We only stayed at Salt Rock Hotel because the place we are usually going to in Salt Rock was fully booked. But we did not regret the stay as we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. The Hotel is not new and has somehow an old fashioned atmosphere. The lady receptionists were very friendly and helpful which contributed to the feeling that we were welcome. The setting is superbe since the hotel is just at the beach with direct access to it. The only two things I did not like was that down at the lawn there were no garden loungers and sun umbrellas. There is only a rustique bar which was mostly closed late afternoon and evening where you can sit in massive wooden chairs. But you cannot sunbath on the lawn with sea view because of the lack of loungers. There are enough loungers at the quite nice pool. The second thing was that in the evening you can only have dinner buffet style. If you are not very hungry they are not able to prepare a light meal like a salat or chips. They instead advise to go to the restaurants nearby (like the German Siggi's). Otherwise, fine place. Could be a little bit cheaper though.
