Staying at Vila Auska is an interesting experience. It's a look at a soviet past, at opulence and grandeur and huge rooms. It's aging a bit now especially on the outside. The setting is extremely peaceful, in the middle of a park. A car is handy as it's quite cut off. We stayed in the main building and our room was huge. The bathroom was newly refurbished and equipped with everything. The "jetted bath" was huge, but, strangely, had no jets... The layout of certain things was perhaps a bit strange, but nothing to complain about, eg, the shower is positioned in such a way that you can't help spilling water everywhere over the side of the bath (the shower is in the bath). And right next to the bath is a power socket, which we thought was perhaps unsafe. Both bathroom and room were very clean. The room itself had plenty of storage and the bed was comfortable. The indoor pool was very pleasant and warm. The beach is barely 100m away and it goes on for a long way. Walking to the pier is certainly an option, and is closer than if you try to walk to the town from the entrance of the hotel. Wifi was good. Breakfast was perhaps not quite what we're used to, but I liked the pancakes. We only stayed for one night and on the whole, I thoroughly enjoyed the experience, although it may not be to everyone's taste.
