This is a really great hotel - some hotels are 5 star but don't live up to the billing. This hotel really meets the grade. Staff are wonderfully helpful (and almost universally English speaking) and the facilities are great. Make good use of the wonderful spa facilities while you're there. Food's great, views are great - basically it's all great. The village of Strbske Pleso is a bit of an Iron Curtain era monstrosity of civic planning, and it doesn't help that the skyline of imposing mountains is rather dominated by two abandoned ski jumps, but the lake (Pleso) itself is lovely, as are the High Tatra mountains that are right there. All the hikes are really well marked so give them a go.
Be aware that this is a 5 star hotel so a beer or G&T at the bar will be the same price as in a bar in London. If you're short on spending money, there are bars in the village and you can get a pint of local beer for 1 Euro!

this hotel is part of the aqua center compound.
the good: Both dinner and breakfast (all buffet) are included in the rate, which is rare.
access to the water park is included.
ok selection of the buffet
the facilities looks new.
the bad: no air-conditioning. the hotel is above the aqua center, the heat keeps the hallway hot. some people keep their window half open but when there is no wind it doesn't help much. i wake up with the temperature of 28.5 in the room comparing to 25 the night before, so it could get very uncomfortable.
the curtains are not blocking enough lights, the room gets very bright in the morning.

The hotel is in a very nice location, the building itself has a beautiful design and it could be the best hotel in this area however inside the buliding it requires a big refurbishment. Rooms itself are refreshed however overall outlook of the furniture and amenities is quite dissapointing. Very nice and helpfull staff, breakfast ok, a la carte menu - a little bit dissapointing as well. Nice evening entertainment at hotel bar!
