We decided to stop over for one evening on our flight from Europe en route to Boston. This place really has the feel of a spa rather than a hotel, and I mean that in the best way. However, this is not the place to bring small children as it is very quiet, peaceful and zen-like. Also, there is no bar or restaurant, obviously (but they do make reservations for you at the nearby Lava Restaurant at the Blue Lagoon), but it does have a very lovely breakfast room overlooking it's own lagoon which serves great coffee/tea and it provides a healthy, nutritious breakfast selection. There is a soda machine in the lobby. The rooms look just like they do on the Blue Lagoon website and actually seem a bit bigger in real life with an almost surreal, small patio looking onto a lavascape horizon. The beds were extremely comfortable, and there was no shortage of hot water in the tiled bathroom. Their toiletries were the Blue Lagoon brand shampoo and conditioner.
Unique Quality: We came for one night, specifically to swim at the Blue Lagoon and there is a lovely black sand/gravel path through the landscape from the hotel all the way to the front door of the Blue Lagoon which takes about 10 minutes. If you have never been to Iceland, just this path alone is enough to be almost a bit shocking in it's exotic atmosphere and beauty, you can hardly believe your eyes. As nice as the Blue Lagoon (and their restaurant Lava) was, the big bonus was that the clinic itself had a lagoon to rival it, and there were no throngs of tourists there. The only catch is that it is open to the non-treatment getting guests only in the mornings and in the evenings. If our flight wasn't leaving so early we would have had a swim there in the morning. TIP: Even if it's summer, and seemingly quiet weather, dress properly for the walk over to the Blue Lagoon (windbreaker, good shoes). The wind and steam and fog really got us quite wet by the time we walked over.
