This is a magical experience with little kids! The hotel is very nice and being right in the village was perfect for us. We were in a brand new building and it was wonderful. Loved having a sauna in the room to use after the kids were asleep! The hotel also has little sleds you can pull your kids on back and forth from your room to breakfast or other activities, and at night when most people have gone home you can sled on the hills or snow piles! Peaceful, beautiful and fun! You’re also right there to see Santa in his office (choose the main one on the Arctic Circle), take a reindeer ride, play on the playground, etc. Santa’s Park is 2km away down a side road. It was 15 euros in a taxi each direction, so we walked it and pulled them on the sleds. If there was no snow it all might have been a much different experience. There is also a bus that will take you there but not a shuttle bus. I do wish they had a shuttle bus direct to Santa’s Park running every hour for guests of the village and maybe one to the train station (that was 25 euros in a taxi both ways). Transportation be my only “complaint”. Overall a great experience!

Was very excited to be in the Santa Claus village! The atmosphere was very nice with Christmas lightings! The village is very big and need to walk from lobby to the cottage with the luggage on the snow, which was a bit clumsy. But the cottage itself was nice and spacious. Mini kitchen and sauna was inside the cottage as well. There's a balcony with Christmas tree and lightings in front of each cottage, very good place for taking photos. Met the Santa Claus just near the cottage and took nice pictures. Really miss the Christmas atmosphere there!

The villa was spacious and the spa inside the villa was really good especially when you wanted to relax after roaming around the cold weather. Hotel reception staff are not very friendly and very attentive which is quite sad since the “Christmas” spirit of happiness and joy should be consistent all though out. there’s one exception though since Marco (who is an all around staff - he drives people to airport, help with tours etc) is really a very friendly guy who provides consistent service everytime he helps us during our 5days stay in the hotel
