We traded time share points for this resort.
It is rural, lovely, not primitive, and comfy.
We drove to the resort from Prague......DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO THIS WITHOUT A GPS and, DEFINITELY, DO NOT ARRIVE AFTER DARK!!!!!
WAY too much STRESS!!!!
One must remember, the GPS satellites are not as numerous over the Eastern European countries...or so it seems...it's a true "driver" and "navigator" nightmare.
Once there.....it's lovely...it was cold and we didn't have to deal with the lack of AC, as the other commentators have noted. We had a cabin. It was warm and cozy.
The kitchen was small...stove top, small frig, small sink...small appliances were plentiful...microwave...which did have some sort of convection function...BUT..there are not booklets or directions....we discovered it after a couple of days.
But, one is perfectly able to pull together a meal...
Bathroom had two sinks, large shower, toilet, bidet, and granite...very nice.
We had a car, so the grocery stores(2 large) were easy..ALDO and TESCO. Tesco has a larger selection and better prices. Lots of fresh vegies and the breads are great!!!
There's a drive to Budapest...but it's not outrageous.
We didn't use public transit, although, it is available..nor did we use the facility transit.
We looked at the restaurant menu....and perhaps it is seasonal,..but there were just too many entrees of goose for us...so sadly, we can not comment on that either.
The reception staff were helpful. Our RCI info indicated that the reception closed at 8pm..not so...it's 24 hrs. That would have been helpful when we were driving...but, that is on RCI!!!
As with most time shares, we were told the linens would be changed mid week...not so, the house keepers arrived daily and exchanged the used towels, and provided any shampoo, lotions, etc..... we needed.
The town just below the resort has a small grocery, drug stores and a post office.
Since it was cold, we didn't use the heated pool, nor the massage services. We had planned to, just didn't get to it.
This would probably be great in the warmer months....as we ascended the "hill", our temps dropped several degrees...so I would assume in the warmer months...it would be cooler here than in Budapest.
