We loved most of our stay - beautiful setting right at the beach, nice spa facilities. Food is lovely and especially the breakfast and lunch buffets were very good. Set menu was also very nice and I love being able to choose from so many options - vegetarian too - when picking the three courses. Unfortunaly, our evening both Friday and Saturday was ruined by the extremly loud live music played at the restaurant and bar, making it impossible to have a conversation with the four friends, I was traveling with. No where to sit without having our ears blasted out by loudspeakers turned to the max, pointing in all directions. The 10-15 drunk people dancing around the piano seemed to have a good time though, but we ended up leaving the restaurant and bar area at 11pm as we simply couldn't communicate with each other at the table without having to shout. Very strange entertainment choice for a spa hotel where you go to relax with your spouse or friends. Someone playing a live piano is lovely - but it should have been relaxing, soft music and a smooth vocal. Not some guy punching the piano keys and shouting pop tunes at the top of his lungs.

Overall great experience. Would only be better with chromecast in the room and if the room we were given was in the same building as all the main facilities. The bath house was fantastic and the food at the restaurant was great!

Hotel Skansen at Bostad offers great value for money and a relaxing spa experience. Absolutely loved it, particularly the saunas and restaurant sand. The location of the hotel was wonderful and scenic, adjacent to the sea.

Excellent location - excellent golf courses in the area - ideal for a relaxing get away or re-charging your batteries. Also perfect for walking along the beach or taking bike rides. The Spa facility is excellent especially Kallbadhuset

I will NEVER stay here again- In an age when skin cancer is a major concern I was forced to remove my T shirt to use the root top facilities. I could have worn a robe and melted in the heat but not a T shirt. Yes there are sun creams and I use them for arms etc. but I don not what a tan or to risk skin cancer. I just want to relax. This is simply NOtT acceptable, If you’re not prepared to expose you skin to the sun you’re not welcome here!!
