    Quiet and comfortable, beautiful lake view from room, very tasty food in the restaurant. Interesting and cool activities right next to it. Do not miss the opportunity to go on a barefoot path. I'll definitely go back.

    really a beautiful place to stay and enjoy nature. The suites are cool and comfortable, equipped with antique interior elements, tastefully decorated, and have a wonderful view across the lake from the balcony. And here's a super-large library, high-value literature for a variety of interests. Really a place you would like to recommend to everyone to stay.

    We enjoyed our short stay at Vaguma! The room with a lake view was perfect, cosy and very spaciuos staying with kids. Beds comfortable, a nice balcony to spend warm summer evenings. And the bare foot path was excellent attraction for the whole family! Would recommend a lot!

    Quite an unusual and pleasant place (barefoot trail park). Never saw anything like this. The room was of a modest quality but this is exactly what you expect to have in a national park (rooms at Grand Canyon lodges are far worse, for example).

    Due to the long summer days the room is very bright long into the night and very early in the morning. Some darker light blocking curtains would be nice.

    The balcony and views of the lake were quite peaceful. The hotel had various ways to enjoy nature. The barefoot path was an interesting experience. The breakfast was pretty good. Our room was large and had its own library of latvian books. Dinner at the restaurant was good.

    The receiption guided us to normal hiking route far a bit from hotel while there is better hiking route within a few steps of hotel and has many different activities such as football, vollyball, barbeque place and many nice sitting places. The bed has bed bug that cause ieching and we couldnt sleep well. The shampoo and shower gel have unpleasant odor even the water in toilet. The area is full of mosquitos. Tbe view from balcony is useless the lake is covered by tall trees.

    Walking, hiking and playing football. The hotel is sarounded with nice views and many activities.

    woke up at around 6 am from the noise coming from the lobby/restaurant where the personnel was obviously preparing the breakfast and was cleaning cutlery very loud. The hotel style blend of Latvian folk and modern is sometimes awkward.

    The place by itself holds something magic inside. The evening sunset from the terrace of the room with a lake view and pine trees is irreplaceable. Room is very spacious, light and clean. Large and comfortable bed.

    Nice location but not a spa
    • Leisure trip

    • Family Suite
    • Stayed 1 night

    We chose this place because it was advertised as a spa and wellness center. There was no such thing as a spa. Their website lists a variety of massages you can get and while I did fill in the form to reserve one, there was no answer. When arriving at the property I was told that the website does not work and that there is nothing they can offer. This was very upsetting since we took the last room available although we were 2 persons, we took a family room just because we wanted that massage and spa so badly. We could have stayed in a cheaper place. Also, it's great for families with kids as there are many activities to choose from, but kids tend to run around all of the time including on the terrace which is directly linked to the rooms' balconies.

    Comfortable bed, nice location, big breakfast, nice that they have a decent restaurant. We took a boat ride on the lake which was very relaxing. The location is just beautiful if you love nature and the place is pretty big. Interesting welcome drink in the restaurant.

    children oriented with questionable decoration, common spaces could be better aired, poor quality of breakfast and dinner, breakfast was not ready at 8 am on second day. Duvets too hot in summer but this is a problem in all baltic hotels...

    quiet situation with view on the lake near to excellent Kemeri main trail, while the village of Kemeri and quite distant Jurmala are not worth visiting if not for the beach when the weather is fine
