There is no question that Vila Park is in a stunning location - Lake Bohinj is but a minute's walk away, and you can hike up into the surrounding mountains from the front door. Equally, the hotel is immaculately clean and the food is fresh, varied and tasty. We stayed for two nights, and slept uninterruptedly for both, waking to enjoy the beautiful view from our private balcony.
However, we did find that the hospitality might not be to everyone's tastes. The owner tries to be friendly, but it's all just a bit too much and too forced. Equally, as a hotel that does not allow children, the dining arrangements are rather odd - everyone has to eat at the same time and tables are grouped in fours, so most tables were two couples forced to interact with one another. Fortunately, the people seated next to us were delightful, but we didn't find being asked to dine with strangers to be the romantic experience we'd hoped for, and dined out the following evening, foregoing our paid-for half-board.
Most people will fall in love with the location of Vila Park, and we did have a good stay (and wonderful time in the incredibly natural surroundings) and these are relatively trivial complaints - but if you travel to be independent, value your personal space, and don't wish for your day to be organised by someone else as you eat breakfast, we'd probably suggest elsewhere.
