I call those vacation EXCELLENT. It took me a while to figure it why. It was my 4th vacation with kids in an aqua in a row (Prague, Budapest, Bulgaria) and the best one. It is hard to compare Golden Prague or Majestic Budapest to Poprad but indeed in such competition Poprad wins. I think it is combination of four factors.
People - for city, hotel employees and hotel management it is main income source so apart of professionalism one can experience also friendliness and devotion.
Size - the area is huge and full of attractions (i.e. volleyball). On 15th of August (Polish long holiday) there was ca.1500 people in the pool - it was crowded then but usually it was ca 1000 at noon and almost empty in the morning. You could enjoy all without queues. And still at
nights it is extremely quite both from inside and outside.
Food - it was really something. Usually food in such resorts repeats in 2-4 days cycle. In here it was really surprising every day.
Outside attractions - High Tatras with its lakes (Strbske Pleso), hiking and cable-ways (Tatranska Lomnica) is a big attraction for 4-15y. kids even Karluv Bridge cannot win this competition.
View from 5th floor is breath taking.
I was also slightly surprised with guests structure - 50-60% Poles\Slovaks, 15% Russians, 15% Brits, 10% others.
As i remember from high school British monarch visits each country only ones and Queen has chosen this hotel for staying in Slovakia.
This is how I explain high stake of English visitors.
Again as I remember from high school High Tatras are pocket size Himalayas so kids will enjoy mountain trips.
I think that for family with kids or 20/30y visitors it is a great spot for 7-14d staying.
The only contras are minor: the complex is a maze, it took me a while to learn all curves. No wifi in rooms only lan - after all
I'm not sure whether it is minus during holidays.
