Great place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Otto Katona

One of the most beautiful places! We keep coming back! Insider Tipp: Enjoying a meal at Restaurant Fortuna in Spisska Sobota! Small and totally unexpected, but they would deserve a michelin star or at least a falstaff voting

Miriam Bentfeld

bellissimo e perfetto per gira in famiglia

Giuseppe Ganci

This is the most gorgeous place - an undiscovered paradise with very reasonable prices. We had so much fun rowing a boat at Stary Pleso, hiking the mountains, and eating pierogi at the Grand Hotel Kempinski. The air was clean and you could see stars shining so brightly in the night sky. In the evenings, colorful thunderstorms would roll through and it was just so cozy. We had a wonderful and memorable family vacation here and will be back again.

Patrik Draxler

Hoci sme stihli len Hrebienok, Beliansku jaskyňu, Bachledku a Štrbské pleso, boli sme nadšení a uchvátení. Prekrásna príroda, dobré služby, výborná strava a všade ochotný personál. Už teraz sa tešíme na ďalší pobyt! <3

Tatry su moja srdcovka a nech som kdekoľvek vzdy ma nabijú pozitívnou energiou a pozitívnym myslením. Stále mam usmev na tváři ako malé decko a v poslednej dobe mam stále stastie Aj na perfektne pocasie a skvělých ludi ❤️

Livia Laylla Lukacova

Tatry sú krásne a je tam čo obzerať veľmi sa nám tam páčilo, no pre zlé počasie sme všetko nestihli pozrieť tak určite sa tam ešte raz niekedy vrátime. Čo sa nám tam ale nepáčilo bolo parkovanie mali sme problém niekde zaparkovať, keďže tam bolo toľko veľa ľudí.

Lucia Raškovská

The most beautiful place I've ever seen before. I was astonished at this place. I will come back very soon.

Van Sinn

Kľud, pohoda, užili sme si to s rodinou. Poriadne. Hlavne kľud od ľudi-vorkoholikov, ktori sa stále len ponáhľajú a vlastne nič nemajú, lebo nikdy nikde neboli len práca, doma a nič iné. Nevedia si nič užiť, ani vlastný život, ani peniaze pre ktoré by si nechali prevŕtať koleno, len aby im nič neutieklo z účtu. Také chvíle su liekom na všetko. Ticho, pohoda.....na nezaplatenie

Ifbb Marek Leder

Nie nadarmo sa hovorí, že Tatry sú pýchou Slovenska. Krásne miesta, nádherné štíty a príroda.

Martin Lörinc

A hiker's paradise. Trails are nicely groomed and scenery glorious!

Kim Beaudet

Ve Vysokých Tatrách je vždy krásně. Se správnou partou dobrých lidí a dobře zvolenou trasou na výšlap není možné, aby člověk nebyl spokojen. S ubytováním jsme byli pokaždé maximálně spokojení.

Monika Marančáková

Krásně strávené jarní prázdniny. Lyžařské podmínky pro děti byly perfektní. Široké sjezdové tratě, přehledný terén, perfektní služby a moc příjemní lidé. Určitě se sem vrátíme.

Denisa Nováčková

Przepiękne góry, szlaki zachęcające do wędrówek, pozytywni ludzie słowem świetne miejsce na codzień jak i wakacje :)

Piotr Wróbel

Wypoczynek w Tatrach od południowej, słowackiej strony to jednak inne doświadczenia niż w powiecie nowotarskim. Łatwość dojazdu, brak korków, mało ludzi, brak wszechobecnych góralskich bud z wszelkim dobrem, cisza, spokój, swietnie przygotowane stoki, bardzo dobra infrastruktura w zakresie zakwaterowania typu pensjonat (z ciepła woda 24h). Oprócz tego fajni, przyjaźni ludzie.
