.

Lake Balaton - the "Hungarian" Sea - it is always a great to see - was no difference in September when I've been to Siofok and took some time to stroll along the shore.
Due to the high winds there were massive waves breaking against the shore , enhancing the spectacular views that the lake itself is typically offering - regardless of the season.
It was a nice relaxing walk along a piece of shore where at points a flock of wild ducks was on the shore and could make some pics.
Overall if you are in the area I would say you must stop somewhere on the shore and enjoy the views of you can even plan a summer holiday at the Balaton - for sure it is worth it.

You need to visit to find out the beauty of this place, we went with family and stay very long but long enough to see it’s beauty.

The still calm water on Europe’s biggest lake, amazing, peaceful and tranquil.

It was differently worth a visit :)

Lake Balaton is a must to visit every year regardless of your nationality.
It is getting more and more popular. The view of the lake is really nice.
