Very soothing water, the geothermal temperature was perfect. We could've stayed in all day. The coupons are a bit of a scam, Britt really usable for face value. All in all a really nice experience, we plan on flying through Iceland to Europe so we can lay over to go to the blue lagoon

If you plan to visit the Blue Lagoon I highly recommend staying here because the private blue lagoon at the hotel is so much better. The Blue Lagoon felt more like spring break - it was so busy with all the bus loads of people every few minutes and most of the people were drinking and loud; just not my...

My friend and I decided to splurge on our first night in Iceland, so we booked a room at the Blue Lagoon Clinic. Had our flight been on time, we would have had the day at the spa and then the night at the hotel. We arrived with enough time to get settled in the room, and walk around the...

I went on a sunny spring afternoon just to swim and it was one of the best things I did in Iceland. You can hire swimming costume and towel or take your own. The water is nice and hot and a surreal powder blue colour. There are free steam rooms, showers, mud packs and relaxing areas, also a floating bar...

We stayed here by happy accident when the hotel we'd originally planned on staying at was fully booked, and we were not disappointed. The clinic is just up from the main Blue Lagoon complex, but is entirely private. Acting as a clinic and health spa during the day, for the treatment of various ailments, you can also book rooms for...

if you would like to visit the blue lagoon for a day staying at the clinic is a must. For two adults entrance into the pools is complementary, I was given passes for two on both my day of arrival and departure which saves a lot of money at the actual blue lagoon. They have private pools open for the...

Would not recommend this "hotel". The staff were very rude and unhelpful. If we needed something basic like information about lagoon or even directions to our room when we checked in, it felt like we were intruding on the ongoinh conversations between the staff members. Given room card and not shown to room. No info on opening times of private...

Very nicer facility not far from the capital city. It's signed from the main roads if you're good at working puzzles. Best to make arrangements early and have your admission ready. Opt for something above base level for a treat, or go bare-bones and bring your own towel. The waters are steamy hot and amazing - as I wrote this...

Nice afternoon at the blue lagoon. The lagoon was very nice and had a bar so you don't need to leave to get a new drink! Restaurant was lovely with views looking over the lagoon. Food was nice and had a good selection of wines.
