As we have visited off season, it was very calm and quiet. However, there still are quite a few people visiting, so the place doesn't feel deserted.
It is mainly a SPA place - there are lots of procedures to choose from, but make sure you know this stuff before you book - some of them are really... not worth the price, let's put it nicely.
The location is superb, if it's Majori or Dzintari you are interested in. You walk out of the door straight to the main street Majori and the beach is hardly minutes away. Although, that's not much help if you visit in winter - the whole town in "sleeping" as most places open late spring and operate though the summer only.
Rooms are nice and modern, although the air-conditioning is unbearably loud. So at night you literally have to decide whether to stay warm (that's in winter; or cool - in summer) or to sleep...
The walk-in shower looked modern and contemporary, but the towels were a bit dirty, which was a big turn-off, I'm afraid...
Beware of a minibar in the room - prices are.. well, minibar usual ones, so better stock up before you come here, if you tend to get peckish at night. And it's a pity there are no tea/coffee making facilities - is it like not custom anywhere outside the UK?..
The staff is very attentive and accurate - that is very common in Latvia, though. Just be aware that not everyone speaks English so you might need to wait for the suitable person to serve you.
Now, there is a restaurant and a bar within the hotel. Restaurant is open till late and serves food till 10pm - which is impressive. As to the bar, I would not suggest going there out of the season time - you might be expecting to come to the glamorous place with the sea (as the name suggests) view and sip your drink in a loud and noisy environment, looking at young people like you having fun and socialising... but the reality (once again, that's in winter) is that you might be the only customer in there... So, if you're lucky enough to have come before the sunset - you might enjoy the picturesque view while having your drink. Otherwise, you'll desperately gulp your Pina Colada all alone and be gone in 5 minutes... (there's free WiFi to brighten up your mood, though).
Now, to the breakfast. Such a great variety!.. Literally, anyone would be able to choose something for themselves!.. Sure, coffee could use an improvement (tastes like the cheapest filter coffee they could find), but the food is really nice!.. Choose a table by the window and sip your coffee while watching pedestrians on Jomas street - life is good ;)
