Booked online and, once payment was made, a message appeared to state that another 100 Euros would be payable on arrival. This was supposed to include final cleaning of the chalet.
On arrival, followed arrows from reception which was closed undergoing renovations. Second reception was also closed. Went to the restaurant which was the only staffed area. Name and chalet number were listed on a notice board and keys left inside chalet.
Checked in the following morning and signed a piece of paper which agreed a debit from my credit card if I didn't perform a number of tasks before leaving. This included cleaning. So what was the 100 Euro payment for?
There were so many flies. Couldn't open a window without inviting more inside.
A few hairs in the shower drain. Torn up playing cards under one of the mattress protectors. Wi-fi for one device only.
Left after two nights. No plans to return.
In addition to a lovely beach, Noordwijk has many nice restaurants, shopping facilities and sightseeing possibilities. Especially in summer it is crowded and full of life! In Noordwijk you will also find a marina, bowling center, space center, tennis courts, riding stables and much more! Along the coast lie numerous villages, each with its own atmosphere. The famous flower fields are also in the immediate vicinity. In the spring, this is a real attraction!
To get to the beach or the surrounding dune area, forests and fields a bike is suitable. You can rent bikes and go-karts in the park. There’s even a recharging station for your electric bicycle.
