Was a great holiday, until they forgot to schedule a driver for departing airport transfer - making the return trip very stressful.

To start- issue w pick up from airport. I let it go took public bus but the hotel interrogated me about it & no apologies- unprofessional. I’ve taken hundreds of trips rarely leave reviews bc never had an experience this bad. Aside from Finnair losing ALL my luggage, hotel was not sympathetic, did nothing to try to help. This is a “high end resort” Mind you! I’ve stayed in hostels w much better service. They don’t have luggage service anyway I saw elderly guests lugging their luggage far away to their cabins in the snow in the cold... Front desk is full of foreign employees who know nothing about proper customer service / communication. Obviously there are serious issues w management. Most of the staff stand around conversate w one another... None of the employees in the hotel greet the guests as they arrive/leave. Most of the servers in the restaurant don’t greet guests, aren’t attentive do not tidy up tables or food areas well. Cabins are adorable, scenery is beautiful but the cabins are too close together, you have zero privacy as everyone can see inside the glass. Many hairs all over my bedding & floors. The wool blanket on the bed was never washed. I understand the hot water conservation/toilet/plumbing situation (eco-friendly) will let that go but inconvenience. Didn’t go to sauna but I heard negative things. Food was mediocre not many options. My driver Aleksi was awesome so was the reindeer guy (both Finnish) My friend also was unimpressed
