    The staff could be a little more friendly and forthcoming with information. Restaurants are a little on the cheap and massified side with not super service. Better to travel to a nearby village or town.

    In a great natural environment this is a very well thought hotel with comfortable and elegant rooms. The spa centres are amazing. In the surroundings, nice villages with good outing and restaurant options.

    The air conditioning in one of our rooms didn't work. We had to ask three times - in 2 days- until someone came to fix it. We couldn't sleep because the room was too hot on the first night. No compensation was offered . The dinner on the a la cart restaurant was pricey and very disappointing .

    Room is comfortable and quite spacious. The waitress Milena was serving us in the dining room, she was always with the smile and prompt in bringing our drink orders. Massages in spa Armonia were all really good especially the massage Vitae which was done by Daria. We liked the spa Orhidelia. The restaurant in Orhidelia has pretty good choice of food. I had Caesar salad on one occasion and a salmon on another and both were good too.

    We had to pay additional 120 eur for entrance to orhidelia (2 days). Imo that is just excessive - we were guests of the sotelia and that should be included. We paid 384 eur for 2 nights and then additional surcharge of 29 eur per person/day just seems like too much (120 in total for 2 days). And the other wellnes thermalia is just not worth it. It looks horrible and it’s overcrowded.

    Breakfast was delicious. Choice was plentiful, i didn’t miss anything. The only problem was that i couldn’t try everything in 2 days. Same goes for dinner, desserts were absolutely amazing. Staff was very kind, rooms were perfect. View not so much though. Maids did an outstanding job, everything was super clean and they change towels and bathrobes daily. Wellness orhidelia is magical. Best spa in slovenia imo. Also saunas in orhidelia are just perfect, arhitecture and design is 10/10. No other wellness can compare to this, honestly.

    It was a hot weekend and air conditioning could have been a bit better. Also, prices aren't low, but it's probably well worth the money.

    All of the staff was very friendly, including reception desk, restaurants and wellness. Breakfast and dinner were very rich. We would highly recommend the romantic package ("wine and chocolate") that, other than regular service, includes sparkling wine and chocolate pralines after check-in, welcome drinks, SPA treatment with massage, romantic dinner with candles and unlimited free entrance into wellness Orhidelia which is arguably the best part of Terme Olimia. Other than that, part of the wellness centre Termalija is currently being renovated. It should also be amazing once it's completed, but if you are looking for quite and peaceful room, ask for the room facing back side of the hotel (i.e. forest).

    I stayed here several times either alone for one night to make a break of long trip or with my family for several days holidays. This place is one of my favorite and after almost 10 years of my first stay it is still high level services and facility. Everything you see on hotel web site or on booking.com is just as shown, even better. Probably one of the best Wellness/SPA I visited (and I visited many)

    - we would like to have animation program for kids longer than several hours per day. It's not a big deal but it would be more convenient

    - both wellness and spa center on the thermal water are amazing. Everything was great - swimming pools, kids pools, a lot of different saunas, whirlpools. Note, that access to the newer wellness center - Orhidelia - should be paid separately, but the cost is not big. Also, they are working on renovation and the new one is promised to be open in December 2017. I think it is definitely worth to visit - nice kids club (always open even there are no animators - very convenient) & several outdoor playgrounds - food in the main hotel restaurant and restaurants in the terme territory - really great coffee at the bar - friendly staff - big water park very close to the terme (outdoor) - a lot of opportunities for mountains/forest biking and hiking - very fresh forest air - room cleanness - wine tasting room - a big garage and outside parking lot - several small minimarkets around - organized sightseeing tours around

    Have enjoyed 3 days at this beautiful hotel. Fully lived up to expectations. You should be aware that the Wellness Orhedelia and Wellness Termalija are 2 different areas and you only have access to the Wellness Termalija in the normal hotel price. (Can be dependent on special offer) You have to pay a small amount for additional access to the newest Wellness Orhedelia per day. But it can be recommended and the quality is good. With access to both wellness areas (passage directly between them) is very large. The sauna areas are without swimsuits (towel and bathrobe) and only for age +14 The breakfast is balanced and healthy. Nice clean the rooms and friendly staff. Definitely the best wellness hotel I have ever visited.
