Tallinn's Kalev Spa Hotel & Water Park provides good value for money of recreation and relaxation. Because of its enormous pool, water slides and jacuzzi, the kids loved it, but I found the water too cold on most days, and the two saunas are quite small. The ambiance is contemporary and welcoming, the rooms are modest, but bright and well equipped including the mini bar. Tallinn's charming Old Town is within walking distance thanks to its strategic placement. The hotel's restaurant offers breakfast, it's quite spacious and doesn't feel overcrowded. The menu is not huge and the wine selection is tiny, but nice. Overall, the Kalev Spa Hotel & Water Park is a good family value.

Me and my partner had booked SPA package Time Together from 17.10.22 until 18.10.22 to celebrate our anniversary and have a relaxing time at Kalev Spa Hotel. Unfortunately out expectations were not met, as the stay overall was mediocre at the best. 1. The service was super average, we did not feel welcome at the Hotel, the reception staff answered our questions without hospitality. When we checked out, the staff member did not ask how the stay was, or said good-bye or anything. 2. The food itself was good, no complains there, but the way we were served dinner was unfortunate. Included in this SPA package is Romantic 2-course dinner in the Allee restaurant. In reality when we arrived at our reservation time, the waitress told us we could either go sit down wherever and receive the food included in the package, or we could just eat the food that was in the buffet. We chose the food that was included in package as that was what we paid for, but the offer for buffet gave the vibes that we could just have the leftovers from buffet and they wouldn't have to deal with us. And the "romantic" dinner was just one tea candle lit on the table after we sat down and techno music playing while we ate. We were surprised that only water was included in this dinner, as usually there would be a cocktail as well, but here we had to pay extra for it. Breakfast buffet was good, small note - a waitress dropped clean forks on the ground and just put them back into clean fork tray. 3. We chose to pay extra 19 EUR per person to visit the Sauna Oasis (18+) and honestly it was not worth it. Saunas were fine, but the pools are built square, so you can only sit up straight to not have the angle pressed against you - overall not comfortable. Also if there were 6 bubble jets in a pool, only two would work for like half a minute, then they would have to be turned on again. Only benefit was that there were no children, as general sauna and pool area was completely full. What also did not help us relax at all were the blowing of whistles in the large swimming pool, as there were trainings happening all afternoon and evening. 4. The massage - 50-minute massage for both (different oils) did not in fact include any different oils, and the room where massages were done was actually quite cold - I had goosebumps during the massage even with towel on. Also the massage was quite average - I did not feel like any of my tight spots got taken care of, more of a general smoothing than a deep massage. 5. The worst part was the Superior room we were staying in. It was on the 6th floor (elevator only goes up to 5th) and we had to take some stairs to get up to our room - there weren't many, but something to keep in mind about accessibility issues. The room felt quite small, and there were several small enough issues to not contact the reception about, but worth mentioning. The bath was leaking water, so if used more than a minute the floor would get wet. The small light on one side was not working at all. The room was quite cold, thermometer showed 20.5 degrees but it felt colder than that. We tried to set the AC to heating setting and set the temperature to higher but it was not warming up at all. It did not feel good after coming from the waterpark into a cold room where we could not get the heat up. Blankets were also quite small and not warm, and there were no extra blankets in the room. My partner has dust mite allergies, and they flared up during the night. We did not get good sleep due to these reasons. We thought about leaving feedback on the paper form provided in the room, but we saw that someone had filled another one out some time ago but it was not collected. As no one from reception asked how the stay was, our review is done here. All together, this did not feel worth it for the money we paid. We will not be visiting this hotel again.
