Definitely treat yourself to a night here. One night at the hotel will cost you the same as a night in a Reykjavik hotel inc breakfast plus passes x 2 for lagoon so it makes sense, and your experience will be so much better as you can swim twice in the private lagoon, the day you arrive and before check...

This is a great place to relax, had it bought as a birthday present so can't really tell you how much it cost. We called in here while on our transfer from the airport which is a great way to start your holiday. The bus calls every hour to pick you up. Don't worry about your case as there is...

The private lagoon was amazing, so much better than the public lagoon, we went to the public blue lagoon and stayed for 5 mins and left as the private one in the hotel was 10 times better, but there aren't any good restaurant around, there is a restaurant called lava restaurant but the food was poorly so I don't recommend...

Me and my husband stayed here in February for one night, we arrived early a few hours early and were both pleased the clinic had a room available so we could check in earlier, the reception staff were very polite and helpful. The service we received was very good. Although we had both seen pictures online of the room we...

The blue lagoon hotel is small, 35 rooms i think, and remote place. We had really good service, and the rooms were good quality. Hotel guest have access to the main blue lagoon for free, which is really good, and the hotel has a small private lagoon pool of its own. Only bad thing is that the hotel is a...

I am so very glad we stayed in this fabulous hotel - most comfortable beds, amazing views across the lunar landscape! The hotel lagoon is perfect- spent ages the first afternoon just floating around and then walked across the path to the main lagoon. What a shock - absolutely hordes of people queuing to get in the overcrowded pool!!!! Quickly...

We stayed here one night at the beginning of our week in Iceland. It is a low slung, Scandinavian style building nestled into the lava field - simply beautiful! On clear nights, you can see millions of stars, and if lucky, the northern lights. Our room was clean, comfy, and a bit warm as there was no thermostat control that...

The Blue Lagoon is one of contemporary Iceland's most famous destinations.  A gigantic lagoon of thermal silca rich blue water nestled in a craggy basin of lava chunks is the primary draw, and it is indeed a cool place to visit and hang out.  The destination also includes the expected steam and sauna rooms, massages and other treatments you'd expect...

Had a fantastic time here. The hotel is very modern and warm and so close to the blue lagoon. Our bed was huge and comfortable with a very modern shaker. Breakfast was yummy but it lacked a restaurant for dinner, luckily we had a car so were fine. The hotel could do with some swimsuit dryers. Other than that it...
