Reviewed 9 July 2014

Me and my fiancé spent two nights at Petäys Resort with our two-year-old son. The place was great for a family holiday with lots of activities to choose from which were included in the price of the room. We tried mini golf, frisbee gold and went rowing on the lake. Also there was a gym with new equipment which my fiancé enjoyed and a large in door hall for ball games etc. Our son loved running around in the large hall and playing floor hockey with his father.

Lunch at the beach restaurant was ok. The salmon with lime and coriander butter was great but the baked potatoes seemed like they might have been baked a while ago. We also had coffee at the main building and some cake to go with it. The Rocky Pecan cake was delicious! The breakfast buffet was up to par with other breakfast buffets in Finland.

Our room seemed like it had been renovated recently and the furnishings were modern. Unfortunately, our room had a strange smell, which bothered us to some extent. Especially the bathroom smelled like old cigarettes. Also, for some reason we were unable to get wifi connection in our room. The connection was great in the corridor, but did not work in the room. Even tough the room was spacious and looked nice, the smell and lack of wifi connection were disappointing.

Points to the staff though! They were welcoming, friendly and helpful :)

Found this place through a search engine while looking where to stay my last night in Finnland before driving to the car ferry back home. Made a reservation because of location and very good price offer. Because of the low price I should not make any complains actually but if I would have had to pay the list price I d be really disappointed.

Very friendly welcome at the reception but a kind of unexspected surprise came when I entered the room. It s really the smallest I ve been in for years, maybe 8-10 square meter all in all. No phone, no fridge, small bed, bathroom includes all You need but it s about the size of a small motorhome bathroom. When I asked for a second pillow the receptionist was surprised I even asked and was not able to supply. All in all hotel looked clean, maybe recently remodelled. But in the room I found chips from a previous guest on the floor.

Well, the excellent view from the room over the pieceful lake made up for some of the trouble.

Car can be stopped for unloading and loading near the entrance but then has to be moved out of sight to a nearby parking lot. No extra charge for parking.

Fast wifi connection in the room. Flat screen TV works well but limited to a few local channels only. Breakfast as a buffet was good even though I missed lacto free products that are usually provided in Hotels all over Finnland.

There s water all around the resort and You can swim in the lake. But to me the water did not look very clean as it was covered widely by a thin layer of what I think was some kind of seaweed ( might have been only on that day as it started to warm up in Finnland)
So for a one night short stay it was ok for the special price of 49€ but in the more than 25 years I travel to Finnland I have seen nicer places for a longer vacation.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the opposite side of the little lake coffeeshop as they have music there until...
