Black Beach Suites is set in one of the most beautiful places in Iceland, just a couple of hours drive from Reykjavik. The elegant suites are in a league of their own, boasting all amenities, a breath taking view, great service in an area renowned for its exquisite views.
We intended to use this accomodation to travel further east towards Hofn. However, the E1 was closed due to a snow storm. Once opened we attempted to reach the apartments but became stuck in a drift. A call to the reception soon saw a JCB sent to our rescue and after hauling us out we arrived. The apartments are in blocks of three - warm, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom area was very modern. The kitchen had two hobs, a microwave and Dolce Gusto coffee machine (pods included). There were the usual pots, pans and frying pan. A large flat screen TV was mounted on the wall with free access to Netflix. Wifi was also available. The lounge window was the full height of the room and led to a small patio (unfortunately full of snow!!). As the apartments are in a raised location the views to Reynisfjara and Dyrholaey are stunning and uninterrupted. The friendliness and customer service of the chap on reception was exceptional - thank you for a lovely stay.
Let me start off by saying that everything about this place was just perfect! The location was also superb because Vik town was only a 7 min drive and you can get all your supplies from the Kronan grocery store at the town and prepare cozy meals to enjoy with the stunning view these apartments have to offer. It’s very spacious for a studio apartment as it has a separate area at the entrance to keep your luggage and shoes along with a cupboard and a dressing mirror. Then when you enter through the second door you get your sleeping area, lounge and the kitchen. If you are staying in Vik, I guarantee you will not regret if you pick this place! Loved cooking in the kitchen as it was very well equipped. Staff is helpful and they will not bother you during your entire stay. They cleaned our rooms everyday while we were gone and it was always nice to return to a clean spotless apartment after a day of sightseeing. We spent 4 nights there and it was a much needed relaxing stop. All the attractions in Vik are pretty close. If you go during the winter, feel free to make a snowman outside your apartment like I did! And they had really great WiFi and NETFLIX! So at night my husband and I wound up with a warm homemade dinner, nice glass of wine and watched F.R.E.N.D.S! Thank you for an amazing stay!!
Arriving late at black beach suites (roughly 2am!), the management made arrangements for us to access our suite.
Staff were always polite, calling us mid-way through our stay to ask if we would like a cleaner.
The suite itself was very well equipped in a stunning location. You could barely hear the neighbours and this was like a proper home from home.
